Default Posting Threads with Youtube Video's..

We have been noticing a lot of threads being started on the forum with just a youtube video... If it has no description or pictures of what is in the video we will move it to the youtube thread in Members Links...



Part of Rule # 6

Creating posts/new threads that only contain a URL to an offsite video is considered spam. Please include what your video/story is about. Beginning May 1st, 2017, empty YouTube video posts will be merged with the YouTube thread in Member Links.

Yeah, if you post a video, it should be a soundtrack to accompany your awesome story and pictures..

Sorry, I just recently did this regarding a thread about Excal repairs/o-rings. I posted links to one of OBN's youtube repair videos and links to discussions from this forum. I dont click on links either unless I trust the individual and it's pertinent to the discussion. With this "Ransomware" virus infecting thousands of computers/companies all over the world now I'm almost paranoid about opening anything these days.

If I do post a link I'll get approval first, ok Craig?

this is what im told when i try to upload pictures . Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing.

If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error.

It's a bug in VBulletin. What it should tell you is that your picture is too large. You need to resize it. This thread might be of help. http://metaldetectingforum.com/showthread.php?t=248949
