    forgot to mention... the way I found the group years ago was I had posted on https://www.reddit.com/r/ColoradoOffroad/ asking about non-Jeep only groups after being frustrated by searching myself and only ever finding Jeep Only or a few Toyota only type of groups in Colorado. Someone pointed me in the direction of this website and the rest is history. If I was a Jeep owner I probably wouldn't have made it that far because I would have just found one of the other groups. As someone who has never had a FB account the whole FB groups thing would have never worked for me, I know a lot of people on reddit are anti-FB too so it could be a good place to try and recruit if you were looking for new members who aren't very into FB groups.


    Another thing you could do if they allow it is try to get traction by having a group at https://irate4x4.com/categories/groups.313939/ pirate4x4 is mostly garbage now, this website apparently replaced it but I don't see much CO representation. It's possible Pirate4x4 still gets more new traffic and you could try having something there as well if they allow it https://www.pirate4x4.com/forums/usa-southwest.95/

    "Thanks for the comments Bob. We'd love it if you wished to pick up the ball for the improvements you see that can be made. I'm interested in a review / change to what an interested person would see when they first visit the site through the initial email messages and logged in experience. I can provide content and make the changes where needed.

    As for contacting new members that don't get involved - yes, I plan to do that. I could see it being tied in with a "new member / ice breaker" run."

    Sure, I can take a stab at it. Iím a little busy with helping some people in Ukraine right now, so probably in a week or two if thatís ok.

    I don't have a desktop, I am 100% mobile. The site is very difficult to navigate, even with a new "big" phone. The buttons to switch pages are about 0.5mm square. If I enlarge the screen to be able to hit the button I want, it makes the text unreadable. I don't know anything about programming or what it would take, but even just a "view on mobile" button that simplifies everything, taking away a lot of the "artsy" stuff would be helpful.

    Thx for the feedback. I've not looked into it. Likely it would be a wholesale upgrade to a new version of vBulletin. I believe tapatalk was used way back (before it was cancelled / before my time).

    I did a quick search - different themes is one option.

    The forum does have a "styles" setting. The mobile style was turned off - I do recall an issue with it many years back (causing problems). I just turned it on. We'll see if things break for folks (or if life is better). Let me know!

    Settings > General Settings > Forum Skin (bottom of page) > Default Mobile Style (if the site does not auto-detect when visiting via mobile device) > Save changes

    It looks like a mobile upgrade is available https://www.vbulletin.com/en/mobile

    Thx. Yes. I could see the site upgrading from this v4 version to current - checking that our add-ins would continue to work.

    It seems vB Cloud is unavailable for us as we use third party add-ins for basic functions (RSVP is the big one, Yellow-Box of runs, Back to top button, PayPal donate, garage pictures). I'll check with our host for what they offer with current VB and what the upgrade process would be (how smoothly things will upgrade).

    I saw the upgrade is 359.00, I'd be glad to pitch in towards that if you decide to go that route. Thanks for doing this, Jim!

    Count me in for a part of the cost too.

    Thanks folks. Yes, any financial issue is presented to the group for the group to tend it (or even to decide if the choice should be taken).

    Even though I found FR 4x4 with a search of the web. I feel that most of our active new members have been new acquaintances that we meet and share our group with.
    How many times have we been out wheeling and came across someone who was solo and tagged along for the day? And then became a member.

    I don't like using my phone for anything ecept communicating with others. I use my tablet for everything on the internet. So the way this site is set-up things run perfectly for me. But I do understand others use thier phone for everything and improvements for them might help.

    I hope to see a lot of our members on the anniversary run. Unless something interferes I'm planning on it! CHEERS!
