I will start with something... And please don't take this as something that needs to be done immediately or maybe I have overlooked this section. I know you guys have your hands full and I certainly appreciate all the hard work!

How about a dedicated "build" thread where users can keep updating their modifications/improvements over the course of time? I suppose we have the "registry" but I figured that that was more for keeping track of where different Integras are in the country/world.

I think that was the idea behind the registry. Show your car and track it's build progress. Thanks!

Threw something up quick. It's only functional in the subsilver theme at the moment. I'll play around with it and get it working on other themes.

Edit: Threw something else up. It's only functional for the prosilver theme atm. It's the thumbs-up near the search bar on top of the first post.

RSS feed for new posts. I don't know how you would integrate it, but with certain forum styles, it comes embedded automatically.

That way it gets published to my rss feed automatically, and I don't have to get emails sent to my inbox of new replies which gets full pretty quick.

Being able to embed videos would be nice?

Im no pro but i was looking at how it can be implimented on youtube, and it doesnt look like it'll take too long.

Other than that I'm still happy with the place... even if its a tad quiet!

The youtu.be link under the "Share" button should automatically embed.

I figured it out. Go to user control panel, change style to glossy black, then copy the rss feeds on the board index into your RSS feed reader.

Does anybody use them anymore? I depend on my google reader to troll for me.

How about a location map thing? I remember there being something like this before. That way we can see where all our fellow members are located all at once on a map.

That was a push-pin style. Those I've looked into are at a cost. Still looking tho.

We had a Frappr map back in the day. Since then Frappr has been shut down. I'll do some searching and see if I can find anything.

A "TegNote" section. should be with quick facts about the cars and parts, like the grand caravan rear sway bars bolt on to the tegs, differences between the 5dr and 3dr (factory header is different), also between the 86-87 and the 88-89, this would become more helpful as people add to it. plus with would take a lot of the guess work out finding parts or comparable parts.
Science says you cannot crap, piss, and nut at the same time. I beg to differ.

:idea: Posts need a "like" button like facebook and redpepperracing does. And we need quick share links for online media and network sharing per page.

I looked through the PHPBB plugins for this a while ago. The only one they had seemed like a hackjob. I'll look again and see if any others have been made.

Is there any way to have the google result not just say "Index Page"...I feel as though people would be more attracted to it if perhaps it said "First Gen Integra Forum" or something along those lines...?

Not sure if this is a good place to put this, but I've noticed that there's an SQL error when deleting posts (missing or mislabeled table it looks like).

Yeah. I removed a plugin a while back and it must have taken some code with it. I gotta restore a back up eventually.

Gotta hate when that happens. Well that and when phpbb's automod installer decides that your plugin doesn't need to use the table prefix making you have to export the new db changes, delete the tables, then edit the sql file to add the proper table prefixes.

I suggest a wheel, tire, and suspention setup section for reference and education showing different wheel tire setups and the specs of the car. This section should not permit any discussion on any setup, purely for reference so that it's usefulness as a reference is not diminished.

The first post should include a link to a offset calculator as well ie: http://www.1010tires.com/WheelOffsetCalculator.asp

This is the template I use on another forum help I moderate.


Pictures are ideal for showing the fitment relative to the body and how different styles look on the vehicle . It would be ideal if users submit one at the rear 1/4 angle, both front and rear and one down the side so viewers can see how the wheel/tire fits within the arches/flares.

<images of car> (should be side, front angle, side angle and down the side of the body)

Specifics (example)

Wheel: Mugen MR5
Size: Front: 15x7 | Rear: 15x7
Offset: +30
Tire size: BFgoodrich Gforce T/A TDW ZR rated. Front - 195 50 15 | Rear - 195 50 15
Customization required:
Suspension: Front - 24.5mm torsion bars, Tokico Illuminas set at 3
Rear - Ground Control coil overs XXXXXX spring, Tokico Illuminas set at 2
Owner feedback:
In the future, everything will work.
