TO: New members and current ones. RE: 100% updated profiles & utilization of our features.

We constantly have new members joining and also have active members in our community that do not complete their information nor utilize our features. We need people to visit their control panel and update all of their information. By updating your profile you become a community member as opposed to another visitor. The more active users and updated profiles – the better off this community is. People do hit-n-runs all the time but every single time the response to the original poster is "what's your location?" or "what make and model is it?" Every single bit of this can be curbed by filling out your information.

Below are links to do this.

Member Map


This is another great feature we have. Thinking of a member meet up? Who's in my area? Who can help me fix this? – you can get all of this information in one single place – our member map!

Garage


List your vehicle in the Garage today. Share what you drive with the club and show what toys and modifications you have done. The Garage is a very useful tool for showcasing your ride. It also is a great way to check out available aftermarket mods and get some valuable insight. It's very important that all club members add their vehicle to the garage. They can make their pages as detailed as they like. In addition, VIP members can add photos of their car and their modifications. For a tutorial on using the Garage, click the link on the bottom of this. And don't forget to leave your thoughts and comments in the member guest books!

Gallery


The gallery is a place for…. Well…. Pictures. It's not just for cars; it's your place for images. You can create your own album and add pictures to it and share them with the community. You can find all sorts of things to browse, see of our member's sightseeing adventures with strange pictures.

Right now we've got five categories.

Members Gallery

The Elantra Gallery

The Hyundai Gallery

Other Vehicles

Miscellaneous Pics

Why not add some pictures today?

------------------------------------

**VIP Membership Packages**


Currently we have five options of becoming a VIP… sometimes six – upon participation of our car of the month or picture competitions… in which you could win a vip package!!

· Six Month Membership $6.99

· One Year Membership $11.99

· Two Year Membership $19.99

· Lifetime VIP membership $29.99

· Lifetimer Plus! $34.99


All of these have more and more options upon each of them.

The good thing is that… the most money you would spend upon going VIP… is $29.99 US.

So, think of those quick fast food trips, morning coffee runs, tank of gas, and dinner out…. You still spend less here going VIP – AND you get more for your money. The time the engine light comes on… and you ask a question and one of our kick ass members answers it… and helps you out and you save major repair costs by us…. Why not kick some $ back to us? You're still saving! Even if you don't want to be a "active member" but want to thank us for helping you out…. It leads me to my next topic….

Donations are used to keep the site running. Our community owner Mitch – well he's a good guy and all but shouldn't be the only one to foot the bill. Think of the costs to run this community! Hosting, domain name renewals, bandwidth, features and any upgrades and add-on's are all footed by Mitch. Donating even one dollar pays for another day to keep this site up and running. It's a great community, our members rock and we know our stuff. Think of being a Hyundai/Kia owner needing help for which you've gotten here before… and you go to ElantraClub.com and you get a 404-page not found… That one dollar could have kept it running so now there's no site and no help from our awesome members. Wouldn't that suck? Wouldn't you be kicking yourself for not kicking a buck or two our way?

Serously – think about it.

Donations

-------------------------------------------

DIY


This is another great underutilized part of our community. The DIY section is a place to create articles of things you've done – or even things you can do to your ride. Here is a short list of sections within the DIY group. Engine, Intake, Exhaust, Brakes, Suspension, Interior, Audio, Transmission, Painting, Maintenance, Electrical, Lighting, Miscellaneous and of course Videos.

How much oil goes in, how do I put new brakes on, what's the process to put in a strut bar? It's all there!

Have you done something you want the world to see…. EMAIL us and tell us and we'll add it to the DIY zone!!

Get cracking!

ElantraWiki


The club's wiki knowledgebase covers all aspects of the Elantra and to a lesser extent Hyundai and general automotive topics. Articles can be added to any category by any member and can be edited for both accuracy and added content. To add a new article to the wiki, click on a category and then click "New Article". Please help improve the EC community by participating in our wiki project.

So go wiki yourself now!

---------------------------------------

I'm done with the features but what you will notice is that there are a few words repeated within this post…..

Member · Community · Club


What I am getting at is this – by coming here – you are becoming a member of our community and part of a club.

Member – Someone who is a member of a club or community.

Community – A community is a virtual community that exists online and whose members enable its existence through taking part in membership ritual.

Club – A club is an association of two or more people united by a common interest or goal

We're asking all members to be one with ElantraClub. We love helping others out but were an online community. We're asking that we become not just another tab on firefox or a site you visit each day. We would love to have new topics posted each day and replies to each of those. We even have a thanks system. If someone posts stuff you like – just click the thanks button under their name.

So – please fill out your profile, update your information, become more active and help each other out. We're not just another site you visit. We're the elantraclub.com who is a online community with a great family of members.

Get rolling!

As always – if you need more information on features, and how-to about our community – Visit this link

Thanks for the info Vinnie. I am now on the map. Glad I read this first, I was thinking of asking Mitch exactly how to find other members in my area.
Now after looking at the few members in my local area, I was wondering about recruitment. I work in a hotel here in Niagara Falls and see a lot of Elantras both old and new. unfortunately I seldom get a chance to speak with the person. I was wondering if it would be appropriate to put a small flyer with a few details about the club on their windshield?

Since this topic was started, a lot has changed at the club. We've removed over 8,000 inactive members and (for the most part) have only kept our active ones. We are set up to be a club not just a site. Hopefully newer members will read Vinnie's original post and get a better understanding of what this community is all about and what we expect from members.
