yeah kind of sort of like that. people could say a little something about themselves or their cars, and post pictures or whatever else.

maybe the section could be called "Member Registry" or "Member Profiles" instead of just "Member Rides"

I think 'Registry' may be the best term and it's recognizable by most folks thumbs up

the only part i wasnt too sure about was the "viewing options" part, where it gave the option of flat, threaded, or hybrid. i figured hybrid was the correct option so that people could choose their preference, yes?

Actually, most people will probably use the flat view, but it doesn't matter, because it seems that each user's personal preferences override whatever the forum setting is. The default for the rest of the site is flat, I think. The hybrid view is kind of the worst of flat combined with the worst of threaded, IMHO.

You can if it makes you feel better, but I doubt anyone would notice. smiling smiley It will just display however people have their preference set. Of course, if someone hasn't set a preference, then I suppose it would display in hybrid view. So on second thought, I guess it would be better set to the forum default (flat).

i guess it ended up defaulting anyway, so it has the correct setting. cooool
