  Forum Upgrade
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-19-2010, 01:13 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (30)

I'm gonna upgrade the forum to the latest software version later today...

There may be a little down time or modules not working but don't worry...we'll have it back to normal in no time! Big Grin

  Update to the forum rules
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-13-2010, 06:23 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (4)

Since many members and visitors to this site may have differing views on politics, religion and certain societal issues, we have decided to exclude public discussions on such topics. I've been modding and admining sites for a good while now and this is normal protocol to avoid differences and spats amongst members as well as to provide a family oriented site that members of any age, race or social background can participate.

This site is primarily set up to support the 71-73 Mustang hobby, but we do encourage off topic talk in the proper forum sections. Off topic discussions help members to get to know each other and help build relationships on the forum. We just want to weed out these few sensitive issues for the sake of a more hospitable forum!

The VIP Lounge is available for donating members that would like to discuss any off limit issues on this forum. The VIP Forum is hidden from the general public so it will not project any wrong images to visiting guests or easily offended members.

Now with that said and this being a car forum...debates about Ford being better than Chevy can go all day! LOL!

Thank you for understanding and I hope you continue to enjoy the forums!

  Link Directory Added!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 10-12-2010, 10:18 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (3)

Hey everyone! I just added a new feature that allows you to upload links to an organized directory! You can add links for 71-73 related sites, other mustang sites, personal restoration sites and even your favorite misc. sites (with some restrictions, of course! No porn, dating, spam or other offensive subjects!)


The link is also found under the "MORE" button up top!

Enjoy! Big Grin

  Weekly Fun Question - Test Your 71-73 Mustang Knowledge
Posted by: cobra3073 - 09-28-2010, 03:02 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (2)

Good Day All!

As a result of what we believe is a very good suggestion (Thanks Doc), it has been decided to make a couple of changes to how we handle the "Weekly Fun Question" on the forums.

Starting this week, the question will be posted every Saturday at approximately 7:00 P.M. (CST). Instead of posting the responses to the Forum involved, we will be asking that the response be PM'd to me (with a courtesy copy to Barry (Rocketfoot)).

The first correct PM will still be the "winner" but I will not post up that information until the following Monday. It is hoped that using this approach will encourage more of you to submit your response to the question. Sending the message to Rocketfoot at the same time will "keep me honest" and hopefully negate the possibility that someone will think there is a "fix."

Again, this is for the Weekly Fun Question (not the Periodic Award Fun Question).

This is your site and we do not intend to operate in a "vacuum", so please feel free to post up with any concerns and/or additional suggestions you may have relative to this intended approach.

Thanks again!


  Forum Awards
Posted by: rocketfoot - 09-21-2010, 10:25 AM - Forum: Site News - No Replies

In conjunction with Cobra's Weekly Fun Question prize, we also came up with nice little award icons that will be placed in your post profile. Each winner of the contest will receive the medal of honor! We're also toying around with some other forum awards for the near future! If you have any suggestions...reply here!Big Grin

  Special Periodic Award Fun Question
Posted by: cobra3073 - 09-21-2010, 08:51 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (3)

Good Day All,

As you are aware, I have been generating a Weekly Fun Question every Tuesday relative to your knowledge of the '71 - '73 Mustangs. After consultation with Rocketfoot and 72HCODE, I have decided to generate a SPECIAL PERIODIC Fun Question in certain weeks that will earn the first correct responder with VIP membership (a 25$ value). For anyone who is already a VIP member, a 25$ postal money order will be sent directly to them.

To ensure fairness, information will be provided as to when the SPECIAL question will be posted no later than Tuesday of the selected week. This PERIODIC question will be gleaned from information on the site.

There WILL be a SPECIAL question this week. The question will be posted at approximately 7:00 PM (CST) on Saturday of this week. The first person who post up with the COMPLETE correct response to the question will receive the award.

Keep in mind that I still intend to generate a REGULAR Weekly Fun Question (non-award) in the weeks when there are no special Saturday question.

Again, there will NOT be a Tuesday Weekly Fun Question this week, BUT there will be an award-based Periodic Fun Question to be posted on Saturday, September 25, 2010 at approximately 7:00 PM (CST).

It should be interesting!


  7173 Mustangs Garage Added!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 09-10-2010, 10:47 AM - Forum: Site News - No Replies

Hey guys! I'm excited to announce the addition of a Garage Forum to our site! I'm still working on a few minor issues with layout and stuff, but it is ready for some testers to give it a try! Please post any questions or comments in this thread so I can track them.

The link is in the nav bar above or here:


Just a few notes...each member's garage will hold 5 images (1 cover image and 4 others) The cover image is required. It will also allow up to 4 optional modification images such as detail shots of your wheels, interior or whatever.

All uploaded garage images must be 1024x768 or less in size (up to 3mb in file size)
You can also attach or hotlink more photos in the body of the vehicle description if you like. These images and be almost anysize and will resize automatically to fit the forum margins.

When creating a new garage thread, please include the year and trim level of your car to help with searching...example: 1972 Mustang Mach 1 or 1973 Mustang Convertible, etc.

I hope you guys enjoy the new garage!

I'm not the greatest artist, but I made a little 7173mustangs.com flyer that one could print out and display at a car show or cruise! It's in pdf format and prints nicely on a color printer! Might also make a nice drop flyer for when you see another 71-73 Mustang at a show!

As most have already seen, 72HCODE is a walking encyclopedia of 71-73 info! So we have added him to the 7173Mustangs Staff as a Super Mod/Technical Advisor! Just a little way to help thank him for the priceless information that he has been supplying to our forum pages! Cool
