Any chance on a forum for computing tips and help? Open Discussion gets so flooded that it may help the community to have a special little place for some of the eplayans to ask for help, discuss technical stuff etc. Incidentally this could also be a place to discuss mods for the board and try to raise the awareness of open source options and freeware to users. I know for one I prefer openoffice to Microcrap Office and I saved a ton of money to boot. OpenOffice=FREE Microcrap=HUNDREDS!!. Only reason I am asking is cuz I have seen a few folks have problems in one or another thread about problems relating to computers. With a seperate forun maybe the needs of our community could be addressed in a more timely fashion.

I was all about O.O. until I went back to microsoft. It just runs faster. If I had to pay for it, then I'd probably use O.O. since it's not real vital to things I do. I'd use wordperfect except I've had some conversion trouble with them. Though I love open source it's currently just too inconvenient for me currently. Maybe if I get a new comp it'll run better but I'm still on a 2.6ghz running win98.

I like the idea about a technical forum. If one went up I'd post some ad-hock schematics of how to do some things. Domes, firesigns, firecannons, carports, etc. Right now I could do it in share resources I guess since things take a while to get bumped from there.

This Board needs to be updated to have a couple new tags.

The embed YouTube video tag or [youtube][/youtube]

and

a spoiler tag (just because I like that one)

I'll look into the youtube thing - it seems doable. I'm not sure how a spoiler tag would apply here.

Any chance we could get the avatar size bumped up to 100x100?

Also.. any chance on getting the avatar size bumped up a bit?

I'll donate the harddrive if its a disk space issue.

Youtube link is in. I'll post a seperate message about it.

The avatar size is based more on page layout and potential annoyance from huge animated gifs than it is on bandwidth or storage space. Can you provide an example of a 100 pixel avatar that simply doesn't work at 80 pixels?

I'd like the avatar size bumped a little too. 80x80 is fine with me and bigger than most I've used (but I use old boards). I made one that is 94k, I think, and couldn't use it.

Adding a picture of camp to center camp info process.

Postby playaGirl » Wed Sep 10, 2008 11:51 am

One thing that kept happing was i couldn't locate some of my friends at BM when i went to look them up at the info center.

It think what would be cool is if people could upload one picture of there camp site as a reference or landmark so when people are looking they can see it as well.

Not sure if this can be done but it would of been so helpful to have an image of what their camp looked like when trying to find peeps out there.

My 2 cents!

:D

Most people never register at playa info.
It did seem like a lot more were using it though in 2007.

I would like to see access to the playa info database online.

What you see now is what you get. I'm not aware of anyone planning on putting the old stuff back online and I wouldn't even know where the data is, if it still even exists.

You'll have to talk to someone with authority on the tech team about that. I don't think they hang out here to see suggestions.

Speaking of huge annoyances--what about people that post those large graphics in their signatures!? Talk about page view interruption.

Use a smaller monitor or run your web browser in windowed mode. Pictures should look alot smaller that way.

If a mere picture annoys you that much just wait till you get to the playa and the noise doesn't stop for a week. :)

It wouldn't be annoying if you only saw the picture once. The one in your signature is definately worth viewing--one time, but the problem is that you see it over and over and over again.

Oh well, it is nothing that I can't live with, just another wish on my long list. :D

That signature picture problem is a pain in the rear...it interrupts the flow of the messages and makes wading through them a general hassle...if there was a way to restrict them just a little bit...I'd love to see it happen.

And I can handle noise....6 years on the playa....and 2 two year olds in the house means I can handle most things. It takes a lot to make me speak up anymore.

I implemented a max image size mod a while back (which got rid of most of the horizontal scrolling problems) but it doesn't descriminate between images in the body and ones in a signature. I'll take a look and see if it's feasible to do something like that. It kind of annoys me as well.
