    I'll drink to that! I spend so much time on this site, and have less than no interest in seeing it become FACED. It would drive me away.

    I'm pretty happy with Cadtutor the way it is, but a facelift would be cool. Add me to the list who hates Facebook/Twitter, so if either of them get incorporated into Cadtutor, please make it an option that can be disabled in user preferences, similar to Avatars and Signatures.

    I too am relatively happy with the site as is. Granted, a facelift would be refreshing. I use Facebook, not Twitter, but to be able to incorporate those social media sites might be a good addition but like nestly said, it should be something that can be disabled in each user's preferences.

    I like CADTutor as it is.

    I've implemented Facebook and Google+ at my own forum. It gives us more options to drive traffic and potential members to our site. It makes it easy to Like or +1 an interesting thread for the world to see. If members don't want to use it, they don't have to; but it's there for those that do.

    I like the gallery and file sharing ideas.

    I hate Twitter.

    I would echo Lee Roy's position on social networking integration. I haven't gotten into FaceBook but I participate in Google+, also LinkedIn and like Lee Roy I hate Twitter although I do use it to a limited extent.

    Regarding a gallery and related repositories for models and/or drawings have you considered (or is it worth considering) a collaborative effort with an established outlet. I'm thinking of something like GrabCAD, which has over 250,000 members. Although it is intended for more strictly a mechanical crowd. I have no affiliation with GrabCAD but I think it's a great site, a little sparse on the discussions but that is where a collaboration could benefit both. If it's worth pursuing let Hardi Meybaum know I sent you to them, I'm sure that will help your chances.

    I'm not on here much anymore since my career change, but I too have reservations about a Facebook/Twitter/other social media link. Maybe having that as an option would be ok, if it's not a requirement. One of my sons-in-law is an iphone/android programmer, and he has a blog page that's linked to his twitter account which is linked to his facebook page, which is linked to his google+, and so on. He posts on any one of those, and it goes to all of them at the same time. When someone replies to him on one of them, it shows up on all of them. It just all seems like too much to me. I use facebook on a daily basis for friends and family, but have always kept professional contacts separate (with a few exceptions). I've never seen the point in twitter.
