Too all members:-

We have posted dozens and dozens of photos recently and this is good for both members and the site in general though I do need to ask for a favour here. Please be sure to accurately provide information as detailed above the comment field in each thread (See point 6).

There have been a few occasions where images have been placed in the incorrect thread or comment and at the moment, whilst being told that a mistake has been made, the correct information is still something I am waiting to receive. What may seem obvious to submitters often isn't obvious to me. Please do not be cryptic - this is of no use to me when I am doing a batch upload in the wee hours after a long day at work. On the subject of time, due to work commitments, this is something that I seem to be chronically short of and regrettably, I cannot be here as often as I'd like.

I need:-

1. Your username.
2. The post number.
3. The title of the thread.
4. The forum the thread is located in.

Over the last few years, the quality of submitted photos has vastly improved but there is still the odd occasion where blurry or dark images are sent in. These are of no use so please do not send these in and I will reserve the right not to publish them. Photos should be taken in an area where there is plenty of light. Look at your photos before submitting them. If they are not sharp and the correct brightness and contrast please take the photos again. Where a photo is blurry, this can often be cured by standing further back from the subject and using the zoom to capture the correct subject/background ratio.

All very sensible points.

Once again, thanks Brad for putting in the effort of getting the pictures uploaded and added to the threads as requested. It's a task that may seem to go un-noticed, but I think everyone here truly appreciates the time that you go to getting everything running tip-top around here.

Is there a reason why members don't post their own photos by using Imgur etc etc ?
I post my own photos on my posts here using Imgur and similar sites and it's free.
But perhaps I'm the odd one out here and in doing so this is not how people want it done?
But the way I see it,,, it's easy to do and fast and saves Brad having to come home from work and find time to upload people's photos.

Pete

Some members do use sites like that but it's not commonplace here and I tend to understand why.

For a start, image hosting sites don't always stay free. Photobucket is a recent example of this. They went from free to fee and without much warning and this created the biggest disruption on tens of thousands of forums around the world. I would personally prefer the minor inconvenience of uploading the photos here.

There will one day be an opportunity for me to either finish converting this site to ASP.NET and this will once again permit members to upload photos in real time though for now, it is not a priority.

Ah, I thought the points referred to the 4 points in your post. Nevermind then.. Grin
