Photo section is good stuff, but for skiing photos. It is the summer, many of the M&A folk have shifted to doing either paid or busy work while killing time for the season to start back up. So threads like post your best photography, critique threads, and the NS Photographers Cult could all use a boost in quality for the embedded photos.
Right now, you have to click to get a decent color/sharpness/quality render, and the resizer is pretty junky, imo. When an image is larger than your screen size, it will shrink down and scale the image, with no way to 100% zoom and move around the image. If it had a scroll option, that'd be a start!
also, I know this is probably related to something I don't understand, but stick with me for a second. Currently, any embedded image, using the [img] tags, links like this when you right click and copy the image link
now correct me if i'm wrong, but with a url like that, doesn't it suggest that the image is indexed through NS somehow? and wouldn't that lead to some major issues (taking images longer to load because they go through ns, and making the site have to deal with a large amount of cached images at some point?) I have no idea, but most sites/forums just have the image linked to the original site.
