Since I'm just now stepping past 2002 message posts on the 'CCA forums (well ok, this forum and the last one that Steven S. saved from oblivion with a lot of tedious taskwork - woulda been more messages by now had the club kept it's first and 2nd forums and not nuked 'em, but them's the breaks, as it were - anyway...) and onto 2003 with this post, it occurs to me it might add a bit of flair to the forums if they were to display icons of various BMW model number badges to correspond with a member's number of posts and display that marker with a member's avatar that's shown with messages posted by a member.. Maybe something like this, although I think maybe a black & white line drawing would be much more the way to go, I just crudely cropped a pic of a trunk badge from a red 2002 here - less than the desired ideal aesthetic, methinks - Perhaps something like the following: # msgs | (model trunk badge displayed to represent number of forum posts) 3 messages, you get 3.0, from the E3, give folks somethin' just for getting started. 135 (from the E82) 250 (Isetta) 300 (from the 2nd-generation Isetta) 320 (from the E21) 325 (from the E30) 328 (did the 30's-era BMW's have number badges? If not, perhaps use the E36) 330 (E46) 335 (E92) (Yeah, I know folks might zip right through 'em once they've made 320 posts, can't be helped since those are pertinent model numbers, what can ya say) 435i (new 4 series coupe, whatever body-code that is) 501 (from the "Baroque Angel", assuming it has a number badge) 507 (the Goertz classic) 528 (from the E28) 530 (from the E12) 535 (from the E34) 540 (E39) 545 (E60) 550 (F10) 600 (last & largest Isetta) 635 (E24) 700 (umm, you know 'em) 735i (E23) 740 (E38) 750 (E32) 760 (E65) 850 (E31) 1000 = M1 (Since "M" is the Latin equivalent for 1000, let's say Mx1 = 1000, from the E26 M1 supercar) 1500 1600 1800 (all 3 from the appropriate 'Neue Classe' models) 2002 (obviously) 2500 (E3) 2800 (E3) 3000 = M3 (E30 M3) 3200 (early-mid 60's 3200 CS coupe) 4000 (M4) 5000 (E28 M5, might as well go with the first M5 badge) 6000 (E24 M6, again giving priority to the first M6) Not sure quite where to go after that, although it may be awhile before anyone gets that far - if past history is any indication, the forums will be changed, archived and then nuked again long before anyone has a chance to get half that far along, but perhaps this iteration will have a bit more permanency than the prior club forums - time will tell. I tried some small model pics for icons, but too small to be discernible - presumably model trunk badges in a small size might be more easily seen. Sugestions, anyone?
