Info about VIM20 on top of homepage
« on: August 28, 2017, 23:19:31 »
What's about my proposal to post a report (or the introduction vid) of our next VIM, VIM20, on top of our homepage?

For me it's much more interesting than a AT-meeting in the US (as I have written before) and in the sense of our new/old admin we can win new blood for our forum and/or our VIMs.

What's your opinion?

Makes really good sense to me, the next VIM should, in my view, be the top in the story section.  This will make it very visible and help to keep it in the minds of members.

Josep and his team is working on it, please allow us some time.  ;)
First preliminary information will become available later this autumn.

Regarding the @AT meeting in the US... Please understand, that this Forum is an International forum, despite that its point of gravity (members) is located in the Old Continent.
Since the new CRF1000F Africa Twin has become available global (unfortunately this was not the case for the Varadero and the Crosstourer), sharing meetings and events from all over the Globe could (carefully) increase the international activity in our community... I know, it is a tad wishful thinking, but all things start small  ;D

Better announce logo competition in this moment? Pictures are more attractive to the eyes and says more than 1000 words

@meine dicke has a valid point even if I understand the forum now also want to attract Africa Twin owners in North America from the pure Africa Twin forums

Yes, I understand and Josep posted already sth. about the ongoing process.

But why donŽt you post the well done and existing introduction video on top of the story section with the information that more about VIM20 will come soon.

So everybody opening the homepage can see that there is a VIM next year and will be informed by the video and will be informed of the coming information. May be with a link to the VIM-section.

Its a good idea Rainer, to use the video of Andorra VIM instead have a commercial for an event that already been held on the first page
