Cut the crap, fuckers!  

We don't need these damn "crap" threads. If you want to test if your signature is working, or if your .gif is being displayed correctly - then by all means do so, but is there any reason why you can't delete your post after having done so? If you want to upload an image as an attatchment that you want to use in a post elsewhere, is it really any harder to just upload it in the post you want it on? And if you're just uploading images for your own private use elsewhere, don't you think it's a tad unfair to expect Evan to have to pay to keep your images when you can easily find your own webspace elsewhere for free?

The fact you all feel the need to "test" your signatures and .gifs says a lot about your vanity. The fact that you don't delete these "tests", and leave them on Evan's space to pay for, and leave them as "new" posts for people to enter the forum and read, only to find nothing at all of interest - says a lot about your selfishness.

I hope that I can say the things I wish I'd said.

Actually, I think it shows that we don't want to be flamed by Kirk or Sysiyo when they don't work in the real thread.

Re: Cut the crap, fuckers! new [re: twister]  

if there was a way of deleting an attchment that would be great and would save space and bandwidth.

as for people using there images elsewhere I totally agree with you, that would be unfair in the first degree.

Please take a look at my web site

Whenever you delete a post with an attachment the attachment gets deleted too. Judging by the amount of "crap" in this forum there's very few, if any, people who actually bother to do this.

FU too! new [re: twister]  

What's your problem? For the first time ever I gave my username a gif the other day, and before just trotting it out there to accompany my spouted shit-o-gold in Coffee Shop or NVQ, I wanted to test it to see if it looked reasonable at the slightly smaller pixel parameters here. What's the big deal, you little twerp? Weren't you the one that posted a whole slew of gifs of yourself when you hadn't even washed your hair!!!!.

I think I've put you in your place. Send PMs of thanks to me, TW, I like basking in your adoration.

Your .gif sucks, anyway. new [re: power2charm]

P2C, for your convenience I will copy and paste a short segment from my original post.

"If you want to test if your signature is working, or if your .gif is being displayed correctly - then by all means do so, but is there any reason why you can't delete your post after having done so?"

You tested your .gif. Fair enough. Doesn't mean you have to leave behind a shitty post that's taking up bandwidth, helping threads become "hot topics" (making a mockery of the whole system) and counting as "new" to coax people into viewing threads to find there's nothing of value to see - when the aforementioned shitty post can easily be deleted. Come on, look at this post, p2c - tell me it isn't shitty. Tell me it deserves to be in your overall canon of posts. You started this thread, p2c, you of all people should know better.

I hope that I can say the things I wish I'd said.

Don't speak for Evan when you say it's a "tad bit unfair" for him, because I haven't seen Evan complain at all. He doesn't need you to nitpick for him, twister.

As far as it bothering you, live with it hun. It's not the end of the world.

Here's a quote for you from Evan himself, on the 6th of January this year:

"It also is better for my bandwidth if you store your pictures off-site and refer to them. Otherwise, every time you put up a 75KB picture for your CP profile (instead of scaling it down), the 1000 people or so who visit Conversation Piece every day will make multiple requests for your picture every time they view your posts. This can easily add up to many, many megabytes of bandwidth (which is the very thing which costs me the most amount of money for my server).

Thus I would always recommend that you get your own website and store your pictures etc on there rather than Teenage Wildlife if at all possible."


Take a look for yourself here.

I hope that I can say the things I wish I'd said.
