    Thumbs up Posting your ride, please read!

    So, you wanna post a pic of your ride? Go for it. We wanna see it. Just a few rules.

    1) Max image size = 640x480
    2) Picture Resolution = Any (but please resize to 640x480)
    2) Color Depth = Any
    3) Compression/format = JPEG or JPG preferred

    You can either supply a link to your picts from other sites within the message. Or, you can also attach a file to the end of separate messages.

    To post more than one pic of your car, submit one message and then post the rest as REPLIES to your original message.

    3) Give us good descriptions! We need to know what we're looking at.

    4) JPG images will show up in the messages. Other formats will only show up as "click to see" links.
    Mike

    I'd suggest only a few good photos. Like a couple of the outside and a couple of the inside (if you can get a wide angle view of the inside with good lighting). Maybe one at speed doing something special (autoX or rally) Some people take a dozen pics at the same angle or bodypart and try to pass them off as different. How many photos do you really need??? Not just one of the front quarter up close then farther away, then real far away. Take a look at some car mags and see what those photographers are doing. They go for different angles and body parts.

    Don't forget extra points for Hotties on, in, or near the car....
    or as Tomohawk suggested: "Maybe one at speed doing something special..."
    Female members may take "Hotties" to be male for their posts...gotta keep it fair for the ladies...

    What would a guy 'hotty' look like, or be doing with/on a car, bicep curls using the bumper?

    Now don't be modest. Maybe a Tom Seleck look a like. Hawaian shirt, shades, jaunty pose, something like this maybe:

    If you want it done right then do it yourself.

    Still need to determine what you'll have this person doing with or on a car. Maybe some ladies can chime in on this one?

    How about a cup o tea?

    It was a quote from you-don't you know what you had in mind...
    The only exclusion would be anything that could leave a snailtrail, or resemble Walter Mathau neked(Vicky)!

    Probably just do the same as what females do, stand next to it and look nice.

    I thought you meant to strip halfway naked, hose yourself with oil, and lay on the hood...

    What is it to you? Do you have a point? There's no expiration on information.

    However, the original directions are no longer pertinent information. We are no longer restricted to 640x480, and we can now attach mutliple pictures per post. Old information sometimes loses it's relevance. Our web site is much more advanced now than it was 4 years ago.

    You mean some information has lost its relavance for you. And being an 'advanced web site' has nothing to do with how relavant information is.

    No. Mike's instructions are no longer relevant to the operation of this website. Things are different now. Live in the present. Info on Z-repair that is 4 years old is probably still great stuff. This is not.

    All I'm going to say on that. Feel free to be as obstinate as you like.

    Bye.

    Mark,

    For what it's worth, I find that the "ignore list" feature of this site can be quite useful.

    Never used it before. I should explore more of the site features. Thanks.

    Ooooooops, I think I broke this rule

    Some of the posts seem too old to edit - is there any other way to change those images to lower resolution? Although most of them seem to have been scaled by the system on import, just not down as far as 640x480.

    D'oh

    I suppose reading the whole thread first would help, wouldn't it

    Maybe the thread should be deleted - or at least unstickied. Since normally in a rules sticky you only have to read the first post.

    Ha, yes these rules have changed quite a bit since 2001. 13 years of technology improvements and growth of the site, we can now allow much larger images and image types. I'll probably delete this thread. Thanks for bringing it to my attention Rick.

    PS: I just "unstuck" it so the thread should fall into the depths of time.
