As jy iets beters kan op sit doen dit maar regitg M?ira baie van ons wou nog die leeus besigtig het al is dit 'n uur oud.


Hi Riwels

It often happens that the Highlight is replaced by mistake - but you should look at the Webcam forums thread and all the Lion pictures get saved there and you can look at them as long as you want to :D

btw the Lions close up are wonderful hey?

It would be so great if it was emphasised in BOLD writing, for viewers on the webcams, not to overwrite good sightings. There have been so many good sightings removed with arb sightings of webcams not working, etc. :wall:

Hi Beverley :yaya:

How lovely to see you on the forums :thumbs_up:

I think you may be talking about the highlights at the bottom of the screen? If so this is a common occurance, and is not always malicious. Here is a quote from a thread talking about this problem (you can find the topic here)

Christy wrote:
I inadvertently downloaded grass, twice in a matter of minutes, a couple of days ago. And yes, I did feel terrible about it. Fortunately warties and wildies appeared quite quickly and the situation was saved, much to my relief.

I clicked on "refresh" and a popup told me that the information would have to be resent and was this okay. I must admit to not thinking very carefully and clicked 'okay'. It was bad enough I did this once and I felt really bad when I did it the second time. :redface:



Hopefully this explains why this happens often (if I've made any sense at all)? :lol:

Sorry if i have stepped on toes here.... Hanna i have found that if you refresh the page it throws the last picture you checked on the highlights... so i did not intentionally spoil any pics. Its not in my make up to do that.
It just so happened that i put up a beautiful pic of two elephants not 30 mins ago and five mins later somebody replaced it with an empty dam.
Im not throwing my toys about it, its irritating yes, but i dont think it is ever malicious.
Thanks

Hi All
You don't neccesarily save what you see. :redface: :redface: Moving cameras mighty have moved to a different position . You might save the next 30 seconds frame and the animal may have moved/left.

Actually you never post the photo you see. You post the next one, so it's a hit and miss situation.

Lovely cammers... do not stress! It just sounds like a BIG misunderstanding, and it also sounds like it's all been sorted! :dance:

It's just so nice to have so many people taking the time to watch the cams and post pics - both on the forums AND the highlights - you guys rock!!! :thumbs_up:

Look forward to sharing lots more happy highlights with you all!!! :lol:

I can't retrieve the pics from the highlights at the bottom anymore.
Usually the pic would enlarge when you clicked on it, now the respective cameras are opened up.
Help please? :?

*edit* I just realized that you don't even get the current webcam picture, but an old one. When I tried to save the kudus at Addo that were submitted by Bushwillow, I got a cam pic from 11.30 am. :hmz:
