Gunbuggy is tricky.  Thanks button, I think there is a karma plugin that does that, I will check.

Financial support, mmmm this costs nothing more at this stage, so I see no need to go there.

Thanks Pete.

Another two suggestions if I may -

1. Photo and Video Gallery.

2. Interesting Internet Links (You may have to think of a suitable heading for this one). Maybe 'MV Net Links' or something like that.

Along with the other suggestions above... may i suggest get the colour scheme sorted to match the website or previous forum colours then it will look polished while you play with the rest ;)

Outlaw, I am working on the olour scheme at the moment. 

Stuart, Photo and video gallery, no.  We have a reasonable ammount of space, but that would soon eat it up, especially videos. Interesting links perhaps would be a good long term thread rather than a dedicated forum section.

I think the best way is for me to add it to this page on REMLR itself.

I'll do that when I have the time.  I've just finished giving the kids tea and I have to get them to bed before I can think about anything else.

Pheonix,

How about a section where vehicles that are "BER" or just wrecks can be recorded. "Wrecks for your Wrecords" as it were (kudos to Keith for that one  ;) ).  I have (and have seen) several old Landies/chassis that will never be back on the roads and I thought this info should be recorded.

As an example, one of my 71 workshops has a rusty chassis and I have another (cut up into sections) chassis that I plan to use to fix the workshop. Obviously the parts one will never be restored, but thought the chassis number should be documented.

How's that for a threat?

Actually, a marking discussion thread may be good but to trawl through the pages that will build up?
Maybe a section would be better with the threat titles, sorry, thread titles being more descriptive?

A matter for the admins. Posted count is only useful for gauging, how invoved/new a person is on a forum. 'milestones'(500/1000 posts by etc) are only really celebratory if they are useful ones. (as opposed to hahahaha)

I'm sure there is a fix somewhere, as a lot of other people are proud of their post count.

Hi Richard. Sorry to be a bother etc...

I'm thinking we are doing great lately on the research front.
Can we tidy house and have a thread banner/section for "REMLR Research".

I just noticed that you began a "research" thread regards Xmas Tree codes, some time ago, in the registrant only section. Now, it says something, whether its about me or the forum setup, that I only just came across it 10 mins back when looking for a suitable spot to nest the research threads...

At the least that one of yours could go straight into the current Veh Markings section?

Actually, [headslaps] can we kick this idea around -- why not simply alter that Vehicle Markings heading/name? Maybe turn it into "REMLR Research" (+subtitle "Fact finding: Service, Rarities, Markings, Codes, Documents, Manuals, etc"). There are threads in the Series 2A section and elsewhere that could move there straight off...

115 range I will add that info to, but it was noted as unknown because we have no images of any of the pages of the ARN ledgers form that range.  If anybody has any phtoos of the ARN ledgers of any section I am always happy to get them as they will be added to the database as time allows.

Title: Members Sheds. -> multiple sub forums.
Post by: Diana Alan on November 17, 2013, 10:28:32 PM
What would people think about the Individual member's sheds being turned into sub forums, that way, members with multiple vehicles, like Dinty, Scott FFRman, gary cookey, Ellard and myself included, could have multipe threads one for each vehicle.  It would make admiring someone's shed less confusing and easier for the member to maintain.

If it's too much work for the mods, perhaps we only do it for registrants up front and expand later if necessary.

Good or bad idea?

Whilst on the subject, how about a new 'REMLR Members Projects' heading as an alternative. This way, the 'sheds' (photos of vehicles in collection) and 'projects' (individual vehicle restorations) can be kept separated. If a member adds to his or her collection, he/she can add more photos to Members Sheds. If a member then starts a new project, he/she can start new restoration thread in Members Projects. This way, we can easily keep track of members projects without hunting through their 'sheds'.

Just a thought :)

Hi Tommy

You've been to cookey's shed then? 8)

Hes the only one I know where you'd have to hunt through his shed, most of the rest of us it would a mere glance and you could see everything.

