Signuture and Avatar permissions...

Post by Shining Arcanine »

To save on bandwidth costs, do you think it would be possible to add additional permissions so it would be possible to prevent Guests from viewing Signutures and Avatars?

Um, you can specify limits for both of these. Also, avatars have no effect on your bandwidth if they are on a different server than your board, the same also applies to signitures. If you are worried about signiture text costing you bandwidth, turn down the signiture character limit. :)

I would really love to see a feature that checks the images hieght/width and limits people from uploading say, wallpapers, inside thier signitures. Dunno if thats possible though. :)

What happens when you have uploadable and gallery (while disallowing remote ones) avatars since you want more control (I care about dial-up users) over what users can and can't do with avatars?

Plus, I want to be able to save the few MBs of bandwidth (call me cheap) that are wasted on Guests.

You can specify a filesize and width/height if you are uploading avatars, so no need to worry about that going over.

@Jeroen: Yes, I do use rules, but having to send mods around to warn is annoying. :? A system that checks the image's size width before allowing the signiture to be added would be a great time saver. :)

jeroen234, I care how fast my forum loads for dial up users. Meaning having remote avatars disabled and uploadable avatars enabled is a must. I simply want to be able to prevent guests from eating up more bandwidth than they need to.

FF8Jake, having the server check the image's file size is a bad idea since it can be bypassed by uploading a bigger image in the place of the small one.
