How do you arrive at 1933?

Why are these things never explained?

Have you cut the numberplate from the picture?

If so, why?

If made in 4:3 (still a valid format 15 years ago) then this would be the result when aired in 16:9

I assume the numberplate is visible in the movie but AlexDJ hasn't been back to post thumbnails since it was validated.

1) A lot of cars of this era looked quite the same but had different engines, tens and twelves or four or six cylinders under very similar sheet steel. In these cases a view of the plate can sometimes be the only way to work out exactly what you are looking at.

2) If this database aspires to becoming a serious document of record, then it is up to all of those contributing to provide the best information available, in order to provide an accurate identification of the subject vehicle.

Nine Kestrel, I think, but far from certain.

@johnfromstaffs

1933 comes from the plate, which is APU54 and is visible in another shot in which the plate was readable but the car not enough clear for a main pic. The current main pic is not cut.

As I'm not an admin I cannot provide further informations in comments until the page is validated. I usually do it after validation posting as many additional pics as I can

Perhaps the management needs to revue its modus operandi then, if it wishes to promote accuracy.

As you can see from above, it took less than three minutes to obtain an accurate identification once the number plate became available, granted, the linked picture was on the first page I looked at.

I try my best to be accurate, but to say that prewar Rileys are a minefield looking for a place to explode is to understate the case.

The possibility of posting additional pics before validation would be really great indeed

2019-11-02 11:06

We agree on that point then.🖖

The comments are simply locked until the pictures have been reviewed by an admin, so it may take a while for the person to return, possibly after a nap, and post extra views.
The only time you get instant thumbnails is an admin's contribution.

Bearing in mind some of the duff identifications that have appeared recently, what do the admins do?

You were offered admin rights before jfs, you may still have an edit button and delete the duffest identifications.

Unfortunately we can not read minds, so when the poster adds info, like "1933", but is unable to make a comment why, we can either delete the info or take their word that there is a reason for that. So when I validated this pic, I assumed that Alex had a reason, which he did. Unfortunately he didn't come back to the board until about a day later, which make sense, as I'm 5 or 6 hours behind him and he was probably sleeping or working when I validated. The validation list has been long the past week or so. It took me all day to almost clear it and it's already filling up again.

As far as ID's, we try our best but we don't know every single detail of every single model from every country in the world. We rely on the posters for ID's and not everyone is reliable, so sometimes bad ID's happen.

I have never been offered admin rights, a suggestion was made privately that such offer had been discussed, but I did not take the understanding from what was said that this constituted an offer. Had I realised that, a polite letter thanking the admin team for its kindness, but declining the offer would have been the result. However, I am always here to help if necessary, in an informal r˘le.

Thanks also for the insight into what the process requires.
