Posting Pictures & Animated .gifs
GateWorld Picture & Animated .gifs rules
There is a great way to attach pictures/animated .gifs to a thread, using them to make thumbnails so that folks can see what's there without that same picture downloading over and over and over. Just use the attachments button below. This is the preferred way of posting pictures and animated .gifs
If you choose to post the pictures, they do have to fit a couple of criteria;
1) They cannot be larger than the forum boundaries, 300x400 is a good size. They cannot be larger than 100K.
2)If they are called from another server you must have permission to hotlink to them. Links like this do put a drain on servers and too many folks linking to too many pictures has been known to take a server down every once in a while.
If you choose to put the animated .gifs in your post, they do have to fit a couple of criteria;
1) They cannot be larger than the forum boundaries. They cannot be larger than 100K
2) You cannot quote the pictures/animated .gifs in your replies. Multiple copies of the pics/.gifs just drain more bandwidth.Please change to links in your replies by removing the IMG tags.
Last but not least, please do not post pictures/.gifs that spoil the current or upcoming seasons of shows and new movies ! Feel free to post links to those pictures with the appropriate warning of spoilers though.
Please remember: these rules are not here to diminish your enjoyment but to make the Forum accessible and enjoyable for everyone - including those forum members on a slow dial-up connection!
If you have any questions or problems please ask any of the mods.
