Following the "dedicated sports" thread, i must advocate for the home improvement section. I think the average Bitoger makes conscious choices and/or is a DIYer, thus, is naturally interested into construction/home improvement along cars.

I vote Yes rather than Home Improvement being posted in General and Off Topic.

I mean, there's probably plenty of home improvement forums on the interweb, but as I like getting life advice on the general/offtopic subforum from time to time because I value Bitogers (even those who have different opinions than mines on picky topics), construction/home improvement is in my opinion a BIG one amongst Bitogers.

We like the way our community do/makes things with cars, and with everything around.

The point I am trying to make stand is that I find interesting to have a Bitoger interest/hobby in the light.

There's many car forums but I barely only stay here, because there's something more about cars here, and it's our people.

Yes.

I have received some good (home DIY) advise here and did better then just thinking on my own.

The way the idea for a sports-related forum got shot down, I'd expect this one to get shot down as well.

Going back to the sports forum, people should post their questions in the "Bicycle" sub-forum grin Can't have a general, overall sports forum but can have one for one specific sport ???

This is a site about oil and lubrication.

Bicycles have unique lubrication circumstances, as do firearms and airplanes.

That’s the taxonomy: lubrication requirements divided into sections and sub sections.

Those categories have morphed into threads and topics far beyond the original intent of how this site was organized...

Look guys, this site is run by volunteers, at very low cost. No one is making any money on this venture. It’s a platform for discussing oil. Not sports. Not home improvement.

We may share those interests, and we have had lots of great discussion on lots of off-topic subjects, but asking for a change in the site organization, for new sections, is asking for a monumental amount of work from those unpaid volunteers.

They already give a ton of time, and you want more?

You don’t contribute one dime to the site, don’t support it with your time or money, but you want others to give their time and money for your convenience?

Just to change it for you?

You really think that’s a reasonable request?

I sure don’t.

By the way, Wayne, Helen, moderators, and others, thank you for all your time and effort keeping this site running. I know it’s a ton of work, and I am grateful for your efforts.

Come the new year, you can count on me to donate again.

Cheers,
Astro
