Hullywood: A second PM has been sent you about our posting guidelines regarding image size.

Please take the time now to review those posting guidelines.

It has been removed again, so it is not showing anymore.

I managed to see it in the meanwhile. The screen was glued on too high up, so a line of empty showed on the bottom of the screen area - and I assume top pixels of the screen would remain under the top bezel.

I have seen two Kindle PWs with similar issues. Layer alignment seems to make the issue more common on PWs than on other Kindles, because PWs have three screen layers instead of one.

Apparently, my PMs are not being read and the previous Moderator Notice has gone 'unnoticed.'

Here is the information regarding images, with the relevant area underlined:


9. Avatars, Images and Signatures

....

Images included in posts must be no more than 600x600 pixels. Individual forum sections, including the Self-Promotions forum, may require smaller images. Please read the Promotion Posting Guidelines for specific information. You may use a picture as a link to a larger picture elsewhere.

.....

Two moderators in this thread give conflicting info. Would it be possible to get the specific offense? HarryT said the fixed image was compliant and it seemed that to me as well.

There is more talk of moderation than PW screen issues in this thread, it would be great to have specific guidance. I understand that rules are meant to protect the topic.

Well as the post by Dr Drib is taken from the forum posting guidelines:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/faq...ng_guidelines.

I don't think the guidance can be any more specific than the underlined text?

Don't post images bigger than 600x600 pixels.

It would be nice if the mods could just wrap over-sized images in spoiler tags so you have to click on the spoiler button for the image to appear, and send a PM and ask the user to make the image smaller. But that's possibly too much additional work for mods who probably have plenty of other stuff to fill their time.

That is what is so confusing. In post #15 HarryT said the picture was properly formatted. This was followed by Dr. Drib in post #16 saying that he sent another PM about properly formatting a picture to post.

Yeah, the volume of missing images in threads lately is fairly obnoxious. I'd like an option to see them instead of seeing a line of green text saying an image used to be there. Spoiler tags keep the layout from breaking, so that would fix the major issue while allowing us to, you know, actually see what was posted. Just my constructive $0.02.

I was wrong; the image was 640x480 pixels in size, which is too large for the forum (the max dimension must be <=600px).

I returned the Kindle and they replaced it with a new one. I actually didn't notice the screen problem at first, it was when I added custom wallpaper that I saw it and it bugged the hell out of me.
