Can we increase the size limit for graphics? 100k is awful small.

I'm for that---forever squeezing the pixels out of anything that looks decent on my computer--only to have to reduce it to "comic book" resolution to meet the
limit.

It should be 300k now. It was 300k for JPG but not for JPEG....lol

Whatever...this board software is older than dirt, and I am apparently too lazy or too scared to upgrade it for fear it will implode...

Just an FYI Mike....when clicking a google ads link on this site--they don't open in a new window--you leave the site unless you specifically click "open in new window".

Strictly as a test---I clicked on the fine Asian ladies link--didn't return til the next day :D

That's weird. Most of the ads I click on open up in a new tab....although I do see the one at the bottom of the page take you away from the site...thanks for the heads up

The present format color and presentation is just fine.
They're not broken. Don't fix them.
Trying to contact the site is sometimes a problem between 1:30 -2 am EDT.

My Two Pet Peeves

1. Unless you download your own images to a hosting site and size them appropriately (like I try to do), if you post images using the sites default image posting links they come across gigantic, and they co-opt the entire thread so that you have to scroll from sea to shining sea just to read a post. Shouldn't there be some kind of default, so as not to oversize?

2. When you click on that little icon next to a thread that takes you to the last read post in the thread, well, sometimes it does, but usually it doesn't. It often takes me 2, three, ten or more posts away from the last post that I read.

Iíve got another great idea!
Why not perform ALL of the PA Web site maintenance on days when there a limited amount of racing. Like perhaps late Tuesday evenings or real early Wednesday mornings.

When posting live picks in the Selection forum it can become very annoying when all of sudden thereís no access to the site at all. Sometimes it only lasts 5 or 6 minutes, but very often 10 to 15 minutes.

I'm going to guess the hosting site doesn't give him a choice

If the PA site is on a shared server you might be correct, but if its on its own server then there's no reason the maintenance can't be done on more accommodating schedule.

Are you saying this board is unresponsive at the same time every afternoon? What times?
