Q: What are VinMoto groups? Are they clubs?

VinMoto isn't a club. No president, no 'meetings', no dues, no
members (just subscribers). If you have an idea for a ride or a gathering
or some activity post it to the list and see who else wants to join you. If
you need help in the way of parts, or local suppliers, or someone to remove
that Bultaco basket case from your garage in exchange for a pizza, post that
to the list too.

Q: What is the VinMoto Galleries?


Q: What are Virtual Garages?

A: A Virtual Garage is a web space for what is actually in you garage, workshop, or where ever your MC lives. Typically you'd want a picture of each MC you own, and anything else like your work bench, welder, lathe, etc. A picture of the garage is fine, and feel free to add a sub-album (nested album) of bikes you owned in the past or that cool shot of you sitting on your uncle's BSA back in the 70's.


Q: How do I get one?

First register and then send an email to your local list admin and they will create your garage and set the permissions so you can load albums and manage settings.


Q: How do I register?

Go here : http://springvinmoto.com/gallery/register.php or follow the links in the gallery to the top page and look for the 'REGISTER link in the upper right corner.


Q: What can I put in my Garage?

That depends how big it is and if you can convince your wife to park on the street. Seriuosly, the intent of the virtaul garage is a cyber tour of what you have in your 'meat-space' garage. Teh viewer should see photos of what they would see if they were visiting your garage or workshop area. The occasional temporary picture from your weekend ride is OK. Pictures from events belong in the Events section of the VinMoto Gallerys, see VMD, Garage Crawl, TrackDays, etc.


Q: Can I post in other albums?


Q: Are there any Gallery tools?

For those of you that don't know, there are few tools you can download to use with the gallery. I primarily use a Mac so I don't know a lot about the Windows tools. I have used Gallery Remote, works real well if you have more than one album. And I use the iPhoto plugin, simple.
For XP user you can try this link http://springvinmoto.com/gallery/publish_xp_docs.php it will enable you to upload from Windows Explorer.
There is also an RSS feed.


Gallery Remote: http://gallery.menalto.com/wiki/Gallery_RemoteOthers
Other tools: http://codex.gallery2.org/index.php/Gallery2:UserContributions#Utilities
Don't forget to name you new albums before you upload your photos, it will keep them from being numbered.
