The spotted card idea is still a good one. We do it on MM and I think it would work great here.
Basically, anyone who takes pics of Evo's at an event can place the "Spotted" card on the Evo's window or trailer or whatever. Put that photos of their car and other photos from the event can be found at dirtyevo.com.

I like that. The only thing is when we go to the DSM/EVO Shootout. We may need a little help with that. LOL. So many EVOs so little time.

Liking the ideas, and changes already in place. I'll whip a quick U to place a card on an Evo, they are few and far between up here. Evo Stalker! I was also thinking a spot on the homepage for videos, which could change. Smevans posted a bunch on EvoM, and I was hooked. I was watching the video on the sno thread, and thought a soundtrack of the Evo revving, shifting, blow-off valve PSHHHH, would be great on the homepage. Don't know if sound could be put up w/o video, even a theme song would be cool, take ideas and vote on one.

I like the video idea. Adding a media section to the front page is a good idea.

Negative.

David prohibits soliciting and handing out of promotional items such as business cards or literature if you are not an approved Shootout vendor. This would be a no no.

Since we all are what id like to think a rare breed, ( evo, lancer owners who race offroad) lets expand the field a little. Is there a dirty DSM or Galant vr4 (baby evo) forum? Lets make some talk sections on and for dsm owners. I'm sure 95% of us have owned or thought of owning a dsm at some point :) Maybe we can get more people on the forum to get some more talk going.

Maybe even let a few neon guys in ;)

What do you guys think any ideas to add or comments?

Also Im talking to a friend of mine who I spoke about before about making a Into style video and Ill see what we can do and if hes still interested. Maybe get a few guys from the North East together and make a cool video on some dirt/snow/what ever and have that on the forum.

Theres a general Mitsubishi section, think it need to be more specific?

I'm bringing this back on the discussion table. I'm all for it but I would like to get thoughts and opinions from other members. We could expand to include rally DSM's and still be true to the DirtyEvo.com name. All it would entail is adding a DSM specific section under the "DirtyEvo Car Specific" forum and possibly even add a catch phrase under the DirtyEvo.com logo like "The EVO and DSM Rally Forum".

I don't want to do it if it will bother other active members though. That is why I want to hear your thoughts. I know DSM's have a bad name for being unreliable heaps owned by high schoolers who want everything spoon fed to them and free, but the guys that rally/rallyx them don't fall into that mold.

Another thing I am working on is the calendar. Right now it only goes up to December of last year. I think this could be valuable resource that can benefit our entire community. Imagine all the Rallies and Rallycrosses for the entire year, across the entire country (continent?), all in one place. I think we could do it and it would bring in new members (and hopefully bring back current members).

I am also going to bring back the spotted cards. I invited a guy today at the Rallyx with an Evo X but its so much easier just to hand them a card and offer a quick explanation, or slip it under someones wiper if you don't know them. I will see about getting the old format from Sean, since the links are dead now, and then getting them printed up.

Any other suggestions you guy have, lets hear them!
