Welcome to #GTKY. This week, we change gears. You’re probably on several discussion forums. Most of us are. Well, we’d like to introduce you to a new community – ours. You know most forums focus on specific makes, models, or locations? Ours is different. If you’re into anything with a driver’s seat, anywhere in the world, you’re part of this community.
It’s called Gearheads United and it’s unlike anything else we’ve found on the web. We created this site because we wanted a place where we could talk rally with rallyists around the world, where we could see what Russian rock crawlers were up to, where we could compare quarter-mile ETs between cars and countries, where there would always be something new to see.
We also wanted to create a place where it would be easy for those who most care about the community to have the power to keep it performing its best. No small teams of barely-there moderators who never have time or inclination to moderate. If you’ve been around a while, prove more helpful than not, and care about the community, you get mod powers – up to and including admin level.
Ultimately, we think Gearheads United will be like the United Nations of Gearheads. It will be the place where new ideas break and spread around the gearhead world. It will be a place where we can all represent our platforms, pursuits, and hometowns with pride, bringing the good stuff back to our friends.
The question today is actually posted in a thread on the board here. Will you join us and speak your mind?
