  1. Macca - please wake up and clean the Kadjar forum from f*****g spammer idiots!!!!

  2. Hi, is the forum still down , or do I have to do something to get back on it?

  3. Kadjar Take Two... Awesome!

    Great News enjoy the new kadjar
  4. Renault have released details of the new Grand Scenic: http://motorforums.co.uk/blog/2016/05/24/new-renault-grand-scenic-the-details-have-been-released/
  5. MG GS......hhhhmmm...bit wierd

    It has been officially unveiled by MG http://motorforums.co.uk/blog/2016/05/05/london-motor-show-witnesses-the-inveiling-of-the-new-mg-gs/ a bit ugly IMO and more than a bit like the rumoured Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV that is expected in the coming years.
  6. The WHEELER DEALERS are back as experienced car dealer, Mike Brewer, and multi-talented mechanic, Edd China, return with the 13th series and eight more classic cars with a mix of British, European and American marques. Mike and Edd may have set up their workshop in sunny California, but their love of classics remains universal. Mike navigates the surrounding states in search of cars with money-making potential, bringing them back to Edd for him to work his mechanical magic to restore the cars into profit making machines. In the new series, the boys get eco-friendly with the original ‘Econobox’, a 1977 Honda CVCC; rescue a neglected and extremely rusty 1965 Land Rover Series 2a; get aircooled California style in a 60s Corvair, and put the zip back into the performance of an 80s icon, the 1988 Ford Mustang 5.0.

  7. !st April Price Hike

    Renault will have to be careful with their pricing though, especially with the new SEAT Ateca coming later in the year and that has been confirmed with a starting price of £17,990 http://seatsuvforums.com/topic/417-seat-ateca-full-uk-spec/#comment-438
  8. Keycard

    Sorry if I have offended Manns, I was actually referring to the materials used, not the actual finished products, leather is usually regarded as of a 'higher quality' than vinyl as far as I am aware but as you have proven members are extremely happy with their purchases from you, so all's good My fault I should have explained better in my post, I also take your point about the other thread, I will address that too but surely you want to keep it friendly anyway otherwise all selling on the forum would just end up being banned as it is on most forums. Andy
  9. Keycard

    Please keep it friendly regarding the key card holders, both members are equally free to sell them here on the forum (Even though many forums would not allow it) mainly because they are required for the kadjar key cards, There is a market for both, as with everything in life some people prefer lower prices and some prefer higher quality, each to their own. BoxerDog has been in touch and is getting some information together along with some pictures and I will be allowing both members to advertise them alongside each other with no favouritism, that said I believe Renault do visit the RKF from time to time and if they raise an issue with the logo use we may have to revisit this. I will also shortly be moving these threads to a new dedicated marketplace area where members will be able to make their choices from the available items. Cheers, Andy

    let me know guys if you would like me to set you up a regional forum area, could be a good way to ensure nobody gets missed in future
  11. Forum spammed with adverts?

    Alan, I think the original post was regarding post spam, ie bots that trawl the internet attempting to post on all websites, usually advertising viagra, or muscle products, these are of no use to anybody and are dealt with as quickly as is humanly possible. With regards to your other points, I am very happy to address your concerns however, 21 Social Network Requests: I have linked in the forum to both our twitter and facebook accounts with many users on here using that method of staying in touch, including I must say Renault Retail, who contacted me via twitter hopefully to help a member of the forum out with a problem, hopefully they will do this more and more over time. 6 Web Analytics: Almost every website adds analytics to their pages, this allows google to gather details of which parts of the website are popular, so we can tailor the site to users demands, absoloutely no personal data is recorded though, merely which town a visitor is from, and which parts of the site a user visits, see our http://renaultkadjarforum.co.uk/privacypolicy/ regarding this. 16 Ad Agency Requests: This does not mean there are 16 adverts on a page, this merely is down to the way that Google checks we are not showing more than three ads per page in line with their publishers policy, they check all aspects of a page to ensure this, if I could also add, I do not and will never ad pop up ads as they are a particular bug bear of mine, or those horrible spurious magazine headlines that seem to be loads of sites at the moment, although you will find them on a lot of the most visited automotive sites from time to time. I also try to not make the ads too intrusive. 'All Ads Are Spam' Obviously this is down to each individuals opinion, they do however help to contribute to the upkeep of the site and improvements, including larger hosting plans and servers as the site continues to gain in popularity, that said if you would like me to create a paid membership tier for members that could remove all ads, as with anything to do with the site, just let me know, I was however trying to avoid any type of paid membership though, so the forum remains free for anybody and everybody with a genuine interest to use it. I would also like to add with regards to this subject that the internet has hundreds of thousands of superb articles and references on nearly every subject that people have taken the time in some cases weeks to put together and you and I can visit and read them for free, I personally think they are deserved of a penny or two (literally) for what they would recieve for showing me an Ad upon my visit, that again includes all the a lot of the online car magazines that I know of, unless of course again you pay a subscription fee. Personally I haven't utilised that area of internet security as is isn't a 'security' threat and I wouldn't like to see the end of all those magazine type sites, probably because I'm a saddo and love reading them for free, not too sure if they would be still around in a few years if they recieved no ad income though. I'd love to hear members feedback on this, regarding any of the points as obviously the site is nothing without you all and I am always striving to make it better all the time. Andy
  12. Forum spammed with adverts?

    my thoughts for the moment Alan, I try to get on the forum every few hours and reported posts come through to my mobile email anyway so I can always get them removed fairly quickly, I also have good spam management software active that catches 99% of it, so I do everything I can but any help from you guys and girls by reporting spam helps me out. Thanks Andy
  13. Forum spammed with adverts?

    Hi Jim, Unfortunately a constant problem with any forum in fact any site that accepts user comments, I clean them up as soon as reported, I have removed the one reported post, I can't find any more, am I missing one? Please PM me or report it ASAP and I can remove it. PS I am considering making members first post be a moderated one when first signing up but am in two minds as don't want to slow peoples enthusiasm when joining, be good to hear members thoughts on this please Andy
