Not so much technical help, but some clarification would be handy....

Saw this is the "how we do things thread"

"Updated 1/12/22

- Following feedback from members, access to, and obviously the ability to post on, the ‘for sale/wanted’ section is now restricted to full members only."

Just wanted to know, what defines a "full member"??

Well, would you believe it. I went and had dinner, feel totally stuffed, came back to the forum and can see the for sale section. So you must be right!🤣

It's the number of posts you make that are approved. Then you're allowed into the wild. Beware sharks....

How do I upload video files? I can't use MP4 or webm file types, do I need to use some sought of link?

Local hosting of video files was disabled a little while ago as it was consuming huge amounts of hosting space.  So uploading to an external host and linking into your post is the way to go.

This is not a complaint (IMHO this forum is way better and more capable than any other I use) but merely an observation. If someone posts on a thread while I'm viewing an earlier post on same thread, the new one will be in bold on my notifications list, but remains in bold even after I've clicked on it again. It only goes after clicking on a later bold notification on same thread.

      Having recently had some tussles with a dead BMW ECU, I thought this was really interesting:

      Especially how the guy managed to update to a newer version of Ford Sync enabling CarPlay.
      I am tempted to really learn this side of 'shiteing' as well as mechanics.

      Hi all,
      Apologies for the downtime, there was some routing issues with our hosting provider which meant the server was cut off from the outside world. I'm finding out what went wrong and how we can avoid a repeat.

      A proper shite 90s jet ski just came up by me and I’m sorely tempted. Looks like a decent version of the year, a seadoo spi.
       
      Seems rotax powered which I remember from my karting days and I’m hoping to go and see it tomorrow. Looks like a two cylinder carb fed job.
       

       
      Anyone played with them?
       
      As usual the engines in bits and it’s missing the jet whatever that is. Presume where the prop fires water down?
       
      Are there any rules to it’s use or can I just get it running and blast about on it on the local water and lochs?

      So I’ve held off here for a month now but I’m stuck and need advice.
       
      Some of you might remember I had a Golf Turbo estate for sale in Jan. Well I sold it to Exiled_Tat_Gatherer and he paid for it with the intention of collection.
       
      But, I haven’t had a message off him in nearly 4 weeks now and I’ve messaged loads. I’ve phoned him and got voicemail. Now I’m not trying to muddy the lads credibility at all, he’s done his bit but I’m worried about not being able to get in touch.
       
      He’s in Belgium and intended to fly over and collect. I’m aware he bought numerous other cars off here and wanted to collect them all in a oner but he’s now not posted in ages.
       
      What the hell do I do? I really need the car shifting but he’s paid for it. I can’t store it forever and I’m still paying tax on it so it can be legal for him to collect.
       
      Really stuck. Any advice appreciated. I’m erring towards selling it on and refunding him if I can get hold of him but don’t want to be the arsehole.
       
      Sorry if this isn’t the way to do things but I’m really at a loss.
