kinda jacked...
Dec 27th, 2008 at 8:54am
 
Ok, i know i am new around here... lol... anyway.


I just noticed that there were alot of pics uploaded by one person. I tried to search that person on the forums and they dont seem to even have a forum account. is that really cool?


Seems like they are using WR bandwidth to store their pics and not contributing to the site otherwise... kinda messed up is all...


I mean it's not enough that they load 30 pics at a time, so EVERYONE gets knocked off the homepage, but to knock everyone off and not even have an account to know the rules that you are breaking...


anyway,, not trying to start trouble.. just seemed messed up to me. seems like it should be mandatory to have an account in the forums to take advantage of our gallery is all... as well as to know the gallery rules before you post there.

You are right Ron.

I've been thinking about a way how to handle this since Chuck brought a similar problem to my attention.
I have a few ideas I need to pass by the Admin team to come to a workable solution

BTW, the person you might be referring to does have an account here

First off I want to point out that I am not criticizing the post.I do agree with it,but sometimes we have new folks who try to join up and don't realize they are doing things wrong and thats why we are here, to try and point out there mistakes and help get them started on the right track.I joined a forum once and filled out the registration wrong,but instead of sending me a PM or email me and let me know what I did wrong,he proceded to chew me out right on the open forum like I was some kind of idiot,about how I was causing him a lot of extra work and he didn't like that.My response was to hit the membership delete button.Just my 2cents.

I am assuming you are referring to me and the last I knew I am a member of this site.  If you read my response to JimQ you would see that I publicly apologized.  Whenever someone starts using another feature of anything camera, computer, forum picture gallery they are not going to be perfect starting out.  I read the boasts on this forum how friendly and helpful people are here.  So rather than get jacked get helpful and send me a PM as boxxmaker suggest and I will gladly comply.  There are so many topics and such here that I missed the post about pictures and five at a time, which I saw for the first time, right before I saw this thread.  I again publicly apologize for making the mistake in the picture gallery.   I also apologize for taking such offense to this thread.

Dale,

It's all good!  No harm was done in the posting of the pics.  As you now know we try to limit to 5 pics a day, that way more can share the first page of the gallery for whatever time they have before being bumped to the next page.  Good looking stuff by the way!

Thanks Dave,

I truly did not mean to foul things up.  I now know better and will gladly follow the rule.  Thanks for your kind comments on my work.

Dale,  No problem.  You replied to my note about the error politely.  I don't think you'll do it again, now that you know the rule.  You weren't the first, and I'm sure you won't be the last.  A lot of new members have gotten carried away the first time they post in the gallery.

Like others have said, it is beautiful work.

Hi Dale,

And welcome.  Don't beat yourself up over a mistake, I made one too one time.  Also, I was here three months before I realised there was a forum I didn't know about, the Totally Off Topic (TOT) boards.  I didn't enter my date of birth on my profile so that part of the forum didn't show.

Your work is excellent.

I did it when I first started also.  Besides, isn't the guy motto "Put it together, then read the instructions".  Applies here as well.

Now that the air is cleared again, let's see some shavings flying to the rafters.

Dale,

No harm Dale. Like Jim mentioned, you are not the first one to do this.  Chuck mentioned to me a different person and slightly different problem.

Among the things I'm looking into is having the software restrict uploads to 5 a day per member. I'm also trying to figure out some kind of reminder in the upload page so there are no surprises.

All this is why we keep Ron around.  Good job friend.  Yes, we have rules, but we don't normally beat folks up too bad for breaking them.  I'm sure Ron meant no harm by his original post either.  Good idea to send an email when someone does make a mistake.  I've received them on this and other boards.  Pretty nice courtesy we can give folks.

Both good ideas Ron.  I joined this forum one or two years ago and even if I had been told the picture rule at that time I probably would not have remembered it when I started using the gallery a year or so later.  I think a 5 pic block with a message stating why is a good idea.  Or a pop up that says "Remember 5 pic max per day thanks WR" or something to that effect when someone is uploading.  I hope all is well.

Hey Dale

I just added the text on the upload page.

Like Doug said, I meant no harm, it was just that my coffee didn't kick in yet.

My bad Dale. I actually tried to search you out here in the forums. Unfortunately for me, i am not very good with the search thingy. i was gonna send you a friendly message making you aware of the rule, but i got frustrated when my search brought no results for your nick. Anyway..


PS... you do have some really nice work!!

Dale,
Neat work. I enjoyed viewing them. You have obvioulsy been putting in some hours on the lathe. I thought I would comment here instead of each pic.

keep up the good work.

  I just wanted to take a few minutes here and point out that it is possible to find out if a person is a member in this forum easily.  Up towards the top, below the links for the chatroom and featured artist and such there is a series of button and the 4th from the left says members.  Click on it and you can arrange them alphabetically or by date of joining or a couple of other ways I can't think of right now.

thanks for the tip Philip. I actually tried that first, but with my SUPER slow dialup, when i tried to change the list criteria the page would not load hardly and i got frustrated and tried the search engine.


Next time i think i will just let the mods worry about it.. seem to have gotten myself into a bit of a pickle with my big mouth!! lol.
