Sorry guys, I ran a script that accidentally reverted the database to yesterday's backup. Anything that you did in the past day is essentially gone. First time since launching a year and a half ago that something like this has happened, so I'd say I was overdue. My bad. Hopefully it didn't totally mess you up.

I've been getting tons of feedback emails and lots of people have been posting up ideas / requests in the feedback forum lately. I must say even though it's tons of work added to the queue, it's great to know so many people are hoping for more out of MySubie.
I just returned home from a long trip (WBM Event Director is one of my *other* jobs) and am ready to start busting out some of those new / overdue features (big fat marketplace!) along with the many requests that have been received.
I really appreciate the patience, too. Even if I haven't replied yet, do know that I've taken note and take each thought seriously. MySubie is growing way faster than I ever expected, but hey, it's good problem to have :)

And want to take credit for your referral?
That's right - it dynamically generates a high res PNG with your screenname on it (if you're logged in). Save the file to your computer and pop it into a doc however you see fit (most likely two big ones on a page or shrink them down as small as business card sized).
And like everything, let me know if it's broken or if your screenname doesn't fit on it right!

The MySubie Mafia could use a few more members.
What is the MySubie Mafia? It's a tight knit bunch of Subaru enthusiasts excited about and dedicated to growing a new and very unique community: MySubie.com. We go to events, flyer every Subaru in sight, spread the words through all means possible, and we're all over the country. You've probably noticed we're also some of the most active and enthusiastic members on the site.
We won't bribe you to be part of the member, but there may be rewards here and there. If anything, it's a good excuse to be part of something new and exciting, a great way to make new friends, and an excuse to hit events as often as possible. You'll have an allegiance with the MySubie community, and you can take all the credit you want for helping it be the fastest growing Subaru enthusiast site on the internet.
Sound interesting? If you're an active member on MySubie, send a message to bigbobchamp and tell him how much you'd like to be a part. Only a couple people get let in a week, so be patient!

With some help from fellow enthusiasts, I've spent the last month completely reworking the site to be more useful and make more sense. Almost everything on the site has been changed, so I encourage you to look at every page and click on every link as though it was your first visit ever. I can't possibly explain to you everything that was done, so here are the highlights:
-Every person, business, classified listing, club, event, etc. is now assigned to a region (some things can be national).
-The site structure was reorganized to browse according to topic with helpful tools inside. It used to be the other way around.
-The forum is not gone, it was just split up to where discussion was relevant. All subforums still exist, and new ones were added.
-Driver Blogs are gone for now. Sad I know, but threads can serve a similar purpose and will get you much more responses.
To find the rest of the updates and new features, just browse the site! If the overhaul works like planned, it won't be too hard to figure out. If you have questions or feedback, please please please use the blue tab on the left and let me know. This is your site, demand perfection!

Some big changes have been happening that you may have missed.
New features have been coming out like mad, so here are some you'll be most interested in:
-Club Discussion: clubs now get their own individual private forums!
-Maintenance Schedules + Logs: a place that isn't monitored by a dealer for you to keep track of your maintenance, plus reminders on what is coming up / past, and some products to help on the way....
-Q+A section: designed to remove off topic banter, this is for you when you want answers and less noise
-Message all club / event members (if club or event owner/admin): that's right, you can send a message directly to everyone to keep members up to date
We have vendors and vendor listings!
Turn in Concepts
Go here for Vendor Listings
I'd like to present MySubie's latest shirt sporting the new MySubie logo:
You can of course purchase in the MySubie store.
Don't forget to use that little blue feedback tab on the left when you've got something to say!

...since you've been updated. So, here's a run down of what is going on in MySubie land:
We just released a new t-shirt that is available for order at the MySubie Store.
This one is for the rally enthusiasts:
We're currently working very, very hard on providing a section devoting to providing enthusiasts such as yourself with some valuable resources. It'll be released bit by bit over the next few months. Here's a sneak preview of what is in the works (blurs intentional):
Lastly, the site is still growing wicked and/or hella fast! We're about to break 2800 members having just beta launched 5 months ago!
Look at how packed the map got:

Keep your Subie fans n friends up to date with your car oriented happenings, thoughts, etc. It's kind of like facebook status updates, but directed towards the Subaru community and not so much your work / college buddies.
On the dashboard under the favs tab, just cilck "Share Something".
You can add a picture to whatever you feel like sharing, link your car to it, an event/club, or just any old link to something interesting.
It's a great opportunity to share some of the little details you might not make a whole new thread about. Just try to keep it Subaru / community oriented!
You can also leave comments on the things people share.
