    GARAGE feature - show off your Micra! Now 300 entries!

    If you look at the top navigation bar (underneath the red Micra SR in the header), you'll see a new feature added today: the "Members' Micras -- Garage & Gallery".

    Features:

    • Enter basic info (year, make, model, trim level, colour, etc.)
    • Add photos: easy multiple image upload
    • List optional equipment & modifications (exterior, interior, entertainment system, under the hood, wheels/tires/suspension)
    • Your car will be linked from all your posts in the forum, from your user profile, as well as from the main garage page.
    • bbCode supported in descriptions
    • Multiple browse and search options for finding other members' cars
    • Garage comments integrated into the forum: you will notice a new sub-forum (Members' Micras), where comments appear that are made for cars in the garage.



    Try it out:

    Great to have the garage up and running. Thanks Darin!

    The garage is a great way to keep track of your mods and check out what others have done with their car.

    My favourite thing about it is the link to your vehicle is underneath your avatar in every post, so if you forget what trim/options someone has when they're talking about something, it's easy to look up.

    I think it's interesting that 3 of the Micras in our garage/gallery so far are the $10k 5-speed S.

    That's ~23% (of the Canadian cars) -- much more than the ~4% Nissan figured for the overall share of that car.

    Yeah, it's too small a sample to draw any conclusions, but it does make me wonder if base S buyers are somehow more enthusiastic than average, thus the over-representation in the forum??

    NOTICE: photo bug in the garage

    Ajijic alerted me to this bug in the garage:

    If you add photos to one of the sub-sections of your garage page (e.g. in the "suspension" section), but do NOT add any text in the "suspension" text box, the photos will not appear on the public version of your page.

    I haven't confirmed whether this affects ALL of the subsections (eg. "Exterior", "In-car Entertainment", etc.) but I suspect it will do the same.

    So, make sure
    you add text to the text boxes for all sections where you have uploaded photos!

    300 Micras & Marches!

    Fresh milestone: someone added the 300th Micra/March very recently.

    Lemme see whose entry it is...

    Hey - It's Rupert's U.K. spec 1.2L Micra: The Wagon :: 2014 Nissan Micra (Garage entry)
    ---

    Last but not least...

    Thread: Don't forget a photo in your garage (or you get this awesome one instead!)
