    Re: Harley Heaven

    This fantastic topic, which has kept readers enthralled with Sue's trip and particularly photos, and has led me to an idea.

    We have a few members on here who have travelled to the States on more than one occasion and would have a host of fabulous photos that might be of interest to the readers. In particular, Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender and various hotrod meets. I am thinking particularly of hotrodgirl, penoby, baby ruth and even myself.

    Perhaps we could have a forum that was dedicated to photo albums that could be listed by either country, or perhaps event. Or readers who are thinking of visiting somewhere overseas could request if anyone else has been to that country or function and ask for photos.

    I know I was desperate to view as many photos as possible before I headed off on my first trip to the States. It really helped to get a feel for the place and showed cars, attractions, clothes, etc.

    What do others think?

    Re: Harley Heaven

    Currently VicRock has limited web-hosting space for storage of images. That is why there is a limit on the size of files that can be uploaded as attachments to posts and why we use Image Shack for larger pictures.

    I am in the process of changing that however. Along with software upgrades there will be more web space made available so that members can have their own photo galleries on VicRock.

    These changes may take up to 3 months so in the mean time, besides using Image Shack, you can use the Flickr photo galleries (as used by Little Maria) to which you can link your forum posts. Information on having your own Flickr photo gallery can be found on the bottom of the “About Us” page here: http://vicrock.com.au/index.php?page=about

    Re: Harley Heaven

    I actually meant a link to either flickr or photobucket, rather than Vicrock storing the images. But we need a forum dedicated to photo galleries rather than just a single topic here and there.

    Re: Harley Heaven type topics in a new forum?

    There is no reason why we can't have a forum for Travel trips and photos. As it's your suggestion Longgonebaby, if you can provide me with a name and description for it I will get it organised.

    Re: Harley Heaven type topics in a new forum?

    Let's ask for everyone's suggestions on a name. I thought of 'Rockin' all over the World'. What do others want for a name for this forum?

    Talking Re: Harley Heaven type topics in a new forum?

    Hey Longgonebaby i like your title for the photo gallery, but i think there is a certain man that we know that might want to call it drinking all over the world even in car washes, what do you reckon. HA! HA! HA!

    Thumbs up Re: Harley Heaven type topics in a new forum?

    It would be good to use a '50s style Rock song title rather than a pop song title.

    Unfortunately all I can think of right now is "Travellin' Man".

    And of course this is another pop tune, but the era is right.

    But it might also upset those distaff members who are still hung up on supposed gender issues.

    "I rocked over Italy and I rocked over Spain" - How about "Ubangi Stomp" for the Rockin' Travel section, just to be a bit oblique?

    You betcha.

    Smile Re: Harley Heaven type topics in a new forum?

    Good suggestions to-date.

    Wanna suggest few more - "Rockin' & Travelling Tales", "Rockers' Trip Talk" or just simple "Trip Talk" and maybe "Jetaway Show & Tell" ............ not very exciting names, are they?

    I have a Little Richard compilation with "Dancing All Aound The World".

    He wrote it in the mid 60s but it has the 50s beat.

    and then there is always Bill Hayley and the Comets "See You Later Alligator" LOL

    Re: Harley Heaven type topics in a new forum?

    We could also have a separate board within this forum called 'Rock This Town' and it could be a place to put pics taken out and about in Melbourne. As it is lots of us bring our camera to gigs and take pics of people, so it would be kinda cool to see your picture up on 'Rock This Town' with a caption of who it was and where it was taken.

    Kind of a Who's Who in Melbourne Town!

    Some time soon I want to go to Scotland; it is the Celtic aura of my blood calling.

    I have just started E Mailing R'n'R Clubs in the UK for info about dancing, dance comps and organisation matters. (The VRRDA did endorse Dave & Hayley's, 2005 State Champions, Rockabilly Tour of the World and lost contact with them somewhere between Ireland and Holland.)

    A R'n'R travel section would be an excellent addition to Vic Rock.

    Mel why not call it "The Rest of the World"? After all Victoria is where-its-at in the known universe for 50's style R'n'R music and dancing.

    Re: Harley Heaven type topics in a new forum?

    you just have to throw the idea around until a suitable name surfaces or
    whom ever wants to start it - with there own caption.....
    "the rest of the world " doesn`t have that sort of ring to it robe (no offence intended)
    or maybe i`m not 'with' it, to say, Victoria rather than Melbourne, goes with' of course' Vicrock,
    although i do think it is a good idea to have an addition,
    maybe just start up a thread with the header you guys decide on then just keep adding to it,
    videos, as have been posted can also be submitted along with photos,
    i guess,
    but what ever is decided i would luv to participate!

    Re: Harley Heaven type topics in a new forum?

    You know......we could just call the forum 'Gallery' or 'Photo Gallery'. That way whoever starts a topic can call it anything they want.

    How does that sound? Simple solution?
