Well Dmitry I must congratulate you on setting a record. Twenty-two (22) photos in one post used to start your Fuji thread.
Not that I really care about the shameless plug value of showcasing your own work, but there is one favor I would really like to request.
Kindly remember that many A.net users still use a DIAL-UP CONNECTION with a 56k modem and as such, your "Reference Library Posting" of all your shots all but brings our systems to a standstill. Add in the other photos posted in the never-ending Koduck vs Fuji wars and that thread has now become all but unreadable on my system.
In future, I ask all posters to kindly restrain themselves when using photos in the threads to a "reasonable number" of images to make your point. Us luddites will thank you for this.

Steve ... sarcasm will get you no-where ....
As Sudden quite rightly pointed out, this is an "aviation photography" forum therefore there will be lot's of pics posted.
Steve, i bet if you added up all the times you've showcased all your pics to us it would certainly set yet another record here on the forums

Yep its called ADSL.. and the vast majority of people have Cable rather than ADSL (I know we got Cable because ADSL wasn't available to us)..
I in part agree with Steve, remember this forum was created mainly for critique of photos rather than anything else.... Although I don't think the thumbnails take that long to go, I think its quite annoying sometimes when someone blatently posts photo's just to increase popularity..

Steve has a valid point....While I sit here at home with the luxury of a cable connection I did try to log onto anet while on a NY trip using the dial up in my lap top. For most things it is okay, but when someone posts a BUNCH of photos it really bogs down.
Just to be considerate of fellow users I would think you should post no more than one or two anet photos, or just links if it going to open up using the whole page.
Yes, this site is about photography and discussions of, but we don't have to be a##'s about it.

My cable connection is currently 3.3megabits per second, down some from when it was new. For almost a year it ran at the max allowed of 8 mb per second. But, as it catches on, it is sure to drop even lower. But for now I am still loving it.
I know what Steve means though, on some of the long posts with a lot of pictures in it, there is a delay, and I would not even open one up with a dial up connection...... I think you can get the point across with just a few shots.

Hello Steve and everybody else!
Well didn't mean to slow you guys down any, but I just wanted to make a point about Green and Yellow. And probably to your amazement, I am on a 56K modem my self, no DSL yet.
I actually have no problems loading and reading those type of threads, what slows things down is if the replys aren't compressed, then that takes forever!
Also if people post large pictures, not linked.
