I know this has been brought up before, but in this new wave of media power and the new site i thought I'd bring it up again.
We've all heard the "click for better colors" or "ns kills the colors/quality" and that's because it really does.
Here's an example,
a screenshot of a picture in the photo section on the right and it clicked on and blown up on the left
click for better quality...
I think we need better quality photos in the photo section and media & farts.
It's fine to have lower quality in favor of load times in the other forums, but if the website is going to be media driven photos should be seen at their full quality.
