At least a dozen of us currently have no access to the forum. Please correct this situation or tell us you will not ever correct this situation. You will have to use the 2018 forum for the notification if you are not able to remedy the problem. It appears no one is checking the update thread on the old forum.
Thank you.

I believe the sideways and upside down photos are a mobile phone glitch. I don't have the problem working from a desktop computer or a laptop. Try this. When your photo appears sideways in Preview, delete it. Rotate your original 90º left or right (it doesn't matter which) then rotate it back right side up and post it again. I've used this to correct some sideways pictures others have posted.
The inevitable often happens.

Yes Steve, I know how to “fix it” on my end, but the problem never existed until a couple months ago. I post from a phone and it’s the same phone for the last few years... AND its the same make as your computer.

Lots of other peoples photos are sideways & upside down too, and it was a problem that didn’t exist in the first couple months of the forum... Something changed.

A few of months ago there was an update for android. I'm sure its purely coincidence that they fixed something "just right"

Admin,

Thank you for your progress. I am able to access the forum from my work computer now. I will check tonight, to see if my home computer works as well.

Thanks Again,
Terry

UPDATE 7/13/'19

There are many of the members who do NOT have access to the forum due to a Trojan program being attached, which virus programs are catching.

Is there any progress on resolving this issue. Have any of the Admin. personnel checked the 2018 forum "Update" section, linked to in the 2019 log in page? You'll find there are members who haven't been able to gain access for nearly 2 months. My only access is from work or my wife's phone.

I know nothing from nothing, spent most of my school years under a car. The Army only taught me how to kill and repair UH-1’s so not much help there. When I try to access the forum via Google MTFCA nothing, blank page. BUT, went to my browsers history clicked on an old forum topic and bingo, I’m in. Worked for me, might pass the word, it’s worth a shot.

I'm not a computer nerd, however, I load my pictures into the computer first and then if they are crooked, I rotate them first. Then load them onto the forum. So far I have not had a picture upside down or sideways. I also don't take pictures with my camera, but I would think that if one does use the camera, that he could find out which way the pictures come out on the forum and then turn the camera in the opposite direction so the picture would post straight.

For those more familiar with the forum, I have a question. Is it possible to preview the picture and then rotate it before the final post?

I should have said,"I don't take pictures with a cell phone, but with a camera."

Thank you.
each of those dozen ppl can contact me here or PM me and I will fix their individual problems. There is no "general fix" to any one person. That's like saying "doc, I just don't feel well" and expecting a magic pill. Tell me specifically whats wrong in each case and I'll fix it.

And the old forums on old, buggy, unsupportable software are NOT supported any longer. In any way or by anyone. They never will be. its like asking for a light bulb made by Thomas Edison in his workshop in 1879 to be fixed and supported. You might be able to fix it and It might work for 10-20 seconds and then burn out again. and again, and again. yes, just like that....

Jeff,

First, I want to thank you for all you do for us without just rewards. I am sure there are many like me who sincerely appreciate your efforts on our behalf.

You said you needed specific problems to dictate proper repairs. If you look at the 2019 Forum Update page (2018 forum), there are several posts specifically citing the Trojan program problem. These posts span months of time without response. I specifically contacted you via the 2019 forum Update Page AND by using my wife's cell phone to post to the 2019 forum, without results until you switched to the new provider.

I have never expressed the desire to return to the 2018 forum program. I have long been a member of two other phbb forums and really like the phbb system.

Again, I THANK YOU for moving the forum to a new provider. After months of no access, it's great to be able to visit the forum anytime I wish. You all have completed a very difficult job very nicely. I believe there are many more, like me, who really appreciate and enjoy the results of your efforts.

Cheers,
Terry

I appreciate the kudos, but this is really a team effort all the way. There are several of us who work tires tirelessly behind the scenes to make all this work. The national MTFCA club makes it all possible by paying for The website and for the forums.

JEFF, thank you for the great work you are doing for all of us and the numskulls like me that are not computer savvy. After the last breakdown of the website I could not access my log in and had to ask for a new password but now I would like to recreate my old password that I can actually remember. Could you please walk me through it. Thank you. Frank Seress
