I've recently received an e-mail about someone spamming users via PM. These incidents of spam have occurred in the past and needless to say, its annoying to our users.
I encourage all of you to help us prevent "PM spam" by reporting it using the Contact Us form at the bottom of the forum. Confidentially is kept.

How-To: Post Pictures
There are three ways to post pictures in your threads. The first way is to simply upload them from your PC into the thread by using the "Manage Attachments" link. However, the restrictions on size are stricter than hotlinking and you cannot place images within the text of your post, they will only show at the bottom of the post. To do this, follow these instructions:
1. When Replying in a thread or starting a New thread, scroll down beyond the text box and fine the button labeled "Manage Attachments" in the "Attach Files" category.
2. In the popup box (pop-up blockers may need to be disabled to access this feature) you will find the "Upload File from your Computer" area with a button at the end of the file path box, labeled "Browse".
Click it to open a local box on your PC that you may use to navigate to the desired image file.
3. Select the file and click the "Open" button in that box to select the desired path on your local PC.
4. Notice that path displayed in the file path box, Click the "Upload" button to initiate the file transfer from your PC to the site.
5. When the transfer is complete you will see the file name in the "Current Attachments" area. Close the File Attachment popup box.
6. When you have finished with the text of your post/thread the attached image should be displayed at the bottom of your entered text when the post is submitted.
In my opinion, the best way to post pictures is by uploading them to a photo hosting site, there are many, then hotlinking them here. I reccommend using Photobucket, but there are other options such as Imageshack and Supermotors. Once you learn how to do this it is very, very simple. You will need to register at Photobucket, it is free and they never send you any junk. Once you are registered you can upload your images onto your account. The larger your images are, the longer it will take them to load. Photobucket has a resize tool on their site but I personally prefer to use the Windows Powertoy, if you are a Windows user you can download it here,
Windows Photo Resizer
I gaurantee that if you download that you will use it all the time. Once it's downloaded all you have to do is right click the picture in your folder and click "resize," size small is a perfect size for forum use and only takes seconds to upload to photobucket if you are on a cable connection. Once you start uploading pictures and are ready to post them into your threads,
1. Log into your Photobucket account
2. Find the image you want to put in your post and hover the mouse icon over it.
3. Four different codes will pop up, click the code next to "IMG" it will automatically copy it.
4. Go to your post and post the copied link(including the IMG tags) into your post where you want the picture to show up.
If you find a picture on Google Images or on another website you wish to post, you can generally hotlink the photo directly from that site(as long as the site allows it). To do this,
1. Right Click on the image you would like to post.
2. Choose "PROPERTIES"
3. In the Properties window you should see a category for "Address - (URL)" with a path to the right.
4. Highlight and COPY the entire path given (it should end in .JPG or .GIF)
5. When creating your post... click on the Insert Image button above the posting window.
6. PASTE the path you copied earlier into the popup window and click "OK".
Now you should see the path displayed along with the proper [IMG] tags on either side.
It's honestly that simple folks, there is nothing to it. We love seeing pictures around here so start uploading and showing us what you got!
The forum has an entire section designated to TESTING, if it's your first time check out that section of the forum to see if you have it down. If you still can't figure it out please feel free to shoot me a PM, I'd be glad to help you out! Look forward to seeing your pictures
