As a result, any images posted to EB should automatically re-size, so there's no more of that horrendous 'gigantic image' nonsense messing up the threads and people shouldn't need to adjust the dimensions.

Edit: 1nkling advises clearing your cache if you don't see the change on your system.
I didn't need to, though I'm using a phone whose cache may behave differently to a PC/Mac.
This doesn't mean people shouldn't take the effort to use smaller and optimised images where possible though. They might fit on the page but they'll still be huge in file size.

Also, they may look 'squished'.

I still use tinypic. Mostly because I have for, like, forever, and change is for the young.

I can't remember who I used before tinypic, but whatever it was, they eventually got bought out or lost the domain. Someone made it so that every link went to the same porn gif -- some girl taking a massive dude right down her throat. I had to email Clay at GP and be like, hey, so, bad news, like 200 pics I've posted have been replaced with a porn gif. That wasn't a happy day for him.

In a pretty quiet area, some woman decided to answer her phone and use speakerphone while holding the phone close to her mouth. Why the drymount don't you just put it up to your ear and use a phone like a normal human being. No one wants to hear your stupid ass conversation. And no, she wasnt deaf because she was talking to other people. :evil:

I really hate when you say thank you and the response is "uh huh"

Don't know why it just bugs the fudge out of me.

I hate it when people say thank you and they expect you to say you're welcome back. I didn't ask for your drymounting thanks. :hanging:

Lol. I'm ok with anything else: No problems, no worries, you got it... anything, but uh-huh to me feels so "yeah, i know. I did something for you"

Not directed towards you. Just been on my mind awhile. My wife does that a lot to me. Says thank you all the time for any and every little thing I do. It is like I need to stop whatever I am doing and acknowledge what she did with a you're welcome.

Maybe not to that extent. I think it only bothers me at restaurants. Don't know why. It doesn't seem like such a big deal but it just drives me up the wall.

I wish banned profiles would be deleted entirely, meaning their FS prints wouldn't show up in my wanted page.
