    Thank You Jim , we are looking forward to making this a nice place to hang out. You can post images ANYWHERE you want in any thread and will have a gallery also. It's a photo forum right. LOL

    Private forum

    Guy,

    Not that there is any hurry, but Ben and I have been unable to get into the private site. Perhaps Jack has to give us the okeedokee first? We'll be lurking !! And check after we go to dinner!!

    You guys already have the okiedoeky to go in that forum --- try it now and see if you can access it. Chris got right in and I set all of you up the same way.

    Hey Guys

    good to be on a real thread. I will be posting some workshop images real soon. I need to reprocess those you have already seen because in the process of trying to upgrade to Leopard I lost my machine! GRRRRRR

    I tried to get into the workshop participant section but it says I am using the wrong password. I used the password with which I registered (and which worked to allow me to log in to this thread) but it did not work for the participant section. Jack, please let me know what I doing wrong

    Hello to all the workshop participants from the Wood MAN

    Thanks for the email and heads up. I have now added this to my tool bar. I look forward to taking a workshop sometime soon. I'm sure I will have some questions soon as I contemplate one last lens (for now - LOL).

    Good luck!

    Hi Guy
    No problem, I can do the cat shot - and solve the chicken problem at the same time:





    Not with a Leica this time I'm afraid, but maybe I'll be forgiven?

    Great to see much of the old gang here. All that much poorer for our obsession with Leica glass and all that much richer for all of the friendships we've made along the way.

    Cheers.

    Glad to have you here Cindy and yes we would love to have more women join up . Also love to have you on a workshop as well but that is only part of the forum . We need a home for the workshop site to reside and having the public part is for everyone to come in learn and share with everyone else. Jack and i look at this as another place for others to come hang out and no pressure to join a workshop. That will just take care of itself.

    Best words today and agree 100 percent. It is about the friendships we have built and hopefully others will come and be part of the family. Bottom Line Kurt and well said

    Quick question: can the colour scheme be configured? I prefer something lower key personally.

    Re: Welcome to the M8 world.

    Yea how much money do you have. LOL Just kidding


    We would have to create another style and make it optional. It takes some time to do that and honestly give us a week. Jack and I are so burned out on designing this at the moment. We put a massive amount of time in over a 5 day period. We need to fix a few buttons also. I should also mention since this came up that we plan Links to our favorite places and banners. Not being true graphic designers we are fiddling around trying to figure that stuff out also. Were not really done yet.

    Thanks Carsten for bring it up

    Good Evening Guy,
    May I say well done, and I rather like the color scheme...
    Bold and shows off the images better using the Grey & Burgundy...
    I know the work it takes and you have evolved quickly... Thanks
    Just returned from three weeks out, arrived around at 8:30pm...

    Thanks Jim glad you guys made it home okay. Love to see some images from you and Linda on your trip. Loved having you guys in Yosemite and pencil in Moab.

    I do love the colors here actually. I signed up on the Vbulletin website that makes this software and showed them our website and every comment was how nice our forum looked with images. Nice to hear from the designers that actually know what there doing. LOL

    Re: Welcome to the M8 world.

    I have a minor question with regards to the look of the site (my usual quest for simplicity )

    For each post, the box has, starting at the top and going down: a dark red line, a thin grey line, a fat red date bar, a thin grey line, a title on dark grey, a thin grey line, and then the text and so on. Is it possible to make the first thin grey line dark red, to simplify the look a little? I find that although the colour scheme is gorgeous, there is a lot of stuff for the eye to catch on, and a tiny bit simpler would help a lot. Sorry for harping on about this, it is not serious, just something I notice.

    (I just played around a bit, and what I mean is if you change background from "#999999" to something like "#454545" in the .tborder section. The total amount of visual clutter drops dramatically, while leaving the lines in place. By the way, if you change "background" from "#5c7099" to "#4b1108" in .tcat and .thead, then the funny temporary blue colour goes away completely.)

    Re: Welcome to the M8 world.

    Just wanted to say hello to everyone. I've been kind of busy since signing up here but will get more involved at some point in the very near future.

    Now, off to the shower, then the big game (Michigan at Wisconsin)!

    Re: Welcome to the M8 world.

    Carsten sounds like you played with this software before. I will give it a try when Jack and Andy get back in town. Want to make sure I have my backup person to reload if i get in trouble. BTW do you know how to do banners , google adsense and links on the big outside border. I want to give links to each store and OEM and people like reidreviews some. We still are building it and jack and I are waiting until I finish this book to work on it more. i will be done next week but this sucks about 15 hours a day out of me. I am working on a program book for a Model and talent convention that my wife runs. I do this twice a year act as Designer but there are 1800 images that i correct and size and all that stuff, nightmare project but pays the bills. LOL

    I tried the first one Carsten and it did help but I did not like it ( thread section looked bad) so I made it darker some and I think it is not as glaring. The second one I can't do because it takes away the burgandy gradient and I don't want to do that one . Jack made that and not sure how to get that one back. I think Andy has to do something on his end in reloading us without the first default behind it. i have to get onto to VBulletin and get advice on that one. But we have noticed it and it is annoying at times and we will fix that one. We will fix that one this week sometime


    Thanks Guy

    fotografr,

    At the risk of starting an insane excursion into sports, here :"The Big Game" is Cal/Stanford. (I root for neither.)

    Steve via your PM . Look you can see where I am from. It is in the Control Panel for each user under profile to put location. Check yours for me . Trying to find that control on the admin side but it maybe the users choice
