Apparently the owners of the forum software are having legal issue with their hosting provider.

Unfortunately due to illegal content posted by a user on some other forum, the server was seized....

Not being able to attach pics and pdf's is going to be one big issue for members. Some pdf files and pictures posted since 12/30/2015 will be lost for sure.

This only applies to pics and pdf's attached using the forums hosting option.. All Photobucket, FlickR or other outside hosted pic and attachments will be fine. In order to post pics to the forum, members are going to have to use an outside hosting service ( Photobucket, etc.. ) .

We could continue to experience these problems for as long as two weeks out. Until they are able to switch servers..

To post outside hosted images, simply copy and paste the "Direct Link" provided (after you uploaded it into Photobucket) onto your post. Then be sure to surround it with this img code..

Like this...

Code:

Like Joey, I have had no new notifications since the problem began. No problem, and glad to see things are almost back to normal again.

I never mastered the Photobucket way of posting images, so will wait till everything is back on track.
