PLEASE READ - new board for order problems?

Guys,

It's no secret that the order process is a nightmare right now. The forum is filling up with so many threads about complaints, wait times, ordering issues, etc. that it's getting difficult to have other conversations. I'd like to propose that we set up a new board specifically to handle all of these types of posts dealing with ordering issues, build dates, and so on. This would not only serve to consolidate everyone with similar issues into a single area, bu also separate those posts from the rest of the site, which is more geared to either current owners or potential new owners needing information unrelated to orders. I'm beginning to get PMs and emails that it's hard to find other info from the mix of posts.

What do you guys think? Would it be helpful to create a separate board (possibly a child board under buying&leasing) to consolidate the ordering issues?

Whatever admin feels is best. I do not think we need a separate board.

Re: PLEASE READ - new board for order problems?

I don't think this is really necessary, but then again I'm not the admin.

(As I just stated on another thread...)
Sure, there is a lot of dialogue going on about people waiting for their orders...that's because the vast majority of people that are interested in Enclaves are in that group of people waiting for their orders!

Mine is on order, but I'm not simply complaining about the wait. I'm gathering good information and insights from others that are waiting (or were waiting) and in the meantime I'm learning TONS about the vehicle. I'm no genius, but I'm pretty sure that's exactly what this blog is intended to do!

I would support this but I think we can function fine if we need to keep it the way it is.

I don't care (not that what I think matters!). Sounds to me like the people who are complaining about the whining are whining themselves!

Why not put it to a vote - create a poll!

I have a hunch that the majority of active participants in this forum are in fact people waiting for their ordered Enclaves. But, I might be wrong. I know that once I actually get mine, I'll probably be way less active on here (I'll be too busy enjoying my actual Enclave!).

Re: PLEASE READ - new board for order problems?

I will ask people to vote Yes. Even though the demand for Enclaves will eventually settle down (and alleviate the problem of unhappy order-process folks) I present these two arguments For a Yes vote.

1. When I perform a search on this forum for information about Enclaves, or issues with Enclaves, I can now expect that most responses will be about people waiting for their order/allotment. This is "noise" to me.

2. Admin will make the new site a "sister site" so it will be super easy to switch between the original forum and the new one on the fly.
