Trailers sub heading

Just an idea,
we currently have headings: Ribs and ribbing, and engines, I think it would be a good idea to have a seperate section titled trailers. After all the trailer is one of the most expensive bits and in the majority of cases thats where the RIB spends most of its time (unfortunatly!).

What does everyone else think!

It's one to consider. There has certainly been a fair volume of talk about trailers, but I'm not sure that it is in the same league as engines or electronics though.

Having seen a large increase in threads that have needed moving out of the "RIBS and ribbing" section to the relevant section I'm a bit wary of fragmenting things to much more for now.

So that's definitely a maybe, but I'll need convincing!

RIBase
Headings

John,

I agree that too many headings can make it difficult to find your way around.

One site I visit quite often - the Westfield Sports car Club Boardroom has just 10 sections:

Chat
Website suggestion

Newbies - simple questions from beginners
Events
Techie Talk - technical discussion of a more complex nature than newbies
Racing

Cars for sale
Parts for sale
Cars wanted
Parts wanted

Most of the questions asked on Ribnet would probably go into Newbies or Techie talk

Just my 2p ker-plink

I've just noticed that the comment for RIBs & ribbing section still has 'engines' and 'electronics' listed
