*Avatar* picture on wall posts [Implemented]

Postby grifftron on Sun Aug 01, 2010 9:26 pm

*Avatar* picture on wall posts *This could be optional with a hide/show button for those that worry about lag but we were told by the phpBB team that this would cause no lag*

I think it would be cool if when you posted on someones wall, you would have your profile picture show up next to your post, just like when you post in the forum, but this would be on their wall of course.

Image


I think it would make the wall posting more appealing and therefore make CC better ;) I contacted phpBB myself and below is what they had to say about adding this addition... they also said this should not cause ANY extra lag and it would be an over all 5 min job to do.

Images are cached by browsers, so if it's the same images that are appearing next to posts on the board, your browser will not grab them again.

Having said that, there may be good reasons not to do this (such as larger avatars pushing the cell apart and making the overall page longer). Increased load is not really one of them, however.

Please keep in mind that phpBB is opensource, meaning that all of the code can be changed to do... anything.

Why would you ever want to do that? I can't really think of uses for it, except for misuses..

What would be the misuses for having your avatar show up on walls? That is what i meant, not actually posting pictures on the wall... it would be like facebook, myspace, twitter style with the avatar next to the name of the poster.

Not sure, but i think it is known that if a a page has more pictures on it, would cause more lag, as it would take more time to load up the avi pics.

Since a wall only displays like 5 posts at a time-ish, and given the small size of the pictures, I don't think it would take too much of a difference given in contrast what all else the site is running.

I support this product/service. As a all round horrible person myself I must say that I can't see how this could be abused, also I experience no lag when viewing walls, I doubt some tiny image files would make it worse.

Makes sense TFO, but look at this thread and all the sigs and avatars, not slow for me, so imagine a wall with 5 posts and 5 tiny pics, shouldn't be too slow..

and if people do like this and it does happen in the future, we could always have the *hide/show avatar* button on the wall for those that don't like that extra lag.

I am not in favor for this. My laptop barely works with my router in my room, and running anything is gnarly in that condition. So add some dumb pix to the mix and I'm not going to be happy. That needs to be put as an optional feature if it's put in place.

Don't forget, I'm pretty sure the wall is generated by phpbb3, and so would be limited to whatever developments they have for it. I could be mistaken though.

same thing that the forums are ran by? if so, one would think they would have an easy add on for something like a picture?
