Time to grow the community

  • @jono Hi Jono, You are doing a great job and thanks very much from us all for hosting this site. There are a few of us newbies that use it quite a bit, like Rax, Mick and myself. It would help if you removed the posting time limit on newbies so we could use it more. But keep up the good work and join us at a show soon if you can. Cheers, Steve

    @steveg Thanks for your support, I hope you guys get loads out of the site and keep on posting :)
    I have dropped the posting limits down to 60 seconds, this should hopefully make posting better for you, the restriction is to stop spam, so I will see how it goes and adjust it further if it looks ok.

    My car is currently off the road, pending some serious turbo related mods, but I would love to bring it to a show when its done! Keep posting events you guys are attending and hopefully we can get a full stand at some point! Japfest as a proper collection of MX-3's would be great at some point!

    If you guy's have any suggestions for improvements to the site, please let me know and I will consider them.



  • Hi Jono, I echo Steve's comment re the site. However since you invited comment I do have an issue with the page display on my pc. The title banner masks the top half of the Home/Categories/News etc which makes it look like the green border is "crossing out" the headings. Not a major problem, certainly less important than sorting your car, but it is a mild irritation in that something isn't right and as an engineer that bugs me!! Also availability of smilies would be handy!! Cheers

    @mickthemaverick any chance you can send me a screenshot? It appears fine on my pc, could be a browser specific thing, what one do you use?

  • I'm not sure how to get a screenshot, I have just noticed that the display is fine before I login and then once logged in I cannot scroll up enough to bring the headings fully into view. It appears that logging in causes an extra blank line which pushes the green line down over the titles. I am using duckduckgo.

  • here are the logged out and logged in screens:

    @mickthemaverick Thanks for the images mate, I can see part of the problem, you have your browser zoomed in to 125%, this is essentially causing the title banner to wrap onto another line, you get more icons etc when logging in which is why its different. Try to reduce this to 100% and see if that makes any difference?

    The site is designed to display best at 100% normal zoom. It's not trivial to make it more compatible with zoom so it's unlikely I will be able to change any of that just yet.



  • Great stuff, Thanks Jono, sorted with a few clicks. All good now and the posting is much better too as I type this. Consider me a satisfied customer. Now you can get that car going and come and meet us!!

  • @jono Hey buddy how's things. Well done for keeping the forum alive, I was expecting all our posts had disappeared for good.

  • I'm still around and waiting for the end of our lockdown. Still got the MX3 and still using it weekly. Put some new bespoke mats in and the guy wasn't allowed to embroider them MX3 for copyright reasons so he did MiX3 for me which is pretty cool in my car !!

  • @mickthemaverick good stuff, where are you located buddy?

  • Hello, I'm in Hertford, and you?

  • @mickthemaverick Oxfordshire so not far. Give me a shout if you need any mx3 bits, I have a slight collection 🙄

  • OK great, mine is only a 1.6 auto but in good nick, hopefully see you at a show somewhere when we are freed!!

    Hi guys, I'm still about.

    These forums have become so very quiet, but I guess facebook and the like are partly to blame for that.

    For now I will be keeping the forum going, until there are simply no more posts.

    It would be interesting to see how many of the cars are still out there and on this forum.

    I'm just starting the turbo build on mine, which will probably be the last project I do on it.


  • Good to hear from you Jono. Sadly the current situation is preventing any activity on the motoring front but as a committed non-facebook user I'll be monitoring this forum and posting when there is something to say!!

  • @jono hello buddy, long time no speak. I tried to take over the UK Facebook group but the American that controls it wouldn't make me an admin so I ditched it and now have completely deleted Facebook.
    I'll keep dropping in here with some project pics and updates to keep things active and I want to try and get a club meet organised in the future as the last one was in 2011 and I frigin missed it!
