Oh well, better to be an evil man who can keep his free forum up.
You're just another Evil Man Baldwanna. Getting us all hooked then changing things. Were you a dope dealer in another lifetime

That would be the Racing Forum.

You're 5,500 posts behind for the live coverage thread. The most important info is pasted to the cliff notes thread.

For those who have been used to using the image attachments, http://www.imgur.com/ (I have no affiliation) is an easy place to upload pics if you just need one for a post here and there.

...keep up the great work!
You can still hotlink a picture from anywhere via the - button. Be it from the original site where you found it, from your smugmug or from any other image hosting site. The boss just turns off the "attach images" function, which uploads an image to the ADV server. This feature was already disabled in JM and in a couple of other subforums.

Copyright is a different thing, you should generally respect photographer's rights and give credit. And I sure hope we don't overload SmugMug, hosting photos is their job.

Clear as mud?

Well, monster threads like TB and WTF are actually a big load on the servers, so...

But Baldy is busy shopping for expensive solid state discs to keep the good ship ADV afloat, so madame Spears might still be saved..

Thanks for keeping ADV up and running Baldy. We all know how much the Dakar coverage is stressing the system.

Can't post an attachment

I am trying to attach a .gpx file in my reply to a thread "four corners ride" Missouri forum and I can not. That option has been turned off.

Have I been banned or limited in some way? I can not imagine what I did if that is the case.
