    New mechanic to the forums

    Hey everyone, bike mechanic in Orlando, FL and into commuting/touring/roading; new to the forums and have a couple questions:

    What are "Stickies"

    Why is it that it seems as though an image should be in a post but it isn't.
    (Example: ..Here's my bike. [but no picture])

    Hello and welcome!

    Stickies are posts of lasting interest or containing guidelines for posting in a particular forum.

    Stickies remain at the top of the forum, rather than slipping down unless new posts are added.

    Members can request posts be made into Stickies, but the Moderators have final say.

    Hello Supermale, FlatTop answered your question about stickies, so I'll go for the second part--I believe your image did not show up because it's your first post. So, no images, no links allowed. It's to cut down on spam.

    Check out the regional forums for the Southeast and add your name to the ever growing list of Floridians .

    What kind of bike have you got?

    Welcome to BF!

    Thanks for the info but its not for my images, its other people's images in the posts that don't seem to show up sometimes. I can see most images but there are times like in the example I gave where there just isn't an image where it should be - I'll check out the Floridians

    Are you seeing little red x's? That means that the image is not there, for some reason. If you are at work, your employer may block flick'r, or photobucket.
