Don't you find it really annoying?

i think it is.. because it makes the thread to be a lot longer that it should and it takes more time to look at different pictures..

maybe try to erase the allready quoted would be a really difficult job..

but i think that it would be cool not doing it anymore..

sometimes is pointless.. just to say "hey nice pictures thanks".. you can said that without quoting the picture.. no?

Actually.....

ยง2.10 Use quoting carefully
Quoting should only be used if it is absolutely necessary to repeat what someone else said in order to understand your post. Never quote when you are replying to the last post made to a thread. You should always edit your quote, so that only the portion you are referring to is used. Do not quote pictures. If someone posts to a thread while you are composing a response, you will be warned and given a chance to edit your post if necessary.

It's tough though.

^Right. And sometimes people are asking questions about them. It's is much easier to quote the one you are talking about than describing........um, the one with Bob holding a cigarette :wink:

I would agree that it's overkill, but Dylan pics are like Dylan songs - after 100 times you still find new things to appreciate.

Here's some quoting overkill - Click below and look a page from the "post a pic of yourself" thread. Nothing against RevolutionInTheAir - he seems like a good guy and he looks cool climbing a mountain - but come on people! :o How hard would it be to quote the post and remove the photo, and just leave "I climb mountains"

Click and then start scrolling down -

It doesn't bother me but I can see how it would be a pain in the butt for folks with slower connections who gotta wait for all those pics to load.

Yes, but those tight-arsed folk don't want to pay the money for a decent connection... I have a mega-fast connection.

I blink my eyes and the page is loaded... I sneeze and a concert has been downloaded... I have a little 'me' time and... well, it get's messy from there!

I want your connection! I've got the money, I'm just not in the right spot.

A rather drastic move don't you think? Move across the pond for thicky's internet connection?
Still. If you have the money I'm sure he'll work something out.
thickboy? Can you be bought?
