    Ok, So How Do We Post Pictures?

    I checked the FAQ and haven't figured out how to post the pics. Where do we find out how?

    Default Here's a Picture

    Given that photos can't (yet) be posted, I can
    provide the following diagram:

    And if that's not all, here's me on a bike!

    Okay, I messed around with this forum last night but not sure its complete. Go ahead and test it. Until all the kinks are worked out, anything that is posted is subject to deletion, so beware. But please give it a try.

    OK, it works, and if that picture don't bust it, it should last forever.

    Hobie, the swarm is moving from the white bucket to the box.
    This is where they came from.

    I figured it was something like that. That is cool. A bit high in a spindly tree for my liking, but cool.

    Default Testing 1..2..3..

    Well, Image tags are working fine, image links seem to work fine too:





    Barry, were you thinking of allowing attachments? Using image tags isn't a whole lot different from posting urls- it just displays the pictures in-line. Attachments would allow folks to upload stuff (pictures, documents, etc.) from their local disk. This would be handy for them if they don't have a site to upload pictures to, but I can imagine you might not want to enable that feature..

    Hey George -

    I was playing around with the attachments settings also. It just got too late for me brain to function properly so I shut down. I need to look up and see how much server space I have left, now that I've deleted the old board files off of it. If plenty there, I'll be inclined to allow attachments, up to a limit of course. If donations keep coming in, I would be able to purchase a bit more disk space on the server.

    Ok! Allowing attachments certainly has it's pros and cons and I can understand your concerns. FWIW, being able to put pictures in-line with image tags is neat but posting a URL is almost as good. Being able to post attachments would be a privilege in deed and well worth consideration. Limits on type of content and attachment size would first on the list but there are other issues too. It might be a service provided only to members in good standing, whatever that means. You wouldn't want this place to turn into a free (and possibly illegal) file exchange site You also don't want to be held responsible for people posting copyrighted material or other stuff with limited distribution requirements, etc.

    A potential can of worms...

    Keep us apprised of your thoughts on this.

    Default Pic Posting in English

    Are there instructions on how to post pics without using computer language?

    We belong to a forum that charges $19 a year to be a member. Being a member means you have the privilege of posting attachments, pictures, etc. on the forum servers. The notation "NES Member" sits below your name. It seems to work well. I've given money to this forum and will again, but if you were to start a regular membership I'd be for that, too.

    Note that the forum itself is still free and available to all. There is an NES Member forum that only members can access, but everything else is open to the masses.

    Cool I figured it out

    You can only post pictures in the Photo Gallery forum. You have to open an account at Photobucket or have it in some other website. You then upload the photo into your account. At Photobucket they make it easy to translate the picture to computer language. Flickr did not work for me. You enclose the photo address in "[img]http:****[/img]".

    You actually can post pictures in the other forums, but as a courtesy to people on dialup you're asked not to. I've seen pix in the other forums, so I know it's possible. It's better to keep them here.
