I agree with the OP as well. The Aprilia forum load nice full size photos with ease. Is this just a server storage issue with this forum?
Thanks from Thamer

Good post by the way
That exhaust looks great
Are you going to buy it?
The ads are the only irritating thing on the UK forum. They disappear if you pay the small membership fee, and you get a free Halfords card which pays for your forum fee many times over if you buy tools and things from Halfords which most do in the UK.

Depends. Waiting on Redline to come back with more info, namely proper Db figures, whether or not they wil include DB killers and some dyno results. Oh and a possible redesign of the bellypan.

You kidding !....You should see all the scripts this site is running in the background. Trust me, they are making enough off them to host pictures at the proper size. Add "No Script" to your firefox browser and see how many things are loading on this page.

Yes Admin, I am talking to you. The pic hosting is bull$hit.

I'm literally sitting here typing a memo on changing spark plugs and a way I just discovered to cut the time in half and i took pics to help people and I am losing my mind trying to reduce the size again and again, and then FLIP the pic to the right angle cause the bull$hit code written for this page cant autodetect it.

Seriously ! 97kb photos ??? The iPhone 3 had bigger pictures when it couldnt even host them and people had to log into AT&T to see them. That was 2008.

NOLA.
Thanks from topolino and able duc

What if ANYTHING is being done to address the whole image uploading issue. Come on admins, as much as I like this forum it's still woefully lacking in many ways. Pretty much every other forum allows direct uploads into a thread, yet here we are with the ridiculous 97kb jpeg file size restriction. Everyone else has moved on. Why not this forum? Yes I KNOW you can use an Imgur account but most other forums do NOT require third party hosting so what's the problem. If the current software platform does not support it then maybe it's time to move on to a forum software platform that does. It's been an issue for so long now and never used to be this bad so let's hope the admins can demand more bang for their buck. I know it's an almost thankless task moderating and maintaining a forum but in this day and age you really ought to be getting a better service than this.

Unforunatly if the admins wont do anything, then we need to find a new forum which hosts pictures. Speak with your feet....(which no one will)

the 899 forum when belly up due to the admin making a new site for 959, then expecting all sponsors and what not to pay twice for the same thing in 2 different locations. 899 forums is dead, and the 959 forum is just repeats of stuff thats already been well covered on 899 forum.

Photobucket thing really screwd things up (I had a thread dating from 2005 on another forum full of pictures about a number of "how to" mods i did on one of my cars. now thread is useless without pictures.

I remember when this forum used to be ducatisuperbikes.com many moons ago. Seems as if the spark has long since gone out which is a great shame. It's not that I don't think the admins are not doing their bit to keep things afloat, more that the software they are paying for and working with is not fit for purpose given what the competition offers subscribers/members.

Maybe we should migrate to the UK forum completely, a lot of us are on it and when I feel the need to post an image it's where I go! I don't want to have an aftermarket host handle my images.

Duc is the only admin. He's probably the only one who has control over all this and he only surfaces to either do site maintenance or upload photos of new model bikes. Nothing else. I don't understand how things took a step backwards when this photo BS was never an issue before. I don't bother attempting to upload any photos ever since turdbucket took a crap n changed their ways to make a buck. Fuck it. No more photos.
