How do I provide feedback about this community itself?

and when i click on your blurry thumbnail, why does it just show the same blurry thumbnail but slightly bigger?

That's just what you get when you host your file on this site. It is limited to a small resolution. To post a full resolution image, you need to link it to a 3rd party hosting service such as Imgur.

Are there any published rules for using the forum? I cannot seem to find them if there are.

I see people successfully circumventing the "click magnifying glass to display image smaller than thumbnail" feature of the forum and posting images that display at their full size, and I see people saying that the way to do this is to host the image on another site.

However, I do not remember seeing an exact recipe for doing this with any particular site. I have accounts at Google Drive, Google Photos, Flickr, and MEGA, and at this point, I've given up and just put a url in my posts. If someone can be bothered to click on it, they get to see my picture.

Still, I would like to be able to post images that are viewable at their original, legible size. Is there a way to do this with the hosting services I already use? Can someone post an exact recipe?

go to https://imgur.com/

click "new post" at top-left

upload your image (browse & select or dragon-drop)

when it says "success" and shows you the image, right-click the image and choose "copy image location" (may be phrased differently in different browsers)

come to your post/reply, click the "insert other media" button

paste the image location url into the popup

here's one i just did:

I use   https://www.irfanview.com/ to paste and edit screenshots.  I save the screenshots as jpg files.  I use    https://www.4shared.com/  to store  jpg format images in the cloud.

To keep things organized I created a storage folder in 4shared.com and labeled the folder "Screenshots".   Once a screenshot is uploaded to 4shared.com the website provides me with the capability to select a download link, HTML link or "forum" link to copy.  The forum link includes the brackets the forum software needs to know for the forum software to display the image.   An example image link is below.

Whenever I reply to a thread, my screen comes up with "I" (Italics) enabled.  I have to key in and then highlight it and remove the Italics.

I'm using Win 10 Pro V1901  and Edge browser.

@Jack Stoner,

It's likely some kind of data is stuck in the Edge browser cache.  I would try going through the browser settings to remove the site history, delete cookies and refresh the browser.  The browser might also be refreshed by updating the operating system to V1909.

sounds like a javascipt compatibility thing? ms are notoriously slow on that particular update, have you tried firefox?

I have 1909.  Its not all the time, but "most" of the time.   I have the Edge Beta (Chromium) installed and it does it with that browser too.

@Jack Stoner, My suggestion to update was based in the Win 10 Pro build information (1901) in your original post.  Good to read you're current.  If you haven't tried clearing browser cookies or flushing the browser cache you may want to.  Some information such as settings carry over even after an update and it could be as simple as a stuck data bit.

This has been happening for a long time, probably since the start of this forum but I just got around to mentioning it.  That means many Win 10 versions,  cache cleanings, etc.  It also happens on a laptop I have with Win 10. 

BTW. I'm a computer tech.

To add,  Murphy's Law.  It hasn't happened since I mentioned it.

I, and a couple other forum members, have helped a lot of users with Computer issues.  A computer section, like the old forum, should be added to this forum.

Other music/recording forums such as gearslutz and The Steel Guitar Forum include computer forum sections.

Definitely want to "upvote" this idea.  A part of the forum dedicated to the discussion of  "Computers for Audio" would be totally awesome.  I visited that part of the Legacy Cakewalk Forums all the time.

 

In the meantime, would anyone be able to offer a link or links to forums on other sites (in addition to gearslutz and The Steel Guitar Forum, that is) that are dedicated to Audio Workstations?  Thanks !!

Not a "recording only" forum, but the www.tenforums.com is one to add to the list.   I've helped a couple with recording or related problems on this forum.  Its the best Win 10 forum on the net.

I agree that is a great idea. I miss the area that was provided in the old forum for that.

Computers, and Windows are complicated beasts, but the computer audio requirements are a specific subset of Windows usage, and deserve their own sub-forum for discussion.
