    Back from vacation!

    Okay, there is NO WAY I have the time to catch up on 68 pages.

    Did I miss anything? LOL
    Why, yes, indeedy, there is a way to catch up on 68 pages!
    First, have some time.
    Open this thread.
    Go to THREAD TOOLS
    Choose SHOW PRINTABLE VERSION
    choose "Show 100 posts from this thread on one page"

    It's mostly text, cuts out most pictures (we must make some sacrifices) but it's an easy way to catch up. Just make sure you start near the end, not when the thread first began back in ...er... whenever

      Yes, wonderful. I have tons of pictures, as soon as I get them sorted I'll upload a bunch to photobucket.

      My muse had a nice vacation too... and is chatty again. Squee! Will be writing a fair bit this weekend.

      Very squee!!!!!

        I know nothing about how the whole server thing works but suddenly having thousands more pictures uploaded can not be a good thing surely.
        Virtually all pics you see here aren't hosted on GW, so I can't see how they can strain GW's servers. Photobucket's perhaps Anyway, as to the size of the picture. Personally, if it's bigger than the computer screen, it's too big. A dozen pictures posted in a row shouldn't be more than say 3x5 snapshot size, and in quoting, if you you want to point out one particular photo, I see no harm in it. I mean, to say "Wow, I really liked that picture!" and not include it will just leave folks confused...

        Basically, copy the text/pictures you're directly referring back to. It only make sense.

          But you can do this by posting the link to the pic rather than the pic itself- so that if people are not sure which pic you are talking about they can click the link and see. In that way you are not breaking the forum rules.

            If ever there was doubt us whumpers are weird the obsession with vomit would be evidence enough.

              Welcome back BTW!!!!!!
              ((HUGS)) Thanks SLC. I'll still post links, but you're right about the fun factor. At the same time, I understand the reasoning.

              And thanks! Great to be back! Must give attention to chattering muse. Have two stories near completion and a new "novel" idea circling (ready to swoop in for the kill I think. LOL)

                OMG, what a great idea! I'll try that when I have some time. *G*

                Thanks Prion!

So, perhaps it's up to people such as myself to point things out that I know to be against forum rules. Things that were passed down to me. When I joined, posters such as Flo and Beanie pointed out the error of anyone's ways immediately. I've never felt comfortable doing that as it seemed a bit - officious, and I feel uncomfortable doing it really. However, perhaps that was an error on my part. I think the mods do rely on threads such as this and the JFT to be self-moderated to a certain extent, and with so many senior posters leaving the forum, perhaps I should have been more of a mummy here.
                  So, sorry folks!
                  most of these threads are pretty much self-moderating, and as long as you do it politely, there's nothing wrong with virtually tapping someone on the shoulder and pointing out mistakes. It bugs me it when a person makes a mistake, and someone just jumps all over them and rants and raves.

                  Usually you find out if you make a glaring errors (gasp!) when a mod removes your post or emails you. That's how you find out your signature is, hmm, what was I always told, 'vastly exceeding the size' or something like that and then I'd do look at someone else's sig elsewhere and go, 'well, if I'm vast, he's humungous!'

                    That's exactly what I was saying. According to the mod post we're supposed to upload the pics as attachments directly to GW therefore the pictures would be hosted by GW's server as opposed to photobucket or a similar site as they are now. This is why I'm finding that post so difficult to comprehend. Maybe I read it wrong.

                      . We visited Mount St. Helens (still a steaming, active volcano) and took the North Cascades Hwy. (widely considered one of the most scenic byways on the US West coast) Definitely will share pics at some point for those interested.

                        Huh? Am I reading this correctly that we're not supposed to use links to PB? That doesn't make sense to me... *confused*

                        Or maybe they're just talking about hotlinking to other sites (where it's not a picture posted in a hosting acount that you own) THAT I can understand and agree with.

                        Maybe my brain is still on vacation?

                          Oh yes - looking forwward to seeing the pics!!!

                          I agree surely they are not talking about your own Photobucket account when they say no hotlinking.....otherwise that wouldnt make any sense.

                            Hmm, that sorta makes no sense. That would definitely overload their servers. I mean, the sigs alone would scream DISASTER! in bandwidth usage. Which mod post are you referring to? I mean, photobucket is designed for precisely what we fans are using it for.

                              This post here

                              This part in particular.

                              There is a great way to attach pictures to the thread, using them to make thumbnails so that folks can see what's there without that same picture downloading over and over and over. Just use the attachments button below. This is the preferred way of posting pictures!

                              Now I realise they are not suggesting everyone does this with every picture but if this is the "preferred" method and everyone started using it surely it would slow the server down more than using PB.

                              Iz confuzzled!

                                SQUEE!!!! Welcome back SGAFan!!! *bouncing madly*


                                Ah.. the custard filled long johns. Just another comment I made that went to the gutter in record time. It would have made you proud. Did I mention I love this group!

                                A bit OT but very important nonetheless: In case you missed, they are doing the Sunday brunch at VancouverCon. Tickets not on sale yet. Consider this a heads up if you don't want to miss it!
