Chilling Just been reminded how Great AO is.

I have been frequenting another Forum to get information with Regards to the other halves Fiat Bravo.

On a particular forum I have asked a couple of questions with regards to technical information. The replies I have got were very limited, and I also got an infraction for posting a wanted ad in the wrong section.

The forum also seems to be frequented by Chavs with about as much mechanical knowledge as a chimp.

AO on the other hand could not be more different and is a much better place all together.


I will not name the particular Forum, but it does deal with Fiats and it isn't the Fiat Coupe Forum (FCCUK is a great place).

You will never be cool driving a Vauxhall.

Re: Just been reminded how Great AO is.

Well I think mistaken authority can get in the way on other forums, give respect, get respect is my motto! We run AO with a real structure very similar to what you would find in any large business, at times we have had as many as 32 active members of staff and I believe this is the key to our success, everyone knows what to do and we communicate with each other very well in the mod/admin lounges.

Thanks for posting this, I know it will be really appreciated by the rest of our team.

Alfaowner is run brilliantly IMO.
That is one reason why I spend so much time on here even though I don't have an Alfa at present.

Although that might change in the near future.


I will buy a premio membership next time BTW.

Re: Just been reminded how Great AO is.

If it is Simon, I wasn't impressed when the Missus had some probs with the GP, no great help. AO is more than a car forum, it's more like a place where kindred spirits meet

Re: Just been reminded how Great AO is.

I only popped in here to ask about a sticky fuel filler cap on a P1 GTV

I liked it so I stayed

Seriously when staff see stuff like this it makes all the time we spend on line behind the scenes all worth it thanks

I couldn't agree more. AO is very well run and it's great to have the tech advice when you need it

I second that! When I've had 4 hours sleep, my eyes are burning and things just won't go right It's good to see that our efforts are appreciated

Re: Just been reminded how Great AO is.

I have to agree, and also allows one to vent, within reason and have a laugh. But, there is a massive depth of information already here, or able to be answered.

I only came on here, looking for some info about the 145... and I joined within a month.

Top work, keep it up.
