AlwaysOnAuto--I could not figure how to attach pictures to private messages so I hope no one minds if I post a couple of pictures of my Porsche.

I don't mind the images - nicely done. But this is completely the wrong thread as far as I can make out.

Attaching images to PMs works exactly like attaching images to posts. Just drag and drop (or attach by uploading). The tool is "Conversations" (in the upper right).

Could you please try again? I'll clean up later (i.e. I'll move the images and commentary to an appropriate thread) - you don't have to delete anything).

@jhawk1000 Nice looking vehicle 👍

@MoonMind If I recall correctly at the moment, attachments in PMs are restricted to the supporters group and moderators in order to avoid somebody signing up & trying to use PMs for spam or other nefarious purposes. Remind me in a few days to come back to the subject to rethink how/why it's done. 🙂

Oh, I'm really sorry - having been able to do this forever has completely eliminated this state of affairs from my memory!

However, I can still support moving the images to an appropriate place if @jhawk1000 wishes.

That would be fine to move the attachments but for the life of me, I find no way to attach photos to PMs. It does not have the attach logo on my PM.

@jhawk1000 There are restrictions on who can use PM attachments to prevent abuse. It's something I'll rethink in 2022.

Yep, I was wrong! Still, no worries, I'll copy the image over to the "Remarkable Car(s)" thread.

I also think we should leave this thread intact ...

EDIT: Done. You can edit the post as you see fit (I don't think it's necessary).
