    OK ....tried again this morning to add the link and got DENIED again. It says something about new posts aren't allowed multiple url's and no swear words.....
    I'm trying to add a link to a pdf file that is in reference to the "MA3-SPA identifier" posting. I got an answer from a member on the shortwing.org site and am just trying to link it here for others to reference.
    Maybe someone else can try to link it for me....

    That is true. Non paying members can't post links. Too many spamers were using the feature.

    Pacerfgoe Is this the Link? I believe the referenced PDF is in post #5.

    http://www.shortwingpipers.org/forum...ifier-Question

    PS: If you purchased a membership you would be able to post the links - if you hadn't figured that out already. Not trying to guilt you into buying one, just saying that's why you can't post the link, It's a reasonable anti-spam feature on Steve's part. Hope the link is correct and this is of help.

    PPS: I see somebody already posted the link over on the original thread. Sorry for the duplicate effort here.

    We recently had to deal with a major spam attack. In this case it was by adding bogus users with links in their profile.

    Send me the link in PMs and tell me which thread you want it added to and I will get in added for you.

    Thanks!

    I'm a member over on the sister site....Shortwingpipers.org. I come over here to gain a little knowledge, and to give a little to others, but would rather spend the money on my plane than to become a member here. No hard feelings at all on my end, and I do understand the rules now. I hope you don't get pissed at me for not being a member....I just need to manage my spare cash....
    Thanks to those that made the effort to link the thread from the other site...

    Pacerfgoe,

    No problem at all! We actually will likely implement the same requirement on shortwingpipers.org before long. It is sad to have to do it, but it is the way it is.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, George!

    BTW, A woman from Juneau spoke at a conference I was just at in Nashville. She works at Alaska Litho and said she did not know you (it's on Airport road of all things). I said I find that hard to believe....
