Hi Activity2004, cure, and everyone,

It was a pleasure to help whilst you were on your mini vacation (Activity), but I didn't need to do very much at all, because you have a great team, and Cure and the others were amazing at keeping things running and I think you all work really well together.

I hope you enjoyed your holiday, and that you settle back into your normal routine again.

I have read this thread through, and think you had a great meeting.

Wishing you all the best.

Zest :-)

The pictures would have to be acceptable. It is not that easy to put the pictures into the PM section, but you can try for the comments.

alternatively pics can be uploaded to some free site and link can be shared....

That's right. But, they also have to be not inappropriate.

We don't know for sure if the pictures will actually work, but test the idea.

Reply

Luckysugar, do you have any questions?

Reply

Yes, I am not quite sure what are you talking about the picture. I've seen some people uploading some pictures with their posts like their own photos or some plants.

Reply

I'm talking about trying to post pictures inside the comments.

Reply

We would have to try and get in touch with HU and have them put a button for picture insert.

Hope that would work. That would help in case someone needs to attach any pictures that appropriate and relevant with their comments.

Everyone can let us know what you wanted posted on the Facebook page and it can be done.

Nah...nothing special...

You're welcome! We need a few days notice if you or the rest of the members want to have us post something for you. This gives us time to figure out how much time it will take before we all head to bed each night.

Reply

Do you mean we are unable to post anything on Facebook page by ourselves?

Reply

You can post comments.

Reply

How come we are allowed to comment only?

Reply

Due to how the page is set up, there is the Administrators who are allowed to post postings. Others can comment and like postings/comments-- like on HU.
