I have noticed many members simply post a "Status Update" when they want to ask a question or tell others about something instead of posting to the Message Board. The problem with this is that it is only seen by those you have "friended" on the site and believe most of you want the entire group to see your posts.
With that in mind, I have disabled the Status Update feature and instead encourage you to click on Message Board in the header and "+Add" to create your message so we can all see your posts and respond. The message board is also more versatile in terms of embedding pictures, links, and other content whereas the 'Status Update" feature was quite limited.
If you have not posted to our message board before, now would be a great time to "kick the tires" and post something and tell us what you are up to, something about your Cadillac, or ask us a question, or just say hello!
