Thanks to popular demand, a kick in the pants from Meister, and a software tweak from ekool, every member's car Year-Make-Model info is now visible beneath the user's name in posts and in the user's profile. This will help members to provide more accurate and detailed information when replying to specific questions and concerns and is required input for all NEW members during registration.

For all existing members:
PLEASE take a moment to input the information right away, it only takes a moment and is simple to do...

1) Click on User CP on the top Navigation Bar
2) Click on Edit Profile in the menu on the Left
3) Enter your data
4) Click Save Changes at the bottom of the screen

If anyone needs help with this, you can PM meee or Northern Rider for assistance. As we go, please help to remind fellow members and "bump" this thread as needed until 'Mission Accomplished'.

Thank You! :)

Just wondering....I'm seeing different responses for 'trim' including vehicle color and accessory packages. Does it matter or are you looking for "Base, Limited, Touring, AWD, C, SRT-8"?

Yes bruno, base, limited etc... I agree it may confuse and I'll see about changing it to the more common make and model. Thanks for bringing it up!

Here's a huge Thank You! to both HEMEEE and ekool for making this happen. :thanks: :)

Re. bruno's and HEMEEE's discussion, since "300C" fully defines the model of my car, I used the "Trim" box to state "All options but sunroof", which could be useful information to another member attempting to help me troubleshoot an issue.

PS to HEMEEE - You'll note I edited your post to let everyone else know that it was a very gently-landed input. ;) :kiss:

Well, what does everyone think we should put in there... technically Make is Chrysler and Model is 300 or 300C... so, what word would be less confusing?

Input anyone???

We have our fair share of Magnums and Chargers here as well. I'm thinking change it to the standard year-make-model and have all the info appear on one line on screen... (i.e. 06 Chrysler 300 Base -or- 06 Dodge Magnum R/T -or- 06 Dodge Charger SRT8, etc.) meaning, delete the "trim" line.
Any other info can be included in the sig space as we do now. I thought about making "trim" read options, but that could/would just get carried away :wink1:

...whatcha think members, chime in here!

Linda,Year, make,& model would probably be the way to go.From prior post,Trim seems to be confusing.( I'm almost anticipating seeing " chrome" next to trim -- LOL)

I think that "trim" or "package" are the most accurate ways to denote the final configuration of the car, i.e., limited, touring, C, SRT8.

To the extent that a particular trim might have two different engine sizes, is it worthwhile to add "Engine: xxxx" to the listing?

I'm with Linda's suggestion. It is very specific, succinct, and will keep the profile box from looking too cluttered. Any other miscellaneous vehicle information can be included in a member’s siggie.

Seems simple enough as is, "car people' know what "trim" level is.......right? :wave:
I hear ya, but not everyone here is "car people". One look around and you'll see the info is all over the map. The point is to standardize it as much as possible to facilitate assisting each other with less need to delve into basic questions before we can do so. :wink1:

Had another thought, now that this feature has been in place for a few days...
I'd REALLY like to see the year-make-model info as the last line of the profile block, rather than at the top, to keep it easy to see each member's join date at a glance.

Hmm

Good point - one does have to squint a bit to find it, and join date is looked at/for more frequently than the car details.

Concur fully.

I guess so. You know if you really want to standardize..why not make the choices available from a "drop-down" list. That way there are not fill-ins. :banana:
