WOW!!!! I went on there to look at some of the new pictures and it seems like it turned into it's own discussion forum. I couldn't believe the amount of replys. Oh well, what can one say except, I read the rules when I posted my pictures. Don't want to step on any toes but rules are rules set up from our wonderful web master. Thanks for a great job. Keith

I actually think it is nice that people compliment the owner's cars.

If the webmaster has a problem with them then it's his job to take care of it. Since he doesn't seem to have a problem with the number of replies then neither should you. I got a lot of positive comments on my car which I really appreciate....

I feel it is nice to have vehicles commented on too, but it asked in the read before posting it states, " 1. DO NOT REPLY TO POSTS HERE. If you wish to discuss someone's vehicle displayed here use the "General Discussion" forum."

Thanks Glen for you comment.

Just because I haven't been caught speeding doesn't mean I not breaking the law. So, I should care. Keith

Thanks Glen again. I had remembered reading it but I guess I didn't check back after Mr. Shaw posted. I was just amazed today when I went to view the cars and saw haw many replies there where. I read the "read here before posting" again to make sure things hadn't changed but I guess he hadn't edited it to reflect his change of mind.
I really didn't post this comment to start any fires but I have seen other sites go under because of similar issues and I really, really, really, enjoy this site.
[u]BIG thanks to Mr. Shaw</u>. Keith

I like the comments as well, but I do find that if a person is restoring or updating the photo's on a regular basis the old posts do detract from the current picture. While anyone can look at the DATE posted on the post and figure it out. Your original picture (thread) could become quite cluttered over say the cource of a 5 year project.
Just thinking out loud, So please everyone, go to my photo and fill it with blushing comments while your still able to....good or bad...LOL:D[}:)]

Thanks for reminding me to revise the "read me first". I have modified it.

I thought the original policy made sense- why clutter the picture area with comments when we have this forum?? I agree that everyone appreciates comments on their car; just not where the rules say not to- and for good reason.

I suppose Mr. Shaw feels he's fighting a losing battle on that; there's probably always going to be comments left there.

I've always wondered about that. On another forum I read, there are several project threads; in fact they have a separate page for them. One of the most dedicated posters is a friend of mine that has threads about any resto he does; some are dozens and dozens of pages. He puts a lot of effort into writing details and posting literally hundreds of detailed pictures. These pictures are great how-tos, as well as inspiration for those doing, contemplating, or dreaming of tackling, the same thing.

These types of threads are well-received there, and I love following them when I can and learning. But here they don't seem that well-received by most; so I've stopped doing mine. When Gord or somebody does it, I always enjoy reading the progress; but it seems they may be putting a lot of work into the write-up for little interest...

Still, if anybody does so, you can bet I'll read it!![8D]
