    Yes, when photo bucket started charging for links, it was discouraging. Just today, I realized I needed to find a photo online in order to post it here, while on FB I can link it to the pics on my computer.
    You are uploading pics to Facebook.

    I use imgur as my pic hosting service.
    The cost of a motorcycle is merely a down payment on farkles.

    Since I really don't post pics much anymore, I suppose I can just post them to FB and go from there.

    That would work for anybody on face book,
    and there you go, maybe why this site is sick, a big chunk of the world is not on face book
    or maybe too many beginner bikers are on face book and not here.

    Or maybe they are just too busy riding or setting up sections to be on the internet when it is so nice out today.

    The problem with that is the facebook URL for the pic is never permanent. It might last a few months, a few weeks, a few days, or a few hours...so if you link the FB pic to a forum the image eventually disappears when the URL "expires". If you're lucky, it expires after the discussion dies...but anyone resurrecting the thread won't see it later.

    <facepalm>

    One of the facebook bike groups I oversea is having a lengthy discussion regarding "Tell us about how you had to lay it down". I'm almost tempted to post that one in the BBO facebook group...judging by a lot of the new posters it should get some hits. Maybe throw in an additional LPSL discussion just to be sure.

    People have migrated to another BBO venue. The facebook group has 333 members and 3 posts were started there today.
    For me, it's that and the feeling that the migration to Facebook created the feeling of amplification from some overwhelming personalities who were no longer tempered by diverse input.

    I had to read that 3 times
    Is that why this site is sick? or are you saying the face book group is sick too?

    btw imho this site is the least broken motorcycle enthusiast site on the net right now.
    It works good and it is not super saturated with advertising like the rest kudos to the management.
