Quick Forum links by subject matter

This page is from the How to Thread. This is where I normally start to find content links. I guess we have accomplished a lot here. I don't like to be a broken record but if I can improve or clarify something then fine I will. I tried to explain things thoroughly for all the readers who will follow. I find this lacking in other forums and it is appreciated here. Thanks.


My initial intro number 142 On page 15! I think the membership was around 800 back then.



Yes ! A good idea, most forums dislike reviewing old threads but I encourage it.
My tags for threads need work.
I'll reserve my spot here.
Lately,I have been reviewing my gallery and posting the url where they are found in the forum.

Photobucket is very easy to use. I upload multiple pictures at a time. I can also write on them while they are still in use here. The changes appear on the next page refresh. WIth attachments you have to delete and upload another picture.and then add it to the post. Also Photobucket links are viewable to non members, lurking.

Many thanks, but ...

I'll deflect my gold star over to T-Man on this thread (and many of its links) ... he's the real inspiration and resource organizer here.
