I would really like a cover image (image behind my avatar) but every photo I try to upload, I get an error message saying I need to upload a lower res image. Or "please upload an image less that 1500x X pixels" something like that

Any way to up the allowable pixels for a cover image?

I could be mistaken, but I believe that message is saying that your image needs to be two things:
  1. under 1500 pixels
  2. wider than it is taller
You should be able to crop any image using basic tools on your computer or even on a phone to meet those dimensions.

I haven't looked at the settings for that feature, but the reason I'm hesitant to increase the pixel limit is because a) it doesn't solve issue #2 above, and b) larger images increases the bandwith required to view your profile. Not a huge deal on laptops/desktops, but becomes more of an issue on mobile devices.

the viewable dimensions of the cover on your profile is 888x211, so 1500 pixels should be plenty.

anyways, not trying to argue with you of course, just trying to give you the best answer possible :)

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I hosted Lilith/@slaapkaamers for 3 nights in Nov 19.
She was an exemplary guest. Good w both conversing and alone time. Trustworthy, didnt steal anything and I felt very comfortable leaving her alone at my place. She didnt stink and not a junky.
Lilith is a legit traveller, she's a sweet, artistic chick w lots of good and interesting ideas to chat about. A pleasure to host. If she's in your neck of the woods you should help her out. 😉
I have a pretty good new squat in sfe but im leaving soon if anyone wants the keys lmk.
The peavine is gorgeous, I highly recommend that route.
Fucking winter snuck up this year
Damn It! I've been thinking and debating about applying for a position as an Amtrash locomotive engineer! They have openings for Salt Lake City, UT and St. Cloud, MN. I know I got to go through training but I'll be on call 24/7? There goes my sex life and night time weekend parties! Screw that, I'll play with my train set-No Pun=No Joke!
Made back up into Cincy for the weekend. Gonna chill with some homies before we head west for the winter..
