  1. Had a dig further and you gave some even larger ones lurking in there clocking in above 2Mb Could you have a look through and replace the large ones with compressed versions and then let me know how it went.
  2. Are the images mainly supporting the resolution of member problems (yours or others)? Just had a quick look at your attachments - the issue is that they are individually very large. I'll illustrate in a sec by compressing one of them. Here we go... using https://imagecompressor.com/ (the first one on a Google search, not a recommendation) Original 200k+ Compressed 45k (below)
  3. Good question! The main use for attachments is to post images of issues and solutions. Images can very easily be compressed online or taken in low resolution (we just did a test on an iphone and produced a very acceptable image at 34k). Let's say you upload 100k images - the 2Mb limit will mean that you can have a total of 20 images. Try them again Top of this section
  4. Feedback section fixed and now under Community Support.
  5. No deleting as far as I know Sam. It's a shame that you've deleted the images if they were helping others. Just for anyone else in the same situation, as noted above:
  6. As promised, we've read your comments and Supporter/Mod/Admins have been discussing the detail of the changes over the weekend. Specifically attachments being restricted for non-supporters. The following is a summary of the points you have raised and the outcome of the discussions. Reasons for: to encourage those who have issues for which a photo would be helpful (or just want to post a few pics) to contribute to the running of the forum to save on server storage space as we are on the point of needing a much bigger server with visitor levels heading up fast (Av 120
  7. Thanks all for your contributions. The key point re. attachments (images) has been listened to and is currently being discussed off the main forum. It'll take a short while for everyone to have their say as the discussion isn't real time.
  8. Much appreciated Griff, your comments have been added to the ongoing discussion behind the scenes. Noted, good point.
  9. The lurkers aka Guests are a good source of ad revenue and will always see ads, possibly even more in the future.
  10. Yes, within our capacity to deliver for supporters. Not to enter into debates but at least to give an indication of the reasons for moderation.
  11. CMT Approved Member and Supporter Changes 2021 We need your help... We have had a supporters membership option for many years where members kindly donate £10 per year and, to say thank you, we suppress banner advertisements when they visit. To try to offset rising costs, without swamping the forum with advertising, we are planning a few changes that we hope that you’ll support. There will always be a free membership option but we need to reduce the features a little to preserve our server and time resources as our visitor numbers go up. We
  12. Business as usual? Covid under control? Caravanning and Motorhome(ing) back to normal? Not quite, but we’re definitely getting there! Be ready for more parts shortages, slow deliveries, new caravanners and motorhome(rs) on the road but… we’re back out there. It’s a good summer coming! You’ll see below that things are still moving on here at CMT with a whole extra letter ‘M’ in the abbreviation. Lot’s of new members and since March 1st, 110% more visitors than last year and 60% more than in 2019 (570,450 to be precise). That all adds up to a lot of people asking questions and provid
  13. Not the final logo but it’ll do for now
