I appreciate all the work you guys are doing bringing this site online and up to snuff.
I'm sure there is more work to be done and there may be hiccups along the way. Obviously some issues will be more irritating than others. But for the price of admission we all need to remember this is a work in progress and our job as users is to politely inform those working on the site of the issues we run into so they can find salutations.
This is from my experience an excellent group of guys and I'm sure glad to be a part of this community. Lets all try to make things easier on the guys working on the site by trying to contain our frustration and just make them aware of problems and if your tech savy enough potential salutations.

The tech guys are doing a great job. Things have come a long way since I first logged on.  They seem to be very knowledgeable and patient.  Heart

With the SSL issues out of the way, I personally have two more suggestions for improvement:

  1. User galleries would be very nice, I think: https://www.mybbhacks.com/demoforum/ezgallery.php
  2. A responsive theme such as Emerald
       
Thanks,
Robin

Not sure what I'm doing wrong but I can't post pictures unless I use Postimages.org
I think I saw something about a size limit to pictures.
What is the best way to post a picture here without a link form postimages.org?

Quote:The maximum size for that type of file is 500 kilobytes.

500k is significantly less than most smartphone cameras produce. Simple workaround for you: Install a second camera app, set it to a low resolution, and you should stay below 500k.

That said, I think a proper user gallery with a more generous maximum file size would be better. I don't know the stats for this site, but I doubt the server is anywhere near the download limit of its plan. But I may be wrong.

Thank you. I used to use an app to resize pictures. I'll see if I still have it. I'm on several forums and frequently use the same pictures so it may be easiest to just resize the picture for the ones with size limits.

There are several online resources available, eg https://www.reduceimages.com/
