If I've done it right, I've just prevented "Junior Members" from sending private messages. That should keep bots from registering and then spamming everybody using PMs, which could easily skim under the radar of moderators.

Much appreciated.
Hey, I just noticed I’m an Executive member. Swanky.
I’d like to thank all those one char “ O0 “ posts that got me here!

IIRC, you only need 100 posts to be an Exec, but O0 O0 O0

Could be, but then drumminj, for example, deserves a promotion. He’s got over 100 smiley- er, posts. Over 100 posts.

I appreciate you thinking of me, but I'm happy having not having any real responsibility, like being an "executive"!

My recollection suggests executive status is bestowed after 50 posts.

Maybe it's 150 then? Regardless, it's not 1000 or anything like that.

One more update: ocho mentioned in a bond thread that Tinypic (his preferred method for image hosting) was going away. This got me to dig into things, and it turns out the board has support for built-in attachments! It must have been disabled at the old host for disk space reasons or something.

I've turned it on, and it's basically unlimited. Seems that the archives of our conversations shouldn't be dependent on some third party keeping images alive. I should probably also write a script to go fetch linked images and turn them into attachments...

Anyway, when you write a post, below the Submit button there are "Options". There's a new tab next to the Options tab, "Attachments". There you can upload image file(s) and place them in your post.

👍 Awesome, Xan. That’s initially what I’d been looking for. Thank you for activating it!

Thank you Xan. I just tried it, successfully! Works better than TinyPic. 8)
