ANSWERS TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I receive error message when trying to upload a picture to the gallery.
Make sure that your picture is no more than 3.2 MegaPixels in resolution. You can look in the file property of the picture (right click on it, choose properties, advanced). If e.g. 2400x1800 the resolution is too high (4.3 MegaPixels). You can change the resolution quite easily using this utility: http://bluefive.pair.com/pixresizer.htm
I cannot open a certain video clip.
You probably do not have the proper codec for the video file installed. You can find codecs packs such as this one: http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Codec_Pack_All_in_1.htm
You can also install VLC Player (supports most codecs): http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
How do I download a video clip from a website?
Try any of the following conversion services:
http://convert2mp3.net/en/ (lets you download Youtube and other clips)
http://en.savefrom.net/ (lets you download Youtube clips)
http://www.orbitdownloader.com/ (application that lets you download video clips from the web)
http://www.cockos.com/licecap/ (application that converts any part of the screen to an animated gif)
How can I access the ftp archive?
The ftp archive is accessible by those who have donated to the community. More information here.
I want to donate but I cannot use PayPal.
Please check here if PayPal accepts money transfer from your bank account.
I just signed up as new member but did not receive any email confirmation.
In such a case we cannot help you as this is generated by the forum script and not by us. Sometimes emails can be delayed on the mail server up to 12 hours. Also check your spam/garbage folder if you have such as it could be filtered out by mistake. If still no luck, sign up again but use another email address.
What is a bonus member?
It is a member who has access to additional picture albums and video clips.
How can I become a bonus member?
You must contribute actively to the community in a regular and consistent manner, such as by adding new material (pictures, videos, links) and/or participating in discussions and/or donating, on an ongoing basis. You cannot violate any rules of the forum. And you need to have completed your profile including gender, age and country. The value of your contributions also matters. For example, a story is of more value than a simple "nice find" or "thanks" message. A series of photos from an event is of more value than a single low-resolution photo. Repeats do not count for bonus membership, the picture/video needs to be new or never posted here before.
I was a bonus member but not anymore. Why?
To keep your bonus membership, you must contribute regularly. Bonus members without any posts for 30 days will be downgraded to standard members. Also make sure that your personal information (sex, age, country) is complete in your profile. If it is not, you must apply again for bonus membership.
