+1. Thanks highroller. Please put your location below your Avatar.

If you already own a Miata, post pics or ban!

We'll forgive you about the pics just because at some time in your life you lived in the Caribbean

About placing your location below your Avatar; go to "User CP" and there you'll see a question about your location.

Welcome to the forum. Let us know if there's anything we can help you with

Welcome, but posting like that to get your count up makes you look like a douche and will get you banned.... and still no pics

well this is the only way i can get my post in so i can actual buy things for my car.......if i get banned for trying to fix my car up by sourcing parts then what good is a miata forum?
i am on rx7club forum and we can buy from any one , PM them...post threads on the very first day.....why do we have to be so strick on the miata forums?
any way as soon as I can get the parts I want to get my car all done I promise to put a picture or two.........but thats when I think the car looks good enough to actuall post some pics...if thats ok with everyone?

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say.....no, no that's probably NOT going to be ok with anyone here, let alone everyone, oh well, you wouldn't/won't be the first guy to get the ban stick before they get their 15th post in..

well i am not tring to get banned, but at the same time, i think your response shows the lack of tolerance for different people. Not everyone wants to make friends and have a good ole chat....some people only have the little chance between work and breaks to surf and search parts etc.
maybe the mods here can soften up and realize that a forum is a wonderful tool for many to sell and buy as well as exchange ideas........and sometimes you will have many different kinds of people that have many different needs, but inspite of that we have ONE thing in common..................we love a MAZDA MIATA!!!

any way I will do my best to conform to your posting rules and all other rules that apply,

have a great day everyone

Let me help you out. Do you also have an RX-7? I ask because you mentioned in a previous post you're registered in that forum.

BTW, don't get pissed just because it's hard to get your post count up. You'll thank us in the future!

And finally; as Sam already told you before: where are the pics?

actually it's not. you're a teacher, so I expect this to sink in and for you to pass it on to the next guy who tries this (later today I suspect).

You can increase your post count by posting thoughtful, insightful, and meaningful content. that does not include one sentence in a random thread about how you agree or disagree. it also does not include non-sequitur anecdotes that dont relate to a thread. it also (hint!) does not include posting several times in a few minutes in the same thread. there is an edit button to prove you don't need to do that.

plus, by waiting a little while and learning from the community, you wont come back in a month posting something like:

I paraphrased but you get the idea.

thank you all for the advice,
however, my patience is actually not the problem, my time is.
I am a teacher, I work 12 hours and I am a engineer , so therefore I have learnt patience, just I have only 24 hours a day to 36 hours of work....lol
I am sure you all understand that.
and for the question about the RX7 . the answer is yes I owned a RX7 which I sold when I bought the MIata,
