    Click? or no click?

    I can't stand how you have to click the pictures if you wanna see em. What do you guys think?

    Probably because people like me used to flame with pictures. I think I made people cry to the admins how I could get a webhost to hold the pics I use to insult them?

    Please go back to the old way, this is very corny (No offense to whoever made the decision). I just think the [img] command is our friend. If we can tame it, it will be very benefitial!

    We have a winner.

    The reason I changed it was because the website was going too slow. We are adding another 1/2 gig of memory to the server tonight. if it speeds it back up significantly, I will change it back.

    I hate it also but I did notice that 1)there were a lot of useless pics being posted and 2) it was making the board run really slow like Jason said. If it speeds up with this added drive space cool if not I'd just as soon be annoyed by clicking on a link as the page opening slow.

    Jason just and idea but I'd volunteer to go back and delete some older posts that are no longer needed on the board to save space (and money). Just the old BS stuff that has no usable info in it. Hell I can think of a few former members who we can delete all the pics and or posts from and get a couple gigs from them alone.

    key, to find the answer, make a thread, upload the image and copy the url for the actual image. Then delete the thread and paste the url for the image into your browser and see if its still there. I do believe its errased from the data base with the thread but im not certain because i know if you change your avatar, the old one will still exist on the server.

    Unless I am mistaken I believe that in the user CP we have the option to click or auto load images?

    If so, why not default ALL users to click on images, and those of us who prefer auto load can go change it in the CP?

    As for deleting old threads, count me in... I'll go clean up my act.

    This is called upgrading to a better server.

    I know what you mean, but the admin panel over-rides the usercp. If I can find a way to go in and change everyone's option at once, which is what you are suggesting, it would work. But right now, that is not available.

    Ron, I can prune users with X # of posts or less, I can prune threads older than X days in whatever forum I want, etc... We can clean this board up of old posts easily, I just need a good guideline as far as how old of posts we want to keep in certain forums.

    Thing is, if you mass prune by date, you're going to lose MANY of the educational threads as most of them are extremely old.

    I can prune threads older than X days in whatever forum I want. It's forum specific.

    well in that case, prune every forum for bdtr's posts with the date starting 10-31-03 and dating back to whenever.

    what about all these new members who register but don't ever come on the board ?? is there anyway to tell of their last time on the board ??

    I was actually thinking of going back to about a year ago and deleting all those "Who's Your Fav Stars Wars Chr" threads. Must have been 100's like that. Each one has at least 1000 pics on them too. Thats got to be some waisted space Huh? We can prune that guru guy who asked all the questions too. Plus we can get rid of Full Intensity's first 1000 posts.

    well, there was a hack on the old vb2. I'm sure there will be a way to do this in the near future.

    the lounge could definitely be pruned some. How far back do we want to go though?
