The past few days it's been taking forever to load. I usually don't even see the truck.

The front page would look 10000x better if my truck was on there! JK beard did a great job with those pics. I like the front page alot. Even if it takes a minute or two to load.

yea it is a bit slow unless you have the photos cashed already. Try reducing the quality of the images in photoshop. Your best bet is save any image you upload as "save for web" and if you have the newer version of photoshop it's "save for web and devices". Also it helps if you make the picture quality about 80% instead of 100%, you really won't see much difference in image quality, but it will significantly lower the file size, thus taking less time to load on browsers that don't have the images in their cache...if you need help feel free to PM me, I've been a web developer for almost four years now and it's kind of a career lol.

Just thought of something...why not make a flash animation of all of the trucks. Make them fade in and fade out, I think that would look pretty good, you wouldn't have to worry about repetitions, there would only be one file to upload, and it would be a lot easier on your server = D

i like it, i hit refresh until im sure ive seen every truck and then i get to the site itself. its almost time for my jeep steel wheels to come off, i'll have to get some pics in a good spot and save them to 1024 size, last time i tried blowing up a auto-sized photobucket pic i took last summer, looked a little grainy blown up. i'll have to give it another shot.

Actually, I really like it.

Although, you could just submit the new one in a couple of months.

When the time comes, I'm gonna have to shuffle through my pics to get another one to put up again.

Is it just me, but I don't see any trucks on the home page, forums or any other page for that matter.

Using FF on vista. Tried with noscript disabled and still nothing, tried addblock and its not blocking in the site. Huh
