    I know you guys are working super hard to get this all together, and the site looks better every time I visit :) so I'm hoping I'm not stepping on any toes by making a suggestion for the website.

    Can we add either a Euro section or a BMW, Mercedes, and maybe a VW section to the list of manufacturer's under the "Car Info" section?

    Cheers!

    The chat box on the main page, perhaps collapsible so people don't have to see it that don't want to.

    Also, am I blind, or is multi-quote disabled?

    I have also been having some issues with the chat box. I'll hop onto my PC and I'll see the same posts as last time, but I'll get on my phone and see that people have posted in it. I'll post on my phone, and not see it on my pc and vice versa.

    Is it possible to land to the first unread post in the tread instead of opening thread in the very beginning?

    Thanks,

    When I click "new posts", it takes me to the first new post. I'll try it again to make sure it's working right though.

    I didn't get any registration email, even in the spam folder, so now every time when I post it ask me some questions. How to reconfirm registration?

    thanks for the suggestion Ryan! I've added some new sections for Euro stuff!

    Multi-quote isn't a feature we currently have, but i'll look into seeing if its possible with this platform. So far, i've been manually opening the quote in a new tab, then pasting it with my reply in the original tab.

    As for the Chatbox issue, its pulling posts from just a flat txt file and being displayed via Jquery. So, perhaps clearing your browsers cache on the PC might help? Its also possible that there's just a compatibility issue with the app and the browser your PC or Phone uses. :\

    Yep, I believe Greg is right. However, I'm not seeing that new posts functionality anymore after rebuilding the site from an issue the other day. By default, it should be displaying the newest posts -> oldest. I'm not sure if its possible to have it keep track of unread posts as well. If I find anything out, I'll let ya know!

    This was probably due to how we had mail settings configured for new registrations. I've just updated them about an hour ago, so things should be working normally now. Sorry for the troubles, let me know if you still have issues !

    I refresh the cache, load the chat box, and see new posts, but then it instantly flashes back to old ones.
    I used cbox.ws when I had my own forum, it worked great and I never had issues with it. Easy as pasting in some code they give you. I'd even be willing to pitch in a bit of money as the premium version costs $20/year.

    I think there should be a size limit on signature pictures. A bit taller than Greg's is fine, but much bigger and it becomes too distracting/takes up too much space on the page, in my opinion. Anyone agree? I don't think width is really an issue.

    What this ol' thing? Lol plz mod my sig as deemed appropriate

    Suggestion. If someone does create a situation were the only solution is banning
    It should be like this.

    " you have brought great dishonour to yourself"
    And one option, a button

    " perform seppuku "

    And then they are really banning themselves.

    I can only see signature images when I'm signed out. Also mine is huge. tried shrinking it, but quality just gets worse...
