I just bumped up the max image width for image uploads to 1280px.
Later tonight (9pm-ish East Coast USA time) I'll be rolling out new code to support responsive images in the smartbuydisc.ru.
There may be a few hiccups as the transition is rolling out. Every smartbuydisc.ru post containing an image will be automatically edited, a process that could take a few hours to complete. During this period users might experience strange behavior editing posts that contain images.
The new responsive image code will be aware of the user's screen size and give the browser a choice for which image resolutions it wants to fetch. At the moment every browser gets the full-sized image which is very inefficient for mobile users.
And yes, I know this site sucks ass on a phone. We're working on it and this is a step in that direction.

This should be done and ready.
Going to test some possible issues with GIFs/PNGs

I've noticed that I'm having to scroll slightly right and left on most or all of the topics that I visit. I think this is new, but I'm not sure. As a user experience, I wouldn't say it's super disruptive or anything, but I'm wondering if this is the expected behavior from this change?

I'm going to switch back to a max of 800px soon. The switch to 1280px max has resulted in some unintended consequences and complaints from users. 800px max works for everyone.

^ Instead of 800 pixels, how about the 1024 that is currently in place?

I'm one of the dinosaurs who looks at this site on a desktop computer and the difference between 800 vs. 1024 is noticeable on a full-size computer monitor.

I agree 1024 seems to be a good compromise. I also visit on a laptop

It's been 800px max since Feb 18th, not 1024px. I'll think about 1024px wide max but I'm not leaning in that direction. Convince the moderation staff otherwise and I can certainly switch it back.

Images should support the conversation in a topic. A picture is worth 1000 words at 800px wide or 1024px/1280px. In my personal opinion, larger than 800px wide doesn't make for better quality topics or discussions. I think they tend to distract from the conversation by taking up much more screen space.

We don't want ADT to be a destination where people come for photos or to review photos. The switch to 1280px max width brought some unintended consequences. To he honest I should have known better and been aware of what had already been going on for years right under our noses. Higher and higher resolution images tend to skew the conversation towards the photos. We don't want ADT to be a photography site or a place where people share high-quality images sourced from subscription-based websites.
