Re: Change the image hosting rules!

There are 4 drop downs which you pick once.

Then you use the uploader to put everything on.

On the next page, you can either add details, or just click process - no need to fill them all in.

Re: Change the image hosting rules!

Na... just appeared for me. That's quite handy. Shame about the quality issues though.

Guess i'll just have to live with it. Can a mod reopen my thread in the members motors, remove the offending images if you desire.

What quality issues? The uploaded images aren't changed.

There are 2 smaller versions created, but they will always link back to the original if you go through the gallery.

the rules is there for the users benefit, its them that end up having to look at threads with missing pics. It would make staffs job easier if we didn't have it, but that would be no use to the users

Re: Change the image hosting rules!

i agree with forum Hosting images
its irritating when a Guide or a thread thats is of huge relivance, where images are also important

And they've been done on photobucket - and they've moved the file and oh dearT
The thread is like a Bucket with a Hole in it

If you struggle getting to the gallery each time to upload photo's
Favorite your personal Gallery Section with an Upload Photo's button - done

Re: Change the image hosting rules!

obviously some people haven't been searching for something they want finally find the perfect picture they need and then there's a big photobucket thing saying its been moved or deleted

im confused about the quaility its exactly the same, and the two pictures you posted up are exactly the same

and also the gallery doesn't require you to use any BB code whatsoever you just have to copy the link in the box, the gallery is easy to use i recently uploaded about 100 photos and the only reason it took so long is coz my connection is rubbish and there huge high quality pictures

Re: Change the image hosting rules!

Sorry but you must have a terrible monitor, the two images are completely different on my screen. Seems ridiculous you can't see!

Fine, I understand why it's there - to help people when searching threads. BUT, why is the rule only active in one forum? And, that's not the tutorial forum?

Either way can someone please reopen my thread, it's been locked over 24 hours now and it's unnecessary. I have PMed someone to delete the incorrect images, also said it in this thread. You're happy enough to lock the thread and PM me, but you can't edit one post and unlock a thread - come on now.

im currently viewing the forum in 1080p i doubt its my monitor or graphics card/settings

have you uploaded all the images into your gallery? if yes then just be patient the mods are normal people with normal lives and have jobs and commitments etc

Re: Change the image hosting rules!

Right click both images and select properties/view image info. The first, hosted here is 54kb. The second, hosted externally, is 230kb. Now try telling me there isn't quality loss. JPG images are lossy format, so by their very nature, losing image size means losing quality.

If mods lead normal lives, how do they have the time to close threads, but not reopen them? Just two images, on page 2 of my thread, very insignificant, broke the rules. The first 5 I posted here, as I felt obliged to follow the rules at first. I merely want two images removed........ if, like on other forums, we could edit our own posts, I would do it myself, but no doubt it still wouldn't be reopened.

who is 'you'?
the report function there to generate reports for the mods
the section mod I assume you PM'd lives in Australia
so it will wait until that section to action as they see fit. Its not a priority
I suggest you review your attitude. if you think it will change opinion then you are sorely mistaken
it has got my attention though

Firstly the one on this site is a LINK to your original hosted to the one on the site. If you view the one in the Gallery itself instead of the thread then it will be the full quality image.

Wheras the one that is external hosted ISNT a link its a DIRECT copy. so obviously it will take more space.

Now for the few of us that use dial up or mobile broadband at home. i know which one i would rather load...

i can load most threads (expect pic heavy threads like "van with a differnce") Very quickly on my 3G modem.

If threads start having huge images such as your 230kb image over the 52kb file then im not going to enjoy viewing it.

On a standard monitor, then the differances so Very subtle.

I have no problems with using the sites image uploader.

I would rather see 53kb images on the forum over 230kb's, unless you are happy paying the increased download fees i'll be paying??
