Just had a thought.

On the new site we'll have to figure out the controls for our current members when we all create our accounts on the new site. Typically you have it set so that new members go into a moderate group and have limited posting privileges until they make a certain number of posts. Like no posting pictures, signature pics, or hyperlinks. It's a spam prevention measure.

Of course this shouldn't apply to all of the existing members. So as we migrate over we'll probably have to manually put everyone into the user group that isn't moderated.


I agree 100%
IIRC the old YamahaMotorcycleForum required 50 posts before you could post pictures, get a custom avatar or post in the 'For Sale' section.
No reason we shouldn't have that as well for any new members.
They could still participate, but not just drop in with a bunch of classifieds and disappear the day it all sells.
Kind of a "Show us you're one of us".
Everyone here IS One Of Us already.
The only "Problem" I have , has been my "Problem" since I joined. Never got the picture posting down. Can something be done to make this a " Computer Illiterate " friendly feature ? Please


From my understanding the new forum software is "drag and drop" with your photos. So as you are making your post you can open up a file on your computer full of photos and just "left click and drag" the photo/s you want to share into the post you are making. THey will automatically be resized, inserted and saved onto the forum. This one feature will probably bring some people back when they find out about it.

From what I've read on their website, yeah.
About as easy as it can get.

Pretty sure it puts a thumbnail in the post & if you're logged in you can view the pictures full-size by clicking on it.
That saves bandwidth & the cost of it to the forum.
If not logged in, there's just a link for a picture that if clicked shows a message like:
"This feature is reserved for forum members. Please log in, or create your free profile now ..."

Something along those lines, I know I've seen it on other forums using the same software we'll be using.
