I’m happy to say that my main community focus for the past year; Camaro Forums is almost to 1,000 members. It’s taken me a bit less than 2 years to get this far on this forum.Â That may seem like a long time to some, and short to others.
I am happy to be where I am currently with F-Body Online (FBO).Â While many others dwarf FBO, we’ve managed to carve out a spot in the camaro and firebird world with nothing but hard work.Â I’ve not paid a single dollar in advertising, adwords, or anything of that sort for this forum.Â I’m not boasting about that because if I did have the cash to throw at it, I probably would have given in and done it but it didn’t work out that way.
Because of the age of the forum and its size, it’s become a very tight-knit community with very little drama (that’s VERY rare on an automotive forum especially) and one of my biggest concerns is to make sure that everyone feels comfortable posting and asking questions.Â Think about it- If you’re running a community based on users posting and interacting with others, being intimidated isn’t going to help you at all.Â I’ve received dozens of messages and emails from users just letting me know that we’re one of the most helpful and respectful communities they’ve been a part of and that lets me know that what I’m working for is worth it.
I’ve got some very big plans in store for FBO in the very near future.Â One of which I’ll give a little hint to here right now.