In your plan, what would happen when the restoration is finished? Would it stay as a project thread or move to the shed, or are you thinking of the sheds only as a gallery of images of the finished project like the one on the REMLR website (not the ones here on the forum)?

Diana
Title: Re: The "SUGGEST A CHANGE OR ADDITION TO THIS FORUM" thread.
Post by: Tommy on November 19, 2013, 10:32:02 PM
Hello Diana

I think the Members Shed would be a good place to show viewers ones collection. Member posts up a photo and a brief summary of each vehicle. As the collection grows or shrinks, members adjust their shed details accordingly. Maybe 'before and after' restoration photos can be posted along with 'as found'.

The benefit of having a separate 'Projects' thread is the ease in which members can follow progress on one or more vehicles from different restorers. Goto 'REMLR Members Projects' and scroll down to whichever project takes your fancy. Make comments or post up photo/s that may be of interest to the restoration/restorer. Keeping projects within a single specialized thread would make sense (to me at least :)).

I really enjoy seeing other members projects/restorations. In my case, a project would mean the ongoing research into LRPV service history etc. As such, member projects may not always be a restoration. It may be an exercise in researching, hunting down and acquiring parts for a vehicle they have.  For example, your Gunbuggy project began the day you bought it. You have an unusual brush bar and holes in the bodywork. We have spoken about the gun mount on the bulkhead. Today, you have posted a photo of the grinding disk damage to it's panels. These issues and other ongoing research constitutes a 'project'. Eventually, you will begin a full restoration. I would love to see all this information brought together into a single thread. I find researching a vehicle fascinating and I'm sure other do to.

Does all this make sense ;)

Post by: Diana Alan on November 19, 2013, 11:10:52 PM
Hi Again Tommy

I think I see where you're coming from.  Would the Sheds be here or the REMLR website?

On the Projects area, would that be within the types ie  FFRs, Gunbuggies, workshops areas we already have or somewhere else.

Either way it will be a big job for Phoenix and The Booger to sort out.

(BTW: did you know that there is an LRPV replica coming on the market in Sydney? its very well done (at least I think so) the base was an FFT.)

The idea of having sup forums here for members works in progress I like the idea of, but the REMLR website will always be the home of completed vehicle's sheds, or anybody wishing to be there.

Granted I have a backlog of a couple to update and include, as with many things on the website, but I do as much as I can when I can.

Richard

The suggestion was directed towards the REMLR Members Sheds on the forum and not the website :). My suggestion was the addition of REMLR Members Projects as a new heading either under REMLR General or REMLR Technical. I do believe projects should have their own heading.

Members sheds on the website can be dealt with separately.

We have sections for radios and miscellaneous equipment, what about having a separate board area where the various weapons systems like the Bofors, 106RCL, Rapier and maybe even small arms can be discussed?

Could we have a section for members to post references to people or business that they recommend I don't mean super cheap, KFC etc  Like a next door neighbour, car transport, second hand parts. web sites  etc.  that can assist forum members.  This is not a paid advertising shop.

Just wondering if this is a good idea or not ....
I'd love to be able to go to the ARN database on the main site and where the last column for an individual vehicle says 'Archive photo', be able to click on it and have it linked to the actual photo, instead of having to go walkabout, looking, looking, looking for it.
Now I know this will take a whole heap of work, and some, but it's something we could work towards eventually.  I'd even help if needed.  (sheesh, I never thought I'd put that statement in a public arena).
Over to you fellas....

Storage is the other issue there, the Photos on the REMLR hard drive I think is about 5gb and run into the thousands of photos.    Hang on, i'll check!

ok, the official stats, 11.1 GB of photos and videos.  38,753 files which are photos, videos and in some cases copies of smaller websites.  So yeah, a bit to do to have it all there.  where I can we are putting links or addresses to the photos when they are online already. 

