    More failed attempts using newly revised system

    I think I know the reason why with the newly revised system photos are retained in the system. It's so that when you screw up trying to make a post, which is almost inevitable with the new system, you don't have to go through the hassle of uploading the photos from your computer again! I don't think I have made a single post with the new system without having to endure at least one failed attempt, sometimes several. One thing I don't understand is why the heck the uploaded photos appear side-by-side instead of being strung out vertically in a single column. When this happens it's necessary to go through the hassle of rearranging them for final display. Sometimes I lose a photo when I have to go through the rearrangement hassle.

    The new system definitely requires some fixes, and I repeat my belief that this forum needs a user's guide with detailed instructions for posting photos. Mr. Moderator, how about an appeal to management for help. Tell 'em the troops are getting restless!

    That's a great idea. But the reality is, right now I am management, moderator, editor, graphic designer...

    I understand you're frustrated, though. I haven't found it as difficult as you. On the other hand, I don't have much time to share my own photos these days. The bottom line is, I hear you and agree something needs to be done.

    The reason you can save photos is some people, on some forums, like to keep a library of photos that they use regularly. That's not something most of us are likely to do. But that's the reason that feature is there.

    I'm not a real fan of the new system yet, but have not experienced as much hassle with it as you have Bob.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    I'm getting better at posting photos, but users should not have to learn the system by trial and error instead of having clear detailed instructions on how to proceed.

    Re: More failed attempts using newly revised system

    I found it fairly simple, and as I discovered how to use it I posted my step by step in the Sports photo forum.

    I am not a fan of "discoverable" or "intuitive" interfaces - the first because I don't have time to go and discover how it works, and the second because if it's intuitive to me it definitely won't be to someone else (I'm a computer geek).
