Dear authors!

We've got a glitchy document that broke down the upload engine. We're working on it.
Thanks for your patience!

Hi and happy Easter for everybody,
I have a problem with uploading. I have been trying to upload different worksheets but I can't. I have just realised that the problem is that the size of my worksheets is too large. For the first time I recognize I have paid attention to the size of the file to be upload. Is this something new? I ask about it because I have checked the size of many of my already uploaded worksheets and most of them are even larger than those I am trying to upload now.

Hi,

What size are you trying yo upload? For docs, the limit is 2 MB, for ppt, it's 25 MB.

As I've never had any problem uploading, I hadn't paid attention to the size of my ws. Some of them have large pictures and that's why I suppose they are larger than 2MB. The message "The file is too large" has appeared recently so I've been compressing images for my last three worksheets with pictures.

OK, I see now. Actually, we've always had this limit, but for a while it was buggy. Recently we fixed it. Having such a limit in place helps us save money. So thanks for compressing your images.

Help again and sorry,

I asked this just a few weeks ago, got a good answer but can't find it. How to correct a mistake on a ws and re-submit? I am dumb!
While I'm here, how do you start a new topic? I can see the 'start a new topic' box; the title box appears, but no box to put the message in. I am weak with ICT, please be kind! Sorry to hijack this post.

I know I'm not the only uploader who don't like to see the front page taken by the same author. I'd limit the uploading number. But this is just my opinion.

I agree with you. There should be a limit of 3 per day.

reply to Gotinha's post #20
I agree with you all, I thinks a maximum of three per day would be nice , as is the case on another site.I don't mean to pry ,but when it comes 7 or 8 (today) or even more sometimes , it seems quite unfair to the other authors. But that's the humble oipnion from a girl on holidays!! hugs Sylvie!:)

reply to tantana's post #23
It's bad manners, isn't it, for one member to hog the front page? Just imagine if you are an author who has put some time into your contribution and it is immediately pushed off the front page. Of course, this may happen anyway, if there are a lot of uploads. And people can obviously look through back pages... On top of this there is the 'most viewed weekly' section. However, it is inconsiderate of members to do this! If any of 'the hoggers' is reading this - please, limit your uploads to 2 or 3 at a time!

Hi there,

I was wondering if it's alright to use one of these printouts for a photo in a blog post I'm writing? I would give credit to the author as well as ISL Collective. I just want to make sure these have Creative Commons licenses and it's okay to use elsewhere. I sent a message to the creator of the page but she has not answered me yet.

Thanks for your help!

I completely agree with Lynne. Perhaps Kisdobos could create a standard letter which could be sent to the email box of those who 'hog' the front page (there seems to have been an exponential increase of this phenomena recently), type:" It is general practice on islcollectives, as on many other ESL sites, to upload no more than 3 worksheets per day, in order to give the works of all authors as much visibility as is possible. We would like to take the occasion to thank you for the hard work and effort that you put into the worksheets you upload, and are sure that you will comply with standard practice in future.

Hi guys!

In the past week I've interviewed a bunch of other Honorary Authors to see how they feel about this: should we limit the number of uploads after 6 years of no change in our upload policy? It seems it is a divisive issue, since a lot of authors don't have any problem with others uploading more than 3 worksheets at a time.

Therefore, I suggest we try to reach some common ground in this question. Maybe we should eliminate the Random worksheets section, and instead display 12 extra worksheets in the Newest resources section? This would provide longer visibility in the front page.

How does this sound?

Also, we are in the middle of redesigning the site to look better on tablets and mobile. If there is anything you would like us to change, now is the time. For example, maybe putting a toplist of most active authors in the current month on the main page? Or anything else?

Bless up,
Peter

Don't you think that 24 worksheets a day is too many for an uploader? Well, perhaps he hasn't finished "sharing" yet...

What really annoys me is that someone who hogged the front page yesterday with 24 worksheets is doing the same today but with duplicated and copyrighted materials. I have already red-flagged them. He is not new here although he hadn't uploaded before. This shoudn't happen.

it's important to write at least 160 characters because of the google search optimalisation.

A tricky Windows upgrade on our servers caused a major disruption in the upload process 3 or 4 days ago and this is how long it took to fix it. Can everyone see their uploads with the corresponding previews among the new worksheets? Sorry about the inconvenience.

The power of a 'thank you' is huge! I was wondering whether to bother making new wss as I rarely use them myself. But when I logged on yesterday, there was a message for me - one of my wss had been a homework exercise for a group of kids before a visit to a science museum. Then today, someone found one of my wss, 'just what she had been looking for'. And recently, a teacher used one of my short plays with her group and let me know how much they had enjoyed it. Yes, my little hobby is soooooooo worthwhile and I am grateful to the members who let authors know when they have found contributions useful. It's nice!

Hi everybody!
I've just corrected a mistake in one of my worksheets thanks to the mail of a downloader. It's one of the worksheets on the front page: "food and drinks". After so many downloads this summer, this is the first time somebody writes me about the mistake. I really appreciate his help :)
BTW: I wish you all a nice new school year and I agree with MrsFrobisher about the importance of receiving feedback. Thank you all for your comments and recommendations :))

How do I reload a worksheet? I changed some details in a worksheet and wanted to reload it. It showed "preview under generation". I was trying for hours yesterday and also today. I tried to remove the worksheet and reload it again. It didn't work - it always shows "preview under generation" or a blank page. Thank you.
