Re: plastic roof-edge strips

It looks like the plastic clip is meant to be part of the plastic trim piece, and then the trim (with the clips) is pushed into place over the metal tabs in the roof channel. It might be easier to take the clip off the metal, and then attach it to the rail. Then, as an assembly, push it onto the met...

Re: What happened this week--site was unavailable?

Thanks to an email from JoeS, I was able to look into the problem this morning. There was a server setting that was causing the log files to take up huge amounts of space, which was causing a memory usage error. Anyways, short answer, it's fixed - and settings have been changed so it shouldn't happe...

Re: Admin: Spam Concerns

They were all coming from the same IP address so I've banned it.

Now we'll just have to wait and see if they use another IP to attack the forum.

Thanks for all your deleting work Mods!

Re: Forum private mailbox jams after 20 stored?

PMs work as stated by PV1 As for messages sitting in the Outbox, they stay there until the recipient opens them. It works as a read receipt in a way. This allows you to delete a message right up to the moment it is read, unlike an email where once sent, you can't retrieve it. If you have 20 messages...

Re: Admin: Unable to Access this Site

If you remember when the site went down, please let me know. Trying to narrow down the cause About a week ago there was a server upgrade, but that would've only been a one-time issue... Maybe check the logs? Should be pretty obvious when the last page was served before the site went offline. Thanks...

Re: Admin: Unable to Access this Site

The recent forum access issues haven't gone unnoticed. We also share a server with the myBMWi3 forum which is how I check to see if it's a server issue. No, us moderators have no magic solution to fix the problem other than sending an email to our Administrator in case he doesn't know already that ...

Re: Admin: Possible Copyright Issues

No sorry I don't know. I think in general these are followed (but I have no idea of the legal repercussions or implications of any of them - likely depending on the poster's locatoin?) a) If something is paid only access, it shouldn't be posted b) If something is free (like a brochure or manual) the...
