If you wanted people to learn how to thumbnail images, why not do something smart like put the instructions in the first post of the thread? Why does every task on Linux have to entail reading an entire thread to find the information needed?

Because that is the way it is.




If you are using "imigur", and it appears you are.
It is as simple as adding a "s" to the url:

Look at how it looks in code boxes:
Code: Select all
[url=https://i.imgur.com/H7I8nkL.jpg][img]https://i.imgur.com/H7I8nkLs.jpg [/img][/url]


Note, I add the "s" Here:
Code: Select all

You can even copy/paste what I show in the first code boxes , use it in your post , and the thumbnail will display, and link to the image .

it's called common courtesy: not everyone who's looking at a thread wants to be forced to load $RANDOM_NEWB's fullsize images.
it can also destroy page formatting, depending on how good the forum software is at dealing with it.
it also pointlessly creates additional bandwidth for everybody, and, i say it again, they are not given a choice about it.

there's quite many things in this world that require learning new stuff, reading, obeying rules etc.
i wonder how you fare out there...
