Help needed regarding photos here!
Permalink   


I just got this mail from Jochen Vollert, of the Tankograd Publishing house:

"Gentlemen

I have recently been forwarded the link to your site which I consider extremely well done!

However, I encountered a major difficulty: In your Forum I can read the text but I cannot open any jpg. Just the logo for the picture shows up, not the photo itself. May that be because I have a Mac rather than a PC?

I truly like to join you, but without any possibility of seeing what is being talked about, this would not make any sense, wouldn' t it?

Looking forward to a hopefully working trick to participate."


Anyone out there who has a clue? What is this?

(I will also contact Sparklit and hear what they say.)

Has Jochen registered as a member? If he hasn't registered, the pictures won't come up. I don't know if this applies to a Mac but I would think there shouldn't be any difference.

Hello Peter


I wish I knew, I no here in the states at least on my computer, I some times have the same problem, even if I am logged in, I usually restart my computer and it works it self out. It also could be his internet service, some services block out certain material, I no this usually pertains to porn, but my company service blocks out any thing dealing with war of violence as well, I have to by pass it all the time.


I do wish we could figure it out, He may be a very good asset to us, as well as possibly a good source for us possibly publishing books or at least pamphlets on our favorite subjects. Who Knows???


all the best


Tim R

So is the problem just .jpg's? I see no reason why Safari (default Mac browser) wouldn't work with .jpgs, but it should definately work with .gif's, and if not, and images aren't disabled by the browser, I can think of no reason why they would not display - least of all why this might be limited to this site.
A blocker seems unlikely, typically they would block the site, rather than just a few images, especially as the images don't contain any information about what they are, whilst the site containing them would.

It would seem most odd if someone who worked for an outfit called Tankograd used an ISP that blocked sites with a military content. I would suspect that Mark Hansen's explanation is the most likely.
