PostSubject: size of pics; forum loading issues   Wed Feb 29, 2012 11:28 am

Hi,

Not sure if this was already said somewhere, but I think we need to put in a maximum size of pics allowed on the forum to avoid blowing up the topics.

Yes, Serp, I'm looking at you. Love your pic underneath your posts but it causes me to get a horizontal scrollbar when that wasn't the case before.

Unlike regular member Ippa, who kept in mind when posting her lovely pic that some might not use this forum on a 17" screen and have a tiny, 10" instead.

I think we also need to think about what we allow in terms of pics and so on, since with more and more mobile phone internet usage, pics can slow the connection too much.

I love a pic and I watch this forum on broadband, so it's not an issue to me, but if we get more members and some experience issues with loading the forum, please post it here in this topic so we become aware of it and can undertake appropriate actions.

We'd also like to hear from members who want to keep it as is and have no issues. We don't want one nagger (why are you all looking at innocent moi?) to be the reason things change for everyone.

Nah, it's not just you, Miya.

I think anything that's big (pictures or a huge amount of quotes instead of a one-liner) can interfere with the topics, especially if you go for topics where something needs to be followed (like a role-playing game).

Say you start a story in "continue the fic", and another starts posting and another, then you have to read a story with interruptions by either long quotes or big pictures.

I especially think pictures that move rapidly (recalls Allie's dancing Voldemort and co) are something that should be banned for eternity. XDDD


But something small and unobtrusive ... well, that doesn't bother me too much.

Posting now to check if it's just Serpie being nuts or if the avatar really doesn't work.

It's official. Serpie is nuts.

It loads for me, Serpie. I went to avatar, uploaded the file from my computer and voila! *points to avatar*

If you can't get it uploaded still and want me to do it for you, I can if you give me your login and password. You can change it after I got your avatar done.
