Default Think we need a Video section

There'* times that I come along videos of dragraces or other stuff non-bonnville related and have trouble deciding where to post them.

It would be nice to have a VIDEO section only, where all threads are videos. Those that want to waste counltess more hours here at BC can in the video section instead of having to search and hunt for some videos to watch.

Lots of other clubs have video sections, would be nice to have one here.

Thanks Mods!!!!!

Only possible if we have a dedicated video server. I am not 100% sure members with web space would be 100% dedicated to this idea. Bandwidth is a priority.

Sadly the BC server is not equipped with vast amounts of web space. That is why this site is free and without ads.

Something has to give and its BonnevilleClub server space. I know many members have graciously alotted web space for members and have hosted for x amount of time. This is a courtesy that we are lucky to have.

Sorry Taylor, but thems the breaks

As much as I hate to, I gotta agree on this as well. That way, they can stay unread 'til I get home where I can watch 'em. And they seem to be cluttering up the other sections lately...

I will bring this up with the rest of the admin staff. For now, please place all videos in Your Ride for organization purposes. Also, if you have many vids and can host em, place them in ONE thread.

Eg, MOS has 5 vids, dont start 5 threads, put em all in one thread.

We'll get back to you on this item
