Minimal frame is my vote
Minimal, or perhaps minimally themed.
Minimal frame. I could do something a little more busy/car specific, but the themed frame doesn’t really speak to me, maybe try punching up the headlights/taillights to make it more obviously car? Though as other people said the large frame might work when it’s the primary content.
Minimal Frame: Less bandwidth, plus more screen-estate to see all the age spots.
I would also love to see user-submitted videos every week, bi-weekly or every month? Because honestly, if they ever figure out what’s wrong with Autopian members, I sure AF hope they can’t fix it! ?
Minimal frame is the easiest to view, but the full frame / TV-VCR combo is deeply on brand. Maybe ‘minimal frame’ can be used most of the time, but for premieres or when the video is the primary content of the article the full frame could be used? I feel like it has a place.
Themed player looks great. Exciting stuff ahead!
Themed Frame gets my vote!
Minimal or thin themed please
Thanks for the Memberful update!
Definitely interested in the off road classes! My “new” ‘12 Frontier 4×4 needs to get out on the trails!
Minimal frame is my vote. I mostly read this site on my tablet, which is signed in. I randomly have 3 to 15+ minute downtimes at work waiting for equipment to cycle during which I’ll check in on my phone(not signed in). Often in places with limited connectivity. I left the old site permanently a couple years before Autopian started in large part because it wouldn’t load all those ads in the bowels of a mechanical room somewhere. Then, when it finally did load, all that jerky movement distracted and made reading unpleasant. I was happy to throw some money your way to avoid that crap.
Hey, how about something that looks like an old Jeep fold-down windshield as a frame?
