Post FIXING LADSM
our senior members of the forum, including myself, have noticed many changes in the forum as a whole.

this site has been going downhill and LADSM is becoming just a pathetic group of shit talkers that dont even show up to our weekly meets nor contribute helpful information and help each other out when needed.


this has to stop. lets try to take LADSM a little bit more seriously.

if you're a member that truly cares about the integrity of the forum, and wants to be part of a respectable group of people that share the love for DSM's post your suggestions here on what WE can do to help this forum/'car club' become something that we can proud of being a part of.

WE are Los Angeles Diamond Star Motors

one of the big goals would be to see LADSM show strong numbers at our weekly meets, and from that expand to bigger gatherings like beach bbq's, appearences at different car events, caravans, photoshoots, etc.

dont post anything or agree to anything that you yourself wouldn't be willing to do in order to help this forum pick itself up.


one of the MAJOR (in my opinion) problems we've had lately is the shit-talking. i vote for keeping the shit talking out of the forum. anyone can act tough behind the keyboard. if you have a problem with someone, deal it with them in a private matter. after all, we have "PRIVATE MESSAGING" available, if that doesn't work, there's other ways to communicate (i.e. AIM, MSN, Yahoo, cell phone, face to face, etc.)


i know there's alot of problems, common guys, share your input.

Yea i know that, LADSM is capable of being real big.And it would be nice to see that.I dont think any of us should be shit talking, even if we just fucking around,We can keep that at the meets were we can see thats its all shits & giggles.But to have all this shit talking on the forum makes us all look bad.Like we all in a forum/club car and not get along.So i strongly agree with Erix to make this what it can be and make DSM well known in So-Cal and No-Cal....

Most of us at one time or another break these rules more often than not. They're usually quick, witty and taken in good intentions. Other times, they're unfunny, pointless attacks with no merit. There's no clear line drawn between what is clearly acceptable and shit you should not post. Take this as a blurry boundary to help familiarize what's going to start being enforced.

I'm too lazy and too lenient with you guys. So are the other admins and mods. Probably not gonna change realistically either for the long run. That doesn't mean you're free and clear to skate by with dumb crap.

Tech and classifieds, 0 bullshit rule in effect. Keep your funnies to yourself. Keep your opinions to yourself. If it doesn't help someone's car run or help someone buy/sell something they need to, don't. Expect warnings and bans depending on the retardness of your action. Every other thread not including the off-topics, it's nice to have amusing comments that naturally occur. Don't go out of your way and make fun of people and don't derail threads. If we feel you're acting like a jerk trying to be funny but making things pathetic, we'll find you. If you're asked to chill out and take it somewhere else, listen.

And for the rest of you that aren't jokers, there's a report button on the bottom right of each post. When you press it and submit it, and admin sees it and can take care of it. If you fuck around with it though, you will be punished.

Help us keep the boards fun, informative and welcoming. I don't want everyone acting like pruds but don't be jackasses either.

Im sure all the admins and mods agree with what erix and christ have posted up. I agree that we have been way too lenient but that will change soon. And im all up for having another bbq/bonfire/caraven like last year.

I like christ's input. Fun and games are great in the off-topic sections, but keep it out of the tech section. While the amount of shit talking is a problem, the derailed threads is a bigger problem.

Post Re: FIXING LADSM
I have taken some action in this matter, and will continue to. I'm getting tired of the problems we are having. I dont care if our numbers dwindle, I perfer QUALITY over quantity. I would rather have 10 guys that are dedicated and go to meets, events, and contribute positively to the forum, than 400+ registered users and all they do is steal 5 minutes of my life with stupid threads.

1. If you're new and start talking out of your ass about how you pull low 12's, with no tune, on street tires, but have no timeslip, dont bother trying to post again....you wont be able to.

2. As admins and mods, lets not override one another's decisions. If there is an issue that you feel is unjust, ie: an admin banned someone you don't think should of been banned, bring it up with all the admins and talk about wether or not we should change the ruling.

3.Use COMMON SENSE!!!! Don't expect us to "back your play" when you go to another forum/myspace/car meet/etc...and start claiming how everyone else sucks and LADSM is super chingon. We are not a gang!!!! We are a group of guys/gals/other that have a passion for DSM's.

4.If you don't like what I'm saying, go start your own club/crew/forum/gang/etc..... No one is making you stay here.

Admins if you have any input feel free to chime in.

