Alright, sigh* [In reply to] Can't Post

I read that FAQ, but apparently I goofed up somehow.

In fact, I'm not sure exactly what I'm reading here. There goes my B.S. degree in Engineering Tech.

I thought when you multiplied height and width for a total, your pixel restrictions kept bandwidth down, or actually the thread doesn't get re-sized for everyone (who's using a full sized monitor), and then the file size limitations kept TORn bandwidth down. It made sense to me, at least.

As long as your total was okay, width could be what I posted.

So I read your reply again, and it even contradicts itself because your FAQ re-post says my width can be as much as 670, not just 525. Is that what you wanted? It would depend on the height according to the FAQ, as the total you multiplied came out less than 210,000.

My image was calculated at roughly 203,000. So that shouldn't have been a problem. So I guess you want the width smaller for smart phones or something? I can't really speak to that.

Rules are rules, but it's not as easy you think, using that photobucket website either. Calculating and cropping those pictures took time, finding the right artwork to superimpose, plus the little additions like golden ratio scale in the collage. Details, details. Look closer. That's my form of art, I'm a graphics hack of sorts.

I take it, you mean "top of the forum", if we're going to look at typo details, eh. (Ok, now I'm being a little smart.)

The screen capture stuff had been on my hard-drive for several few months, just something I noticed that's all. Had to find a Rankin-Bass picture to point it out, so "Smaug" was googled under an images search engine, and the original artwork came up in a public domain. I credited it, of course. Only fair to credit such nice work. I'd credit the tree-circle graphic, but it's lost to me. I think that it was found, googling the "flower of life" several months ago. Been seeing that flower of tree/life graphic around, even TV commercials by the way. It was part of my online research for the Egyptian Temple of Osirion and lunar alignments. I had seen a special on Ancient Aliens I believe, where the researchers had pointed out how intricately cut faces of the blocks used at that temple were unique of all the different Egyptian archeological sites, so it kicked off a run of late-night web research. The Flower of Life (laser cut) was added to the temple some time later. It should be noted according to Porphyry (233-c.305) Pythagoras possibly visited Osirion. But I'm digressing...

Let's see here...

...that deleted picture is showing up as 653x312 in my Microsoft Window Paint program.

When I visit the FAQ as you mentioned, the first link is Movie Board.

- - -

When I go to that link, the website is a forum thread, titled "Image Posting Guidelines".

Here's what the first post says...

version 2
Information on using images in a variety of forms is available at
Torn Image Posting Guide

- - -

Under that outline (non-TORN related), there's a section...


This is what it says...

Images Displayed in a Post
Should be no larger than 670 pixels wide
210,000 pixels squared (width x height). For example, An image 670 pixels wide can be no higher than 313 pixels tall.

50 KB for each image and 250 KB total for all images within one post

- - -

I get 84kb for the deleted image, and 40 Kb for the one that's not deleted. No problem there either.

So creepy as it may be, here's mother nature's picture re-sized in a collage of mine. Everyone should be able to see the full resolution at the link, hopefully, which is nicer to look via PJ's YouTube vid-blog, screen capture shot. Nice and big. I had no problems looking at it just now.

Here's the thumbnail, shrunk 80%.

So what's inconsistent in the guidelines, as far as you can tell, entmaiden? I'd ask, because my reputation here, yea it's important to me, you're such nice people.

I miss that around the internet these days. Never been a Twitter, Facebook, MySpace kind of person. Just like bulletin boards, myself.

And now I'm exhausted, never get that hour back.

Klaatu... Verata... Necktie. Nectar. Nickel, Noodle...Nikto!
