Not sure if we've had this conversation before, but I'm wondering if this forum should be restricted to women only.
Would that offer a better sense of comfort?
Would the men be terribly offended if they couldn't get in here?

If you prefer to voice your opinion in private, feel free to PM or email me.

Thanks!

It wouldn't bother me one bit.

May I offer a suggestion?...Just make one of the gals a Moderator there and lock out the guy Mods. also to keep it basically "dude free."
 Except for yourself Adam. You are the home owner here.

This has come up before and I'd be in favor of putting the "Ladies Only" sign on the door.  Sarge makes a good point also.

I say give them their own space, if they need help I'm sure they will ask. It might help create more interest in the forum by women vette loversWink

I'd also say to give them their own space. Treat it like the "Anything Goes" forum, where only the people who have access to it see the content. Micki is already a moderator, so it probably wouldn't be an issue for her to keep an eye on the Women's forum.

Sorry Micki, here I am volunteering you for something!!

Interesting that the guys are the ones responding here.

I too am in favor of them having their own section.  Maybe they won't post those nasty emails about men on our sideRolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20LaughingRolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20LaughingRolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20Laughing

DREAM ON!!!!  Rolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20Laughing

Personally, I kinda like the guys opinions on stuff.  Doesn't bother me any.  Like I said before, if there was an "all guys" forum, I'd want to be on that one, too!!!

I am OK too, with having it for only the women.Thumbs%20Up
 
But I think, Maybe the overall decision should be up to the women
        You could email all the female members??
        Maybe a vote??

I agree with Steve (and not cause he has a 74 too).   Wink   I feel the gals should decide if they want their forum private.  As far as I'm concerned,
I've never been in their forum, so its fine with me.

Hmmm...seems a lot of guys are saying it's okay to give them they're own forum/space/section, whatever...
But...fact is, they already have that. It is the Vette Women's forum.
I think it should totally be for the ladies only. If the ladies have tech questions or such, then there is the rest of the C3VR site for them to post in.
My vote/opinion is to lock the doors to the ladies room, and keep the menfolk out.
I also agree with having one of the ladies moderate it, keeping it testosterone-free.


The irony of posting this question, in this forum, has just hit me...

most of the responses have been from guys... Adams' Apple2007-12-12 20:20:24

I thought it was already set up that way.
The guys could look, but not touch.
Unless the new forum software unlocked the door.
 
Now if you wanted to make it real private for them, make it like the moderators forum where the guys can't even see what they are saying about us.LOL
 
But I would want the same thing for us males so we can tell dirty little lies about them as well.
 
Of course, then Karen will go sneaking over to Parrothead's computer.Rolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20Laughing

Would I do something like that????  Shocked
 
Yep....  Wink  Although, sometimes ignorance is bliss!
 
By the way, when I first joined C3VR the Vette Women's forum was DEAD!  Didn't really come to life until the guys had the informal OK to post there.  My $ .02.  Maybe there are now enough female members to support a separate forum...???  Whatever.....

I think it would be nice to have a "spot/place" where only ladies can chat. The guys have been quite helpful in this forum, but for me it's rare to have a forum for lady vette lovers.
 
I'm in 2 clubs in NY and they very male dominated. Nice guys, but hardly any female input. I would love to get together/talk about the car with some ladies from my area.
 
I agree we could still go to other forums for help or to chat with the guys. Fellows, you still rock!!

Greypop. I see you're an artist. My son is 13 and also an artist. He takes classes and draws a lot of "still life". Currently he's auditioned for some of the art High Schools in NYC. Which area of art expression do you find most lucrative?

June - I'm into oils, murals, and caricatures.  I like to paint and draw people mainly, but I can draw or paint anything.  I probably could have been more advanced in my career if I had not givin most of my time and effort to my son.  But, now he's gone and so I'm startin' over....LOLLOLLOL
