WOW.....we got our own homegrown Mid East type revolution going on right here in river city!!!

Seriously, it appears that pics seem to be the issue here and I for one DON'T post shit with pics because it's a bitch to do. It needs to be easier.

If you look at how dragsource.net does it, all you have to do is click on a "browse" button and find your pic and it attaches to the post. I don't have to set some photo dump bullshit and then copy and paste fucking links from a third party site.

There were lots of times that I wanted to post wiring diagrams or procedures from Mitchell 1 (which I pay $228 a month for) to help guys out and I just simply won't do it. Because I first have to print out the stuff (Mitchell blocks direct links since it's a pay service) then scan them and then post them on some photo site and then link it to the post. I'm willing to print the shit from Mitchell and then scan them but I mean fuck I got other shit to do too.

The other thought I had is this....this site is not a fucking democracy, you don't like it move the fuck on. Fork out some dollars and start your own site.

Damn. I missed quite a bit in such a short time. I agree. Post pics as u make the post. Simple as pie. I've probly not done that a time or two but its so much easier when it comes to buying shit. Like I hate it when people say "I've got too much shit to take pics of" well fuck how is that the buyers problem?

It really ins't that hard to do though...........I've posted many Mitchell1 diagrams on here and takes me approximately less then 5 minutes to post it all up (then again, I know of a lot of tricks from my art world and designing that help out a ton!!...lol). Most of the issues involved with posting pictures are dealing with people not wanting to have the extra steps..........but Handa only has a limited amount of resources from vBulletin, so we have to work with what we got. Something else we must look at is if they want the information BAD enough they will need to wait. I've had guys request information from me and want it RIGHT NOW......so I give them this link www.google.com, otherwise they need to wait until I can get the information put together (if they get too frustrated there is always Honda Tech...lol). If I'm busy might take me a day if I'm not I can do it throughout the day.

I know it is frustrating at times to do but you have to grow accustumed to change in order to move forward. Everyone just likes the old fashioned ways but things change.......who knows, maybe Han will go through another service in the future to help move this problem out.

The site falls on the same principle as what everyone bitches about all the time.............No one wants things done the hard way. They want things so easy they doin't have to get off their chairs. I remember back when people would say (lets go to the track this weekend at Eddyville and race all night)........now its the "It's too far of a drive and I don't want to driver that far or why when we can do it down a side street" etc. etc.

The world is getting too lazy at times...........Glad I'm not sticking to that schedule!!


=....much like Kelly said though at the end........if no one likes how the site works, move on and setup your own!!

Default Re: Moderator Issues

The feature deadmoans was referring to is attachments. I specifically disabled the "Attachment" feature in vBulletin simply because I understand the administrative server side of things. At the moment, I believe the up-time of this forum is very good. It rarely has down-time. An attachment is a file that utilize space and bandwidth on the server. By using the attachment feature, we will only make the site more vulnerable to slowness or down-time. Who would want that? Therefore, I disabled the feature for this purpose.

I know for a fact that there are many, and I mean many, free services out there we can all use such as TinyPic, Photobucket, etc. It will only take a few minutes to upload, click, and paste.

Moderators do their job well, if anything, they should be more frequent with infractions and the ban hammer
