A note of appreciation for the hard work required to keep it up, when it is offline it is missed by many! Thank you!

Thanks!

I will be posting some site status notes as we continue to do some major work on the site. We have run into some technical issues as the site has grown far beyond our expectations. I have disabled a number of features for the time being.

If you are missing “avatar” or profile picture, don’t try to upload another for now. Long story.

Thanks!

Mako

I sincerely appreciate the work that goes into maintaining this place. I've been away from the site for awhile and it was nice to come back and find it right here waiting for me.

As for the social media aspect, we should all start to @vintageenduros in our own instagram posts having to do with our bikes. There isn't a ton of posting going on at the instagram site. Let instagram host all the cool Enduro pictures so yamaha-enduros doesn't need the storage space.

Your efforts are much appreciated.

I'm going to get up on my soap box and put in a plug for everyone to kick in some $ for support of this wonderful site.

The hours spent riding my Enduros is not deducted from my life span.

Many thanks guys, I must confess I doubt all the listed members actually exist, I think it was showing over 8.5K the other week ?. Anyway a good early spring clean was needed and you seem to have done a great job.

I will tell you that the 8,500 number is a real number - but many of those folks registered and have not then been active. There is a core of rabid site users (THANK YOU!) and a slew of less active, and many, many lurkers. Part of the hosting space problem is we attempted to add some features which tend to be very, very storage intensive, which affects site performance as well as storage space. We are changing some of that.

I am also looking at using Amazon Web Services as a photo server which would decrease actual site space, and likely speed up page loads for users. Lots in the works, but first I gotta fix a few leaky seals and such!

Each day follows the last like some sad marching band with no leader. Tuesday is the tuba.

The photo services are a big plus to this site over other forums, nice not to have posts with dead links, and the ease of uploading to the post makes life easy. Thanks for all the hard work you put into running the site.
