What are the best features of CHB? What are the worst?

So what is the maximum image size that can be uploaded? I know Jay increased the size some time ago because I was having problems uploading stuff but it seems to have been reduced again?

My phone is generating, on average, 4MB files and I've just cropped an image down so it is .99MB but that was still too big.

I'm intending to get back into photography, particularly macro, and was going to start a thread after the stuff arrives next week but I'll obviously have to think about uploading and hosting if I'm going to do that.

'Straya, cunt.
@dkos A thing I just thought about doing if we ever get a fucking donate button. How about doing like a competition with something like a $50 or $20 Amazon giftcard for like the most active poster on the WBF (non-spam) after a year or something? You can announce it on Twitter too. Just shooting out ideas. I mean something small as a way to get more activity, maybe. Worst thing about it is I think it'll bring out spammers.

We can also have a competition using the MS paint bullshit thread that someone made. Funniest MS paint pictures gets some crappy $20 Amazon giftcard or some shit. Just a few thoughts to get this place more activity.

I think doing competitions or something and winning some pity money would be pretty cool. This way you can make announcements on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, whatever the fuck you post and entice new people to join.
It is something I'm already considering. I'd have to see how the ad revenue goes before committing to anything like prizes, but it is something I want to do :good

I think rewarding a 'Poster of the Month' could be fun... :yep
How about having those Sri Lankan kids appear out of the jungle holding a sign up with the ‘Poster Of The Month’s’ name on it :yep

Yeah, this is total bullshit. It really limits what I can put in the wildlife thread. And every thread I guess, but I really notice it in the wildlife thread because i'm trying too put loads of animals in that thread. It's difficult to find ones that fit. That doesn't seam normal or reasonable.

I can look at increasing the limits, but it's only when you're uploading the image to the server - if you copy/paste the image URL, and then we're just serving as a wrapper to display the image without hosting, there's no limits.

No probs, any issues let me know, if need be I can try increasing the limits. If you upload to imgur or something (if they're your own private photos), then the same principle works regarding using the image link.

Yes, I was talking only about uploading locally held stuff so I don't have to upload to another host then link from there. I've since found a relatively easy downsize option in Paintshop that doesn't seem to have much effect on the image quality, at least within the thread at smallish dimensions.

All it means is there is a different additional step in the workflow to getting them on here and one I think I'd rather do than host on an imagehoster site. Obviously, the best case scenario is I just click "Upload" using the original image but I appreciate there may be cost issues with the CHB server doing the storing. And, of course, they're pretty big.

Did they ban you?
Yeah they did, because he continually spammed the forum with weird, shit videos of himself acting oddly, and would just add random drunken posts to threads looking for attention, while then posting more stupid videos. He got a ton of chances, advice, people being cool with him and then finally warnings, but just kept on.
He can be a perfectly decent poster at times, but his obsession with attention just becomes beyond cringeworthy and into the realm of unbearably irritating. I'm sure they'd let him back if he knocked that crap on the head.

So permanent ban or temp?
