It was never the intention for it to be available to any, working on it.

Ok, who has the option under Profile > Summary to hide their online status.  I can't find why anybody but administrators should be able to access that option?  Members of the committee, registrants, General Members.

Members Sheds. -> multiple sub forums.
« Reply #64 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?

That could certainly work, when I have time after the current auction ;)

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)?

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 ;)

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.

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.

Artillery and other weapons.

I am conscious of including discussion on the 106mm Recoiless rifle and the associated rounds in the gunbuggy thread.

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?
