Re: Experimenting with Hot Glue..

Any time!

It's good to see life here again. And I think that's a noble effort on your part for the greater masses.

Have a great weekend!

Re: Experimenting with Hot Glue..

Good to see you've gotten the hang of it. Though I would caution you against using Wikimedia as an image hosting site without creating an article to go with the images. They may see that as misuse and rescind your membership and wipe your photos from the site. That is why I was suggesting a dedicate...

Re: Message Board update

I think it was Sean. That's what I gathered from one of the other threads. That or we have a ghost admin.

Re: Message Board update

They need to update their team list. Vern's not one, but Sean is? I wonder if Larry Lemieux ever reads anything here. One would think that since these publications are his, he'd take at least a passing interest in this forum.

Re: Experimenting with Hot Glue..

PS
Oh Vern sent a PM and says he's not with this company anymore. That's a shame.
Sure is. At least he's still a member of the message board.

Ok, I looked on a computer and it's still there. I just can't see it on mobile.

Re: Experimenting with Hot Glue..

Hey MrAl, long time no see!

I think you've hit the nail on the head with that last phrase. Just a comment on one of the threads to say, "Hey, we're working on it." would go a long way to ease the member's minds.

Re: Experimenting with Hot Glue..

I just used Wikimedia as an example of what the board requires for the image tag, ie an address to the image that ends in a standard image extension such as .jpg, .gif, .bmp, .png as these are the ones browsers can render. It doesn't matter where it is hosted, as long as when you view the image by i...

Re: Experimenting with Hot Glue..

Click the link and it's there. Now if you want it to show in the post, use the bbs code at the top of the editor - click the icon with a picture in it. This will bring up the image tag. Place your image url between and you should be good to go. Of course, some work better than others. Let me give it...

Re: Message Board update

Well, going on 3-1/2 days for a call to Admin, Mods, even IT, and not a peep. Are any of them out there?

Re: Message Board update

One thing I missed immediately was the ability to see member rankings via postings. The infamous Chris Smith's record for posts should be surpassed sometime this year, only like 8-10 years after he left the board. Can't figure out how to reorder the members by posts on my phone. Haven't even tried o...

Re: A Simple but Accurate Constant Current Source

I agree with that assessment. Ease of use and what is considered standard practices trumps any old concerns that may have been precedent over 10 years ago. In order to make this board attractive to the newer generation, image and file hosting is just a basic requirement.

Re: A Simple but Accurate Constant Current Source

Under the FAQ. http://forum.nutsvolts.com/app.php/help/faq#f3r3 This goes for any attachment, which you can see further up the FAQ. IIRC, the reason this was never allowed was due to fear of losing space / space constraints for the Board. In this day and age, this shouldn't even be a consideration. ...

What this Message Board needs is an "Art Gallery" that the members can upload Pictures, Diagrams, and Images too.
That way it makes it a lot easier to put images into postings.

Message Board update

I see that the Message Board / Forum has been updated. Has any new functionality been added or improvements been made, or is this just cosmetic? A rundown would be nice. Admins? Mods? IT?
