1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    I have uploaded quite a few pictures to my profile page now. I'm having some problems with some of them orienting themselves upside down or rotated when uploaded.

    It looks a bit weird on some of the pictures when I'm holding up a skinned-out rabbit and it is stretched out horizontally!

    I can't find solutions on the forum by searching, can anybody offer me some advice on how to turn the pictures the right way up?

    I had the same problem so I stopped using the forum and hosted them externally on Photobucket,the upload system is easier to use too

    James, did you upload from a phone ?

    It could just be the way the pic was originally orientated when first taken ?

    Edit - as above, Matts right, Photobucket is easy

    Poor choice of the word Wonkey, everyone will be thinking you have some tuned rifles by Wonkey Donkey in your profile.

    Up load your pictures to your computers photo album, correct the image if its on the pizz and they should post on the forum the same way as your seeing them.

    They have come from a mac, android tablet and iPhone, all give the same problems. The forum's photo upload is not user friendly at all, it seems to try and recognise green and blue as sky and grass and auto rotate pictures accordingly. I might try photo bucket but I have never used it before.

    Thank you you for all your help.

    Photobucket is relatively user friendly,in recent years it hasn't been as good but it's still easier than using the forum for me.
