Post Size Suggestion.  0   
Hey there, I´ve noticed that short posts use the same space as longer ones. Now, I don´t know if it is a default size, which when you write more then a certain number of characters it expands, but it continues the same if less then that especific number is achieved.

My suggestion is to make the post window size as long as the actual content. That would help threads which have a high number of posts, making them much faster and practical.

I hope you all understand what I am saying here, quite difficult to explain. Thumbs Up

hi there fodz, i dont think there is a limit but i do remember somet about admin saying as long as the post is not to short, so i usually try to make my post as long as i can without oing on. But as you know im not very good at it and go on and on and on lol

yeah fodz i know what your trying to say, threads become much longer to scroll through even though the posts in that thread are not very long and i agree that if they could make the box the size of the post it would be much more practical.... good post fodz.... again Thumbs Up

I see what you mean..That would be a good idea..Like if you want to read the rest of what a person says than just click expand Thumbs Up

Again, nice idea by our own thefodz, Thumbs Up yes it could save some space and scrolling so it can help out a bit. unfortunately, I have observed that in order o do that, the avatars would have to be re-positioned.

That extra space is because your data is written on left side and i cannot see another way of putting your name, info, status and shorten the window, in this form of forum client (which is default). And as i see it is not the size of the post that make load time but all those avatars and smileys, and pictures but they are rare.
Look at the size of window of my short posts.

I dunno if its just me but like the short posts..the long posts scare me away cause they take too much time to read.

That is true indeed, the avatars and additional member information is really what dictates the minimum space. I know that any changes regarding this matter takes a lot of time and effort, but of course it can always improve and save space.

Well, it was just a thought, since I see many posts with a large space not being used. Thanks for the feedback.

Will it help to add a setting so everybdy can decide whether or not they want to see avatars? If you disable avatars, then nobody will be shown with avatar in the forum, it might decrease your loadtime a very little bit, but short posts will be able to be maybe 50px less tall (the height of the avatars) ?

If you know what I mean.

I would really like that as option because i dont look at avatars at all and if i want to read someones details i open users profile, so i would like if you could, while youre at it, make optional to display country, member since, age, and posts. Maybe good/bad post icons too add to load time, if so why not change those to +/- signs instead and make entire forum in simple look. Each option selectable separately, i dont have trouble looking in plaing text if its separated with brown headers. I dont know in practice but i think load time would be shortened significantly if avatars and smileys are disabled, post borders are default.

Some things cannot be presented in short sentences. There are examples of stupid long posts but most of the time they are long for good reason. Dont take this as critic.

Admin, I think it is a great idea and option. Those who want to see the avatars, will see, those who don´t, will not.

Well, but there isn't a way thet bankrollmob forum expands to a larger width???

I mean the whole thing so we could have more space whithout the necessity to turn off avatars....

I Like avatar becouse i can say faster whoose post is it hehe

We are already working on expanding the width of bankrollmob, but this will not make the minimum height of each post any less smaller.

It will also still be minimum the approximately 200px height due to avatars and such.

And yeah, I like the avatars too - when people (including me Big Smile ) doesn't change them too often .. then it's usually easy to remember who the poster is just be looking at the avatar in less than a second.

Ok Admin, thank you very much for the reply. So it seems that brm is going to become a bit more wide I see. Thumbs Up From the picture posted, I imagine that the new icon will toggle the avatar on/off. Nice! Keep up the good work.

Alrite, you got it Smile

The new setting to disable avatars has been uploaded to everybodies Mob account edit-page. It will work when I upload the new forum changes, maybe later or tomorrow.
