Really Marc, is it that difficult?

1) Go to your email program
2) Select \"create message\"
3) In the \"To:\" field, type \"webmaster@gunks.com\"
4) In the subject line, type \"photo submission\"
5) Attach a suitable image
6) Press \"Send\"

Do we really need to code a new page for you to submit a photo? Don't you think there's enough to work on at the moment? It will take the remainder of the year to address your current list of gripes.

Let's see....
We used to be able to submit photos directly to a photo gallery that was ostensibly one of the features of the site - now gone.

Existing photos in the gallery - either gone or inaccessible.

Existing content - gone or inaccessible, which already at least one user (<- over there, in the shout box) is asking about.

Other site features now broken/not working.

Apparently multiple accounts/login credentials needed for certain site features to work - a ludicrous requirement even 5 years ago.

Basic browser bugs that could have been caught with even cursory examination/QA.

You seem to want this to look and operate like a professionally designed site. You even had the gall at one time to suggest payment for access to a partner database.

And you call these merely "gripes". Interesting viewpoint.

My suggestion is that you decide what you want this site to be, then either put in the necessary effort to make it a realistic endeavor, or donate it to someone who cares.

One not very controversial easy to do suggestion is to consolidate the threads below

Changed again
Gunks.com doesn't load on some computers
Photo Gallery gone??
Bug - Separate Login Needed?
The NEW gunks.com
Logging on...
The Site is Falling Apart


into one, consisting of all the praise and gripes apropos the recent chages.

Mark-
Since you're feeling generous with your suggestions, including that I "dontate the site to someone who cares", why don't you volunteer to do some actual work on the site? After all, you'd be getting paid as much as we do (more actually), and for once, you'd actually make a substantive contribution.

I find your suggestions so comical--like your comment about catching all the problems with some cursory Q & A. Well you're right! I'm going to go down to the 24th floor of the Gunks corporate tower and go rip those guys in QA a new one!

You'll pardon me if I don't respond to any more of your helpful posts, but there's actually work to do here.

EVAN PLEASE FIX THE COPY PASTE ERROR.

Or may I suggest option B, I'm more then happy to buy the domiain and forum user list along with archived data, that way you don't have to be bothered with these fixes or silly requests from the user base.

Thanks for the efforts



Mike

Care to elaborate on what the "COPY PASTE" error is? As for plan B, if you were serious, you would contact me in a more appropriate way.

If you copy to the clipboard from another source - web page, word processor, etc - and then paste that into a post edit panel on gunks.com, all the text after a certain set of characters will be truncated/removed/not appear - whatever you want to call it. I haven't tested it as extensively as oenophore et al, but it appears that this occurs after extended ascii characters. It's behaving like it's not using/respecting UTF-8 encoding. This may just be a setting in ubb threads or the content database may not be set up to use the full character set.

In any case, it's caused difficulty when trying to paste content into a post. The bug has been mentioned in this forum as well as others.

We weren't able to reproduce the error. Can someone give us a precise example of something they tried to paste in and we'll debug it from there?

Thanks.

See: http://gunks.com/ubbthreads7/ubbthreads.php/topics/43128/I_found_a_truncation_bug#Post43128

...for starters. Others have more experience with it than I. Oenophore, for one, has investigated it a bit.

You've got to see it yourself.
Cut some text from a webpage with " or ' or - . Paste the text into a post. It will look ok on the post screen. It will look ok on the preview screen. Submit it and see the text truncated at that punctuation mark. The same is the case for text cut and pasted from Microsoft Word.
