Wanted to create a new topic series about things around Forever Pontiac which you may not be aware or just tips in posting that can save you some time. I'll be adding to this topic every now and again, especially as trends show around the community so be sure to check back! Please feel free to ask any questions in here on how to do things or what's available in Forever Pontiac. Please also do not forget about our Suggestions, Feedback and Bug report forum to provide any of those items to us which we love to hear!

These will be bullet points, as I feel that is easiest to read these non-organized items but if you guys have any better suggestions on breaking up these points, please feel free to speak up:

  • Forever Pontiac started out in 2009 as only a forum based website. In the time we've been around, we've added many different applications to make more of a "community" than only being a forum software. We have:
    • Of course, the Forums which is at our index or "homepage": https://foreverpontiac.com/
    • The Gallery application, it is a great way to share photos in the various categories we have setup plus comment, add reactions, etc...: https://foreverpontiac.com/gallery
    • The Downloads application, we use this mainly as a repository for various Owner's Manuals and some Forever Pontiac materials (such as our club cards to pass out in person). If you have any Owner's Manuals or digital-based items that could be of use, please let us know and we can setup a category for you: https://foreverpontiac.com/files/
    • The Garage application, this is  for you to showcase your Pontiac (and other cars) and view other's vehicles plus comment/discuss/etc... This automatically will allow you to enter our Pontiac This OR That competition plus it will show your vehicles in your profile and under your name in Forums. That is found at: https://foreverpontiac.com/garage/
    • Clubs part of our community is currently setup for all our local/region specific discussion but we are always looking to evolve this part of this website. Clubs allows you to set up sub-areas of our community that have their own Forums, Gallery, Downloads, Calendar and Classifieds area. It's pretty neat, feel free to create your own Club (we do review these before allowing them publicly :) ) and join others: https://foreverpontiac.com/clubs/
    • The Classifieds application is for our users to list items for sale and other users can directly purchase on the site or in-person (please read all applicable rules/disclaimers). It is free to list! Go to: https://foreverpontiac.com/classifieds/
    • Our Store application is where you can find genuine Forever Pontiac merchandise, such as our Calendars, shirts, etc... It is also where your can purchase our Forever Pontiac Enhanced Membership which is a subscription that gives you no ads, more upload space, more private messaging space, and more! Can find that at: https://foreverpontiac.com/store/
    • Calendar application, allows you to create events, have people RSVP to those events and more! Check it out at: https://foreverpontiac.com/calendar/
  • It is worth noting that our navigation at the top of every page is setup to provide navigation to these items in their relevant areas. You'll want to hover over each point in the navigation (at the top of every page) to reveal sub-items. If you're on a mobile device, you'll want to tap each item to see the sub-items;
    • Discuss/Share
      • This navigation item houses our Fourms and Gallery application plus Activity Feeds (these show you activity throughout FP, I'll touch more on these later), Leadboards (shows our top members through given periods based on different factors), and Guidelines.
    • Local Discussion/Events
      • Houses Clubs and the Calendar application as the sub-navigation
    • Learn/Manuals
      • Downloads application and some links to our Q/A and How-To forum here.
    • Rest of our navigation are specific applications so not as particularly confusing ;) 

That seems like a lot for the very first post in this topic so I will let you all digest and ask some questions :) 

Hope you read and enjoy!

10 years this year eh.  Hard to believe it.  Time flies.

Right? Crazy to think about.

Time to learn about Activity Streams! Not the sexiest feature but certainly useful to see what is happening throughout Forever Pontiac. See the video for more:

Did you know once you get 10+ posts you can change your Display Name once a year?

Just need to go to Account Settings -> Display Name as seen in the screenshot below. (In Account Settings, you can change a various number of things as you can see in the screenshot as well such as Email, Password, Signature, etc...)
