# 404 wide front pages
So, if you are not allowed a front page that image that is 404 wide. Why is there an image on the current B3ta front page that is 404 wide? Is this some kind of confused conspiracy we are watching here?

# Yes, there is. And it's a post by none other than Clay here.
I don't think we need to look any further to see who the "mystery mod" is...

He'll delete this post immediately. Or he'll leave it as a double-bluff. Either way, it proves it's him.

# Hunt the mod...
Clearly it is the mod who posted the illegal image on the front page that we should hunt down. If the mods break their own rules then we have no hope left for society.

# the front page is designed for 400 wide or less pics
I was humourously/cheekily enquiring why Clay made them too big when they quite rightly get put up there so often (which requires resizing either in html or potatoshop which is surely less preferable to the original artist doing it).
Nothing mysterious or weird.

# Serious?
Errr... did you really think this was as serious post? I just thought it was bloody funny that you spotted the 404 image but failed to spot the mods breaking their own front page rules.

Look on the front page. Currently there is a Clay image posted un-edited at 404 wide.

Laugh man. This is what this board is about is it not?

# you're too sane for this site
I messaged rob about the post editing (if theres an ip editing trace on posts like wikipedia) and asked him to delete my proflie/login whatever . ability to ignore a poster is one thing but having someone internally edit my posts is too much bollocks now I think on this site(either happytoast has this power or a mod is matey with him did it, either way it's crossing the line)

# I can see your post that you said got altered but what exactly has been added
I can't see anything that's out of context with your statement.

But I do believe that HT was giving you just some sound advice and was complimenting you by saying it was FP-worthy (which it is).

# Eh?
Get the mod who edited your post a bollocking, but don't let it make you leave\delete a profile. This site needs madness like yours. It's what keeps us lurkers glued into this place.

What got edited in your post? I didn't see the change happen. Certainly out of order if your words are changed without the mod explaining why.

And please stop calling me sane.

# Do you really think Rob is going to bollock a mod?
They'll be laughing their tits off over this. This isn't some corporate website with paid employees, it's a forum for funny stuff. I really don't think Rob will do anything he has more sense that to get involved in petty squabbles. What he will say is quite simply "You have an ignore button"

# It;s bizarre
th e posters saying I should calm down when they seem to care more about this than I do. this started when someone got irrate after I posted a image 4 pixels too wide for the fp? :)

but I don't think post tinkering should go unnoticed. When someone can do that and I can't prove it it's a battle I can't win and I can't be arsed fighting it hence the deleted profile request. it's clear though the posters coming out the woodwork just to throw the shit for the hell of it so its pointless saying anything else about this.

I take it you got the pm earlier about making more money for the charity then...never mind eh

right I'm off to play with my 3 year old, the sanest person I know

# So it's not possible that everyone else is right, and you're being a precious drama queen?
Blimey, Clay, I like you, but you ARE taking this much more seriously than anyone else (HappyToast included, although it's a close-run thing).

And making gratuitous references to (unrelated) private messages doesn't exactly help your case.

# my mistake today
was apparently posting an image under 100k which was 404px wide ◊ 1,917pixels long!

so far there's been no outrage about the 1917 pixel bit!
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 18:20, archived)
# 1917
There is no complaint about the 1917 length as that is clearly not long enough. surely there must be a "too long" rule in that FAQ somewhere.

And I don't see what the fuss is about. 404 just means you are going that extra 1% to make us laugh. Which has clearly worked. You've dragged a lurker out of his lurking to look confused at all the comedy fuss.

I think you should now rotate your image 90 degrees and post it again.

All new front pages must now be posted rotated at 90 degrees?

Ideal to confuse the phone and fondle-slab brigade as they will get confused rotating their phones to see your image the right way up.
