How long would you like me to wait before I delete posts that do not use the lj-cut?
We established early on that as community that showcases pictures frequently, we'd need an lj-cut policy. And I want to be fair because I know people don't spend all day on their computers so they might miss all the comments asking them to correct their posts.
So what do you say? An hour? 12 hours? A day? How long should I give someone to correct their post? Also, if your post is deleted do not feel bad. You can repost again as long as you correct the mistake. I always feel bad when I have to ask people and some folks are new to livejournal so they don't know all the codes yet. If that's the case... check out the livejournal FAQ
or ask a user. We're nice, I swear. And once you learn it, it's not hard to remember. Photobucket.com
is a hosting site that lets you easily resize your photos as well. Most hosting sites have a resizing option. Check for that option at your site. Mods only have the power to delete posts, not edit them so that leaves me with two options: let the posts stay (which slows down everyone's internet connection), or delete them.
Before I delete it, I'll send this response (or something like it):
Sorry to be a hardass but this post isn't following the community rule:1. LJ-CUT IS YOUR FRIEND.
Your friend is helpful for large photos and photos that are not worksafe. Use your friend if you are posting more than one photo, or if there is any nudity/obscenity in your photos.

Feel free to post again after correcting this. Got any questions email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Right now I've been giving people a few hours or so to fix it but I will
start deleting posts. It's not fair to the group and by joining you agreed to follow the community rules. I will say this. If you post a picture with nudity/obscenity without a cut, I'll delete it as soon as I see it. Those picture MUST get a cut. A lot of people check their pages at work, school (or with noisy parents).
Conclusion: Please please use the cut.
