As has become the norm, I have a bit of preamble before we get to the rules. But let’s get something out of the way first, there has been a modification to rule number one. And it has everything to do with perception. While the internetification of the Wheatonism “Don’t Be A Dick” is very clear in it’s meaning, the…
Before we get to the rules themselves. Let's start with some basic history. Oppo is a community which sprung up from the need for an offtopic area from Jalopnik. It has grown into its own over the years and is the largest, most populated, quickest moving community on Kinja. Oppo is made up of over 2700 authors from…
Hello friends. Let's discuss the issue of NSFW content as it pertains to Oppositelock.
As many of you may recall, a flood of AMA posts a while back (more than 20 AMA's in a single evening) resulted in us mods asking that you fellow members of Oppo temporarily suspend posting AMAs while we discussed the best way to handle them. The
secret brotherhood of the Stonecutters Oppo mods conferred, and at the…
As far as addictions go, at least this one is harmless and cheap (mostly free) albeit it must seem quite weird and downright sad for an outside observer.
An excerpt of an upcoming revision to the Oppo Handbook:
Kinja allows anyone with authorship rights on a forum to share and unshare comments and posts. As moderators, we occasionally unshare a post here or a comment there from Oppo. There are a myriad of reasons that we would do this, sometimes because Oppo has already recently covered something, other times because we do…
Here's my RX7 FC 1988 owner's manual that I found in a RX7 put into a junkyard. Took the manual for free. This was way before I had my FC.
A lot of new sub-blogs have popped up recently, and as I can't find an already-existing directory, I'm making one here. Please add any link I forgot in the comments.
On Sunday, I published this article. I used several images from Car and Driver's review of the E63. I figured a standard parenthetical reference of (Specs and images via Car and Driver) would be sufficient.
Slay Belle (moderator and owner of Groupthink and The Powder Room and generally all around badass extraordinaire) has created a post as a directory for the owners of various community forums in case there is a need to contact the moderators of these forums.
A repost for those who missed it yesterday.
When you embed a picture into a post and then see that the post has a missing image, resave the post (select edit, then hit save). 99% of the time this makes nibbles roll over and actually acknowledge your image. This works on comments and primary posts (of course, with comments you have a 15 minute window).
J.K. Trotter comes in peace. at the invitation of the moderators. JK was a great sport yesterday, and as far as I am concerned, totally earned a place here based on the responses to folks from Oppo/Jalopnik.
I never realized this because I read owner's manuals for stuff like maintenance schedules and vehicle features, not cover to cover, but I was surprised to find that some owner's manuals I'm looking at warn to not rely on the P setting and always engage the parking brake, even on level ground.
While we wait for the "official" rules of the OppositeLock Community to be finalized, I figured that it couldn't hurt to publish a semi-official guide that is for the general commenting community here.
We have had some great additions to the Oppo community recently! Just want to let you know we have some cool Oppo Tools to use.
