WOW, what's up with this? Sharkey and I go at it about his undying love and devotion for everything Outerlimits but dang it's all in fun for pete's sake. I post photo's here too along with many other people. If someone has a problem with Sharkey it's purely personal because Tim is really a great guy and he is fun to go back and forth with and disagree with here on OSO.
I say let Sharkey post me...he's the kind of guy this sport needs and this website needs!

This post is not intended to cause a uproar, I'm just trying to understand the situation....

Posting pictures for everyone's viewing pleasure is one thing..... Posting pictures and putting a $$$ on them is another....

I think with all Sharkeys support and effort he should get a free ad.

Where are all the "other guys" pictures?.....I dont see them.
Maybe Tim should charge OSO for bringing some entertainment value to their board that we pay to be members of.
It sounds to me like one of the moderators running amuck again....I dont believe Steve would make a business decision to have requested the pics be removed.

Thanks For your all your support and pictures Sharkey. You've always been good to us and we love the pictures and warehousing of related boat racing information.

So does this mean if you posted all the pics for free and "suggested" a donation you would be ok?

Thank you for the photos of Ms.Geico They are awesome!

Good luck and stay in touch.

With the ink marks on them I would assume they were for sale .

I agree he does bring a lot of good picks to the form.The tributes are good!!Let him post them or be a advertiser.

I guess the issue is when he started to watermark them and offer them for sale on his site. Tim, I am kinda divided on this one since I appreciate all you've done for the sport and all the great pics you take. But I can also see OSO's side since some people are paying fairly hefty fees to be an advertiser here and trying to sell photos also. Hopefully you and Steve can work out something equitable so that everyone can be happy, sure would miss all the pics you post up

Does anyone really care if they are for sale? Without his pics there would be less than half the amount of Poker Run and Race pics on this site. He took the pics and it is his right to share them and do what he wants with them. Otherwise these forums will just turn in to typed up whining areas for all of us. What fun is whining without pictures?
