Split the Thompson Boards?

I voted NO because, as others have said, I think a board for each model would be difficult for you and us. However, I can see value to separating the FA and SA posts. I tend to check everything anyway, but my prime interest is FA at this time.

Keep it the way it is. I voted no but decline to call you a dummy......far from it. Thanks for the option of voting. I agree with Lionhart, let the votes decide.

What kind of Kaw do you have? I had a KZ 1300 for a while and loved it. Nothing like seeing a 6 cylinder shaft drive bike stand up on the rear tire!Now my Ultra Classic won't do that, but that sure was fun and fast. Kind of miss those days.

Hey, maybe we should split the board into three sections; semi, full and motorcycles.

SEMI AUTO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION (READ THIS BEFORE POSTING)
In this post we could supply some simple basic answers such as:
1. Can I convert a semi auto to a full auto?
2. Can I buy a shorter 10.5 inch bbl and put it on my semi auto?
3. Are the new Khar Thompsons reliable out of the box?
4. Differences in semi auto sticks and full auto sticks (oval vs circle and installing new mag catch)
5. Will the M1 accept a drum?
6. Why do full autos cost so much?
These are just some examples that we see all the time and the answer is the same everytime. I was once a newbie and asked all kinds of stupid questions (upon review of these old posts, I sounded like a complete idiot). The guys got pretty frustrated with me and I see why, I just didn't know. If we could condense some of this basic semi auto information into a pinned post (now possible because of the new board), we could save a lot of time.
Ideas for the FAQ??

Then a good list of smiths for those special jobs.
"Hint, Hint, PK!!
A book of the above nature would be quite an undertaking, with a fairly good size market, provided that the new laws do not go into effect.
Not so long ago on the old board there was talk of a FAQ section, to help eliminate the redundant postings. Some of the information is very well hidden!

Sorry, but on this issue, we are going to have to "agree to disagree". I'm with most the other board members "if it isn't broke, don't fix it!!!!" Too much good information being shared between our members, weather you own full or semi, to split it up now. (Love ya guys, but you can't have my "Bud Light")
Just my two cents,
PS - Don't mind my avatars, I'm still playing with it!!!?????........ Have a nice day.

I was just about to ask what the hell that was in the avatar. I was a little afraid to ask until you mentioned it.

Don't feel bad , I had no clue until I saw a few guys talking about it, but dam, I like to use those "Smilies"
PS - Can you tell what my "avatar" is? ( clue, DRUM???!!!) HA
