Hi Andy



We have been talking about picture and report quality lately. I gave I some thought and found a function that i miss.



As I am working quite long hours I only have some times in between work to write reports and create albums but most of the time not in a straight line. I was thinking wether it could be possible that the report could be created and stored on globosapiens, pictures added, reedited and when finally satisfied put online for every member to see.



I think there is already this function with the photo albums.



Sometimes with alums problems are similar. You have to upload you pictures first before joining them in the album. As im still not a premium member I would have two months for uploading 20 Pictures before being able to create a nice album. Some pictures need the context of the album in order to make sense as other pictures need the corresponding report for it. It would therefore be good to be able to have only pictures online that you would like to show alone.



Perhaps this could be something to work at, what do other members think?



One solution for the report problem would be that there could be the possibility of downloading the report structure to our own computer. Create the report offline and simply cut and copy it into globosapiens.

Hi Martin,



I will stick my nose in and give you my thoughts – if it helps.



(1) Write your reports in a word processor format – have a template made with the GLOBO headings on your word processor and then write them up on the word processor.



(2) As you are about to file your GLOBO report – put as the title (you can change it later) *****UNDER CONSTRUCTION *****DO NOT VOTE YET*****



(3) Then proceed to cut and paste each section. Then download the reduced in size photos with their captions.



(4) Finally delete the UNDER CONSTRUCTION bit replacing it with the TITLE.



I have seen several GLOBO’s do this – credit to Fiery Fox who I first saw use the WORK IN PROGRESS – UNDER CONSTRUCTION IDEA after her reports were voted upon before completion by over-anxious GLOBO’s who couldn’t wait to rate.



I hope this helps.

Cheers!

Hi Brit



I think if all members would follow this routine or a similar, the quality of the postings would be much better.



The reports I did until now, were all straightforward with no reedition, straight from the heart. There may be a lot of spelling/typing mistakes, also the grammar isn't very high standard as english is only a second language to me.

So the word processing software with it's spelling and grammar correction tools can be of help there to improve.



I also like the part " *****under construction***** don't vote yet****** "

the problem with the edited reports not showing on the recent addition list was solved lately by andreas so no problems there ;-)



Thank you Britman for your help.



Are there other suggestions from fellow members?

Need some help/advise



I did post a new report with the new scheme Brit advised me so kindly. I did post the report and saved it.

Now after rechecking I found that the paragraphs are missing, ok now I reedit my report, but when I want to edit the general description part I got some problems. Globosapiens tells me that general description is limited to 1000 characters, but when writing your report you have 2000 characters to use...

So I can't change the General Description Text Body without loosing a lot of information.
