Please force maximum width on uploaded pictures

Postby Guest » Wed Jul 01, 2009 1:50 am

If the forum software can be configured to force a maximum width on displayed pictures within a thread, I wish the administrators would do it.

Having to scroll laterally because a thread contains a graphic that exceeds the normal width of the forum is a pain in the arse.

Shouldn't have to scroll when you're at full screen.

If you want to avoid scrolling with IE8, go from 100% to 75%.

That really does a number when I go to other websites.

For example, after resizing the display here at this site, I just went to play some pool at Pogo.com and my chat window ended up the wrong size and unusable. It took a couple of hit-and-miss resizings and reloadings of the window before it ended up being correct.

Even without that particular problem, it's still a hassle having to resize the screen at other sites, once I change it here.

Long story short, resizing the display just for this site is not a solution.

I don't see what the problem is with forcing a maximum width on graphics, other than having some befuddled crybabies complain that their 5000x10000 bmp ended up too small.

I posted the screenie he is complaining about.

Whenever I post a screenie, I ALWAYS ensure it fits in the screen because I too hate scrolling.

There are 2 screen shots, joined together to make a point.

I originally planned to have them one on top of the other but the point was not so obvious. So I broke my own rule and placed them side by side.

Flexibility is good ! ( As is the game in question) :D

It wasn't a complaint limited to your post, as there are a number of other similar threads I could find if I looked for them.
I merely used the thread you posted in as an example. Therefore, your reasons for making that specific upload are irrelevant.

fanboys

A fanboy is a person considered to belong to one or more fandoms to a point of obsession.

Fanboy is a term used to describe any individual who is devoted to a single subject in an emotional or fanatical manner, or to a single point of view within that subject, often to the point where it is considered an obsession.

The term is most commonly associated with adolescent and teenage males but can be applicable to any age or sex, and is mostly applied by others as a derogatory label.

By 1990 the term was being used in popular music and science fiction circles, and as electronic entertainment gained popularity, the term became increasingly applied to computers and video game consoles - with people often developing an obsessive loyalty towards one platform or brand.

Current subjects of such obsessive loyalty include areas of: TV shows; movies; music; anime; comic books; cars; sirens; video game consoles, video games and MMORPGs; and computer operating systems, hardware and software, sports teams (such as Ferrari's Tifosi and Manchester United) —and more recently politics. "Fanboy" was added to the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary in 2008.
