Subject description: Automated removing possible?
 

Hi.

Some people are that much in love with their desktops, so they feel the urgent need to post huge images of screenshots of them beloved desktops.

Is it possible to set some automated function to the forum of automatically removing posted images and/or links to images larger than 800 pixel width?

It is really annoying and incomfortable to be forced to scroll horizontally to read a posts content because of someone felt in love with his desktop!

Thanks

The forum won't show images larger than 800 pixels wide (or more than 256KB in total) that are uploaded to the forum as attachments, but I know of nothing I can do if a post links to a large image somewhere outside the forum. In that case, your browser will go to the URL and download the image. At least, that's how I understand it works.

Flash is correct. Sorry, but your best bet is to steer clear of such threads...

Ah, we all have our pet peeves Razz now, who left the cap off the freakin' toothpaste this time...? Wink

Ok, I see.

What about of some restricted admin rights for the owner of the thread, the one who did make the opening post:

- admin rights to be allowed to edit all postings whithin the topic, just to remove such links to huge images? Wink Laughing

This would be nice/fun... Razz

They already have that set up -- in that all of us can edit all of our own posts (AFAIK). If you ask them, they may resize their images for you... no promises!

Personally, while I do find such a thing annoying, it's only very, very rarely that it becomes enough of a PITA to pipe up about it.

For a very long time I was on another forum in addition to this one (I left it recently because the drama got to be a bit much) and it had a for sale / trade section -- sometimes the images in those threads would be Nimitz The Overblown Aircraft Carrier size, and those are a bit much even for me. That's really the only time I've actually posted *anywhere* about large images being large images.

Bottom line (for me at least), if you've got dialup, I understand and sympathize -- but IMO otherwise it's just personal preference and that's not really the problem, responsibility, or purview of the original poster. Personally, even if I were on dialup (I'm not anymore, thank heavens), I would probably choose to keep quiet about it. There are far larger and more important things to be ticked off about... besides, if you're on dialup, at this point big pics are the least of your worries Wink

No, I'm not suggesting to members editing their own postings. I'm asking for admin rights for the member that has opened the topic. Admin rights to the topic-opening-member to be able to edit all the posts of the topic to remove such links to huge images.

No, I'm not complaining about large images in size (kb). I'm complaining large images in geometry (pixels), since scrolling horizontally to be able to read the content of all postings of the topics page is really ...

... well, incomfortable, to use a friendly term!

It's really up to the poster to police his/her content, not the thread owner.

As for filesize vs size-on-the-monitor... the two tend very much to go hand in hand. Huge pics are huge by ANY metric, unless you're comparing different formats against each other...

Personally, since you've basically said you're not on dialup, this to me basically sounds like "I don't like looking at huge images therefore you should not post huge images". That's a little silly, at best, and it kinda makes you sound like a pushover. (I'm sure that's not your intent, I'm just saying how it gets received.)

Dude, this is the Internet. There's enough drama here as it is. Get up and go for a nice relaxing walk in a forest or on a nature trail somewhere, and breathe deeply while you're doing it. Your body will thank you, believe me. When you do finally get back to your computer, please remember that your problems are your problems and that you probably shouldn't spread them around to others.

This has NOTHING to do with:

"I don't like looking at huge images therefore you should not post huge images" and therefor it's NOT a little silly!

Read and recognize/notice: scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally scrolling horizontally Rolling Eyes

Can't really be that hard to understand!

If so, look here and try to read contents of pages postings.

Just to make sure: scrolling horizontally Rolling Eyes

Probably a screeny will do it for you - browser window is already set to full screen size.

OK, just to make a point: if I post an image ten pixels tall and forty thousand pixels wide, that is not a huge image? Wink

Irregardless, ultimately this is where we stand.

You have a problem. I don't see this as a problem, and as nobody else in the entire forum has even posted in this thread (with the sole exception of Flash), I think it's reasonable to say that you are quite likely the only one experiencing this as a problem.

Therefore, in asking people not to post images that are large enough to make you have to scroll -- and (indirectly, if not explicitly) asking that thread posters remove large images posted by others within the thread -- you are asking everyone else on this forum to make accommodations for you.

I'm not going out on a limb, I think, when I tell you that that's a rather preposterous thought indeed. We're not here for you. We're here for us. If you would rather be somewhere else, then there is a whole Internet out there waiting for you. But please do NOT expect us to go to extra lengths just because you find extra-wide images annoying. That really is asking too much.

YES!

That's a useful reply and a working solution made by a member being able to THINK!"

This works so far in Seamonkey over here!

Thank you very much! Smile

Agreed - a nuisance that crops up fairly often (have even accidentally caused it myself a time or two! Embarassed ). In Firefox or Palemoon (maybe Seamonkey too?) there's an addon available that allows easily re-sizing images with the mouse's scroll wheel - "Image Zoom". Works great.

But - ah well. Forum BB software ain't perfect. Browsers ain't perfect. People ain't perfect. Life ain't perfect... Shocked

Large images and extended URL's which stretch the screen width across what would normally be three or more lengths is unacceptable. Not everybody has a huge widescreen monitor. Reading a full 'page' length of separate posts perhaps three monitor widths, scrolling back and forth line-after-line is both time wasting and sickness inducing. Okay if you are young and with good eyesight and have a tolerance for movement but, remember this, when most of you have slipped past the forty years milepost - your eyes too will start to deteriorate. Add cataracts and/or glaucoma then reading anything becomes a serious trial - let alone having to scroll along each line simply because of the arrogance and inconsiderate action of others who cannot concede that a maximum image width is based on the benefit for all, not just their own egocentric aims.
Incidentally, there are several huge screen-captures lurking in areas of this forum. They may well be under the 250k limit, but the size (width) is not being deleted by the forum software.
