It seems that after a few mods posted what I thought were pretty reasonable requests for acceptance and tolerance, the negative response (PREsponse) died down.

Hopefully everyone everywhere can get over themselves and their drama to just talk online about The Beach Boys, music, or whatever else is permissible on each board—and not obsess or bitch (whether initially justified or not)—about other boards and members.

Solid advice indeed.

The Beach Boys legacy is still being mortared to this day...it has a solid and unbreakable foundation of incredible songs that tower above most bands, yet some bricks are more brittle and ugly than others (even some bricks put down more recently)...thus is the nature of any entity that continues to exist. You are not defined solely by your good achievements in life, you're also defined by those unpleasant moments too. This law of life, thankfully, helps keep us all in check.

A poster over at the r/thebeachboys on reddit mentioned that they couldn't get approved here and have tried signing up twice. If you see the username fastballooninghead pop up, they seem to be a  decent poster. I lurked through their post history on reddit and didn't see any arguments or trolling.  Cheesy

Hello, is there a mobile friendly way to access/read this site? Text doesn't wrap to the typical mobile width, so to read a whole line of text one has to be zoomed out that squinting doesn't even help. Any tips?
thanks

I hope this is the right place to ask for help.  If you can offer advice, please send instructions via the private message service.

Question:   How do I post a photo from Windows 10 - "photos"?  I have a few photos from my camera that have been put into files in the photo sections of MSWindows 10.  Is it possible to get them posted onto the Smileysmile message board? I know how to post photos from the Internet using the image web address button, but how do you post images from the Windows 10 photo section?  Someone suggested a third-party interface. Is there any other way to post -- more direct.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Stephen, unfortunately there is no way to upload images directly from a user's computer files or hard drive onto the board. Some message board platforms do allow it, but the best way to do it in general is to get an online photo host site on which to upload and store your images.

I used to use Photobucket but they changed to a pay service with ridiculous monthly fees and restrictions on "hotlinking" image URL's to message boards or blogs. This is why many of my previous posts containing photos now have no photos.

I switched to and would recommend you try Imgur, here: https://imgur.com/

They are a free photo hosting site with an easy to use platform. Sign up, get the password, and you can start uploading any images from your computer's files or even direct from a phone or camera's storage. When you upload an image, you will see a menu that has a "direct link" option, which you can then copy and paste that URL here or elsewhere as you would with any other image found online. And you can set privacy settings and accessibility so your files being hosted can be protected.

Until or unless Imgur decides to start changing and charging crazy fees as other sites had done, I'd recommend giving them a try. They're the best hosting site I found, and have had no issues...plus, they allow remote direct linking which is what I think you're looking for.

As I mentioned in the Beach Boys general discussion channel, Fred Vail has said that crowdfunding to give him directly the much needed support to release the Fred Vail album commercially. I have agreed to kickstart things a little, and he was happy to hear that. Would one of the moderators here, who is reliable be willing to quite simply create a GoFundMe account (which is completely free, by the way) so that we could all start donating to it? We already have an anonymous donor who's willing to put in £250, and some more.

Ideally, it would be Billy, as he's cool. So I guess I should address you Billy directly -- are you happy to make this account quickly and share the link with us?  If not, I'll take it upon myself to raise after in the start of April.
