Yes, picture editors help with this a lot.
Yeah, my picture was a 16 mp and over 1000 x 2000 px.

Add an option to report a user. This could help with deleting spam accounts, I noticed you could report a spam post but not report a spam account...
Two years ago I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Last year I knew stuff about amphibians, reptiles, water, and more experiments, yay again!
Now I'm learning stuff about oceanography, fossils, and writing/following instructions, yay for the third time!

Usually if you report a spam post the user is going to be taken care of as well.

Really? I've seen quite a few users on the Happy Birthday list that are obvious spammers but don't have any posts.

I have never left....I am always watching.

Also in the event of the hidden promos just make a list and send it to the Administrators group and it will be taken care of.

Spam accounts are often used only once, at the time of registration and posting. We'll at least delete any spam posts, but their accounts are not always deleted. You may notice a large number of birthdays on January 1, and a lot of them are spam accounts that haven't been deleted.

Perhaps make the search better? The +[query] is supposed to denote "a word which must be found", but it still says "The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words:". Y'all probably have no control over this since it probably came with the phpBB, but... It never hurts to ask, does it?

One thing that's really been irking me is the links on the test exchange. Namely, when I click on the link, it changes the page to that document.

I believe that instead, the links should automatically open a new tab, so that opening multiple documents is easier (i.e. image gallery, test, answer keys, etc.)
I realize that this is possible using right-clicks, but I think that it would make more sense for the links to open a new tab by default.
