Hi, this is a false make (it will erase later).
Before the summer, like each year, i ask you about new feature for Webcarstory or things to change, erase etc. Each year i had a lot of time in summer to do it.
My proposition: return of the model cars (i had erase them quickly in the past), because a lot of men passionate by cars collect some models cars and it could be a new public for WCS.

What about your propositions? Changes? Critics about my proposition?

I personally won't do anything with model cars, so do as you like.

I was wondering if the special editions could be changed a little bit? If you've seen the way I use that section, I usually add trim levels of cars that have a different grille, or maybe a bodykit, but nothing different when it comes to engines.
Could the special editions section be changed to Limited Edition/Special Edition/Trim Differences? Otherwise, maybe add a new section that could be used for just extra (small) pics of the car? (Though it should resize pics automatically, like the pictures in the "last completed" bar)

Return of model cars is not bad idea. Since I have 800 of them I could upload pic of every car :D

Also few years back I asked about adding some info about manufacturers like founding date, founder, HQ location and that. You said that it was difficult for some manufacturers but I think that's easy for big amount of them.

For models cars, i had also a lot and there is also the official pics from some makers( Ixo, Spark...). It will be easy i think to put it, i think i had always the old files.

For the infos, if this is simple infos, yes we can.

I was thinking maybe small pics on the car's page of different versions with small visual changes that are not enough for a new page.

For example: www.webcarstory.com/voiture.php?id=19611

As you can see, I put the Infiniti QX80 Limited in the special editions section, even though it was built for 2 years. I don't think the Limited needs a special page or anything, but it would be nice if some small pics of the Limited could be on the QX80 page, because it has different features, like clear taillights.

Can you give an example of a car that would cause a problem? I think trim levels may have different names in a few countries, but I can't think of a car that has a certain look in one country, but not in the other.

I think it could be a way of adding Audi S Line and such, which don't have any different engines, to the website without creating new pages.
Of course it's also up to the contributor to decide if a trim level needs to have pictures. Not every single trim level is different enough to require it.

Maybe I didn't explain it well enough, it's not for such small differences as alloys/rims or an exhaust or something. I was really thinking like bodykits, grilles, spoilers, and preferably a combination of these things. It has to be things you can see are different from a distance.

Here is another example:
webcarstory.com/voiture.php?id=28671

The Auster Euroforma at the bottom of the page has subtle, but noticeable differences, it doesn't have a different engine.

Some news about the problems of IGCD and Webcarstory. This seems due to an overload on the site (a lot of visitors and a lot of request at the database). I had pay more to prevent that but they said that there is a lot of request in the database that could do problem also. So, just to see, is there fonctionnality that you see that there are useful in IGCD and WCS? I don't have the time now but i can do the list of the request to the database for the pages games/car in IGCD and make/car in WCS if you want to see them.

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

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.

No Car engine etc added successfully isn't a request.
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 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.

> Colors

> Limited Series
Good for me> Problem also for translation and really long and difficult to do all the new cars> Simplifcation? Others?

> Advertising videos
Good for me but Problems with videos erased on youtube

> Model cars

> System of translation

Rinspeed a écrit I think this summer (or before if i have time) i will update a little WCS.
Tell me what is good, what is bad and what we can do if you have ideas.

> Question on the first page
- It was a fun idea, but it seems hard to keep this going. Maybe it's better to remove it?

> Bonus points
- I don't think points are that valuable, but there are a few people who add a red dot for one country for cars in the bonus points section.

> Championships
- Not my area

> Top 10
- Difficult to complete with data usually being in that country's language, or only being accessible afer paying. I still think it's interesting though.

> Car Spotting
- Seems like nobody does this anymore, it might be more interesting to put images on IGCD Discord.

> Upcoming Cars
- Would be nice to have an overview of the cars in this category. That way we can see if there are "upcoming cars" that are already for sale, as well as look at the cars that are going to be coming in the future.

> Colors
- Not interesting to me and it's an absurd amount of work.

> Limited Series
- Same as colors. Time spent on this could be spent adding new cars to the website.

> Advertising videos
- Fun, although I don't really watch any :)

> Model cars
- Not interesting to me

> System of translation
- Hard to implement. Random members translating the website can make mistakes, and it's not always clear what something means. The website could be more accessible if we had Chinese, Japanese, Russian, etc., but I don't think it's possible to have these languages. Also: If you translate the website into another language, it encourages people to comment in a different language > communication between members becomes more difficult.

> System of points members
- It's easy to say as the person with the most points, but I don't really care for it. Originally it was used to see whether someone could be an admin or not, but I think we can tell by how much work someone does, and whether they do good work.
