go look at the new sticky thread at top of the section, hopefully the now added red text will explain a bit more.

This is going to be wonderful when people get used to it, it means we will have a quick easy database of each panda and its life can be all seen easy as the members update their threads

Re: Forum rules....

there is a hyper link which is the blue writing under each picture in the sticky thread, which will be the name of the persons car. You discuss the thread on the members motors thread.

Re: Forum rules....

Some people have more than 1... does that mean more that 1 MM thread. Does it have to be linked to the MM thread too. Most of us don't have one... because we ta;k about them in panda section, which makes perfect sense. MM is good for modifiers, but us lot dont nmeed to tell the whole forum we changed a wheel bearing. Can it go to Member gallery if no MM thread is created? then if we do a MM thread PM a mod to get it changed?

Re: Forum rules....

members motors is just that for members motors, dont have to be modified threads, can be a record of the cars life from 50 quid ebay panda to totaly restored, or just pics of every where the panda goes.

some panda lot have done theirs, some others have pmed me saying its great idea and are doing their threads when they have time

Re: Forum rules....

Yes. But we'd still like the main sticky thread just to keep them all nicely listed in one place.

Now if you were to ask me could we automate the sticky to skim through all "Panda" tagged MM threads then copy the first image found and paste it in .., yes, that is possible. However it wouldnt help us get the nicest image for the gallery etc etc...

In anycase, I can see a use for prefixes there for future projects, so it is now enabled.

However this doesnt affect the rulings we have at present

So how do we become aware of changes to their Panda if we don't always go over to their MM page? This is the biggest disadvantage of the system your suggesting. In the past a thread would pop up in the Panda section in bold to tell us there is something that you've not read. So how will we become aware of progress updates to cars now?

Can I get this straight. Panda section is now ONLY for problem threads and all general Panda chit chat needs to go in MM? It just dosen't make sence. Will make Classic Panda section redundant
Thanks purple haze thanked for this post

same way you find them punto section posts you always posting in

seems some people cant find their own threads in panda section to ad updates too either, this should help them loads, so they can keep it all to one thread, instead of a new one every time they get a new part

So what will the point of the Classic Panda section be then? What Threads we suppost to have if it can't be about our car(s)

The impending doom of the Classic Panda section
