Default metal fabricating section

somewhere to show off peoples bumpers and other things that have been fabbed by themselves. also could lead to members fabbing stuff for others. i saw this on R/F and thought it was an awesome section

Hrmm... I can see creating something like "Fabrication & Tool Talk."

What do you guys think? Let's hear some more opinions.

Meet and Greet Snapshot subform
Rename the Media section to Ranger Snapshots. some people post truck pictures in wrong section. They will post them in the Photography section instead

I have enough pics and topics to keep that sub forum going... Heck make me a mod for that section, Tom. I'm quite knowledgeable about metal working and fabrication

The people have spoken.... so here you guys go:
http://www.fordrangerforum.com/fabrication-tool-tech/

If you guys could help me out and let me know what threads should be moved to that section I would appreciate it. You can use the report post icon and in the notes say move it to the fabrication section, or you can simply PM me the link(s) to the thread(s).

Meets and Greets snapshots sounds like a decent idea, just need to decide which forum it should go into.

I don't think we should rename the Media section to "Ranger Snapshots" since it would be weird to have a vehicle video, and photography section inside a forum with that name. I think the reason people post truck pictures in the photography section is because they simply see "photography" and think that is the appropriate forum to post *any* photo. I'll make a sticky or do something so users in the photography forum know it's for non-ranger pictures.

haha the forum is the smallest most inactive forum on the whole site (since I just created it) so we don't need a moderator to moderate such inactivity.... however, maybe if the fabrication forum becomes off the hook with just an insane amount of activity we can discuss it. lol
