    I noticed that one needs to be logged in to be able to see the pictures in full size.
    I also noticed that this site does not have the traffic as other similar sites have.

    My suggestion to the site administrators is that you allow to see the full size pictures without being logged in!
    This would make the "casual surfing" of the site a lot easier and possibly would lead to to a lot more traffic.

    The required login is needed to prevent picture linking, wich would cause extra load on the server.

    PS this is my opinion, perhaps @jrap and @EETech Adam might have some other opinions.

    Orbanp just saying u can make pix in your blog full-size viewable to guests by choosing _all visitors_ option for entry:)!

    Now for the fora I agree with @bertus cuz even though it can be annoying having to log in or signup just to see pic, I say stop and go response cuz of content leaches strangling bandwidth would be WAY more annoying:mad:!

    Really? Not that I care to know which those similar ones are, but let me say that this site has been very consistent along time. Quality of main contributors an outstanding asset BTW. As a newcomer here I can say so.

    In the five forums (all related to electronics) I signed as a member along time, I never considered the traffic. But then, we all do not consider things in the same way. :)
