    Those pictures, though 'trollish' in nature, actually says something. Just quoting and saying nothing at all is just a waste of space, it's already been written once!

    (By saying that, i don't condone those pictures, but at least they do SOMETHING. But only a smidge more than unnecessary quoting)

    It's not as bad as the people who just hit quote then post without writing anything

    Report them. Images are spam. QFT with nothing else is spam. No text at all is spam.

    Is there any point in reporting spam (replies) if a thread is already locked? (and the spammers not banned)

    Well, I wouldn't report anything in a locked thread - and we usually don't know who gets banned. Some mods change the avatar to an orange "B" in square brackets. Temp bans are certainly not indicated. Other users return under a different name, but their style of posting and trolling makes them recognizable (they usually also come back with a very similar username to make clear how smart they are. Some of those got banned again, others stayed.

    So unless we get a feedback to our report or there is an automated system that adds "banned" under a name, we won't know.

    So, in short: the internet.

    Your post has been corrupted with evil powers. Your forum guidelines link has gone bad!

    Re: Reporting posts and you

    Just wondering if the moderators find my way of reporting annoying.
    Simply stating troll is plain boring, so I try other stuff.

    Like a few days ago the guy with the small penis picture, I reported something along the lines of "You better remove that quickly, before some old woman gets a heart attack." Is that clear enough or should I leave it at "nude picture of guy with small penis"?

    Good thing you dont have these powers that you seek. Dets avatar is 8.59KB. Panoramix's is a close 9.55KB. For some reason your showing them as taking up more memory them they are. I don't know why.

    Eh rly? When i pull the to my desktop both avatars are 12kb.

    And the sig's dimension was a little over but I already forgot by how much.

    As for the "power" thing well I had to face someone that did just that so I'm thinking I'd do a pretty good job of it as well.

    Especially since the Murloc mod (Grimlor's the name), said it can't be a single kb over the limit or ZAP =)

    The lolreporting is just me being stupid cause I'm still manic over my own Avatar/Sig getting owned.

    I just noticed the .gif on Pano's avatar is (9,784bytes) but the size on disk is 12kb so which matters?

    That would actually a lot more interesting than my attempt at fail humor.

    Re: Reporting posts and you

    It says 9.55kb for me as well, just wondering what you meant by "pull to my desktop".
    Most browsers will just tell you the file size if you right click an image and select properties.

    BTW Mr_Bojangles wrote the new sticky about resizing avatars and used mine as an example, so doubt it's violating any rules .

    Heh sorry about that was just being a douche but the point was more about how silly the size thing is than actually get your stuff sacked.

    I usually drag stuff to my desktop from the browser so I can play around with it and I looked at the properties there but now you mention the right click properties I see the values diverge quite a bit.

    Trying to weasel my way out of how obvious of an internet r tard I am but I just never really had to check sizes and dimensions on things before so never learned the proper way to do so.

    Thank you.

    Re: Reporting posts and you

    When you actually save it to a disk it takes up more space because it needs to record some data about the image, such as date it was created and properties.

    Good to know, so say my avatar is 12kb on disk do I refer to the number in parentheses next to it to know what it will be for a website?

    Re: Reporting posts and you

    I don't know what OS you are using and what you are referring to =( For me it looks like



    The highlighted size is the size it will show up online. There are 1024 bytes to a KB, thats why it says 392KB and over 400k bytes. The size on disk refers to the total space given to the file so that it can have those dates you see below, as well as other things. I use windows 7

    Thanks for the reply and illustrated explanation on top if it, very cool of you, except maybe windows 7, not so cool =P.

    I'm a Mac user that might explain a lot of thing...

    You confirmed what I suspected, about to be back with a vengeance, watch me.

    *Voila! Now I'm happy again =)
