    Silver GTi at MidlandVW

    Spotted this morning while having the Bora serviced - low, loud Silver GTi with Antracite alloys at Midland VW in Cannock. Anyone on here?

    CL down this morning?

    Knocking on for 15gb. Most of it is 18 years of pictures

    Yeah, dropped for a few hours, ran out of space! Extended it and back in the game!

    CL allows you to sign in with your Facebook ID, and then it l links your FB profile picture with your forum picture (I believe, I've never used it). So I guess it's just updating their forum pic along with the FB pic...

    There is a Chrome Plugin that (claims) to work: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/photobucket-hotlink-fix/kegnjbncdcliihbemealioapbifiaedg?hl=en Test/Use at your own risk, not tried it myself but reviews claim it does.

    Merry Christmas!

    A Merry Christmas and HNY to all. It gets quieter here, year on year for obvious reasons - but we're now into the 17th year of CL's history, and we're still alive. Fun fact: we were here before Facebook, YouTube and Twitter Have a great holiday!

    Maybe if we had a .de domain and the initialism would be KKAK...phonetically not great, and the wrong number of K's for my liking. However, people like brand association with their club; it's difficult to do as you'll really be covering VW, Seat and Skoda. Having a "VAG" badge your car looks odd to people outside of car circles....

    I did consider rebranding at some point, but there's too much history here, I'd be like the desecration of an historical landmark I can't create subsections that have their own identity unfortunately.

    We just don't get the traffic anymore to warrant any of it though. As an example, we used to get 30,000 page views per day back in 2011 - I'm sure it back in 2006-8 during the peak it was probably more than that (I changed to Google Analytics, so lost the stats). Now? We're down to 3000 page views a day, so 1/10th of the activity. To be honest, most of that traffic is just unregistered visitors digging for info, I know we're only getting between 10-15 posts per day, so not worthy of heavy moderation....it's to be expected, they stopped making the Lupo 12 years ago!

    Funnily enough a few people asked me to setup a proper "Up" forum linked to this one (instead of our little subforum) but at $200 for another forum license, plus additional annual support fees...it's not cheap. Otherwise it's some nasty free PhpBB or MyBB. Plus the fact there is already an Up forum.

    Nicki and Tigz haven't been on for years - I've not removed their mod status, if no other reason than the fact they were both long-standing members who invested alot of time into the forum so I've left it purely as recognition. As for new mods....there's barely enough content here to need moderating. I think Ray and myself come by often enough to keep things in check, and there's the report feature if we miss anything. And give Rich mod status? It'd be like leaving the kids to look after the house while I go to work

    Future Forum Update

    A bit like this: https://invisioncommunity.com/topmembers/
  15. Hi all, I'll soon be making an update to the most recent forum software, which includes exciting features such as: Clubs! (I heard you like clubs, so I put a club in your club so you can club while you club). Reactions on posts! (rather than just 'like' ) Improved Profiles! Better Leaderboards! (fao: Rich) And so on. I'll be taking the forum offline for a bit at some point this week to do it....so if it's down, you know why.
