Bonsai in Switzerland

Post  john pitt on Sun Oct 11, 2009 7:23 am

Some very nice bonsai on Display,
including this dosplay from Puis Notter collection.


and my shop, lighting was superb.


and I was surprised to see this English elm, a Colin Lewis creation,
originally, now residing in Italy.

Hi Kev,
It's been amazing upto now,
all as I'd hoped for, met some wondeful people,
seen some fantastic trees, the demos were just fantastic,
I hope someone who had the time to take pictures will post them,

I travel to see Walter Pall Tuesday, and then...
I have a few days to kill this week
if anyone between Munich and Brussels has any ideas? Wink

Yes, I'm looking forward to Burrs Kev, always a great atmospere,
See you there.

Sure it does. See: http://ibonsaiclub.forumotion.com/testing-posting-images-tutorials-f4/tutorial-on-posting-pics-t243.htm

"properly" just means "differently." Surely if we can do it, you can.

Come on Jim, you know that I have successfully shown a few dozen images her already. Don't state it as if I were dumb. I have more experience posting images on forums than the overwhelming majority of folks here together. If I say it does not work then it does not work. Maybe just for a time period, but still not encouraging to come back. Maybe it is my browser. But fact is that this does NOT happen on other forums where it a lot easier and straightforward to post images anyway.
Ever wonder why this site is not at all what it used to be?

What is happening when you try to post an image Walter?

If anyone else is having difficulty posting images, please contact me and I'll do my best to sort it out. I thought that we were over the teething problems. We now have more than 1500 members and only two have had an issue with posting images in the past few weeks, as far as I am aware.

Kevin,

when I want to post an image I first find the right one in my files. Then I go to this icon above which says 'host and image'. I click onto it and normally this window appears which says 'upload an image' And so on. I know perfectly what to do.
Yesterday this window did NOT come up even after more than a dozen tries. What came up was this funny greeting card thing which would not let me post any image and does not go away whatever you do. This greeting card comes up anyway most of the time (but not always) after I have posted an image and it is quite annoying. I learned that you have to click onto review then and then you can post the second image in one message. Sometimes this does not work either. Then I learned that you post the go...mned message and then go to 'edit' and post the second image. And so on.
I have seen about 30 different versions on forums of how to post images. This is by far the most clumsy one. But it works. Normally. Yesterday it did NOT.
Today it does. It does fool you insofar as after the image is hosted, copied from there and included in my message it shows the WRONG file number so that I think it is a mistake. It shows the number of an image that I did NOT want to load. Well, with all my experience loading more than 30,000 (thirty thousand) images on all sorts of forums around the world I check what it really does. It does load the correct image, but show the wrong number. Well, I can live with this. But I can see that a person with less experience and who is less DETERMINED to post here would have given up long before that.

Post  Gæst on Tue Oct 13, 2009 6:16 am

I have to agree with Walter that is too troublesome to put up pictures, so i too hesitates a bit posting because of that. It has to be very easy and fast. Other forums, and the former forum system here I believe, handled the pictures easier I think. Maybe its just me and Walter who are grumpy old men Wink Embarassed
Isn’t there a smarter way?

But good show in Switzerlands it seems. Sorry to get of the topic direction guys.

Walter, thank you for the details and for your persistence in getting the photo's posted. It really does help me to understand. This is something that I have never seen, and it has not been reported before. We have had problems with the host being unavailable a couple of times, but this case sounds more like a hack, virus, malware of adware.

Regarding the image numbering, it is a function of the way that the image hosting service stores everyones images on a database. If it allowed the standard camera numbering tags, there would inevitably be duplicates. It has to renumber them to make them unique.

We are taking any criticisms on board and they will be considered, once we are in a secure enough financial position to pay for hosting and a possible new iteration of the IBC.

I find the posting of picture very cumbersome and have been trying
to test post some pictures according to the guidelines but failed again and
again. Will try tomorrow.
