Re: project section

the description for members motors is "a place to show off your car" (or something like that)

so people who have just bought a car/ added something can take photo's and get C&C's...

the projects section would be more so people can see how the car is coming on... i.e if "joe bloggs" just bought a set of alloys and wanted to show them off, this would go in the members motors section...

but on the other hand if he had designed and built a boot install or anyother kind of modification that took more than bolting on this would go in the projects section so people can see how it's going on.. add updates and seek advice.

Re: project section

I treat my MM thread as a blog. I wouldn't call my Sei a project as I'm not stripped and rebuilding stuff etc, but it is WIP. Maybe a 'blog' section?

Bit like on a model racing forum I frequent, have their own blog section, a'la:

Re: project section

Sounds like a good plan, if you could make it so that members can only start 1 thread per car in the 'projects forum' or whatever it ends up being called then you would always just add to that like col7104 has in MM. Thus anything you have done you can update it in projects as you go, when you finish whatever job your doing you'd post in MM the result.
That in turn would mean eventually the MM would turn into a whole load of finished pics for people to check out and reply to and your cars progress and build up pics would be available in your project thread and you could go check them out if your interested in a particular 'project'. This would clean out the ones you get that are hello i drive a ...... here it is type threads which really annoy me, not trying to be off about it but we all know what standard cars look like, i'm too interested that joe bloggs has a standard punto.. Its nice for him but its nothing i haven't seen before if you get me. If you get a new car, then you can have a new project thread to start.

Re: project section

that i think could work MM for showcasing finished articles or finished latest bits done, and projects for the making of the latest bits done etc

Re: project section

that what i said a few posts back, one thread per car. then the ones going at speed (dunc's) would be at the top purly due to the replies it gets.

i think a project sub section in the mm is a must! and until it gets used more you could call it dunc's sub forum lol

Re: project section

There must be lots of people on here doing projects other than dunc, I just think that dunc seems better at remembering to take pics while he goes along. I certainly know everytime i do something i suddenly realise when i finish that i should have taken pics etc. Might encourage people to start dunc stylee threads though having the project section..

Another plus that no-one has mentioned is if you were buying a car of a FF member as you would be able to go see the cars build-up and get a real idea of its history with its previous owner, and possibly be able to have the thread swaped onto your account so you could carry on from where the previous owner left off. Would be interesting for people like urchin who's just bought custards tub or fingers99 whos now got imola of aaron.
You could also but a link to your project on any advert of your car, it'd demonstrate how much you care for your car.

Re: project section

Never even considerd the possibility of it adding to a cars value blu, good point, really would look good to a prospective buyer to have a look over the thread, would show the quality of build. I have a project, and if i were to put it anywhere, it would be in a projects section!

Re: project section

Wouldn't a blog section be better?

Re: project section

May be an idea to guage if its worth making a whole section dedicated to projects, by seeing how well used the blog section would be for projects first at least, so thats a decent idea imo

Re: project section

There's some quite snazzy blog plug ins that can integrate in the gallery and the forum, so could be an ideal solution .... let's see what the others think ....

Re: project section

Ok, it's been given the green - I'll try and set it up this weekend, but my net connection is playing up (if it fixes itself in the next hour or so I'll have it by end of day).

Its a proper blog system, so you add dated entries, photos, etc .... people can of course leave comments (which you moderate yourself).

Coming very soon
