To start a new topic in a forum first choose the forum you wish to post in by clicking the forum title (I'll use General Banter as an example) then find the "New Topic" button (top and bottom of the page) and click that.
Enter a title for your post in the Subject box, enter the text of your post in the box below that and then click the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page.
If you wish to post a reply on an existing thread then click the "Post Reply" button at the top or bottom of the thread and continue from the second step above. Any problems contact and Admin or Mod by PM or use the Support Ticket system http://www.mr2oc.co.uk/support-get-help ... icket.html
With various photo hosting sites making it difficult/expensive to hot link images to the forums, we have been trying to make the forum attachment feature more user friendly. To this end the forum settings have been updated. Photos may be up to 20 Mb and any dimension in size. The forum will resize them to no larger than 800 pixels on any side to reduce storage requirements. The process of attaching photos is very simple. Simply create a new message and, near the bottom of the page, click the "Attachments" tab and then click the "Add Files" button.
Once you've clicked the "Add Files" button you'll be able to select your desired image. You can attach up to 6 images per post. After selecting your image the file will be uploaded. You can view the status of the upload on the right side of the screen. Once the upload is complete the "Place Inline" button will appear. Simply click this button to insert the image into your post. Note that the image will be inserted wherever your cursor is.
The images will show in your post as a thumbnail image, clicking the image will open the full size image. Please note that your original images will not be changed only the uploaded copy will be reduced in dimensions and file size. Full members also have the use of the Gallery for images CLICKY

Due to recent changes to Photobucket's T's & C's , any image links you post to any forums may no longer be displayed, unless you pay for third party hosting.
Other free photo hosting sites appear to be going down the same road, with this in mind we have made it easer to upload images directly to your posts. CLICKY
Paid members can also make use of OC Picture Gallery which allows you to have your own picture albums CLICKY
