Get a free EcoModder decal (as reward for doing an easy favour)
 
http://ecomodder.com/imgs/decal-blackfly.jpgFrom: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...-page-239.html

Anybody interested in a free EM decal or two in return for doing something really easy? Something you already do lots of?

Tim (daox) and I are starting a dedicated forum for a new car. We'd like to jump start it (the new forum, not the car) by inviting members from here to make posts over there. The forum is about a new economy car, so the subject matter isn't a stretch -- no acting required! (I can see this vehicle being genuinely interesting to lots of people.)

Specifics...
  • We were thinking: make N posts on the new site, and we'll send you a decal. Make N*1.75 posts and we'll send you a pair. How about N=25.
  • We only ask that your posts/threads be somewhat thoughtful, not just the "me too!" variety. (Though you're welcome to make "me too!" posts if you don't count them towards N.)
  • And we ask that you space out your posts over the course of 3 or 4 weeks, rather than blowing the whole wad on your first day.
Interested?

We would definitely appreciate the help.

Post in this thread to put up your hand. Tim or I will PM you the details. (Keeping things secret until we're ready to go next week.)

I wouldn't mind having the sticker(s) but nobody would ever see them unless they walk into my driveway to look! But I'd make real posts- well, as real as any of my posts are. :rolleyes:

MetroMPG 02-13-2014 04:44 PM

Mr Lee, that's fine with me.

And your posts are some of the most real around here! :D

MetroMPG 02-13-2014 04:45 PM

Also: if we get a whole pile of takers, we're going to stagger it out somewhat so we don't have a huge flurry of activity all at once, and then... crickets.

Frank Lee 02-13-2014 04:47 PM

Up until last night, I hadn't started any of my vehicles since Thanksgiving!

MetroMPG 02-13-2014 04:50 PM

Not many people see my EcoModder decals, either. Not quite as little as that, though ... New Years for me.

Consider me posted, or something like that.

Apprehensive about the details though. A forum for a new car will most likely be a forum about a car I know absolutely nothing about.
I suspect you want content on your new site, but it needs to have some quality and relevance. I cannot promise in advance that I can supply those, especially about yet unknown vehicles.

So I endorse your plan, but am wary to sell my soul to an undefined adventure just to obtain some free stickers.
In hindsight I should have chosen my username with greater care ;)

MetroMPG 02-13-2014 05:07 PM

I predict you will know this car better than many on EcoModder, so no soul-selling is required.

(Though it has been noted what you'll consider doing for a pair of stickers... :D )

Insight for life 02-13-2014 05:24 PM

I'm in. Anything for you guys!

ssnsvibe09 02-13-2014 05:37 PM

Not much of an ecomodder, but slowly climbing the ranks of hypermiller. lol.. Count me, sometimes I have mentioned something worth reading about.

sheepdog 44 02-13-2014 05:52 PM

I'm in.......Me Too! :)

darcane 02-13-2014 06:00 PM

What the heck, I'll give it a go.

I figure if it turns out to be a car I have no interest in, neither of us are out anything.

vskid3 02-13-2014 06:25 PM

I'm in. I've wanted a sticker forever, just never felt like paying for one.:o

I10 coming to north america?

MetroMPG 02-13-2014 06:41 PM

Excellent. Thanks, guys. That's our first line, then.

We're happy to get more hand-raisers, but we'll stagger the participation of the next bunch (if there is a next bunch) by a few weeks to keep things on a low boil for a while longer.

I have no idea. But that's not the one!

pgfpro 02-13-2014 07:10 PM

I'm in!!! :)

sarguy01 02-13-2014 08:23 PM

I'm in.

RobbMeeX 02-13-2014 09:00 PM

In

mechman600 02-13-2014 10:24 PM

I already have stickers! I will donate them to those in greatest "need". But I'm in.
I'm scared....what if I don't like the car?:D

jeff88 02-13-2014 10:33 PM

With the same reservations as others, I don't mind getting first look (or second).

MetroMPG 02-13-2014 10:40 PM

Yay!

We could use some more Canadians. (Yes, a hint.) Europeans and Americans still welcome with open arms. (Americans may be a little bit disappointed when they get the whole story, though hope springs eternal.)

Fear not! I still like the Mirage's superior efficient design specs, but what this competitor announced today is pretty remarkable. I don't want to over-sell it.

That amount of hinting should be enough for anyone to figure this out in a few minutes with your favourite search motor.

mechman600 02-13-2014 10:48 PM

OOOO...I found out about this the other day when I was on a certain American, er...Japanese...no wait Chinese? auto manufacturer's website. Honestly, I think it looks 1000X better than the Mirage, going by looks alone of course.

deejaaa 02-13-2014 10:51 PM

lots of lookers...
 
there will be lots to see my stickers. i drive the interstate. might give them the reason why i drive so sensible. the car on the other hand, i am interested. mine won't last forever and will need to replaced eventually although it looks like i won't have the option to buy after all.

2000neon 02-14-2014 12:01 AM

Well I'm canadian, and I'm in!

I'm just heading south on vacation tomorrow, but once I'm back and the forum has the ball rolling you can count me in.

poomanchu 02-14-2014 12:42 AM

Need someone for batch 3? xD I'm in if you need need another

markweatherill 02-14-2014 05:26 AM

I'd be happy to!

(I used to wonder, when a new magazine or newspaper launched, where the letters on the first issue's letters page came from?

MetroMPG 02-14-2014 08:18 AM

^ Funny, that. :D

You'll be familiar with the current car, too, Mark.

3rd shift filling up! Thanks, guys.

I think I figured it out, here is an obscure hint:

Agreed on the looks. (Though not 1000X -- come on, let's not exaggerate! Maybe 20X.)

Mirage looks better to the wind though: @ 0.28 (North American spec) vs. 0.315 for the mystery dog, er, car.

WD40 02-14-2014 09:19 AM

Count me in. I've always wanted a sticker or 2 to help advertise the cause, and the site of course.
I'm just way to cheap to pay.
Sorry:(

I'm in. Of course I want the sticker, lol, but I always find something useful in the sister forums- ecorenovator, and the Mirage forum.

2015 Nissan Micra ... Micra-Forum.com
 
http://micra-forum.com/imgs/2015-nissan-micra-29-s.jpg

The 2015 model year Nissan Micra will go on sale this spring... in Canada.

It may be Nissan's most efficient ICE car, but if so, not significantly more than the Versa sedan or Versa Note, because they share the same 1.6L engine and tranmissions (except CVT). Official fuel economy figures haven't been released yet, but I did some homework and have posted reasonable estimates: 2015 Nissan Micra fuel economy / mileage / mpg (NRCAN, EPA)

The car's trump card is its shockingly low price: $9998 for the base car (5-speed, no air conditioning). That's ~$2k+ below the next cheapest, Chevy Spark & Mitsubishi Mirage.

There are no official plans for US sales. But there's always speculation.

So! Volunteers, feel free to head over to www.Micra-Forum.com - we've started posting threads. Feel free to join in. I divided you into three shifts, staggered by 2 weeks:

1) for the next ~30 days (to approx. Mar. 20)

2) Mar 3: 30 days to approx Apr. 3

Of course, you can join & post whenever you like, and are welcome to make more than "N" posts. To claim your decal(s), just PM me with your name & mailing address at the end of your 30 days.

Thanks again, everybody.
