    Why are soooooo many posts being moved to consumer opinions? Can someone clarify what is considered the correct type of subject for "consumer opinions"? I went ahead and posted here just in case... Not questioning the mods judgement, just curious!

    If the posts are technical (How do you build or do something) it is your opinion and that is where it belongs (Consumer Opinions)
    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    The technical section is for things how you build widows for a Labo, the consumer opinion section is for things like weather you like an engine that is N/A or blown.

    I am going to propose the following and would like to see some feed back.

    Technical: By it's definition could be about how, why, or help with a physical part
    tech·ni·cal/ˈteknikəl/
    Adjective:
    Of or relating to a particular subject, art, or craft, or its techniques: "technical terms"; "a test of an artist's technical skill".
    (esp. of a book or article) Requiring special knowledge to be understood: "a technical report".

    General: Non technical subjects like design, ideas, or philosophies related to home built cars.
    Affecting or concerning all or most people, places, or things; widespread: "books of general interest".

    Opinion: Yelp for kit car manufactures, reviews like in Amazon.
    A view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.
    The beliefs or views of a large number or majority of people about a particular thing.

    Brastic - you're spot on and thats exactly how it has been on this forum for years, that is until very recently as one of the mods seems to have got a bit confused over what a 'consumer opinion' is. Surely after all these people complaining the other mods should do something to stop threads getting wrongly moved around?!

    We were hacked and some posts were moved.
