I'm well aware of the amount of text in my signature, thank you. Although the main point of this thread is a request to remove images larger than the specified size limit and animations.

It helps us keep the site running quickly, smoothly and within budget though. One or two images are ok but when hundreds of people are making hundreds of posts, each of which have a large image on them, it makes the site run slower and messes up the threads layout. It adds up really fast.

We appreciate the help. It takes a lot to keep this site in it's foot hold as the best hookah forum on the net.

I don't think 500x100 is bad. That should be enough room to fit whatever you need in there. It's pretty much standard size in sigs.

The size of the pixels have nothing to do with the ability for a picture to load quickly or not. It's how you optimize the picture... I have seen small pictures with a HUGE KB size, while my signature that USED to be here with a KB size less than that of half the others around here that were smaller in size than it. but I digress. No reason to argue something that is not up for discussion to change/alter.

But maybe I should go outside, as suggested by one person, eh?

QFT. exactly what i was going to say.

Forum is already doing that though (shrink down your browser to half screen, images are reduced automatically).

What it does is outright will not let you upload the image if it does not meet the parameters. Therefore until you fix it on your own, the server will not allow you to url point or load the image on the server. This would make the "User" responsible for meeting the standard and not require any part on the server besides using the code to compare the image to a standard Sambooka sets.

Example:
Comparison Image = 500 width x 150 height by 100kb
Uploaded Image = 501 width x 149 height by 100kb - NOT APPROVED
Uploaded Image = 500 width x 100 height by 50kb - APPROVED

This way only the content of the image needs to be moderated instead of the forum nazis having to review each person's sig to meet the standard. Wipe the slate clean, institute the standard, and everyone re-sizes and reloads their sigs.

i don't know why you're always a dick about everything...i've noticed it from you and only one other person on this forum. it's a good idea. it keeps hookahpro free and it keeps sambooka from spending so much money.

i have a brand new gateway with 8gb ram, 2 500gb hard drives, nothing running under msconfig (except AV), and less than 30gb of space on my computer used up, defragmented and scanned 4 times a week, and a thread full of .gifs or large animated sigs will still slow down my computer. it doesn't have to do with what you're running it on, and you can still express yourself with text and standstill anm.

Every computer is basically the same on the inside. Most every manufacturer buys parts from the same suppliers.

hey guys keep it civil. the fact of the matter is that its would only be gateways fault if they added a bunch of 3rd party software or you are using an old vesion of FF. i have 4gigs of ram and am on linux using firefox and load fine. as a rule of thumb firefox runs slower on linux because it doesnt have pgo while windows does.

Let's keep this civil guys. What makes our community great is our ability to figure things out without argument or conflict. Fighting does not help anything.

Actually I have built Gateways (mid 90's) where they started in Sioux City Iowa back in the 80's. I have several PC but those of memory Gateway 2000 386 & 486 Dx2 with a "Turbo" button, lol. Ahh memories, too bad Ted Wate was a retard and messed the company up. I remember when he would be all inebriated with a mistress at the country club on Saturday nights. Was quiet the scene to say the least but he tipped well so hell he can stand on the table all he wants too.

Sorry to get off topic but Gateways suck, no offense. Build your own next time and save some money and poor craftsmanship headaches.

Lot of tension flying around, so far I do not think anyone has been "Rude", "disrespectful" or otherwise. When asked for opinions people are going to differ and want to stand behind their thoughts. An invitation to the situation was offered so you cannot blame people for offering up a solution.