It is something we want as well, but, well i'm not quite sure how, given that I think I could do 6 months full time work to put all of the records online that I still have to do from ledger entries, ARN entries, vietnam records etc etc.  However nobody is offering to pay me to do that, so I do what I can when I can.

Also I get more documents and information every day.  the other day I was sent a copy of the trials report for the Mini Moke from the army trials for example.

Hello upper echelons of REMLR,
 I have in my hot little hands a 10 page report called 'AUSTRALIAN DEVELOPMENT OF THE LAND ROVER ONE TEN FOR THE CIVILIAN AND MILITARY MARKET' by Ray Habgood. It appears to be a photocopy from a magazine called 'The SAE-Australasia', July/August 1986.

 Has some interesting info on engine selection, chassis design and suspension selection. The photos in my copy are poor but the diagrams of the transfer, TRB intermediate shaft, 4x4 Cargo/Personnel and 6x6 Cargo (narrow cab) are okay.

 Is this already in the REMLR archives?

Dear Admin    ;D

I think we need to consolidate the number of folders on this forum. To me there's a lot of unnecessary duplication within the Vehicle Research, Land Rovers and Vehicle Variants sub-folders.

Also.... I think each sub-folder needs a little sticky stating its intended purpose.

I'm happy to assist in any consolidation work, should you wish to go down that path  :)

I did a ruff count of folders.... there are 69 or so.... covering 6 marks of Land Rover, a few International trucks and some misc vehicles. There is a lot of folder duplication and the purpose of some is not necessarily intuitive.

It's time for a spring clean of the forum.

It's nice to know you are trying - the feedback is appreciated.

My memory is rusty, but I think as a Moderator I could move and combine Threads ? If I do that and leave empty folders, you can close them down ...  which is a job for the Administrator I think.

I think the very first step though is to agree on a folder structure ? I've had discussions about that with others - how about we draft something up for you and maybe the Committee to ponder ?

Thanks again  :)

I think a lot of the confusion is because people keep expecting to see an actual button.

When looking at the previous post by FFRMAN, it shows "Posts: 2078". Under that it shows "THANKS 175" and below that in smaller letters shows "Thank". When I move the mouse over the "Thank", the cursor changes from the standard "I" to a hand and if I click it, adds one to the 175 count. When I originally joined the forum I was looking for an actual button as that is what some other forums have.

The Thanks button looks good but its lead to unintended consequences.  :'( People get ideas. My nerdy son copied the Thank You Button idea for domestic application and now I have a Thank you Button for my wife. Big problems! If it doesn't go up every weekend she gets very quiet for 2 or 3 days and I have to watch what goes in my food. He's can't take it away either, she watches it like a hawk. Problems.
But he's moved on with the idea already - had a brain wave and he's currently working on a No Thanks Button for supervisors and foreman at work, bank tellers, the ladies at the Motor Registry Offices, parking police, politicians, and real estate agents.

Post by: Ravvin on February 23, 2016, 05:04:16 PM
I guess its just a way for people to show that your post was helpful in some way to them.
In my thread about my truck, if someone posts something that I find useful or helpful, I click the "Thank" thing on their post. (The thing I circled in red in my last post here in this thread.)
This only makes their Thanks count go up by one, and even if they don't notice, I know I thanked them for their contribution that helped me.
This is also why you don't have a "Thank" button on your own posts. :)

On other forums and things like Facebook, (which I refuse to use), they have a "Like" button or option which then shows exactly who "likes" the post. I prefer our system. If you have a "like" option that lists people for all to see, I want a "dislike" or "total cr*p" option.  ;D

The system does allow a dislike button (the plugin is actually called Karma) but I figured nothing was gained by people being able to give strikes against other people, and i've seen that abused on other forums too.

Curious about GGG not being able to see the thanks button when others can, Very curious.  I know yo aren't worried, but it is puzzling.  Which browser are you using?  Possibly a javascript issue on your browser??  not sure.
