    Apparently that website is supposed to send me some kind of code via mobile phone. But of course, it has never arrived. I tried it three times ... :wah:
    Naturally, getting a text message from the other side of the Atlantic is usually next to impossible in this part of the world ...

    Sorry you are having trouble, TE. I don't remember getting sent a code from them, but it's been several years since I've had an imgur account so I prob just don't recall it...
    ...keep looking! There's got to be some repository out there for your papers somewhere.

    Hello guys,

    Can you see the next wallpaper for CARETAKER?

    I can see it. I also don't recall having any issues signing up for Imgur either.

    Thanks, both of you.


    I wrote a message to Imgur – and I was „shocked” when their answer did not start out with the sentence „Hello, I am a robot” (this seems to be the current frenzy these days whenever you try to contact customer service). But in fact, they wrote me a nice email saying that the issue with the code had been reported back by many of their (potential) users. It seems to be a bug and they are currently looking into it.

    I found a (Hungarian) website where an article detailed which websites were worth trying if we were looking for repositories for our photos. That made things a little difficult because it seemed that most of those websites only allowed you to upload your photos – not other images and most certainly not images that you had manipulated.

    However, I finally found this website:

    https://postimages.org

    This website looks pretty good. First, because you don’t need to register or open an account. You just go there and start using it. Second because it gives you a link to any picture you would like to upload on fora or message boards or on whatever other sites on the Internet. So if you want to upload something on TrekBBS, just go there, create a link for your picture and put that link between [​IMG][ img ] and [ / img ] (without the spaces) on this website and it works (at least it worked for me with the above CARETAKER wallpaper).

    Its only downside is that it does resize the picture even though you go for the option of not resizing it. However, my wallpapers are all 1360x768 (the resolution of my screen) and CARETAKER above got reduced to1280x723. That’s an acceptable compromise, right? In the meantime, let’s hope that Imgur will come up with a solution to their bug and that we can finally find a website where we can upload stuff without resizing.


    On a more positive note, it does seem that for the time being PINTEREST does not resize already existing images so you will get every wallpaper that has been made for any episodes that we have had so far in the good old 1360x768 format. Only new episodes and other new pictures will be reduced to 1280x723.

    Thanks, I'm glad you like it. Many more to come for CARETAKER.

    I've started working on ONE wallpapers. They are quite a challenge - will definitely require more energy than the LIFE LINE ones did ( was enjoying that one tremendously :luvlove:) - but so far so good. ONE is at least an episode that has a lot of usable quotations even if not too much good input material (=screenshots). VOY makers are back to their good old "let's shoot 90% of the episode in the dark" tactic and that makes things complicated for the wallpaper maker.

    I have Imgur for my pictures. I switched to Imgur when Photobucket started to act like idiots and ruined everything I had published.

    So far no problems for me with Imgur. But my pictures are smaller than the wallpapers published here so I don't know if larger pictures will be resized on Imgur or not.

    The whole crew plus two of my all time Star Trek favorite villains among the others: Henry Starling and The Clown!
    Excellent!

    Starling is excellent. I've already spotted him, too.

    Fortunately there are more people than the two of us who like this genius!

    This website gives the creator of the computer revolution the honor he deserve:

    That's great. You should submit it to the Voyager documentary folks!

    Thanks, everyone. I am glad that picture is so well-liked.

    Blushing ... But I have no such intentions. This is just a hobby, you know.

    And for today here is Janeway and Tuvok:

    I greatly appreciated their dynamic and think he would’ve been a vastly superior 1st to Chakotay.
