Letters to the Four Gods
So we're really behind. We'll get our act together, promise! ;;=^_^=
Hello! I have nominated my site b4, ~Jenn's Fushigi Yuugi Page~
I was surprised about the review cause it really wasn't that bad. One of you
gave me a 5 out of 10!! Well..i thought that was nice of you :) Well, since
geocities sucked i have moved from there and i am now at fortunecity with a
new layout and stuff. So please review my page!!!
[ Byakko ] : Well, we generally don't do re-reviews...but maybe if we have time ( You can SEE how slow we are ;;=^_^= ) we'll do an update on our review for your page, okay?
Subject: Real Thumbnails
Remember Byakko said about that well the reason some of us webpages do that
is because it takes up alot of MB space
[ Byakko ] : Okay, let me handle this one. =._.=
Okay. Now how do I put this....?
That. Is. A. Load. Of. Bull. Crap. =^_^=
" It takes up a lot of MB space" doesn't cut it with us , because we know
EXACTLY how things work when it comes to making homepages. Thumbnails do NOT take up
a LOT of room compared to the original images - *twenty* 5 K thumbnails take up the same
space as *one* 100 K original sized image.
All four gods have been around since the
good old days when free homepage providers only provided...at MOST...1 MB of storage.
And yet, somehow, we managed. ( I assume you're using a free homepage provider - if not, well,
getting one ought to solve the "storage space problem" mentioned, right? =-_-#=
Really, people. Fake thumbnails are a discourtesy to about 99% of the people viewing your page,
since it will either slow or STOP their browser. You want people to look at your pages, right?
Then be KIND to them and make fake thumbnails!
Or at least split up the huge image galleries into
MANY pages with only a few images apiece ( remember: a rule of thumb: NEVER have more than
150 K of images per page. )
And don't even think about telling me,
" It takes too long to make thumbnails/ it's too hard to make them / I don't know how." The simplest way I've
found to make thumbnails is ThumbsPlus .
That program will do the work FOR YOU. ( plug, plug =^_^= )
if everyone wants us to stop whining about fake thumbnails, but you claim "not to have enough space"...
a) get a free account from Geocities ,
FortuneCity , Xoom ( if you must =-_-= ),
or Tripod to have the space you need...
b) Get ThumbsPlus and make those
End of story. Sheesh, you can't fool us with "technical computer-type" excuses. Thumbnails only
take up a few kilobytes...say, five K. And if you have a megabyte of storage, my higher math skills tell me you could have a TWO HUNDRED
thumbnails. I doubt anyone needs that much. So if you need twenty or thirty thumbnails, that's just 100 K. You
still have 900 K left for pictures and all that text, right? =-_-=
Meow. =^_^= Byakko just doesn't
take the heat very well. I'm supposed to be the nice one, right? ;;=^_^=

I have an offering for the Four Gods. ^_^
Ano... it's interesting, that's for sure. Maybe you can make some sense of it... hope it doesn't give you indigestion!
[ Byakko ] : Oh boy. Yeah, we're doing this one. =>_<= Thanks for nominating it!
