Guess I don't get this new shit.

 

That attachment didn't work because it has no file type. Images on the web have to end in '.jpg' or '.png' or '.gif' depending on the file type. I'm actually looking into a solution that either auto detects or at least warns you when posting image attachments that are missing the file type, but for now... Make sure you attach images that have the proper file type in the name.

You got it man... :)

..image doesn't show show for me though..

 

BUT ANYWAYS

please enable embedding of full size images again, this "click to enlarge" shit is annoying as hell and destroys the experience and reading fluidity of the thread(s).

I mean seriously.

Problem is that 30%+ of traffic is coming from mobile now. Those pages take a while even on desktop since all the images are coming in full res by default. On mobile its almost unusable on the more photo heavy threads.

 

Have you tried just enlarging and viewing as a slideshow? You can browse through all of them at a size that is actually larger than when they get posted inline, so it winds up being the best of both once you get used to the two different views.

FUCK MOBILE USERS.

 

nah I'm kidding, I actually browse the oontz on my phone frequently. What I don't like is on my computer the 12oz logo & forum links permanently stays on screen & you can't scroll past it anymore. It makes for quick access to other links to the site but it also takes up about 20% of the page.

Out of curiosity, what size display are you using? Seems these days monitors are so cheap everyone is on pretty hi-res displays unless they're on mobile. That said, even on a MacBook Air 11" I feel its still fairly decent, especially when viewing in full screen mode.

Is there a way to increase font size on the site? Even if only in the reply box? Maybe bolder letters? Anyone else having visibility issues?

Ok, so this means the majority of traffic, close to 70% is coming from non-mobile, right.

So there's your priority.

If in this day and age an internet site with a couple of hi-res JPGs is a problem for you then good luck browsing anything.

 

How about JPGs are auto-resized to a max width of, say, 800px or max size of 200kb or something.

Yea, I actually did.

Though it's not the most important thing to have huge ass fullscreen pictures in 4K, but, as I laid out a few pages ago:

A lot of time people "reply" with a picture instead of a long sentence*, this is not really possible anymore when you always have to click on the fucking thing first.

* ..as in: a pictures says more than a 1000 words etc.

 

So this is how a lot of communication / dialogues work in internet forums nowadays.

It's good! It's convenient, it's fun, and it works really well.

Now if you take this away by thumbnailing any and every picture, this doesn't work any more.

Sorry to be a bore, but this stupid slideshow option is useless, as you can't see the posted pics in context with what's been said .

 

It destroys reading fluidity / takes away from the whole experience.

 

 

FUCK MOBILE USERS.

 

Haha, well yea. Not seriously "Fuck them", if they really make up 30% of traffic -

but please don't design the whole site for mobile instead for desktop (as is already the case in some ways).

 

Besides - what's up, don't you have 4G internet on your phones in the United States ???

 

I can even watch videos no problem on 3G, on my five year old phone, so why this whinig over some JPGs ?
