Picture Test:


As a test, Dwight Ennis suggested I try posting a picture that is suspected of being limited to viewers of LSOL or Aristo-Craft. Having tried something similar in the past, I suspect it is limited - and if viewable, probably so because of coincidental reasons of a viewers membership / logon to either LSOL or Aristo.


Can the following picture I am attempting to post be seen or not seen?





It is a close up view of Aristo's UP E8 and SP E9 passenger locos' side view nose compare with installed couplers. (The picture shows the UP E8 loco type loco version having the "door assembly" removed with factory supplied coupler necessitating its uncoupler lever be modified in order to mount it. The SP E9 having the "freight pilot" did not require this modification.)


Thanks for any feedback,
-Ted

EDIT:
Well, as I thought, it is not! Need not go any further.
Thanks,
-Ted

As I feared, LSOL has everything all locked up.
You can't even mention myLargescale.com over there as the reference is immediately deleted. Heaven forbid you be allowed to post photos hosted there anywhere other than "Lysol Approved" forums.



Shameless plug - photos hosted in MLS 1st Class web space have no such restrictions (nor do we restrict what other forums one can menton here). You may wish to consider where your dollar is better spent.

Of interest, it's actually blocked from display only (here). If you click on the yellow/red citation, you can get the correct photo properties and copy/paste them into your browser and SEE the photo you posted.

Copy this into a new browser incidence and you can see the photo.

Thanks Mike,


I noticed the url is accessible, too, but it makes for an unfriendly use by most folks.


Maybe the software used by LSOL looks for the image tags included with its web page identity in the url string and accordingly re-directs to the "Lysol" picture.

I just notice the picture now shows up in my first post - maybe because I am left logged into the LSOL Aristo picture Forum site!
Probably will time out.

Not that I even care, but this didn't work for me. Still get the blocked photo. Maybe because I don't belong to LYSOL?

Actually, I wouldn't be so quick as to think that all of this "proprietary stuff" is aimed soley at MLS! I can tell you that HAGRS, a large scale show held in Kansas City, hasn't been featured, advertised or even mentioned over on LSOL! The only way you would know there was a show was Marty's post about "anybody going?" So much for "promoting the large scale hobby!" So don't feel bad! I'm sure their actions are purely "business" and (only a little bit) personal...

They're strictly pay per view. Doesn't make much sense to me to pay for membership to receive storage space for photos and then not be able to post them anywhere else.

Lsol has stated that the "free" upload site is for Aristo forums only. There is a long relationship between LSOL and Aristo, the Aristo forum used to be hosted by Jon D's company (ISP). When a picture is accessed from the "free" picture part of LSOL, which is identified for Aristo forum users only, it checks to see if the reference is from a forum that is NOT Aristo. Don't know how extensive this is, but it definitely shuts out LSC and MLS.

By the way Ted, Firefox will work with the MLS WYSIWYG editor, but sometimes it does not work correctly. It appears to be a bug in FireFox. Restarting your computer will fix it, so it shows the problem is at the FireFox end.

I find the WYSIWYG access to be inconsistent with Firefox.
For now, as I type this in Firefox - real time typing works, but cut and paste still does not work.


Also, memories are coming back to me as the WYSIWYG editor used in the TWIKI where I work.

I always had to fool with it to deal with spacing and line feeds / CRs by going back and forth between the HTML and normal modes.

In fact, using this MLS WYSIWYG does the same thing, even when using IE

When I used the IE browser and got the cut and paste to work and tried to correct for too much space between sentences or paragraphs the darn thing changed the font size of some of the words.
Bizarre indeed and royal pain in the ass.
