    I wish more people would load their pictures as thumbnails, especially the photo heavy posts. I get tired of waiting for all the pics to load, I end up leaving it and go on to another.

  2. I have to say I am of the exact opposite opinion. I find nothing more annoying than having to click on a bunch of thumbnails to see pictures in a thread. You need a better internet service if you are waiting long for photos to load.

    My heartburn is over photos hosted on an outside server like photobucket. So many times I've opened up a very interesting thread that is more than a couple years old and all the pictures are unavailable. I spent a lot of time in the past on a forum called Shop Floor Talk and they insisted on photos being posted directly to their forum so they would never be unavailable. A little more trouble for some guys too lazy to post individually, but much better for everyone over time. Oh yeah, not a fan of thumbnails either.

    Mama taught me if I couldn't say anything nice then keep my pie hole shut. SO; I'll say that full sized pix are quite nice.

    If I see a bunch of moderately interesting thumbnails I generally dont bother opening them. (Lazy me ?)
    Full size is much more pleasing to the eye, they open quicker than clicking a frustrating thumbnail.

    Throw away your rotary dial cell phone while you are upgrading your server.

    How do you guys get your thumbs/thumbnails so damned clean? Only time my hands are that white (pink) is after a couple months ramblin' around in my home grown motorhouse. Most of the year this is about as good as they get. Dry, cracked and usually several broken nails. Go-Jo, Agent Orange, Boraxo, all help, but the only thing that makes them soft and pink is not being in the shop.

    Well this went south in a hurry.
    I am no fan of thumbnail photos and often just glance over a thread where the OP has posted a batch of thumb nails rather than taking the time to go over each photo.
    I'm guilty of posting from a photo host "Photo bucket" in the past an now have a Smugmug account but haven't figured out how to post from it and have the photo show.
    Lately I just put the photos in the thread and done. I'm not paying the 300 a year to have the photos stay up when I already have two pro Photobucket accounts.
    I probably have the crappiest internet of anyone on the HAMB here at home and full size photos still come right up. My internet is so bad that it times out before I can attach photos to an email lately .
