I think it's 10MB.
40 10MB is maximum upload
living in the 70's there still Sandy (aka 2010)
I'm pretty sure I've had it fail a couple of times with about 14-15MB.
No, you are right,
it's still 10MB here.
It's going to be 40MB on the new server we migrate to in a few weeks which is what I just configured last week (we can upload video on that one and it will also play in a a player )
<never argue technical detail with Sandy - he has photographic memory and brain the size of planet>
Ok thanks guys 40MB is pretty massive compared to WZ, 1000Kb was WZ limit.
Is there a limit to how many pictures per post? And WZ had a 1024 pixels on the longest border, I would imagine it would be similar here too?
No Sandy was right, it's currently 10 - it going to be 40 after the upgrade.
No width or height restriction, just the file size.
20 per post is maximum.
re: Images on this forum
What happens is this;
Upload images get processed by kracken.io to optimise file size but width and height remains same.
Then on display, we use a 'Dynamic Image Server' called imgix which resizes images on the fly and cuts them for either desktop or mobile.
In this way, the original image is never lost or degraded and over time as screen resolution changes we just change the setting on imgix service.
We also 'lazyload' images so that on mobile performance is fast.
The imigx service adds 50% to the cost of hosting these forums, but it's worth every cent, you should try an image heavy thread like todays "I really love my dog pic" thread on mobile phone.
You've heard of the dark web where horrible nasty content exists ?
On this forum there's a place called DJOTD.
Newbie from WxZone - is there an earthquake/tsunamis & associated stuff thread?
Reading this thread makes me realise where my subs really go and the value within.
FB group? Ha
There has been several over the years, not sure which section they would have fallen within.
Try the advanced forum search here
Also for a different set of results, try the site search which uses Bing - its' very good but can not see threads in any of the Apres topics. That site search link above searches earthquake - several results there.
If you find any of interest - simply post a comment and this will float it to the top of active topics and myself or one of the mods can move it to the new General & World Weather section.
And thanks for upgrading to Gold straight out of the gates
Is it ok for non-alpine snow in places like the Northern Tablelands, Kaputar, and QLD's Granite Belt to be discussed in the Subtropics subforum, or would you prefer it in the Snow section of the forum?
I also have some pics from my snow chases I did while living in Armidale for Uni (2009-2011) too.
Sweet baby jeebus!
Seabreeze, if it's the same people that are traditionally in the NE NSW/SE QLD thread, I think the same forum would be fine. It's relevant to the region, which is how the forums are split up at the moment (rather than weather types, which might have people jumping around more than we're used to)
Yep I just moved a bunch of old cyclone threads to the new tropical forum. If you find old threads that should be in one of the new subforums, drop a line to any mod (or just report the thread using this button
) and we'll move it across.
keep it in the right geo section - us regulars will find snow no matter where it's posted.
With the new geographical locations subforums, I'd say it's about weather there, and if that includes snow in those locations, I reckon it's fine to post it.... It actually makes sense to post it there.
Realistically, unless there are date and location specific threads (e.g. Obs 10-14th July resorts snow, etc) you can probably post any weather related info in your geographical area sub forum
Oh and I should note that I used the Windows "Snipping Tool" to get the report post button graphic ... so easy, just use snipping tool on an element of the screen- then press Cntrl-V to paste that graphic into any post ... Simples!
ok ill stop now.
Bites me on the bum whenever i upload an iphone pano because they tend to be 20 - 25mb!
You might be needing another Weather moderator!
stay on topic
You are so neglected, life has been cruel. But it’s ok, we can stop the hurt Just as soon as we get that new server in place.
Ha! Shucks mate.
@Richard I wish to upload a BluRay. Please fix.
It’s gunna cost you that long overdue ‘fishing trip’ invitation with the boys on the boat.
ha ha, if only it were mine to invite
Done (almost missed this in the pace of this thread)
You've done the time, now you can do the crime
I joined in 2005 as Toboggan but my username over at WZ was Homer.
Any chance you can change that please?
Richard is paying extra close attention at the moment,but a good tip is to actually tag him as @Richard. That way he will get a notification that you are trying to say something to him
Thanks for the tip.
It's a Friday night and I didn't want to bother him as he has been more than helpful already.
I was happy for it to just happen whenever he had time.
It’s like magic
Note: your login username is now Homer
I like the Idea of uploading a picture straight from your computer and I'm impressed with the no loss of image quality, but who has the rights to that picture once uploaded? Can it be deleted? Can anyone else access it?
Of course I can still use an external hosting site.
Ok Homey, you got me, I’m almost please Eddy takes photos
Richard, you have been an absolute effing beast dealing with all us WZ'ers.
Thank you once again. Your efforts will never be forgotten.
For the record, it appears that ski.com will become the favored choice of most WZ converts.
For that, you should be congratulated.
And it's great to see you back here again too Dave.
Best weather forum on the net. Period.
Some of us have been here 20 years for a reason.
And please let it be known Pow that even though I haven't posted in 15 years of being a member, your efforts have not gone unnoticed by us lurkers.
I'm happy to now be a part of the family.
Thank you IAN D
I have been investigating this site
but one concern.
Weatherzone will delete their server or bin it. Does the archive site rely on the weatherzone forum server in any a
way. I noticed the weatherzone URl appears when you load an archived page
In time l will check it out.
Yep, I use to be WZ alongside ski.com, then jumped to theaustralianweatherforum.com which still has a good Vic group. But you cant beat the ski.com for weather, sport, anything and a but of snow stuff.. not like I ski anymore.. kids.. grumble.. old..
I think it's been echoed by all here when said; we're stoked to inherit the brains trust of WZ forums.
It will be the silver-lining in the demise of the WZ forums.
That faster speed will be awesome. The EC Rapid 1 hourly GIFS i have been wanting to post currently are too much to handle.
i think the wayback machine will still require us to go through and specifically archive some of the sections.
we're probably best to make sure there is an snapshot of all the important threads on a specific day, for ease of use.
And, to be honest, they deserve it.
Fossils I think is the word that comes to mind when it comes to that forum.
I'm really hoping it will be a big boost to ski.com.
I think it’s going be a boom for us here. WZ’s loss is Ski’s gain.
I’m happy you have all made it over here.
Another welcome to the WZ peeps
and a big to @Richard for both your attitude and skills
You’ll get back to it...