I agree in all of this I am a noob here but now a regular I try my hardest to show up to the meets but I own a dsm so that figures. I do have a DD but my parents use it as well. If my car would be running I would show up every Monday and all the other meets. Oh yeah christ when I hit the members link you can see 400+ members and some never log in is there a way that you can ban the ones that haven't logged in in years. I think the tech rule of no funnies is uncool I mean let them say something funny but they need to say something tech at the end or help out. Another thing the admins mods can do is stop the stupid posting that don't contribute I keep seeing stupid post like like damn that suxs hope you get it running or damn I remember that happened to me there will be a total of 30 post and only one of those helps out. If the weekly meet doesn't end up like christ wants then you should limit the post of members that never show or keep them from selling parts. I found a video of ladsm back in 07 WOW total of 20+ cars just driving cruising stopping some were to get something to eat. Why does this not go down anymore.

I don't see why cleaning up users that don't visit frequently is required? It's not cluttering up the forum or taking space or resources. A small number of those users do visit the board from time to time but choose to browse instead of posting. If you have a logical reason why they should be deleted and what accounts meet the requirements, I'd like to hear it.

Tech is a place for technical advice and trouble shooting. Not pointless joking and screwing around. If I make a post about my wing falling off while driving on the freeway, funny comments would be acceptable as long as they're in good taste and on topic. If I make a post about wanting to mod my T-25 power motor and you lol at me for being T-too slow in a serious post while everyone else is giving serious technical answers, not acceptable.

0 content posts are pointless and contribute nothing but I personally don't care to moderate them. If another admin/mod wants to, that's their choice. +1'ing, good job or hope it works out for ya are simply people feeling you or agreeing with you. It's nice to know what you did is approved of or that people want to see you succeed. I'm not going to regulate it because the positive reinforcement outweighs the lack of fresh content.

My comment about attending meets in order to post was purely comedic. I'll never ban anyone for not attending a meet. I am however disappointed with our turnouts lately compared to previous meets and gatherings. It's irritating to see 20-40 regular posters on the forum each week yet have a 6 car turnout at the weekly meet. I know there's downed cars and that lame basketball team has been playing at the same time but I feel some of you that are able to make it but choose not to consistently are only hurting yourself. It was awesome to show up to a meet and have two lanes full of 1 and 2gs there with a diverse group of interesting people. I can't make any of you come or even care but I know I'm not the only one that enjoys them and doesn't want to see it fade away.

Yeah I guess the only reason I said to erase them was I thought it takes up space or something but disregard that then I also thought it slowed down the forum but its cool. Yeah I know I guess I was kinda mad when i see that but its cool when people say good luck or something.Yeah I sometimes see people saying naw that turbo is to fucking slow or make fun of them. yeah i guess you are right tech question should be taken seriously. So any plans christ on making LADSM better or more functional. Yeah meets should be more packed and it would be cool. What we need is also a weekly cruise on the PCH lol. Get rid of all the stupid problems with the cars lol.

Its not that they make fun of you but its your typing. Prof read what you type so you dont get laughed at luis. Also make sure what you say is correct like V4 that does not exist anymore. Its called Inline4 or I4. This forum everyone gets laughed at or made fun of every once in a while look at me and my avatar I love my little sister its a fun joke not to be taken seriously. But yeah I agree the admins mods are waaaaaay to lenient on members and post that happens. Also there needs to be grammar police lol. I hope this site does get fixed so when guest check us out they think cool these people are smart and helpful and funny. Or when guest see all the shit talking they go away like naw they just talk alot of shit.

fuck it am just going to say it stop making fun off people thats a way u make people dont want to go. when i just found out about this site i was exited. my first meet was to rig b day a the beach and i had a blast, after that i never miss a monday nite meet. now every one makes fun off me and saw people at the meet talking about me and no one talks to me and it got boring. i didnot want to go any more for that reason. but i still try too go to events but after they make fun what i say insterd off helping me. so u dont under stand what i just said well idk, but i try soory. try too make fun of people to a the minumum as posible or dint even better.


You know I want to feel bad for you but I don't know when you're trying to make an effort or not. When I think you're trying to pick yourself up, you go and do something stupid. And not just whatever stupid, but wtf stupid. Just look at your post above...There's five obvious misspellings not to mention countless grammatical errors. You even double space and I'm not talking about between lines, you press the space bar twice between half of your words. You don't have to type as well as I do but you have to at least be understood by me to get me to take you serious. Take your time writing your posts, re-read it and do it once more. Ask yourself "Does this make sense? Am I saying something that will be laughed at and taken as a joke?" If you can confirm all of these things, then make the post. If not, go back and edited it or delete it and save yourself the humiliation. You're not a bad guy but you get held back by your bad social skills. I guaranty you if you make noticeable improvements in your posting, you'll find interacting with the rest of us to be a lot more rewarding. And this isn't directed just towards Luis.

When we upgraded the form we did a lot of clean up and eliminated a lot of accounts that had never posted and the upgrade has done a good job of keeping out spammers.
