Exclamation For those feeling displaced by the closing of the STi Forum...

First thing I want to say, is the description alone states this was only a temporary forum.

"Please use this forum for any questions or factual information about the STi. This forum should help in locating STi specific information over the next few months as new info becomes available about the car."

This forum was only put into use to help make info easier to find while news about the car was not readily available because the cars had only just been announced in Detroit.

You guys have to understand that the idea of these forums is to keep discussion together, not separate. There are so many things we can all learn from each other in those other technical forums most of the STi folks have been avoiding so much.

Now... as far as this being a rash decision that is meant to spite all of the STi owners out there... it's not... I have an STi... why would I spite myself?

What you do need to understand is this is the exact same thing that happened when the WRX was released and that forum came and went. We're hearing the same arguments, the same angry comments, the same "I'm leaving and I'll never come back."

It really is better to separate the discussion, especially technical discussion, into their respective forums. You will find that it's much easier to get an answer to your question since the more technical people on the site do spend more of their time in those forums than the STi (if they ever even opened the STi forum, most avoided it like the plague because it was to them a jumbled mess).

Please understand this decision was made for the longevity of the site, not the immediate gratification as the cost of a rogue forum that doesn’t follow the rest of the sites ethic.

For those of you that choose to leave over this, I'm sorry to see change being such an obstacle for you. We have done our best to make the appropriate accommodations to fit whatever forums might be missing to properly address STi discussion (as well as all other 2.5L Turbo cars, everyone seems to forget about the Forester XT and the Baja).

Bottom line is what we've been doing, including decisions like this one, have keep this site around for a very long time and will continue to do so as long as we remain vigilant and make sure we are addressing the needs of the community and not just a select group.
