I looked at the Calendar, but it's empty! Chances are you were looking at the wrong calendar. When you are logged in, you can look at one of two calendars on the site, your personal calendar, and the LVMOC Club Events calendar. The club calendar is located in the RESOURCES block on the left and is titled LVMOC EVENT CALENDAR. You may also find the club calendar in the CLUB INFORMATION menu in the blue menu bar. You personal calendar is under the USER CONTROL PANEL in the RESOURCES block or the MY ACCOUNT drop down menu in the blue menu bar.. If you see an event that you are interested in attending, you can add it to your personal calendar.
Can I store all of my family pictures on the gallery?
We'd rather you keep your photo's Miata related, but nobody is going to stop you from having a few pics of the newborn baby, grandchild, puppy, new water heater or for sale items stored at the site. Please delete those after the item sells. Web space is not unlimited and we appreciate your help. Pictures may be resized for posting, but the original picture is saved and displayed when the downsized photo is clicked on. Still, you might want to downsize first to save upload time. And remember, we cannot guarantee the safety of your photos, so please retain the originals in a safe place on your system. Best size for postinf is 550 pixles wide, best size for uploading, assuming compressed JPG is 2048 pixels wide
Will you sell or share my email address or any personal information?
My forum avatar - are their any restrictions?
Uploaded avatars need to be 118 pixels by 118 pixels or smaller. If you need help in sizing your picture or uploading contact an officer or webmaster .
I want out! Please stop emailing me!
Sure. Just send an officer or webmaster a note and we'll take you off our list. Or, you can click on the CANCEL EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS in the blue bar that runs across the top of the page.
