  1. now that photos are retrievable, can you find the bead tree solution posted some time ago by Pugaboo. she made something that might work and was fairly simple. a computer geek-y photo seeker might locate it. i was able to find a link to the original bead tree from which pugaboo adapted hers. i searched for "bead tree" and Pugaboo and MAGIC! IT CAME UP!
  2. trying new photo system. not the one i wanted, this is harlequin, my cat. or am i owned by her? green glaze, repaired thanks to min and mea. the m&m's of the forum and just as sweet.
  3. benzine and anyone else interested in this device. i have one that a carpenter made for me when i showed him the ad in a ceramics monthly issue. if you would like a close-up of the details of it, let me know and i will send you a photo or six.
  4. if anyone wants to contact pugaboo or make a contribution, pm me.  oldlady

  5. new forum, what i dislike

    it is now some days into this new stuff. it seems to be totally driven by person who posted instead of what is being discussed. i give up. bye, all, it has been fun.
  6. Very elementary

    jaay, if you use paint to reduce the size of your photo, it is easy. at least easy enough for my ancient brain to process. right click the mouse, open with, choose paint, go to home, then resize and choose pixels. if you enter 600 for the horizontal, it will automatically make the whole picture the right size, hit save and then it will work for email or to post here. i think i put this in the correct order. edited because i messed up the sequence.
  7. new forum, what i dislike

    found something else. in my gallery, the photos seem to have something saying that nobody else can see them. i am told to "map" something to allow photos to be seen. cannot find the exact wording since i am now on a different page and cannot go back and forth.
  8. new forum, what i dislike

    thank you judith. i tried activity and you are right, it does look a lot like the old pattern but it is not exactly. you have to tell it you want to see everything since the topic started. how does it let you read the continuation after the . . . whatever follows is hidden and i can't find it.
  9. new forum, what i dislike

    ron, i accidentally found the way to post that photo. there is a "choose files" in the bottom left corner and when you click it you are shown how to post a photo. then there is a little plus sign and it makes it stick. i don't know how to drag things.
  10. new forum, what i dislike

    thanks, ron, i am more concerned about the label "friday". will it ever say which friday once more than one has gone by? i tried a picture, does it work.
  11. now that things have settled down a bit from the shock of the boulder thrown into our comfortable little pond and the ripples are starting to reach the shore, i noticed some specific things that are different and that i do not like. if anyone in charge is reading this, please note that i am thankful for the whole thing, the ability to freely exchange ideas with other potters, no matter where they are. it is a sort of refuge from having to talk to people who do not understand the language and the feeling of community with others who are also addicts. i think that the silly scoring idea has been scrapped. thank you for whoever did that. i can see that the way the information is presented resembles the old format in shape. the problem i have is that there is no apparent listing of the info in a readable way. there used to be a few headings we could ignore to get to the new content. now these very old things are listed among the new willy-nilly. (You youngsters would say "random".) i cannot believe that there have only been a few posts since the start but it appears so, maybe it is the holiday weekend. what happened to the date and time of the post? how is the day of the week helpful? and what happened to the list of things being said in order of date and time, not by the person who listed something? how can i read the first post and follow everything said since then by whomever? chronologically was so sensible, this new system seems to be personality directed, who say something is more important than keeping the replies in order as they happen. it is the CONTENT that matters to me, not the person's name. the headings seem to matter much more now, it used to be that if the subject seemed appropriate to the original poster, it was OK unless the staff member thought it would be better somewhere else. are we to be punished somehow if we post something in the wrong place? maybe have some "POINTS" removed? or maybe i just cannot figure it all out. there are no clues for me to follow.

  14. give us a close-up, mea, please. it does not look like you Koi pattern from this far out.
  15. New Forum
