I am getting Really, Really, Really, Really disappointed in this forum's inability, or unwillingness, to fix some serious issues.

Let’s try to focus on the positives.
I see a tremendous increase in pop-up ads. Maybe someday in the very distant future I may purchase something from one of those ads.
I’m getting more practice logging in as the site keeps logging me out.
I get an error message when I attempt to Like a post, and this is good because I don’t bother people with likes anymore which could be a distraction to them.
And most important, I can’t view any photos. The internet has caused people to become lazy. By removing the ability to view pictures or even enjoy visiting this site, I am encouraged to finally remember what my parents always said, “ go outside and play!”.

We should all thank those responsible.

Hey TW-Brian, I haven't been on this website for quite a while. I posted a mod. on the bike this AM and could look at what the post would be, but when I went to check it out I couldn't even access my friggin' own post. What is going on???

Use Ad block Plus and a good anti-virus program and you won't have to worry about a lot of that S...t. This problem on this web site is ridiculous. Has nothing to do with rational access.

Once upon a time, we had a fully functioning board — then some guys from Canada Eh messed something up, and we had problems posting pictures

After months of this, we had to lure someone over from another forum who knew about this stuff, took a look, and suggested that VSCanada try a small tweak — it worked — no more picture posting problems

So we waited for the dust to settle, and two weeks later, the all clear was sounded — the forum was once more fully functional

Less than 12 hours later, VSCanada -Eh migrated the lot to the Google cloud, creating this total mess you now see before you

“Feed ‘em to the bears” I hear you say — but in all fairness, the VSAdmin guys we see on here from time to time are not the problem — they’re good guys who take a reported problem, and escalate that problem to the guys responsible for fixing it — (and these people can end up unjustly taking the heat)

“Should the problem persist” by the time a certain member gets back from some strange activity like actually “riding a TW”, then you will hear such phrases as “we’ll have a whip round and crowd fund you to get us out of the shit (again)” — whilst in the opposite direction, you may hear things such as “piss up in a brewery” bandied about

We live in interesting times

Meanwhile — if you see this man on the streets of Toronto, do me a favour and have a quiet word in his shell like ……..

The ratio of posts complaining about this forum's non-functionality vs. actual motorcycle related information is getting out of hand.
We've been patient the last year dealing with limited ability to post or view images unless a new procedure was rigorously followed.
I had hoped things might improve.
Things have just gotten much worse in the last month.
If this forum continues as is it may well die an inglorious death.

I attached a photo of the complete description of the current issues with the site. To solve all the problems on the forum, first you have to identify them. BCB87DD0-52FF-4281-A12E-8E1701B8BC84.jpeg

Post #18 was a simple Photo test using the older technique utilizing the "Attach Image " button.

Now a repeat using required technique from last year or so using " GO ADVANCED": Carson.jpg
