    I've had enough of the stupid image resizing thing implemented into these forums. [​IMG]
    Sure it's nice that it stops stuff from stretching the page, but most of the time it shrinks pictures that wouldn't stretch the page on my resolution anyways.
    Also, I have a plugin to shrink images myself that I use all the time, and whenever the script here shrinks an image I've already shrunk it crashes my browser [​IMG]


    So please, can we get an option to turn this thing off?
    It's really annoying when I've loaded a 40 minute video and gbatemp crashes my browser [​IMG]

    I tried to read your post, I really did.

    It's a bit annoying for me too. Before it loads, it shows the full image size and then it resizes.

    Just use AdBlock to block the javascript file that does the resizing or use Greasemonkey to override it.

    I don't think that opening it in another browser will work. I'm pretty sure that it`s the server.

    well lets have an option for enabling it and disabling it on the pic itself. that would be great, having the ability to shrink big pics so you can scroll past them, but also being able to make a pic bigger is awesome too..

    Down with that horrible function [​IMG]

    (You could make it an option or make a skin that features image resizing, but spare the rest of us the horrible image-garbler, please.)

    I have to agree with .TakaM, I really HATE that function...
    If the picture would at least expand in the same window instead of opening a pop-up [​IMG]

    The function should stay with this added. Won't be too hard to implement either.

    I suggest to remove the image resizing feature completely, but make big pictures appear in something like spoiler tags.

    I'm in favor of a smarter feature.. that resizes the picture only when really necessary [​IMG]

    I remember how annoying it was when someone posted a big image and it distorted the whole thread..

    Maybe, this could be disabled by default but enabled on the control panel if the user wants.. don't know if those things are possible..
