    New Image upload size

    Terry, Call it ignorant or asinine - this is a limitation our hosting company imposed on us, not some arbitrary restriction i pulled out of thin air. People uploading 15mb photos that are 4000h*4000h pixels are clogging our storage. Its plain and simple. Therefore the solution is to make EVERYONE reduce the size of their photos BEFORE they upload them. Peter
  2. Bleach, Yes, Something will change. Yes, I give a s...t. This is more than a ISP issue. This is a software issue. The problem has been reported to the appropriate people, and the issue is being worked on. If you have something constructive to say, say it. In the meantime, your doomsday, hyperbolic comments are getting out of hand. Peter
  3. For those with speed issues. What type of connection do you have to the internet? Are you using a firewall? Give me as much detail as possible. Keep in mind, i have few complaints and my personal access is to the forum is plenty fast. Also, the site resides on Amazon Cloud. Cant get much faster than that. I'm not saying you are not having problems.... but I cant fix something I cant replicate or diagnose.

  4. Bleach, Try it from a server closer to you.
  5. I'm doing my homework, but from everything i see the performance of the site has not change much at all over time. Speed is subjective... so I'm curious if any of you have got anything more subjective to show me? For example, post a screen dump of the results of this test:!/egNdBj/ (How to do a screen dump:
  6. Use whatever browser you like.
  7. We are hosted by Invision Power, the company who provides the software. And our performance have been pretty solid. Is this his a recent thing for those experiencing slowness? How long? I use both mac and pc without issue Peter

    Junkyard forum guidelines.

    Discuss specific current junkyards by state and name. A typical posting might contain: Subject: "New York State, Greiner's, Cold Brook". Post: "Then a brief description of the junkyard and cars in the junkyard. Including location and photos." Thanks to Jon Battle for suggesting this forum.

    Note From the Administrator Of The AACA (and this) Forum.

    Bans are not typically discussed out in the open. In this case i felt compelled to justify my actions publicly due to a few individuals in particular taking it upon themselves to damn me for it, and accuse me of bias. The "noise" associated with this ban has pretty much gone away. In hindsight I should have banned him earlier. The drama he created in the forum and elsewhere would have been a lot less has i just gone with my gut. But i hesitated in the hopes of being fair and balanced. The fact the that forum is humming along without him, and no one seems to be missing him pretty much says it all. Peter

    Let me add my 2 cents: Moderator's Job Keep forums on topic Keep forums civil Make sure people are following the rules of the forum It's really that simple. You as forum users need moderators to moderate. As many of you have seen on other forums, lack of moderation leads to bad feelings, lack of participation and many times, the closure of the forum (and all its benefits).

    Note From the Administrator Of The AACA (and this) Forum.

    This forum is filled with people with different opinions. Your implication is that people get banned for it. Your massive overgeneralization is wrong. Name one other person who has been banned, let alone banned for having "different" opinions. If a member who is a "good source of info" can not be civil and follow the rules, he stops being a "good source".
  15. For those that don't know me, I am the forum administrator and head moderator of the AACA forums. I helped built and maintain this forum as my contribution to our great hobby! With that said, I try to keep a low profile around here. I suspect virtually none of you know me, or care for that matter. That's perfectly ok with me. Recently however I've had my integrity and motives questioned. I want to set the record straight. A few facts: I started these forums for the AACA in 1998. (yes, 20 years ago) I added the BCA forum (including Reatta) in 1999. (at the request of them BCA President Al Eichelberger) . (sp?) I've maintained these forums FREE in all that time including 4 major upgrades, 6 server platforms, and countless minor updates, changes and additions. In all the years of running these forums I've banned only a handful of people (not including spammers) Side note: I'm also the webmaster (paid) for and For those of you who feel I am in the wrong, I encourage you contact me. If you'd like to speak directly with my bosses you can find them here: Antique Automobile Club of America - Board of Directors. For those that have supported me in the most recent activity in the Reatta forums - THANK YOU! Peter Gariepy AACA Forum Administrator and Moderator 520-247-5918
