Looks like I need to get busy doing some posting and doing some of the other necessary things to become a member.

I do attend at least 2 automotive events each quarter, so that won't be a problem.

From what I can see, the best way to obtain membership is to check the site every day, find topics of interest and either post about them, or reply to current topics, generally be active and be seen/heard on the site, attend the necessary automotive events, etc.., and then speak nicely to a member and see if they will sponsor you.


Cool.

I know the question has already been asked in this particular thread in regards to automotive events, but I wanted to know if these types of things would be considered automotive events.

On occasion, someone on our local board will through out a suggestion to meet up for some type of breakfast run, whether it be some breakfast tacos that makes some killer tacos, or just getting together and having breakfast on the weekend. If several people attend (usually 5 - 10 at a minimum), does that qualify?

Also, do these automotive events need to be posted anywhere on this site, and if so, which forum should they be posted in?

Thanks and I am looking forward to being around here for awhile.

Those kind of events count. Our local club does dinner meets and different kinds of runs all the time.

They would need to posted beforehand and in the Motoring Events forum.

I am still a long way from becoming a member. I do have a few questions though. I live in Hawaii so we have a limited amount of members in the local club but we do try to do different things every quarter. Im not sure how other MINI dealers are but our does a lot for the members of the club; can their sponsered events count as an event. Someone asked about other vehicles being "used" for an event. Can I do this, I ask because I am part of a Camaro group/club and also have an R32 that I am playing with (not in a club yet). Pictures are easy to post, can I put up all 3 cars at once? Does working on other cars with others (DIY style) count as events; mods, repairs, upgrades?

The events don't have to be MINI/Mini related... just about cars. Mod parties totally count as long as it is a planned event and others are invited to join in (Diaz, correct me if I wrong)

oh, I don't see a problem making one thread for all your cars.

Yeahman.

Anything automotive related, or even anything just done with the club counts. For example, when I whupt goaljnky's ass at a MININUTS vs TMMZ Chug-a-Lug at Yardhouse, that probly would have counted.

Also you dont even really even have to have a mini(even tho most of us do.) if you are active in the automotive community and make a good impression on us(aka not being a douche) then anything can happen

It's a tire rating. A "N" rated tire is like a stater tire, so the more you post you'll get a higher rating. "Y" rating is the fastest tire.

It means you're a noob. As you post more, your rating will go up, just like tire speed ratings. The if you please the m|u gods you will be annointed with the coveted m|u rating!
