Oh Hi... Edit

So I'm Darkorb (or Alex to normal people) and I'm most commonly lurking around on the patch mirrors page.

I currently run the patch mirror that is which is a very busy mirror - topping out around 40TB/month and over 50,000 unique visitors in January 2010. I take requests on patches to host so if there's anything you want on there hit me up on my talk page.

I currently play on EU-Shadowsong with the following;

Jeddia - lvl 80 Night Elf DK
Jedditaa - lvl 80 Draenei Paladin

I have a couple of other random lowbies but those don't get much use...

Oversized Image Fixing Edit

I'm currently going through all the oversized images and fixing them to be the correct filesizes (e.g. under 500KB). If the file is a PNG that has a good reason to stay a PNG - like the use of transparency - then I drop the colour depth to a reasonable level. If the file doesn't have any good reason to stay a PNG I will convert it to a high quality JPG which saves a lot of space without loosing the quality after which I'll fix up any links to the old PNG and mark the PNG for {{speedydelete}} as it will no longer be used.

At this moment in time I'm not touching animated GIF's, those are a pain in the backside...

If your going to be adding a batch of images and want them optimized before you put them up hit me up on my talk page and I'll gladly do the converting for you.
