Title: Photo Posting Poll
Post by: terlingua11 on June 05, 2018, 12:00:05 PM
Not to beat a dead horse, but are there any plans in the works to resurrect the "Attachments and other options" feature to post an image on a thread post. I've seen in the past that there have been threads with polling buttons for certain subjects. I'm not sure how to do that on the forum, and it most likely can only be done through a moderator, however if someone can do it lets take a poll. Who currently likes the way you post a picture and who prefers the old old way of doing so.

The reason I'm going back to this is I can tell by reading quite a few threads that there would usually be an image associated with the post. Either for something for sale etc. There are more and more "email me for pictures" when they should just be posted in the thread. My hunch is there are quite a few out there that haven't mastered, nor want to deal with the new posting method. The lack of images certainly takes away from the interest factor IMHO.

So if you know how to create a thread with a poll, please do so. It would be interesting to see how many feel the old way was much better-

I definitely prefer the old way.  I can not figure out how to post a picture and am envious of those that can.  Also, these super huge pictures are very inconvenient.  I can never see the complete car/image, I have to scroll and only see a part of the car at any given time.

Post by: Dkutz on June 05, 2018, 12:36:29 PM
yeah its definitely a hassle.  Hopefully it can be returned to the OLD WAY
Title: Re: Photo Posting Poll
Post by: KR Convertible on June 05, 2018, 01:16:45 PM
The old way was a little simpler, at least for small thumbnails you had to click on to enlarge.  I definitely like the larger images, except when they are too big (over 1000 width) and you have to scroll.  I'm not sure what caused the dreaded black box on the old forum, but I will suffer with the new way over that!

It would be great to have a one step (e.g., click) process for uploading pics to a thread / post versus having to load to the forum and then to a thread or post.  And, it's not as easy as two steps, really.  There are more steps involved with posting to the forum than one click, let alone to a thread or post afterwards.

For some reason the quote "Let them eat cake" comes to my mind. What is the difference between a "real problem" and a "perceived problem" ? I found it easier to create a link to different site that I could post picture .

I was able to use "my gallery" a few times, but now can't seem to get it to work at all - it says something about selecting a category(?)

I've gone back to the "old way" of 3rd party hosting (currently using IMGUR), and it seems to be OK
Title: Re: Photo Posting Poll
Post by: Richstang on June 05, 2018, 10:31:47 PM
It really doesn't take that much time to post to the gallery then to your post, maybe an extra minute.
Yes, It's not as easy as the attachment version, but the large displayed image is a big plus.

You can also keep the size within the screen size by adding in " width=999" after img.
Leave a space so it looks like this "img width=999".
I've not only done this with my posts, but also to others oversized photos, when I want to reply.

I know exactly how everybody feels. I prefer the Old Shelby's to the new ones. I just don't like they way the new ones look or sound or handle. Sure its new and improved but I like the old way they sound/handle.

While we're at it do you think we can go back to the flip phone and get rid of all the touch face glass thingies? Man I love the old flips. It use to make me feel like I was asking Scotty to beam me up... those were the days.

Life is so darn tough nowadays.   ;)

You are missing the point big time.

We went backwards. Forum 2.0 went back to the flip phone era.  Sure we had the dreaded black box issue that never got resolved in Forum 1.0, but posting pictures was up to date.

No other forum I've seen operates like this one.

The crash of Forum 1.0 and the issues with Forum 2.0 does not bode well for SAAC.

It's not that life is tough, people will get fed up and just stop participating.

I'm not sure you know how everyone feels.

I appreciate the point of view "just learn the new way" but if you read the majority, they are saying "THE NEW WAY" is terrible and not an improvement and I for one agree with them. 

If your in the software business, the first thing you learn is any program has to be intuitive in order for it to be successful.  Could you imagine going back to the DOSS days, NO and neither can anyone else. 

The developer can fix this easily if they will, if they don't they just don't care or not interested in taking some extra time to fix it because now it is just a work around. 

Make it easy, retain and gain more people!

