there has been much talk and fuss about "The Clique" and " The Inner Circle" both on here and on The Dark Side, they are still on about it now!! I think we need to dispell all this bull for the good of the new members coming on board who do not know any of us.

Quite simply the clique does not exist here. what does exist is alot of friendships forged by making the effort to attend meets/trackdays and general pi$$ ups that are organized by various folks now on here and formerly on the other side.

If there are any new guys who do feel intimidated by the apparent familiarity between the various combatants on here, dont be. just get yerselves to one of the many events and shake hands with a few of us....we wont bite...well, apart from Stew430 that is ;) Dont forget, everyone is a stranger at some point, its down to the individual to change that!!!! :D:D:D

P.s. did'nt know where to post this mods, move it if you think it will be better elsewhere. Ta!

Personally I have never thought that there was a clique IMHO it was just an excuse to try and discipline the UK section.:thumbsdow

On the old site (:wink3:) I did recieve a few PMs saying that it was cliquey, but what can anyone do about it. If new users are shy then it will appear cliquey, but that'll never change until they decide to get their feet wet.

Hazy and Hudson (to name but a few) had to make their first post, and they were not turned away by what appeared to be a clique, they just got straight on with getting up our noses. Result? Mates!

If we try and keep our off topic bollox and our love of the hijack in the Lounge section, then new users can intoduce themselves, read a few Ferrari discussions, find out about meets, go to a meet, meet someone, then they are up to speed and sharing their life on this site before you can say pneumonoutlramicroscopicsilicovolcanaconiosis..... .

Nice post Adam, very well said.

Perception of others is a very strange thing, I can remember a time on the Texan ***** site when I was accused of being in the clique, simply because I enjoyed a bit of banter with stevef, stevep. lee and Tea Are - actually led to my posting less for a while, as I found it quite unsettling that I should be seen that way.

Like minded people enjoy each other's company - hence the reason we are all here :):):) - as for the others I think they should stay where they are and enjoy the :tumblewee

Actually i thought it was clickey when i started, the main culprits at the time being tea ****, steve p and leep - and i remember having a bitch at lee and stevep AND GOT SOME CRAP BACK FROM LEE :grin: about the number of posts id made and that my opinion was less valued than someone whod made 10887676 posts like stevef or tony h. And it was my choice could have got the hump and never posted again or stuck at it and made some of the best friends ive ever had. hazey is right tho - You guys have to come and meet us all.

FWIW I think thats bang out of order. For someone to make the effort and join in and then get slated becasue of their post count. Fair play to stick with it, I would have thought twice. Whilst I appreciate there are some top people on here there inveitably witll be some *****.

100% agree with that! I I had my way, we would not have post counts; now how would that level the playing field?

Six months ago, I did'nt know anyone.

Since then I've made countless new friends, annoyed a few people (especially chaa :laugh: ), been to a few meets and even managed to arrange a small meet in London as well.

But most of all I've had great fun with the most friendly guys i've ever come across.






Even if some of them do drive F355's and rev their engines in public!!!

When i first was on the dark side there was also a click then. But it involved another bunch of people including that wozza, and that dude who Graham banned for having a false id, was it steve***. I even mentioned it at the time, but then over time i realised that the more you post the more you get to know people and if you meet people this makes the banter even more personal.
I will bet ya anything ya like that there will be another click of the UK section again very very soon. It cant be stoped as i say its the nature of ANY forum beast.

We'd presumably have to disable the names you get at the various post count levels as well, otherwise you've gained nothing by turning 'em off.

I had a large post count on fchat as i am single live on my own and have no friends and never go out and socialise so you see there is a reason for this [not a post whore] like stigg said

Everybody would retain their current post count, although it just wouldn't be displayed anywhere. So we'd have to allocate everybody a uniform title and do away with the incremental system.

One option we have is to set certain forums so that posts made there do not contribute towards a user's post count e.g. The Lounge. That's one of the standard settings in vBulletin

Then everybody would start hammering the Ferrari Talk forum with loads of sensible Ferrari related topics to get their post count up. That wouldn't be so bad :D

There's loads of options. As long as vBulletin can support it, or I can write the software to change it, we can pretty much have it as we please

Steve, I have heard all the above to be true:laugh: I wans't implying anyone was a post whore. It takes a while to "get to know" chracters on here given you are reading rather than talking.

If I am being honest when I first went on to the other side I though a couple of people were intolerable, yourself included steve. But because I have now been posting / reading for a while I understand your humor and find it highly amusing.

I do reckon post counts should be removed, it would encourange more people to join in without being concious of the fact that everyone thinks their new / opinion counts for nothing.

Graham, do you really think post counts act as that much of a motivaing factor to keep us posting?

Jules
15-11-2005, 11:25 AM
Turn off the post count, but keep the descriptions - I think they're hilarious:thumbsup:

The banter can only really begin once you've put names to faces and had some beers. You get a far better understanding of someones sense of humour once you've met them, so its important that we try to encourage the new guys to keep posting until they've attended some meets and realise we'll all a bunch of tw.ts:laugh: :wink3:

Not in that sense as people will always post if they have something to say

However I do think they can encourage people to post for no reason other than to get their post count as high as possible. This brings up the old quality vs quantity argument.

Forgive the analysis and be assured I'm not trying to say that what is here now is in any way "wrong" or inappropriate, but;

For what it's worth I do think there is the sense of a clique here, especially if you look at it from a new poster's perspective. I don't consider myself to be part of it (could be wrong though :wink3: ) although I do know a fair number of people pretty well. The problem is not that there is banter between users who are familiar with each other; it is that there are several long standing jokes which new people will never quite 'get'.

