Contributions improved (and pink link added)

As you may know, we accept and welcome post contributions here at SaabsUnited. There may not be any new Saab cars built, but there are still many Saab cars, enthusiasts and clubs out there. And we want to read about your Saab experiences here at SaabsUnited.

After having spent some time this Christmas on the user base of SaabsUnited, I can tell you that we now have almost exactly 6 000 registered users. And they have all been “upgraded” from subscribers to contributors. Any new users are also automatically set to contributors.

So everyone registered here at SaabsUnited can now (easily) contribute with posts.

When a new post is submitted by a user, an email is sent to the moderators of SaabsUnited. We can then review the post and publish it, or add comments and send it back for (eventual) rewrite. This review system, with the emails, is brand new and will surely improve our work (and speed up the process for new posts).

I have also added a permanent page about the contribution system with a pink link in the top menu of SaabsUnited. Hopefully this will make it easier for our visitors and users to contribute. Oh, and there’s a thought behind the pink link. Click it and you’ll see. 😉

Last but not least, we still have our regular SaabsUnited editors. Not all of them are as active as before – and there aren’t as many new Saab news nowadays – but several of them still contribute (both here and in other ways), which is much appreciated!

Feel free to let us know in the comments below if there’s anything else that we can do to improve the contribution system here at SaabsUnited. And do contribute with your Saab posts here!

Contribute to SaabsUnited!

SaabsUnited is now managed by Svenska Saabklubben, the Swedish Saab Club, a non-profit organization since 1976 with more than 3 000 members (of which 10 % are international members). We intend to maintain the archive and history of SaabsUnited, as well as improve and expand SaabsUnited with new posts and Saab relevant content.

In the past, SaabsUnited has primarily consisted of posts by certain authors. They have done an excellent job with the site and they are all more than welcome to continue contributing here. Separate information has been sent out to them as well.

But now we need your help. All of you Saab enthusiasts, clubs and alike. We want to read about your Saab cars, projects, meet ups, thoughts and adventures. We want to see your pictures and view your videos. The Saab community is still strong, let’s show it here at SaabsUnited!
