|17th May 2009, 05:05 PM||Picture Guidelines #1|
In order to make threads quicker to load and easier to browse for everyone (fast and slow connections alike) we have the following guidelines set forth for posting pictures/images.
These rules are effective immediately as of this posting. All of the following apply to ALL forums on the site except where noted.
Inline images are those that display in the text of your post, using the [img] tag. These are different from attached images, which are uploaded using Manage Attachments.
Dimension Limit: Images may not be larger than 800 pixels wide by 600 pixels tall (or you can flip that and do an image up to 600 pixels wide by 800 tall). Any graphics editing program can resize an image.
Attached images are those that you upload to your post using the Manage Attachments button. Attached images are generally only allowed in specific forums and thus will not work in all forums.
Dimension Limit: You are limited to an attached image size of 1280 pixels wide by 1024 pixels high.
No Nudity/Adult Content: While we are not prudes, this site is usable by ages 13 and up, and we don't want angry parents. Any nudity (that is, female nipples as well as genitals or butt cracks of either gender) must be obscured (blurred, covered, cropped out). It should go without saying, but do not post pornographic images here (obscured or not).
If you violate the guidelines:
If you post pics beyond these limits, your post may be edited to temporarily remove the pic - you can edit your post to fix it later. Please be kind and polite if a moderator informs you that your pics are not within the guidelines. - they're just doing their job and all you need to do is change it.
If you really want to post something bigger or a different format...
You can link to it instead, either by using the [ url ] tag around an [img] link (so your picture that does fit the limits can be clicked for the larger/different format version that doesn't) or by simply posting a link to the image as text. You can also always collage separate pictures together into one picture using an image editor.
