Welcome to the Forum - F.A.Q., etiquette guide and random thoughts.

edited October 2015 in General

Welcome to the Infinite Garage Forums.

After much debate, and a few requests, Infinite Garage now has a forum. Born from a desire to have an online place to hang out and discuss life's mysteries, which mostly revolve around cars and a few other forms of transportation.

Take a moment to review the forum rules, introduce your self and have a look around.

F.A.Q - Forum Basics

Internet forums have existed since the the 1980s. If you've spent any amount of time on a forum you shouldn't have too much trouble finding your away around. We're not exactly reinventing the wheel here.

That being said every forum has it's own idiosyncrasies. Below are some of the basics of the Infinite Garage forums. The list will be updated as new features are implemented and it is in no particular order of importance.

Posting:

If you can dodge a wrench you can post a comment or discussion on the Infinite Garage forums.
Click the New Discussion button to start a new discussion thread. Make sure to pick the appropriate category and add any tags to make searching the forum a little easier for everyone.

All discussions and comments support Simple Html. Currently, there is limited WYSIWYG functionality. The top bar of the comment and discussion boxes allow basic formatting and the ability to link urls or images.

The forum supports quick html linking of YouTube and Vimeo. Simply dropping the url from either video service into a comment or post should create a playable video link.

Comment and Discussion Management:

Hovering over a comment or discussion post will give you an option to like, dislike, or promote. Use that option at your discretion.

There is a leaderboard

There will be badges
