      While I have seen seen changes prompted by job insecurity, I've seen equal amounts of other incentive.

      For instance, I've seen a LOT of changes that are made to satisfy the ego of one or more programmers who insist that the change is THE right way to do it.

      I've also seen changes made to satisfy customer demands. These are usually introduced as new features but sometimes they surface as bug fixes. When you have a lot of customer prompted changes, you can sell it as a version upgrade.

      The most useless changes are often made because a manager reads in a trade magazine that there is a new super tool or technique that is being used by a big company like Microsoft, Google or Amazon. It becomes a mandate to catch up with the big guys. A similar track is followed when newly graduated college kids want to use the same tools that they used in school. Businesses seldom recognize that the tools taught to students are designed for learning the concepts but are not necessarily great in real life. An example is learning ADA, Pascal or Basic. More modern examples is implementing Ruby as a programming language despite the version to version incompatibility.

        Actually, it was David Dwyer's images that were uploaded small size. Rich's five images are huge! But the forum software reduces them to fit the screen, like this (which I inserted full size):

          After all, Basic stands for "Beginners' All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code". It first appeared, according to Wikipedia, in 1964. Surely no colleges are now teaching it. ADA? Pascal?

          Long ago (33 years ago, to be more precise) my son was a highschool junior and testing to get into an AP programming class taught at the community college across the street from his school.

          The test was to write a specific program in Pascal (ick), which he had never tried.

          So he wrote the program in C, added BEGIN and END, handed it in. He was accepted.

          There are no stupid questions. But there are lots of stupid answers. This is the internet.

              Paul

              Now i am really confused .
              I just posted again on the Eureka Thread and the same thing happened ????????
              I hit "Upload"" and then selected the picture, and when i do, I have no option for picture size.
              I have posted maybe 50 photos since this site was upgraded a year or so ago , so I am somewhat familiar with the procedure
              this is a major change to me
              But again...I get no option for size and ONLY get a Thumbnail with the digit "1" next to it
              When you say they are HUGE ( ref #18) , do you mean file size, or Image size on the page ?
              Your pics in post 18 are Huge , when I see them , but my postings are not ????
              Rich

              Let me add something , The "Upload" tab is not visible on my comment screen as it use to be .
              In order to get it, I must click on the Camera Icon in the upper left corner next to the paper clip ......
              Then the "Upload" tab appears on the bottom of the page,
              Is yours like this ?

                Is it safe to upload directly from your computer or best to use a service like Imgur?

                    So from what I see you need to use the “upload attachment” to size pics and to show up big in the post.

                    Using the “upload” only gets you the small thumbnail and can add text.

                    I am pretty sure that I had the same issue with having to hit the camera icon (which brings in “upload” not “upload attachment”) and not seeing the other option but now I can. Again I am on mobile, not desktop.

                        Yes, perfectly safe. That's what I do.

                        As mentioned above, use the "upload attachments" button just below the text box.

                          There is a "paper clip" icon above the ribbon, which is "Upload Attachments" according to the tooltip, but it seems to just toggle the buttons "Upload Attachments" and "Upload from URL" below the text area.

                            yes, perfectly safe. That is the only way I do it.

                              Pardon me fellows, But you are not listening !
                              There is NO "Upload Attachments " Button just below the text Box !
                              There is only a paper Clip and a camera ABOVE the text box .

                              Now tonight, when i posted on the Eureka thread, it was back to normal withe the button below the text box

                              So I am getting two different posting functions ????

                                I just checked all the posts in this thread by Rich Carlstedt and nowhere did I see a mention of what operating system or web browser he's using. It's up to the web browser to display things for the user. Rich, Are you using Edge, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Samsung Internet or something else? Are you using a cell phone, and if so which one? Are you on a PC, and if so, which operating system (win 7, Linux, MAC, etc). These things would help narrow down your problem.
