The Wildlife Center does marvelous work. Here are all their education animals, including the surrogates. None can be released, but they are now an important part of the staff: http://wildlifecenter.org/critter-corner/education-animals If you click on a photo, you get that animal's story. There are plenty of owls and hawks and a crow. I've met all of them except the surrogates (they need to be kept wild so they can do their jobs) and the opossums.
It is sad, but I'm afraid accurate, that the losing of cheezpeeps is likely to continue due to the attitude of the owners. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that sweet Victory LOL. That really made me feel good and is very nice of you. Thank you, too, for the congrats. That owl is a great horned owlet that was orphaned and being raised by a surrogate parent, a great horned owl who couldn't be released because he can't fly silently due to the injury that brought him to the Wildlife Center but is very good with young owls of his species and teaches them everything they need to know to live on their own. He raised five owlets this year, all of whom have been released.
Thankee Thankee from Collard! Collard has a lot of videos on facebook, I haven't figured out how to post them on here..not too tech smart. I you have facebook mine is Millie Elrod Hux, I think you would like the video of him watching the debate.
The Beta builder works in Firefox: http://cheezburger.com/8982871040 Now I have to figure out what in my Chrome is causing it not to function. I know others with Win 10 and Chrome can use it. I prefer Chrome of all the browsers I've worked with, but for now I will use Firefox to access ICHC. Thanks for getting me to do this. My snit is the real reason I didn't try another browser, but I know the new owners don't care whether I make LOLs or not or even if I leave entirely. It's so sad the way things went downhill once the folks who started the site sold it.
Thanks for the suggestion. I've thought about that and just never did it, but perhaps I will give Firefox a shot. I used to have many browsers because I was web master for my school and did a lot of work at home, so I needed them be be sure everything was appearing properly for everyone. I will let you know what happens. I'll probably not fool with it until tomorrow, but I appreciate your support and encouragement. Hugs back!
You're welcome. I don't understand why the new owners won't add a few things to the new builder. Many good suggestions have been made, but I suspect that they just don't care and pay no attention to what's said. I have used the basic builder for many captions, but there are times its placement limitations get in the way, and to make one's own title means saving the captioned photo and resubmitting to add the title. It's just not worth it to me to do all that just because they probably have all of two tech folks, who have no time to troubleshoot individual user's problems. It took longer than any three days for a response, and all it said was that they couldn't replicate the problem. All they knew about my system was the OS and the browser. The form doesn't even ask the version of those. I did supply that my Win 10 is Build 1511, but I bet they used Redstone. They didn't ask about any of my extensions. I've tried disabling some of them one at a time, but the builder still never worked. I could tell they were just blowing me off. I kept making LOLs for a while anyway, but one day something just snapped when I needed to go to an editor, and I quit. Whatever I put up now is not marked to be considered for FPs. At least Beta is an improvement over the basic builder for those who can use it. I still enjoy seeing LOLs by others.
Thanks for the congrats! I loved that photo and thought of Buffet right away--months ago. I can't believe they are still mining my old LOLs. I'm not making anymore for FP consideration and haven't been for weeks. They won't do a thing to fix the Beta builder that has not worked for me at all from day one, so no more captions. I'm tired of all the extra work I must do because Beta won't work. The new owners care even less about us than Ben and Emily did, and that's saying something.
