Cool wall forum

It's not all that it could be I think.

We have these individual threads, for individual cars, but surely there should be some sort of title thread? Some way of comparing the results from car to car? That would be much more interesting.

Even if it's as simple as a mod-started thread with number of votes added up in some manner.

Well like anything, it starts as an idea from nowhere, its made, adjusted and remade sometimes, eventually you get to use the idea and ask for adjustments again, this is no different and I guess it can be done, its just a matter of prioritising it, I will drop an email to Jeff to take a peek. In the mean time please be more detailed as to what you want to see and how you see it working so we can understand fully.

Re: Cool wall forum

I'd be careful Bazza. He's probably out there somewhere still trying to find your address :BB Bat:

Although, in simpathy with Howell, I don 't remember the word 'Trout' being used

Re: Cool wall forum

Was it him who threatened to come to Congleton and do me in?
I'd honestly forgotten, get so many internet threats these days

Maybe I won't invite him back after all...

I think the current cool wall is good - however would like to see the images positioned proportionately left-to-right according to how cool they are - ie a slightly less cool car will be slightly further left than a slightly more cool car, if you know what I mean - continuous positioning rather than discreet groups of 'cool' and 'uncool' - as the current method doesn't so accurately display the difference in coolness between the most and least cool cars in a given group.

That has to be one of the most rambling posts ever but hopefully you get what I mean!

Oh and also if there was a way of highlighting the cars you haven't voted on on the wall itself, and how you rated the ones you have voted on...
