I can't - have asked if that's possible but I suspect the system isn't that refined.
Not me! sorry!
nice distinct Ozzie yellow, that's 3 of us I'm aware of!
Why don't you get a generic email inbox set up then people can email a name and a picture then you can create a locked thread for viewing and collate them in order. The existing ones can be cut and pasted into the new thread.
That would be tidier certainly.
I seem to recall there being a 10 pic per post limit ....we'll look into how Birdy did it and come up with a way forward one way or another
don't expect it to happen over night
I'll have a scan through now and delete all the posts with no pics for starters to make it a bit more manageable
that's some tidying done, and at least reduced it by 2 pages
If we cant get round the 10 pic rule we're open to suggestions (sensible ones!)
He didn't! Maybe you're finding out why.
Maybe it was done on the old server ?
I think your right ^^^ the forum was moved to a new server (not after a crash) ...think it went off line for a few days for the change, and the picture limit was set at 10 pics per post.
I've had a go at editing the first post just to remove the posts with no pics and it wont allow me as there are more than 10 pics
how do you mean he didnt? was it someone else?
Our 75 Bay : Spencer
I meant it never got off the ground.
got you, dead before it started then
It looked that way to me, I PM'd Birdy a few times when he was a mod, but he ignored me. lol
Just had a quick count up and there are about 83 vans waiting to be added. There are 85 or so in the first post that are in alphabetical order, but we can't add to that. I'm a bit stumped unless we can find some other way to display them.
I would imagine it's technically possible for the organising MOD to post one pic per post with the thread locked to the rest of us till he/she's finished and then open it for pictures from us.
I don't know though if it's possible for a MOD to insert a later post in between existing posts but if it was they could lock the thread once a year of so and slip in the new pictures where they belong alphabetically, delete all the extra posts and open it up for us again.
We can't put a post between others. We can delete and edit. The main problem we have is the 10 pictures per post because it's going to end up with a lot of posts - assuming we want to order the pictures alphabetically.
Why does it have to be a thread? can't it be a gallery. People submit pictures and a name to an email drop and then the chosen MOD adds it to the gallery, folders for A,B,C easy to admin then too.
It's a bit of a compromise but maybe several seperatel threads arranged along the lines of encyclopaedias i.e. A-D, E-H, I - L, etc.
Separate names with a comma.
