I don't know, is there any way for you to see how many people use WCS/IGCD in another language? I think the great majority uses the English page, so maybe we could get rid of translations.
You could also leave the languages we have now, because I don't think any new ones have been added in a very long time.

I had Deutsch and Russian complete for IGCD (to add) and some want to open Portuguese, Polish and Hebrew

I think bonus points arent much used, but getting rid of them would go hand in hand with removal of points in general. 2018-06-03 16:22

Perhaps the points yes. I think also the note for intro in IGCD, the note for car in WCS (not used), the cars for the stars (i don't see them used)? Points for Carspotting? Tell me what you think and some things that we could erase without impact.

I see, well if there is a problem with too many requests from the database, it looks like a lot of requests go to updating points.
I personally don't really care about points (don't know about other members), and I think we don't really need them to judge whether a member can be an admin or not.
So if it would be better for the database, points can be deleted entirely in my opinion.

I also don't know if it helps at all, but the page you get saying "Car/engine/location/whatever added successfully." doesn't seem necessary for me. If you add an engine for example and then immediately return to the car page, that works fine. It would even save time I think. I don't know if that has any impact on database requests though.

Example for IGCD:
15 requests for all the pages:
- 2 request to update the date of the lang files in translation
- 13 requests to update the points of the visitor
- 1 request to update the date of the last visit

16 requests for a game page:
- 1 request to search the game of the page
- 1 request to see if there is some cars in the game
- 1 request to see if there is some tracks in the game
- 1 request to see the initial of the make to make a sub menu before the pics
- 1 request to see the pics and infos about each cars
- 1 request to see the sub menu with number after the pics
- 1 request to verify if the visitor had done a test for the game
- 1 request to see the results of the test of the game
- 7 requests for the note of the intro video ( to see if the user had already post one note or not and calculate it)
- 1 request for the comments

requests for a car page:
- 1 request to see the info of the cars
- 1 request to see if there is an update or not to approvate (for admins)
- 1 request for the comments

Same things for WCS but with a lot more requests as there is a lot more differents sections

Since 2018 Lexus ES
Desscythe17 NL (9498)
The Lexus ES, which has been mostly North America-exclusive since its start in 1989, is scheduled to be introduced to Japan.
It is the likely successor to the GS, which will be slowly phased out after the ES's introduction.

Seeing how the GS will not get a new generation, it will be interesting to see whether the ES will also come to Europe, or if there will be a gap between the IS and LS.

EDIT: I just checked the Dutch Lexus website, and while the GS is no longer listed, it does list the ES as an upcoming car. I guess this confirms that the ES is now becoming a global model.

Since 2018 Honda N-Van
Desscythe17 NL (9498)
carcrasher88 wrote Fifth member of Honda's H-Family of kei cars, I take it? Nice to see them continuing to be dedicated to expanding the lineup. Is it supposed to be a Vamos and/or Vamos Hobio replacement, or something to compliment the Acty lineup, similar to how the Daihatsu Hijet Caddie (commercial variant of the Wake) compliments the Hijet lineup?

It is in fact scheduled to be the successor to the Vamos and take the N-Series to the commercial market. It also doesn't have a B-pillar in order to make loading from the side easier.

The Honda N-Box (even before it entered the second generation) suddenly became extremely popular in Japan and dethroned the Daihatsu Move and Suzuki Wagon R, which have dominated sales in this specific class for over 20 years. Honda is hoping this success rubs off on the similar N-Van.

carcrasher88 US (13)For some reason, I figured it was gonna be the Majorette version that gets listed here first. I've got that exact one in my collection, shame it doesn't have an opening feature like the brand's Challenger and Camaro castings.

I know that a few other brands have done this Mustang, too. There's a similar true 1/64 Auto World one, Maisto did a rather cheap (and somewhat oddly proportioned) version, Hot Wheels did the Laguna Seca version, and Greenlight did the racing version, the Boss 302R.
