    Attention! Please read! Policy change!

    After very long deliberation and with approval of most (active) moderators and with the comment of the owner of the forum that he never liked the idea of outside hosting anyway, the following policy change will be introduced here in Crosses (and at the distinction of moderators of other subfora in their areas):

    Posts or new threads which contain photos that are hosted by an outside source will be erased! In special cases, at the discretion of moderators or association members, photos from outside hosting might be and can be copied and pasted back into such threads by moderators or any association member. The goal is not censorship but preservation of thread integrity.
    This policy is instituted in order to preserve the threads for later reading and thus also preserving the integrity of the overall forum, being one of the best sources on the planet for this hobby. It has unfortunately happened over the last years that a very large amount of threads became useless due to the missing photos. This policy will stop that degeneration of the forum.


    We sincerely hope this will find the approval of all members, no matter the membership status.

    It's about time! So many useless threads taking up space.... Hopefully moderators in the other sub forums will follow suit.

      Why is patience a virtue, why can't hurry the f*** up be a virtue.

        So that means anyone posting a picture will need to be a paying member?

                In principle, yes. However, if you ask an association member or a moderator to preserve your post it can be done. It depends on the topic. And some post will stand until an answer is given and then will be erased.

                This is NOT to raise money for the owner! If that would be the case, he would have instituted an overall policy against outside hosting. This is a policy born by the moderators and managed by the moderators in order to preserve the forum integrity. Maybe, maybe, one day in the far futire the owner might change the policy to an overall policy. Maybe.

                I do not care about the money, none of my business. I care about this subforum alone.

                              Long overdue. I am a member of another forum as well which was haunted by this very problem. This is the right thing to do. -Ger
