Do we need any new categories or forums?

Recommended Posts

I would like to know our member's thoughts on this. Are we lacking in any forums/categories here in the community? Should we add any?

Maybe a pictures and videos forum, or a tech forum, or any other type of category....

Any ideas are welcome!

Some time back I opened an account with webshots, http://community.webshots.com/user/TrooperFolk, and shared the user name and pass word with most of the posters here because it was easy, or at least I thought so, and lots of us have used it. It has lots of room for lots of photos and accepts pictures and videos. If you come up with something quicker and easier, I'm sure it would get used, I like it because you can post one photo and it opens the album and you can see all the photos even if you're not registered, important, for instance, look at Lennys post, http://www.utvboard.com/Nelson-Hills-ride-report-t867.htm,

What we need to do is learn how to write ride reports, like Lenny's and be able to put photos and videos in the report, maybe under it's own non-branded forum. I always enjoy reading my sons forum, here's what that forum looks like, just for an idea, http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=317714, lots of picts.

You could drop the KYMCO UTV line, or not.

That's my 2 bits worth.

Kinarfi, Lenny's ride report was very good but after reading your sons forum, I would think this would be a better format for our site if we can do that. Your not linking to another site but as you said you can go on to see all the other photos if you want with webshots. Maybe, if we can post photos like the adrider forum, we could also keep up webshots too and get the best out of both worlds. I have tried to load videos onto webshots before with no success, that's why I suggested to add a video section here. The problem could be for me time lag causing it not to upload, I'm not sure.

Cheers Mike.

The same features with adding a photo in a thread like at http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=317714, are available here...I'm not sure what you would want to add except maybe a separate forum for Photos and Videos, or Ride reports forum..

All the photos in that thread are hosted at another site. All you do to add a photo in a thread is grab the url, then use the rte-image-button.png button, which will bring up a popup for you to enter the photo URL. That's it really.

We do not have a video upload section, I can look into adding functionality to display a Youtube video within posts....
