hard to use this site

Posted · Report post

I go to the "other" site and get around just fine. What gives here? Will I ever come back? This would be in my "blog", but I cannot figure out how to work that, either. I can't upload pics here, I have tried and tried and tried and tried and tried and tried and tried, and I have had about enough. If I can't get help. I will not use this site. That means the "other" site will get my attention. I prefer your magazine to the other one. But I need a response, I need HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's strange, most people on that "other site" hate the new look there and have a million complaints about how hard it is to use! ;)

Lets get theis straightened out.

From the top folks.............Chris what website is hosting your photos? Photobucket, Fotki? If we had this info, someone who is using the same host could instruct you further.

If I can't get help. I will not use this site.

It does not really seems the way to handle things by 'threatning' of leaving the website, just use the help-functions and READ!

Where I was used to PhPBB completely, this site was completely different for me. However, with just a healthy set of brains and read through the different topics, I managed to navigate quite well and is a piece of cake.

And frankly, I never seen somebody not being able to wander around here. But given the fact that you are only here if people give you 'this board'-101, than I would suggest you set your priority's right.

The odd thing is.........we were trying to help him. I guess he expected instant answers to his queries. I guess there's no pleasing some people. Still maybe it's better not to have a guy around with a hair trigger anyway.

I gave him an instant answer! I told him how to post photos within minutes of his post. In fact I gave him 2 different ways to do it.

He claimed he tried 6 times but it didn't work.

Let's see... it works for everyone else, but he claims it "doesn't work". So where does that suggest the problem lies? With the site... or with whatever method he was using to try and post pictures? :)

What an entrance! Wow, I thought I could be impatient at times.

This strikes me as humorous because he is not even in the right hobby if he wants instant gratification! :)

I cant see where it's really that difficult, I figured it out and I'm a computer moron. :P

Like Neil Armstrong said... "That's one small step for a man..." :P

What gets me is not that he didn't know how to post photos, but that after I told him how to do it he claimed it doesn't work! :blink:

[url=http://public.fotki.com/Builderman/my-most-recent-build/]I'>http://public.fotki.com/Builderman/my-most-recent-build/]I have learned a couple of things. 1- that people here will help if you ask, and 2-don't drink alcohol and post. I hope there are no hard feelings. Maybe I am getting the hang of "FOTKI", maybe not. we will see.http://public.fotki.com/Builderman/my-most-recent-build/

Well, no luck so far. url="http://public.fotki.com/Builderman/my-most-recent-build/

I might get it sometime.

BTW, I work 72+ hours a week as a toolmaker, I don't get to play on the internet all day.

I tried to edit your post with the link you have.

The URL does not specify what the extension is for the image.

If you click on the image in Fotki, there is a SHARE button

Click that, and you get the URL to copy and paste here:

Ofcourse not, but just take it easy, help will come here, but like you said, we don't have all day to play on the net. Just be patient, :o Something you must be if you practice this hobby anyway ;)
