    With these forums all you have to do is paste the full look to the video and it will auto embed it for you. For example: pasting https://youtu.be/lTo2Yrhrjdg Will automatically convert it to this: After you paste and it converts it, if you would rather it be a link there is a note that comes up at the bottom of the text field that you can click to turn it back into a link.

    Following Topics and Forums

    With the new forums instead of "subscribing" to a topic or forum its now "Following". It's the same thing just a different title. This option is visible while on desktop or tablet, when it is on mobile phone size it hides the option. It shows up in the same place for both forums and topics. When you click on this it will expand with some more options: If you click the Change how the notification is sent it will take you to the Notification Settings where you can change your defaults for how your receive notifications, by on site notifications in your notification center or through email. If at any point you change your mind about following something, or even just want to update the settings for the one particular item, all you have to do is click the Following button again to bring the options back up.

    How do I update my signature?

    You want to go to your account settings http://dcmetrominis.org/forum/settings/ Signature upload an image type in the text if the image is too large double click on it and you can adjust the size. I also created a thread just for testing signatures. My first signature wasn't what I wanted to I used that thread till I liked it.

    General Club FAQ

    • You love your MINI. • You will have a home where you can chat for hours about MINIs; we won’t get tired of it. • You will have a group of like minded people that want to go out and motor in their mighty MINIs • You will have a team of fellow MINIiacs that can assist, advise and help out with maintenance, modifications and general questions about the workings of your MINI Why does the club charge yearly dues? • DC Metro MINIs is incorporated as a non-profit. We’re characterized as a club with the IRS, so we don’t accept charitable donations, but we are a non-profit. This makes a difference in any liability you may incur when you participate in club events. In the unlikely event that there is a situation that results in a lawsuit the club has insurance and the corporation protects the individual members from being named as directly liable. You still need to comply with all state laws regarding the personal ownership and use of your vehicle. • We have expenses to maintain the website and it’s infrastructure. • We host a yearly picnic where we pay for the burgers, dogs and veggie burgers • Members can attend the annual meeting where we buy you a nice lunch You guys are really organized, are you really that serious? We are a non-profit to help protect our members from personal liability issues. In order to maintain our non-profit status the federal government requires that we have a board of trustees with officers and bylaws. We also have a lot of other organizational structure that we must comply with. However, underneath all that we’re really a fun group that wants to just get out and motor! What kinds of events are there? • Our events are member hosted and we have some very creative members. Feel free to look through our events forum to see. Most common events are: • Driving, where we go out motoring together and then eat • Meet and Greets and dealerships where they feed us free snacks • We even go away on overnight events where we motor and go eat • Sometimes, we just go out and eat What's a MINIac? • If you own a MINI, love that MINI, maybe named the MINI and like to motor in it: You might be a MINIac • If you feel the need to chat about your MINI, mods, other people’s MINIs; You might be a MINIac • If you made a picture of your MINI your Facebook profile pic; You probably are a MINIac • If you have dressed to match your MINI: YOU ARE A MINIac I got a card on my MINI, what's that about? It’s a compliment from one of our club members. They like your MINI, they are hoping that you want to come out and motor with us. They’re letting you know we exist and are here for you. Do we really wave to each other? Just wave! Eventually you’ll run into a MINIac and we’ll wave back. Then the joy that ensues will make your day! Please come to the forum and share that joy with us!

  13. DCMM was founded in 2003, by Mike and Donna Kacmarcik, Jonathan and Carolyn Miller, Mark and Debbie Vaughn, Mike Whitley and John DeCrema. We started out with a very small group of about 15 members. We used a Yahoo site as a communications base for the new club. The Tortilla Factory, in Herndon VA, became our clubhouse. The first really big gathering we had was at The Dragon in the spring of 2003 for The MINI Mountain Hop, where we joined other MINI lovers for an informal weekend of motoring fun. Needless to say, we attracted quite the crowd in rural Robbinsville NC, which had never seen a MINI, much less the 25 that were parked at the Microtel. Since then we have grown into a robust club with regular activities and an active forum. We're able to offer our members vendor discounts and we host a lot of fun events
