The drafts with 10MB file

Dear students, once again. If you send your thesis draft, please consider a smaller file size. Sometimes we want to download, read, and review them on the go, but your files are way too big, they make us lazy.

Trust me, just because your curves and graphs are all fancy with bright colours and shades, they don't impress us so much that we give extra credit for them. So don't waste your time fancy up those tables, flowcharts and what not.

And this is not just us. Some journals don't even want colourful graphs in papers they would publish.

  1. Thesis/Dissertation's draft? You should have seen a 17 MB job application letter.
