What if we made the coolest thread ever?

    I had this idea...I know a lot of us on here have some large and interesting collections of pix...what if we made a thread where everyone with interesting, unusual or hardcore truck related pix posts them? I know it would get real big real fast, maybe have to remove posts as they get older? Might it work? Anyone interested?

    I have a huge collection of nearly useless pics, but nothing even remotely close to hardcore. I would still share though.

    You know what might also be cool......?

    Putting those pictures into some kind of "gallery" so that they wouldn't clog up the message forums. :rolleyes:


    Seriously, Steve just had to do some reconfiguration of the site due to the large numbers of pics being plastered in all the threads.

    I've got about 1000 pics in my gallery (seriously!) and all anyone has to do is follow the link in my .sig

    Yah, but everyone's gallery seems to have alot of blah in it, and you never know who has the cool stuff where. this would be the best-only pix thread...like one post = 5 pix per person...and we could delete as they got old or something. I know about the too many pix problem...I just don't really wanna go thru all your and everyone else's 1000 pix looking for cool stuff. Also, lots of us odn't have our pix up in the gallery on CK5.

    But if ther "powers that be" don't like the idea, i guess forget it. That's why I asked first. Its just that a picture is worth a thousand words, and every time thre's a post, people always say more pix, more pix!

    I think that sounds like a good idea, but maybe people could post links to 5 specific pics in their gallery rather than their main gallery to keep Steve's job easier and weed out all the non-relevant pics.

    just my .02

    That '72 Burb is the most awesome old Burb I have ever seen :bow:

    I have some questions about pics though. Is it pics that are attachments, or linked from another site, or both that created the most recent mess? When I post my pics I will use either my ck5.com gallery or my photobucket.com gallery and link pics to have them show up. Does it still cause clutter this way?

    Sorry for the questions, I'm not very computer smart.

    Sounds like a good idea...which reminds me...i havea hard time finding people in the gallery...why not link to a person's gallery from their little info screen thingy.
