|Although you may spend most of your time browsing only in the Mk1 section of IMOC, there are other bits outside this area that may be of interest!
The Mk1 section on IMOC is reserved for general discussion of the Mk1 MR2. Any sales and wanted adverts are kept in their own relevant sections:
Parts for Sale
MR2s for Sale
(It's recommended you check this section every couple of weeks to see if a new group buy has been initiated by someone)
(If you have a stash of spare parts somewhere please check this section every once in a while to see if you can help out a fellow Mk1 owner.)
There was also a good thread on places online where you can purchase Mk1 parts - Click here to view this thread.
Other sections you may be interested in:
Events section (For the most up to date and comprehensive information on events.)
Past Events section
You can also click on the calendar link at the top right of each page (with the downwards facing arrow next to it). This will bring up a small calendar showing the weeks upcoming events. Click on the calendar icon next to the calendar title and the whole month will be displayed.
There is now a Trader feedback section where you can see peoples opinions on various MR2 related traders.
IMOC has an MR2 Knowledge base. This is constantly having more articles added so if you have a query please check here to see if the topic is covered - and if you feel confident in a job that you've done and no article is there, please write one!
Though most Mk1 posts are kept to the Mk1 section, there are occasionally Mk1 related threads posted in the other sections of IMOC (such as General or ICE and Security).
News on updates to IMOC and forum downtime is given in the Site News and Announcements section.
IMOC has its own premium membership, providing you with additional benefits and discounts. Plus you gain access to a Premium member section (become a premium member using the link at the top of each page).
And of course, if you ever get really bored... there's always the Off Topic section!
IMOC Forum How-tos
How to Post Pictures
There is a guide available here.
Note: There is currently no way to upload images/photos directly to the forum, instead, you have to use a site such as Photobucket, Imageshack or Flickr. You can create an account for free with each of these which will make uploading more than one image at a time easier. They all have tools to make posting to a forum easier as well. Essentially, you upload your image to their server, and then create a link to the image(s) on this site.
Hope that helps!
How to get an Avatar and Signature
IMOC Premium members get the option to have their own avatar and signature accompanying their posts (note: signatures only appear with the first of your posts on a page). If you would like to be able to display these, please support the club and become a premium member. Not only will you get these, but you'll also benefit from club discount schemes only available to premium members.
Once you've signed up for premium membership (using the page linked to with the links at the top of the page) then go to your profile (again, there is a link for this at the top of every page). About halfway down you'll find the Signature box in your Profile Information section. Avatars have their own control panel which is at the bottom of the profile page.
Please adhere to the signature and avatar rules. Signatures should be no greater than three lines in length and any images should be kept within a width of 460 pixels and a height of 60 pixels. Avatars should be no greater than 115x115 pixels and 12KB in filesize.
