Those of you who use the current Crappie.com Brag Board at:
http://www.crappie.com/ads/cgi/clad.cgi

know about all the issues we've had with that over the years. Messages disapearing, crossed up pointers.....

Anyway, here's a new one I just got done customizing. Please try it out and see if it works better. If so, I'll change the links on the Crappie.com pages, and add a link here on the message board.

Okay, I gave it a try, not exactly braggin material, but the program seemed to work easy enough for me, and I'm computer illiterate! One question that maybe someone could help me out with. I'm using Kodak Easyshare software, can I reduce the pixtel, or whatever you call them, so they load faster and don't take up as much room? I live back in the sticks, and only have a dial up 28.8 kps internet service available and it takes forever uploading or downloading pictures. Thanks!

I also have Kodak easy share. Depending on which camera you have,mine is a DX3500,you can reduce the number of pixels from your camera menu. Mine only has 2 settings, good(600 x 900) or best(1200 x 1800). The more expensive camers have settings down to thumbnail size. You don't need a high pixel count to post pictures on the board. Hope this helps.

Shellback......I can't speak to your upload problems, but if your camera doesn't have a pixel count feature, your only option is to reduce them within your Easyshare program. In case you haven't already discovered how to do this, here is a quick overview. Select the pic you want to reduce (click it once), Go to task panel and click on "view", rest your cursor on "thumbnail" and choose large or small. You will see your photo reduced immediately to a smaller size which will email and load much faster, and will not use as much memory to store. When emailed, they will be sized to a medium photo in the received format. I store all my pics in the thumbnail "large" size, and it works quite well. I hope this helps. Good luck!

Thanks for the replies, I'll give them a try now. This thread has gotten a little salty, heh?

Hey Ed,

I like it! It took me 2 tries to get the photo, but now I know how.

Shellback: Looks like a swabbie reunion to me!

Hey Ed .... checked out the Brag Board - Looks Nice !! I only find one small problem with the format .... there's no ID spot on there, so unless the person posting the pic puts their name (or board name) on the pic or in the comments section ... you don't know who's posting the pic. Case in point - Don G posted a pic of his new boat, but I didn't know who's boat it was until I read his "comments" at the bottom of that page.

Can we have a line or section added to identify the person posting the pic ? ..... thanks for all your hard work in getting the "Brag Board" back !!

.............cp :cool:

Not having any problems here accessing the site. :) The idea of the persons identity, is a good idea though. Keith

Yep, I know exactly what you mean. I will work on it.

Sorry, but I think I'm talking about something else. This Crappie.com Message board right here is fine. The old Brag Board sucked. The brag board is where we posted pics of our "catch".

I like this new brag board. In fact I am really enjoying the entire new forums these days. I love the fact that I can now scan things into my computer and post pictures on the forums a lot easier than before. You know the old saying
"A picture is worth a thousand words"

i have no trouble acessing the web page but the photos takes forever to load. Im on a dialup connection so that may be the problem, but nothing else i try to open takes this long. is there anyway each individual photo can be opened, maybe that will help. So far, all ive been able to see is the tops of several heads before i give up and move on.

I've got the same problem as Rango, I'm on a dial up, at only 28.8kpbs, that's the best I can get. Sure would be nice to see the pics.

Very strange, the pics are only thumbnails and should load very quickly. I'm wondering if you were trying to access the page during a time period where my server had a slowdown. I've had two slowdowns and I have not been able to determine why they occured, but they occured in the last week. Maybe try it again and let me know if it's better now.

It's loading ok now. We must remember that pictures take a lot of memory and take longer to download vs text messages. I have cable so it's not taking too long.

Must have been a server overload last week.

Cool Moose. Thanks for the feedback. Here's another link to the Brag Board just to make it easier to find. I still need to make more links across the site to it.
