cdozo's LJ Cut Poll [Apr. 26th, 2007|01:46 pm]

[The river is |confusedconfused]

While posting in e_moon60's newsgroup over on sff.net, I mentioned that I often make photo heavy posts. One of the folks on my friends list, [info]brashley46, pointed out that I could put my photos and other graphics behind cuts.

Since to some extent I write this journal for other people to read,  I got to wondering if the folks on my friends page, and other readers of my journal, would rather I use an LJ cut when I post images. So I made a poll.

Please tell me what you would prefer by voting in cdozo's LJ Cut Poll.  Comments are welcomed as well.

When should I use an LJ Cut?

Whenever I post a picture or graphic.
When I post a large picture, GIF, or more than one picture.
Forget cuts. Slow connections and dial-up be damned, just post the pictures.
I should just stop posting pictures and use words.

Actually, I just voted for what I would do. What you should do is up to you.

I don't usually make picture-heavy posts. One per is more my style.

Yes. But you gave me good feedback when you suggested it.

If people wish I used cuts more often, I'll try it. If I don't like it, I'll stop using them.

I'm not a writer. The people who read my journal make up pretty much my entire fan base. I don't want to alienate them. :-)

You can vote once for each LJ account you have set up.

I expect votefortheworst.com to turn their spotlight on this poll at any moment.

i don't know!

Carry my lunch.

I don't know what you should do. But if peeps with slow connections are bothered by lots of pix, I say use a cut. it's frustrating to wait a long time for a page to load. What if you used links to a flickr set on the text part, and put the actual photos behind a cut?

use words

Start off with: Imagine a background of pure blue essence. There sits a caterpillar, strong and hungry, green and yellow with black stripes and a tail. His food is leaf, somewhat sticky and aromatic with likely toxins that should cause him quite a bellyache.

You just go on and on. When people realize that waiting for your photos will save them hours of tortuous imagery, they'll be glad you posted photos.
