I did too but I couldn't get them all. Does anyone know why I can't delete all of my pictures?
Same for me. I asked Conrad about that years ago. We weren't able to resolve it at the time (he asked for more info and I didn't pursue it beyond saying I couldn't delete older photos).

I think I'm correct in saying that you can only delete attachment photos that are in active/open threads. For any locked threads (like old editions of the recent pic thread) you can't remove the attachment. Does that make sense??
It does make sense, and if that's the case perhaps these could be unlocked for a while?

For all any of us know, it could be the mods, or perhaps one of them, or someone connected to them.

Or it could be an outside concern. Recently, a company introduced themselves in the forum, and said the following:

Just wanted to say hello and say we look forward to getting to be part of the community on this forum!
That thread can be found here:

They haven't posted a lot since then. Again, not saying it is this company or not, but as several posters have mentioned, it would be nice to know who they were financially supporting in this venture.

Those who are now running the site should speak up, if only to put rumors to rest. (Was Conrad abducted by aliens, and forced to sell out? :) Probably not, but who knows?) We all knew Conrad's history in the fat acceptance movement, but we know nothing about the new site operators or their motivations. I think this is a reasonable question.

Some of the changes made recently remind me of the setups for other forums for fat porn models -- changes to the user control panels to add friends, create albums, leave public comments. Also the change to require users to have logins to view the "adult" sections.

When the change was announced, I removed all photos of myself from the threads I've posted in over the years. It's very easy to remove your photo attachments.
ConnieLynn's suspicions may be correct because if you go and look at DiamondXMedia's other posts- just a few introducing paysite girls. Not sure if the intro was because of the paysite OR because they now run Dims. Could go either way but that intro was made on the main board and not the paysite forum.

Yes, that makes sense. Thank you. :)

If the new owner wishes to remain anonymous, could someone tell us so and maybe why? I'm rather concerned, having posted stuff in the Supersize area that I don't want some randomer having access to. :confused: Keeping a silence like this is just bizarre and makes one think that there must be something to hide.
If you posted here, or anywhere online I would never assume there is any privacy involved.

I know what you're saying, Mr. Evil, but there was a certain level of privacy assured for the supersize board. Only members and Conrad as webmaster could access it. Until we hear who has taken the reins we're left speculating and some of the possibilities are rather scary.

If people are making donations, they need to know what they are sending financial support to exactly (unless they are contacting you privately). Also if you do the shopping through here on Amazon and are helping support Dims. I find it extremely important that some light be shed on this whole thing. It's the ethical and responsible thing to do. Why keep it hush hush? I feel it makes it look a bit shady :confused:

Thank you all for starting and voicing you're opinions in this thread.

I was starting to feel like the only person with these data transparency issues around here.

Since I was wondering - and rather annoyed about - that the Library (I mainly post there) was suddenly private, I contacted the new Admin about that. The response was elusive.
Some of the Library has underage issues, but that's only a minority of the stories. And the Reader's and Writer's boards are probably the most harmless ones around.
Instead the unknown Admin plans to install a Public Library in which stories deemed as 'weight positive' according to so far undisclosed criteria shall be posted. Several historic precendents come to mind here.

Is it only my impression - or has posting and participation gone down since all these changes? Or is it just another period of fluctuation?

It's not just you. Dims has been slow for eons it seems.

In fact, I noticed that the majority of the forums came to a virtual halt the few days after Conrad bided adieu. Most of the chatter about his departure in fact was taking place elsewhere on various Facebook groups. It became lively at times.

Now I'm not meaning to cause any offence by what I am about to say, but... I really hope dimms doesn't become like fat-forums has become where it has some good content; but seems to be a porn free-for-all. I really like the fact that dimms is largely porn free because as soon as porn dominates that seems to be all most care about. I have even noticed in fat-forums that some models that used to post there all the time don't post there any more.

Although I don't post much, I am on here and other forums every day, I know not all will agree with me, but this is my 2 cents

I've been worried about this for much longer than the last few months, to be honest.

But anyhow, in general: it's 2014. Transparency! Information is good.

I must say this came as a sudden surprise. I don't check photo threads, being one of those curmudgeons who doesn't post them.

Sorry I didn't say goodbye to you, Mr. B.

As for the transparency/donation/ownership issue, I'm sure more details shall follow. If they don't, the FA/BBW online community will merely further decentralize. It's handled worse before.

Just a quick note to let you know that DiamondXMedia is not any part of an owner or part of the new administration at Dims. They are just a paysite company that shoots fat models. It's run by one of my models in a separate project with her husband photographer. Good people, but not in anyway part of Conrad's departure and/or anything more than a member here.

As for the new Admin, as a moderator I can say that he's been good and kind. He's very technical and has worked on fixing things on the back end quite a bit. I'm hopeful that he introduces himself to the community in a way that makes sense to him, but I think he's just here to really help Conrad keep Dimensions around and keep it moving with technology.

Additionally, I understand the sensitive nature of some folks content and posts. I am not negating your worry, I'm just adding my two cents in to say that I'm not worried and I've made personal posts myself. I'd be honest if I were, so not sure if that means anything to anyone, but it might help some of those in the meantime. I'm not really sure what I'm trying to say here as a whole, but hopefully I'm making a bit of sense because I'm confusing the heck out of myself.

In closing, I think the new guy is a good guy. That's just my opinion, but I'm hopeful it'll become the opinion of most of you with further discussion and possible participation from the new regime as well. :)

Hugs all around!

Heather - your post shows you're a good mod and kind person.

I was MIA for some time over the summer - but which time frame are we talking about by now? Weeks? Months?

As the most basic manners, I was taught: If you're new somewhere, you go introduce yourself! First thing! Especially if you're the new guy in charge of something and expect others to work with you (or in this case- post on your board)!

Have I missed out on some massive cultural shift regarding these basic manners?

My concern is that one time I was misidentified as a habitual alias bad poster by the hyde park moderator and was not only banned from hyde park but was completely locked out of Dimensions. It took an e-mail to Conrad and about two weeks to straighten this out and clear my user ID. Who does one contact now if a moderator mistakingly blackballs you?
