It should be present for any thread with 3 or more pictures. We want to allow you to look at all the images, find images easily, be able to reference long lost, long loved, posts, and in general, adding to the navigability and features of the site.

Cheers,

Fok.

Well done on this. I have been messing around with the feature and I'm trying to determine the best way to utilize it in starting some "inspirational" type of threads that we've seen in the past. I don't have any organization to my own inspirational sartorial photos, so hopefully I can use this to get something going.

+1. that is awesome.

Glad you guys like the feature. To maul a saying, even a broken clock tells the time once in a while.

Cheers,

Fok.

Does the recent image function also just take screen shots after someone posts? I've noticed in a few threads that it just posts an image from the site to the "most recent images" section.

Yes, if a picture is posted, a copy goes automatically to the "most recent images" section, so people can browse the site by interesting new images, rather than by recently updated discussions, if they so wish. If nothing else, it will mostly keep you out of CE!

Cheers,

Fok.

Hate to be the whiner, but any way to make it so that the new picture gallery can be dismissed with the ESC key as you could dismiss full-size images before?
post #10809 of 14839
why can't we fucking have all the pictures automatically spoilered? i mean, how many people need to ask for this?

also, can we finally fucking have the new posts button back? PLEASE!?!? its idiotic to have to hover over the forum button just to bring up the new posts option.

^Both would be especially helpful for any apparatus with a touch screen. Certainly the second one. I used to visit the old site often via my phone (HTC Desire HD), but the lack of usability of the drop down menu has scared me off.

Hmmm... that seems reasonable. I'll see if we can do this. However, nearly all resources are being poured into the drive to bring out the fully mobile site, which will alleviate a the problems people have now (see CDFS's comment.) The mobile version of the site will make navigating very simple. And I'm sure that most of you will agree with me that it's about fucking time. So, yes, I'll push for this, but there is a much higher priority target on the immediate horizon.

You do know that if you click anywhere off of the gallery frame, the full-sized images are dismissed though, yes?

The first will probably not happen. There is often legitimate reasons to not spoiler the pictures, and making everything automatically spoilered would be more difficult for people not used to a rich text editor. If you want to spoiler something, it's easy enough. It's a tradeoff between making things extremely difficult for some users vs. making things a little easier for those who know how to do things anyway.

The second - er... to which pages on the site are you referring? On the forum pages, there is a "new posts" button...

are PMs not working?

No, they are, sadly.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I received your nudes.

They are working. If something doesn't work for you after a system upgrade, the best thing that you can do is to close an reopen your browser. I wish that it weren't so.

Question: is there a way to get "original" size photos to show up when I post them? I upload something to, say, Tinypic/Photobucket and then [IMG]that photo into a thread. Well, it was originally 1000x600 but it only posts as half that. Then, it sometimes appears as the right size when quoted by someone else. What is happening, exactly?
