Thumbs up to which situation?
I think its a great idea as long as its separated in a way that can be easily accessed by all
There is always a ton of ideas and great projects to see and read about out there that ofcourse can give everybody here ideas and inspiration

I noticed the beta part after I posted. I’m not sure I would use it at all because it seems like it could potentially ruin things with some type of catastrophic problem. A lot of your database would be dependent on the add-on not fucking up.

I do however love the idea of what it can do, so we’ll see.
I’ve also had some problems with that developer and some of his other add-ons before.

Good to know. I won’t attempt using that, but the idea was cool for 5 minutes.

For those with this exact opinion, do you still feel this strongly even if it is possible to completely hide the content you don't care about? Just making sure you guys understand you could choose to remove the 4Runner or 2nd gen Taco etc. content from your view.

I am very torn on this whole thing. I'm not sure what a sister site would do to T3G, either. Would that spread our community too thin?
I'm a newer member/contributor but honestly, this site has a much better sense of community than TW. The members seem just as much as Tacoma enthusiasts as they are polite and courteous to each other. It seems every 4 posts on TW is someone flaming someone else. I prefer to come to T3G because of the narrowed focus of the 3G and it seems people are just a lot nicer. For sure if you expanded and had other vehicles included, there is added benefit but for a novice car mod guy, it just adds to my confusion of what to do!

Anyway, my 2 cents would be for you to create a sister site too.

Thank you for your input Tony. And I appreciate the kind words about T3G.

I think it is basically decided (in my own mind) that I will eventually create a sister site because of the feedback you guys have given me on my original idea. The sister site will include all Toyota 4x4 vehicles except for the 3rd gen Tacoma, because this site is home to that. I feel that's the best way to go about it and I see it working out well especially since it will have virtually no effect on T3G.

Sorry I am late to the convo. As I am a new to the truck mod scene i tend to be more active in asking for advice rather than giving but im learning along the way. anyways i read over the thread and just wanted to give my input that I am all for the sister site idea. this forum is by far my favorite platform of all that i have checked out so i think it would be cool if it was opened up to other toyota models as a separate site. I’d rather not have it combined and rebranded as a kind of new and improved TW because i thought this site was so cool and unique that its 3g specific and not overwhelming with information and all other points that have been previously made in the thread opposing expansion. (plus personally i think the branding of tacoma 3g is really cool and would hate to see it fade out for a big site.)

i think in a perfect world there could be a separate site for each model/generation of toyota under a big parent site (toyota rigs) or what ever was decided on. and then have a different admin like tyler for each site being someone with that specific truck/suv... so example; there’d be like a 3rd gen 4 runner page and a 1st gen tacoma page etc all under the parent site and they would all model the same management/culture/ platform that this site has. obviously that’s super ambitious and i don’t know the first thing about managing forums like this but since what i liked about this site is that it’s specific to my truck, the platform is great, and the communities great so i just thought that was a cool thought that i didn’t see mentioned in the post already

These are the possibilities:

One site, T3G becomes ToyotaRigs

Two sites, T3G remains unchanged and ToyotaRigs is a brand new site (that looks the same), but starts from scratch

Two sites, T3G remains unchanged and ToyotaRigs is a separate site but all the members and posts from T3G are imported into it so it is not starting from scratch

As you can see by my post count I'm new to the forum and new to Tacomas and 4x4's bought my 2019 Tacoma in early April. TW was the first site I found and joined but was immediately disappointed by how non intuitive and unfriendly it was and now Tacoma 3G has become my primary go to site. I found this site when somebody left a Tacoma 3G sticker under my windshield wiper at Overland Expo in Falgstaff, whoever it was a big Thank You!
The point is that I joined this site because it was 3G specific, intuitive and friendly.
If I have a vote, I vote for keeping it 3G specific with a sister site.
Thanks you for letting me voice my opinion.
