    We've been seeing this message for a while. Are we going to get any pictures "stickyed" anywhere?:p

    Attention Video and Photo Posters: We are testing a new feature: 'Top Video/Photo' of the Day. We will 'sticky' a great video or photo each day (or so) and it will display at the top of the submissions. So post great stuff!

    Well... We'll try. Maybe one thing that would be nicer was if you could select multiple photos to upload at the same time. When you have to "browse" each time and just click on one picture at a time to insert into the thread, it takes a while.
    But there should still be the "top" photo once in a while, even if only a few are posted.
    And my pictures are always too large:(

    You can upload photos at the same time...sort of. You keep upload one after the other and it creates a list before you post them.

    But I understand what you mean.

    Pics being too large? You mean filesize? We have a limit at 3MB. You think it should be more??

    Thanks for your input on this Shawn. We need more of this! :)

    I copy the pic file into Windows Paint, select 'Image', select 'Stretch/Skew', select 60% and 60%, and save. Here's the result.

    The file sizes from our DSLR cameras average 6 to 7 MB, but shrinking the file size is quick enough. I encounter a problem when I attach a pic to a response from another poster. It usually times out the server before uploading. The above was posted as a response to the thread, not the poster, and it uploaded OK. I tried to upload it as a response to Shawn, and it timed out, several times.

    We're about to upgrade the forum to serve the images via a CDN....so It should make loading of the pics ALOT quicker.
