I notice on other sites that some have said “if you don’t want to talk about politics, what have you got to hide”? Like there is some sort or requirement to talk about it, especially on RPG forums. Meanwhile, these people probably don’t even talk about politics with their parents, siblings or neighbors. The other thing that drives me crazy is the gotcha game, where everyone is looking at what everyone has said on social media back to when they were teenagers to see if they said anything offensive. If so they should be permanently punished, because we know nobody matures from the time they are 15 to 30, give or take a few years. I find the maturity to discuss politics online to be lacking so I don’t want to have anything to do with it.
And this is pretty much why I usually check this forum on a daily basis (sometimes more), and why I only cast my eye over the rpg forums once a week (often less).

Just too much political chatter infecting everything these days.

I'm glad that the most intense it gets here is the OSR vs Storygame topic, which is really nothing in the scheme of things these days.

Let's hope it stays this way :thumbsup:

It would be a much bigger deal if I could remember which side I'm on.
Heh heh that's exactly how I feel!
(We would be no good over at RPG.net or The RPG Site!)

The only CHiPs spinoff I ever wanted was a show about Pain...

I'm not sure what the exact size limit is (Appparition probably can answer that), but I've run into the probem before. My solution was to upload the file to Archive.Org and post a link in the Resources forum.

So I was trying to add a PDF as a resource here (1.08 MB) and was told the file was too large. Does anyone know how to reduce the size of a PDF? Or what the actual limit is? Inquiring minds want to know.

Most likely shit out of luck. PDF doesn't do lossy compression. It's not an image file. If it contains embedded graphics you might be able to replace them with lower resolution images. You may or may not have software capable of doing this.

The other alternative is to induce the mods to frig the limits to allow bigger files.

It's all text, although I do also have a copy as a Word document, but I have no idea what kind of frigging might help there (I'm assuming that frigging about is the appropriate technical term here).

There's probably not a lot you can do short of trying to edit the document down until it's less than 1MB in size when printed to PDF or maybe find a change to the layout that saves enough. PDF files are already compressed. I doubt there's anything short of a radical edit, finding some other pdf generation path that does it more efficiently or maybe lucking out on some layout change that brings less baggage into the file.
