9/30/2012 - After staff discussion and voting, Rule # 7c in the main Furtopian rules has been changed.
c) Images in posts. While there is generally no rule to how large pictures can be in a post, Very large pictures are automatically scaled down to 700 x 700 pixels by the forum's settings. New version:
Out of common courtesy, please consider making them even smaller (400 to 600 pixels and/or 500 kb file size or less) to help speed up downloads for those members who have slower connections. If you have more than five images to show at once, please post them as links instead.
c) Embedding images in posts. There is no set rule to how large pictures can be in a given post, though very large pictures are automatically scaled down to 700 x 700 pixels by the forum's settings.A few clarifying points:
Out of common courtesy, please consider editing your images to an even smaller size, such as 400 to 600 pixels and/or 500 KB in file size or less, as this will be helpful to our members who have slower connections or bandwidth limits. If you have any large high resolution images to show, or if you have an excessive number of images, such as more than 8 to show at one time in a single post, we ask that you please post them as links instead. If more images are needed for a specific thread (Artwork, Conventions, Tutorials, Vacations, etc.), then please PM a mod/admin with a request to post more images..
Very little of Rule # 7c has changed. The biggest change is that the staff are allowing more freedom for members to post a few more images: From 5 to 8.
However.........Out of common courtesy, the staff will still have to ask that members post links instead for further pics if you go beyond 8. Again, this is simply to make it easier for persons who have slower connections or bandwidth limits as not all ISP services or electronic gizmos "are created equal" so to speak.
If you feel that you need to post more than 8 images in a single post, then contact a Mod or Admin and we'll be glad to review your request and help you out.
