    Also, when did we get the bitchin' check icons?
    I just started turning them on for threads (only mods+admins can add it). Makes things much easier to see who posted a proof shot, and who has not.


    Want a green checky box added to your thread? Find your proof photo that you posted, and PM me with the post url.

It came about because too many morons would start a thread and only later would we find out they were full of shit. "Who cares?" you may say, but it's annoying, disrespectful, and it feels like a betrayal to anyone who took the time to reply to the thread. We simply don't like trolls.

      This rule is a good balance between proof (impossible to photoshop) and not causing lots of hassle (it takes 30 seconds to write your username on a piece of paper and cut a hole in it, we're not asking for you to make a video or something). A tiny bit of extra work from you and no disappointed members of the community.
      While I completely respect and understand the reasons for this particular decision, I feel it actually takes away from the community.

      It feels like adjusting for immaturity on our

      And I won't be. I know it matters little now (though I ironically have posted proof for my current car, however inconsistent), but some day I won't be driving a bucket.

        It is hardly a Nanny State move to ask someone to do someone as photograph their name on a paper while they are photographing the rest of the car anyway. What would be a Nanny move is to put the community or admin team in charge of vetting every thread. It's not that big a deal.

        It depends on the vehicle, I can think of dozens of column shift cars that are incredibly awesome. Also, I have respect for anyone driving a three-on-the-tree.

          Not sure if you are implying the addition is good or bad.

          There are 990 threads posted in this section, and it is too much of a hassle to keep track of who posted proof, who has an exempt thread due to age, or who is a bullshitter.. so the prefixes were added as a "reviewed" indicator.

            I just posted a proof pic of my bike, it took a whopping minute to find a piece of paper and stick it through the shifter.

              You must REALLY need approval and to show off if you went through all this effort...

                A bit nitpicking. The new icon's transparency is a bit flawed (which makes it look bad) and it should probably be the same size as the "go to first new post" icon (12x12px). Because of those it stands out too much and looks ugly at the moment.

                  Strange rule for a forum but, I understand. I take a proof picture soon to make a thread about my car.
