I'm no longer able to post attachments. "You may not post attachments."
I went to look at my attachments and I'm far from the limit. I went to my profile options and saw no place to turn on or off that feature. I haven't posted and lewd or pornographic pics to have it taken away from me.

Anybody have any ideas what may have happened? I guess I need to e-mail Sal. I'm lost without my pics.:crying2:

I don't think so. If they were mad they'd have kicked me off the forum. I've PM'd our Moderador, Reed, many times. I've donated to the Forum and to Reeds FAQ section. I contribute a lot ideas to this forum. I've helped a lot of members. I get a lot of PM from members. I do tend to piss a few like yourself off from time to time but I'm just reflecting my opinions too. I don't think I have upset anyone with my pics.
Maybe the Caddy Fairy is mad at me?

Bob, I don't care what the rest say about you, you're OK in my book,....... and for the record I never get mad at anyone, especially at an internet site.

Good JET! I like you too:D . You are not on my ignore list. Mines a short list but some members really irritate the heck out of me.

Go to User CP, under Miscellaneous click on attachments. There u should be able to erase all those attachments from old threads and free up some space so u can post new pics... erase all the old pics, no need to really keep them. Just select the photos u want to erase and click delete at the bottom and ur good to go :cool2:

Ownership: 2000 Platinum Silver DTS
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...

The internet as we know it is rapidly going the way of Citizens Band Radio which degenerated to teenagers yelling curse words at each other. Somehow public services seek the level of the lowest common denominator. Human nature is an irresistable force.

I posted one in the lounge that showed nothing but suggested a lot. The member got all over me. I went back and deleted it. Some of the Avatars over in the V forum are a bit racey IMO.

FYI, Sal went on to tell me not a day goes by that the Forum isn't attacked by the Hackers!

The point is, the site is very popular and very busy. People know this and they want to sabatage the success. And, they want to hack-in and broadcast their message because they know many millions are watching and will SEE that message.. These hack attempts are constant and non-stop.
</rant>
Sorry! :p

I use imageshack for pics and it's free, but the problem is you can't do an avatar from a hotlink because there is no attatchment option under "edit avatar"

If someone knows a way, please advise.

Time to become a supporting member if you aren't already!

The hackers are in Egypt.
