hey mate because FM doesn't support pictures buggered if i know why (mega pain in the ars)Maybe morgs shud put that as a thing to do for 2008 for FISHING MONTHLY:P u have to use a different site to support it eg photobucket http://photobucket.com/

Image

now you have to make a log in which is free once you have completed this you are free to start uploading by simply clickin on the browse button and finding your fishy image you want BUT BE AWARE THAT YOU IF THE PICTURE IS LARGER THEN 1024 x 768 Pixels which most digital cameras are this days it will take longer to upload

Image

once you have uploaded your pictures (best to do one at a time because it can take up to a couple of minutes to do one photo) after you have sucessfully uploaded your pictures you are ready now to copy the support link over to your FISHING MONTHLY POST

Image

once you have copied this pasted it where you want it to appear in you FISHING MONTHLY POST like this Image

and now you are ready to start showing off your fish you caught on your last fishing trip that you have been talking up for ages

Just so you know ... FMG doesn't allow the uploading of images to our server for two reasons.

1- FMG primary site already consumes 1GB of webspace. If we allowed the upload of images this would fill our server real quickly - taking our site offline.

2- FMG primary site uses in excess of 20GB bandwidth usage on a monthly basis. If we hosted images on your behalf we would easily double that monthly usage.

When images are hosted on 3rd party image hosts they bear the space and traffic of those images

Cheers
Webmaster

Ron,

I'm not sure what you are asking.

But I will clarify - >

You CAN use any 3rd party image host you like to host images for our boards. FMG however, does not supply you somewhere to store your images. It is up to you where you put them (NB: most ISP's offer hosting space with internet packages - this is probably more complicated than using photobucket and the like)

So images are good - keep on using them

Cheers
Webmaster

Life is a lot simpler if you use a 3rd part to host your images.
If you post to a couple of different boards you have two advantages
1. You can more or less use the same text on both, and all you pics show up no worries!
2. No two board upload images the same way (or so it seems), and some are really complex! So life is a bit simpler for you as you only have to remember one way!

There is a slight risk for the board owner, in that if photobucket or similar should go toes up, they might suddenly have a lot of posts with no pictures in them! But has not happened so far!

Hi fellas.

I tried to send this as a pm to the site manager but they've hidden themselves away from Joe Public.

Firstly this moderator approval idea before a message is posted is a nonsense. Takes days (literally) to post a message and then days (literally) to get a response.

A simple question and answer exchange takes a week if the moderator I encountered is involved.

Ditto with the pix posting process.

All of these management tools might be part of a risk management process but the site has ended up knackered by over regulation. Might have been knackered from the start for all I know.

This forum is the electronic version of a camel which is simply a racehorse designed by a committee.

OK I've had my say. Now I'm off never to return to even see how long it takes to approve and post this message (if posted at all).

8.01 pm Qld time 12 Nov 10

X2 on photobucket, that's what I use to link all my images. Great service for free.

Photobucket is the best in posting pics in forum. Just get the codes and paste it here.
Q1 Resort, this really a nice place. :)
