    Just thought I'd bring this up to the top again.

    If there's something you'd like to see here, or something that you might want to see different, just let me know.

    Rob,

    Just joined, sent a message in to the site regarding support about an hour ago. Can you please have someone contact me? Thanks so much! Look forward to checking this forum out some more. Is there a stat link you can send me?

    I'd like to be able to cut and paste Word docs with embedded pictures into the message field so I can write some procedures with pics.

    There's another Cadillac enthusiast site that has this capability and as soon as procedures are generated, they're usually posted on the site's FAQ, which works real well as a one-stop place for DIY'ers. The site isn't well attended by XLR members, so I'd rather post here for maximum effect in the community.

    I find that as detailed as the GM shop manuals are, things don't always go the way the manual describes and the sketches aren't as helpful as pictures. In some cases, the procedures omit key steps, so I have to wonder if whomever wrote it actually performed the task. I document it as I do it, so it's as accurate as I can make it. I'm able to generate and render computer models too --if a picture isn't good enough to describe how something functions. Add streaming video per Galen's request and I can post animations too if needed. (I'm an animator and engineer.)

    Other than that, I like this site's layout!

    What's with the black bar in front of the gallery pictures? It overlays the picture.

    The action bar that you click to move from one picture to another lays over the top of the picture. Must be my res. setting causing this.

    An XLR Registry would be fun - VIN #, location, mods done, interior/exterior color, mileage, etc.

    Also, one thing I miss is the birthday notifications we got on the "old" forum on the bottom of the home page. It was nice to see who was having a birthday and to wish them well.... or am I not looking in the right spot?

    hehe....it's coming! I'm in the process of testing one on the Corvette Action Center and I should be releasing that one within the next 24 - 48 hours.

    Once I have it working there, I'm going to port the scripts and database schema here.

    I'm probably going to need help from everyone here with the XLR Registry, because I will probably have questions like:

    "how much was this option in 2006?"
    "was this or that an option or standard on the 2005..."

    etc...

    Stay tuned!!! I'm actually very excited about this!

    Galen,

    That shows up if your cursur is on the picture itself. Move your cursur off the pic and it disappears--your pics will still scroll.
