    Donations fund the operation of the forum, if viewing the pics isn't worth $6 a year, don't bother.

    Guys,

    I think there is a misunderstanding going on here... .

    I'm guessing Raye's initial post was that he wanted to know how to the view the pictures. He found out that by being a contributor he would gain access. He then became a contributor (after 1 post!) and edited his initial post (in caps) to show his initial question had been answered. I see zero complaints in his posting about becoming a contributor.

    Welcome to the Creek, Raye!! People have gotten testy given what's gone on the in world the past year. It is really a great place to visit and participate.

    Brian I believe Raye was saying that he donated and then he was able to see the pictures. I think it should have been written as NEVER MIND, THE DONATION LET ME INSTANTLY VIEW PICS
    the key being the comma. Its crazy how punctuation can change the meaning so easily.

    Welcome to the Creek Raye! I had the same initial negative interpretation of your post that a few did. The moral of the story is that you shouldn't edit previous posts, or if you do, please leave the initial context intact.

    Thanks!
    Brian

    Or maybe use punctuation? In all seriousness, welcome!

    Raye, welcome to SMC!
    Please help support the Creek.

    When I was a kid I wanted to be older...this is not what I expected.

It's also possible that our vBulletin software can be slow on rare occasions but I don't have any means to acquire the transfer time.
