PostPosted: Sun Sep 09, 2012 10:37 am    Post subject: Official Random Home Page photo collections thread Reply with quote

This thread will address questions about the various home page picture collections. I usually switch the collections weekly on Sundays, but certain collections are date dependent (4th of July, Waffle Day, Halloween...).

Hovering over the picture should tell you the collection name. Clicking on the picture will take you to the Random Home Page Details page where you can see all the current collections. Refresh that page to see different pictures.

There is a list of FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) on that page that should answer your basic questions, but I'll try to post here to head off the 10+ "what's with the waffles on the home page?" threads that pop up when the non-VW collections show up.

Thanks for the feedback. I was concerned that people might be upset or offended by that collection.

Running the burning vehicle collection as a banner ad once or twice a month might save a lot of other vehicles from a similar fate. Crying or Very sad
