Agreed, definitely would like to hear your guys thoughts and if there's anything you'd like to see or don't like.

Site is awesome. Easy to read, stay up to date on news, and the articles are great. Thanks to everyone involved,@Jared Balfour @redriderbob @Mike V. @Ryan @UN4GTBL and anyone else who has contributed that I might have missed.

Love the forum and the chance to chit chat with other Mopar enthusiasts.

I have noticed nothing negative or bad.

Great job

Well the site has been active for less than a month. Should be a little longer and things will start to pick up. We have a lot of in the works. Jared is doing reviews on the latest FCA US product thanks to @BobbiBigWheels his dealership. I am working on spy shots and latest news, Mike V has been slammed at work but is managing to produce some really good stuff, @Ryan wrote a really awesome article about his Compass, @UN4GTBL wrote an awesome review on his Trailhawk, so we are trying to make this a community in which if you guys have an idea for an article or would like to contribute, run it by us. The whole point of MoparInsiders is to engage the Mopar community. But thanks @devildodge for your help with the forums and the advice.

If you guys have ideas for stories or what we should do or aren't doing... let us know.

I'm planning to write a lot of articles over various topics in the future but could use some ideas on what everyone would like to see.

I might have read wrong but I gave no advice,but I see in my post "stay up to date on news"

That wasn't meant as advice...that was meant as I come here to stay up on news.

As in you are doing a fine job staying ahead on news...sorry if that was confusing or if I just confused myself even more I appologize

Everything I can think of you guys have already started, the review of vehicles owned is a great idea... @Jared B and @BobbiBigWheels have made a great team for their reviews @redriderbob articles and photography is amazing. @Mike V. Has Arrived With His Articles.
The coverage of stuff right from FCA is great.
I will gladly let you guys know when an idea pops in my head that you guys haven't already implemented.

And pics, lots of pics. Enjoy reading an article versus watching a video, but videos are great too.

Will there be some sort of membership fee in the future to help with the site ? A big thank you to all involved for getting this site going, great job by very well informed MOPAR enthusiasts.
MOPAR Always!

No fee per say but I have been considering something like a $20 a year subscription which would remove ads, allow larger attachment sizes etc although it is still just a thought at this point. Everything would remain as it is for people that wouldn't want to go that route.

You’d have at least one buyer. I hate ads.

I appreciate that, and fair enough. I'm not a huge fan of ads either which is why I try to keep them pretty light. But at the end of the day something has to pay for all this, a lot goes into creating and maintaining a website and almost none of it is cheap/free lol.

Great new website, really like the tone.
For moans and groans there are many places on the web.
It will pay to be different.

Home page: for me, i can do without the big video playing in the background.

Home page: the section "Recently updated posts". How does it work? i see no difference. Maybe use a different font color for the update.

Search: i liked the "Last Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Rolls Off The Assembly Line" and did a search to see what happened.

https://www.google.com/search?q=Dod...uW0K_bAhUFuBQKHafwBRYQpwUIHw&biw=1831&bih=983

"MoparInsiders" not yet there on the general search.

https://www.google.com/search?biw=1......0...1c.1.64.psy-ab..0.0.0....0.fVmPAcB1baQ

"5th" shows up on the specific search and is on page one. Great.

Just a bit of fine tuning should do the trick.

I appreciate the input. As for the search results, it takes awhile to get ranked with Google, since this is a relatively new site we aren't quite there yet but should be soon. I will look into your other suggestions. The recently updated posts will show the posts that are recently edited, this would become beneficial if say in the future we added photos etc to an old article, then that would become one of the recently edited posts causing it to still show up on the front page even it it is actually a few pages back.

Maybe we should do a poll to see who likes the background video on the homepage or not... maybe if people don't we can get a dark carbon fiber background instead.

Jared is right though, it took about 6 solid month before 5thGenRams was search near the top of Google searches.

I only view from my cellphone, and I am very pleased with the site.
It is always cool to see the 2 sites listed as sources though for other peoples stuff.

You guys are doing a fine job. I understand the community is small yet, but it is a refreshing take on the stuff I am most interested in and everyone seems to be enjoying and getting along.

I think a video would be fine if you could get a high quality one. I would much prefer high quality picture over a low quality video

I didn't even notice the video until just now. It seems kind of unnecessary and a potential cause of slower response time.

Its 1080p but gets degraded due to being used as a background video as @redriderbob said. If people don't like it I'm totally cool with switching it out with a carbon fibre background or something similar.
