Image posting, uploading and linking

3.4. Not only traffic is a major cost component, a big number of visitors are not on high speed Internet connections; please help by not uploading in the forums more than 3 photos per day if you are a Silver member, 5 if a Gold member and 10 if a Platinum member.
Silver, Gold and Platinum members may link to their Nikonians gallery for an inline image to appear in a post in the forums. In forums direct uploading, the image can be up to 900 pixels on the longest side and 150KB file size; so the medium size version at the gallery should be linked if the full size original exceeds these parameters.
All members may link to images stored on external servers. These will appear as links rather than in-line images. Out of courtesy to fellow members we ask you to please warn about the size of the file being linked to, e.g., www.mypics.com/image.jpg (245kb) or by at least typing: “warning: big file.” Remember: When a large tree is coming down in the woods, there is always someone shouting: “Timber!”
Also, we suggest you limit the number of image links in a post to a reasonable number; ideally to only one. Consider that if you post too many links, seldom someone will have the patience to look at them.