There is some sort of presumption here that "the new way works for all". It doesn't for me. I can't post a picture here by any method.

So I'm just going to go right to the point and call "shotgun"...or BS if you prefer?  ;)

The bottom line is that the administrator needs to fix this. Considering past performance, I'm not holding my breath. Maybe in a year or two he might feel motivated? I don't know?

I get you Greg however, the majority you refer to is the majority of respondents in this thread, not the majority of users on this site. Others that don't have an issues simply don't respond to this thread most likely because it has nothing to do with Shelby's like MANY of the threads on this site.

As far as you reference to DOS, I use it every day because it is POWERFUL not because it is easy.

I do agree with the statements about the administrators lack of participation.

.... as we can see, we all have an opinion. My original request was to add a poll post. Lets get it up and take a vote. That way we will know if there is a vast majority who can do it and are just keeping quiet and could care less about the old way. Or is there a vast majority of those who can't figure it out, or can but feel it's more of a hassle to go through the steps to do so and have stopped posting pictures or don't frequent the site as often.

Put up the poll and let the members vote!

I agree with Jim P. We are not necessarily talking about the "power user". Those individuals will most likely get it. But what about the occasional user, or weekly user who has something important to add. Either it be some documentation they would like to show, or an image of something they would like to sell.... or an image of something they would like clarification on. We will miss out on those images because those individual will not either understand or want to go threw all the steps to upload an image. I guess that is the reason why I posted this in the first place. I think the club will loose out on valuable information with the picture upload format it currently has. I figured out how to do it, that's not my point. It's the bigger picture of what we as a club ( SAAC ) are going to be missing out on from an image database. As they say, a pictures worth a 1000 words......

Find an image on the internet or upload an image on the internet using a hosting service.  Do the same with the image you uploaded into your gallery if you can't host the photo or find it elsewhere on the internet.
Right click the photo in question and copy the URL
Paste the URL in between the img tags after clicking the photo icon.  Done!

I think this is the point. 

Whether you love the new way or the old way, why can't it be simpler?  I think we would all agree a button that says "upload picture" that when clicked, takes you to your files on your hard drive where you select your photo and it is uploaded.

My question is.... can it not be that simple on this site, it is on other sites.  If it can't, just say it can't and be done with it and then every has to live with it or not.

This back and forth of defending the new vs. old doesn't matter.  The fact is, it is not intuitive without instructions and it should be.

I personally haven't had any trouble posting pics here on Forum v2 and didn't think it was a big deal but decided to run a test just to see some real number differences between two forums.

Made a dummy reply and went through all the upload image steps but didn't actually hit "Post" on both this forum and the Concours forum.

I had not posted any pics here for awhile and the first attempt took me 70 seconds but was fumbling through it. I made a second attempt which only took 25 seconds after refreshing my memory on the process. Adding a second photo took 12-13 seconds. I could not get the "Bulk Upload" feature to work.

Posting a single photo on the Concours forum took 10 seconds. Doesn't look like it supports adding bulk photos at once but adding a second photo only took 4-5 seconds.

FWIW...

Hosting a picture, whether it be here or on a dedicated hosting site is the work around.

It should just be way easier. There should be a manage attachments button that will automatically size the picture and post it.

Those Software add-ons have been around for 15 years now.

I think were are looking for a solution without a problem.

Some sites are easier? Then post pictures there. I go to those site too so I will see the picture.

Several of us have offered solutions to the non-problem yet some still grumble "it's to hard".

If you not willing to use the tools available then don't. I'm sure then rest of us will cope.

This is just picture posting elitism if you ask me. Maybe you should be given a special badge for accomplishing that?


I just donít think this site needs to cater to the lowest common denominator.  Oh wait, that sounds elitist. I admit it, Iím an elitist because I can post pictures. Whereís may badge?

(http://www.sympato.ch/smileys/Duel.gif)

So now I'm the lowest common denominator? Really? I'll remember that and that YOU said it.  ;)

Lol (yes Iím laughing at you)

The expression "lowest common denominator" is used to describe (usually in a disapproving manner) a rule, proposal, opinion, or media that is deliberately simplified so as to appeal to the largest possible number of people.

