Hi everyone, my name’s Garrett. Recently picked up an ‘07 1300C (16k) as my first bike and I already love it! Thanks for having me, I hope to learn a lot! I am an aircraft mechanic by trade. I am also registered on VTXOA under the same username.

Welcome. We love pictures so please do not hesitate to post some of your bike. I believe that you can immediately post pictures in this introduction sub-forum.

Just curious when this policy changed?

I do not know if what you describe was ever a policy here. If it was a policy that was changed, it was not changed with my knowledge.

It was frequently stated over the years that a new member had to make a minimum of 5 posts before having the ability to post pix. I didn't make the rule, and I didn't make this up. I am also not confusing that policy with another unrelated forum, as this, and the VTXOA, are the only 2 forums I visit, daily, that anyone would feel like posting pix. Since the VTXOA is identical to this forum, their policy is the same.

There is obviously a difference between being told that a policy is in place and having that policy actually be in place. Perhaps this has always been a myth. On the other hand, it could have been changed without my knowledge. I am just a mod. I have no input to or control over the site mechanics. I merely moderate the content of posts. One other possibility is that this policy was not changed on purpose by the admins (those who control the site mechanics). Instead, when the site changed a few years ago to using new forum software, perhaps this change was automatic with the new forum software. Beats me which of these or some other answer is correct.

Regardless of how, when, or why, the picture policy you described is not in effect for at least some of the sub-forums of the VTX Cafe. We have ample evidence that it is not in effect for the introductions sub-forum or the bikes/items for sale sub-forum. Plenty of first time posters have their first post in the bikes/items for sale sub-forums and include pictures. It makes sense to me that this policy would not be in place for these sub-forums.

What remains unknown to me is whether or not this policy is in effect for the other sub-forums. My guess is that it is not but this is merely a guess.

It was probably a thing when Big X owned this site and I think the VTXOA had the same format. I don't think it matters on this newer format. I'm a member on a Chevy forum and a gun forum and other than the header pictures at the top, they are all the same and I was able to post pictures before five posts.

Thank you. I will remember this going forward.
