Bumping
-Bumping your own thread, will get your thread deleted.

-Bumping somone elses, will get you a warning, at the very least. Possibly more.

-Using stupid tricks to get your thread bumped will not be tolerated.

-If your thread falls, TOUGH. It is because no one else is interested in seeing it.  So KNOCK IT OFF.

Image Size
-I'm tired of clicking on threads that have images that take up the entire screen and require scrolling to see the entire frame.  If you are going to post a picture resize it to a reasonable size or I will delete the thread.

-I don't want to hear anyone bitching about this because with the advent and popularity of Photoshop and similar programs this is not a difficult task to accomplish.

Flags/Smileys/Etc attached to initial thread
-I know that the site offers all sorts of fun little icons for you to use when you post a thread to draw attention to yourself.  Now here is the problem.  Not a single one of you deserves to have your thread looked at over someone else's thread.  Do not use these little icons to draw attention to yourself.  Only a few people have been doing this and I've heard complaints about it from a few other posters.  I have been going through deleting the icons as I see them but I've grown tired of doing so and will just delete your thread from here on out.  What that means for you is that if you want people to actually see what you are posting leave those icons off.

-I am only saying this for the person that is creating the thread becuase the icon they attach is visible within the actual forum.  If you're replying I could care less if you use those icons becuase it doesn't draw extra attention to the thread.

I'd say stickying is a trick to get your thread bumped.



Sorry, touchy area, I'm joking.

Is this for Riding videos and photos forum, or for all the forums in general?

Pretty much all forums. Just seems to be more of an issue in certain ones.

A bunch of ones in the bike gallery and sell/swap have been deleted.

Use your own judgement.  If it fits on a screen set at 1024x768pixels you should be good.

It just gets annoying having to scroll to view the entire image.

I guess if you want actual restrictions try to keep images your posting directly on the board under 650 pixels high and under 900 pixels wide.  If you want to link it to an external site I don't care how big it is because that doesn't affect how the board is viewed.

Since not everyone has a photoshop program, here's how to do it in paint.  

-Open the image in paint

-At the top left of the screen, click where it says “Image”

-Under Image go to “Stretch/Skew” (Ctrl + W)

-Then under Stretch (the first two boxes) change the horizontal and vertical percentage (100% is the original size of your picture.  If you enter 25%, it will be 25% of the original size, not 25% less than what it is now)

-MAKE SURE THAT YOU TYPE IN THE SAME NUMBER FOR BOTH HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL

-No need to dick around with Skew

-If you find the image isn't the size you want, go to “Edit” then, “Undo” (Ctrl + Z) and enter in a different number (Image is too small - larger number)  (Image is too big - smaller number)
