    Something that never got done on AC but was often mentioned; is it possible to have two sections within the Projects section? One for Corsas and one for traitor threads?

    Can we have an electrical Section as I might want to post up about Computers etc

    Or even better, move the "whats your PC/laptop setup thread" from AC to TC.

    Just an idea.

    We're trying to cut down on the amount of forum sections. For now at least, use the General Chat section for anything that isn't car related.

    How about a prefix of the model like we do for the help sections? So:
    Corsa A
    Corsa B
    Corsa C
    Corsa D
    Traitor Car

    I think that's a good idea

    is there a way of arranging by prefix for instance if a person only wants to view corsa B stuff?

    You can use the search function for that (thread titles "Corsa B" or something).

    Ahh that's cool. Also, is this section (feedback and help) exempt for the "latest posts" section on main page?
    Doesn't show up.

    I think the prefix should be used in all relevant sections. Tutorials, help sections, classifieds, and projects.

    A question - I want to re-write the tutorials I did for AC, it's easier to do the text in a WP and then paste it over. The one on buying used cars had to be cut down to fit into one post - but the updated one will be over a couple of posts to give more information. So the question is - what's the word limit for each post? Just so I can arrange it in blocks before copying it onto the forum.

    20000 characters, which is double what the limit is on AC.

    Sorry, not quick enough, Dave beat me to it.

    Heh, its the default for a VB4 installation, we didn't change it. Lee, if you fancy it being shorter, just say.

    No it's fine as far as I'm concerned. So long as JT is happy the server can handle it.
    Please contact me via PM if you would like to transfer your AllCorsa Gold Membership over to our VIP Membership. It's completely free to do so.
