I like to create these threads a few times a year just to check in with you guys inform myself on how your forum experience has been. I have two questions...

1. What do you like about T3G? Why do you actively use this as your Tacoma forum of choice?

2. What is something that could be changed or added? Or anything else you'd like to bring up.


Thanks!

What I like about T3G is also the reason why it is my forum of choice, the environment here is productive, positive, insightful, helpful, welcoming, and just full of good people trying to help someone else.

Changed or added? Not sure at the moment.

I'm just going to second what Mr. Nobody said. I 100% agree.

EDIT: Actually I have one thing to add. I'd like to see more regional stuff. I'd love to go to a PNW meetup. Yeah, I know if I want to do that I should plan it myself but I'm busy! ;) I'd also like to see more activity on the PNW buy and sell section but, something about leading a horse to water.

I love the community and how specific the topics are. I don't like bloat so having a niche forum is awesome.

2. What is something that could be changed or added? Or anything else you'd like to bring up.
The only frustration I've had is with the search. I dislike that it will exclude short words or common words. For example... I want to find out what oil people are using so I search 'Engine oil' and am met only with results pertaining to 'engine' which I'm sure you can see wouldn't be very helpful. There may be a way around this, but I am not aware of such black magic and would love to see it work without hoping somebody called it engine lubricant instead. For reals my only beef though. Love everything else!

You're right about the search. That annoys me too. It is a technical limitation of the server, for some reason. But I will look into alternative search systems.

There is only one issue I have. And it might not even be a forum issue.

On mobile, which is my primary use of the site, trying to do a detailed explanation, the things jumps all over the place, deleting words/ sentences and it looks like I have a ton of grammar mistakes.

Even typing this, it’s removing words, jumping lines and not letting me space between words lol.

Spacing paragraphs also likes to lower case the first word and when you capitalize the first letter it will back space you the the previous paragraph. Lol if that makes sense.

Like I said. It might not even be this forum doing it, could be my phone.

Are you using an iPhone?

Either way, I know exactly what you mean because that happens to me as well. I think there is a fix coming for this from the developers of the software that I use, within a few weeks. I mean, I hope they do. It drives me crazy too and there is nothing I can do about it.

Another thing that I can't change is the fact that you won't get push notifications if you're using an iPhone, but you will if you have an Android. Why? Idk, ask Apple.

Yeah I’m in iPhone. It’s not a huge deal just takes times to fix lol

It gets me very frustrated. Hopefully they'll have that fixed. The update I'm talking about just went into beta today so it should be released within a week or so.

Here's another... add a straight-up donation option to the support page! I wanna send some money towards the forum but don't really have need for a patch or a sticker haha
Wow, thank you.

I did recently add that, but I haven't added it to the stickers page yet. Right now, it is on the forum homepage in the sidebar location:
1595532686646.png


Let me see if I can get it to display on the page you're talking about as well.

2. What is something that could be changed or added? Or anything else you'd like to bring up.

Only thing I would change is make a dedicated section for off-topic stuff if there isn't one already. Hobbies, sports, etc.

Thank you.

The section for that stuff would be here: https://tacoma3g.com/forums/everything-else.13/

One other thing I might suggest, as it is you can only buy a single sticker + a $5.00 donation for $10 and you can only buy a single sticker w/o a donation once AFAICT. I'd like to give the stickers to people I meet with cool Tacomas but for $10 a pop that's not really doable (Although I did leave my extra ROTM sticker under someones wiper.) If there were a way to make a stand alone bulk sticker order that would be nice.

Also, I would totally buy a T3G T-shirt

Oh boy. You guys have no idea how cool the revision to the "store" is going to be. I've been working on it non-stop and it is overwhelmingly feature rich.

Picture any online shopping interface but built directly into your forum account/the forum itself. So yes, those suggestions are coming very soon.

Love this forum because nobody is an asshole and if they are it's small enough for them to get the boot relatively quickly... lol
I recently deleted my TW account because of how toxic that forum is. Nearly every forum I click on is bloated with people in arguments

If possible, I'd love to see some more T3G merch. I have the current patch but a T3G logo patch would be sick too (maybe I've missed this in the past?)
and like a hat or t-shirt or something.
