I more like to post the details about each car in the post where the car's photos are present - this is more convenient to read. Moreover, for some events the info may be longer then it is allowed for one post.
What I had in mind was, all the event info and such in the first post - addition information, about the cars being posted and such is certainly welcome in subsequent posts.

I think this forum is an excellent idea.

May I recommend that this thread of mine be moved here?
http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/forum...ow-2007-a.html
For the revised title, I suggest "Antique Car Show / Chantilly, Virginia / June 17, 2007"

I was also at the show in 2008; now I have an incentive to put the pictures into some kind of order and write up a description. Does it matter that the event was about four months ago?

I grabbed the other thread. No the date doesn't matter.

What about renaming this new forum 'Documented Events'?

Just calling it 'Events' seems to indicate future events, or a calendar forum IMO.

Yep, I know most of them have some other members' posts between my ones, but the rules were not imposed back then yet, and I guess these are events

same here it would be a shame to loose the old threads just because of the new rules.

I tried posting an event on the Calander, and it never showed up. What is the proper way to post events?

So can we call the Calender a "useless function" now?

It's always been pretty much useless tbh.

I'll ask W if we can do something about it if he doesn't reply here first.

Useless because users have tried to post but events never shown up? Or because users have never tried?
