a few times already - i can see animal on cam, the date and hour are updated, but when i press to save as latest highlight, the pic appears empty - with no animals at all...

so first of all sorry for presenting empty pics...
but i have no idea why this is that happening...

Hi :D....

The server might refresh just as you hit submit....I always refresh just BEFORE hitting submit to make sure it is still the pic I want and not empty space....

Welcome, this is not done on purpose it is a mistake that happens to us all. It can happen if the cam updates at the same time as a forumite is saving the highlight and so the animals that they saw and are trying to save have moved off, best thing to do is refresh the cams again before hitting the save as highlight button :thumbs_up:

I have notice, and it happens frequently, that people save webcam pics before having a look what is already been saved as the latest sighting on a webcam - often an "empty" view saved over an animal sighting. Last week there was a great sighting on the Orpen cam - Buffalo moving up for a rhino - just as the animals moved away someone saved an "empty" webcam shot - over this amazing webcam update - Same thing happened tonight again - elephant herd at Orpen and an "empty" view was saved again as latest update. I want to ask please, if we all could please try not to save "empty" webcam shots? Does anyone agree with me? :doh:

Welcome to the forums Yolandi!

As you may see, this is something that keeps popping up, but in short:
The problem is twofold, slow connections, and lag on putting down highlights. When you push 'Save as highlight' it's not that photo that gets saved, but the next!
And if the connection you have is slow, well... Things can be gone already. :(

Best is to save the actual pic, and post it on the forums, then everyone can look through the days sightings. I for instance don't have the time to watch the cams, but happily browse the days topics.

I must admit it is sometimes annoying to see people just paste a glimpse of nothing for a sighting. Maybe it is to see their names at the bottom? :huh:

Hi Zaro,

This is an issue which keeps coming up again and again :?

I can assure you that no forumite is intentionally saving blank highlights, and it is accidentally done by refreshing the page or pressing the highlight button just as the picture changes.
I am guilty of such accidental acts, but it can sadly not be avoided.

A warm welcome to the forums!

As Tom said
Happens by accident
But dont worry
When you see the highlights of each month all the blanks are gone

First time ever that I managed to get on the highlight button instead of saving a pic...

and worse for wear - every time I go on 'refresh' for the whole of the webcams, it keeps putting my name up on the one cam I accidentially got on to the highlight button. 'scuse me! :redface:

No need to :redface:, LS !
It has happened to us all ! :)
The 'trick' seems to be
Quote:
to close your webcam page before you refresh and/or open a new webcam window and refresh there, which does not (at least with my browser) force the unwanted highlight when you refresh the page.

See Arks' post here.

Thanks, Arks - this is quite right - it is how form submission works.

If you refresh the page after submitting any form on the web, the browser will alert you that it is going to send the info again and that is where the users need to pay attention. This can happen even when shopping online, so do not ignore these alerts! Select the "Cancel" option of the alert.

Or instead of refreshing the page after submitting a highlight, rather click on "Go" in the address bar. That way it will reload the page, without taking prior activity into consideration when reloading the page.
