based on your avatar, and that you are quoting yourself in a post that you told everyone to ignore, I'd say you're bordering Toxic Psychosis....

What you describe is exactly how I use the new forum, i.e. N&F forum/purple bar tool. It works great! Your bolded text above is what I was referring to when I asked if we could be given a choice with regards to default settings in the N&F forum. I don't really want to have to make that second click to switch to the "followed and own" list.

Me neither. I go there, click on a thread and when I come back it's back in New Posts mode and I have to click again. But that will change. We just need a bit of patience as there is a lot on Pekka's plate at the moment. :-)

Is it possible when quoting someone's post to break it into different segments? For example, if someone asks several questions, can I have my reply as:

Question #1
Answer #1
Question #2
Answer #2 etc... Does this even make sense? Thanks

I just used the split quote under quote tools to do this. Just put the curse at the point you want to split and click split quote.

Split quote is brilliant!

But should somebody really have to resize their browser to trigger a way to see the exif data? I have heard many times that some of the design decisions that were made for the new site was because this is a photography themed site. Why would there not automatically be a link to view the exif data on every picture when it is available, without having to change the way I am viewing a thread? Viewing exif data is a very common thing to do on a photography website. Especially when CC on a photo is requested.

Whether meta data is included, depends on whether the photographer included it. A lot never bothered to do so on old POTN. The big majority of people didn't care to include the exif. Only a small percentage of people did include it, so you could right click and there it was. But more often than not I found there was nothing, and I right clicked a lot!
However, the galleries are a great incentive for people to include the exif now, because without the meta data you cannot add an image to your gallery. From what I have seen so far, people are loving the galleries and filling them up like crazy, which is great. And all those image have the exif showing right above it.

Well to be fair, I don't think most folks know how the exif gets stripped. For example in Photoshop, if you save for web, it strips it for you. If you save a JPG normally though, it won't, but will change a few things to show Photoshop was the agent of change. Flickr and other sites also remove EXIF depending on how you are viewing the image, I believe. It is easy for EXIF to just be pulled off an image depending on your software choice, and even hosting choice. IE. I don't think there were any conscious choices in many situations to strip the EXIF, it just "happened". :)


One other thing -- PBase and Flickr both strip metadata on resized images. Pekka mentioned this during the beta testing and therefore AMASS can't undo what has been done by those two image hosting sites.

Yes, a lot of the photo hosting sites strip the exif when you embed anything other than the "original" file. flickr does, ipernity does too. This is why I always upload the maximum allowed image size at POTN, which is now 1280px on the long side. That way I can choose the original but resized file (1280px Original) and have the exif intact. If I choose 1280px Large, it will strip the exif too. They really insist that you embed the "original" file. :rolleyes:

I do that too, and that's how I posted to Potn previously but now the amass exif retriever doesn't find the exif even though my original file is the 1280 one.

I wonder if there's a way that instead of inserting the URL and clicking fetch pekka could change it so that it was the bbcode that was inserted and then click search to allow the exif to be retrievable? I really want to use the gallery function but finding it tedious flicking back and forward to flickr as I input each field on the exif

Looks like flickr even strips the exif even if you share original size(I also switched to just uploading 1024 and now 1280) at least my exif viewer isn't seeing it.

So can we have a forum category dedicated to tripod discussion?

The tripod discussion which is very interesting to many is buried somewhere. Kinda mixed up with other stuff (I think)... :cry:

The only thing with that split quote vs the manual way is that if someone wanted to go to the original post, they have to scroll to the first quoted section to click on the referential link. Some people take a long post and answer everyting line by line, and eventually I get lost as to what the original argument was, and have to go to reply that prompted the big reply. :)
