I'm curious, is it possible to require (or force, rather) all posts to be previewed prior to posting? I always try to preview my posts regardless of content, but sometimes I click the wrong button or forget. I think it might be helpful more than a hindrance, but I don't know if it's been considered or even possible with the forum software.

Harvey Dent's Lucky Silver Dollar Racer

Harvey is using a potentially suicidal combination of lightside and darkside engines!

The 'silver dollar' piloted by Two-Face.

There's only three images in my Flickr currently, but hopefully I'll have a chance to post up a couple more in the next couple of days.

Can anyone help me out? I was re-reading the rules and I realized that I photographed my Podracer incorrectly, I took the photo with the Cockpit in the Back Left, instead of the Back Right. Is this a problem that can hurt me? Do I still have time to change it?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Not only that: your images are not through flickr so we wouldn't be able to insert them into the polls properly when the time comes and you're limited to one chance to enter. I'm sorry, but
- We will be VERY STRICT when it comes to submissions. Any entry not following the above guidelines will be automatically disqualified.
It's very important to read and understand all the rules before entering. As cool as your pod is, all I can say is better luck next time.

So there is no way I can edit my submission at all before the deadline?

I can't get the pictures to show up when I preview my entry! How do I upload images so that they work correctly?

From your flickr page: click the "Share This" button above the photo, then the "Grab the HTML/BBCode" link on the dropdown menu. Make sure BBCode is checked instead of HTML and then copy the code from box, and paste that into your forum reply. Don't add any additional code to it and it should work fine.

I had some issues when i tried to add my pics, I went on the chat room to get some help (Thanks Onions)
I tried everything but the only way i could get my pic on the forums was to right click it and get the http from properties
I added my flickr link on my post and added pics to the FTTB Flickr group to be on the safe side
i dont know why i had these issues, I think its something Flickr has changed as i had the same problem on a differnt forum.
Note : in the past i have posted pics on many forums including this one in the past with no problem

Great Podracer! No affence, but are you admiting that it's alive?

madLEGOman's entry: "The Pod Must Be Crazy"
Piloted By: The Bushman

Image
ThePodMustBeCrazy01 by madLEGOman, on Flickr

Risking Disqualification for not using his seatbelt the Bushman pilot of "The Pod Must Be Crazy" redies to race! I tried to tell him to buckle up, but he doesn't seem to understand me...

Image
ThePodMustBeCrazy02 by madLEGOman, on Flickr

This Pod comes fully loaded. Powered by two enormous cans of the most popular brand of soda on the planet. These are shaken to frightening levels by the green energy binders, to produce an unparalleled capacity of thrust which will leave most his oppents behind to savour the sweet foam of defeat. The pilot pod is fashioned from the classic Coke Bottle, the most useful thing in the world. Not only does it offer sleek lines and aerodynamics required for any winning podracer, but also provides luxurious ergonomic seating and unrivaled safety features (also the hardest thing in the world).

The Pilot of "The Pod Must Be Crazy" is none other than the Bushman! His signature driving style of standing on the hood of the pod backwards, bent over, gripping the steering wheel, while watching where he's going through his legs, has proven successful in the past, but may run the risk of disqualifying him here though. I've tried on numerous occasions to get him to use his seatbelt, but he just keeps smiling and puting his hand on my chest. I don't think he gets it.