I think you guys are missing the big picture.

If you want to keep the site limited to 2-25 guys, your way (hosting) is ok.

We need to face the fact that everyone expects picture loading to be fast and easy. If they want to encourage more participation, we need to do it. It is obviously doable as other sites have had it for close to 15 years. Nobody is arguing that you cannot load a picture. Please don't explain anymore that because you can do it, our system is fine.

It is a rare occasion someone new comes aboard here. Have you wondered if we had more content (Pictures) if that would change? Or did you want it to be a tiny exclusive club?

A club that is not growing is dying.

When a COLLECTIVE GROUP is having problems,struggling so to speak would require a FIX in most peoples eyes. Just because the powers to be have been doing things wrong for a very long time doesn't make it easy or right. In the beginning man tried to roll a SQUARE WHEEL and he did and thought it was good, until someone else figured out that if you chip off the edges and make it ROUND it will roll with very little effort. There is always a faster better easier way to do things, digging ones heels in and saying that's the way we do things ,makes people un happy- This is a tiny microcosm of the automotive world lets hold on to what we have and COLLECTIVLY FIX THINGS THAT APPEAR TO BE WRONG OR BROKEN! I know it takes time money effort but if we don't do it, there will not be long lines of people willing to get in the mix. Look at the people who have NOT returned to this forum after the crash,look at the conventions from the past until today we had hundreds of cars show up in the past now maybe a few dozen :'(. Cmon people all items that will help the group should be considered...

One of the possibilities here is that the "administration" just doesn't care about this. There has been absolutely no input from that end.

The black box was complained about for years and the need for a better server was known almost from the beginning. The only reason that was changed was that the old one was completely crashed and the only solution was to install a new one or just let the entire forum die.

Post by: Rodster-500 on June 10, 2018, 11:36:55 AM
Bottom line is, 'we' the forum participants can do little but point out issues and suggest improvements but the execution has to come from the folks running the club and making decisions.

I'm guessing there is a SAAC board of directors that decide how membership dues are allocated, where help is needed, develop a roadmap for the club going forward, etc etc.  ???

Why no comments or communication from the folks in charge?

Looking back, it seems the forum was not a priority or issues like the dreaded black box would have been resolved and there would have been a real back up in place to preserve the huge wealth of information and knowledge that was growing every day and slowly becoming a crown jewel of the club.   It had to be obvious how important the forum was to the health of the club?

Forum 2.0 is here and no better.

Undoubtedly the crash of Forum 1.0 was a huge loss in both information and enthusiasm from which we will never fully recover. Sad but true.

Conventions will never be like SAAC 8 in Dearborn either.

On the current course, SAAC will be the keeper of the registries, an annual publication and some internet resources to allow folks to communicate.

It's been a great run, and I thank all those in charge and all those who volunteered their time and efforts over the years to promote the cars and hobby.

Times are changing.

Complaining here is a waste of time.

Most everyone's hearts,opinions,actions are all in the right place. The problem is there is no real direction for the club it runs on auto pilot and peoples passion for these cars. It appears to me like the dues are like tithings for your local church it makes us feel good temporarily until we see the preachers-pastors driving new cars,flying around in their new jets etc. Most just want to be with like minded people sharing the same passion they feel with these cars. They want to see things move forward see more harmony,more bonding and less spouting off from the peanut gallery that this guys car had the engine block painted the wrong color,why does it have Lemans stripes on a 67,figure out the complicated picture format etc. etc. I could go on and on,this drives most away from this forum. I personally get a kick out of the nonsense as does a few others but if we collectively put our heads together we can make this a better experience. I feel we are on the edge, if something doesn't get initiated soon this will fade into oblivion.

How do you know when you are dead?

Does everything stop or do we just continue on spirtitually?

I think we are dead. I think we are just the ghosts that haunt this place?

