Re: MitsuStyle.com

I like the idea of separating 3s's, evos, and dsms etc. I just hope we don't lose the "unity" that this site has to offer. I'm also a dsm owner and I am sad to see a strictly dsm based website expand. For me it just makes it harder to find what I'm looking for. I just hope it works out no matter what.

Re: MitsuStyle.com

The only forums I would think that would be broken down would be the tech forums. No need to break anything else apart.

Re: MitsuStyle.com

I think that the change will be good. I kinda agree, the given reason is kinda silly, but whatever.
I am sure that the change will be taken care of in a good way and no one will find the quality of the site dropping.
As far as the noob thing goes, don't be a complete dumbass, and then maybe u won't get owned.
Pimpin' style FTW!!

Re: MitsuStyle.com

I have watched this site grow since the begining...(with my kids and their friends) and now as a family...well both my sons are members, along with many of their friends and me!
Everyone hates change. But change is good. It will bring in fresh ideas, new topics, & best of all new friends to chat with, who like everyone on this site like their cars and want to have fun. So it maybe hard to make the change....but worth it in the long run.
So good luck "MitsuStyle.com"

Re: MitsuStyle.com

No HondaStyle.com? Haha

I think the name change will bring in a bit more traffic (hopefully for the better). Its amazing how this site has grown since its conception in....let me think here.....2002? I think thats when I joined at least.

*edit* That thing to the left says I joined on Aug '03 which doesn't seem right. I know I first started whoring on the site sometime during my soph. year of college which was Sept '02 - May '03.

Re: MitsuStyle.com

I've owned the name sometime around 1999 - 2000 and i think the first forums went up around 2001 and it's been downhill ever since.

Yup, I think I was something like the 6th member on the "old, old old" forum.
Back when you were actively recruiting on MIAC.com.

We welcome the change up here at the shop as well. This will still be THE local dsm board, but if we can also start to welcome the other Mitsubishi enthusists, so much the better.

It is like Chris said at the dyno day, we all have the same problems. A parent company that doesn't like to honor warranty and recall work, strong motors, weak trannies, and worthless accessory components. Couple that with the various grades of plastic dash's among the different cars, and in a nutshell we all deal with similar shit. Granted some cars are fwd, awd, n/a, turbo..etc but there is a common theme, we are all Mitsubishi Enthusists.

Didnt the site lose everything sometime in the spring/early summer of 02 and all of the members had to re-sign up? I thought I remember something like that? I have been reading since about that time but never joined til recently.


I dont think the new name will be a bad thing at all. The whole DSM crowd is getting smaller and smaller every month.

Allan, are you planning on keeping the dsmstyle.com address too? Like have it redirect you to the new name? I think that would be a smart idea.

Re: MitsuStyle.com

yeah, we have gone through 3 periods of actual forum changes resulting in 3 times people have had to sign up. Finally biting the bullet with the vB software was the way to go.

We are keeping the DSMStyle.com name. I'll never give that up. Shit I still think I have midwestdsm still pointing here as well. Mitsustyle.com already points here. There is probably a few others we have snagged up. Chris knows more on that one. And there's one I want him to grab. lol

Re: MitsuStyle.com

Personally I don't understand why people feel there is a need for change, especially after a huge debate already took place a few months back when the name change to MidwestDSM.com was proposed. I remember when Allan was on the verge of throwing everything in the dumpster and selling the DSMStyle.com domain but as already pointed out, the site is been a huge success. People from all realms of the Mitsu and non-Mitsu world already are participating members here. If someone feels that they're not welcome because they don't drive a DSM, they need to open their eyes and look at the community that has developed here, and look past what everyone drives. I have been an active member since mid-2002 and did not own a DSM until mid-2004. Having DSM in the domain name obviously didn't bother me. Quite frankly, I believe that changing the name to Mitsustyle.com is only going to invite more stupid fucking idiots who should be spamming the Newbie forum on Toonerz versus wasting everyone's time here.

This is what I am trying to avoid, we have some admin here that take the time to try and correct the way a new member acts on the forums. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. But we will continue to give ALL new members a fair shot with the change. No matter how clueless some might be. And like myself when I got my first DSM, I was totaly in the dark. Still am on some things.

This also goes with putting an end to items such as the flamdimation valve occurances.

Plain and simple, if people don't have anything good to say on the fourms don't say it. Bring it to an admin and we will deal with it from there.

I don't want to be put in a position to keep one old school member vs 20 new members who know nothing just because of post content.

Re: MitsuStyle.com

I don't mind the name change. So go for it. And yes been here for a while also. And I agree it bring more people in. My only beef is that I don't have to resign up. But I think the vb software has the covered. So do what ya want to do man. If people hate it let them deal with it. Its what you want the community to be like. Mitsu DSM who cares. If you think Mitsu is bad. Then he could of done Eagle or Plymouth.

So I am one for the new change. I think I can live threw that.

Isn't that the saying?
