I'm happy you kept Mocha too. :biggrin: Keeping her successfully as you're doing is a great introduction to reptiles.

Mocha "looks" bigger now, Birby! :) I'm not sure. Please post an August pic and a current pic side-by-side so we can see how she's grown.

I'm not experienced in uploading videos.

Have you uploaded your video to some free site like Imgur, YouTube, or maybe Photobucket first? That will give you a URL to insert into the ladder icon 15 icons in from the left in the line up above. Here are some instructions that may help.

Posting Photos/Videos...inline or attached
Click: vBulletin FAQ
  • To insert a video find 3 lines of choices at the top where you make a post. On the second line, 15 icons in from the left, you'll see the video icon. It looks like a ladder. Click this video icon & paste your video URL right there. Your video and arrow like you may have noticed here will be displayed, not just a link.
  • To insert a photo use the "image" icon next to the "ladder" icon.
    • Click: Go Advanced under the reply box
    • Then click: Manage Attachments
    • First upload your images or video to a free Imgur or YouTube account.
    • Then use that jpeg or URL to upload your image or video onto Geckos Unlimited.
    • Click "insert image url" OR "insert video url"
    • Then copy & paste
Imgur, YouTube, and maybe PhotoBucket (again) now offer free online sites for sharing photos and maybe videos.

In the first screenshot you'll see Hilde's red arrow pointing to the photo icon. The ladder icon is the next icon to the right. Use that.

Photobucket does not allow sharing anymore.

That's what I thought. Then I saw PhotoBucket pics on GU that seemed to show up once again when, for a while, those same PhotoBucket photos had disappeared.

Maybe those keepers are now paying for access. I don't know.

i hope i did the video right. how do i put pictures side by side right next to each other?

Just attach those photos one-by-one for comparison: one from August and one current. Something for size reference helps.

If both photos are on separate lines, place the cursor in front of the second photo and press the backspace button on your computer. That puts the second photo on the same line as the first. Add a space between the photos.

PS: How much do you think Mocha's grown?

It has been a very long time now! 3 years I think? Mocha is still going at it but I never do see her much and shes hard to take pictures of. One time while I was in bed and her lamp was on, I saw movement and heard a thwap as she fell from the lid/a higher leaf onto a lower leaf. She stayed there for a few seconds before slinking away. I think she got embarrassed haha.

I hope everything is okay with you. It has been a long time since we last talked and covid has been scary.

Hi Birby ~

You've done quite well with Mocha! :cheer: Thanks for stopping by GU to say hello. :banana: I really appreciate it.

Thanks for asking, Birby! I'm doing OK -- just aging a bit and all. :| Covid is extremely scary. At least I haven't caught it. 4 mourning geckos have hatched since early May 2020!!! Little stops them. :coverlaugh:

Here's my favorite face mask.

No one in my family got it but my bf and his family did. One of his friends died. But everyone else is okay.

The mourning geckos are just doing what they do best! I love your mask. Mine is a specialty care mask it was a gift from my bf's mom. She's very nice. She's been working as a nurse so she has been very stressed out.

School is completely online for me. I'm taking calculus, chemistry, biology and geology. I never do well with chem but I'm really enjoying geology.

I hope that you and all your pets will remain safe. You're my favorite person on here and the reason why I came back. I thought you might be wondering about Mocha cause you helped me out with supplies and taking care of her.

I've appreciated your messages, Birby! Thanks so much! I have been wondering about you and Mocha off and on.

My 28 geckos are all doing good. Thanks for wishing them well.

I'm sorry that one of your bf's friends passed away from covid. That is especially tragic when one is young. I hope that neither your bf nor his family members have had serious covid consequences.

You've got a solid load of classes! Best wishes for your success! I don't know how I would have liked online classes. Fortunately these restrictions did not happen when I was in college.

My 5 cloth masks (all reversible) were made by Seri's mom. Seri's a gecko friend I met October 2019 at the Tinley Park NARBC show near Chicago. I had plans to return this October, but the show was cancelled due to covid. The highest tech mask I've encountered was at my dentist's office 2 weeks ago. The dentist's assistant was outfitted with a sealed hood that had a knit closure at the neckline. This assistant carried a small canister of oxygen in order to breathe.