Rather then say, "I give up", I'd rather say I have "suspension of disbelief"? It sounds like there is something deep involved here?  ;)

I'm just going to keep haunting the streets here. Kind of like the "Headless Horseman" in Washington Irving's story. "Long flowing grey hair, turning to white. You can sometimes catch a glimpse of him tearing through the hollow at midnight under a full moon. Gee-ze. I sure wish he would put some new mufflers on that thing. I was just nodding off."

Personally I do not care as how a system works, so long as it does work.  Kind of like how my Shelby runs. It is mean, rough, and problematic; but with the help of volunteers and a lot of free SAAC advice, it will get going and I am more than satisfied with the archaic (to the modern world) ride.   8)

That is a pretty poor attitude/response to have and believe it or not, will only hurt the SAAC. 

Correct me if I'm wrong, I think the SAAC is for anyone willing to pay their dues and wants to help proliferate the message of Shelby ownership and restoration, is that correct?  That being said, all input should be listened to and considered.  As I said in early posts regarding this particular subject, if a change can't be made either due to resources or the architect just doesn't know how, then that is an answer.  But to date I haven't seen the architect say anything.  Have you? 

The problem is then heightened by the fact that the board of directors are also silent.  Could you or I do it better, who knows but I will say, I would at least post a response.

I can see both sides here.  I took the time and learned how to post pictures.  It is more involved than before, but it was important enough for me to struggle through.  On the other hand, the occasional user with a new discovery or some old pictures to post, isn't going to invest the time to learn how, and we will lose out on that information, and probably that user.  IMHO, this forum is a key to increasing or decreasing SAAC membership and in turn interest in the brand, and even the value of the cars to a degree.

Is the SAAC forum supported by membership dues?  If so, maybe when renewal time comes, we should stop renewing and give the lack of forum support as the reason for it.

I did this because I share the enthusiasm of the Shelby's.  I have done this before for others and I would do it again.

Just the same way I answer the questions I feel I can. I do it because that's what this community is about, helping others.  Sometimes I have to get up and go out to the shop to get answers. Sometimes I have pictures saved that I can post immediately.  Other times I have to crack a book and do a bit of research. I don't mind, that's what this community is for.  I don't complain that its too hard or takes up too much time, I just do it.

I have certainly ASKED my fair share of questions and they were graciously answered.  I feel it is my turn to help where I can.

Your either part of the problem, or your part of the solution.

Hi Chris

Just got back from a holiday today, viewed your note to me and currently following the thread that evoked your emotions. Let me address your message to me:

1) Glad to hear you have been married for 27 years. This is truly a relief to us.

2) We are also not worried about you and your family either.

3) Our region is compromised of all different folks from all different ethnicities and diverse backgrounds.

4) Our Club truly does consider ourselves a family.

5) I was not aware you had a club and if you do I am certainly not a member of your club. I have a memberships with SAAC, AACA and other organizations. But certainly do not belong to the Chris Club. OH WAIT, I think you dont even have an established region.

6) If you have anything to say, say it on the forum.

7) As far as , OH WAIT ( you like to use that often EH ! ) that didnt turn out so well for you last time. Really dont know what you mean by that ? EH !

8) Stay in your lane Tony ? What in heavens name do you mean by  that ? OH WAIT, I dont have a lane and I guess neither do you. EH ! 

OH WAIT, I forgot your the owner of one of the best ( i personally also think its the best one in the world EH !) Shelbys in the world. If you dont believe, me just watch his video EH !

Mind you own business and enjoy the ride

If you are an SAAC member you can log into the SAAC Member Lodge (http://saac.memberlodge.com/) and do a member search to see current membership. If you can't log in, you're probably not a member. If you don't see someone's name, they're probably not a member. Of course that all depends on whether someone uses their given name on this forum or they're like me and use an alias to throw off the dogs from Interpol. Oh crap!! Now I've outed myself  :-X

It's a crying shame that you couldn't embed that video in your post, but maybe someday we'll have that kind of technology... for now just be thankful you have 16 emojis to choose from. :-\

If you are an SAAC member you can log into the SAAC Member Lodge (http://saac.memberlodge.com/) and do a member search to see current membership. If you can't log in, you're probably not a member. If you don't see someone's name, they're probably not a member. Of course that all depends on whether someone uses their given name on this forum or they're like me and use an alias to throw off the dogs from Interpol. Oh crap!! Now I've outed myself  :-X


FWIW I am a dues paying SAAC member - I just don't have a stinking badge! But I did get an ID card (That I've shown no one. Ever).

