The Complete Idiot's Guide to Posting in the Pic/Video Gallery

I just wanted to set a few guidelines for the Photo/Video gallery. Basically it's just things that I find being posted about once a week, or sometimes once or twice a day, that I just delete on sight. I guess it's just common things people like to post, but they're things that just don't belong on PT.com.

I think the first and foremost thing on my list is the following threads, and I see them about once every 2 days, usually more:

*PIC REQUEST* HOT GIRLS ON NICE CARS OR NOT ON CARS

or something to that effect. Basically, just someone looking for pictures of "hot" girls. My response to that is, "This is Probetalk, not a porn site." You can go to www.google.com and type in "hot girls" and find plenty of material to suit your interests.


Another one that bothers me a bit is when someone posts a picture of their own car and asks for opinions. Then someone, who apparently doesn't have a taste for the car, posts something like the following:

"Wow, that car is trash. It's a disgrace to Probes. Put that Probe out of its misery and go buy a Civic"

You get the idea. That's not an opinion. That's an extremely disrespectful comment that needs not be said. I think we could avoid a lot of confrontation if people would use some tact in their replies.

The only other major issue I see, before I move on to the little things, is the Ford vs. GM battle. It seems like every time someone posts a Ford car or concept or something, the "Ford haters" have to put their two cents in about Ford sucking. And vice versa, when someone posts a picture of, say, a camaro, or a cadillac or something, it always seems to draw "Chevy haters" who need to put their two cents in about how GM sucks. It really is a pointless argument and I think what I'm trying to say is if your only reply to a thread is to degrade the brand name, then you obviously don't have anything worthwile to include about the REAL subject of the thread. Solution: Just don't post.

The only other things I have are a few nitpicky little things. When you start a thread, you MUST include a picture in your thread-starting post. The only exception is if you are REQUESTING a picture, in which case, I'd like to see the word "Request" in the subject line of the post.

I think that's all I have for now. If I think of anything else, I'll add it.

Also, the forum rules for picture size is this: 800x600 MAXIMUM RESOLUTION.

Any pictures deviating from that policy will have the image changed to a link. This is done to preserve site speed for those members who are still on slower connections.

Information: Image Res

just to let you know that the administration has decided to do away with the former rule regarding image resolution.

the new limit is now 800x600. the file size limit has not changed.


this decision was made with 4 of the 5 administrators having input and coming to a consesus agreement.

enjoy.

just one little thing to add:

been seeing a whole lot of '56k' this and '56k' that threads with tons of pics in them.

let's have some consideration for the members of the board who are on dial-up. they might want to view the thread but can't because there are too many pictures in the thread. the limit of pics per thread is 10. let's remember that okay?

People who continually ignore the pic rules, will have any tagged pictures in violation of the rules just deleted. No warning, no friendly edit; we've been friendly in the past and it is obvious us doing so has not led to people realizing they should follow the rules.
You'll be free to repost them in a way that does not violate the board rules on pic posting (ie as a link)
