Thanks Scuba-Delicious
I know where your going with this, your going to start calling me Mr T…hey I was born at night but not last night :cheerleader:

I guess it time to get back on topic…

I like the new features but I’m glad it has the same look and feel as before ...TY
The comment box is a great new feature and it gets SD up to speed with myspace (which is probably why they became so popular so fast) you can post ads for upcoming SD trips in it plus just say hi ya or thanks for being a positive member. The possibilities are endless.

The who viewed you last is kinda creepy tho..I viewed latitude adjustment and then he sent me a wink then I winked him back now we are so creep-out that we will probably never view each other again.

Buttons and Buttons
There are so many new buttons in my control panel and messaging area that I am like a kid in a candy store..BTW ask WW I love to push buttons. I cant wait to try the acronym button in my reply to post area.

I cant report any malfunctions with the browser, I am on dial-up using IE 7

Barf...

I noted that profile pics seemed to have a problem and I think it was stated that they need to be 150x150 max in PNG or some other formats, but not JPEG...?

I just tried to load my 150x150 in PNG, and it seems to still not be working...??

Yeah I know: I've been branded a non-group person - doesn't play well with others. I am so upset. Posted Image Let me know if you want to have some fun, without the drama - I'm good for that.

Like DandyDon, I'm still unable to upload a personal photo. File is .jpg, <100 kb, <150x150 pixels. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Tanks! :unsure:

I think my upload issues to Singledivers.com are always related to my connection to my ISP. When I have a slow or "noisy" link, the upload just hangs. When I get to a good connection and service, no problem...

Don't know how this info helps, but I just mention it in case some one else is trying to upload from a pokey connection too... :unsure:

OK, just looked into the pics issue with a test account. I believe that your personal images are uploading (you aren't getting an error message, correct?), just that as a side effect of the "Members" group not being allowed to see profiles, it doesn't show it to you, even on your own personal image upload page. I can see both CvilleBill's and DandyDon's personal images (headshot for Bill, milk carton with face for Don). I'm assuming others with permission to view profiles (Premier and similar) can see the images as well.

Seems like a minor bug in the forum software; I'll see if there's a way to forward it on to the developers. Sorry for any confusion this causes...

Okay, thanks. I'd suggest changing that, and I guess they'll get to it after dealing with more important matters. Appreciate you letting me know; I'll hush now. :unsure:

Fordan, thanks for looking into the pic upload issue & responding. You are correct--I didn't receive any error message. Obviously I don't need to see the pic, but knowing that it uploaded correctly is helpful. Figured having the gnarly visage posted might be useful when meeting up w/other SD folks. Thanks again!