Examples;
Pink spider
F355's are gay / 348's are for real men
The Dark Side
The brekky pic

Since the bulk of the site is off topic (no idea on the proportions so that is a guess really) this is the sort of thing that gets the most exposure if you look at 'new posts' display. It might result from people posting when they have nothing much new to say, and hence they perpetuate the ongoing jokes - don't know really.

It is hard to see what is wrong with that when you're an established member, and I'm not saying it should stop, but I can see the new person's point of view here. We appear very insular.

Even when behind the keyboard, some people can still be a bit reserved and unwilling to post for fear of being flamed or whatever. I think the 'introduce yourself' thread goes a long way towards welcoming people, but it already needs a clean-up due to off-topicness :wink3:

Some new posters make the "mistake" of posting an opinion straight away. This I think is probably what resulted in UFO on the other site being labelled a troll. I feel like there are loads of new members out there who just need to be told how to get involved without getting burnt or feeling sidelined, but I'm not sure how to get the message across.

Ferrarispider's (Chaa) 355 is Rosso barchetta, that when phothgraphed looks pink.

F355's are gay / 348's are for real men
This started off with me (348 owner) v Chaa. It's just a bit of fun that a lot of people joined in with. Resulting in a poll that the 348 won :D

The Dark Side
I think that would be Fchat.

Posting can be a bit intimadating if you are new, however I don't care what people (even they do not know me) think of me, cos I am a to$$3r in real life :thumbsup:

The other problem I have is that me old Moondial only gets about 2 feet from the garage and stops. I am thinking about swapping the running gear out of my reliable Honda Accord, so I can at least turn up at meets in what looks vaguely like a Ferrari.

It would also mean my Accord would sound fantastic and I would never get to work :tongue3: :tongue3: :tongue3:

Unfortuantely its just human nature Rick, this is almost an extension of being down the pub, think about your own personal / work life and the ongoing jokes you share in that. Exactly the same thing is going to happen on any internet forum once people get to know each other and start having a laugh.

As Chaa has said, give it time and a new clique will form over on the other site where people who didn't post a lot now start to do so, get to know each other, share some humour, and off it goes again - ongoing jokes etc. Just a fact of life you can't get away from!

This was taken at Wooley edge services on the way to SeeRed in 2004 and was taken to use as ammunition in the long running "who's the slimmest" battle, between SteveF and TonyH. Steve was demonstrating that he was a true healthy eater because he does not have those nasty protein rich eggs.

The most cliquey bunch must ipso facto be the ones who post the most therefore being more familiar with each other, ie there are people who are on here all day and all night.

Mmmm......it took me a while to be "accepted", i distinctly remember someone forcefully pointing out that i was "The New Boy" and feeling a little intimidated. I wonder who that could have been Si????

here are alot of interesting points on here, but the facts are that because of the high amount of meets etc we get to know each other fairly well so for someone new it must look a bit clicky. All I can say is I have yet to meet an absolute ***** hole yet (not met up with Stevef yet ;)) ALL of the guys are friendly and approachable, so for new people, get out and meet us if at all possible.

And for all you scruffy lot make sure we are friendly and helpful to new people because like it or not the future of this site will depend on us attracting newbies and making them feel at home.

I just think that some users can turn out different depending upon how we react to their first posts. If you label someone a troll they quite possibly feel it necessary to live up to their name, regardless of their initial intentions.

He's putting the effort in over there now, because he's had a stern offline warning from the new moderator, who obviously can control things over there a lot better than those other rubbish ex-moderators :wink3::wink3:

I found f-chat an odd place at first, with steve this and that, leep, t-****, etc. etc. and had no idea what the ***** they were on about, and doubted I ever would..... so, no change there then :grin:

I barged my way in after a while, as I was (and am) determined to get the most out of the whole Ferrari owning experience, so I met up at Boxhill, did the Brighton Marina drive, National Concours, Jas Tunnel Experience and the Airfield Day and like Hazy said, found no real arzewholes among others on these events.

Last Sunday some met at Boxhill again, had a good natter, top bacon and a little jaunt after. Fantastic. (though this cannot be compared with Adam and Al's de-flowering expedition of the un-susspecting lasses of Leeds)....!

I make a point of trying to speak to as many people as possible at these do's, and tell them my name and the "rmdferrari" thing aswell so they can remember who the anoying shandy-drinker was, and avoid me in future. Think it helps to put an (attractive) :thumbsup: face to a name.

he's had a stern offline warning from the new moderator, who obviously can control things over there a lot better than those other rubbish ex-moderators :wink3::wink3:

See, it's remarkably easy this moderating lark... when there's only one person there that needs moderating :D

Posting can be a bit intimadating if you are new, however I don't care what people (even they do not know me) think of me, cos I am a to$$3r in real life :thumbsup:

The other problem I have is that me old Moondial only gets about 2 feet from the garage and stops. I am thinking about swapping the running gear out of my reliable Honda Accord, so I can at least turn up at meets in what looks vaguely like a Ferrari.

It would also mean my Accord would sound fantastic and I would never get to work :tongue3: :tongue3: :tongue3:
Hey Malc, save the money for my cup of tea mate, and put it towards a nice reliable MR2 ferrari kit car off ebay:laugh: :laugh:

Your kidding Andy. An MR2 kit looks more like a Ferrari than my Moondial :laugh:
