== Pictures as wheel types ==
  +
Using pictures for the wheel types looks great, But lets pretend for a moment that you (or I) do not know what the wheels on the Super TH or the selections versions are called. I already know what they look like from the main picture. So this 2nd picture of them does me no good at all. These pictures offer little help in understanding what they are called. which is the main purpose of this site.
  +
  +
I have been trying to figure out a solution for this, but am stumped. A click through of the image to the proper wheel page, instead of a larger version of the image, would be good. But i cannot find a way to do that. Any thoughts? [[User:Sinnin|Sinnin]] 07:36, February 27, 2010 (UTC)

2 thoughts, it would be good if the names of the wheels matched the name of the file - right now they don't. Short of fixing them all, maybe the discussion side of the individual wheel pages could be used to show offical names and nicknames or aka's. Maybe even a history of sorts on the wheel.

There are MANY casting changes that I think should be "documented" besides what's already been done. If there were a really good way to do it here I would probably dig in and start the ones I know of - namely the Fore Wheeler, Scorchin Scooter and Pony Up.

What's your take on how "cars" with multiple castings and/or casting changes should beorganized? Year or cast?

:My preference would be to list everything by the year it first came out, in that order. If a casting came out one way first, list it first, if it got changed later, then list it as being later. After all, that's how most things are catergorized everywhere else. I'd like to see a wheel page that showed them in the order they made their first appearance.

And there'e lots of wheel pictures needed.

I like the way the PR5 wheel page is shaping up.

Casting change

I didn't realize the bed and gate had changed until the 2006 ones hit. Then in 07 the selections one hits with the old bed? Makes me think both molds are still usable...?

I'm still missing a few. And among them may be some transition variations.

Pictures as wheel types

I already know what they look like from the main picture. So this 2nd picture of them does me no good at all.

Not sure what you mean by main picture and second picture.

And this...

 

A click through of the image to the proper wheel page, instead of a larger version of the image, would be good.

 

If you click on the wheel, it takes you to the file

 

File:Wheel Bling2a AGENTAIR.jpg

at the bottom of that page is a link to [[5SP BLING]] as a page that links to that picture.

2 thoughts, it would be good if the names of the wheels matched the name of the file - right now they don't. Short of fixing them all, maybe the discussion side of the individual wheel pages could be used to show offical names and nicknames or aka's. Maybe even a history of sorts on the wheel.

Maybe if the img tag were were set to ?click through? to the discussion side of the image?
