    Apparently I'm ,axed out at 49.9MB. Is there a way to increase this -? I have somewhere around 150 photos in my albums. I have noticed others have well over a thousand.

    Thanks,
    Wolf

    Increased storage is one of the perks of being a TrainBoard supporter

    OK - I just tried 5 times to support the site. It won't let me. Says I cannot use the same E-Mail address associated with a PayPal account. So, I went through Paypal. No good there ether.
    I got this:

    Trying to my debit card: (What in the world does this have to do with PayPal-?)-- I did try my YAHOO E-Mail which has nothing to do with my PayPal account.

    You cannot use an e-mail address or card number that belongs to an existing PayPal account. If you have a PayPal account, please log in. If you don't, please change the e-mail address or card number and try again.


    So- I tried PayPal and received this message:

    Sorry — your last action could not be completed

    If you were making a purchase or sending money, we recommend that you check both your PayPal account and your email for a transaction confirmation after 30 minutes.

    If you came to this page from another website, please return to that site (don't use your browser's Back button) and restart your activity.

    If you came from PayPal's website, click the PayPal logo in the upper-left corner to return to our home page and restart your activity. You might have to log in again.


    So.....???

    Have you been registered with PayPal before? Trying to decipher the message from PayPal which you referenced, it sounds as though you tried starting from scratch with them and their records show an existing account linked to that email address.

    I have been a registered PayPal user for many years. I received those messages using TrainBoard's links. I wanted to use my debit card (Not go through PayPal). That's when I received this message: "You cannot use an e-mail address or card number that belongs to an existing PayPal account."
    Since I wasn't going through PayPal, I have no idea why your system is linking my debit card to Paypal.

    So, after receiving that strange message, I tried going through PayPal - again through TB's link. Receiving this message (and associated verbiage): "Sorry — your last action could not be completed".

    I did not start from scratch. Again, I have a PayPal account and I am in good standing with them.

    Thanks,
    Wolf

    I believe (and I may be corrected on this at some point) that our system is set up to use PayPal as the sole means of processing these transactions.

    Good morning,

    OK, I just tried again (This time on my work machine). I went through TB's Paypal link. First, I tried the $5.00 a month option -- no good. Then I tried the once a year $24.00 option. Received this message (again) : Sorry — your last action could not be completed

    Regards,
    Wolf

    Thanks Wolf -- please give us time to get the folks who know this section of the board's code to look at what is happening. This is certainly not how we want it to work (n)

    One reason folks have many photos, is reducing their size.

    Please hang with us a few more days. Our site owner is out of town on some rather urgent family business. :(

    Wolf-

    Have you tried inquiring of the PayPal technical folks? They might have an idea or two.
