    An idea briefly entered my head then quickly left again so thought I'd pop it in here lol.

    I was thinking about the famous reliability and longevity of Hondas so wouldn't it be cool for the forum to recognise members whom have such vehicles in their possession.

    How about a badge or merit on or below the avatar of the good folks on here with older Hondas, maybe starting at 10 years (or 15) with a basic merit, 15 years, 20yrs, 25yrs etc maybe colour coded along the lines of bronze, silver, gold, platinum or whatever seems 'best' and logical.

    I guess it might be too much work to implement such an idea but thought I'd 'put it out there' as they say.

    Hmm, I'm trying to think how this would work. I think not just age but mileage too, as an 10 year old car running strong with 300,000 on it is impressive too (though not unusual for Honda). The thing is, using our badges system as it is at the moment would require us to manually apply the badges for every person with an older or high mileage Honda, that's a lot of messy work.

    What I have planned for above the signature area, once I get my head around the coding part of it, is listing member's garage vehicles like this:

    hk_garage-signature_mockup.

    That could also be reworked to include badges for "200k+ Miles" and "30+ Years Strong" etc. This definitely needs a bit more thought.

    Cheers for giving it some thought Leo.

    I thought it might be too complex to code if even possible, but creating extra admin for you or the guys is not obviously desirable from my own point of view.

    Lets see how the garage/signature goes :Hey:
