    Smile United Kingdom mp3car team?

    Just wondered how many people from the UK actually use this forum, doesnt mean there the only ones with mp3cars but wiill be nice to get an idea!

    I'm tempted to setup a mp3car uk website, is there one already or would it be the first?

    seems sensible as mp3car is becoming overcrowded and bloated...
    reminds me of a certain expensive OS!

    I suggested starting a uk portal with example cars and a parts supply list. I have pletny of webspace if someone would be willing to help in development - i'm not a great webspace coder. I'm after scripts to allow the addition of example cars, kinda like mp3car. If anyone knows a way to allow a custom login to upload html and images then I'd be more than willing to use it!

    Cheers

    go for it, there are already plenty of uk car audio sites so an mp3 car would be really good! i hope to get my system done soon.

    Hi,

    I've already started work ona UK portal www.mp3cars.co.uk

    I'd be grateful for any help ...

    I host the site myself so webspace/bandwidth is no issue

    A quick tip webassist - raise the fps in swish to 25 frames per second - 12 just looks very slow!

    Cheers - are you gonna write the scripts yourself or use ready made?

    I'm gonna write them all myself ... What features would you like on the site? I don't want to step on MP3Car.com too much.

    If anyone has any UK/European links for kit can they let me know??

    I'll try to have a mock site up ASAP - Anyone want to help run/design the site??

    ahhh... trying to give my austmp3car.tk site a run for its money eh? Im currently re-writing the site in PHP/mySQL (the current site is totally static HTML ) and adding some nice new features to boot... (link submission forms/member searching/better news system/FAQ/tutes/etc/etc/something else)....

    expect it soonish...... well not all the above features at once, all in good time...

    well when u UK guys get your act together we can be affiliate sites to each other!!! eh?!


    probably not a bad idea at all.... like jose said, mp3car.com is fast becoming the M$ of websites!!! splitting it up into 'regions' would make it easier to manage..... keep news/members local to each other, and might help with language barriers, etc..... and we aint treading on mp3car.com's toes either...
    Project - GAME OVER :(
