Hi All,

As many of you know, we, the moderators, have been working behind the scenes to put in a few updates/upgrades into the forum to coincide with the introduction with the new generation of XV/Crosstreks. Some of the changes you might have noticed is the updated forum logo as well as prefixes in the Hybrid section.

Thanks to you and your responses to the poll question on pre-fixes (as well as Subaru's cooperation in release/model year dates), the next stage of the changes are now ready to roll out! We are introducing pre-fixes across all relevant forums! These pre-fixes will be based on the model year of the car rather than the other two choices we had (Generation and chassis type). We feel, like many of you, using model years would be easiest for people to identify with and since Subaru has synchronized their model years across the globe, it seems like it was the best choice over all.

As the site's Administrators roll out the changes over the next few days, please let us know of any inconsistencies you see or any problems you might be having with these prefixes! We ask everyone to select the prefix that is most representative of the subject when creating a thread. If you have older threads, please add a prefix so that it's easier for people to add their opinions on the subject.

So, what are the pre-fixes?

1. Short Description - "['12 - '17] ", Long Description - "Model Year 2012 to 2017"
2. Short Description - "['18+] ", Long Description - "Model Year 2018 and Newer"
3. Short Description - "[General] ", Long Description - "Applies to All Model Years"

The short description is what the viewer will see when looking at the forum view while the long description will be what's in the drop down when editing or creating a new thread.

When starting a new thread, you must pick one of the pre-fixes. The default pre-fix should be ['12 - '17] for now as most of the membership will have these models. As time goes on, the default will change to ['18+].

All of the existing forums will be affected except for the following as they are really model year independent -

Site News
SubaruXVforum Help Desk
New Member Introductions
Subaru XV of the Month Contest
Off Topic Discussion
Events and Meets
Other Subaru Talk
Non-Subaru Car Talk
The vendor forums


In conjunction with the new generation's introduction, we will be starting back up the Photo of the Month contest with the idea to gauge interest in the contest now that the user base has grown by both membership and models! The Photo of the Month contest will run until the end of the year and at that time, we will reassess the interest in the contest and what it will look like going forward.

Is there an instagram account ran by the moderators of the forum? That things like the photo of the month contest submissions/winners would go up on?

Unfortunately, no. Just the forum.
