Just a little note to uploaders. I see this a lot of this in the ObjectDock, Misc Icon, and other libraries.
There is no need to include the preview image in the zip file. Nobody needs it, and in some cases it's much larger than the actual icon. Also check your zips for "Thumbs.db". It's of no use to anyone.
I notice this stuff, because I'm on dialup, and it does nothing but slow me down when in the Moderator queue, I must download file after file, that contains these extra bits.
A good example.... today I downloaded a submission for testing. It was just over 300kb...... no big deal, but inside the zip, is a Thumbs.db, over 100kb. (I've seen cases where the extra stuff was twice the size of the submission) 100kb here, 50kb there, and before long, it starts to add up. Which brings up another point. This past weekend, we had a server problem. Submissions weren't getting through, because there was no more disc space on the upload server. I wonder how much space is being eaten up here by these unnecessary files.
Anyway..... just a friendly reminder.... be kind to those of us on dialup, and people with download caps.
