Club PA 2.0 has arrived! If you'd like to access some extra PA content and help support the forums, check it out at patreon.com/ClubPA
The image size limit has been raised to 1mb! Anything larger than that should be linked to. This is a HARD limit, please do not abuse it.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Feature request for images...

SlungsolowSlungsolow Registered User, ClubPA
Wouldn't it be nice if people could put alt tags on the images they hotlink. I mean, its not that much to do, it would just involve passing a value through the image tag (similar to something like this bergy.jpg) and then parsing that value as the alt tag when the image is rendering in the page build..

It would make me feel better because while at work I can't really view offsite images while I am at work, and it would help me judge which images are worth taking a gander at.

ya know.. its just a selfish suggestion..

fuck your forums, fuck your administrator and fuck dynagrip for getting away with the long troll.

    I don't, either. I'm guessing it's just a rollover for images, so it tells you what the image is about.

    for those of you not getting it. It would provide a roll over when the image isn't loaded.

    This is something I'd like to see as well, but I doubt people would bother filling in the alt tag, and those that did would almost always be missleading if I know this place.

    of course it would also need to be title="" for the popup to work in anything but ie

    Maybe you could tell images to set their alt tag to their filename, that way you wouldn't have to rely on people using the tag, and you could still get a general idea of what the image is before it loads

    edit: and you could still let people set their own alt tag, and if they don't it will just set it to the filename

    Better yet would be if you could hack it to accept y= and x= parameters for images. Sometimes you want to link that google image search result but it's too damned big and you don't want to resize it and upload it to your webspace and then link it because by then the joke's over.

    Also, mods could use it to fix H-scroll problems.

    The difference between a 1024x768 and a 640x480 jpeg isn't quite enough to make baby Jesus cry.

    Hmmm... I kind of like the idea of x and y coords. The question is how do I want to do it... Client side, definatly. But then the age old problem comes in, how do I allow things like large pieces of art to work while still having limits. Hmmm....

    I have an idea. Unfortunatly, I have many ideas, and this one involves me writing some serious javascript and changing bbcode.php, posting.php and the template files. If someone wants to take a crack at it I will give them the source files they need provided I know the person well enough.

    I'd offer to take a crack at it since it'd be my fault the work was being done, but I'm far too busy, and I'd probably just get bored and sneak in a counter to randomly post goatse instead of the image.

    When someone uses <img> on fark it fetches the image, checks it's dimentions and if it's beyond 500px wide it scales it by returning width and height tags within the tag.

    That's a fairly slow and intensive processs though.

    How many times do I have to tell you, alpha? If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.

    lol, I had forgotten about that.

    It probably helps that you didn't insult the guy, and that the guy doesn't have a strong distaste for your family, and THE GUY IS FUCKING INSANE!.

    Also, technically, I did get the offer. I just turned it down after he wanted to give me like $7 an hour.
