If you don't like it that's fair enough, but "while you live in my house you'll live by my rules".
It's just a statement of fact. A discussion is pointless as we, the members, don't make or influence the rules, we have to work within them. I think the OPs problem is the fact that this forum doesn't run like ones he has influence in and he'd like it the same so he doesn't have to think too hard when he's using it.

All I know is I make my donations for the running of events also - I get cans of pop and burgers for free so only seems fair.

So that's why there are never any left when I get to the front of the que, you take multiple burgers

Re: Why images HAVE TO be from gallery ?

I agree with the OP to a point, but also agree with mods etc that forums need to have rules and members, basically, need to just abide by them - otherwise there'd be anarchy.

Most forums are not run as a democracy, the owners/admins set the rules, and you generally agree to such rules when you join.

However, in this day and age, privacy and copyright laws are at odds with the T&Cs and/or the way some of the rules are implemented here.

For example, the inability to edit or remove any posts or images. Just because the rules say something to the effect of "you give us a perpetual irrevocable licence to use/disseminate your posts/images" doesn't make it particularly legal to do so.

e.g. I no longer own a Fiat, so I wanted to remove my MM thread as I don't personally feel it's right that there's images of what is now someone else's car posted on an internet forum. I found that I couldn't remove the thread, nor the images (which, by the way are stored in my 'personal' gallery on here). It did however let me edit the first post, which I did to remove the images - and so you now have one of the dreaded broken theads - rather than the thread just being removed in it's entirety.

In my mind, it does raise the point that if a user wants to remove an image/post, he/she should be free to do so (IMO).

I need to ask the question... what happens if i user says "I no longer agree with the T&Cs of this website"? What SHOULD happen is that the user and all of their posts, images, personal information etc is removed. This is the case in the vast majority of commercial websites I am on/have been on. I suspect that isn't the case here though?

Just my 2p on the subject.

Cheers.

Even if that act then makes the forum a poorer place for everyone else due to the dead links / pics everywhere?

Not really, in life you have to make choices you need to stand by imo, if you post something then whats the difference to if I say something to your face? I can't undo what I've said in person, so why should you be able to do so on a chat forum

one of the T&C's people agree to when they join says they accept that the account will be forever after they have posted, i am unaware of any laws in the country that ff is registered in or hosted in that make this illegal.

you will also find that even on the sites where stuff can be deleted google will often still have a copy in its cache.
