New Rogues Gallery Site

Got a little bit of start on this today (when I should have been working). It's not bad but you have to work around the limitations of the googlepages, but I think I got the basics figured out. It's going to take a while.

So far I like that orange rectangle with the "error 404 site could not be found logo" sort of stealth cool.


Sorry Hills, I couldn't resist. Should have said can't get there from here. I will come when its built. I have a new jersey in hand for my picture.

Will the index take us to individual entries, a section of entries or all entries?

I know you only have a few loaded but the index currently takes you to the first one of the index list. As much as I like Stepfam I don't want to see him all the time No offense Stepfam

Great start Tim. I'm glad you took on this task and am now inspired to send you
a profile. I'll wait a while 'till you've had a chance to catch up a little. I don't wanna
bore everyone too soon, anyway.

Thanks for taking this great thread and continuing it on it's journey.

Free Pie for you !!!!!

Happy Trails

Good going HH. I think the dedication to Denver is a nice touch.

Also, it seems to load quite fast even with this Amish dial up that I'm stuck with.

You need to change the "sticky" and post it in your name with your message and link. Contact a mod

This is great. I was getting worn out and didn't even know it!

I feel like a "load" has been lifted off my shoulders, and I am 10 pounds lighter. Think how fast I can ride now!

A good start, but the pics are too small. I want to see what the other reprobates look like (and their bikes).

If you click on the pics, they come up in another window and they are larger.

Beverly,

There will be several groups of links containing approx 9-10 names per group. The only other way was to give everyone their own page which would have been alot of work and probably exceeded some page limit for the free service.

I have had one complaint on the "Old Farts on Bikes" title not being classy enough. I will not reveal the sender as being he sent a PM I assume he wants to remain unknown.

I am not tied to that name and will go with whatever the majority thinks. So?

Also when I am ready to start accepting new bios I will start a new thread with the info on how to. It will probably be as simple as sending me an email.
