January 18, 2018

Removal of Facebook header code, like box and like buttons due to privacy concerns. Replaced by a single Facebook link (a static self-hosted graphic).—WikiSysop (talk)

May 11, 2015

Some CSS changes to template. Attempted to remove all table codes, but hampered by a <div clear:both> in two files which meant that the image gallery would not display as intended; table codes temporarily restored. WikiSysop (talk) 05:03, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

December 31, 2014

Three thousand models. The 3,000th was the Renault Espace V.—WikiSysop (talk) 12:37, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Disqus comment box and sharer added.

March 31, 2013

Noticed that the DynamicPageList extension was only picking up the two random entries on the front page from cars whose names began with A–D. Spent several hours before stumbling on the only page written in English and not technobabble (see this link). Now corrected. WikiSysop (talk) 12:53, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

February 18, 2013

Nigel Dunn installed Mediawiki 1.20, and put the old database on it. New skin from Paul Gu, tweaked as much as possible by Jack Yan to resemble the old. This also meant that the contents of the former Current Events page were imported.—WikiSysop (talk) 12:47, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

December 30, 2012

Probably worth mentioning: 2,000 models entered. Opel Kadett D is the lucky 2,000th. WikiSysop 05:59, 30 December 2012 (CST)

June 17, 2011

Added Facebook “like” button. WikiSysop 07:57, 17 June 2011 (CDT)

March 5, 2011

Added $wgGroupPermissions['*']['createaccount'] = false; to lock down Autocade. This prevents public user registrations, as illegitimate registrants adding spam were vastly outnumbering legitimate ones. As of today, users must apply to the sysop for a user account. WikiSysop 20:42, 4 March 2011 (CST)

March 4, 2011

Installation of AkismetKlik extension to combat rising frequency of spam. WikiSysop 17:50, 3 March 2011 (CST)

February 18, 2011

Fully removed home-page Mini JCW graphic and errant --> glyphs that were appearing on Opera, Chrome and Firefox 4 Beta. WikiSysop 17:52, 3 March 2011 (CST)

Change to PT Serif and PT Sans in stylesheet. WikiSysop 17:50, 3 March 2011 (CST)

Major changes to column width and other PHP hacks. Some font heading and caption changes. WikiSysop 08:57, 14 April 2009 (CDT)

January 6, 2009

Featured car, latest models and random models’ extensions added by Pete J. WikiSysop 08:58, 14 April 2009 (CDT)

December 4, 2008

Change to Constantia typeface in stylesheet as first choice. WikiSysop 07:00, 4 December 2008 (CST)

July 17, 2008

Five hundred models added. WikiSysop 04:59, 19 July 2008 (CDT)

July 16, 2008

Added various lines of code over last week to .htaccess and LocalSettings.php files due to excessive spamming. Most solutions found on web did not work, stopping spams only momentarily. Many spammers wiped each other’s entries, which was in part amusing. Latest fix seems to have stopped them for now. Talk pages locked off now (in theory), and registration now required even for them, since spammers outnumbered legitimate commenters. WikiSysop 03:35, 16 July 2008 (CDT)

June 8, 2008

Experimenting with different typeface families. WikiSysop 07:58, 8 June 2008 (CDT)

April 27, 2008

Times families in CSS for text. WikiSysop 05:09, 28 April 2008 (CDT)

March 20, 2008

Rejigged home page, added instructions. But we might need to rejig things more. WikiSysop 23:22, 19 March 2008 (CDT)

March 10, 2008

Ads—but how can we omit the home-page one? WikiSysop 20:29, 10 March 2008 (CDT)

March 9, 2008

Initial entries. WikiSysop 06:45, 9 March 2008 (CDT)

March 8, 2008

Uploaded MediaWiki software. WikiSysop 06:45, 9 March 2008 (CDT)
