    5. Questons

      Have you got a burning question about art, photography - or anything else on your mind? If so, you can start a topic here. This forum works slightly differently to the others, in that when a member replies, it is in the form of an "answer". Other members can then vote the answers up or down to get the best answer. Or something like that... Just try it!!

    • Guest Oh... the value must be...
      This site is BORING.
    • If you don't want to hear your neighbours above, below, left, right, behind or opposite you - then don't have neighbours above, below, left, right, behind or opposite you! That's easy!! ๐Ÿ˜ So go and live on top of a mountain - or on a desert island or something? ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm not kidding... Last night - (or in the early hours of this morning, to be fair...)ย  Sitting on my balcony, still jetlagged at around 01:30 Hrs. Lights on, of course! Quietly minding my own business and studying one of my books... I dared to cough?!! (Well, it wasn't really anything more than just clearing my throat. To the best of my knowledge, I don't have TB?) Oh, and I am not sure but it is not entirely impossible, by the way, that I might have committed the ultimate crime of the century, by accidentally dragging my chair? Just a tiny little bit? If I did - Sorry! It wasn't intentional. I am usually pretty quiet at that time of night. And I wasn't drunk. I didn't even have a single beer in the fridge. And if I did, in fact, scrape the chair around at all, I wasn't even aware that I had done so. OK? No. I'm pretty sure it was clearing my throat that was the final straw for my poor old long-suffering neighbours; a full 20, maybe 30 metres away from my balcony. Oh, you should have seen the commotion! On came their lights. The occupants - or at least, some of them - stood at their window gabbling away in Thai. Had they realised that I can get by quite nicely in the local lingo, they could have easily cursed me in their own language! But they didn't. (I wonder what would have happened if I had been a local? Probably, nothing at all...) Anyway; so instead of saying anything to me directly, they just closed their curtains again. Then, out of sight, all I could hear was a very loud: "Hoy!! ๐Ÿ˜•Well, sorry that I breathed then! ...I just finished the passage that I was working on, in my book; quietly went inside, and put the balcony light out... Now, I can understand one of my other neighbours not liking the smell of my cigars - so I don't smoke them on my own balcony anymore. (It helps that I can't afford the damn things at the moment, anyway...) But now, I am not even allowed to sit outside and get some fresh air after dark?ย  Thailand - the "Land of Smiles!" ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€
    • Well... That was back in 2005, when I started this topic!!! ...And how things have moved on now!! In 2018, search engines actually work - and now we just take them for granted!!
    • Still testing out the site after a recent software update. ย  'Any issues, just drop me an email or a pm...

      Hi! Long time, no see! I didn't realize, you were still in the New Members group... Anyway, welcome to the Full Members group now. You should find that any posting restrictions that you may have experienced as a New Member have now been removed.
      If you can edit your uploaded images to give them titles/descriptions and maybe a few key words, that will make your images searchable - both within the site and, of course, via external search engines.

      It turns out the problems I was having with uploading images were related to the Internet Service Provider that I was using at the time - not the site. Anyway, I managed to improve a few things along the way, so you should find that your images upload a lot quicker now - ISP notwithstanding!!
