Sheldon spent several hours last night installing some important updates. Thanks Sheldon!!
:arrow: Maximum image size. Attached images now must be 500 pixels wide or less. The height is more generous, at 1000 pixels max. I believe if you try to post an image bigger than this, that it will rejected. This will save a lot of work for our moderators, who spend a lot of time resizing pictures. Special thanks to Silver who I think has re-sized more images than any of us! I haven’t tested this size restriction feature yet, let me know if there are any problems. Large images that are “linked” in are not yet restricted, but may be at some point.
:arrow: Sheldon’s made it impossible for automated forum sign-up by spamming websites, so we should see few if any new “members” signing up just for the sake of putting in spamming website links in their profile. Most of these sign ups were done automatically by computers, and that is now impossible. Sheldon also deleted over 200 of these fake members from our ranks. Since some of their websites were truly horrifying and inappropriate to this site, we’re very glad to see them gone!
:cheering: Thanks Sheldon for these updates! If there are any new problems that pop up because of these changes, let me know!
