1. Major Announcement!
Our big announcement for this newsletter is that you now have a place to upload a sig pic for use on Delphi's forums! Just click on the "My Profile" link on the left side of our home page to view your member profile info.
At the very top of this page you will see a link that says "Change your member profile images". Click on this link and you will be taken to a new page where you can either point to another location
on the web where you have your photo stored, or you can browse to a pic on your computer and upload it to our site. Keep in mind that this will replace the primary pic you have now so if you
keep uploading pics it will be overwriting the previous pic each time. You can display multiple pics by pointing to more pics stored elsewhere on the web by adding the HTML to the box at the bottom of this page,
but only one pic can be uploaded to our server at a time for use in your Member Profile. You can also link directly to your member profile page more easily now by using the following format:
BIG UWE back in San Francisco
after his vacation to Germany.
For instance, you can go to:
http://www.cruisercustomizing.com/D-Train to view D-Trains "My bike and Accessories" page.
This makes it very easy for you to show people your bike and all of your accessories in one place and read your reviews of those products. If anyone asks you about something you have installed
on your bike just tell them "Hey, just go to www.cruisercustomizing.com/my_user_name to see all of the accessories I have on my bike and what I think of them"!! We think this is pretty darn significant! There are
so many discussions going on now about "Where can I get a free website to store my sig pic?" that we have decided to provide this service to you PLUS the ability to showcase all of your accessories in one place! Pretty cool, huh?
You can also get the HTML code that you need for your sig pic automatically so that when someone clicks on your sig pic it will take them to your "Member Detail" page here. We create the HTML code for you so you don't have to be a computer expert! Once you have uploaded your sig pic to our site you will
automatically be taken to your "My Bike & Accessories" page. At the top of this page, right next to the "Visits" counter is a link that says "Create Links". If you click on this you will be taken to another page where you will see several different logos to choose from,
or you can choose the pic you uploaded to your profile. Just click on the link that says "Create HTML" below the one you want to use for your sig pic and a window will pop-up showing you the HTML that you need to put into your sig preferences on Delphi. You can do that by clicking on your own name above any post that is either FROM you or TO you to view your Delphi profile.
From there you will see a button that says "My Prefs". Click on that button and you will see a place to define your "Personal Signature". Just copy and paste the HTML we gave you into this area, select "Contains HTML" below the box, and save your changes. If you are a "Delphi Plus" member just select the "Source" button below this area before you paste the HTML into there,
then select "WYSIWYG" to see if it looks correct. Then scroll down and click on the "Submit" button to save your changes. From then on every message you post on Delphi will display the pic and link that you chose.
Thanks a million guys & gals!
Dennis & BIG UWE

3. Newest Features added:
We have recently begun to start forming partnerships with several accessory suppliers and other motorcycle related companies that our members can get great deals from.
We have also decided to recognize our members that have entered the most reviews by displaying the "Top 10 Reviewer" graphic shown below next to their names wherever their names appear on the website.
A special thanks goes out to the following people for making our first "Top 10 Reviewer" list!
Dale Zastoupil (92Merc)
Leonardo Ramirez (MEXRIDER)
Dennis Welch (D-Train)
Carol LaFosse (C99ace)
Ron Frey (Tailgunner)
AL Silverman (uncleAL)
We are also recognizing those members who have made cash donations to support our site by displaying the graphic below
next to their name wherever it appears on the website.
Thanks to these Members who have already helped us out with their Donations:
Phil Stewart (stewaps)
Marilyn & Paul Wilkie (wilkiepup)
The site is really taking off. In the 11 days since we last sent out the newsletter we have gone from 343 members to 579 members! WOW! We have also gone from 880 reviews to more than 1150 reviews! We have also added a lot of new products and some new features to the site and have received a few more donations to help us out.
- We have finally added the "Password Reminder" functionality. If you have forgotten your password (happens to the best of us ...) we will email it to you right away.
Just enter the email address on the login page that you used when you created your account and click on the button that says "email password" and it will be sent to you.
Also, there is no need for you to worry about the security of your password. The password will only be sent to the email address that is entered, so if someone else enters your email address
to try to get your password emailed to them it will NOT be sent to them, it will be sent to YOU!
- As previously mentioned, to show our appreciation we are now spotlighting our "Top 10 Reviewers" and site supporters by displaying a graphic next to their names.
- We have received many requests to add an image upload feature to the member profile. As described above this is now possible.
- We also have made it easy for you to create a signature pic on Delphi by creating the HTML code for you automatically.
- We also have made your profile page's web address easier to remember by letting you simply go to:
- If you have a website that you want to link back to us, we have created for you several different sized banners and a "Create HTML" tool for you to use to make it as easy as possible for you to do so.
- On your "My Bike and Accessories" page we have added a "hit counter" so you can see how many people have visited your page.
