Owner Registry Update

The recent changes to PackardInfo have now extended to the Packard Owner's Registry. Big Kev, rather than resting on his laurels, is updating many aspects of this fine Website. Kudos to you Kev!

The changes encompassed in the Registry are:

-Restyling and cleaning up the format.

-Some options have been renamed and a few more added.

- A NEW Status field has been added so a Car can be seen to SOLD, JUNKED, SCRAPPED, etc. The default is CURRENT OWNER and the is what all the entries are currently set to. Once the Status field is changed to anything other than CURRENT OWNER, then that entry cannot be edited by the original poster, this to lock the record for posterity. By this Forum Members are encouraged to actually add their VIN and Engine Serials. That will allow us to automatically tie records together for the same car. So to help with this, a tick box next to the VIN and Engine Serial number to allow a Forum Member to show or hide those numbers when others are viewing it. That way the data is still available to the website behind the scenes but is not on public display.

- A NEW field for Theft Proof Number has been added. Similarly this has a tick box next to it to permit the Forum Member to show or hide those numbers when others are viewing it.

I encourage ALL Forum Members to review the Owner Registry entry for their Packard/s and include VIN and Engine Serial numbers which are currently missing. For those not wanting to display this information, it's simply a matter of "unticking" the box.

Similarly, get in there and add your Theft Proof Number to your entry, and "untick" the box if need be.

The more Theft Proof Numbers, VIN's and Engine Serial Numbers there are, I'm sure Owen_Dyneto will be more than happy. O_D has an ongoing research project analysing these numbers, so you can assist in his researh by providing yours.

If I can assist with anything pertaining to the Registry please contact me by PM or by Emailing ozstatman@gmail.com

I also added fields to capture the original delivery Dealership and Delivery Date.

Hopefully, this info can be tied back to the dealership list as people include this information with their Registry entry.

Hi Mal; I tried to make some changes in my registry and lost picture for my 28, i was able to replace with new picture for the 28. Tried to upgrade the 42 and also lost picture and when I tried to replace it the outcome was up side down and could not correct. I hope the problem can be Big Keved. I would advise members not to make changes till fixed. keep up the extra effort that you do. Jon
P.S. some of the text for what had been done to cars was scrambled and unreadable.

Hmmm... I'm not seeing that and I edited several cars last night to clean up things. Only way the picture could drop is if the original picture was not a jpg and so when edited it remove it.

Just a comment, when editing, the picture is not displayed, but it is there. It would only be a problem if after editing and saving your changes, the picture disappears. So perhaps it's just a perception problem when editing since the picture is not displayed.

As far as the 'scramble text', the old control allowed for unsafe html content. So that all had to be stipped out. It should just be plain text field now. So some adjustment may be needed.

One of the advantages to having all the info for your car in the registry, is the tie in with the decoder. Now when I search my VN, it shows be my exact engine serial, and paint/interior info:

Jon,

See Kev has responded.

However, regarding the photos, if still no joy, I could try to add them to your Registry entries if you can send them to my email - ozstatman@gmail.com. No guarantees but worth a shot.

In conjunction with the changes made to the Owner's Registry I have updated the FAQ - "Add your Packard to the Owner Registry" to account for the changes and additional fields now available. Link to Updated FAQ.
