Looking at his e-mail again, he said, "I'll message mudoilngears." And then mentioned that tomorrow (today) is Canada Day and he'll be off, but back on Thursady. So, hopefully then. I'll keep on him, he's been pretty responsive thus far.

Oddly when I picked up my 88 resto project Trooper my 21 year old college daughter and all her friends think its really cool. I was shocked but she said "retro" (yeah I had a hard time with that too) vehicles are cool now.

Just an update, I still haven't heard form them. No real hurry, but it might be best to finish what needs to be done before we fade of their radar.

Agreed, I'll hit him up again today.

I'd be willing to moderate, as I've gotten a great deal of valuable information from this site, and tried to give back as much useful information as I've gotten. Not sure if all those Isuzus in my signature qualify me or not, but there are still lots of good vehicles out there and still a valid need for this site to stay active.

I don't know, with all the zuzu's you own you kind of have the market cornered. Might not be enough left for a fan following Lol :lol:

Hey Stephen, Great to see they gave you moderator rights. Hope to see some good activity return to the page. I started a r/Isuzu subreddit a while back and have been directing people to Planetisuzoo. Looking forward to ROTM returning. Hope all is going well with your trooper.

Thanks, hombre. I'd like to see RoTM Return as well. You interested taking the reigns and firing that back up?
Trooper is good. Building a dual exhaust for it right now. Hows the Amigo?

They didn't give you admin abilities did they? I'd love to fix the picture issue on this site. It's a royal pain. I think we'd see build projects go way up if it weren't so cumbersome to post pictures.

No, they only gave us moderation rights. The picture issue can only really be resolved with a software upgrade to a newer version of VBulletin of XenForo. I know that VS has other sites on newer software, and I've asked them about that and the response that I've gotten is that they are willing to upgrade it, but they have to resolve some issues with our current database, which is old, in order to do it. No timetable, though. For me after resolving the moderation issue, getting the software updated is the biggest thing. So I'll keep after them on that.

Not VBulletin. This is phpBB.

And what "picture issue"?

Thats correct, but VS only "supports" VBulletin and XenForo. So those are the options for upgrading.

The issue is that the site makes you crop photos down to be only a certain amount of pixels wide. It says how many pixels, but that doesn't translate to how I crop my photos, so it's always just a guess. It's annoying to try and post 5-10 photos, then get a message that something is too wide. It doesn't say which one though, or how much wider it is. It also seems to be a ratio, because I've cropped photos to make them more narrow, but if I also crop the photo to make it shorter, it changes the aspect ratio and won't accept the cropped photo. Finally, once you finally get the photo posted, the site auto resizes it anyway into that dumb little box where you have to click for enlarged photo. If it's going to resize them all anyway, what's the point right? It's just an annoying thing to always have to work around.
