Question about posting photos

Having joined this forum recently I am enjoying it a great deal.  There seems to be a lot of very friendly people on it, and I’m particularly impressed with the number of Indonesians who contribute.  Many other expat forums don’t seem to encourage local participation, and that’s a shame as the locals can be a treasure trove of good tips and information for expats.   

I’ve recently tried to post two different photos of a Balinese cremation ceremony and they were both rejected.  Neither included any people who could be recognized, so I am wondering why these photos have been rejected? 

Being married to a Balinese and raising our three sons with her, we participate in many local ceremonies and festivals.  I won’t say that I’ve “gone native” but my idea was to post photos which show a side of life on Bali that a lot of expats miss out on for one reason or another.  Wouldn’t these photos be of more interest than yet another post card shot of Pura Tana Lot, a sunset or a beach?

I make a little tutorial for our nice Brazil animator chappy.
If you speak to him really nicely, he may post them on here as I can't find them.

Found them.

Hi Pak Fred,

I may have misled you, (ma'af) as what I was referring to is posting photos on the Bali photos section of this web site:

I already have five photos up on that, but my cremation photos were rejected for some reason.

But hey, if I want to post a photo within a posting, I know how to do it, many thanks to you!


I had the same issue. I did get some on this morning though. I think the server was down as far as down loading the pic's.

I rather like that one with the woman and the water bottle.
Try reposting and see what happens.

Unfortunately, post card pics are the only kind that will get accepted.
