    When re-quoting posts with multiple photos......

    When you are quoting another BM's posts that include multiple photos...

    Unless it's absolutely necessary, please try not to include ALL their photos in your quote!!! If it is just one photo it is fine... but some people re-quote 10 photos in a row!

    Now think about it. When someone comes to view that page, it takes an age to load! Not everyone will have high bandwidth... and if the page has to load photos that have been repeated over and over... well, sometimes the browser will just give up...

    Also, on smartphones, it can be a pain trying to view a page when it takes ages to load because so many photos have been re-quoted...

    thank you..

    Rant over...

    Edit... For ways of deleting the photos part of the quote, see... How to remove images from quotes...

    If that's an issue I'll happily change it.

    Is it a real issue?

    Ya bugger... 555

    ^But seriously, it has crossed my mind it could cause problems, so am quite happy to change it to a "still" image if anyone finds it slows their page loading...

    If you change it, I think a one month ban would be an appropriate punishment, unless you adopt 2 bums avatar.

    I'm guessing that it would have to have an affect on someone with a slow connection if you have made several posts on that thread.... The only time I have an issue is with the threads with pictures when I'm using 3g on my phone..

    There you go... a still image of Rosa. If there are complaints about her inactivity, I may have to re-ignite her.... and then ban Nomad for being cheeky... 555

    Hey DP you mentioned the rant but did not give a solution or how to.

    To remove pictures from quote reply just delete from (Image) to (/Image) and they should be gone.

    If there is an easier way, prey tell.

    Rosa moving scared me ... like those cute girls in the horror movies that are really psycho slasher chicks ... but now she looks like she has a twitch in her left eye. I vote for the moving Rosa as well ... being scared is always preferable to feeling pity. What did get in her eye, anyways??

    I think some people just quote the whole thread, pics and all, because they can then brag they have made a few really big posts!! 55555

    DP I think it is very relavant for BM's that are on set plans with a download/upload limit. (Like me)
    I hate how you see a new post made on a thread and you click to see it then all the photo's reload and you sit there thinking.."I've already seen them 4 times now, there goes my usage".

    Do pictures upload quicker if they are not hosted?


    One thing I dont like is having to click on the little pics to make them big enough for my old eyes to see, 800 x 600 is perfect size picture for me to see, I dont have any problem looking at pictures with my phone, they seem to upload very quick, even on some of Rivo's threads were he posts many pictures 555

    All depends on actual file size/compression... I reduce all my pics to ~ 500kb and store on Picasa. I then choose which size to post. I hate the clickable thumbnails also but is best for ppl who DO NOT compress photos and post their entire album, good pics and duds.



    How fast does the above photo load? Should be almost instantaneous for most viewers.
