Id definitely like to be able to upload pictures.  Routinely I try to post something and it says file size is too big every time.   Even just a single photo.   Content wise, hopefully the page will go more in the direction of the type of posts you see over on the cattleforum as opposed to just post after post of shameless plugs and self promotion

just do a save as, lower the "quality" and you can upload it. screens are 72dpi, so if the zoom is where you want it, do a copy and save as and when prompted, choose a lower quality and it will look fine.

If you post from a phone just screen shot your own photo from photo library and it makes the file size small enough to post

The Open Range app is the most cumbersome database app I've ever dealt with. If you don't use the right # your post gets lost. We won't use it as a seller or a buyer.

Facebook was a lost cause as they regulated what post you saw. It has become a very unfriendly environment for small business. Only post you are assured of seeing is the paid advertisements.

facebook has replaced religion.

they perceive outsiders as pagans and treat them as such.

they are beyond change.

they are now a church.

I am not certain why Everything Show Cattle was taken down.  I believe that it had something to do with posting prices on cattle, but honestly...I don't know if I believe that.

Everything Show Cattle turned into a sewer of trash where the posts fell into one of a few categories:

Advertising plug for the next hair supplement

Product endorsement (disguised as a post) for the next hair supplement

A platform for belittling pretty much anyone not picturing a $10,000+ steer

A place for people to argue about pretty much anything

Everything Show Cattle was far too diverse of a group.  Technically, the term show cattle covers pretty much anything that gets a halter thrown on it and led through a show ring.  Dairy, bucket calves, mini herfs, lowlines, longhorns, and the list goes on and on.  It was just too big of a group.

The guy that started the group handed over Moderator duties in the last year.  I believe he just got sick of it.  It got too big, and became a pain in the ass.  I wouldn't be surprised if the owner of the group just knocked it in the head and took it down.

Making this site more mobile friendly would be helpful, but unless there is an influx of users the time and effort would probably not be resources well spent. Having an app that put it right in front of folks on their screen could help, because other wise it's googling it, dealing it small print, zooming in, zooming out, etc.

The ads are alone pretty invasive and it's hard to even find the link the forums on the website from a mobile device recently.

I've downloaded MeWe and it's not a habit to use it yet, but I'll give it a shot since it sounds like a lot of folks are going that way.

One way to bring Steerplanet back is to keep the politics and racist remarks off of it.   The same thing we complain about and suspect people of in the showing is what goes on with some of the posters on the forum.  Politics and emotions.  If you keep it about family and love of the past time it will be alright. Just use it to share wisdom and information.  Keep the BS away.
