Okay, so you've see 'em all day as I've been "playing" and so here's the way it works: If you have a Viper Owner Profile for a Viper you have owned or own, then you can select a thumbnail to be used for a "post icon" and it will be displayed in each of your posts with a link to your Viper Profile. The icons appear in the upper right corner of a post and are "floating", so text wrap by them if there is that much text.

You can change your icon simply by selecting the "post icon" link under the thumbnail of the image you want to use on your Owner Profile (you can get to your owner profile by clicking on the MY VIPER link under your name to the left or if you already have an icon just by clicking on the icon).

I wrote a script to pick up the default image for everyone who has one, so we already have alot of icons being used.

As always, I'd like your feedback; I thought this would be a fun way to link people's car profiles to their posts. Another possible addition would be a preview of the last photo a user has uploaded, but that might be a bit much.

I think it's very cool.:thumb: I find myself looking at the members pics a lot more now that the little thumbnail is up there ready to click on.

I imagine we'll hear some "elitist" comments though. /images/graemlins/blah /images/graemlins/blah

Well, I didn't really intend for it to be used to put up pictures of other cars. I won't police who is or isn't an owner, but the concept of the Owners Area is a place where people can show off their Vipers (either ones they owned or ones they have owned); this isn't the Viper Owners website, so I don't think its unreasonable to include previous Vipers people have owned as the information about them can be useful to others (since this section links to the Product Reviews section).

If people are posting information about cars they haven't owned, then they should remove them.

I would hope not!

I mean there is no reason we can't open up the system to other types of cars, I'd just have to do some work to allow people to input different makes/models and then build some kind of index to allow people to view, say, just Vipers or any other brand.

I think the index has value and being a "viper" site, I just always assumed it would be a listing for Vipers.

Am I thinking too much about this because you're just needling me or are you really interested in profiling other types of cars?
