@fullsizeHas the increase in max file size helped you guys?
I'm not sure many members are using the boards image upload function for more than a single post/image. I think one of the main problems is that attached files only show-up as thumbnails in a post. That would be fine but for some reason those thumbnails take an exceptionally long time to load for what they are. If you open the image, grab the image file address and use the tags to post it in the same posting, you'll see the regular image load/display in 1/4 the time of the same thumbnail.
I've read more than a few complaints about that problem and I think that may be causing some users to search out alternative sources for image hosting. The thumbnail timing issue gives a perception of a problem but as noted, the fullsize image displays so much faster that I can't help but suspect there's some clunky coding issue behind it that could be resolved. I haven't coded in decades though... so :shrug
For me personally... I need better image management to find the specific, already uploaded files I want to display without combing through pages of thumbnails to find the one I'm looking for. You guys aren't an image hosting company, so I don't expect anyone to try and address or resolve that issue and I greatly appreciate having the thumbnails option on the attachments page for images already uploaded but in the long term, that's why I keep using free or cheap outside sources, like Supermotors. :whiteflag
