    Default Newbie with a few newbie-like questions

    Hello all, I'm in Cincinnati and my profile is up to date.

    Due to some recent mechanical issues with my Silverado and a increasingly large amount of rust; I have a feeling I will be very active on this forum.

    Thought I am not new to message boards, the layout here is a bit different than I am used to.

    A few questions to make sure I'm a pleasure and not a pest!

    1. How do I make a "My Garage" entry? Is the intend here to be like a "Build Thread" where I can post continuous updates while not jamming other forum areas?
    2. Are there limited areas of the forum that I can post in until I am no longer a "Newbie"? Are the milestones/requirements to achieve non-newbie status provided somewhere?

    Welcome to the G M T C ! I'm not sure about "My Garage" feature but the "Blog" feature could be used for "Build Threads". I'm sure you will get more infio' as more folks check in and say hello.

    Welcome to the site! The "My Garage" feature sort of can be used to display the current state of your vehicle. When you do maintenance, repair, or modification you can showcase it in the Garage. Like @retired2001 stated, the blogs are the best way to document the evolution of your truck! It's a great tool that many of us used for that particular reason (used it to document the evolution of my truck, and issues I ran into along the way).

    As far as non-new places, there are only a few. They are only blocked off by the number of posts you've made on GMTC. Aside from that, you'll have full access to the whole site! Good luck, and great havin ya on board!


    Sorry folks, looks like the blogging feature was deactivated. If anybody else has an idea, I'd love to hear it as well! Here's the link about the deactivation:
