Thanks for info but i and many others are boycotting Facebook.

Is it not possible for someone to create a new Boatnerd photo gallery page forum where posters can register then login and post shipping photos and they appear automatically? If i knew how to do this i would certainly offer to help.


I am in no way speaking on behalf of boatnerd.com, I just have extensive experience with software and servers:

It IS possible, but there are several kinks with that setup. Assumingly, the delay in regards to the posts users make on this forum are to allow the moderator(s) to make sure that no content goes outside the purpose of this website: the Great Lakes shipping industry and the collective love for the beautiful beasts its churned out. Not saying it can't happen, but its not a snap of the fingers

@boatnerd admin: The last collection of server information to fix the SQL issue doesn't seem to be valid anymore. Update me @ thelostfaith@gmail.com and I'll reset the issue.

Loved seeing your pictures Garbear. I am waiting for my photos to be changed over to a CD so I can post some photos from late 70's early 80's as well! I should have asked you what cost your scanner was before I went into a camera store. I had 60 slides and they are charging me $2.00/ slide and $5.00 for the CD. Oh well learn from mistakes! Haha Will post over on Fans of Know Your Ships facebook page starting next week


Paid $65 for an Epson.

I joined Fans of Know Your Ships and do any photo posting over there. It's quick, easy and it's you that posts it, not sending in and waiting for someone else to post it for you down the road. I suggest if you miss seeing great photos go over and apply to join them on facebook


So did I. I'm able to post photos that don't need editing and are posted as soon as you hit "post." Somewhat of a new audience for my photos. Lots of great photographers on that page and there are links to other Great Lakes shipping and port groups.

Could the News Photo Gallery load with the latest page, instead of the 1st page from 2004?
Thanks, Roger


Which link are you accessing it from? ie from what page?


In case you're still following, @volunteer007, the link to the "Public Photo Gallery" is giving a horrid SQL error, not connecting to SQL server.

Link address: http://pics.boatnerd.com/

He's referring to the photo galleries page - when you click on "News Thumbs Gallery" - it loads the 2004 page. Perhaps the coding needs updating? I would also love to see the news photo page updated - it's been many weeks (closer to months) since we have seen current pictures in the news feed. Been a Boatnerd visitor since 2000. I love reading about the ships, but pictures are what make for an interesting website. Facebook has become my go to these days since this site no longer posts new pics. I am however enjoying the Garbear 70s, 80s, 90s photo collection.



I've personally never liked the way the pages have "next/previous" selection. It wouldn't be impossible to switch it to be aesthetic to the user, ie.: 1, 2, 3, 4...or even quite frankly have the date in which you're looking at.

@boatnerd admin/mod, if you're interested in having me pick around the server again get in touch.

The most recent News Photo Gallery appears to be July 17, 2017. Here is a link to that gallery:

http://www.boatnerd.com/news/newsthumbs . s_1908.htm

That gallery's "next gallery" link indicates it is the last gallery.

If you try to access the News Photo Gallery from the main Boatnerd page, the brown index in the upper left corner, click on photo gallerys, and then on news photo gallery, it takes you to the 2004 start, not the latest page.

I understand if current volunteers are too busy could possibly another person please step up and volunteer to update the News Photo Gallery on a regular basis? Thank you boatnerds very much in advance.

Photo Galleries, then News Thumb Galleries. It happens for me too. So I started looking at them from 2004 onwards and I'm amazed and saddened at how many from only 13 years ago are now gone.
