the whole guide section uses attachments for a reason
if you didnt then its either edited or deleted
have a look on the guides section,bit pointless if the guide references pictures that are not there?

They can post, just their posts are put into a queue for the mods to check before they appear on the open forum

At least that's my understanding
or maybe he was pointing out how strick other forums are, an people should stop moaning about the few rules ff has

Re: site rules

Ok, here's my two pennyworth

Firstly let me say that this forum has been warm and welcoming

Reading the first post there is a touch of 'shooting itself in the foot' there

Quote Quote:
The facility of uploading pictures directly to Team-BHP has now been enabled. Henceforth, please do not use imageshack or any other external photo hosting solutions.

.........................

it has become increasingly difficult to bear the expenses of Team-BHP ourselves. Costs related to software, server hosting, design etc. have hit the roof. In the near future, you will be seeing advertisements on Team-BHP. Some clarifications:
They are saying that you have to use the site's photo hosting and not any solution of your own, but they are raising the point of costs for server hostings. Surely hosting photo's inhouse increases the amount of disk space needed and therefore costs

I am sorry if this post upsets anyone, this is far from the aim, it is merely my take on the rules listed in Jai's post.
