I get at LEAST 4-10 emails and IMs a week about this, so Ill just start directing people here.
The VWVortex is ONE of MANY sites run by the Vortex Media Group.
4 of them have shared databases. VWVortex, Mwerks, Speedarena and Triplezoom. The shared databases consist of
The User Database. If you have a Vortex ID, it works on all 4 of those sites.
the ENTIRE COMMUNITY forums. (Car Lounge, et al)
the ENTIRE Help and Suggestions forums. (Suggestion box, Help forum)
here is an example of how the database works:
http://forums.mwerks.com/zerothread?id=1181921
http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1181921
http://forums.triplezoom.com/zerothread?id=1181921
http://forums.speedarena.com/zerothread?id=1181921
all the same topic on 4 different sites
Speedarena's forums are globally shared on the forums too. Those are the racing forums you see at the main page.
Triplezoom is the new Mazda site
Mwerks is the BMW site
and VWVortex is... well its the VW site

So, go take a look around
the Vortex offers alot more than just VWs! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

well, this explains the worshipping of the e30, e36 m3, and new mazda 3 and 6 that goes on in the car lounge!
thanks for explaining that all though....this is how i always thought it worked, but it's good to finally know for sure!

It's because the person replying to the topic is posting from Mwerks.

either that or its because you made a post in one of the other forums.
They all come together in your Topic Notifications.

Good thinking... someone should sticky this or at least add it to a FAQ somewhere
.
Where does swedespeed come in to play? I thought that was in the Vortex 'family' too... ???

This isnt official word from me at all, but I THINK Swedespeed (the Volvo site) and Subdriven (the Subaru site) will be combined with the database soon.
Dont take my word on in though. I just think thats in the plans.

OK, heres one. Why does MWerks feel so deserted? There are practically no threads going on in any of the BWM model subforums.
If MWerks was an old texan town, there'd be tumbleweed rolling around...

Because everyone goes in there and doesn't see any threads. Then they don't post because of that. We need folks to not be afraid to start a topic. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

So...
If VMG is VW, BMW, Mazda, along with Subaru and Volvo, then why is the Turbo Mopar Minivan Lounge?

I figured it out a while ago with some of the cross-posts that linked to other threads that were on triplezoom and such. But all the other forums fonts just look wrong when compared to vortex..
