NEW FEATURE: Post Like system!!!

At long last, we have successfully implemented a comprehensive post rating/like system. With casual readers and visitors vastly outnumbering frequent posters, it is not always apparent to users that others are reading, enjoying and grateful for their posts. If you are too shy to post and want to express your thanks, now you can!

Liking a post is easy - click this thumbs up in the top right hand corner of the post: Image

Can I encourage everyone to use this new feature enthusiastically and liberally and be sure to go back to your favourite old topics and like old posts. This will help build up useful user 'like' profiles and give credit to the users who has provided so much value to this community. This in turn helps guests and newcomers sort useful answers and posters from others.

This goes to regular forum lurkers especially - please show your appreciation with a 'like'!

Featuring:
  • Liked post counters in every user profile (given & received)
  • Liked post leaderboard accessible from the index and Quick Links Menu
  • Receive notifications when your post is liked, configurable from the User Control Panel (in forum notification and/or email notifications available or off)
  • You can remove a like if you made a mistake by clicking the undo button where the thumbs up used to sit (but the user will be notified)
  • Plus more

Just tripped over this today so I thought I'd update the thread.

Two tone grey/silver code is QK for 1984, and JR for 1985 (both the same.....Tornado Silver K8 & Sunbeam Silver K3).

The two-tone brown/gold code is QY (Antique Gold P7 and Havana Brown T5).

You've now answered the question I asked in 2008. My S3 was two tone silver. Cheers Steve. :D

Mazda had other yellows around that time though:

YQ Yolk Yellow 1978

YR Thunder Yellow 1978

YW Space Yellow 1980

Spark Yellow was also known as "Sparkling".
