I wonder if technically you’re looking forward when looking at the rear view mirror. :D

please make it easier to post photos. I have given up trying to post photos from my Mac. I cannot get past the stage where the image is too big no matter what I try.

For technical reasons, such as the amount of space they take up, slowing the pages down when loading, etc, many forums have a size limit on attachments, often around 1mB and most people these days take photos of 2-4 mB; I know I do.
I just resize them.

But at the moment, this forum is letting quite large ones load. This example of BMW Parking is 3.2mB.

What's annoying though is that in order for it to display correctly, I had to rotate it a full 360 degrees and save it before it would show the right way around....(in doing so, it became 1.8mB) :roll: :lol: :roll:

Once in a while I toy with the idea of getting a phone with a camera, then I think no,my wife loves doing things like that. No point in having a dog and doing your own barking :wink:

Hopefully the new board (if the decision is to have one) will automatically resize any large pictures that are uploaded, in the same way that Facebook does.

Rmweb did a message board upgrade recently. It's had a few teething issues, but it's much better than the old one. Uploading photos is now much easier.

With any technology, I'm very much in the "Yes, presuming it doesn't make it harder to use!" camp...

Make my phone better and simpler.

Make my modern car better and more functional, while easier to drive.

Improve my Minor's slightly rustic behaviour, without losing its character.

That sort of thing...

That said, naturally, no-one actually sets out to make thing harder to use... it just sometimes turns out that way, thanks to the Law of Unintended Consequences.
