Who are these? As they seem to be posting normal content?

We are in the process of changing the rides list to accommodate historic photos. We are also in the process of taking the photos out of the main rides list topic and adding them as replies. When they are on as replies, we then change the author of the reply to the person who submitted the photo.

 

The idea is that.....

 

I create a topic for a ride. You submit the photo. Another member then "Likes" the topic - the credit goes to the topic starter (ME!) and not YOU as the photo submitter. The new system will allow the credit to go to the photo submitter.

 

"Not A Forum Member" is a member that I created because we have some photos submitted by people who are no longer a member.

 

"Rides List Moderator" is a member that I created so that the rides list topic starter is neutral.

 

Neither of these members can get "Likes". This ensure that the allocation of likes is fair (pun intended :))

 

It will take some considerable time to move all of the rides list over to the new system, but we have made a good start!

Sounds absolutely brilliant Bill- well done for the hard work as this must take a while!! I did begin to wonder why loads of members suddenly started posting photos of arcades, but that has answered my question about that as well.

 

Many thanks

The photos will be moved to separate replies either when new photos are added, or if like today I have the time to do it. It will take a while, but will, in my opinion, be worth it.
