Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK i have 11 posts, have resized my photo to a jpg less than 97K and smaller than 800x600 and still can not get the photo to upload - keep getting an upload fail message.

Unless anyone can tell me what i am doing wrong i will have to duck out.

Well you should have shouldn't you ?

Alternatively you could, depending on your attitudes find a thread and hurl some insults at either Jones or Brenda, use the word Liberal in a disparaging fashion or even , and I do urge caution if you take this rather radical path .... go and discuss something sailing related.

Anywho ... lack of post count is a rather minor speed bump .

What people do here is to upload the picture in some public sharing interface (panoramio, pinterest, photobucket, imageshack, yo name it) and then link it to the post.

What I've learned for sailnetters is to upload my pictures to my website and then link it to the post using "insert image" button.

Good luck!!!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

my complaint would be that from the first picture there is no defineing detail and in the pacific northwest there are many places that resemble that image. I request that from now on all contest pix must have a defineing characteristic that will distinguish without a doubt the location.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Neilsty ... where did the pic come from ? Your computer or on the net ?

If on the net you need to right click and 'view image' . this should leave you with an URL that ends in .jpg. Next selct and copy the URL then paste it into the box that opens when you click on that postcard looking symbol 'insert image'.

If on your computer the best way to handle it (cos lets face it the Sailnet image thing is rubbish) would be to get yourself a PhotoBucket, Flickr or similar account and post from there.

PM me if you need more help. Once you get it sorted it is relatively easy from there on in. Trust me, if I can do it, anyone can.

I know that some of the pics have been pretty vague but in every instance someone has eventually worked it out, so the system (if you can call it that) seems to function tolerably well.

Play along for awhile, you might well find that you do get the hang of it.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I understand, but my point is what proof is there that the answer is in fact the correct answer that identifies the location of were the pix was shot but not of the posting entities interpertation of were the pix was taken. I have often looked at old pix that I have taken and been mistaken as to the location until my error is pointed out to me. Don't you think that the contest pix need an anchor point that cannot be misinterpreted even by accident?
