Posting Photos In Your Threads - PLEASE READ LIMIT TO 10
« on: August 20, 2007, 03:05:19 AM »
The entire Goosemoose community thrives on seeing pictures of everyone's rats. We love to fawn over their little faces and see them in all kinds of environments. And posting photos, as you might have learned by now, is nearly mandatory on our threads ;)

That said, recently many members have been posting an excess number of photos on their threads. We really do appreciate you taking the time to share your babies, however when you have a large number of pictures in your thread you severely limit who will read your threads. Users with slower internet connections or with dial-up often skip over threads with photos in them because they take so long to load. These large photo threads are also a drain on the forum's bandwidth.

To keep the forum enjoyable for everyone we ask that you limit the number of pictures posted to a maximum of TEN per post. This does not mean that you can start ten different threads, or reply to yourself seventeen times in a row to get in all of your pictures! Please choose your very favorite shots to share, and if there are more that you'd really like people to see you can put a text link either to an online gallery where they're displayed (such as photobucket, goosemoose, flickr, or your own web site), or to specific images.

We're not trying to be "picture Nazis," or diminish anyone's enjoyment of the forum -- in fact, quite the opposite! What we're really asking is that people use COMMON SENSE when posting photos in threads. Dumping your entire memory card in one post is certainly NOT cool, and causes a lot of technological problems for people with slower connections and older computers. We want people to be able to enjoy the pictures without crashing their systems. ;)

If you are unclear as to what this means for you, please feel free to contact a moderator for clarification. For the threads already in progress we ask that you edit your original post to fit the above guidelines. All new posts should follow the guideline. Users who ignore this guideline are subject to having their excess pictures removed from threads by a moderator.

Thanks for your cooperation in keeping the forum fun for everybody!

Just a reminder that the photo limit applies to everyone!  10 photo's per post.
