Message 1340437 - Posted: 22 Feb 2013, 22:54:09 UTC - in response to Message 1340395.

How come Vic (to name but one), without asking a mod for assistance, can change a thread name when there are messages posted?

I think the rules are - Mod, just about any time, owner once there is a post, the rest never.

I looked at Kitchen Tool 3 and didn't see any way I could change it.

To change a thread title:

OP posts - not reply or quote - to the thread. He then hits edit on the post. Above the text of his post he will see a box where he can change the thread title. He accepts his edit. Title is changed. If need be he can then ask a mod, via red-X, to hide the post he had to make to change it.

That's good to know we can change our own thread title. Didn't know that...

Seems the "count to" thread is slowing down, had to rescue it from the almost the bottom of the page!!

Sometimes an image is so good I'm tempted to download it and put in the number just so I can use it in the counting thread.




P.S. Is there a parameter I can put in the image tag to set the size I want it to appear as, instead of its native size?

Put the image on photobucket and set it to 640 X 480 or what ever.

Reply to Beets' Message ID 1340786:

Goat eats cabbage - happy goat
Wolf eats goat - happy wolf
Wolf eats cabbage -wolf gets bad wind

Cabbage wins!

So eat not transitive then?

Certainly not, we have to watch those transitive fats.

Wrong size for that, unless they're Vic's goldfish. (That's a major hint.)

Well, I'm thinking of the very small ones. Actually probably a lot smaller than the ones Vic is talking about getting.

Perhaps a note in the "rules" of the count too thread to not post any obviously copyright pictures, There were several in the last thread and yes I know I am to blame!!

The new Google picture search doesn't always make it obvious if the picture is copyright, you must check on the website concerned before posting.

I think perhaps that:

Probably means we should not be using these images.

Just saying.

depends where the site is. IIRC US and other countries are fairly liberal when it comes to 'fair usage' 'non-profit' use - such as linking here.
You'd have to know the copyright laws of the hosting coutry fairly well.
It often is enough if you do a proper citation of the source.

Obviously best if there isn't a restrictive copyright on it.

Its not up to the state concerned but the individual concerned. Some folks (and companies) are OK, provided you ask first, others can be very upset and reach for their lawyers at the first hint.

The best way to avoid such legal unpleasantness is to avoid using pictures that have obvious (C) marks on them - better safe than sorry.

The owner can change the thread title if he or she knows how.

Make a new post. Then after the post is up hit edit. When you get your edit screen you also can edit the thread title. No need for Mod help.

Now you know too.
