There should be a member of the media team, or just regular staff, that posts a weekly review/news/updates thread. Mention results of the weeks worth of racing, any notable achievements by TORA drivers (ESL?), mention ongoing work for future series, mention the need for volunteers if required, mention those contributing to development, etc... It doesn't have to be a publication with graphics and everything that goes with a newsletter.. just communicate and take down some of those blackout curtains currently separating the users that make up this community from the users that work for the community... I'm sure there's an existing member of staff or people on this site that do this kind of thing for a living (CRM? ITSM? Mar/Com? etc) --improvement of service quality perception and communication-- that would be happy to help if that's the direction the site decides to go.

In the grand scheme of things I've not been here long and sometimes I do get the impression my input is overlooked if that's the best way to put it.
I'm fairly active on the forums and while I'm not the quickest guy out there by far I'm hoping some of you would have noticed in touring cars especially that I stay out of trouble.......however whether it's unintentional or not I do do get the feeling sometimes that members opinions can be sometimes swept under the carpet.

I read you have 30 hours per day time to do this?
As nice as that would be it's not possible to do. Due to the huge pile of work it involves. We do have Twitter and Facebook where you can follow whats happening.

As nice as that would be it's not possible to do. Due to the huge pile of work it involves. We do have Twitter and Facebook where you can follow whats happening.

I was actually thinking you could leverage the existing info rather than recreating anything.

For instance maybe once a week someone just takes a copy of the updates/posts that were spread across TORA's official twitter and facebook feeds into a single forum thread, because like you said there's already comments about ESL and other "goings on". Copy and paste rather than recreate.

As far as reporting on the event standings and weekly race results, it could be something left up to the series organizer to determine how much detail gets included. If the series organizer wants to write up commentary on each weeks races, then let them have a common place to share that commentary. If an organizer is too busy or just doesn't want to write up commentary, then the "update" from that series is just a copy of the most recent standings documents (and in this case, thats a 1 time creation of the shortcut and no further work required).

I'm not trying to trivialize the effort that goes into a task like this, I'm just saying there may be ways to achieve the goal without doing new/extra work

Post by HCR TJSteel on Wed 7 Dec 2016 - 10:04

The reason there hasn't really been anything official said by the staff yet, is because the N24 literally just finished so we need time to recover after that, I for one am still struggling to stay awake during the day due to the lack of sleep (think I got 3 hrs on Saturday night and I need way more than that).

Secondly you guys have posted multiple pages in the general discussions etc so if you want us to listen we need time to read through this, it's not something I'm able to do over a lunch break for example lol.

Third thing, it's almost Christmas, so I'm sure there are people out there who are trying to arrange this for their kids which to me, my family come before Forza so obviously that's what my main focus is on right now.

We're not ignoring you, trust me I do listen to you guys, the addition of multiple things this season which I've brought in for you should prove that Smile, it's just gonna take a little time for us to get this done with everything else going on in real life.

The staff do have a meeting planned very soon to discuss and finalize our plans for next year, so once this is over and we have had time to put things in place behind the scenes we will let you know about it.

Lastly I'd just like to thank everyone for all the hard work put in this season, it really wouldn't have happened without you guys, hopefully for next year, if I'm still to be running TEC, I'll be running it from the start, with all the knowledge gained this season I'm pretty sure I can bring you something everyone can enjoy, whether than be racing in it, painting, tuning, streaming, or even just sitting back and watching, I got a feeling 2017 will be a better season.

I for one I think getting the streams back will be big, because I think a lot of people like that exposure of having your car be seen by a lot of people you know, just a little personal side note.

Just like to echo TJ's comments. Thanks to everyone who's raced this year and have been constructive in their feedback.
We are, as he says, on a downward slope to Christmas now so please give us a bit of a break Wink
There will be news in TRS, there will be news on Twitter and Facebook and most people know to expect my press releases for big series in early Jan or late December.
We do try to cover as much news as we can but it's not always possible for one person, or even a bunch of us to get everything! This is why we do our best to push your content through our channels. Your efforts get rewarded that way.
Trying to work on something similar and bring the "Virtual paddock back to TORA. But alas im losing this battle which ive tried to fight for months now.
Not entirely sure what you mean by this - message me if you have issues.

Cheers guys and Happy Christmas Smile

Sorry if I came across as pushy or demanding when I made my comment about no official direction.. I wasn't implying that there wasn't work going on or that staff doesn't deserve a break, I was just pointing out that nobody had commented from the TORA side after getting a bunch of volunteers. I must have pushed a button though because all of a sudden everyone who's anyone at TORA with TEC series has responded lol I'll try to be more careful in the future as to how I word my comments... but thanks again to staff for coming by the thread and providing updates/comments!
