The information about uploading no more than 3 images within a 24 hour period is no longer visible. Is that restriction still in place?

The warning about no photos of nests and/or eggs isn't there either.

I agree Kits. Upgrading the site has obviously taken a great deal of work, and all the issues arising from it will take time to resolve, but I do hope the points you've made can be addresssed very soon.

Right now, I'm sticking with the old rules until they post something different.

The other day someone posted ten photos within a few minutes; an established member so not someone who wouldn't have known.

There have been several instances of new posters posting more than 3 photos simply because they aren't aware that there is/was a limit.

Thanks for updating the posting information in the Gallery.

Wasn't the max pic size somewhere around 500kb? And something around 1000 px wide? I don't t remember exactly but I generally stick to approx 900 x 675 and under 500kb and never have a problem.

You might want to check how often that member has posted to OPUS and how familiar they are with the set up, before you throw accusations.

It's easy to forget that rule when none of the other sites I use, haver such in place but don't worry, I won't post any more.

Its not a big deal Andy, your contribution for Opus was well received and welcome, besides the guidelines were not put back in place, so it was our error
not yours.

Interesting Helen.... I thought you were a Gallery Moderator, which would mean you should be able to delete/edit/move etc not only your own pictures but those from any member too?

The maximum size was 1024 px. I would also like to know about any changes related with this issue...

Hi Cristian
I can't actually find any size limits listed. I've uploaded images at 3500 px without a problem.

Once I did one that was over 4000px which seemed to be accepted OK; another time one in that range produced an "Ooops we have a problem" error message but I'm not convinced that was to do with the size.

@Jonno52 Thanks Jonno, nope still can't see it. Probably just a glitch, which will come right, but would like to be in control of my pics. (y)

Hello again Helen

I had another look at my Gallery images and get what you mean. I can delete images posted after the BF upgrade, but not earlier ones (see attached). The only option bottom left is "Report". We should certainly be allowed to delete old images if we want.

I hope this can be fixed.

@Jonno52 sorry for the late reply, just noticed your post. Yes, I hope it can be fixed too. In the meantime I have asked a mod to delete my pics, I can always start again.

Yes, I was going to suggest using the "Report" option to ask for individual images to be deleted. But if you want them all removed, asking a mod to help is the answer. Best of luck, it shouldn't be too difficult!
