    I really hate having to go back to the pre episode sub forums to check whats in the episode when a torrent is released, maybe you could include a macro that copy/pastes the details of the episodes from the pre-episode threads to the torrent link section?

      I prefer to summarize the episode descriptions rather than the long, drawn out (and sometimes with spoilers) descriptions featured in the pre-ep threads.

          Eh, I don't much like all of the fancy, new stuff. I'm a fan of minimal = better when it comes to Forums, but I also know that most people seem to like this complicated stuff. Hope nothing breaks when it's installed, as I know it will be...

            So you want me to time travel to the future to install it? Is that why it's in the suggestions thread?

              I think there should be a wiki link on the front page.

              Here:


              So that you don't have to navigate through the forum to get to the wiki.

                  I hope this is the right thread for this...

                  Recently since you've had the "Porsche Shooting Brake Hoax By TopGear.com America" video on the homepage of finalgear, my browser is downloading the entire clip every time the page is refreshed (I do this manually quite alot).

                  Is anyone else having this problem? If so, what can we do to resolve it?

                  Thanks.

                    Assuming you use Firefox, try Flashblock. It makes it so you have to click to activate each flash element.

                    Note that for me at least, it does not download the entire thing, just the player and what looks like about the first 10 seconds of the video (at least according to the video's progress bar).

                        but what happened to the header banner than changed every time the page loads?

                          I killed that like a year ago. We were having load issues or something.

                                Just a quick request: how about somebody torrent Richard Hammond's Crash Course? I've seen the first two eps, but getting them on a single file d/l was an exercise in infinite patience!
                                It's not a bad series by the look of it and it IS the Hamster after all, so it's Top Gear-ish.
                                Thanks for all your work BTW.

                                    Not really a suggestion, but more of a random though... Now that Porsche and Chevy are making 7speed manuals available to petrolheads, does FG need a new logo since 6th is no longer the final gear?

                                      No because Vipers only have 6 speeds.

                                      Although the shift pattern is completely wrong if I'm going to use that argument...
