Alright, now that the game is out over in Europe, and it's just a few days away from it's release over here in the US, I figured we may need one of these. We've already got a small, but pretty good gang here and it would be really cool if we could get it to grow!
How can we do this you may be thinking? Well this thread works as a hub for ideas and thoughts about ways to improve the forum and things of that sort and allows the community to discuss what direction we should take. ^___^
If you think a thread needs stickied or any other things beyond the functions of a normal member, I'll be checking in on this forum frequently and can do it (PM me or request it here), and if it is really urgent and I'm not around feel free to contact one of the two section mods (tallteen86 and DTFC4Life) about it. So let's get the ball rolling and start throwing out ideas!
And one that I think would be good would be a general Racing Requests thread or something where players can meet and setup online races with each other. Another may be a "Check out my track/mod/kart" thread as a way for people to give feedback on your latest creations. Think those will work? Got any cool ideas yourself?
Edit: Also, what about a PSN Database for us to all get in contact with each other? Or should that be grouped in with the racing request thread?

Ok so the forum hasn't been very active for the past couple of weeks. That, and we need more entries for the creation competition. So how about you guys help out advertising for it in our sigs?
Not sure how to post the mark up for it, but you could just quote that.

I think people dont use it because its kinda hard to race each other now because of the region lock. Theres not that many people in each region to play together. If theres only 1 or 2 people, then most prob they already have each other on their friend list. So u dont need to go here to set up races anymore if u can do it in-game.

Well it kept drifting off of the first page, so I floated it so it wouldn't be hidden away, haha.
It hasn't seem to gotten much use though, so I'll try unfloating it and see if it really does pick up (or if it is just because it's been brought up here, haha. either way, more activity would be lovely!). ^__^

I did see that but from past experience I find that people tend to steer away from posting in stickies threads and prefer one normal thread. I don't know why but hey, each to their own.

Well we already have a Race Requests Thread for those looking for other people that are up for a race.

Well until the region lock is fixed we could have an 'Open Gameroom' thread for people to host races and have fun playing with each other.
Like open lobbies in cod.

Waiting around until at least an ETA on when the region lock will be done away with would be nice, because then we could just have some pool play going on within each region, followed by a championship series once the region lock is fixed.
But if you want to start up a tournament thread in the meantime, and maybe hold region-only tourneys until then that's fine by me. We need more US players, haha. =(

Maybe you should wait till the region lock is fixed? That way you could do one whole big tournament, and it gives more people the chance to show up and you guys the chance to practice more
and i might have the game by then

The servers are fine now. Perhaps if we are to do this league we wait until the end of this coming week because they are going to be patching problems from Mon-Thurs 12-3pm GMT +0
