I posted earlier today a rather lengthy update to my Sir Lancelot build log, containing 12 photos & plenty of accompanying text.
However, when I looked at my thread later in full, about a quarter/third had been omitted! I initially put this down to it perhaps being too long to fit into the current page I was on within the thread (page 4).
So, I re-did the rest of the posting, but when reviewing the thread again, this too had all been added to page 4!!
Was the earlier update problem down to me trying to post too much in one go?
Thanks, Paul.

I'm not sure to be honest but I suspect that the Forum has been set up to manage 'normal' sized posts and there may have been some sort of processing delay. This software platform does have some inexplicable glitches but it seems youhave managed to get everything on in the end from what you say. Did you bring the images across from an album?

Hi Colin,
Yes, the photos were initially added to my album 'Sir Lancelot Build Log', then brought across into the posting by clicking the 'Insert Image' icon.
I've reviewed my Sir L. thread, and with one exception, the most photos included in a single posting has been six. The exception was one posting with seven photos, but text in this posting was minimal.
Cheers, Paul.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
