Although I don't recall the place where the first discussion occurred, this "sticky" thread would seem to be a good place to repeat it -- and I call upon my brother mods, as well as the trusty Admins, to fill in missing details or correct misstated parameters here.

When it comes to including IMAGES in a message you are posting, we've asked DBBP members to do a coupla things:

1. Try to limit the image size. (IIRC, something around "thumbnail" size -- around 150 x 112 -- was the suggested parameter.) This is an act of kindness for those who are still (for reasons known only to themselves) using dial-up to access the internet. (Yes, I know there are many legitimate reasons why some folks don't have broadband access -- I was just funnin' with ya!)

2. Try to copy the image to your computer -- and respect copyright notices -- and then upload the saved image to an account at one of the image-hosting sites on the 'net. There are a number that are available at no charge (for example, ImageShack). You can usually handle the resizing of the image at the time you upload; so yo9u can have the benefit of the full image on your own machine, whicle sharing the smaller version with us here at the DBBP.

As always, thanks for listening, and for doing your part to make this the best baseball forum going!

Notice to all dbbp.org members:

Posts that personally attack or insult other posters will not be tolerated. Differing opinions regarding baseball operations, strategy, play on the field, etc. are highly valued at dbbp.org. We must ensure that all posts address opinions and facts regarding baseball and do not address our opinions about another member's intelligence, character etc.

We welcome your input and baseball opinions. To this point we have only banned two members (both ignored warnings of incivility) and prefer to never see a third occurrence.
