It's kind of hard to get an idea of what cars are on here and whose they are.

My thinking was some sort of grid type gallery with one picture per car, ideally a full shot of it and the model type. Then people can click on on that car and see a gallery, link build thread etc. Perhaps sortable by manufacturer, type/ etc.

                    I think it's a great idea in a "Who's car belongs to who" kind of aspect.  It would encourage people to start a build thread, so the picture has something to link to.

                    Rating isn't really needed, if you think it's a nice car, tell the guy ;)

                      A lot of the times when I'm out and about, I'll be like "That's a nice car, wonder if he's on TTI so I can give him props" and I have absolutely no way of knowing without being like "durr saw a subaru today durrr" in the spotted thread.

                        I think ratings are important. Not many people would tell the guy "one star" lol ;)

                                That seems a bit better.  More of a positive element right?

                                I mean, if a car has distasteful mods or whatever, but he really enjoys it, and gets rated a 1 by a lot of people, that would give the wrong impression.

                                Having a "Like" style kinda thing, shows he has a few likes, keeps him going.  Seems more positive.

                                Just thinking outside the box is all :P

                                  Ya not so much feeling the rating system, it's not a contest, it's a community.

                                  If I want to message my fellow MR2 owners (for example) for advice, it would be nice to see who those were. Right now we have people starting new threads with "Any MR2 owners herrrooo?". Also it's a nice perk as a supporting member to be part of the TTI stable as it were. If people have multiple cars, by all means post one pic for each. Trim level indication would be a must as there's a large difference between a lancer, lancer raliart, and lancer evo for example.

                                  Also for people thinking about joining the site they can open up the "garage" or whatever and be "like wow", or "look at all those subaru's, yuck!"

                                      Thats a great idea. Without the rating system.

                                            This would be an awesome addition! I would say the "like" button is much better than a "star rating" as we'll.

                                                I think it would make a couple people upset.

                                                There's some members on here that are really proud of their car and they got ragged on hard (tireburner, theguy,etcetc)...

                                                Everyone has their opinion, and opinions are like dicks.. Nice to be proud of and have one, but you shouldn't go around showing and telling everyone about yours.

                                                  I like this idea. It would give people a chance to get some pictures of their cars up and give the photographers on here a bit more work to do (lazy people). Hell we could even figure out way to do video...like the one Shaun did for Tarvis.

                                                  But lets be serious for a moment. If we had a rating system you know that everyone would get mad when my car gets all the votes/stars. Its okay guys no need to get butt hurt. :hurr:

                                                  I agree that a "like" system is more suited for this type of this. No feelings hurt and drama started.
