View Full Version : sticky for each product - images and description included

I suggest having a sticky thread on each product in the Meguiar's product line (image and product description for each). Each of these products can be put under the appropriate categories ie. consumer products, professional products etc. and sorted alphabetically or by product number.

example:
http://meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38030
have a sticky like this for each product.

Typically when somebody asks for a product recommendation, members give a recommendation along with a link to an external site or they use photos from an external site. That thread ends up buried and repeated along with the possibility of the link being broken. Why not build up a discussion under each product that is easy for members to look up or point to.

I realize this would be a big project, but it doesn't have to be done all at once. It could start with the 2010 products and it carry on with the new 2011 products. If Meguiar's wants to add the older products, they could add a few every week.

Great idea- also what would help is an application process guideline- like DA/Rotary speed settings for products, etc... I know they're in posts, but having everything in one place would be a nice reference...

Great idea, Bill! I also like the suggestion of adding the speed settings for each product on the DA and Rotarys. Maybe add: Let dry to haze befor wiping off....or wipe off befor drying.

I like the idea but it might be a bit messy to have that many stickies in a forum. If they're going to do that, they might as well close the forum to new threads because with 40 stickies, nobody else's threads will ever be seen anyway. In fact, with that many stickies, even some of the other stickies will be missed which will likely result in people just creating a new thread about the product in the forum or Detailing 101.

Maybe a cheat sheet with all products and techniques listed in one sticky in the same post. That way we could print it and enlarge it to hang in the garage.

This is actually a great idea, and we could easily create a new section in the forum dedicated to it - sort of a reference section that is closed to discussion.

But, um, wow. What a daunting task!!!! Or is it????? There just may be a way to streamline the process and make it not completely overwhelming for the poor sap who'd have to do it.

Namely, me. :D


It sure isn't happening anytime before SEMA though!
