I know this is of topic.

Why is it not possible to download pictures as in FB, an easy affair?  To do a rr will be as easy as pie.  At this stage it is a helluva effort to do a proper rr, so much so that I, and I think alot of others just don't bother. 

Just asking.   :peepwall:

Just to touch base here, migration and upgrade went ok. Took a looooooong time but that part is done.

Testing has begun and I'm working as closely as I can with all the testers - thanks again to all you who have contributed your time to helping me out here with some good feedback. It is really appreciated.

It's because of the way the forum software is designed and the limitations it put forward.

That said, I've begun developing a ride report system that I am hoping to plug in here so that we can really make the ride reports look good and work.

(KilRoy remind me to talk to you about this...)

100%, it was always our intention to make the creation of RR as simple and stress free as possible.  Kind of like a content management system with proper tags and indexing.

Relax Mystus, we have lived with this forum for years. I hope the family problem is sorted satisfactorily.
