I've just spent most of this rainy Friday preparing, tweaking, and testing the Attachment modification, and after a rocky 15 minutes or so (during which time the forum probably seemed broken to most of you) I've got it online and ready to go.

When posting, you'll now see an extra set of buttons at the bottom that allows you to choose a file from your hard drive and add a comment to it. If you want to add more than one, choose the first one, and then hit the Add Attachment button, which will give you space to add a second file.

You can upload a total of 6 files per post, each with a maximum size of 150k. Each of you will have an upload quota as well, which you can see in your public profile.

I'm somewhat worried about bandwidth usage, but am trying this as an experiment anyway. With that in mind, please try to use the attachment system with the spirit of Modern Vespa in mind, and not for NSFW stuff.

If you have any questions, or something seems broken, let me know and I'll try and fix it as soon as possible.
Go on -- guess!

The Patch
I know I use the word Awesome a lot to describe what I like. So let me just say "That's freakin Awesome!"

Thanks for all the hard work with the attachments Jess.
My guess is that it is another patch we can order to help support this site, or the logo. Either way it looks sweet, Beale.

Great design and awesome that you'll "refresh" annualy. Oh, and HELL YES to collecting them all!

Nice attachment feature as well. Thanks for saving me from FTP time when I want to post personal images to messages!

Jess, any possibility of having Cafe Press do t-shirts, etc? the South Bay scooter folks have stuff with their ska-inspired logo available there....

Possibly. I've considered doing it, but wanted to get the patch out first.

It finally dawned on me why I like that patch design so much. I love checkers (not the game), as seen by the paint job I gave my Mini.

Excellent patch Jess!! I know I'll be ordering a couple as soon as they're ready. I know you'll have a lot of interest on this run. I hope these will not be as "limited" as the last run so we will all be able to receive at least one.

As for tee-shirts...Hell yes! I'm sure you'd get enough sales to make it worth the forum's time. Let us know....

Very good patch!
Jess, I haven't gotten into the patch thing but can we right click or download your attachment (is it possible to download?) so we can use it on our Web pages to link to this wonderful forum? Or if we want to reproduce it ourselves and make our own patches, t-shirts or otherwise? Are you copyrighting it or having people ask your permission first before reproducing?

Lisa (and others),

It's okay by me if you download the image (just right-click and Save As...) for use on a web site. I'd like to retain the right to use it for merchandise (patches, shirts, whatever) as it will be the sole source of support for this web site.

Patches are already on order, and I'll make them available to everyone who donates to the forum.
