Research / Re: Advice from the National Parks Service?
« Last post by JodyJS on November 02, 2021, 12:51 PM »
Hi Bob,

I'm not connected in the way you suggest, but I have had lots of experience cold-emailing folks from park services, universities, and departments of conservation about a variety of things book-related, and they've all been super helpful. You might try that, using their contact page, if you can't find a name.

Good luck!

Research / Advice from the National Parks Service?
« Last post by bob-miller on November 02, 2021, 11:44 AM »
Hello,
Are there any SCBWI members with connections to the National Parks Service?  I'm hoping to find a ranger willing to give advice on a story that takes place at a national park, and/or a ranger who would review the story to ensure the integrity of the National Parks Service.
Thank you,
Bob Miller

Just to add, in response to Paula and others who may have had concerns about the Astra contest, Astra Publishing House is the company of which Astra Young Readers (formerly Boyds Mills Press), Calkins Creek, Wordsong, Kane Press (where I work), minedition, and Hippo Park make up the Astra BFYR children's division. We are legit.!

Blueboard History, Hints & Tips / Re: Image 404s - any techies here?

Sometimes the issue is betwixt your machine and the server. What is your DNS Server?

Many people use Google (8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4) or OpenDNS (208.67.222.222) or 1.1.1.1 , but if you are using a private DNS server sometimes the mappings get skewed.

On your Mac, choose Apple menu  > System Preferences, then click Network .

Select the service you use to connect to the internet (such as Ethernet) in the list at the left.

You should be able to see the IP address for the DNS server here.

Cache clearing did not work. I’m also seeing the issue in incognito mode on chrome as well as Safari on my iPhone.

The images look fine to me. I'm on a PC using Firefox.

Have you tried clearing your cache and restarting your laptop? I finally have a laptop that lets me keep a bazillion tabs open, but I had issues with broken links like in your screenshot before I switched to it. I'd have to close pretty much every tab down, clear out browser history, etc. to see images.

If that doesn't work, I'll see if anyone else has a suggestion.

 :goodluck

Not sure if anyone else has seen this, but most of the icons in the editor are loading as broken images. I remember seeing all of them (correctly) last week. Did someone accidentally delete a bunch of files off the server?

The URLs to the images give a 404 (file not found), so my environment is almost certainly irrelevant, but just in case, I'm on a Mac using Chrome (latest) with no extensions or ad blockers.
