    Hello my friends! This is it! The subject of our hard work and wringing of hands.

    I just want to extend a huge thank you to Josh and Sarah with Covalent  Designs for their excellent work here!!!!

    I know the place is a bit plain now, but the focus has been entirely on foundation to this point. Feel free to make suggestions, but please have patience also.

    So, what do you think of the place?

    Well that worked slick!

     

    That is a 13 lb Channel cat caught in the Red River of the north some 3 years back, Sept. On cut bait and light spinning tackle. And as you can no doubt tell from my expression I was pleased with that.

     

    I have hooked bigger, several times, several in the 20-30 class. But landing those really big smart ones is tough. They know ever stick, snag, and sharp edged riprap in their stretch of river.

     

    I hooked a big carp once that made a screaming 100 plus yard run upstream to swim out to a stump or snag, swarm around it 3 times tieing up my line, then stood on his tail and fell away from the snag snapping my line. And leaving me tied to the snag.

    I swear he flipped me the bird with his fin as he fell.

     

    Anyway, love the picture setup, easy peasy. Max size?

      @ghosthawk,

      The max image size that can be upload is 1GB. Keep in mind that uploads over 5MB can start to put a toll on the site’s loading speed. Also, if the upload takes too long, it could be canceled.

    @Sgt. Mike,

    You have to go to the settings in Profile. If you click on the 3 dots (…), then go to settings, you will be able to change your email and password.

    it’s there now Tim & Josh … attempted the change password .. did not take …..still using the recovery (lost) password to log-in for now .   figure it will straighten out in a day or so, might be a glitch in the browser or base kernel giving fits, I’ll run a live update later and see if it that might be the issue. No worries at least I can log in.

    Hello, glad to see the new forum up and running. I hate to sound like a complainer but is there or will there be a way to change the background colors and letter sizes? I have a black header with white writing (Goodsteel forum info) and an orange bar for each post with white writing (post date/time and reply button) but the whole rest of the page is white with fine, gray lettering and outlines.

    Just a tad bit tough to read, is it here or my computer that changes this? The letter size that I can change in my tools is fine it’s just the contrast of the page.

    Yes, we’re back. Well, some of us anyway.

    Yall have to be patient with the look and feel of the forum. Yes, I know it’s drab, but we just got the foundation in, the walls up, and a roof over our heads. Lets make sure we’re all here first, then start working on the drapes and wall paper eh?

    Notice there is a new forum created for design suggestions and complaints. Please think through your recommendations carefully and post a thread there. This is one time when you get a very real say in how the place looks, so don’t squander the opportunity. I’m not saying I’ll take every recommendation, but I’ll sure listen.

    I can get on on my iPad but not my work computer or my smart phone. I get the same message on both  ” this site can’t provide a secure connection” just letting you know. I’ve tried yesterday and today.

    Wheel Gun, I’m using my smart phone about half the time. It’s android. If you’re using Ipad, then that has apple covered.

    All I can say is check your security settings?

    Try using a common browser. It definitely works well with Chrome and Explorer, Firefox, etc etc etc.

    Interesting, Today I’m on my work computer and yesterday it wouldn’t let my even load the front page. No changes to the settings. IT frowns upon shutting off security. Also this time my Password held as yesterday I had to reset again. In other words things are looking GREAT!

    I’m still figuring this stuff out. It’s the strangest thing. So many times I’ve seen this happen where a second try gets through and it works flawlessly from then on.

    Hey, I finally made it!

    Thanks Tim, I was really missing this site.

    Glad to be back!

     

    How do I get rid of the black band that’s in the middle of the thread?

    I don’t know what “black band” you mean. What are you using to access the site? PM me or email me and I’ll try to figure it out.

    There is a black bar or band that goes across my screen that will partially obscure the thread. It reads:

    2017 Goodsteel forum. Designed by Covalent Designs, LLC. In this thread it is right across the photo of you with the cigar. Right in the middle of your pretty mug!

      That, my friend, is an Alec Bradley Tempus. One of the finest rolls of tobacco leaves I ever took a drag on. Bjornb sent me a care package with four Alec Bradley cigars, and just purely by happenstance, one of them was the Tempus. There was also a nice flask of cough medicine in there.

      That was, by far, the best medium flat rate box I ever cut the tape on.

        Bodean, What are you using to view the forum? You are the only one who has made this complaint, and you had enormous difficulties getting logged on as well. I’m wondering if you are running a strange system we have not optimized the site for yet?
