    Hey viper,

    I was wondering if you could make an Advanced topic forum,

    For the stuff guys would like to discuss but are afraid Newbs might misunderstand the info?

    That would be awesome

    maj, I agree, but having posted over 500 or 1000 posts does not make one an expert... :)

    I think this is a difficult one, as we dont want nuubs to feel insignificant, however, that said, some contents might be misunderstood by many nuubs, and they may cause havoc for themselves...

    Dunno how one would approach this...:whistling:

    Correct,post count isnt an indication of the knowledge you have.
    maybe start the thread and give whatever users access to it ,if they want to be part of it.
    iknw many car forums have a special section,wher certain ppl only have that access

    IMO there is a need for some sub forums ..... in filtration for example there is definately room for a low nutrient system forum .... whether or not they are called advanced topic forums i dont really care ......

    I dont think that you can restrict access. And as Jaco says, post count does not reflect knowledge

    Just to have a forum that n00bs can clearly note that these are Advanced topics and methods and should not just be put into practice without some serious research. (one example I can think of is vodka method - I dont think n00bs understand the dangers associated with it)

    Plus its a great place to have some nice debates on various topics :lol:
