  • New sections?

    I know you guys are still getting all settled in but I was wondering if a "Siku" and a "Other" section can be added to the Database area?

    Just a thought. Thanks.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I don't see any reason why not except the database takes almost half of the Garage home page.

    "Other" section there is, kind of. When you open the Database and scroll down to the bottom there's topics of different makes. There you or anyone can start their own database topic.

      Thanks, I'll add my other brand to that bottom section. I did notice that, the Database having the biggest section.....LOL

        Siku honestly was just an oversight, I meant to add them. But we are quickly running into having the database overwhelm the front page, I'd rather that not happen. So definitely the smaller makers should be posts at the bottom and we'll build a directory for those as we go. I will add Siku, but that should be really close to all. I want something for Tootsietoy / slush mold, but like some of the boards I don't expect it to be comprehensive, but it would be nice to have from an educational perspective I think. Are there any others I have grossly overlooked?
        The image file limits have been reset. We have over-limit warnings for the past 3 months and I've had to lower the image file limits. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I know I've mentioned many times before, but it is very important to downsize images - doesn't matter if they are hosted elsewhere or here. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The new limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

        Thank you for your understanding.

          Thanks Wes. Nothing else I can see. You are doing a great job.

            Since the Database box on the homepage does take up so much real estate, have you thought of moving down the screen a few places?

              I know it's hard to say who makes the list and who doesn't, but I think Kyosho (which isn't on the main page) had a lot more offerings than Konami (which is on the main page). I'm not saying it should be there, but between the two I'd go with Kyosho.

                Can you make the Database lists be on their own page, basically a single link on the front page that opens the lists of other links, either that or make the list of brands colapse, so you only see it if you click on something to expand it, I don't know if I'm using the right terms, but basically just asking if it could be like Swifty's where you don't see all the Database brands on the front page,.

                  I did ask about making a second forum page, for the database, but vbulletin doesn’t work that way, unfortunately.
                  I will try and find out if there is a mod we can do to make it collapsible.
