Understand where Magnet is coming from on the length----but I have checked the "properties" (right click mouse---click on Properties) on some of the thumbnails and am finding a wide variety in size in different postings.
For instance on the radiator post---I had scaled the scan down to roughly 600x450, but when I posted into the radiator post thumbnail, I came out with a 100x66+/-. In checking the properties on some of these thumbnails---I am getting a much larger size thumbnail (and a much larger picture when enlarged). Apparently----we ain't all going through the same process of preparing the picture for posting. Anybody got any ideas on what the differences are???
I looked at the Image Shack and Photo Bucket programs----probably gonna be best for my old worn out brain to stick with the browse thumbnails---even if I can't read them. (think my "upstairs" clutch is slipping more and more each day)
Ready (and easy) access of archived information definitely needs to be the long range program for the board to be shooting for. If its easy to upload into archives---it will get uploaded and saved. If its a pain in the ass---very little will get transferred into the archives. Then one day, the old codger with all the information house burns, or he happens to "catch the train" and the treasure chest of information and knowledge is long gone forever.
I definitely am not complaining or criticising what we have here now, but while we are discussing the subject, I hereby urge the ACMOC leadership to support Joe Black's needs and recommendations to fully develop this new board so as to maximize archived information capabilities. It will benefit us now and many more users for the future.
