Ive noticed we get a fair amount of questions, general posts, and even criticism from the above member (Yes i know this is actually lots of different folks)
Occasionally, we all post as "Holden Fan" usually this is an unintended oversight when we are logged out.
Now i'm happy to share knowledge and advice, (even if this isn't really appreciated or acknowledged) but I do wish people would just bite the bullet, sign up and put a name to their post. "Holden fan" is often the first to criticise. Its too easy to be a troll when you are a nameless nobody.
To future "Holden fan(s)" in waiting, a message - " We welcome you to our friendly online community. We'd love to get to know you. Please put a name to your posts.

I just counted over 30 non-spam members waiting from last month but the old way of new members burned too many people. No one has got too unhinged yet, so things are sweet.

[If your wanting to become a new member give me an email and some good reasons with a pictorial or a large bribe and I will secretly fix things for you]

"I love them, never been in a garage or had dirt or grease under a finger nail,"

Interesting assumption mate, but you are absolutely wrong, I have commented here a few times, I've had over 40 motorcycles and numerous muscle cars, a HK GTS monaro, 2 SLR's, A couple of GT falcons, an early GTR torana and I currently have 2 eh's and a HD ute, I've built or worked on every car I've owned. I'm currently doing up both an EH and HD ute, one is running a stroker holden v8, and the eh is running a 12 port headed red 202, all done by myself, and the stroker is going into my HD ute. I'm a painter by trade and do most of the work involved by my self. I come here now and again to source info on red six stuff and to offer a little advice based on 40 years of automotive work, I also used to work at one of the biggest motorcycle shops in Sydney in the 1980's. Stereo typing is no way to make a point. I'm not shy, I'm already a member of enough car and bike forums, its a pity some of you are so intolerant....

ok
so why are you only a "Holden fan" and you don't sign in ?
You must admit, there is more than 1 "holden fan" and YES there are some smart and talented ones, That we don't know of and then theirs the other type.
All im saying is the "holden fan" gets blamed for post that another "holden fan' puts up and the first one gets blamed or offended by the second one that he didn't do or comment on or has given wrong advice or a lead to a hard to get part or business !!

Are you confused yet ?
cose members that sign in are !
To this holden fan, as i always say,
Stay safe and have a safe day

I wouldnt be to harsh on “Old Holdeners” I’ve seen sometimes they’ve offered up the best advice to members questions. Whether it’s a member not signed in or not who knows, wouldn’t always be the case though

I agree Bryan..just sometimes the way some "nameless" people ask questions without any manners or thanks as though it's just a Q being put to a robot challenges your desire to want to offer an opinion/assistance..

As Holden fan I can remain anonymous, but by having an internet handle is also anonymous to some extent.

Yes some are trolls, some though are trying to correct incorrect information, but is taken as offensive because some do not like people contradicting them.

Some forums survive well with compulsory registration others die because of it. This is even evident on some facebook pages.

As a "Holden fan" I wish you all the best in working what is best for "old Holden".

I first registered on OH in about 2001 when I had my 1971 HQ Premier, but I've had too many email addresses and passwords since to know how to get my old id back. I'd love to know how you do it. I don't suppose it really matters, I'll just register as a new member.

Really, regardless of what name people sign in on, you have NO WAY of knowing if thats their real name or not. Most of the posts I read here have a name attributed to them like Dirdsme for example, now I'm not having a go at you or anyone else but what the hell is a "dirdsme", "Tiki63", "Triple D" ? And why is that not the same as "holden fan".... I've seen lots of great advice and comments from "holden fans", Lets have some perspective here, why does a name of any kind make the comment less pertinent...? ...

Because Triple D is also my e-mail address,
at the bottom of Every post is my e-mail address.

All were trying to find out and work out is WHICH Holden fan is WHICH and to say Thank You to the holden fan that gives the right advice, IT would be nice to say Thank You to someone with a name and not "John Doh"

for those that know Shakespeare...agree some of the login and user names may appear strange but usually there is a reason behind it and in this day and age with so many logins and passwords it's sometimes easy to just use the same one...anyway the benefit of having a name - irrespective of how odd..it's a login with a password and so it represents the same unique individual...I could have used Arsewipe but someone else already has ..

Old is good.

ye your right there,
I Think sometimes the way a question is asked is WHY sometimes it doesn't get answered. it seems more of a demand and tell me now attitude
My old man always told his 4 boys
" It doesn't cost anything to be polite and your manners will be remembered and rewarded" (with a strong wog accent) lol
As i mention above, WE are hear to get and lend some advice,
IN Our Spare Time
And I for one have learnt a lot from fellow members and they have mad me smarter lol
So I say to them, Thank you

As I always say
Stay safe all

I'm going to prefer to read that as problem fixed.

What I changed was capture challenges to be less annoying.
If I upgrade things I will lengthen the cookie(login) timeout here, I think it is 3 or 6 months but it used to be years.

Glad everyone's happy !

Sorry HF. Tiki63 is just my user name, I sign off every post with my REAL name. Oh! And by the way.. I defended the legit advice offered by anonymous Holden Fan posters.
