View Full Version : Spotted Threads...

Okay, lots of spotted threads lately, and so, to make things more enjoyable for everyone instead of the sole person who posted it, a few guidelines...

Firstly. Exact locations, a No-No. If the car is there all the time, increased risk of being ripped of.

Secondly. Have a point, it makes it so much more enjoyable for the reader.

This can be accomplished via 2 ways:

A dialogue where you actually spoke to the driver of the car you were stalking, outlining interesting points.

or, more desirably...

Post a picture of the vehicle of which you spotted. Because the "Spotted Lambo Diablo, Holy shit is was awesome" doesn't really spark anyones interest, and doesn't benefit the forum at all because noone can comment on it other than badgering the person about NOT having a pic. ALSO, Blur the licence plate of the vehicle you spotted, as in most cases I am sure they did not give you permission to take the photo in the first place. This provides a bit of courtesy and respect.

Most spotted threads turn ugly cause the thread starter posts such obscure info that relates to nothing, and no picture is provided. Booooooooooo-RING!

If you spot a nice car and you want to share it, GREAT, but back it up with a illustrated account of it :)

Sound Good?

All Spotted threads NOW MUST CONTAIN a usable identifiable photo.

Camera Phone photos STRONGLY discouraged.

October 2007 Edit:

Moreover, in all honestly, who REALLY cares if you saw a Lambo/Ferrari/etc etc etc. We can all take 2.4 seconds and go to Google images and type it in for that rare occasion we have no idea what a Gallardo looks like.

As far as I'm concerned, the only spotted thread I'd like to see is if you've got professional level photos of a highly modified exotic, or a massive group of them.
