We are considering changing the way the make/model forums are layed out in the ATV section of the site.

Currently, there is a single forum for each brand (Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, etc.)

This layout is pretty good however, some of the brand forums do not get a lot of traffic at the moment since the ATV section of ThumperTalk is relatively new.

We are considering removing the brand specific forums and replacing them with "type" forums as follows:

Sport ATV

Utility ATV

UTV/Side-x-Side

Youth

3-Wheel

Then, as it is now, when a new thread is created, it would be "tagged" with the brand that the thread is about. While the default view is to see all threads, for example, if you only wanted to see thread about Yamaha, you'd just click on that name. So, filtering is quick and easy.

We believe this new layout would help the forums grow by having more people participating in each forum instead of spread across all the different brands. If you're looking for something specific to Yamaha, you would still be able to filter to just see Yamaha threads, however if you have something that can benefit from the advice from anyone with a Sport ATV regardles of its brand, your thread would be visable to them all in one place.

Then, over time, as the ATV section grows, we can move back to brand name forums if the activity level supports it.

So, if you have any input, now is the time. We'll be making a decision on which way to go early next week.
