In the old vb we had albums and galleries

now we have showcase also. and we found stuff that should not be in there. spam stuff and who knows what else we will find.
we have never had showcase before.

so where is the stuff from the old vb that is now going in showcase coming from?

i read that showcase is just an add on

can it be removed from the new admincp when it comes out?
is it necessary to have it?
is there or will there be a tool in admincp to list all the showcases so i can view them for appropriateness?

Been 8 months since vB but my memories are Albums and Galleries, neither of which we used as build threads (which is called Members Rides). My own build thread is 90 pages, with 1784 posts so to me way to big for something that really has a casual ring to it 'Showcase'. Under vB it also listed how many pics were included, and I seem to remember even how many deleted posts there had been. My Build is linked via my sig as well.

Heya all,

The NFWS filter does work on Showcase and the old "Garage" info from VB moved over into the current showcases.

We will leave the "Showcase" option on for now and it might populate the homepage differently after some design updates or tweaks to the ROTM contests.

You are able to edit, delete, and warn users in the showcase and I believe users can "report" showcase items also.

2 quick things:

1- While not every forum is the same, Showcase (previously was Garage on vBulletin) has become very well-liked by members across a high percentage of sites. We anticipate in the future continuing to build on the functionality; and eventually being able to make them just as useful as a really good Build Thread. However.....

2- We are also considering have specific thread-types, that are customized to their purpose. In this case we would have a thread-type for "build thread" or as they are known on some sites "members journal" (and possibly even both separately, as in some cases members journals are more like their "story" and contains things like 'what i did with my car today') ... so... if we go with these, they might make Showcase/Garage more obsolete.

At the end of the day, we want our users to be happy, and provide them with tools and options to upload & share their content, photos, and videos. That is the lifeblood of forums. But we realize that not every site is the same... so we are taking this somewhat carefully in trying to determine what users will like best (research), and what will not just maintain the old contributors & contributions, but also encourage new, high-quality contributions, even for new/younger users that may have somewhat shorter attention spans. We want it to be easy, but also encourage long-form. Its a tricky balance sometimes.

Would love to hear additional thoughts... and links to what you see on your own sites is always very helpful!!!!

This is our section for Build Threads, we changed the name years ago to members rides so they could include vehicles other than their Patrol and some had bought other than Patrol but remained with us:
Which includes my build thread:
'Albums' had lost some of its attraction over the years as 'build threads' became more popular.
Showcase is really a condensed version of a build thread with a Gallery at the bottom:
