i’ve been advised that you can now disable ‘lazy loading’ if you dislike fuzzy images. is this true?

I actually got fuzzy pictures for the first time in a while today. This was while loading the random pics thread in a very weak LTE area of the plant i was in.

Literally every other time pictures load normal.

I don't know. I was not aware that was an option, because once again, The Overlords have made the site worse without stopping to think if anyone would like it.

It's all a bit hollow to say "Yeah 100% of what we do to this forum is awful, but don't worry, YOU as the end user can be responsible for (and able to!) mitigate at least 80% of it."

Food for thought: Not on any other forum i've ever been on (and i've been on many, you should see my inbox around my birthday), have i had to jump through such hoops just to make it usable. And then despite all that, not on any other forum i've ever been on (and i've been on many, you should see my inbox around my birthday), have i seen so many HTTP 500 errors, or just general blank page loading.

Basically what i'm saying: Almost everything you guys (i don't mean YOU specifically, you seem like a nice guy and i'm guessing you have no authority at all) do to this place is trash. We would all much appreciate it if you ran that up the corporate ladder, maybe with a suggestion to get a nice handle on the stability issues long term (it has been at least 5 days since i've gotten an error, so that's nice), and maybe less emphasis on "enhancements" that not a single actual breathing meatbag would ever ask for.

I'm getting them everywhere. My internet speeds are as they should be, and i am not experiencing fuzzy pictures on any other website.

Robb M. disabling "lazy loading" seems to have worked, thank you.

i appreciate your forum community experience and empathize with your frustrations towards what ‘we’ have done here over time. today’s changes were introduced here first because i had hoped they would address the main things i have been hearing here.
Hoping whatever is up with images this evening is isolated.

Nope it's there. I can perform the act of editing, but when i click save changes, they do not save, and i am left with my original post.

We are the sandbox, but our litter comes pre-shat in.

We are the dogs finding the tasty nuggets within.

Really? It's pretty common. Example: https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/misc.php?do=bbcode

What code do you suggest I use instead?

The code tag is already in use. It
Code:
encloses stuff in a box.
Doesn't work for inline formatting within a sentence.

I am now getting spammed with thread notification emails for posts that are multiple months old.

Please make it stop.
