Does the same thing happen in all forums or is it just the ID forum giving you problems? Clearing your cache, closing your browser, and restarting your computer as @Kevin suggested, is where I'd start. I might also suggest going into your account settings and reset them, even if it means resetting them to the same settings. I only say that because I have first hand experience with strange things happening because of a mysterious change to my settings. There's probably no connection but it might be worth looking into.

Disclaimer: Just tossing out ideas without any knowledge of which I speak.

Cleared cache and now all good, thank you very much.

It's okay, it must be hard to keep up with two moderators and a pretty prolific spammer. To be clear, I wasn't blaming you for taking so long, just letting you know when it happened.

No, I understood that, and definitely didn't take it as criticism. But I wish the spammers would consider our schedules LOL!

I’m getting very close to hitting the attachment limit, @aveschapinas @Kevin, there’s no way to get around it other than by creating a new account, right? I’m not going to be able to embed all my photos from ebird, as there are some that I don’t put on ebird or don’t have on there just yet. Screenshots are a a other thing.  

No, I don't think so. The limit was raised once but I don't think that will happen again. 

You could host your photos on another site and link them here.

Thanks again to everyone who is helping us by reporting the spam posts. Admin is trying to see if there are any tools we can use to help keep them out... otherwise Kevin and I will keep playing Sisyphus.

More like playing Whack-A-Mole.  There might be something our hosting service or Internet provider can do.

Yeah, @Kevin's Spam breakfast was a little light today!

I'm starving! For a guy who is used to 4 eggs with a couple pieces of bacon or sausage, not to mention a few slices of bread every morning, 28 spams doesn't go very far.

LOL I guess I can't invite you over for breakfast then; my usual chard, plantains, beans, fruit, and whole-wheat bread might not do it for you.
