I stumbled on this site about 3 hours ago, I said, “Wow, maybe my kinda guys!” Signed up, wrote a brief summary of my latest very crude project, ready to upload a pic. Nope, not from my laptop. OK, went back to my desktop. Nope. Has to be from Photobucket. OMG, I thought they bellied up years ago?

Signed up at Photobucket, also did the link to Facebook, belt AND suspenders, dontcha know.

Tried to upload picture. Nope.

Hit Photochop, resized pic to make it smaller, uploaded to Photobucket, cool. Tried to upload pic to my little story here. Nope. Went to this site’s help- not much info matched up… tried again…


I think Y’all would get a chuckle from my post, with pics, but if I cannot upload from my computer, forget it. I will just lurk and admire your work and steal your ideas.

Eyes are burning, time for meds. Yeah, I am kinda disappointed.

Update- Photobucket login just failed… yet again. Sigh.

Hi there uncltodd. Welcome to lumberjocks. Just to let you know it takes about a day for your first project (at least that’s what it did for me) to get approved so don’t lose hope. We would all love to see it. We all like to gain knowledge about woodworking from one another so don’t give up yet. It will show up. Welcome again

I, as a user of LJ, for about 5 years do not understand what is being said. I am sorry for your frustration but I just upload all my pic’s from my SD card, after editing and rotating and all that stuff. Sorry you have had issues. Let me know if I can help.

uncltodd, your picture actually did upload just fine the first time, but it went to the NSA. They are now admiring your project and, I’m sure, are very appreciative of your efforts.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks!

I think you gotta get approved, wait 10 postings, or something
like that.

Patience Uncltodd, see ya in the winners circle.

MsDebbie . . . . . . . . Where you be ?!

At last, the back has been reinvented, even though I have to hit it 6 times for anything to take place. Then, in the process of backing up, HD hits with a FULL SCREEN of ads on the way back ! Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa ?
