I'm not sure if it's technically possible, but what about keeping the pics for a week or two and then convert them into attachments (automatically, if coding allows that)?

Hi,

I have to admit about the pictures.
Everytime I want to see a picture, I have to click and login.

Also.. my two cent to improve about pictures, is :
When browsing in the treads.. the paperclip is for attachments.
My thought is, when you click on the paperclip.. you'll get a list with only the attachments and/or pictures that is putted there in that thread.
Idea?.. I don't know. Just 2cent

Regards,
Remco Blankesteijn.
(sorry for the bad english)

If you log in to the forum first on the homepage then you never have to log in again to see the pics.

Click the image to open in full size.
If you replace the tags with the VB code ones it works... click on the IMG biutton above to generate a set

Bandwidth wouldn't be such a problem is users knew how to compress their images. I know that some do since many photos load very quickly. But others can take 15 secs... on a 2Mbit commercial DSL connection!

The little check box for "did you search" slows people enough to make them think. A similar check box for "did you compress your attachment" might make them really think.

Also, a limit on the size of an attachment to less than 50K would automatically force uploaders to compress most of their images. In fact, removing BMP as a valid extension might show an immediate drop in file size since it automatically weeds out the graphically-challenged.

If BW is still needed, get rid of avatars, email notification and other extras that are not needed to communicate DIY.

AudioFreak is busy, busy trying ways to keep our traffic below our bandwidth allocation... since attachments represent 1/2 our bandwidth usage it only makes sense to attack it there. And without unlimited bandwidth (ie unlimited $$$) something like this needs doing. diyAudio continues to have explosive growth, and any and all ideas to help save bandwidth will be welcomed.

Anything we do will be a compromise... personally i like the thumbnail idea (getting it to work is a whole other thing).

AF is still optimizing the way this works & is continuously working to make this forum better.

In my browser i am not asked to log in for each picture -- matter of fact i am rarely asked to log-in, so i expect that this issue has to do with how your cookies are set up.

Default I dislike it a lot, loose of ready images.

I dislike it a lot, and i will tell you all friends my reasons, some serious, some of them kidding.

1) If images are not already open, to compare schematics will be a little bit harder. When a lot of friends are cooperating to increase certain design, a lot of images succed one after the other, how can i open all them, have to minimize and open, and them minimize other and open... can use thumbs plus or something alike... the way we are doing is easy, whe schroll and ready to compare.

2) Our magnificent forum will loose one of their best qualities...Multimedia...not only words, but also images...better if we had sound too, but one image has a 1000 words meaning . I am afraid a lot of people will migrate to others foruns, because now is more levelled one each other, the advantage of ready image finished.

3) Some time we have not enougth time to read all thread words, this way, fast a check in images..no image, no fast check anymore. how can i found excelent Eva's analyses without seeing their hands (smile)

4) Its not fair, i do not think because i am poor, in comparison other country people, and my system is slow, the entire forum will be levelled underlined, levelled worst than it can be, i will wait, because my system is low, and i think you can go faster, or not?

5) I already ordered and already paid for draws to invite Asiatic people that do not speak english to come to us, with some designs, they can move circuits, modified, cut, include, without a word, image can do that, substitute words if you have one schematic appearing all time. This way Destroyer will have to eat those papers with Mustard.... no good! (kidding)

6) Brazilian football, and English football, and wide world football are teaching us all the time that is no good to change the team that is winning... can be bad!... this way, no good idea change our wonderfull forum to be another one... alike others.

I have more 16 reasons, but i am tired to type... i think those are enough.

Please, you that did that, move it again to old model, please, or give me the responsable adress, want to send him a gift, a pack, with a protude material to put atop the computer to remember me (hahahaha... smile if not can be hard!)

Carlos

Default A forum friend told me some related caipinha

This is tradicional drink here, is made of Cachaça (sugar cane destilled very strong) mixed with smashed lemmon and suggar... i prefer not to smash lemmon, because its protection had not so good taste, but give some taste characteristics that is not avoidable.... but only feel pieces of lemmon surround will be better.

Caipiríssima, is the super, a superlative, same the above but used Rhum.... from Cuba and other Central America countries... sugar canne also.

The best, my taste, is Caipiroska (russian) because is made with Russian Vodka with lemmon and suggar also...better, Vodka have not strong taste, when you perceive, you are in a hotel.... goooood!

Carlos
