    Our code and build threads

    We are nearly at 200 members which was our goal in the beginning.

    We are, in our opinion, a unique forum with unique ideas that are pretty much based on the way we want members to be treated.

    If you have not already done so could you please take a moment to read our code.

    It can be found here http://www.falconforums.com.au/announcement.php?f=9

    Something else people might not be aware of is our custom build threads where we give ownership to people doing interesting things with Fords. These threads offer great value to us, the site owners, and to the public as they show case passion and professionalism.

    These people have complete control over the content as they would if their cars were being displayed in public so we would ask everyone to be respectful and not abuse them or the process.

    On this site we monitor our goals and the biggest one we have is our moderation targets which we have set at zero.

    That's right. No deleted threads, manipulated posts, or closed topics and this applies to our custom builds too. This is the standard we expect to be observed site wide and in accordance with our code we wish that everyone be treated with respect and discuss issues as adults would. There is tremendous freedom and with that comes responsibility and we are always on hand ot offer support and guidance.

    This is a true team effort and we are very pleased with how things have developed over the last 5 months.

    Special mention goes to Colville for helping us shape our code.
    History is a statement, the future is a question.

    Job well done! Congrats Ian and everyone else involved in providing this great site.

    Thanks Jeff for the kind words and your valuable contributions so far.

    you only need to look in the thread regarding the developments at FPV to realise this forum is able to operate at an adult level.

    The major difference here, is that we aren't crying wolf every time Ford gets a setback. Sure, they are in some trouble, but that isn't the be all and end all of Ford. They're not about to close down tomorrow, but for some people on another forum, every time Ford's sales are a little slower than we expected, Ford is shutting down tomorrow.

    We have a small thread on the two week shut down, but that is all. It isn't that the sky is falling, Ford are still here, still manufacturing cars, and still moving forward with the 2014 Falcon.
    I'm in love with my car. Got a feel for my automobile.

    That's right Maurie. It people like Rob, Andrew, Andrew, Dave, Tim, Jeff, Colville, Gavin, Gab, Norm ..... See where I am going with this. First names, people and members last.

    Each and every one of our contributing core members have been awesome and don't think for one minute that its gone without notice or gratitude.
    I think we are getting a good mix of news for awareness, some great personal content in the builds and editorials. Those without facebook won't know that our facebook page posted James GT comparison on the FPV wall. Its a bit dead over there at the moment, we have permission to do that sort of thing and it creates interest for James; for consumers looking at the product and obviously, as its under our name, for us too. The article is also published on the front page.
