File Uploads Locked
Due to several security issues and program vulnerabilities, ALL uploads (including avatars, attachments, photos in the image and classified section, etcetera) are off-limits. This should not last more than a day or so. If you have an avatar or image that you want to display, please LINK TO it for the time being.

I'm not sure about other websites, but we're being constantly targeted for hack attempts. As ridiculous as it sounds, we may just need to completely close uploads altogether. In that event, instead of uploading things like avatars to THIS server, you'd upload them somewhere else on the internet and simply LINK TO them. It's not really a big deal but I understand it's very convenient to simply upload them to cadillacowners.com...

We're experiencing quite a bit of SLOW load time due to hacking issues. It's been very difficult, time-consuming and costly for me to keep fighting these problems. There are many other things that I need to keep up on and if these issues can be resolved by simply NOT allowing uploads, then that may be my only choice...

Sorry for the inconvenience...

There is an update of info on that thread, and there are hackers in Egypt trying to upset our balance with anti-American crap. I'd say this is high time to become a supporting member for anyone who loves this site and wants to fight these buggers. :thumbsup:
