I think you’re right! I tried to do the same thing with ChatSonic and got, “Sorry, we cannot process your request. Please contact the support team.”

True that, but what is going on here? Is it trying to be helpful by automatically agreeing with everything it thinks I’m saying? Jeepers, Wally, people come to ChatGPT for information, good thing I’m not operating a nuclear reactor!

PS — The bot is feeling feisty today:

What forum software does PG Music use?

PG Music, Inc. uses vBulletin as its forum software.

I heard it uses UBB.threads

I'm sorry, you're incorrect. PG Music, Inc. uses vBulletin, not UBB.threads, as its forum software.

Except the answer it settled on is the wrong one.

I don't know if we could call this a rule, but a have noticed people are more receptive to graphics that do not take up the whole screen. 900 is borderline.
550 to 600 wide seems a good compromise, landscape format. In today's internet, the tendency is to either mix text, add bold titles, or collage jpgs. People fly through the internet. Naturally, the exceptions prove the rule. If you screenshot a Band-in-a-Box interface, the bigger the better for the sake of ease of reading smaller fonts. Many people take MS Paint for granted. You can easily resize, make montages, and add any style or color of text, along with draw and paint options.
Yeah, I've messed around with it a little: https://www.webdirectory21.com/color/butterfly/index.htm

Ed, another way to enlarge a picture in BiaB is to hold the control key down and use the mouse wheel to either increase or decrease the screen.

On my browser though it's quite likely a webserver behaviour, images above a certain size get shrunk to fit the forum page and I have to open the image in a new tab to get the full-sized version. Whether or not I do that depends on several things.

Test attached JPEG image with large dimensions (3720x2052) but small file size (135 KB),
displayed inline with resizing. This LINKYLINK opens a full-size display.

The link cannot open a full size version on my 1920X1080 monitor, but it looks like it worked fine for you.

With tablets and smart phones came the field of "responsive web design," meaning, the field adjusts itself to screen size, browser, or resolution. There are plenty of templates available, so the designer really doesn't have to learn how it works, but it does.

I wouldn't hire a designer that doesn't understand responsive design, Bootstrap at least
They need to be able to visualize what will happen to their design.

Are there many BiaB users who work from smart phones? Seem that it would be possible.
