How much CSS/PHP would be required to do a chatbox on the sidebar/upper?
I think it would be pretty nice, it's a popular feature on "other sites" and was used regularly on FB.

Yeah I'm definitely planning on adding a chat box. I had one on another site so it wouldn't be hard for me to add it here as well. It was kinda messed up on some browsers though so I'll need to fix it before moving it here.

If anyone has any other suggestions, please post them here.

Maybe it would be a good idea to put our sponsor(s) on the homepage somewhere and maybe linking to their website.

+2 For a "DIY/ How to" section. When I start doing some stuff with the S13, I'll be making some "how-to" videos so we can have them up on the Youtube channel. Figure itd help some people out whether in our club or worldwide since most how to videos out there arent so great. So everyone should keep that in mind to if they are doing any modifications on their cars and are able to recored it. Give it to me and i'll edit it and make it into a 5min how to vid.

I'm throwing this out there and think it might be a good idea.. I'm pretty sure all of you know that Winnipeg is a pretty small city and everyone knows each other. However, I think it would be nice if we had a thread that introduced us to do field of work we do, so we can feed off each other in a sense. IE. I'm looking for a wielder to weld stuff for me. Why not look on TT to find someone that can help and pay them to do the work. Also it's a good way to get referrals from people to.

Just a thought, I've seen on forums where you HAVE to post in to a section before you can post anywhere else. Also you need X amount of posts to post into the buy/sell section. Should we modify this forum to that? Also should we modify it so that they have to post into the Newbie section first before anywhere else in the forum?

How about a "buyer/ seller/ trader" rating of some sort, similar to the one on Heights. Then it helps people who are a bit wary of buying stuff from people they dont know, etc. Especially if you've got a guy coming on here with 1 post and its automatically selling a ton of crap, so I agree with Faken about a post limit before being able to post in the sales section.

That would take forever with the number of staff here. Not practical for a small local forum.

And admin or mod reviewing For Sale section posts, now that might be a good idea to make sure they meet the rules.

I love that idea.

A while ago I had thought that it might be nice to have a field beneath the usernames on the side to display our real names if so desired. The "who are you and what you drive" thread is good, but it requires having to actually study it for a long time before remembering everyone. If we have username, real name and car avatar all displayed to the left of that person's post, we would be reminded of who they are instantly every time they post.

We could call it "ups" or "props" or "rep". Or just a numerical value. So that when someone agrees with some other post, rather than making a new post saying only "^ this" or "+1", they just click on the "+1" button and then a "+1" appears by that person's post. Which would then turn into a "+2" when a second person +1's it, and so forth.

Please dont post "photo bombed" pictures up. They look cheap and unprofessional. We have enough talented photographers with great taste that "photo bombing" is definitely not required. All photos should be in the same style as the ones taken by shaun, mitch, david, ken, etc.

Photo bomb as in I was gonna collect them all. Including the ones I have taken since we became Top Tier. Then take the time to sit there and edit and upload in the proper format including all watermarks and photo credits to those who took said pictures. Not cheap ass pictures that look like garbage. Trust me if anyones gonna keep the integrity and look as well as promote us the most and where ever possible... Its me. This aint my first rodeo. And Im 100% sure I have mentioned that I made an instagram for toptier before.
Then the "official one" pops up on there 23minutes after my post above.... Just an observation

Its taking initiative. Just like how I came up with the idea of the youtube channel and launched that in February when we first made TopTier. Theres no harm in having another members photographic perspective on something as simple as Instagram. Im not gonna sit here and fight about an iphone app because I know I brought it up before, most likely with Travis or way back when we just had the FB page for the original members.

Need to entrust others with doing some stuff as well, especially when its someone more than capable of handling it and has people with hook ups/ friends in the high places of the car culture, so its not a select few being burdened with everything etc. I could ramble on but Im not going to. Everything Ive done has been in the positive direction for TopTier and in the best interest of its members etc. Nothing was done for me, but for us as a whole because no one else thought to do it or did it yet.

I have the same taste in photography as you and the other members on here and I cant always make it out of the city when all of the other people go out to meets/ shows etc, so any chance of showing off any of our cars whether its just a Civic with a lowering kit to a fully modified car should be taken advantage of when all other people capable to take pictures etc are out of town together at another meet...

Anyway, thats that. Keep suggestions coming.

