    yes, I think Rob is trying to sort out a solution to the whole picture thing - he wants to get rid of the tags so that we cannot link from another source and eventually get red x's (which is a really good idea), but also wanted to save loading time with the thumbnails

    seems as though many are against this however, there really hasn't been a statement of what is going to be done yet, but something probably will be

    You guys, I must be the only person here with this problem...

    When I click on any thumbnail to view it normally, it doesnt load? All I get is a little icon in another window that opens up that shows that the picture didnt load. Ive tried it for every thumbnail on the site and I havent been able to view any normally...even ones that I posted. What am I missing?

    Im all for the thumbnails as long as I can actually see them normally eventually :)

    Every page sent to your browser is sent with a MIME (multipurpose internet mail extension) type field.
    For most pages, the "type" is "text/html", images are generally sent as "image/jpeg".

    When you click the thumbnail, the image is sent with MIME type "unknown/unknown", so your browser doesn't know what to do with it.

    I gather that IE just opens it in the window anyway (probably by examining the downloaded data itself).
    Mozilla-based browsers (Netscape, Mozilla, Galeon) asks you to either save it to disk or select a helper application to open it. The response is browser-specific, and depends on your settings.

    I hope this is something that can be fixed in the vBulletin forum settings, because I really don't want to tell my browser to try to open every unknown type in "xview" (photo viewer).

    The other vBulletin boards I frequent use full sized images, so I don't know if thumbnail expansion MIME type is a setting, or just plain broken in vBulletin.

    I don't imagine it's one of Rob's top priorities, just yet. (I'd guess that sleep is Rob's top priority at the moment. ;))
