A possible solution to the photo overload?

For meme entries like “fsjal”, there is too much content, ie. way too many photo submissions. So I thought I would suggest a possible solution that might freeze less browsers. It’s just a thought as a (future) web designer/developer:

That… is a good idea! The only problem is that sifting through 1263 fsjals 4 at a time would take a while.

That would take too long to see all of them though. There could be up to 25 on the main page, then you could click on a “See More Pictures” button, carrying you to a collection of all pictures for an entry, 25 at a time.

probably 20-25… the concept is pretty much the same

i don’t think anyone would want to go through all 1253 photos… they’re just derivatives.

I’ve tried to see them all, but my computer slows down too much.

that’s why I suggested this. it freezes my browser (google chrome) everytime i visit the fsjal entry

And, as we all know, it’s so fun to go into taskmanager and kill it.

Jamiedubs has mentioned the need for pagination of images in the past. I don’t think we’re going to get it just yet, (that guy’s got a LOT on his plate) but we’re aware of the issue.

If you’re running a developer build, you can add --purge-memory-button to the “Target” section of the shortcut (icon) to add a “Purge Memory” button to Chrome’s task manager. If you press this before clicking the link, you can load the fsjal entry. It still takes forever, but you’ll be able to free up enough space to load it without having to kill any tabs.

Yeah, this needs to be fixed. The paged interface would be way better than waiting for all the images to load. I can’t even load the fsjal entry on any other browser besides Chrome.

I know it does load for ever… I posted this image as a recommendation =)

how about now? I know its 12 but it looks better =)

possibly some Javascript/ AJAX (for the webdev minded) would do just fine so that it doesn’t need a page reload. And possibly some jQuery (also for the webdev minded) for a cool transition?
