Default VB garage installed

Do you want to post images of your ride for everyone to see? Want to let everyone know what you've got under the hood, how fast you've run, and what awards you've won? You're in luck, we've just installed vBGarage!

For those of you who've never heard of vBGarage, it's a plugin for vBulletin that allows EVERY registered user to have a custom, personalized page where they can tell everyone else about their car and post pictures for everyone to see. Interested? I knew you would be. Follow the directions below to add your car to vBGarage. One last thing. We've recently added a "Gallery" section to the site (see here). All images uploaded by users into vBGarage will be reviewed and possibly posted to the main gallery. If, for some strange reason, you don't want your car posted in the main gallery, please do not upload a picture (or make sure you upload a low-quality image that no one will actually want to look at).

vBGarage Directions:
Log into the forums.
Click "User CP" from the menu at the top.
Click "Edit vBGarage" on the side menu.
Fill out the form with all of the appropriate information. You're free to write whatever you want in the "Text" field but please keep it about your vehicle and please keep it family-friendly.
To upload an image, click "Browse", select the file from your local computer, and then click "Submit".
If you have large images that you want to post and you're using Windows XP, you can use the Image Resizer Power Toy from Microsoft. This handy, free utility lets you resize images with little more than a simple right-click. You can get the installer here.

Image Resizer Directions:
Install the file from the link above.
Open an Explorer window and select all of the images you want to resize.
Right-click on one of them and select "Resize Pictures".
Select "Medium" (800x600) or "Large" (1024x768) and then click "OK". The images you selected will now be resized and will be given new file names that include the size you selected (ex. "IMG_0845" will become "IMG_0845 (Medium).JPG"). NOTE: some images may be larger than 150KB when using the "Large" setting. If that is the case, you'll need to use "Medium" instead.

so the question is... do we need the member's rides section any longer?

BTW I didn't write those directions, I ******* stole them.
