Miro is the computer wizard around here, but what we want to do is allow old posts to be edited in the Chip of the Day thread only.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I really appreciate that feature, Wiz. Perhaps you can clear up my uncertainty -- Can other members edit their own posts in that thread as I can for mine, such as they might post a link to a new chip image and replace an image that is now obscured by Photobucket? If not, do you have a suggestion as to how we might fix those obscured images if replacements are (or become) available?

Hey..... It's possible to upload other file types!!!
I bet that wasn't intentional!!!


This is fixed now

The picture that got rejected was about 2.3 MB. I was able to load one that's 1.5 MB.

Also, there's no easy way to add/change a photo to an existing post. What you can do is, you can create a new post, upload photos, cancel the new post, and manually insert an [IMG] tag to the one where you actually want to add/change the photo.



The limit is 5MB, not sure what is wrong with the image you're trying to upload (maybe you can send it somehow to me in PM, so I could check). I've tried some that are 4MB and it's working.
Adding images on edit also enabled now.

and spelling of 'unsuccessful' fixed.

Wonderful!!! This might be the needed solution to one of the major difficulties in the Casino Chip of the Day thread! At my last count, there were 118 chip-of-the-day images that have disappeared because they had been stored at Photobucket or one of the other services that started charging to host photos and subsequently blocked access to the photos from folks who didn't agree to pay the fee.

One very important factor related to that possible use of this new forum feature: On the (somewhat risky) assumption that members still have their original images of these chips (or could shoot new ones), is there (or will there be) a way for a poster to edit a very old post and replace a now-obscured-photo link with a new "Insert my picture" image? That would be great, and if that is the case, I will send PMs to the people who suffered that photo loss and let them know which of their chip-of-the-day posts need to be revised.

Thanks in advance!


This is done and now everyone can modify their posts in "Casino chip of the day" section and re-upload the images :)

I think itís a date thing. I.E. All posts created prior to the rule about no edits are still editable. Additionally, I checked. I can edit my own posts, in ANY thread, as long as theyíre old enough.

I donít know what the cutoff date is.

FYI. All 3 of your index posts are dated 2/27/2010 but obviously werenít created the same day, and are before the cutoff.

Test by trying to edit a post thatís a couple days old as well as one thatís at least 10 years old. And not in that thread.


Just to answer this one, cutoff date is 10/21/2015

Thank you very much! This may well provide the avenue to get the thread repaired (a need that combined with a pandemic to annoy the heck out of me for the past year or so.)

I will soon type up the list of missing chip images (have it handwritten now) and start passing it on via PM to folks who have lost quite a few from their posts. I'm hoping that many of those chip-posters still have saved image files or could shoot new ones and would be willing to go to the trouble to edit their posts to replace the images. I felt we had a good thread going for a long time, and then we lost a bunch of photos that were a significant element of the thread.

The 2.35 MB image that failed yesterday now loads, as well as a 4.8 MB image. Not sure why it wouldn't yesterday.

I can't watch YouTube videos anymore.

Keep getting error message

Happened to start after this new posting pictures was added.

Is one affecting the other?
