Hey guys,

It just occurred to me: Why don’t we have the option to set a SWF instead of JPG on our profile page?!

I mean the 590×242 jpg with our profile logo. Wouldn’t it be great?

What do you, administrators, think?

Cheers, Martin

This has been discussed several times. I believe it had something to do with security if Im not mistaken..

i’m actually against it, you’d get some half hearted buggy profile pages that would look awful and potentially lag / crash the page, the devs wouldn’t want that… or you’d get music / video played when visiting the profile page which also isn’t too cool… I can’t see them ever doing it to be honest with you…

Oh man, having that would increase the bandwidth of the site by TONES ! I understand them to be honest. Imagine if everyone would have FULL HD 50 megabit videos … that would be a HUGE pain, just imagine Oxylus with a 5 megabit movie, and 5000 clicks per day… add that to your monthly cost.

Well it could use an upload size limit, so that’s not an issue :p

Then authors could stream the vids from a CDN , so filesize limit wouldn’t be an issue etc.. :)

The bigger question is why is there no flash anywhere on the site other than the previews? I ask sarcastically.

^ Because FLASH is bad. I don’t like it – the less we see it, it’s better.
