    Dear members & guests

    We recently migrated CF.net to a new server that will hopefully give us more control and reliability. While the actual migration was very smooth there are lingering technical issues that need to be fixed.

    The most prominent of these is the entire report system being broken. I am working on fixing this issue. Until it is fixed, please feel free to use the Talk With The Staff (TWTS) forum as an alternative.

    We are also making changes to the attachment system, more details to follow. For now, please link/embed media instead of attaching.

    If you find any other technical bugs please notify staff or post in this thread.

    Thank you.

    The format buttons just above the post editor, there is an Image one, and a Video one. Use these to past the link to the image/video and they will appear in the post.

    If you wish to use a photo from your computer that isn't on the internet, upload it to a free image hosting service such as photobucket or imgur, or link via dropbox etc.

    Since the migration, I have not been able to post any pictures with a jpg ending.

    How do I post a picture now?
