So I have a few questions for this sites moderator / not sure who that is?

Silly but can't seem to crack the code on uploading Avatar (Yes have small image less than 110 pixels and only 28k have tried every extension I know with no luck) and have a couple other questions about profile stuff.

Thx for pointing me to the right person...<no rush>

Mc

We are currently experiencing an issue with the uploading of avatars. I'm trying to get into the server directory to see if it's a permission or space issue.

Yes, this would be awesome! Hasn't workd for like 5 years... Fix this site! Hell add a few ad's keep this locomotive going or crowd fund this thing?!... OB CAM in SF was crowd funded and its badass now! http://ob-kc.com/ Been here since the beginning and this site as had it's up and down and now it's just pinning downward.

The place is still useful as hell and always will be! Somethings; I just don't want to log-in and this is one site that provides content without doing that.

UPGRADE THE SITE Idea Alien Idea

+1 to Shymac. Seriously would one banner ad pay to get it the site improved? I go on Facebook and see Fred Hope doing double round-the-worlds but almost 0 video and pics here anymore because it’s hard to load.

why not just ask all the users for a little cash instead? does anyone even know how to fix it? I think that is the bigger problem, not the lack of cash.

Now the spammers are even posting in threads. The latest post in “Why is Manzanita Windier” is spam

The phpbb software is from 2001-ish. Obviously, there is current stuff out there that provides bot protection, the ability to block countries, etc. I'm looking for someone actually versed in this stuff to see if we can update or not. Not exactly in my wheelhouse, but working to find a solution. If we can't update this site, then it's time to build a new site as this bot crap is out of hand (not sure how many of us are dealing with this, but it's about a 30min time suck everytime we manually clean up the posts (deleting posts, blocking IPs (waste of time) and blocking users)). Anyway, whack-a-moled the last influx of spam posts. Also, please do not reply to spam posts as it just creates an additional post to delete (and it's cumbersome enough as it is). Thanks.
