When you click on a link in any of the messages a new window is opened automaticly.

The reason I removed the "right-click" option is because another sportbike site was grabbing all of our images and posting them as thier own. The right-click is not fool-proof to stop the stealing, but it does make it a little harder.

Sorry for the troubles, it's unfortunate that I have to do this to try and protect our copyrights.

Yes but the links to threads do not. I typically right-click several threads at a time to let them load while I'm reading. This system requires me to reload the topic list every time I'm finished with a thread. Your site is already the slowest of my "regular" sites that I visit and the sole reason I had to switch to Explorer from Navigator.

Also I would think that anyone who runs a website knows how to get files out of you-know-where anyway.

Just my input on the subject.

I really don't like this, for the same reason as ride365. I also right click and "open in new window" for several threads, so I don't have to sait waiting for them all. On top of that, if someone has a link to a movie, I can't save it to somewhere before viewing it. I generally save movies to another partition, so I don't clutter up my Temporary Internet Files with HUGE movies.

Any other way to stop the people from stealing the pics that is easily done? Also, uhhh, what pics? I didn't know we had any pics here of any great worth or that were not publicly available.

Thanks Robert, you rock as always! I hope it doesn't cause a problem for you? I understand wanting to keep your site's content here.

Anyhow, thanks again, I really gotta donate, I don't think I have yet... I contributed to MO, Ezboard, and one or two others, you must have missed me when I felt I had money to help "support the web".

Of course the site's integrity takes precedence over my personal desires, so thanks for understanding.

I was not aware any of the pics were copyrighted. All of the pics were submitted about 6-12 months ago by our members.

If the copyright owner wants his / her pictures removed from the gallery I would be more than happy to remove them.
