    Hi all,

    I've noticed we have a few rover p4 owners joining recently and i'm wondering whether we should create p4/5/3/SD1 sections? I know there are other forums for most of these cars, but if the people are here should we cater?

    All opinions welcome :)

    Bear in mind that I am not the one tasked with the work involved and do appreciate all the effort that goes into the forum I would say yes.
    Having more folks on board can surely be a good thing.
    Forums seem to be being sidelined by the likes of facebook etc ( which I can neither understand or nor operate ) so any influx of new blood must be welcomed with open arms - I would have thought ?

    It is called the Classic Rover Forum and I guess every Rover ever made is now a classic.

    Well apart from the brown ones that some people put comedy wheelarches on and paint blue :oops:

    I'd definitely vote for a P4 section. The P4 Guild seems to be having a bit of a crisis at the moment with the forum almost dead and most discussions taking place on Facebook (in a group that doesn't require membership of the Guild). While FB is fine for short term discussions the lack of decent archiving and searching makes it useless for technical reference - where this forum really shines.

    Hi, Yes I agree. Both the P4 and P5 forums are quiet, if it brings more traffic onto here it makes it a 'one stop shop' for all things Rover.

    I agree. I like the social aspect of FB but it usually means the same questions are asked again and again. I always try to steer people to threads here.

    As a great admirer of the P4 and P5 (especially 100 and B coupé respectively) I should be delighted with the proposal. I do not use Facebook so the additional content would enhance my enjoyment of the Forum.

    I always thought this forum covered the P4, 5 and 6 anyway, it's name would indicate that. The only trouble with dividing it up is whether you also divide up the various sections like electrical, etc. It could get very complicated!

    Perhaps a separate section for general chat would be the way forward, in which case you'd have to have a P6 section as well!! ;)

    Wholly endorse the suggestion of including a separate section for P4 P5, would make it easier searching threads if nothing else. As has been said the forum name suggests it all.

    Done - I've linked the v8 engine section from p5 to the p6 ones as it is mostly the same.

    As we havent separaeted the BW35 and 65 boxes in the p6 sections i havent linked them.

    I will create a higher level p3/prewar and an SD1 section too. I wont create all the subsections just yet though. Happy for people to link to other forums too... It's all about what works for you guys :)

    I think we need a prize for the first proper post in each section?

    I've added The prefix Rover P4,P5 or P6 to the similar sections to try and help with possible cros contamination - let's see how that goes :)
