There has been some problems seeing pictures in some of the threads, sometimes they show up as red X's, lines, or the missing picture icon.
One of our great Moderators asked me to do a little troubleshooting to see if I could find a problem on my end while he worked on it from his end, and as it turned out it was on my end.
Now I don't know if this is always the case but it seems to have cured the problem so far, so if you are having trouble seeing pics heres what I found out.
My browser (Google Chrome) is great but it also has tons of third party pop-ups aka advertising which is annoying so I installed a filter extension called "Disconnect" which blocks all third party cookies (TCP) and tracking.
Hence you don't see pics or links to them (it sees them as pop-ups) the fix was to disable the extension and/or allow TPC in the exceptions list for MTF, once that is done you should be able to see the pics and any links that are posted.
Since I don't use IE, FireFox or Opera I don't know if this fix will work for them but I do remember there being an option for this in IE8 so it may work for that browser as well, the other two you may have to just give it a try to see if it works.
I hope this helps, and a special thanks to Brad and D-Dogg for their persistence and help in trying to fix this.
Attention Mods any adjustments or added info to this thread would be greatly appreciated and thanks for the help.
