I vote No on the sig image increase !

I hate going to a website with no sig image limit and having to scroll through fucking comic book page -sized images :lol:

I'm going to agree with Feev here.

Actually, I've had people PM me and ask if there's a size limit or not because someone has a sig ( not even the pic, but just a super long sig ) that's so large, each post takes a whole page.

You still having trouble, Path ? What's the original size of your image ? Try saving the image under a different name and reuploading it.

I've got that one I've tried & tried that's 190x140 pixels, and now I'm trying a completely different image, originally sized 180x145. Whatever, it's auto-reduced continually.

I vote No on the sig image increase !

I hate going to a website with no sig image limit and having to scroll through fucking comic book page -sized images :lol:

I'm fine with Width increase, but not much more on height. 200-250 I think is suffice. Wider wouldn't make much difference.

I did say 200x700, idk where all this about unlimited sig space is coming from. We already use 200x500, what's 200 more on the banner? The space is being wasted anyway. Anyone have any comments on my words about web-hosting?

Daghain
10-14-2010, 07:52 AM
What about web hosting? I must have missed it

John Blaze
10-14-2010, 07:54 AM
You know, I read in the site moving plea thread that we're testing new avs to see if maybe we will keep them, as long as they don't slow down load page times. TBH, although bigger avs WOULD be nice, I'd rather have bigger sig banners, like a 700x200. IDK, that's just me. Maybe you could do a poll about that. Also, the avatars get hosted here, whereas banners have to be hosted elsewhere, so wouldn't the bigger avs slow down page load times more than banners that are hosted at photo hosting sites, or such? Again, not a computer expert. Just my 2 cents.
bump for new page

Daghain
10-14-2010, 07:56 AM
I think where the pic is hosted is probably irrelevant, unless the hosting site is down for some reason. Most people use Photobucket if it's not on here, and usually that loads just fine.

Letti

I used to hate small avs but I got to like them here. I will be strange to have bigger ones. :)

Yeah but if we're hosting the av pics here, wouldn't that increase our site's bandwidth use? Again, I'm a rookie when it comes to this shit, but just saying, bigger avs, bigger files sizes the site is hosting, as opposed to pb or flickr or some other place hosting banners.

Randall Flagg
10-14-2010, 09:27 AM
We have a fast processor, lots of memory and a great deal of bandwidth for the site.
As for the thought of signature pics being 700 pixels wide, I'm against it.
As I look at your signature now, the text and pic are a combined ~>1,000 pixels wide.
My PC monitor resolution is 1680x1050. My laptop is 1920x1080.

John Blaze
10-14-2010, 11:01 AM
Ok, but what's the difference between mine, and say, Ladyhitch's, or Paths, or Daghain's even? The width is there, pic or no. I could have left the pic on the left and put the text underneath it and it'd be just as long as some of the other people's sigs.

I'd rather have one like Jean's is now, that takes up the width of the screen but not a vertical giant, than I would something like Odetta's or Mattrick's. At least mine is limited in width.

And I'm not knocking anyone's sigs, just saying. Back at .net we had some trouble with people having sigs that were half a page long, sure made it a pain in the ass to scroll around.


Now, having said my piece, I changed my mind about the 700 long, and why don't we just keep things the way they are? I don't remember anyone complaining about the 100x100 or the 200x500 either. I'm using a 200x200 now, and I like it, but I don't see that I need it, or that it makes the site funner to use.

If He-Man's pic were wider, wouldn't that change the margin for the text? Here, see how what my screen displays differs from what you showed from yours--

http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s12/POTT2007/sc.jpg

The sig grows longer when text justification is narrower, but that shouldn't be unreasonable so long as you keep the visible character limit. (I certainly wouldn't be in favor of dropping that!) Still, I'd think that allowing slightly wider pics wouldn't necessitate scrolling the page... unless there are technical details of which I'm unaware.

candy
10-16-2010, 09:36 AM
personally i don't like the increased avatar, they impede too much onto my page so the whole page is shoved across to the left, so when it comes to pics or reading a post i am having to move the page across, which may not sound much but i only have a laptop and no mouse, so believe me its a pain in the arse

its also taking away from the text that someone is posting

just little old me's opinion:unsure:

Randall Flagg
11-19-2010, 03:50 PM
We've added Black Stealh 4.0.8 to your choice of displays for the site.
To view, use the dropdown menu at the bottom left of the page. There are now 3 styles available, with more to come. If you don't like one style-try another.

Same here. I'm still using the default style.

Randall Flagg

It's just another choice. It does give an idea what the site would have looked like if we went with a black background.

I think I'll continue using the Take Five style - peach background is easier on the eyes for me.
But thanks for giving us more options, guys!

That is exactly the point: Give people choices so they can decide what works best for them.


I use the plain default vBulletin skin at work, but use the Take 5 skin at home.

Randall Flagg
11-20-2010, 02:55 PM
There are now 8 different choices to view the forum.
Check them out on the lower left drop down box.
There should be something there for most anyone.

EDIT:
Most browsers remember the style you have chosen. If not, go into your Control Panel and change your default choice. Procedure:
Settings (Upper right corner)>
General Settings>
Miscellaneous options-Forum skin-use the drop down box to select the style of your choice>
Save settings

On three of the skins (Vbulletin default, Take Five 4.0.8, and Take Five Alpha ) the banner is designed to fit the screen of the viewer, the wider your screen, (higher your resolution), the more of the scenery you see left and right.
The other 5 skins have a non-fluid image placed in the upper left. One of the skins-Folio Green, has an entirely different image.

I think I like the blue best, with the gray folio black second.

Is there any way to keep the selection for all forums? When I switch forums, the color reverts to the orangish color.

John

Do you mean when you leave the site? Closing your browser?
I'm surfing and have no problem. I'm using Firefox.

jhanic

I'm using IE8. Whenever I change forums (for example, going to the main--Palaver--forum from Calvin's Corner, the color which was the blue in Calvin's Corner goes to the orangish in Palaver. Also, after I've changed the color, whenever I use the Back button, the color reverts to the orangish also. No big deal, but it IS frustrating.

John

Randall Flagg
11-20-2010, 03:43 PM
I tested the following browsers:
IE8
Google Chrome

Only IE8 always takes me to the default skin. Sorry but I don't think we will change Microsoft.

That really shouldn't be happening John. A backspace may cause it because it doesn't pick up a recent change but anything forward should be the skin you choose.

The orange is the default on the site so anytime you are here as a "guest" it will be orange.

Try this: Go into your user CP and go to "general settings" on the left. About three quarters down is a place to choose your skin. Set the one you like there and hit save. It might help.

Just a suggestion but you might want to think about switching to a browser other than IE. It's horribly unsecure.

I am sorry to report that "Special Projects Manager" Brice has requested to be removed from active staff.
Brice may choose to discuss the reasons here, or he may wish to keep them private.
I am still a bit choked up, thus no flowery statement at this time.

Brice
03-07-2014, 05:30 PM
The short explanation is my mother is in a nursing home after her recent health issues and will need full time assistance. I'll be basically selling most everything and going. Also at play is working 15 hour (or more) days 4 days a week and working a total of 7 days between 2 jobs there is very little time to post much less perform any function as staff. The truth is I've done very little around here in quite some time...and won't be able to in the forseeable future. I'll try to be around when I can though and if at some time in the future there is a need for me and i can I'd be happy to help. It's been wonderful. :grouphug:
