Bullpen Imagery is No Longer Allowed

Home - by - February 21, 2013 - 16:00 America/New_York - 30 Comments

The very next day, and despite my rant yesterday, and despite a big warning on the submission page that no images above 250×250 should be uploaded, I see this-  648×864

    We’re commenters for I Own the World. Ergo we are unruly. If you give us an inch, we take the pixelated equivalent of a yard.

    Your bullben. Your rules.

    As it should be.

    That was me. I’m sorry. I had no idea that it was too large. I won’t post any more images, but don’t punish everybody else.

    Dumb questions:
    1) a link to a website is OK, yes?
    2) a link to a video – WHEN FOLLOWED BY SOMETHING (so the vid doesn’t show up) – is OK, yes?

    I didn’t mention any names today, and I didn’t yesterday, either.
    It’s not important and I don’t hold grudges.
    If someone as valued and loyal as the “offender” can slip up then it means that we can’t have that feature.
    I can’t monitor the bullpen, and if I don’t the database can get way too bloated.
    Awhile back I offered the position of Bullpen Administrator to someone who felt like they could have fun doing it.
    Maybe that could include watching out for the database, too. I dunno.

    Links and such are fine. Links to pictures are fine.
    Video links are fine.

    I’m trying to figure out how Stirrin did it. Your rant yesterday was like reading the ‘Troubleshooting’ guide for my Gateway 20 years ago.

    Step 1. Click on Sub-atomic file in Cache file of database subset and you should be OK.

    After the initial shock of learning of my transgressions, the next question out of their mouths will be, “what the hell is a big fur hat?”

    I’m just amazed you could fit a picture of Mooshell in a 648×864 format.

    @ Mr Pinko. I think you should no longer be fired, ever. In the interest of self esteem and political correctness, you will be Fur-Lowed.

    Man, instead of bringing gum for the whole class you had ours taken away too.

    You gotta get your bike from the bike rack some time. See you after school.

    Why not overlay an ad on the image so everyone has to buy some viagra before the image is shown?

    @DR Galt – If you look closely, you’ll see that her super hero costume is made of industrial strength Spanx. That’s how.

    About the image.
    It’s not Supergirl, not Mrs Incredible, definitely not Wonder Woman (it’s not a woman).

    It’s a yeti, it’s a Wookiee. No, it’s MAGNA MOOCHE !

    Here’s the pic I shouldn’t have uploaded.

    I took it because of the sticker that says “Pro Choice / Choose Life”. Really? Had to grab the camera and snap it.

    After getting it into paint so I could circle it I read the rest and found a beauty – “You are what you eat / Go Organic” the beauty is I snapped the pic right as the bag from Jack in the Box was being handed to her.

    I thought it would be fun to point and laugh.

    BFH doesn’t hold grudges?…he’s a better man than I… If I went with that policy, half of my entire reason for living would be gone (the other half is equally divided between midget porn and scotch)

    I must be doing something wrong. I’ve never seen a way to upload a picture and I’ve never seen a picture in the Bullpen, just linked articles.

    The photo option was nice but not completely necessary. Since a link to the photo will work, I see that as a better option than goobering up the IOTW database.

    I was surprised that we (speaking for myself) were allowed to upload any pics at all. I’m not used to being treated with such generousity.

    I almost let slip a couple with too many kilobytes. Could have been me instead of Stirrin.

    We don’t need the pics, but thanks for trusting us on a trial basis, BFH.

    Since you are running the site in WordPress, try looking for a plugin that will automatically reduce the size of the image…
