Thanks for your kind words Kenneth, and for stepping up to take on the role of managing OzVMX. To be honest, I think it will reinvigorate the whole thing as I have really let the bar drop over the past couple of years.

So a big welcome to the new team, and here's to a bright future for OzVMX.

Not my business to be saying, but I will anyhow. Forgive me if I am out of line.
Not many would know of Graeme's preoccupation of the last couple of years.
For one, Graeme's Father past on earlier this year. My sincerest condolences Graeme.

I have met some great people through this forum, quite a few will remain life long friends.
I am grateful for that Graeme, thanks  :)

I will always remember who and what an outstanding idea and execution of bringing this old dirt bike community together 8)
Well done, your a class act Graeme and I for another think you have made a great gesture by passing our beloved OZVMX forum
on to safe hands. Well done and Good Luck saving the world mate :) 8)

Well done Kenneth. There are some things that need to be saved from the wrecking yard and this forum is one of them. I had a great time when I was a regular on here and I too met a lot of good folks on here. I've moved on from VMX to enjoy other pursuits but still enjoy the bikes and the people so I'll probably still pop in from time to time.

Happy Ozvmx has been saved. My daily routine has me check in at least twice a day, every day! ;D

I had trouble getting a response after logging into Photobucket but when I clicked the upload button I was already logged in.

Hi Ken
Can I make a suggestion as far as posting images. I'm a member on trialscentral & they have a supporters subscription which allows you to post images direct but non supporters have to use a remote server.
The annual fee is minimal & helps with the costs of the site, I'm sure I wouldn't be the only person willing to do this

I love looking at the images that others post. Picture tells a thousand words thing, I guess.

A positive option that Tony has mentioned.

Photobucket is now owned by FaceBook. So all about making money, through advertising or you paying for the much quicker add free format. Some browsers(companies) have decided not to support some add ons(used to display advertising) offered by other browser companies(apparently it takes a lot of effort to guard against attacks when they consider(try to match) incompatibilities).


In the mean time,
A quick way that it works well for me;
Pay the $9.99 per annum add free fee to photobucket. Then it is very quick.

I take my pics with my phone and simply upload to Photobucket via their Phone app.
I make sure I have the 4G data stream and booster turned on as well(with the WiFi)
Ok, so that makes it very quick to get it to Photobucket.

Then I open photobucket on my computer(add free). Pics are already there waiting for me in "recent uploads"
Heaps quick when you get the hang of it.

Try googling the OzVmx forum in a different web browser and see how it goes for you.
