    How time flies, this was a year ago?

    BTW, the anti spam measures are working. Any troubles registering?

    There seems to be a problem with COMCAST users, I get a lot of email errors from people registering with a comcast.net address. Looks like Comcast is blocking my ISP or my server.

    Users with comcast.net addresses please use a different email address, like one of the free web services (yahoo, gmail,...).
    If you have registered already and did NOT receive the confirmation email please email me with your account name and email and I can manually activate your account: hoss(at)historiclespauls(dot)com

    Thanks!

    There is a new feature if you are looking for a quick link to share one of your guitars on the web:

    Check out the "gallery link to share" under each item in "my guitars".

    They are probably too big, check the info text on the upload page.

    Guys, after the latest small updates to the site, do you have any suggestions to improve the HLPDB?

    Do you miss features?

    Thanks!

    There were questions where to put CC guitars.

    I would prefer "Signature Series", but they could also be uploaded in the category for their Burst year ("1959 Standard" for a Sandy or Goldie, for example).
    Just make sure you add "CC..." to the serial#.

    Thanks!

    Hi Bernard, I hope all is well with you!

    One suggestion I would have...and I don't know how easy this would be...would be the following...

    From a user's standpoint, when I log in to my account, and view a specific guitar of mine, I'd love to see at least thumbnails of each pic, rather than just links to the photos, as shown below:

    [​IMG]

    It would make it a lot easier to find specific photos I'm looking for, and to see whether I might want to delete and/or upgrade any of the photos. Not a big deal, but it would sure make the site a little more user friendly.

    Thanks for "listening", and thanks again for the great service you provide!

    The site got a security update today. If you have problems loging in or using other functions, please holler.

    Thank you!

    The server got a new operating system today and I had to update many packages and code, resulting in even better security of the HLPDB.

    This was the reason for the downtime today and if you still have problems, please message me.

    Thanks!

    I'm having problems registering. I tried a few weeks ago, and tried again this morning. Don't know why it not happening. Do you?

    Hi, are you not getting the confirmation email? Did you try a different email account?

    Please tell me the user name or the email address you used. Are you riding in on comcast (see above)?

    Wonderful! Welcome, hope you like the site.

    Guys, if you don't know what we are talking about: It's the answer in the anti-spam registration field "Reality Check".
