RE: [Chrysler300] The test





" A picture is worth a thousand words"  We all know this to be true.  Security issues aside, the server should allow images somehow.  All of us get unwanted email, with pictures, on a daily basis, and it fills up our junk folder, so we deal with it.  I'd love to be able to receive images from fellow 300 members through the server to broaden the usefulness of the list and promote communication between members. This is 2015, not 1999 anymore.  Embedded pictures make more sense than attachments too..

Personally, I LOVE the list server.  I've received very valuable advice, and really enjoy reading all of the comments.  I've also found some critical parts I needed, and made helpful contacts with other members.  So, I consider the list server a very valuable asset associated with being a club member.

 

However, the one thing that has always disappointed me is the lack of images.  To me, it would be so helpful and interesting to actually see everyone's car, project, thing they had a question about, etc.  I belong to two other Yahoo Groups, and both allow it.  Same with a multitude of forums I've visited.  Collectively on those groups we all enjoy visual exchange of information.

 

If images could be included as attachments, if security or speed of downloading is a concern, one could always choose to simply not open the attachment.  For that matter, it takes perhaps a half second to read a subject line and delete the entire email if it is not of interest.  That's a simple solution to avoid overloading inboxes.

 

I see the fundamental purpose of the list server as communication, and as much as I appreciate even having the list server, an ability to conveniently engage in visual communication would make it just that much better, in my opinion.

Speaking as a retired systems analyst, I agree with Bob's reluctance. Bob should continue with his reluctance, and change nothing regarding images.

 

Secondarily, I have enough stuff coming into my system daily without images adding to the bulk. Text take very little disk space, memory and download time. Let's leave things as they are.

Hi Don,

 

You guys are spinning your wheels. Bob or you need to go to the Yahoo Groups and change the preferences to allow jpgs. 

 

I have had this discussion with Bob before and he is reluctant to allow photos for security reasons.

Well, another no go.  Bill will have to give us very specific directions.
