GREETINGS AND WELCOME TO OUR NEW SITE! - WebMaster - 30-09-2014 10:30 PM
Greetings to all BMWFanatics and welcome to the new environment for our forum as well as the additional sister forums.
Thank you for your patience during a very long downtime maintenance period.
TheFanatics.co.za portal site was necessitated by the need for an all encompassing "portal" for motoring enthusiasts. Forums are by nature restricted by their off the shelf templates and BmwFanatics was no exception. However, we have over the years stretched the MyBB platform and developed and created ideas and plug-ins that are not available elsewhere.
We developed the new portal as a line of sight to a broader online community but also to break out of the restrictions of the MyBB software.
As Murphys law dictates we were not able to migrate BmwFanatics forum to our new server today which is already hosting our network of forums - We hope to do this in the next few weeks so that the BmwFanatics forum can also enjoy the faster speed and greater hosting previledges.
Enjoy our new beautiful home for easy reference and as a single stop of the best that South African motoring and the continent have to offer. It is also the beginning of creating a community of enthusiasts that cuts across brands, borders, loyalties and places the focus on our love and passion for cars.
The potential for advertisers, sponsors, marketers as well as the motoring industry to reach a broad audience through one portal has just been made so much easier.
We invite you to explore the new site and the various forums and hope that you will find something of value. As with all online communities; growth takes time but creating a home and value for members take even more time. Expect to see a few more changes and additions in the next few months.
If you feel you can make a contribution to the develoment of our new strategy, feel free to drop us a mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org
