||The BAMD Forum is the heart of
the website. All registered BAMD drivers can use it to share ideas, find out who's doing
what, request technical advice, buy or sell parts, or just say hello. It's not intended to
take the place of larger forums like miata.net, but if you want to know what's going on
locally, this is the place.
||Help with using the BAMD forum
and other website features is available wherever you see the question mark button. If
you're already familiar with forum posting and private messages, feel free to jump right
in. If you have a question, like how to post a picture or delete a post, you can usually
find the answer on the help page. But feel free to email the webmaster any time you need
||Search the BAMD forums. This
feature lets you enter a word or phrase and finds the best matches from all posts in the
forum. It works best if you enter only key words, and it works better with shorter words,
so it helps to break up compound words such as "rollbar" and "powdercoating". You'll
find more matches, for example, using "roll bar" and "powder coating", even if the
poster combined them into one word.
||Private Messages can be sent
to any BAMD driver by selecting the Private messages page below the Forum menu tab, or clicking the PM icon
on the main forum page. There's no limit on the number of PMs you can send and receive. The PM icon will be
highlighted with a red border if someone has sent you a PM, and you can also choose to be
notified by email when you've received a new PM.
||Profiles of BAMD drivers can
be viewed by selecting the BAMD Roster page below the Forum menu tab, or clicking a login name in the
forum, if the driver has made his or her profile public. You can modify your own profile by clicking the profile
icon on the main forum page. Your profile page has several options for privacy settings, and for changing how the
forum works for you. It also gives you access to your personal Miata page.
||Miata photos and information
about your car can be posted on the website for all BAMD drivers to see. BAMD driver pages
can be viewed by selecting the Miata photo gallery page below the Our Miatas menu tab. Set up your own
page by clicking the Add a New Page button at the bottom of the BAMD Miatas page.
You'll find instructions there for creating your page. It's pretty simple.
||Photos and accounts of early BAMD
group drives, tech sessions, and other events were posted to the website during the first few
years, and you can view these by selecting the Event photo gallery page below the Events menu tab.
We hope this gives you some idea of the type of events BAMD puts on.
Although we no longer update this page on our website, BAMD has a Facebook page where photos
and comments on more recent events can be posted.
||Links to useful websites are
available by selecting the Links page below the BAMD menu tab. We have links to vendors,
track day organizations, and helpful miata.net pages. We're always looking to add links
that will help out BAMD drivers, so feel free to ask for more.
||A roster of all active BAMD
drivers is available by selecting the BAMD roster page below the Forum menu tab, or clicking the roster icon
on the main Forum page. The roster displays login names and any other information authorized by each driver,
and it contains a link to each driver's profile, if authorized, and each driver's Miata page, if the
driver has set one up. From this page you can PM any driver in the roster.
||Blogs by BAMD drivers can be
viewed by clicking the Blogs menu tab. BAMD drivers have blogged
about everything from welding classes to engine rebuilds. BAMD registered drivers can add
their own comments to any of the blog entries, and if you're so inclined, feel free to
start a blog of your own. As long as it's Miata-related, there's no limit to the topics
you can write about.
||Articles about Miatas have been
written on subjects ranging from timing belt replacement, to track day preparation, to
back road driving techniques. We have mostly technical articles, but we also have essays
about driving and motorsports competition. Anyone can submit a Miata-related article to
||We hope this gives you some idea of
what the BAMD website provides, and what BAMD is all about. We think the site is pretty
easy to navigate, and we're only an email away if you have any questions or
