Some updates was created by Gary
Just some updates, the forums had a big upgrade to a newer version today, I don't suppose anyone even noticed ;)
I also spent some time sorting out the image galleries so that we now have 2 distinct galleries, one to show off our modelling prowess where all users can create their own folders and subfolders to put their works of art in to.
The other being the Research Photos section for photos that are useful to us as modellers, anyone can view it but uploading is limited to those that ask for access to do so.
There's a major version upgrade due, in fact it's been due since the beginning of the year as this version of Joomla is no longer supported. The downside is some of the components will no longer work as they aren't being updated by the developers and the theme will need reworking as it's a major version change.
I'll give due notice when I'm going to be doing the version upgrades.
Thanks for your continued support of this site.
Gary

Hey Gary, don't know if the update has caused it, but I can't post while attaching photos from an external source? Clicking submit just bounces me back to the editor?

You've never been able to attach to files not on your computer or do you mean posting links to images elsewhere?

OK, it may have to do with links rather than images. An anti-spam setting maybe? I just posted a bunch of photos of my AT-ST and I can only post 2 per post, but when I tried to post 2 plus a link, it wouldn't let me.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the feedback :)
I started all this to help myself get back into the hobby and to help others get over the same issues I had when I came to NZ with no idea where to find anything.
My biggest goal was to create a community for modellers and I'd like to think we've managed to do that. Its been a long process with lots of ups and downs but it's grown in to something bigger than you hairy Kiwi's with members from all walks and all countries, but best of all, good people. :)

What size are they? Is anyone else having problems and if so what size are your images? It might of reset back to a default size which is smaller than you are used to, I'll check tomorrow.

Heck, I've largely always tried to resize anything I upload here to around 1.5Mb. Certainly less than 2Mb. never had any issues to date... fingers crossed as I speak . . . :lol:

Thanks man :)
I try my best, it's still got a long way to go in my opinion, I'd love to see one collective group of modellers instead of the disparate groups working in isolation.
Auckland Model Club is now under new management and I'm hearing some good things coming from there, they're keen to get more involved with us here and they are coming to Armistice and having their own section.
Don't blow me out guys I'm putting my neck out again this year, I lost a lot of cred when I was let down by the last administration 4 days before the show.
I'm also hoping that MSMC will be joining us as well, I've heard they are coming enmasse from the deep dark South (West ish).
On another note, Declan has added some nice interior shots of a T-34 up in the Research photos section and Phil's Squawk photos are back in place (I think they were your's weren't they Phil? )
