    Post How about this...

    how about a an icon for each user that displays their progess on building an mp3car?

    I think it would be useful for everyone, newbies especially, if you knew the guy giving you advice actually had done this before.

    There could be icons for
    • interested
    • Planning/researching/buying parts
    • Construction in progress
    • and system completed (or in the car and working, at least


    I thought I would throw that out there, because I have often wondered how many of the registered users have actual, working computers in their vehicles.

    if moon allowed images in sig's then u could link to a set of icons. but that opens the floodgates to image sig's with i hate! (and most ppl do!).


    in UBB can u have more member types rather than Junior/Member/Administrator? if you can maybe people could be classed like that..?

    Three things

    1) What do these member types mean? I used to be a junior member, and now I'm a member and have no idea why.

    2) My only objection to a progress bar type thing, would be it's not a very accuate description of how good you are. No offence ment to any members of this board, but you could have a situation where a school kid with a very simple setup which is finish, would have a higher rating than a experianced computer systems engineer, who is just starting to build his system.

    3) I think a better solution might be to pay more attention to the member rating and encorage people to rate each other more.

    Please note I do not think any less of posts placed by members who are still at school. If fact I admire them.

    Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)

    you are a junior member until you reach 25 posts (i think its 25, but I know it has to do with the # of posts)

    I agree with the points you guys have made.

    Moon is GOD. All hail the Moon! Incidentally, since this is the premier carplayer site on the net, could we get a "Where are they now" type deal about Moon? Who is he? What does he do? How does he pay for such a fantastic site?
    That type of thing. I've seen all of a handful of posts from him. Would just like to know more about the dude who started all this...

    Along the line of the % complete progress bar in signatures, we could use something like:

    [====== ] 60% complete. Currently building.

    I dunno, just a thought.

    I like that idea, but it would be hard to get everyone to adopt it, so I'll start (with my next post)
