Policy change~Image sizes

Postby Ye Olde Republic » Mon Aug 23, 2010 11:01 pm

Hello members, classic-castle administration has decided to increase the maximum image size you are allowed to put in your posts. With the recent changes at Flickr, a very popular place for image hosting, of their default size of 'medium' images being 500 pixels wide you may now use that setting. For you Flickr users, they even now have a handy bbcode that you can just cut&past into your posts; it can be found in the drop down menu "Share" right above your picture. Images 500Wx400H may now be used. One image of this size per post so please choose carefully. Four images per post should be enough so make sure if you have a lot of pictures to show off, make sure you link back to the gallery. The old rule still applies to posts with multiple images.

To simplify:
1. Your main image may be 500 pixels wide x 400 pixels high or smaller.
2. Additional images must be thumbnail images, as before.
3. Your post may contain only four images total.


The old rule can be found in the TOS here and here:
Be considerate of transfer speeds. HTML is currently disabled, but if it is enabled at a later date, the use of embedded objects, java and javascript are not welcome. Also, do not use overly large signature images or post overly large images in your post. An ideal signature image is 100 pixels high or less; images in a post should be 400 pixels high or less. Please do NOT include the image in your reply. These provisions will help keep Classic-Castle.com running quickly and efficiently.


Thanks and enjoy.
Trevor

Trust me, I think I'm funnier than you do.
Why do I have to add the word "minifig" to my spell checker every time I use it?!

To clarify, what if your main image is 'portrait oriented'? Will you allow 500p high x 400p wide, or smaller?

A reminder to please not take advantage. It's not cool to put more than the allotted pictures in your posts and then tell us that you thought it was OK because you weren't told to edit your post right away. "Playing dumb" or feigning innocence will get you nowhere. It is your responsibility as a member here to know the written rules and guidelines. We understand that there are the unwritten ones and those take time to come to know and fully understand.

Usually you get to post 2 images and provide links to the rest. Exceptions are sometimes made, but if you are going to post 8, they probably should be as small as possible.

You post two and link to the other images or you link to the folder or set. Please do not post more than 2 in each post.

I don't mean to be a pain, but in this post you said that we we're allowed 4 images or less, has the policy changed since then? Could you please clear this up for me.
