Posted:Under the photogallery section let people put in links to pictures as opposed to uploading them so if people have hosting elsewhere they can post more pictures then the size limit allows for. Also some people who have pictures in the gallery but have hosting elsewhere may be nice and host their pictures on their own space so you would actually save space and bandwidth.

Posted:Astar,

Malcolm is quite busy so I will give some thoughts.

In the bulletin board users profile there is a space for putting the url of the users website.
I know a number of users already use that just for a link to a free hosting site with their pictures and also that gives a lot more ability to add a story about them and additional information. Good for finding work too.
The link appears everytime they post and also in their profile.
They can also add their link to this Web Ring

From a pussy cats purr-spective I say it would be better to use those functions and only place your better pictures in the HOP gallery.

Posted:How often do people look at profiles? I doubt very much.

Atleast put a link to the persons profile in their picture gallery.

Posted:I look at profiles all the time. It's the easiest way to find out who everyone is.

Especially now that many people are changing their screen names....

Posted:Astar,

Thanks for the input.
I am going to try and integrate the password files for the bulletin board into the picture gallery as well as adding links to and from the gallery and BB. It was a total nightmare getting the picture gallery working in the first place so I have been avoiding it up to now.
I love reading profiles as there are many great people in here.
Also as you can search profiles you can see how many accountants, electricians, builders and bakers etc are into these arts.
Also good for seeing peoples birthdays too


Regards

Malcolm
