Can we talk about this?

Too often, I’m seeing pictures, blatantly lifted from outside (This week we find second place under angry replies) being pbumed off as appropriate and in fact winning. People who enter pictures are winning with someone else’s humor.

Now I’m not happy about that, but what really makes me angry is the fact that very often these pictures break the forum table in buildr. That picture is too big for your average fwz table.

If people are going to submit entries with pics, can there at least be a size restriction?

(edit: fixed a bad pic link)

I agree, and isn’t there some possibility of copyright infringement?

Signed 100 times.

In fact, pictures in forums slow down the speedruns as well. There should be at max 10-15Kb restriction per typical post/angry reply.

I find pictures to be very lazy, especially when they’re clearly ripped off from another source.

I usually downvote pictures unless they’re really good or look like they might be original. I always downvote them if I’ve seen the pictures before (like half of the lazy pictures which were posted on the Engrish forum and which first appeared in my inbox about 8 years ago).

We really can’t depend on downvoting to stop a table breaking pic. Now and again there’s a clever one (case and point, the link to the “this user has be b&” image from fwz used on Rage Against the Moderators) but since buildr is full of n00bs who upvote lazy crap like 8 year old pictures, shouldn’t there at least be a restriction on their use? say, for example, completely disabling the [img] tags on buildr. I wouldn’t see anything wrong with that, personally.

There also the problem of hosting pics. Even if they are deemed to be ok, most of the pics are still hosted places where they could easily be taken down. And that wouldn’t look good in the forum.

You can use the [img] tag to link to an external site. This is a big piece of the problem.

I believe that the pictures are copied to a ForumWarz server if they make it into the game.

That’s not an excuse for pictures which are crappy or which are frame-breaking, though.

Yeah, we really shouldn’t be hotlinking images. It’s just a bad idea. We’re going to have to do something about that.

To be fair, I think that broken link is part of a line like ‘Quick! Watch this before they take it down!’

So, I’m not sure it wasn’t broken to start with.

Unless you mean a different one.
