I accept that sometimes pictures and highlights get written over by the computer refreshing itself and accidents do happen, however..... there are some forum members that like to see their name on highlights regardless of the content that they are overwriting. There have been some wonderful pictures lately and each time two or three spoil it. PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE ! Do we need "A WALL OF SHAME" for persistent offenders

This has been discussed before and It does happen that someone has no intention of just putting their name on a picture But the other day for example my SO saw a leopard arrive at the waterhole and he waited for the picute to change and it was still there so he clicked AND somehow he missed it and that happens often He never would intentionally over post .. and I am sure thats what happens most of the time

The best is to post the pics you like. That way they get saved. :D

CM I agree with you but I too have been guilty but only when I have clicked on the highlight and a picture different to that which I clicked on appears for whatever reason. Maybe I waited too long before clicking.

Hi, the key to it is to look at the time at the bottom of the webcam highlight screen and ensure it matches with the time on your computer. Satara sometimes takes longer to catch up. I did say that accidents do happen and that's acceptable and unavoidable but its the same names that overwrite time and time again..

Hi and thank you for your participation @posting highlights, Charliemouse . :D

I don't think anyone like seeing their name under a not decent picture. Perhaps some of us are a little over eager at highlighting, but surely not overwriting just for the sake of seeing there names on the forum ? Highlights get replaced all the time and with that, the names under them too.

I am going to merge the posts here, to Highlight Troubles :thumbs_up:

Happy camming to you ALL :gflower:

Hi,

Thanks for the discussion and replies, I didn't mean to shout by the way... sorry.

This is such a wonderful site, fortunately I have the opportunity to watch regularly at the moment as I've been in hospital and I definitely have seen patterns emerging with postings, I don't think its fair to name individuals. I agree tthat the majority of people are genuine and we all make mistakes and all are too keen sometimes and have the best intentions and of course there is the time delay, there are some truly wonderful pics and I do have a file with saved pictures. I just felt that I needed to "air my concerns", maybe it will make the one or two that aren't as considerate as the rest of us, take time to consider others. If this has been brought up before then I guess I'm not the only one that notices ........ Food for thought.

Sorry about you being in hospital, but it must have been wonderful spending this time watching the cams, Charliemouse 8)

Thanks for airing your concerns. I am now merging this topic.

I think some of the people posting the highlights at the bottom of the page, don't always read the forum.

With this not realizing that there is saved versions of the days highlights.

Gee wiz, I fail to understand why this is a problem at all. So, A has posted something and B posts something of 'lesser importance' Someone highlights a picture of a lion and then someone highlights a jackal. For how long do we have to stare at a lion on a webcam highlight??? Post it to the highlights of the day and move on, for Pete's sake!!! Over the past years I have seen a lot of people that are not active on the rest of what the forum has to offer, but boy o boy, if you mess around with the webcam pictures, they come screaming and shouting.

This is the image I was trying to post as 'latest hightlight' and got the "Out of order" sign instead. :redface: :cry: Apologies.