 A wealth of information is available if you are a dues ( like me ) paying member once you log in and check people's names or handles.

Seems we have a few non paying members of SAAC.

 Just freeloading forum members who do not support the upkeep or maintenance of this forum by paying their SAAC dues.

Maybe if those folks would contribute we could easily upload the pictures....

Bring on those member badges !

That is correct , but someone has to pay for the infrastructure. I have always fully supported our SAAC organization and by what better way than paying yearly dues.

I see the forum as the sweetener to get peoples attention and spur their desire to learn more and hopefully want to be a paying dues member.  That is why I feel so strongly that the picture portion of this forum needs to be extremely intuitive as most people are very visual and that is what grabs them.  Lets face it, WE are visual because that is why we felll in love with the Shelbys in the first place.  Beauty, power and rarity.

The picture posting is perhaps the most important feature in many discussions. The way it is now, I just can't respond the way I want to in a discussion by posting a picture to show what I am referring to.

Why it is not corrected can only be answered by one person who has chosen not to respond and participate in this discussion. Actually, I consider that as a response, i.e., "it's not going to happen".

It seems clear to me. What we have, is the way it is and the way it will stay. I've accepted that but it's just an unfortunate scenario created by the powers that be.

We're all being treated like ungrateful children.

I'd have to agree with you on this one. Hopefully and with patience Ron Richards will be at SAAC 43 (aka computerworks). I or someone will need to confront him there in a tactful way (maybe at the hotel in the evening) and not piss him off as he will be busy with the convention and bring it up in conversation.

NorCal SAAC is assisting SAAC with the convention planning. Feedback from Michael M. has mentioned at our BoD meetings that it too has been challenging communicating with both Ron and Curt. So we need to tread lightly when bringing up this topic of the forum pic posting. Hopefully this issue can be addressed.

I too post multiple images (i.e. CSX2196 the Flip Top Cobra as an example...24 on that topic). I too have refrained from posting. My hopes are to get the current forum V2.0 back to the point of posting as it was and or at least a reason why we can't.

Oh, by the way. I DO have images of girls bent over the hoods.

Cheers,

Boss 302 Exchange runs on Simple Machines SMF 2.0.11
This site runs on Simple Machines SMF 2.0.15 (likely a newer version)

No, you and I subliminally butt heads on various topics such as Webers, Suspensions and a few others. But, that's okay. I find it quite entertaining, especially your tangents and references. You're expertise is well founded. Your opinion is just that, an opinion,  as is mine.

I'm not looking to book a model... but it would have to be female...I'm just checking on my sons.

They could have taken the cars and pretended they were celebrities and offered women who wanted to be in show business an opportunity?

For those of you who want to know the most likely reason why the photo attachment feature no longer works, and you understand a little bit of tech-speak gibberish: https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=540668.0 (https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=540668.0)


This can only be accomplished by an administrator or someone with administrative privileges.

You are reminding me of something with that post, wasn't there previous discussion that "uploads" were limited to each poster?

That thread that discusses setting "a reasonable amount of uploads with a reasonable file size", seems to ring a bell?
Title: Re: Photo Posting Poll
Post by: kjspeed on June 15, 2018, 05:34:38 PM
Doug, I don't think the issue is specific to each user because new users aren't able to post attach photos. It's most likely either a setting in the Simple Machines Forum (SMF) administration panel or, like the poster in the example, a limit set by the hosting company. I'm not familiar with SMF software but it sounds like there is "a" folder where every photo attachment is stored and that folder is full. The solution would be to increase the size limit of that folder which probably needs to be done by the admin or the hosting company.

Kind of like having a 2 gallon gas tank on a Shelby. It'll work, but not for long.