I guess you don't understand.

Instagram has become a powerful marketing tool. With over 40 million users, each picture has the potential to reach a ton of users. Therefore, we need our name represented as accurately and professionally as possible. You may view it as something "simple" and just an "iphone app" but in reality it's not.

I could go into detail but I'd rather not. You have a personal account. Use that for sharing your pictures and continue hashtagging. When it comes to representing our site in the eyes of the public, let the staff members do that.

I would rather do this privately but since you aren't replying to my messages I'll do it here.

Thank.

Finally someone gets it.

Of course its great when people want to take initiative for the betterment of the group. If ten people started producing their own stickers, shirts, and whatever else, it would be an issue.

The money from everything we sell goes directly back into the group, and nowhere else. If you want to support it, then donate or buy merch that the group provides. Or help at events. There's no financial commitment required here at all.

I see where Evan is coming from. He has ideas and is willing to help. Just needs get approval first that's all. :). Lets not get sidetrack here please...

I've been curious since we got the option plus and speed factor on here.. why do we only have one banner and the vendor in it changes every time we refresh.. I think it looks better if we had both of them in the middle.. kind of kills the white space at the top a bit.. That way, when people come in, they automatically see all our vendors, and tell Nott and Executing tinting to make a banner.. I'm sure it will make our vendors a bit more happy =).

How about we start actually puttin the blog section to use. Enough of our members have had their cars showcased or featured on other sites to warrant some use of that section. Just this past weekend when DODOlogic was here they shot some of our members cars because I asked them to and they did a short feature on Mikes Cima and Mikes G35.
So you could post up the shots they used, links to the actual page etc.

Mods have a really itchy trigger finger when it comes to closing threads. I realize that it's fun to be a mod, but 80% of the time it's not necessary. I've seen more than a couple threads get closed immediately after an answer. There's no chance for feedback, opinions, alternates, anecdotes... y'know, conversation?

You locked a thread instantly because a kid wanted to make a BBM Group because not everybody uses tapatalk, and was curious of anybody would join.

Not to mention the "For Sale" thread that Cody posted for his Si, which had all required information, AND was posted after he made an introduction thread.

I agree with the trigger happy comment. It may not be as excessive as brought to hand, but there has been a couple guns which have been jumped rather quickly.

Why would i not want a 100% width browser? lol. And i know that the point is for it to be responsive but its possible to make make the thread titles responsive as well (ex. for larger screens it will display 100% of the title and when the browser width is being decreased the dead space slims down and if need be, the thread title becomes shorter. Seen it done before. I can't waste precious seconds of my break hovering over thread titles haha :P

I personally like the "white space" between the forum title and the thread title, if it wasn't there, the forum would look EXTREMELY cramped.

Keep in mind that the page would still take up 100% of the width on your monitor, and be centered...

W/o the whitespace...It would look like this (sorta)

When I click on an image to see it's full size, sometimes it just blows up my screen and I can't see anything because its like 4000px.. Any way to set something so it will fit inside the table?
Are you talking about attachments or images hosted elsewhere?

Obviously only happens when people attach an image that's HUUUUUUUUGE...

Can't remember if I've requested this before but can you guys create a "show threads created" hyperlink for everyone's profile page?

As an example, Andre was referencing his manyata and I had to browse through several journal pages before I found his.  It was a complete waste of two minutes.  Make my life easier TTI.

With new articles and show coverage coming out, I think there should be some form of notifying everyone when something new is posted.
Perhaps something on the home page? or a section for it linking the new article? Something of the sort.

Just came across this article http://toptierimports.com/wp/back-to-school-kec-car-show-winnipeg-mb/ From a bunch of photos posted by darcy in the car show thread with a link to the full article. Some people may have missed this had they not looked through every post in that article.

It was just a thought. Perhaps for those who have super expensive cars and don't want to be next to jalop civic or if TTI is going national perhaps not everyone can get a prime spot on time if coming from out of town. In either case they would likely be the minority and could have been priced as such.

Pretty much the same. If there was an option for it to pop-out into a new window, then you can have eyes on the chat and still browse/work, but then still be able to respond. Cookies would probably let you open the chatbox in a new window without it losing your profile information.

First, next, previous and last should all be there already, just in number form :)
There should be links for the last 2 pages and next 2 pages from where you are, as well as links for the first and last page.
