    That would work. The problem I see though is people changing their car text. So that would need to be locked. Thus more work for admins, and potential some forum coding.

    Thread is closed (when unconfirmed but with promise of proof and maybe deleted(?)) when no proof is made.

    Possibly? Or not? Some say The Stig can only stand or sit in a seat... And that you obviously have a fake one in your pic since he's lounging...

    So have we given up on this rule or has Quiky just gone soft? I'm seeing threads right and left with no proof.

    Yeah. Report them.

    ... I guess that means I'd better make up a proof sheet for my stupid truck.

    a bit a late reply, heres the way how proof pics should be done (quoted from another forum), anyways basicly something like that would work over here too.

    For most believable proof, the following format would be best to use:

    Username
    Car
    Website address


    Stabbing it through the gearshift would help, as that is more difficult to photoshop.



    Providing a reference shot helps, as we can see the car along with the sign.



    If you have a floor/console shifter, tear it at the top and tuck it around, like this:





    Either one took me 10 or less minutes to do. If you have the time to create a thread, you have the time to do this.

    At any time after your thread's creation, a staff member reserves the right to request to see additional proof. Another sign is suitable but you cannot use the same picture again. Proof is expected to be provided promptly.

    If for any reason you don't think you can follow these rules, do not post your car here.
