that wasent my question, I was asking why I cant as much as preview it with the images attached. I am going to get VB soon, but I want to know what skins I want before I buy it.

dan1088352 the reason you can not preview the attachments is because you are unlicensed. You will have to wait until you have a valid licence before you can view them.

Thanks,
Mat

This problem has been discussed before - it doesn't really make sense to prevent unlicencend users viewing images - but without a mod, it's not possible to allow the downloading of just images so they have to suffer. Perhaps this can be fixed now the forum is 3.5.

I'm fully aware of that - The reason you can't is because you are showing up as unlicenced :)

I say again, I wasent asking why I couldnt view it, I was asking why you dont let the unliscened preview it.

Paul M, thanks for the answer

because unlicensed members would then have access to codes and downloads etc, its not as simple as to just let you see pictures, etc etc

Here's a quote from Xenon in reply to a different thread. It goes along with what Paul M said.


that's a design issue, Screenshots are attachments, and attachments are not permitted to be downloaded by unlicensed

i will change that, when i find a nice way ;)

It would definitely be a difficult modification to make.
