It seems like a humblebrag because their pictures are too big?

@kgirl91:  People don’t understand that the site resizes them for them. It may look huge in the window when they’re typing up their post, but once they post it’s fixed automatically.

I was thinking the same thing… whenever I post a pic it just automatically formats to a certain size. If I tried changing it the whole picture looks funny so I don’t bother.

Yep, it’s annoying! (But the thread about the pretty girl who hates that pretty people get treated better than others? Now THAT was a humblebrag.)

The website does resize the images to fit on the forums, but I think girls mostly apologize because some people don’t have fast internet connection and it can really mess with their computers and cell phones. 

 

I have apologized for large images before on a thread when asked to share a picture of something that the OP asked for just because it takes up so much of the page. I have a 17.5″ laptop screen so I know when things even appear large for me, it’s even larger for most people. 

I don’t believe that the posters do this to be annoying, but moreso because they actually do feel bad that it may slow down connections or take up a ton of scrolling. That’s all. 🙂

@kgirl91:  I don’t understand how it’s a humblebrag but this is a pet peeve of mine too. 🙂 I wondered if my cheap a** laptop was just magic or something because all the pictures look fine to me.

@kgirl91:  They don’t just resize them, it’s also that our typing window is SOOOOOOO TINYYYY

@Chrysoberyl:  my small photos are perfect for my tiny, delicate fingers. Anything bigger would be too much. 😛

@Chrysoberyl:  The typing window size is more of a tech issue and isn’t something that the mods can do. The page layout is a massive code and it’s pretty intricately put together, so I’m sure it’d be easier said than done.

 

However, if you post something in “Ideas” (found at the top left of your page) and make a suggestion, I’m sure they’d bring it up and try to work something out with the tech team! 🙂
