Graphic Size ???

If your members post very large graphics and pictures does it slow your board speed down?? It seems you stated once before that it did but maybe I misunderstood.


Thank You

I am not speaking of the number of graphics or pictures but the size of the pictures. I know I heard this in the General Discussion section several months ago but just wanted to make sure I was correct on what I heard.
  I am sure that not every post on your board contains pictures and graphics. Just the size of the graphic is what I would like to know. Thank you though I do appreciate your answer.

I dont think it really slows your forums down.

Well I do remember the mods here saying that too many large graphics would make your board go slower. There was a discussion in one of the threads where people were complaining about their boards going to slow and the mods told them they had checked their forum and that they had a large number of huge graphics on their board that could be slowing them down. I just want a mod to verify this but thanks for your answer.

Graphics in posts won't really affect forum speed. What really slows things down are the images or the flash content on the portal all trying to load all at once.
