As most of you have noticed, we have recently added a feature that allows all of our members to upload a picture when replying to posts.

Us mods have definitely noticed a change, because we have had to delete or remove images left, right, and centre.

Unless your image is extremely relevant to the thread, please do not upload random photos to the thread. If the thread is asking for pictures of, say, teddy bears - than you can upload a picture of a teddy bear. But if a post is a good luck post for sally, then it's not relevant to post a picture of yourself when you reply to say good luck, is it?

You should also remember that hotlinking pictures is also highly recommended, since it takes up less room on the ddn servers.

The disco forums have ample places for you to post pictures of yourself. In the rest of dance.net, no one usually posts the same picture of themselves over and over. Here, however, it has become normal to post the same picture on the good luck forum, the photos forum, the results forum, the solos forum, the advice forum, etc, etc...

Uploading irrelevant photos into every post that you reply to is called spamming, and is against the rules. I have had to go through members profiles and delete over 20-30 posts because they have the same picture in every single post. Having an avatar is the way to put your picture next to every single post - not by uploading the same picture over and over.

If a member continues to break the rules, they will be banned.

People use pictures to express themselves they don't always think of servers and such they just think a picture is cute so others might think like wise..It's a way of sharing.Not a bad thing.

Hi,

Really useful sticky. I have got this feature i use it sometimes when i am giving someone an avatar to save me uploading it into photobucket lol i just use the new feature as it's easier. It is annoying and i do know someone who uploads a different picture on every reply they make and it isn't even to do with anything the post is going on about lol.

I don't think the mods have noticed yet though lol.

Rated this though it come in use and was handy for me to read even though i don't upload a piccie in every post.


Love Sophie x x x x :D

Hi

*Sigh* and still it continues I find it so rude when reading a post congratulating someone or about their new costume and there are random pictures of people in with their little bit of text.

It seems to be the same people all the time too which means they aren't even taking note of the mod reports that they must recieve about the ones that have already been taken off.

Hmmmm is there no way we can have this Sticky Flashing at everyone who comes on the boards and until you have acknowledged it you can't look anywhere else.... Nope didnt think it would be possible lol.

Take care

Also its quite annoying when someone makes a board like, do you like my new costume and people post pictures of theirs, its like a competition of costumes.

Hi, Unfortunatly I've just put a photo up on congratulations page. I was hoping it would be a small one next to name but it turned up HUGE. I tried to edit comment to remove the photo but to no joy. Any advice ?
