Forgive me MattPS2k, but I had to restate your request...
« on: December 19, 2000, 07:51:03 PM »
Okay folks.  These wallpapers are fab.  No doubt!  But let me repost something MattPS2k requested towards the end of his SSX w-paper post, "Also, guys...If you\'re going to post some Screen Grabs of your Desktop, at least take them time to Downsample them and resize them to i\'d say minimum 320x220. It is just courtesy to others, as they take quite some time to load."

Some posters have already posted grrrr\'s regarding download time of threads on this site.  A barrage of huge pics does not assist in the matter.  I live halfway in the sticks as far as ISPs and modem/phone lines go.  If my dog farts, I can tend to lose my connection (not quite that drastic, but definitely a good visualization of the problem).  So please, be merciful to the non-broadbanders out here and keep the size limited...

Thanks, and peace...

Valid point. But instead of censoring how big or many pictures a post should contain. I believe we should have a warning like "GRAPHIC INTENSIVE" in the thread title. Everyone wins that way.

This request was not meant as an act of censoring...

I did not meant to suggest a censoring of the size.  So please no one take offense.  Likewise, an "alert" in the title of the thread would be beneficial.

However, a point to note involves what can be unseen to those clicking an interesting topic/thread.  This point being how quickly (or if not quickly, perhaps better stated as, eventually) a thread can de-volve into something completely off-topic...and before you know it, vwahllah, monster pics start showing up within the thread.

So again, asking for mercy is not asking to censor.  Thanks for the consideration all!

I\'ve seen warnings such as: ( Warning: Lots of pics! )

and I agree that they should be used if needed. I don\'t care really but that\'s because I have aDsl.

Fast and Free ( it\'s always the same price, whether you are 1 hour a month or 24 hours a day )

But for slower surfers... I agree with W1ngman and Living-in-Clip

Well like I suggested in another thread.....we should have a single thread for artwork(like before). Keeps everything tidy:)

Maybe a forum? :P

...where there\'d be thumbnails of all the wallpapers so even the people with slower connections could be more at home :)

A wallpaper forum would be very cool. Although i downsample all of my thumbnails and make them 320x220, i will be sure to give a warning in my topic. Thanks for bringing it up W1ngman :) -matt

Matt, could I request you something?

Could you do a BG from Timesplitters? It\'s so cool game and I think you\'re going to make a helluva BG out of it ;)

But this is just a request. I\'m too lazy to do the work and besides I want to see other artists\' work :)

Sure Joyda. I\'d be glad to :) I am always open for suggestions. I will put one together now, but that means my MGS2 Wallpaper will be pushed back to later today, or tommorow. But, as we\'ll all soon learn when MGS2 comes out, patience means quality :) -matt
