Oversized Images? Not Anymore!
We now provide a new way to link images, and put them into your post. This way doesn't save any bandwidth, but it keeps threads looking a lot nicer by having the browser display the images smaller, and having them linked so that everybody can pull up a larger version easily.

To use it, simply use WIMG, the same way you would use IMG in your posts.

For instance, in your posts, you would use this (minus the spaces):

[ IMG ] [ /IMG ]

Now, you just use this (again, minus the spaces):

[ WIMG ] [ /WIMG ]

And you get a result that looks like this (and don't forget, you can click the image to get the full size!):

So, let us know what you think, if you want to see different sizes, don't like it, etc.

Just a bumping this up to remind everyone to use these tags to prevent posting oversize images. Nobody wants to scroll back and forth to read a thread.

We will edit out oversized images that get reported to us. This is one way to prevent that.

Bumping again, as we have had several threads in the past week or so where we had to resize large images.

It's quite easy to just add that "W" to the image tag. :)

Giving this one another bump

Please check your post after you put up an image.

If it is oversized take a moment to click the edit button and add w to each of the tags. If you know how to post an image you know how to add a letter to the tags.

But if you can't figure it out, just post a link instead of an image.

People with small screens will thank you. :)

It's so easy. Just add the "W" to the "IMG" tag.
