well it might not be for most but a simple solution would be to host them yourself. all you have to do is get a domain and then a hosting site. the steel guitar site i have has photos and can be down loaded by anyone and i can even set links to a photo in question. pricing for this is relatively cheap. the only cravat is that all the PB pictures posted on the forum must be redone, have fun with that, i haven't a clue what i posted and really, doesn't matter.
i guess the wiki might grow into a massive production. anyways, i hope for the best! i do enjoy the visual presentations and old saying "picture worth a thousand words".

I realize this is an old subject but Brad is correct. Once you post photos on a public forum it's absurd to think otherwise.

I've learned a lot reading some of these threads.

This is a self help forum for all things Sportster / Buell. No more, no less.

There are other sections of the XLF to help pass the time, general discussion, meeting new people, life's turns and etc. but the song remains the same.

Advice and pictures that people post on this forum was used as just that at the time of posting them. They stay in the archives for others to follow in the same fashion. I, as well as many many others, have searched the bowels of this forum to find that with hours and hours of searching, there is still more that don't come up on a search. Sometimes all it takes is the right answer or the right picture to solve whatever reason for searching to begin with.

The Sportsterpedia is not a public corporation with Big Brother's backing, approval and regulations. It's Bert's way of organizing this forum to the fullest. It's not for profit nor is this forum. Memory serves me right, the yearly fee to become a XLF team member also covers the Sportsterpedia. Same money, same owner, same tech help but different urls.

In the original conception of the Sportsterpedia, there were many members here that were just fine with the concept as long as the information stayed on this site. No one seemed to like the idea of it being on a separate site. I'm sure that has something to do with some people's reactions to the Sportsterpedia.

2 1/2 years into this now, and the Sportsterpedia growing as it is in storage alone, I think Bert made the right decision.
And, it was his to make.

I have a couple original fabrications on the XLF. I posted them here and in the Sportsterpedia for the purpose that maybe it will help someone else. If I was looking for a patent, I definitely would not post it here. That would be stupid of me to post those pics.

If I was looking for a pat on the back and posting here to get it, that would also be stupid of me to believe what I post is copyrighted to me.

We've asked for people to help edit and add to the Sportsterpedia. We don't have a dog in the race of any kind of ownership to what we include in it. It's not ours. It belongs to Bert as do the pics that everybody posts in the XLF.
