  • Where is the ALBUMS forum?

    Strange thing, a member posted a short stop motion video in an area called "ALBUMS", under the category SPECIAL, I only got there because it is still in the new threads column on the main page, and now I see others have posted things in this forum called ALBUMS in the past, this was the first time I had ever been to that section, and have no idea how you access it from the main page, where is it, am I looking in the wrong spots? Did I somehow get to an area that I shouldn't have been able to?

    Interesting. I can't find it either.

      It's weird, I was thinking maybe it is just a section where members who posted photos and videos in other places are kept, but it strange that it would show up in Latest Topics then.

        Early on when I was setting this place up I played around with some other features, I thought I had blocked the Albums section, mainly because it was more bother than it was worth. Not sure how folks are getting in.
        The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

        Thank you for your understanding.

          Never even heard of it.
          Due to the recent budget cuts,
          the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
          current state of the economy, the light at the end
          of the tunnel has been turned off.

            What was the stop motion video? Do you have a link to the thread it is in? Or is it even in a thread? [EDIT] Found it.


            We had another incident with the Albums section a few months back and discussed it a bit in the Admin arena, but I don't think we ever came to any conclusions as to how people wound up posting there.

                  Thanks for clearing that up guys, guess it only shows up on the latest topics section when someone accidentally posts in the Media section on their profile page, well not necessarily by accident, maybe they thought it saved their post on their profile page for them.

                    I wonder if that's where I left my Allman Brothers album....have not seen it in years.
