Nobody is.

If you want pictures in your posts, you'll need to link to a hosting site.

The change was made about a year ago I think. The idea was to reduce the storeage space needed to house this site because it was getting so big. Keep in mind, the owners of this site (Baldy & AceRph?) offer this whole thing free of charge (though you can donate).

I don't have a web based photo host either, so I almost never post personal photos. You can copy and paste from a Google image search, so I usually try to find a picture that closely represents what I'm trying to get across. It doesn't work in Google Chrome, though, so I have to use Internet Explorer to do that. If you are on another forum that allows uploading, you can find an excuse to upload it there, then copy/paste it into advrider.

Damn, what is it with me and "work-arounds"? It would probably be easier to just get into this decade and sign up with a web host, huh?

P.S. There is a test thread specifically for testing this sort of thing, so Eddy's test may get bannished there.

Baldy owns the site. Ace is the Top Dawg when it comes to Mod stuff.

It is still possible to attach GPS track files (only .gpx file types are allowed) in the Layin ' Down Tracks subforums,

Good job posting the picture, but keep in mind, that isn't an attachment, it's a link. It will be there as long as your link is up to date.

Why ?
 
I've been struggling for hours trying to learn to post a pic. Just now, even though I'm logged in etc, I just noticed that I can view posts, respond, etc. but "you may not post attachments". Why is that?

Thanks

I'm not a mod and I don't play one on the internet but here's a link to the sticky that explains how to post an image. Hopefully this will ease your frustration.

Posting, or linking a picture is not "attaching" a picture.

You can link from a photo hosting web site.

An attachment is a photo uploaded to this site, and stored on this site. That is no longer allowed.

EVERYONE'S screen says they "may not post attachments." They are posting/linking pictures all the time, and so can you.
