GARAGE

 

Q: I tried adding a bike to my Garage, but because it was not listed, the site took me to Reviews. Why?

A: The Review system is the database of vehicles and products that feeds the Garage. As long as the make/model of vehicle is in our database, you can add a missing model year. If your make/model is NOT listed, we must add it to the vehicle database for you. You will be presented with a link to suggest an addition should this happen. We're adding vehicles regularly, so it will continue to improve.

 

 

REVIEWS

 

Q: I want to review a bike or product, but it's not in your system. Can I add either myself?

A: For products, absolutely. Click the "Add a Product" button from the Reviews page and you'll be asked to conduct a quick search, to make sure it's not already in the system. If not, just follow the on-screen prompts. You'll need the following elements to add a product:

 

1. Product Photo (your's or from the mfr's site work just fine).

2. Product Description (mfr's or resellers site are good).

3. Product MSRP.

 

For bikes, as long as the make/model is in our database, you can add in any missing model years. If the make/model is NOT in our system, you'll be presented with an opportunity in the process to suggest an addition.

I use iPhoto to include descriptions to my photos that is included as metadata in each photo file. I see that the descriptions are not includes or used when posting or uploading photos to an album on the site.  That means I need to repeat that effort and describe each photo once i create a member album in the Gallery.

 

Is there a way to have that data imported and used when the photo is uploaded?
