Hey Dispatch, what's up with the crappy little unreadable maps, graphics, and images?

the best place to prospect for gold in Ohio is the Statehouse...
Ask the lobbyist, and labor unions....

Real Americans All.
I salute you.
Gold and Silver are the ONLY Constitutional legal tender. As stated by the same paragraph that prohibits a confederacy and ex post facto law.
article One section 10. A law worth fighting for.

Next time a panhandler puts his story in your face tell him to get a pan and go work in the river.
He will be a better man for the effort.

You try clicking them, then report back here what happens.

At least on my computer, they expand. The map, for example, expands about 3-4x larger. Apologies if they do not on yours.

No, a tiny little window opens with the same tiny illegible map. Not just this article, but nearly all Dispatch images and graphics.

Weird. Often the photos do remain the same size, but usually (again, at least with me) the graphics expand nicely as the map to this story did today. You're right; as they appear within the stories they are usually useless...I have no idea why some graphics would expand on some systems but not others. Good luck to you.

Sweet bejebbers, did I just witness a civil conversation (Off the rim & Big Johnson) on WBNS/topix? Dayum, there might be hope yet - well done you two.

Quite simple, really. We confined our comments to the article. I don't make it personal until someone else does first.

By the way, what happens when you click on a Dispatch image?

Big Johnson - Don't have the slightest idea what happens when a Dispatch image is clicked. Never had the need to do so.

I clicked on the map next to the article just now and it displayed at full size in my browser OK. Maybe it depends on whether one's using IE or Firefox (I'm using Firefox).
