The Definitive Guide to Posting From an iDevice Your posts can be beautiful too!

-- iPad, iTouch, or iPhone
-- Camera Connection Kit (http://www.amazon.co.../ref=pd_sim_e_1)
-- Photobucket for iPad, or iTouch/iPhone
-- Wifi Connection
Okay, if your device doesn't have a built in camera, or you want high quality images, you'll need one of these doodads. Basically, it's a card reader that attaches to the 32 pin connecter on the bottom of apple devices.($3.51 from Amazon)
Download your Photobucket app, for whatever device you're using. I use an iPad, so I download the iPad version.
(screenshots are sideways, sorry about that)
Connect your card reader, and your camera to said card reader.
Open Apples preinstalled Photos app. (give it a second to load)
If you see photos with green checkmarks, that means that it has been already imported. Tap the photos you want to be imported, and they will be checked blue.
Now click import. A window will drop down, giving you two options. Import all or just selected. Choose selected (unless you want all of your photos imported)
Let it finish. When it's done, it will ask you wether or not you want to keep the imported photos. I chose yes. Now go open your photo bucket app.
You will be sent to the homepage. Click my albums, on the bottom of the screen.
Now click that arrow at the top of the screen.
Then just select the photos you want to upload, and wait for it to finish.
Done! Now all you have to do is add it to your post. Start by clicking on the photo you want.
Now click the chain link at the top.
NerfHaven uses IMG code, so click on that option. It will say it is copied to you clipboard.
Now just click paste when doing your writeup, and boom. You have pictures.
(This entire writeup was done on my iPad)
Comments? Questions? Flames?

There is a way... I guess I probabaly should have done that. I will fix that soon.

So you wrote a tutorial on how to properly post photos from a phone, but you're telling us you'll fix your shitty sideways images later? Saying you'll fix it later is the exact problem I have with people posting from their phone. You seem to be trying so hard to post a helpful thread that will get pinned, but you just aren't pulling it off. I don't know what part of NJ you're from, but there was an actual nerf war today in your state. You could have gone to that, and Nerfed. That's why we're all here, right? To nerf? Not to talk about nerfing, or to talk about how to use a nerf forum, or to seek the approval of other nerfers on the internet. So instead of expending all this effort on trying to be helpful to the forums, you could maybe get your ass to an actual war? Or make some darts, or mod some blasters, or try to talk some of your friends into nerfing and having a backyard war or something. Anything really. And then, if you do something really awesome, you could post about that. That would be cool.

How exactly do you do you engage in a nerf war from behind a computer screen??? Do you have your buddies with all of their computers with you in a room with nerfhaven pulled up & blasters in hand? Last time I checked the internet was created for sharing information & ideas which is what this poster was trying to do.

Now you're just making my point for me.
Wow, hey, you're off to a great start there buddy. Code of Conduct. Second rule, right there at the top. (Although the first rule certainly applies too.)
Nobody knows better than you, eh, bob? Zing!
Okay, we're done here.
