I just joined after lurking for a few months to evaluate the quality of this site. My name is Geoff and I'm in SoCal. As a hobbyist I use Sony DSLR gear, and a LX7 for the street. I'm looking forward to interacting with you.
Hi, I'm in need for help/advice from a Chromebook "ptofessional".
In order to discuss by email and/or pm a couple of topis/issues.
I shall be looking forward to your replies, thanks in advance.
Best regards from The Netherlands,
This is probably something simple, but it's my first variable ND filter experience, and it ain't going so hot so far. I stopped this morning on the way in to work, set up a tripod, put the 14 on the XT, and took this. I noticed it on the rear LCD, and thought "uh oh. Maybe it's just on the LCD...
Anyone else experiencing this as of late? When I go to open a thread to view, the app seems to time out then close abruptly. I've also noticed ads are now appearing and wondering if the latest build is buggy.

I want to set a avater, I've set a profile picture but also want to set a avatar, I see others using a avatar but when I go to the avatar setting page I only see the following:
Any help would be much appreciated! :)
Members have never had to see banner ads on the discussion pages (thread view) here at SC, but between 1) a recent close to 50% increase in server costs, 2) a large reduction in affiliate payments from one of our main affiliate partners (Ebay), and 3) attempts to speed site performance by...
I added a modification that notifies members when they have been quoted in the forum. Unfortunately this mod doesn't let each member decide whether they want quote notifications or not, so either everyone gets them or no one does.
Let me know whether you like it, and after getting some...
This is insane, no way I wrangle the letters seems to work. Has something gone wrong with embedding YouTube videos?
I tried the push button way:
> Hit "Insert Video" button from toolbar
> Paste URL from YouTube "Share link"
…that creates gobbledygook on the message.
I paste full URL...
All five of my forums are on the same server and always have been, but for some reason S.C. seems to have the most performance issues. I've never been able to figure out the problem since all the sites run the same software.
I'm hoping that the latest server upgrade will make the...
here's a strange one, and what's more it occurs in two browsers as well as the android app.
And yes I've cleared cache and cookies and rebooted and whatnot and I can consistently reproduce it.
screen shots make it clear I hope!

There's another way to post images from Flickr that lets other Flickr users favorite your images or view them full size without leaving the forum to go to Flickr. This image shows how to get the code:
The result looks like this (hover over the image, and if you're a logged in Flickr user...
Hi there, is it possible to upload a video to Youtube, edit it online with a Youtube tool and set to publish then using my chromebook computer?
Is a instruction manual available for download?
Or is Vimeo a much better choice?
Best regards, Herman
delete attachments, and gallery photos, in bulk. I can delete one at a time in the gallery... but I cant find how to delete attachments. I am nearly at my limit for both, and I want to get rid of older attachments and gallery shots.
I added a button in the upper right corner of each post* to give members the opportunity to nominate that post to be featured on the front page of the site. We like to feature all kinds of posts - posts containing great photography, posts that review a piece of gear, interesting insights, etc...
For some reason the advertisements on the left side are too wide. They are pushing the entire screen to the right. This is only on the front page. I see both problems on firefox and on IE. Anyone else having this issue?
For some unknown reason I can no longer access the bb code on my images.
It tells me to make the image public . It is !
I have made it private then public again . still no go. Anyone else seeing this happen ?
I'm seeing a weird cacheing problem on SC today.
New posts are not appearing in threads in the browser on my lappy, although I can see them updating correctly on my Android 'phone in the SC app.
a good example is the "$1000" thread, where my 'phone shows drd's latest post, but the browser...
I think Amin mentioned once that any time we click a link from SC to an e-commerce website that our affiliate code is attached. But considering how many purchases will be made by our members in the coming days, I thought it prudent to re-post this so the fraction of a percent goes into our "tip...
This may be in the wrong location for this post.
Situation and a Question.
