The North America Subaru Forester Registry is up and running!

LINK
to the Registry. I'll be updating it often to add more info so stay tuned! UPDATE: The database still has a few glitches, which I'm working out. If you filled out the form, your info is there, even though you can't see it. I just need to change a few things in the form to get rid of the problem.

LINK to query table.

LINK to the form.

This is what the database would look like. LINK I'll also add query functions and statistical analyses as the database grows. Let me know what you think!

I don't want those G-men knowing about my Forester. First they keep track of your guns, then they know who has cars capable of surviving in the back country after the invasion forces land...a database scares me....lol.

sounds cool if you ask me... it not only helps you find similar year Foresters, but helps you find guys local to you for meet/assistance purposes.

Hopefully people list at least their hometown, and don't vague it up with just "Ohio" or something.

It would be useful to sort by city.

Also, maybe a column to select if you Foz is stock/tuner/off road beast. That way those with the same mod interest could sort for those that share that specific interest.

Just my .02

Garbage in, garbage out.

List a goofy location (or a goofy anything else) and you get no benefit from being there in the first place. And you get a reputation for being goofy.

The form will contain "City" and "State" fields, both of which will be required to continue to the rest of the form.

I'm using mostly check boxes and multiple choice questions, so "goofiness" should be limited. :)

Would anyone be opposed to listing their VIN as a means of tracking the vehicles? For privacy reasons, I can easily change the settings within the database, so the VIN #s are not publicly visible.

I certainly don't mind exhibiting it on my Forester, since that's where it is. I'm not a privacy freak. But I don't see how it would serve a useful purpose here.
