Idea for Dub Projects section
« on: 09 December 2007, 10:21 »
I noticed that all the topics in the Dub Projects section are locked. Is it possible to make a child board for each of the guys that post there so that we can comment on the projects? I just feel that they are taking the effort to post up their projects and Im sure they would appreciate it if we were able to comment; make suggestions or even give ideas.

I agree you dont want the actual topic crowded with comments etc so a section to one side where people can comment would be great.

JV? Mods. Is this possible?

They aren't locked for me. They used to be, but anyone has been able to reply for a while now.

As for the comments, i'd rather none were made in the actual project thread. I think the "dubrides" section was partly made to allow people to stick up pics and have other people comment on them.  :smiley:

really. still locked for me..... or maybe i should check again. although would it not be nice for every project thread to have its own child board where people can comment?

Possibly, but it would most probably require a hell of a lot of time for JV or any other admin to create them all and it would probably take up an unnecessary amount of space on the server i would imagine.

It's a fair comment Mike. The idea was that we didn't want pages of 'junk' within each project thread, so it's kind of long term projects go in that section, more chilled stuff that you want feedback on goes in dub rides. It would take ages to sort out sub-boards so I don't think I am up for that! :)

Mew - they only aren't locked for you because you have a section in there - it was the simplest way to sort it. :)

just a thought... on my local car site we have the "projects" section and then people post up a thread in the car chat saying...

"this is my car in the project section, please add comments and opinions here" and put a link up to the actual project thread.. seems to work quite well..

mk3 16v 5dr Gti,mintex extreme pads,drilled/grooved discs,lowered,cat back powerflow system,omp panel filter with modified airbox,debadged grill, started prep for spraying, lots to come :D

^^^^ there's nothing to stop people doing that at the moment.

ie my project section is just that, if i want opinions i'll post a link to it in the dub-rides section. no-one comments on my car anyway though! :laugh:
