|I found in the database a plant that needs a photo (which I have a good one of). I tried to upload it last night and it didn't 'take'. I was wondering if there is a guideline on the photos. Do they have to be under a certain file size? The one I tried I believe was about 2mb. Either my server speed is too slow or the file is too big. Sorry, I'm way out of date on how things work here. |
Also, is there a way to get notified of the raffles that a person can enter with their acorns?

|Did it never appear at all? Or did it appear but not yet arrive in the database entry? If the latter, then it would be awaiting approval from a moderator. But if it never did appear, then you might try resizing it a little bit before uploading. 2MB should be fine but if you resize it you can get it down to 400K or so and it'll upload right up.|

|Thanks Dave, I realized my computer was acting slow in general, so I went in and ran a malware scan, a registry scan, and a general scan with my anti virus program. That seemed to make a big difference and things are running more smoothly now. I got to quit looking at cute animal video clips on Facebook, that and if it ever says get a free sample of something, I'm sure it's rigged to give you malware or something worse. No more clicks on anything cute or free! Free is not so Free after all !|
I went to the database and found some plant listings with no photos and added mine. I hope they are nice additions for folks to see and who knows, maybe I'll earn enough acorns to grow an Oak tree, or at least a small twig ✿◠‿◠)
I don't know if I'll ever have enough to enter a raffle, but that would be fun. Is there a link to the raffle announcements?

|Also if you subscribe to the weekly email newsletter, the raffles are mentioned at the top of the newsletter when they are going on.|
