If I have anything to do with it, there will be no restriction and 
people will only see big pictures if they want to (good news Mississippi).

I have seen lists with voluntary restrictions on size, and it's a mess 
if enforced, most people have no idea how big things are, most of the 
rest can't scale down a picture. If not enforced it works fine, people 
can live with the occasional multi-megabyte image.

The whole "size" thing is something from computing in the 1980s. Not 
relevant today (even less tomorrow).

On the PBS wiki, we have thumbnails, we have multi-size images, and we 
have automatic scaling down. Let the computers worry about computer stuff.
