Noticed today that I could not attach a littleclip to help RB


Where before, I could attach this little 20k image and not have to upload it to some site (in this case mine).... It seems to me that this feature was very useful and keeps the "intellectual" property where it belongs (on the forum). Another very nice feature was that it was later available just by using its url address for other posts.

Furthermore, from time to time, I clean out the images at my site (at my rate, I am allowed only 10meg) and you will sooner or later (in about a month) see what is below, instead of above and not have the benefit of the clip for the post...



I respectfully request that the ability to post attachments bereturned...SDB/Jim

PS... In trying to figure this out, I observe that attachments (particularly the large ones) load slowly from your server, because, I think, your server is relatively slow compared to most.I think that the solution should beto have a faster server, or further limit the size of attachments but not to eliminate this valuable feature altogether.


Seems problem is solved.. quite possibly "operator error" (see my post below).. Clip that was referenced is now attached as an "attachment"...

That's always been a bitch of mine, is the software is not the same depending on which browser you use, or operating system.

I am getting ready to go riding, it's Sunny and 75 degrees. It's the law around here... haven't decided where to go. Sometimes I don't decide till I look at my Roads of Texas atlas in the trunk of my bike. Lots of pretty wildflowers out right now too.

Well, I can understand some differences... but the ability to attach something is a bit much to be a difference.... I originally thought that it was intentional (by the forum). I am thinking now, it is a WOW bug or the WOW guys trying to make their Apple stock increase in value....

I think WOW still has some issues. Besides the" _deleted", up until this morning, I have not been able to edit posts, this morning I was able to, and right now am unable to. The quote feature does not work, either.
Any ideas why it is that when you edit a post, rather than bring you back to your edited post, you're sent back to the start of the thread?
