Fun and Games / Let's play a game...
« on: July 16, 2017, 09:53:22 AM »
I'm headed for DEFCON, the hackers conference, in Las Vegas next week, and while there will be all sorts of hacking going on, most people don't realize it's 90% contests and games! In fact, most of what you see posted online about DEFCON is the talks; i.e., the 10% that is NOT contests and games. So that got me thinking: This forum needs some WFF-type fun and games. That's why I added a new category.

And I'm adding its first game...but since it's in the attachments, you have to login to see it. Start with GameWhy, then read 1, 2, and 3.

Have fun!

Questions / Re: Question about selling

I think I discovered how to do it: At the bottom of the post is a button labeled 'Notify'. Hit that and you'll get an option to be notified of replies to your post.

I was unable to find a setting that allows you to be notified automatically of any responses to your posts, and frankly, I'm glad because personally I would not want to be inundated with messages telling me of responses to my posts. But I understand your point; notifications would be nice. Respondents have the option of emailing you through the board using the little envelope icon the the left, underneath your name, but otherwise, you'll have to check for replies. If I wanted a piece for sale, I'd probably email rather than post, but maybe I just have a greater sense of urgency.

As for the number of For Sale posts, people are still posting to the old boards, but those boards are deprecated and should disappear soon.

This forum has a lot of features; I'm still discovering them myself! I understand that it will take some time for people to acclimate.

Post mice for selling the same way you posted your question, except that you post under the For Sale board rather than the General Information board.  And since you have to login to post in the first place, you can Attach photos to posting as well. See link below the message body area that says "Attachments and other options", then click on it to add photos. Note that there are file size restrictions on attachments, so you might need to lighten up your photos by either making them smaller or less resolute. Or use multiple postings.

For those of you watching the For Sale board, note that you will only see the photos if you are currently logged in; Guest logins cannot view the photos.

Events / Mouse Expo 2017
« on: March 04, 2017, 01:49:44 AM »
Brenda recently posted preliminary info about the upcoming Mouse Expo in San Luis Obispo May 5-7. See http://mouseexpo.com/ for details. It's also on the forum calendar.

Actually, this happens EVERY year on March 3rd.

The WFFCC hosts a subscriber pool to the Nu Insight pricing service (Disclaimer: Yes, that's my baby!) Instead of the usual $100 annual subscription, WFFCC members may join the pool for a donation of $10 or more. You may donate via PayPal here:

http://www.neu-insight.com/wff/renew/

If you've never subscribed before, you may register here:

http://www.neu-insight.com/wff/pricing/

The catch, of course, is that this subscription runs from March 3rd to March 3rd, so if you want the most out of the service, it's best not to wait until March 3rd (or later) to join. Once you're in the pool, you can renew any time and I'll just push your expiration out another year.

If you're wondering if the service is worth $10, consider this: I process an average of 3000+ prices every month, and if you think you can do that for less than $1, send me a note and I'll hire you. Heck, I'll make it an even dollar for the month! ;-) But seriously, there is no other service out there that provides WFF pricing data as current as Nu Insight's.

Apparently spammers just love this forum because I routinely get 3 or 4 registration requests daily from them. For this reason, I switched the registration process from 'automatic authorization via email response' to 'approval by admin' (mainly me). Luckily, a lot of spammers don't look like mousers online, so it's not difficult to screen them out. Besides, the first time they spam, I cast them out along with all their posts.

So, if you're planning to join this forum,

1. Expect to wait a day or so for me to approve your account. Consider the delay your contribution to keeping spam off this forum. I'll do my best to approve your account quickly, but occasionally I'm incommunicado.
2. Please look like a mouser and not a spammer (If you're a mouser, you probably don't know what I mean, but just look like yourself. Don't try to be a wiseguy and impersonate a spammer unless you really enjoy being turned away at the door--the forum software makes it really easy to bunt spammers into the weeds.)
3. Spam once and you're out the door.

If I cast you out by mistake, please send me an email. You can find my address all over the WFFCC Website. My apologies in advance.

Photos of Wee Forest Folk / Post photos by making them attachments
« on: January 01, 2017, 09:50:29 PM »
You'll see "Attachments and other options" below the space for the message body; click on that and follow instructions. Be sure to note the total size limitation--it helps to save photos as for the Web, which trims the size without reducing the image size itself.

General Discussion / Re: Idea for general topic on board - mouse displays
« on: December 16, 2016, 07:24:12 PM »
I'll set up a display topic--good suggestion!

You are allowed to post more than one photo at a time if the aggregate file size is under the stated limit. A key point here may be saving the image in a way that is suitable for the Web, which should reduce file size without reducing image size.

General Discussion / File size, not image size, is the key
« on: December 16, 2016, 07:21:21 PM »
I can't change the file size restriction on posting; that limit is set in the software. But often you can reduce the file size of the image significantly by saving in a format suitable for the Web. Try that instead of reducing the image size.
