    I tried to download some vehicles and levels and the links are broken in most posts.

    Something like a max of 10MB should be fine for 1080p screenshots IMO. It shouldn't take too long to load and it won't crash your browser.

    or people can do as tdev had already told us to do. Upload as thumbnails, it won't download the full image until clicked

    Ok, thanks to lack of common sense, i removed the 'attach as full image' from the posts. There is no reason to have it not as thumbnail. This should fix the problems without setting an artificial limitation for images

    Hmm, pity, I liked that function. I just posted some screenshots in 2880x1620 resolution, but they are 250 KB each. Maybe a file size limit for the full image link?
    Also, another small thing; multiple times now when I upload some files, the upload bar gets stuck at 100%. Not really an issue as the files were small and I was able to upload them again, but it not how I think it should be :)

    For the sake of loading times and bandwidth usage I'd still like a size limit to be in place. If people aren't willing to take the absolutely tiny effort of making sure their images are even the littlest bit compressed they just shouldn't bother uploading. As AR162B pointed out, even 1 MB is more than enough for high-quality 1920x1080 screenshots, so anything over 5 MB is just a waste of memory. Even the standard 1920x1080 screenshots the game outputs are under that limit.

    (Hope that this will be fixed!)

    Yes, it fixed itself... Starting to think that the school wifi might not be friendly with the new forum.

    Changing group settings causes all the threads in that group to be deleted, I can't find them anywhere.

    The only changes I like is when games get updated to be better and more content gets added, graphics and physics gets improved, etc. But yeah, I hate any other changes, like these new forums. I like that it's faster and uses better software, but I like the old look more.
