I think it needs refreshing, maybe an administrator shaking it up a bit to keep it fresh ? I am a member on the MEV forum & Stuart Mills is always on taking care of things and posting regularly. Maybe this is why the MEV is the most successful brand, because you feel 'involved'? Either way, it's taking an age for new people to get accepted onto this forum & Facebook page, maybe because of this it's scaring people off the brand, killing the forums as a result. It is a shame really, this is the cheapest entry point into the kit car world, we should be thriving in financial tough times, not declining.
I don't think you'll ever see a more active management of this forum - Haynes own it and won't hand it over as far as I know (not that I imagine anyone would want to take it on!) and frankly we are lucky that Haynes did not shut it down all together a while ago, as they were considering. It is a good resource and the answers to a lot of things are there if you use the search.
Chris Gibbs, who 'wrote' the Haynes Roadster book had a serious illness, perhaps he would have driven things along otherwise....
