I'm slowly uploading our classic smilies. I created an astro section but where should I put the other smilies, like ::shiny chicken::?

A new section? Or add them to "default"?

saturn new symbol Uranus new symbol Venus symbol new  

Libra can't decide.

Crap! I had to lower the upload limit until I can figure this out! I want people to be able to upload pics (that you don't have to click). I am not sure why pics don't display.

I raised the limit to see if that helped. People uploaded large avatars which slowed the forum, dramatically.

I am trying to get this is all sorted. I'm sorry I'm slow.  For the record, bitching at me is not at all helpful, lol.  I mean, it's f'in ridiculous. Bruise

Can someone help make this place lively while I work on this? 
Please?

If my old PC hadn’t broke I could search my old photos and find the sizes I used. I do remember my avatars were teeny tiny, in the low 100s KB.  The uploaded photos were certainly less than the 2 MB this new site allowed. 

I definitely remember a different size limit on avatars and inserted photos.

Please take care of yourself. We can figure this out later, like Tam said.

The deal is, I want people to be able to upload pics that display in the threads. Right now, far as I can tell this is not possible. I thought it might be because the limit was set too low so I raised it from 2 to 8 to 10. I did not realize this would allow huge avatars to be uploaded.

I think I have solved the avatar thing but I am not sure. I have not solved the pic thing but can't work on this right now because I have consultations, which I need to do because that is how I pay for the site and everything else.

It's peak harvest right now - my garden is overflowing and I'm trying to do my best not to waste food.

I am also trying to prepare for not being able to drive for a month... or whatever. I have a mammogram tomorrow and just got a call from the hospital, I have the 33% deal and have to put antibiotic in my nose for five days.. which means I have to pick it up.

If you haven't gathered, I have no help with any of this for reasons that are impossible to explain, the same way I could not explain the situation with my daughter... who I talk to daily, now.

She would help me if she could but she cannot drive. I am trying to help her with this but here again, I can only do one thing at a time.

You may think I should not have changed the forum or the maybe not at this time. But you cannot see what I can see behind the scenes. Do you think I had a choice?

There is no problem here that cannot be solved but I cannot work on my site when I am with a client and if there are no clients, there is no site.

I really wish people had more faith in me. I've sure as hell earned it.

Now I have to do the dishes!  Because making sauce and cooking meals ahead for when I come home and will have no help, makes a mess. Not that I mind a mess so much, but the garden is calling me, producing wildly, thanks be to God!  I mean, the last thing I want to do is complain about having too much food. I well know what it's like to have none.

** none of this is personal to sue ellen*  It's just my explanation and what I am willing to share.

And oh yeah, my mower is broken again. It has not worked for longer than 10 days all season! I have to pay to have it repair.. pain.

@elsa I didn’t take it personally. I do wish I had not triggered you. You have so much on your plate. It will work out. You amaze me. 
Back to the photo sizing, when my PC worked I used a Windows 7 photo editor which had preset resize selection options described as good for thumbnails, emails, blogs, etc. I did some avatar thumbnails for some people here. That was years ago!

@sue-ellen You didn't trigger me. I did not like some mail I got this morning. It irritated me. 

And then a number of things followed.

I am not actually triggered, as I understand the word. You're dealing with a progressed dble Scorpio ++, a natal packed 8th with a stellium that includes Pluto on the ascendant.

Of course I am exuding!

I am also laughing my ass off and telling copious numbers of jokes. Unfortunately, these things are frowned upon and so my hologram appears "triggered".

Jupiter too.  But yeah. I am juggling a lot and people are so fucking sensitive and I do have Libra and I am forced to be nice due to being drawn this way. On top of that I am in the South and while I love it here - LOVE IT, I am afraid I was curt to the nurse who wanted to run through the treatment for the bacteria... probably required to do it. But guess what?

The other nurse outlined it all in slow motion, plus I have written instructions and she calls 2.5 minutes before a consultation... I now feel bad for rushing her and there such seems no way to win sometimes.

And I feel people are insanely unforgiving at this time in all our lives so of course, I hope for that anyway, but I also have to be overly forgiving myself to balance.  Damn Libra!

So that's why phoenix got all that rope.

I think my feelings and motivations are constantly and consistently misread.  Jeez, if any of you knew the reality.

And I don't say that to be provocative or secretive. Y'all wouldn't believe me anyway. It's hopeless in that regard.

One more thing... my daughter sent me something that irritated the piss out of me as well.  Not her intention but I don't like it when she does no use her full brain, which old-timers know to be formidable.

Basically, she can save any stupidity face for her other Gemini life.

I know I am the most interesting character in her life, though she does love El Matador. And I will always be here but that does not mean I won't get irritated.  You saw my back. I am dealing with that with 1 Tylenol 3 at night, which I understand is "baby aspirin"?

And Celebrex.  So I guess I don't like the mail... it's the mail MARS MERCURY that irritates me.

I have to be in town for the mammo, in the 6 ams. So many distractions, I'm afraid I'll forget.

Turns out, the pics will not display without an addon which I will buy and configure as soon as I have a chance. Envy
