DB Tractor Range - Comments/wrong links etc

Post by admin » Mon Jan 19, 2009 3:05 pm

Hi all,

Just thought I'd stick this thread at the top for a while as a general collection point for any comments etc about the updated "Tractor Range" section

http://www.dbtc.co.uk/index.php?module= ... ew&pid=257

For those of you who don't check the front page!

Hi Alchad
in the 1290 picture if you click on the specs link it brings up the specs for a 1490. Looking good though keep it up.

Thank you Simon. Sorted that. As you will see we are short of the 1290 specs.

That was my mistake, not Alchad's. I did the page links from the 1212 downwards. :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

Hi me again if you click specs for the 1390 the page loops back.The specs that are missing are you looking for scans of original sales leaflets or from opps manuals or do they have to be typed out.

Thanks for that Simon, we need to be told of broken links like that. Corrected now.

As far as Spec. sheets are concerned, in a perfect world we would like them scanned from a brochure. Just the whole page but make sure that it is in a high definition because sometimes we have to "play" with them. i.e. Chop them in half vertically and put one on top of the other instead of how they appear in the brochure. This is so that they can be read. No point in putting them on the site if they can't be read clearly.

I hadn't thought of scans from ops. manuals. That might be an option. They certainly don't HAVE to be typed out but if that's the only way we can get them then we can handle those as well.

As far as photos goes they can be quite low defintion. The main thing is that they aren't "hedgerow" tractors

The first 1594 in the "1594's at work" section looks familiar :lol: :lol:
The 850imp & 950imp look familiar too :P

Well done David. Keep up the good work.

Is a sales brochure scanned at 6oo x 1200 good enough for inclusion.

Yes, but the main thing is that any spec. pages must be a good definition. At least 150 DPI, 300 is better. But always check the size of any file after you have scanned it. No point in sending anything that is 5-6 Mb. I am getting images at anything from 70k to 2Mb and they need to be somewhere in between. 70k is just about O.K. for photos but the spec. sheets will have to more than that or else we can't use them.

Send us something and we'll see how we get on. Thanks for the offer.

Yes please, And while you're at it any chance of some of the piccies out of there as well. Just a word on copyright if any of you are worried. CASE Tractors gave the DBTC full permission to use/copy any literature pertaining to David Brown as long as it is only used for Club purposes. Our present Chairman was a signatory on the document that gives us that permission.

So we are not doing anything illegal by copying brochures and placing them on this site.

All,

Just to second what David said, we (or at least me) would rather have my inbox blocked for a minute or so downloading a large file if it means we get the chance to have a good copy to work with.
