    Hey Joey, this Richard "Not Right" from Virginia calling. I have recently had some anodized aluminum body trim restored. To me, it is a rather amazing story and I would like to share it with the membership. However, I have some questions about the site system, so I have come to you, the Guru.., before I start my article. They are: 1. I have roughly 12 to 15 photos to attach to my Article Thread......is that too many for the system? 2. How can I get this article posted to all the different branches of For C Bodies.., Slab Siders, Fuselagers and the rest.....and for that matter...to the For B Bodies and A Bodies and E bodies and Pick Up Truckers? -Would I just have to write the article over for each club and its sub groups?..... or .....is there a way I can "send to all"? ...or do you have a magic wand that you can use to get this accomplished?
    Thank you for your time as well as for all you do for us members. You've got your hands full! -Not Right ...forever wrapped around the axle... ps-I wonder why more members don't take advantage of our Membership Map? It's really a pretty neat thing.........and B Bodies doesn't have one anymore! 12/1/18

    I would suggest that you just make a thread in either the restoration or the exterior/paint & body forums. Post your pictures in two posts to allow for the number of pics. Maybe Joey has a better idea.

    Um, well. 15 photos should be fine.

    Membership maps never work. They sound great, and once implemented they get ignored. Happens every time.

    No, no magic wand or send to all. Just write up your article in a particular category... like 300rag said.

    Okay, great! Thank you for your replies, both of you. So, you don't think I would catch more eyes by posting it to, say, the general Slabside forum as opposed to posting it at restoration or exterior paint & body? To be honest, when trying to find or figure out something, I have never gone to either of those sub forums. I have just put my question out to the masses in the Slab or Fuselage forums. I guess that may indicate my ignorance or laziness...but I always get immediate results that way. I have posted a few in the "parts wanted" sub forum only to be left feeling like I wrote a letter and mailed it by throwing it underneath a manhole cover! Your advice is very appreciated. Thanks guys, Not Right.

    Hard to say which forum would draw the most interest
