could it be that you used photobucket to post them? Shortly after that company started charging for their service I noticed eveyones pictures were showing up missing or broken on here.

TBH I dont even now what happen to my photo bucket account. I'm thinking it's either gone or being held hostige until I pay to their subscription fee to access it.


Answer to the OP. I would be in favor of the vehical profile addiction.
These ones people are pointing out aren't Photobucket images. The old system had a unique photo uploading feature that hasn't been super easy to transition over. We've addressed a lot of the images but some are still being finicky. I'll keep working through them. You can tell when it's this issue as you'll roll over the broken image and you'll see the image that's trying to load sown in your progress bar, the URL will be something like "galantvr4.org/img.php?id=183477%20t=_blank" - that's the telltale sign. Luckily we can fix those. For some reason the fix isn't addressing all of them at once.

I did, but could we get a different option other than Drag, Rally and Road course? Maybe Other...? Some of us are not really building our cars for any specific category and are just fun street builds. Other people do it for roll racing etc.

"Street" is the first option - I just edited yours to reflect that. It will take a bit for your signature to reflect that. I'll be editing the look of the signatures for these today/tomorrow.

In a lot of old threads, my images are broken, not because of the hosting, but apparently because the site doesn't like the IMG tag anymore I'm assuming this is related to only allowing specific sites?

In any case I've always used my own hosting, and there are probably many hundreds of images now broken as a result... http://gvr4.bloviate.net/images/misc/MSHR2006small.jpg <-- example image link from https://www.galantvr4.org/threads/andrew-staleys-1992-461-1000.1204/
I'm not 100% certain, but I suspect it might have something to do with the linked images being HTTP, as opposed to HTTPS, but let me investigate. The fact that the image loads outside the bbcode tells me this shouldn't be too tough to fix.
