    Just thought I would post and ask this, as I was just answering someone else's post and noticed that my sig doesn't show, nor do I see anyplace to edit it anymore.

    I think it has to do with RD moving to a new forum sweet in the summer. It might make it more easy for Dave to move things over or some thing.

    Could be, I also see that they removed images that I had on their servers that I used for posting as well.

    mmm.. Why bother about sigs? Its not like you've lost your identity, but yeah they will probably come back at some point in the future.

    You can upload your images to dedicated hosting sites such as http://www.tinypic.com http://www.photobucket.com http://www.imageshack.us and include them in your post using the links provided when uploading.

    Nope for some usergroups the image uploading has been disabled. We only have limited space on our servers of course and image uploading is not our core :) Can easily simple and fast be done via www.tinypic.com

    I can understand the limits on what forum areas the pics can be posted, and I use an offsite file hosting site for most of my stuff now anyways, but I was able to upload a couple of weeks ago, and I had some images up that were available then as well, so I guess you guys just purged the server to make room and set up new rules.

    Perhaps a little note somewhere to inform us at times would help keep this type of thread out? :)

    You can still use offsite hosting like always. All older uploaded images are still there.
