    Ok we are not really picky how you start your build here.. If you can try and be detailed so new members with zero mods can learn from you that would be great..

    We ask at the very least, please post the following:

    So to help this I have added "Prefixes" in The Gen area's and "Junkyard" area. This should help when reading in the "Whats new" area.


    Say your starting your Gen specific build thread..

    Hit the Prefix and click Gen 2

    This is how it will look in the "Whats new" area

    Notice how it reads Gen 2 Build thread vs kgbanddrb's build..

    This should help define each Gen vs the other..




    Original Model type
    Year
    Basic outline of whatever mods have been done (or plan to be done)
    PICTURES!!!! (Everyone loves them! Help us help you admire your rig more!)

    Also, the subject title should have your User ID or something you call your rig etc... not named something generic, like "My Build" or any other title that could be anyone's thread. Any searches done in the future will be confusing and hard if multiple people chose a generic title like "My Build".

    Other than that I recommend bumping 2 post after your 1st.. This will give you all the room you need out from...

    Happy build!
    drbandkgb and Team!

    How many pictures can you put in one post?

    Okay, I need to edit my build thread. For some reason I thought it was 10.

    Nope, we want everyone to have enough images per post to get their info. out there. 30 may be overkill; but it will give you some room for future mods etc.

    I think 30 is awesome. Like you said we can get info out there without having to stop and continue in the next post.

    Just checked and our maximum images/videos per post is still set to 30. The only thing I can think of, is that a post devoid of actual text and only pix may throw it off.

    Another thing, and I'll add this to to first post... The subject title should have your User ID or something you call your rig etc... not "My Build" or any other title that could be anyone's thread. Any searches done in the future will be confusing and hard if multiple people chose a generic title like "My Build".

    ThanX!

    Did the post limit change? I just updated my build and was not allowed to attach more than 10 photos?

    I must be doing something wrong. How do I include an image? I have the photos loaded as attachments via the upload file option. When I click on the image option, it asks for a URL. I don't have them hosted anywhere, just saved on my computer.

    that's the attachment limit. If you use the attachment, and post them inline, then you're limited to 10. Using the IMG tag you can post 30, but that has to be hosted off site. Imgur is the preferred host for that right now.

    Yeah, hosting isn't cheap, and in order to bring you this site with minimal ads we have to keep our attachment size down (5 MB) and limit the number per post.
