Dear LTA,

It really is great to have this forum, but I guess, there are a few things which could be improved...

1. Uploading pictures is a nightmare and it simply takes too much time - especially if you you want to add another picture to your post which you do not yet have in your album. Here definitely an easier (and faster) upload procedure must be found or become available from Lefora.

2. It should be possible to "save" a post "under construction". As my posts sometimes take a lot of time, because some research work is needed, I would like to be able to save what has been written so far and maybe continue the next day.

3. Will the individual topics become very long lines you have to scroll down? I think it would be convenient, if it - after reaching some length - will be divided into several pages.

4. It would be nice to see instantly on the first page in which forum there are new posts without having to read when the last message had been posted.

Maybe this helps to improve your forum...

Best regards,
Andreas

Hello Zeppelin Historian,
I can not really do anything about the uploading procedure. Trust me, when this forum was first created and before this terrible lefora upgrade, it was perfect. Everything was so easy and simple. If you wanted check the recent posts there was a place for that. Uploading pictures.. was just a tap away. Now every thing is complexed and hard to understand. I can do something about the posts and pages. I agree the "airships airships and more airships" thread is getting pretty long. (which is a good thing). If I have a very long post I usually make it a favorite until I can continue the post later. It should save  your message text.

It seems like the procedure for photographs has gotten rather convoluted. Is it possible to request a forum revert from Lefora? Anything to make the posting process easier. Perhaps a 'User Manual' thread pinned near the top of the board?

Threads need to be chronologically reversed from the way it is set up now!

It should be considered fixing the threads so that when you add a new post or a new response to a thread that the newest post is on top, and the oldest is on the bottom. It is opposite of that, now. If you want to see what’s new, a person has to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the thread, and  a lot of people are too impatient to take the time to do this. This should be an immediate priority fix! Jim.
