Pet Forum Peeves

I wish people would learn to rotate their pictures before posting them to the forum. They care enough to paint/modify their bike. Don't they care enough to make the picture look nice when showing it off?

Also, brake/break - learn the difference!

I wish I had grown up in the 90's so I wouldn't care.

Guys, not everyone here is a native English speaker. So please cut those of us a little slack or I'll start testing how good you are at foreign languages.

My computer is fighting Aids and Cancer in it's idle time, and yours?

Hmm, since this is a thread about pet peeves I'll say this:

I'm not too bothered about image formatting or English grammar but it's crazy arsed ideas that get up my chuff. Here's just a few stellar examples from the cbr250r library of really cool stuff

1. Highway stirrups
2. CRF450 engine transplant
3. Drilling holes in stock mufflers

4. Register just to immediately sell your bike.
5. Say you "need" more power so you're buying a liter bike.
6. What's the best exhaust?
7. This bike's too slow!

Tis better to be thought a fool and remain silent, than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.

Trust me - I am NOT talking about those for whom English is not their first language.
Mostly a condemnation of the USA educational system over the last 20 years or so.

Rotate your pictures? Should be common sense (and courtesy to my neck muscles) world-wide.

I didn't understand this problem until I got stuck with an iPhone by my employer. I don't know what it is, but if you take a portrait mode photo and rotate/save it in windows...once you upload to a forum the dang thing will rotate itself back sideways. It's almost like there's something hard-coded into the file. I have to take the extra step to strip out any metadata associated with images to make this problem go away.

For forum-quality pictures, I try to always use my digital camera, which is a NBD pocket camera, and is dated, but it is way ahead of anything built into a multi-task device.
I typically run an image through Photoshop (a cheap $10 licensed version that I picked up a long time ago and still works on my new 64-bit desktop!) which allows rotating and cropping easily. I can adjust the light if I have to, but I'm not much good at that, so I try to have good lighting when I take the picture in the first place.

I have a LG Android as my first "smart" phone, and I don't use the camera much. The whole OS and processor/memory package is so bottom-rate, I swear my smart phone is using recreational drugs.

I am young enough to embrace digital technology, but old enough to know what it takes to make a decent image on the display. Or maybe I just care to take the time. After all, I had a darkroom in the basement growing up.
