Photo Submit Help

-> Philip on May 27 2007
We welcome all material sent in by our members, the following is intended to help those who may have difficulties uploading photos. Most photographs taken with digital cameras are formatted with printing in mind, therefore they would be way too large for a posting on a website and would need to be re-sized before uploading. If you're having problems uploading photographs to the site, I've written this help file to assist you.

Moving over Forum Posts

-> Philip on May 12 2007
After encountering more than expected problems moving over the old posts and users from the previous forum, we've decided that due to the amount of work involved we'll only bring over the last six month's worth of posts.

It took a little longer than expected to sort out , but now they're pretty much done and dusted. Apologies to anyone who has posted further back than that. Feel free to repost any questions you've posted in the past or indeed any new one's.
