Do you mean like some of us already do?

I always wondered how people do that...I obviously am not one of the majorly computer literate members, although I can usually
manage to post pictures--not always.
Like Mike, I frequent about 4 forums daily and post specific questions in different places depending upon relevance, since there is a lot of cross-reference-ability between my Cougars and my Mustangs. It depends upon what I'm trying to do--sometimes I just post on the FE Forum, as there the car doesn't matter, it's just the engine. I always come here for Cougar stuff and hit the other Cougar Forum maybe once a month. I am always signed in when I come and rarely am bumped off, but I've bookmarked the Forum page, so maybe that's why? The only thing I don't like about this Forum is the inability to "mark all topics as read," which I do from time to time on my other Forums...otherwise, this seems to be a good format to me.
I think member participation tends to wax and wane, depending on time of year and what projects are underway. Some of us are hibernating while it rains...during these times, I find that I spend more posting time on the off-topic areas where I "hang" out than anywhere else. I still read and follow technical stuff every day, but I don't have much to say when I'm not going out to the garage. Others have broken engines (also me) and are trying to psyche up to do something about it and also have nothing productive to add until something changes. I personally try to exercise restraint and not be a post whore by creating threads just to talk to hear myself talk, although frequently
want to post pictures of my car and gush about how much I like it with nothing of note to actually say--so I refrain; I think FB is the place where people tend to do that, which is why it's so popular.
