Coupe Racing PM'd me

"Hi Steve - good idea - but is it wise to put so much personal details on view in this day an age?

Maybe I'm a bit paranoid/wary

See you soon

Cheers

Steve"

Any thoughts on this and the profile generally :?:

Looks good to me! As Jim says, DOB could just be year, for the people that want to plublish it.

Not sure we need a pic of the driver, I assume thats what the first photo would be? But we can if you want - what do people think. Is that too much personal info to put on the net - Name, pic, DOB?

All in all, it looks good to me Steve.

I'd be happy to post up all the information about my car, and include a photo or two of it.

As for personal information, my name is about as much as I'd be happy to put up there. Maybe I'm over cautious, but In these times of identity theft and internet scams I think it's as far as I'd go.

Great promotion for the cars. Agree with Steve. I'd be happy with photos of the car and details od mods etc but no personal info at all.

Guess it need not be a one size fits all and people can decide individually on what level of info they wish to publish.

Good job Ian.

Which format are we following now? I realise they're pretty similar, but it would be nice if they where all the same. That kinda thing bugs me! Lol.

Also, best curborough single lap, needs updating to double.

if it bugs you, you shouldn't have confused the issue :-)

I've made the earlier ones stickies in the absence of a decision - if everyone wants to use the dummy profile Steve posted, then it's simple enough to change them?

best time at Curbs is single and double laps where applicable.