We have cable, high speed TV, phone and internet. We like to stream movies and past TV shows. I am thinking of getting a modestly priced tablet, such as the Amazon Fire 8.5", or other..., to be able to watch...
Got this, this morning, when making a reply, and it did not take me back to the thread after the reply was posted... so I thought it had not worked and tried again, to get the 30 second message. So, clearly, one can reply, but the system is broken somewhere...
Here's the message
When I set-up my account on this forum, I immediately noticed a very cool feature. Every time I was thanked to or quoted I received a notification to the right of my user name. Now, this feature doesn't seem to be working and I really miss it. Was this feature deactivated for some...
Great app, user friendly, works as it should.
But images are tiny when viewing threads. When I click on the image to view, the image expands but is difficult to navigate because the image(s) switch to ultra-tiny thumbnails or ultra large when I touch the screen.
Is it a setting on my phone...
To SC members, I just sent a PM to Amin and Luke to notify them of new threads from today with Japanese only characters. They are very suspicious for hacked threads. I first only noticed one, opened it up to find all foreign script and an embedded link. I didn't click anything and left the...
Even since the site has been hacked, I have to repeat every action (open a thread, do a search etc) before having it result in a fresh page. I did clean the cookies etc, but so far without any result. Is that me and my connection, or do others suffer from the same?
Edit: sorry for the typos...
The SeriousCompacts.com forum security was today breached by a hacker who was able to gain access to the forum software administrator control panel. As far as we can tell, the hacker's purpose was simply to prove their own capability in hacking as there was no stated grievance.
I am not...
I just got a message from a forum regular that he was having trouble getting the site to open on his Mac. He has cleared everything out and all other sites open quickly. My 2 windows machines are operating normally. Anyone else having issues or is this an isolated case?
I can't figure out how to edit my profile.
I'm sorry I can't find this in the forums if it has already been posted. I'm not savvy about searching. If it's already covered and you know how to search for this topic, you can answer me that instead!
since logging out of SC, and clearing cache & cookies as part of a maintenance cleanup on my PC, I find I can no longer change the forum skin - there are no longer any options in the drop-down.
so i'm now stuck with the default eye-searing orange :eek:
I am bombarded with spam lately on my email account. So I am checking my settings on various sites.
When I checked my privacy settings here, I noticed that "everyone" (so including visitors) could view my contact information. My question is: does that include email address?
Just to be...
Couldn't get onto SC earlier - it was throwing up a faults page saying "database error".
Now it's back, the interface seems to be a pretty standard vBulletin one (no "thanks received" or "new posts" & whatnot)
The past ten days or so I've been experiencing frequent slowdowns in the forum response, sometimes to the point that page requests time out altogether. Other times it's incredibly laggy.
Initially, I thought this was just a problem with the Android app, but it's certainly showing up more and...
Just updated to latest version.
On multi page threads, when I get to the bottom of a page, the "arrows" to go to the next page are greyed so I can't move forward in the thread (but I can go backward!)
If I'm at the top of the same page, the forward arrows aren't greyed and so I can move forward.
i'm a relatively new member, so i'm hoping some more experienced folk can help me understand why i am no longer able to post pictures. i havent posted that many, maybe a dozen or so, and never had an issue. now when i hit the 'upload' button, it appears to work as normal, with the blue...
Our new and improved S.C. App is now available for download. It's a great way to stay in touch with the forum from your iOS or Android mobile device.
App Store link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/seriouscpcts/id650555893?mt=8
Play Store link...
Anybody have an idea on this? I can post new but if I hit "Reply" in any form I just get a spinning icon. Mu-43 still works - it is just here.
I've logged off/on to the site, changed my password, rebooted my computer and nothing seems to work.
Our current S.C. app is being phased out (no longer available in the Apple App Store and Google Play store).
The new S.C. app is now in the Google Play store. Has also been submitted to Apple for approval in the App Store. Currently the app is based on Tapatalk version 1, but we will be...
