Introducing: Garage This or That!

Very happy to introduce a new feature to Forever Pontiac!



A new feature has been added to complement our Garage application! Calling it "Garage This OR That"! Basic principle of the application is that 2 random individual's cars (Pontiacs most likely :D) will be displayed and the user of the "game" has to chose between the two cars by clicking the "vote for this" or "vote for that" buttons (see screenshot below). The number of times a user is voted on, or win a "this or that" match, is recorded and the Top 10 are displayed at the bottom of the page.



I developed this today and there may be some little bugs so please feel free to report them in here but as a whole it is working and I hope you guys like it!



Make sure your Garage info is up-to-date as we are pulling the data straight from it :D. You can do so by going to the Garage by clicking the Garage link in the Navigation or going to: http://foreverpontiac.com/garage/



After your information is up to date, CHECK OUT GARAGE THIS OR THAT @: http://foreverpontiac.com/Garage-TOT/

When I vote on a "this or that" another one shows up. Do you just keep going or do they stop eventually? Also, I had one where the same car was in "this" and in "that".

It keeps going. The same car shouldn't be but the same person could potentially accidently have added their car twice, we ha e no control over that :(

Its weird, some cars seem to come up all the time and other almost never. Is it formulated so a users car is less likely to show up if they are voting? I haven't seen my Phoenix once but then again, I have seen the Super A 3 times haha

Nope, completely random. I did remove users with no pictures but that's it.

Yeah it prompted me to vote for this black camaro from Florida 8 times. Fortunately there were other cars available for voting.

Not really but it was a toss up between that and a Farmall tractor. I picked the tractor.
