    ALERT: Tomorrow, The Start of A Brand New SRF Format!

    Tomorrow when you open up SRF, you will see a completely changed forum format. Why?

    When we started out with just the Stingray model, it made sense to have many SRF different sub-sections, such as "StingRay Wheels and Tires," "Stingray Accessories," StingRay Videos and Photos," etc. When the Z06 was revealed, we almost doubled-up forum sections by adding comparable sub-sections for the Z06, e.g., creating separate ones for "Z06 Wheels and Tires," "Z06 Accessories," and "Z06 Photos and Videos."

    Then the questions started, with members' asking, "I am confused, where do I post this thread?" Moderators increasingly have been moving threads and individual posts within threads.

    And then when we got beautiful new Grand Sports, and not-surprisingly and not-unfairly, GS owners wanted their own six to ten unique GS sections.

    But due to our growing model-specific sections, more questions have continue to arise, such as, "where do I post a video that contains Stingrays and GS's and Z06's?"

    Within the next year, we are getting a new ZR1 model, creating its six to ten sub-sections?

    We moderators decided that as we are one equal, all-encompassing C7 family, that the very best format is to eliminate separate/redundant "sub sections by model." Hence tomorrow you will see one consolidated, streamlined new SRF format.

    We will all adjust to our new forum format. Perhaps we will need to do minor pruning and additions later, but we are not going to revert to our past multiple-redundancies of having the same topics for each Corvette model.

    Thank you for your understanding. It will take all of us some time to get used to our new format. It parallels the forum simplicity that has worked very well for many other car forums, and will take us most easily into the future of proliferating C7 models.

    Sounds like a good plan. I just hope the Z06's and GS's don't mind us pesky little Z51's crowding their space...

    A regular Stingray without a single option is a thing of beauty and one terrific sports car!

    To be alive and kicking means we are on the right side of the grass. A very good thing.

    I'm also very scared.

    I like all topics on the forum. I guess the "all-encompassing C7 family" may include the C8 when it debuts. Looking forward to the new format. Thanks for your efforts.

    My boss would tell me, "If you don't like change, you're in the wrong profession." So .... when I was offered early retirement, I took it.

    These streamlining changes could not be accomplished without a lot of hard work behind the scenes by admin; for example around 10,000 threads are going to be moved into consolidated areas/sections.
