All members should be aware that there have been some changes to the file paths of the upload space.

The old domain for uploads via the member center upload tool:
http://files.abovetopsecret.com/uploads/_____

The NEW domain for uploads via the member center upload tool:
http://files.abovetopsecret.com/uploads/_____

As you upload files, please make sure you note the new path information. You won't need to worry about any alterations to old posts with previously uploaded files, we're taking care of that on this end.



The new domain for these member uploads is the first in our series of changes as we move from CacheFly to a higher performance Content Delivery Network (CDN) as we prepare for our new media sharing site.

Once the new site is fully functional, the old upload tool in the member center will be phased out.

It depends on how the new file upload tool works. If it is setup similar to the old one...you will just copy and past the file path for the picture you are trying to upload same as before and wont have to remember the actual file path. If it is different then they will probably have a tutorial thread for everyone. They are very good about that stuff.

Are you sure we do not need to change the path files of exisiting images. I just went to the thread where I last loaded an ats/cahcefly image and it is now going to an external source.

Here, check it out. It is a BTS post (wryly) but you can see how the integrity of the post is compromised by having to click to an external image.

Seems to be working like the old one...just copy and paste the same as before.

nice, and about time the current upload area is naff tastic, while you're at it can you please sort out a link on the threads that takes me to my last comment, ploughing through the pages is annoying.

Do you mean a button like the one that says "thread" at the bottom of every post?

Edited to add: it does not take you to the last comment, it shows all your posts on that thread.

On topic, I do not use ATS to store my files (just a few cases), so I will not see any difference, but I noticed that accessing the Member Upload Space from BTS does not work.

Skeptic Overlord, I checked one of my threads and my images are also now "external image" hyperlinks. Can you allow us to edit our original Opening Post to change the upload name path? Or are you guys going to do that over time?
Just like TheWayISeeIt said, our posts don't look good without the actual pictures in the O.P.

Me too...what's the score?

I imagine the lack of S.O. posting here means he's busy sorting it already.
