As mentioned earlier, we are improving the appearance and content of Ride Asia.
One of our tasks is to improve the Home Page.
To that end we are wanting to display a collection of photos which represent riding in Asia (and/or any international rides you have done).
We invite you to submit a selection of photos from your ride reports for Administrator Bob to use in our Home Page.

Just post them here in this thread and Bob will be able to use a selection of what comes in.

Thank you.

(I'll get the ball rolling with some pics from Thailand, Laos and Burma/Myanmar)

Shit I only have 20.000 pictures lol
Would you like a selection of ones from China.
So I post the correct ones.
What is needed .... is it best to have a bike in the pictures or just some good scenic pictures?

Before we jump to any tasks that might not be relevant, we need to ask ourself:
What is Ride Asia? Is Ride Asia the forum or is Ride Asia something PLUS the forum?

If Ride Asia IS the forum, than let the forum be the home page.

If the RA forum is just a part of a bigger Ride Asia entity, than the home page should reflect that entire entity.
And in that case the home page should not just be a collage of pictures by forum members, but it should reflect that bigger RA scope?!

Wow i guess that means your not supplying any pictures Marcel :sipping we are not trying to split the atom here, just thought it was a good idea to ask the forum members to offer some pictures for the front end of the forum.

Good idea IMO Bob.

Well I spent shit loads of time mate on this, but please remember I am in that land of the Great Firewall
So youtube is a NO NO ok.

See what you can do with the linked video, but I do have 3 more, so let's see what happens and if some of the pictures are useful.

The Faces of Asia.

Yes the new front page looks interesting now, called "The Faces of Asia"

Thanks for posting Bob.

If I may suggest, it does not take long to put together this type of picture video presentations.
Maybe have another called "The views of Asia".

And change it every few months or so?

Tha hard parts as you found out was getting all the pictures you needed to make such a good picture video.
So maybe as new picture are posted on RA which is stunning, just save them to a file on your PC Bob?

I've always liked this photo of Bob and some other bloke



This one - of BignTall's helmet on a soldier at Pol Pot's house is great - but maybe a bit blurry. I'm sure we have more from there



Elephant photos are good



Worth getting some Indo in

Shall do Bob. I've been going through my ride photos, transferring to Smugmug before Photobucket shut me down.... which is soon. Some good portraits emerging.

Actually, she's a photographic model... not a hooker. I saw the shoot and snuck one off myself. Hell, I even got in the shoot



Not sure we should call Orangutan "monkeys"? Yeah, the one in Timor Leste, definitely a monkey.

Looks better Bob.
Is there a code you can chuck in there to make the photos cycle through on random?
