Photo hosting?

Postby admin » Wed Apr 19, 2006 12:51 pm

WeBe asked earlier today about how to post photos to this site. The answer currently is to upload your photo to one of the many photo hosting services, then make a post linking to it.

I could install a photo hosting/sharing system on this website. The cool thing about this is that it would allow us to browse through everyone's uploaded photos, so a large number of WNC related photos would be in one place. Is there any interest in this? This would be a free service. If many of you are interested, I'll set this up.

If you have the capacity to host photos without additional costs that would be great. Hosting services such as photobucket (and others), also free are an option for users also.

I have a photo bucket page, but wouldnt mind posting here. Only if it didnt cost you any extra tho admin. No sense making you pay for us to post pictures.
It isnt the mistakes we make that count. It is what we do to fix them that matter.

This would be a nice thing IF others do NOT do like they did in the other forum. That is steal pix from other albums to use against others. That really got to be a boring problem and I had to use the ignore feature over it. Noone I mean NOONE has the RIGHT to verbally abuse another as took place in the other forum. I have to apologize to everyone because I was as guilty as others for doing the same thing.If others were as adult as they should be they too would apologize to the room for their behavior. It was such as this that helped destroy the other forum.

Thanks for the input everyone. I run my own web server with capacity to spare, so it's more a question of time than cost. Based on the replies so far, I'll plan on setting up photo sharing next time I have a slow day.
