RE: Honest assesment of Deere vs Lugger

Maybe it's more a question of relevance. Your pictures rarely have any connection to the topic and seem to be posted just because you have one handy and need to be part of the conversation.

Are you trying to set a record for the greatest number of irrelevant posts and the greatest number of pixels posted per week or what?

Honest assesment of Deere vs Lugger

RickB, "get over it."* Come on!* Rarely?* No wonder many find you ... well, you know.

If you don't see the relevance, I suppose it's because our brains are*"wired" differently.* Nevertheless, your sniping*is tiresome.

RE: Honest assesment of Deere vs Lugger

I will second Marin's suggestion re the thumbnails. They take up much less space on the page and allow the viewer to decide whether to view them or not, so relevance is determined by the viewer.

Although I don't know for sure, I suspect that the thumbnail approach is less of a resource hog and I'm sure the moderators/owners of the site would appreciate any load reduction on the system.

RE: Honest assesment of Deere vs Lugger

Although I agree (techically) with Conrad & Marin's post, I also think that Mark has the best photos on this Forum and I really enjoy them!

RE: Honest assesment of Deere vs Lugger

Thanks, Walt.

Thumbnails only work for me if the pictures are in my computer.* Almost all my photos, however, are on others' servers, such as Snapfish, which don't work with this site's thumbnails.* (Address won't paste.)

Do a "Save As" on the photo on the other server, save it to your desktop, and load it to you TF post from there.

That works, but it is twice the work, and half the fun.

I didn't realize a mouse was such a labor-intensive, difficult device to use.* In any event I can speak only for myself, but I find the large photos in posts to be very annoying and space-wasting, particularly when they force me to scroll back and forth to read everyone else's posts on the page.* And no, I'm not looking at the web on a small monitor but on a large, stand-alone monitor.* But your photos still often force the page width out beyond the boundaries and scrolling back and forth becomes necessary to read the other posts on the page.* THAT is twice the work and half the fun.

"I didn't realize a mouse was such a labor-intensive, difficult device to use."

Depends on the brain wiring I guess.

What I find so offensive is the near total lack of relevance to the subject. The size and frequency just compounds the offence.

*Again I will second Marin's comments here.

And in keeping with the topic title, I'd say that thumbnails allow one to peruse the pages with the swiftness of a Deere whilst the large images slow the pace to that of a Lugger.

Sorry.

Honest assesment of Deere vs Lugger

This forum is*a great resource.* Because of our*available bandwidth the thumbnails are great.**The thumbnails*give me the option*to view them or not, no so with the full size pictures.****

The public wifi/internet in Panama restricts your downloads*to the point you can not view U-Tube.* Our other internet source limits us to 3.5 gigs per month.* That's my 2 cents.

* * ** I think that's the best way to do it and I also take a "snapshot" of a screen that I've seen on the Web, crop it & send it to my desk top as a "save as." Here's an example of a photo that I took and posted to this thread 30 seconds ago.
