Problems Posting Pictures?

A common error message seen is:  Your submission could not be processed because the token has expired. The error message uses token as a limit meaning the size limit was exceeded. We don’t have any little tokens we pass out to members, just a poorly worded error message written deep inside the forum software.

The most common trouble posting picture thumbnails is the size of the picture. The website has a 2MB picture size limit. Most modern digital cameras produce picture file sizes in excess of 2MB and need to be sized down. Most software applications in use to handle your pictures on your PC will have the capability to reduce the size of the photo to a reasonable size. I would suggest a pixel width of 900 is plenty for a picture and a downsized picture will load faster. Remember that computer monitors can handle only so many pixels and the new style camera outputs are overkill for posting on the web. If you need help downsizing, attach the file to a post on the web help forum (faster) or send the file to the help desk at the email address at the bottom of this page (random turnaround time).

If you wish to post a full size picture(s) in your post, say if it’s a extended fishing report, rod building or reel cleaning tutorial etc., the pictures must be hosted at a hosting site such as See this post for a picture hosting posting tutorial.

  • On January 1st, 2009 we launched a new website; this was a major format change for us and unfortunately requires that everyone re-registers for the website.

I registered, but cannot post or see the fishing reports or place an ad in the Classifieds.

  • We have gone to a true subscription based system.  We are asking for a minimal $25 a year fee to post, view fishing reports and listen to the Coastside Radio Network.

I have registered for the new site, how do I upgrade or pay for my membership?

I want to sign up as a full privileged Coastside Member, but don’t have a credit card.

  • Unfortunately we no longer process subscriptions via check.
