    Putting level to 100 just means 100 spam instead of 25. Mods will be happy with that - not!

    And before anyone gets there heckles up, personally im not bothered if the manuals are here or not, I bought my manual off ebay , still yet to download a manual, even though I first came here searching for a gq user manual.
    The ones that go and say Gday in the intros are only doing what is asked of them and at least they're doing it unlike some others that just post rubbish up all over the place from the onset.
    With any luck the ones who post up the 25 intros will hang around a lot longer and join in a bit more, I for one was a slow starter and although I'm no more useful on here than a used bog roll, I still joined In the comradeship and have met a few top guys from being on here.

    I personally I think threads like this go against the whole principle of what I believe the forum stands for.

    And yes I also find it a pain wading past all the intros threads to look at or read other threads......... but guess what???!!!! I just flick passed them, because quite frankly there are for more pressing things to worry about.

    Think about it............

    That's just my 2 cents worth......... I'll shut up now


    What you tapin at!!!!!????
    Nicely said mate,

    I think this subject has been covered plenty!

    What is asked of someone to get the manual is to post 25 posts and that's what they do.
    If they are rubbish posts then different story.

    Lets move on.




    .........on the move

    New members are told in the introduction to "welcome a few other members and your post count will be up in no time". That's why a lot of them put up a heap of posts in the intro section.....they are told to!
    I, like a lot of others didn't even come looking for a manual and I was well over 2000 posts when I finally did download it haha. When I comes to car mechanics I'm dumb and no amount if reading the manual will fix that. It's the real people and the real life tips and experience on here that have helped me in my never ending quest to throw money at my patrol:-)
    The only thing that slightly annoys me is the near weekly "what do I need for a 2" suspension lift" question. But I can easily ignore that and go hang some sh!t on Winnie, growler or clunk. :-)

    Hey blokes, yeah the manuals aren't an issue anymore with the bandwidth. We're on our own server now so that is not the issue.

    We originally sourced all of the manuals as a bait to get more people on here to start the forum and it was a huge success. Then it got out of control with the bandwidth and I had to make the 25 post restriction to limit the downloads. Most times people do the right thing, put up an intro and welcome 24 other members. That part doesn't really bother me. They found this place because of the manuals and they might come back to ask questions as the manuals are not a complete bible of everything you need to do know to fix every single problem.

    If I was to do anything I would rather just make it free for everyone with no post restrictions.

    Hey Andy,

    What would be the problem with doing that, I know it seems a bit rude for someone to just sign up to get the manuals, but it probably would save you and the mods the hassle of deleting the spam.

    Also what if the introductions section was removed from the what's new search, so those members who don't want to troll through a bucket load of new introduction threads don't have to.

    Just some thoughts

    Hey mate, the only problem that could arise would be 1000's of other sites grabbing them and putting them all on their sites.

    We have hundreds of websites linking to us which helps our Google Rankings. Manual directories sites, PDF sites and numerous automotive sites. If we did open it up for all then we would lose those links and all of those spammy directory sites would come in and take the manuals. I know of a few people (including myself) worked for months trying to find all of these so it would be a bit of a kick in the teeth to have everyone take it off us.

    Understand that we took it off other people...lol....But to spend months finding it all and collaborating it all into one section is the winner.

    I just googled Nissan patrol and Google found this place for me. I read a bit, decided that a lot of you guys knew a lot about Patrols, a lot of you have my kinda sense of humour, even BA.

    Manuals are a bonus for me to be honest.

    Site is what it is and what the users make it to be honest.
    It is now official, we are not quite so sh@t at cricket as we were! Rugby Union is a different matter.
