Re: How do you wind your lines?

Mark, why do you straight wind in the middle of your routine?

Re: How do you wind your lines?

I used to figure 8; then when I was on iQuad they wanted them straight; but I've gone back to figure 8.

How do you wind your lines?

The forum has been quiet, so....

How do you wind your quad-lines?
I've seen folks use 2 winders, one for the left pair and one for the right pair.
Some folks wind them figure-8 style, some straight.

What do you do?

Re: I KNOW--the forum has changed!

My regular conduit to the forum wasn't working, Forum Runner. I figured it was just a temporary glitch, but it never came back. I see there was a lot more done... Yup! Until Forum Runner upgrades, you'll have to use Tapatalk. The new forum is "responsive" (in designer-speak) and works wel...

Re: I KNOW--the forum has changed!

I've increased the size of the fonts and line spacing on the forum index pages. And divided the rows a little differently. I think it's a little clearer and easier to read.
Turned more things red, and dropped some more ugly icons...

Let me know if there's anything else we need.

Re: I KNOW--the forum has changed!

Hey Mike, thanks for the update to the forum ... lots of work I know. Here's a few of thoughts: 1) I'm on a kite forum that does auto-resizing of photos ... since it's much easier for folks to post photos it seems like there are more posted! Which is a good thing. 2) Hosting your photos on another ...

Good info, thanks Jeepster. Good for you for asking Crayola first, and good for them for not giving you trouble (after all, it's free advertising for them anyway).

Max photos per post used to be six if I recall.

It's still 6 for now.

Re: I KNOW--the forum has changed!

The modifications I did to the old forum for the calendar aren't compatible with the upgraded forum software. I did add a link to the regular IKE Google calendar and Google maps to the bottom of the Quick Links menu. I don't have an answer to the email/link to post thing. I'm not sure there's much I...

I wouldn't worry too much about copyright. I've seen plenty of home made kites with various characters on them. Maybe if you start selling Dragonball kites for a profit...

thanks! Tons of css code to look through, but I'm getting there!
I also got rid of a lot of the icons. They're just busy looking and don't add much.
You'll get a red dot next to forums/topics you haven't read, but otherwise nothing.

Re: Have an idea, need a price quote...

If you want an appliquéd design you'll have to find someone who will do it for you on a sail you've purchased. If you want a painted design, buy an all white sail and find someone to paint it on. If you want a screen printed design, there are a couple brothers in Spain who do that. You'd have to des...
