Does pca website go world-wide?

What is the percentage of non UK surfers and subscribers to this site? Seems to me it's a uk site.

Aitchbee - that quote was taken from your most recent post in Webdesign.

No, we are not splitting hairs. Do I really have to explain?

"show visual images of my posts on Speakers Corner" obviously means posting screencaps of the PCA forum page with your post taking centre stage.

This statement has led the FE to respond as he did in that post.

"show visual images in my posts on Speakers Corner" means inserting photos or other images into your post to illustrate a point. Like you say:

"to be able to enhance my inputs to this forum by doing a CLICK here link to show some 'schnapps' I have taken.Photography is a good way to tell a story...don't you think?"

I couldn't agree more.

A great site that I use, is It is very simple to use, and does not even require registration, unless you want to use it alot, it is better to register.

I have not used photobucket or and other uploader as imageshack gives me everything that fits my needs.

There is even an app for iphone, ipad, which is really good.

I just thought to suggest something that is likely to meet your needs.

I even uploads videos (not something that I have used, as YouTube is my Video uploader.

There is a limited version and pay for version. The Pay for version allows for over 6mb images and is unlimited uploads but I have 26 on at the moment, and am not sure how many more am able to use, but I guess it is just a matter of finding out if it is enough for your needs.

If not, then at least you have tried.

I might look into photobucket or something soon a later, but not until I have used imageshack up to the bones

You should listen to what Covergirl has said she is absolutely right.

That simple change of "of" and "in" completely changes why the FE said what he did in Webdesign post.

  Aitchbee 16:24 22 Jul 2011

Covergirl and bremner both of you are correct.My way with words is sometimes lacking in what I mean to convey.Thanks for putting me right. Appologies all round.I hope everyone gets the gist of my intentions.HB

  Aitchbee 16:44 22 Jul 2011

My intentions are to continue to post and reply to posts by the members in the way I have been doing for the past 18 months.And if it were possible to augment these posts (occasionally with a photograph which I have taken) to enhance and illucidate any matter where a photograpgh would be fitting. My website which would be professionally maintained (by my friend) is where the photos would be placed.I thought this would be straight-forward. I take photos with a simple digital camera. I think members might like to see 'My Verandah Improvements' or Glasgow's Big Road Development or that pigeon that eats snails.

Please restrict discussion about your website to the thread I transferred to the webdesign forum.

If you want to post links to images you've taken you don't have to go through the process of maintaining a website - you could simply post links to images you've uploaded to a Photobucket account, like other forum members do.

  Aitchbee 17:22 22 Jul 2011

Ok FE - thanks for your patience and consideration. HB

"So is all stuff from on PC Advisor site copyrighted?"

Yes, as far as the forum is concerned it is. The moment you publish a post here the test becomes subject to our copyright, and may not be published or distributed in any form without our prior consent.

If you want to copy and paste a few lines of a post in some other place I would almost certainly be happy to give our consent, but as a general principle you must ask us first. If you wanted to publish great reams of text from our threads on some other computer advice website you would be very unlikely to get our consent.

Does that apply to youtube when you comment on a video?
