Hey abuse... I could really care less about what format my damn pictures are in. In America's Army, when you take screenshots they save them in "bitmap/.bmp" format. I figure that the format that they are saved it works the best. So if you don't like it good for you. But I could really give a rats ass on what f*cking format they're in. SO DEAL WITH IT!

Good to know you are willing to take advice and positive criticism in a constructive manner.

Jerk.

p.s. you might want to proof read your posts, to make sure they make sense in future.

I make one mistake and you give me shit? I said "it" instead of "in". Oh boy the world is coming to an end. I really don't like it when people criticize me (good or bad) about picture format. I've had it happen on many different websites and I'm sick of it. So from now on if you don't like it, save it as a jpeg and don't post about it. Other people can do the exact same thing.

Both times you missed the n't on could - completely reversing the meaning.

I really don't like it when people criticize me (good or bad) about picture format. I've had it happen on many different websites and I'm sick of it.

If other ppl have also mentioned it, do you think there might be a very good reason?

So from now on if you don't like it, save it as a jpeg and don't post about it. Other people can do the exact same thing.

Saving the image is not the issue, you have linked to a bmp file. That means any1 viewing the file has to download a 1.4meg image. The equivalent image in jpeg format is just 50kb.

For a 56k modem user (which is >65% of users worldwide) 50kb takes roughly 12seconds, where as 1.4meg takes 5-6minutes! Can you now see why distributing images in an uncompressed format such as bmp is :-

a) Selfish toward narrowband users (who make up the majority on the internet) b) Wasteful of bandwidth. (there are some unlucky broadband users who are bandwidth restricted to only 1 or 2 gigs a month) c) Generally inefficient. Converting it to jpeg would have taken you less than a minute, the time saved not only by you (having less to upload), but to the 100s of ppl having to download it - the total time saving would mount up rapidly.

Quote: I could really care less and Quote: But I could really give a rats ass Both times you missed the n't on could - completely reversing the meaning. If other ppl have also mentioned it, do you think there might be a very good reason?

To number one: Actually all of my english teachers through elementry school, and high school had absolutely no problem with the way I would write my papers. I would say something just like that and they wouldn't have any problems with it. I also might add that I lived in one of the best school districts of my state. Now according to your age (I can't be sure if thats your correct age), I'm doubting that you are a teacher. Now you might be a teacher, but from my experience and other peoples', teachers are usually 25 and older. So what you think as "improper english" may not be "improper english". To number two: The reason why they mentioned it was because they themselves were too damn lazy to change format. I also happen to know that they were using cable. Now I'm pretty sure I understand the whole 56k thing saying that I'm training to be a computer technician. They also said that during the shcool year they would be covering the different internet types. I also understand the reason why I should've formatted it to jpeg but I was running short on time. I would've gladly changed the format and all, but when you got your wife telling you to get off the computer because our dinner reservations are ready. You really don't care about which format the picture is in. And dinner didn't go so well so I wasn't feelin all that great the next day. And hey, there you are criticizing me about my picture format. So can we just get over this and focus on the task at hand: Ragdoll/Karma Game Engine? And I'm sorry for being a complete ass.
