In the past, ARMCA has utilized FTP for collecting rider photos for our awards banquet program…unfortunately, FTP isn’t a very user-friendly thing and most people don’t even have the software to do it. In a pinch we’ve tried receiving photos via email, but as you might guess there’s perils there too, with spam filters and other mysterious things happening to messages as the travel the ether.
This year we’re going to try something new, which we feel will not only be easier for our members to manage, but also will automatically create an online showcase of our best & brightest! Over on our forums, there’s a new category with a forum for each sport – and within each of those is a forum for each class. There’s an instructional post on the forums to help you through the process…but thankfully due to the forums software upgrade we just made, posting a photo is easier now via a drag & drop process.
So when you get a letter from us in the mail (they’re going out soon) telling you that you’ve won an award, head on over to the forums and post your photo – along with maybe a quick note thanking your sponsors for example. Then tell all your friends, family, sponsors, etc. about it – and they can check out all our award winners too!
As always, if you have any questions about using the forums…or if you’ve forgotten your login info…send an email to Webmaster@ARMCA.org and we’ll help you figure it out!
