We have a gallery now, issue is its size is limited to 10 MB which is worth little in terms of # of images...

to increase the size of memory available we'll have to pay and i don't wanna go there ...

so our options are ...

1. Remove the gallery cuz we don't really need one.
2. Keep the gallery limited to screenshots.
3. Keep the gallery limited to member pictures.

Voting will close 7 days from now.

I say remove it then. You can always make a gallery thread and put tumbnails in that one. That way all the data is stored on hosts like Photobucked or Imageready and stuff like that.

well yeah ... i would agree ... we already have screenshots sections on the forums and the what do you look like threads ... so no worries there ...

just wanted to make sure the members know we have this option cuz its always been there we just weren't sure we should use them since the storage space we get is so little ...

i never ever clicked on gallery before... but with only 10MB i didn't missed much it seems...
Either should the gallery be made so that it accept only links to photos or there should be a thread for member pictures "in threir natural enviroment". The " What do you look like" thread is nice for joking and knowing each other better but it's not a good picture thread... A nice picture thread (in my oppinion) should be much, much more axed on the pictures and less on the comentaries. Every post in that thread should be with a picture and the comentaries shouldn't be regular posts. There should be an option to comment the pic without having pages of text between the pics... Also those comments should not be counted as posts.

well the gallery link was not open to you all before now since we had disabled it ... in the gallery you can ...

1. Rate pictures.
2. Comment on them.

However, pretty much the same could be achieved with a what do you look like section, with each member having his/her own thread...

I'm now more `n more going against the gallery as there is virtually no way of knowing when someone has posted a new image there (unless you click the link)

we do have that thread but there are more posts comments in there rather than pictures and you have to click and search lots of pages and 2 threads to see THE PICTURES

Forums aren't simply cut to serve well when one thread goes beyond 10 pages, so a gallery would be perfectly fine.
As for the space issue...slap....haven't I told you that when it comes to hosting I can create an account for u on my servers?!
Move the freaking website on a proper domain name/server and you'll have all the database/disk space you'll ever need.

lol we can pay here and get (virtually) limitless space ... about 8 USD per month for 500 MB space .... so that ain't the point ... the point is if we NEED it or not ...

I'm reasonably certain if we start displaying google ads we can generate that kinda revenue based on the traffic we have .. but then it would kill the experience ...

i'm also sure that if we put up a donation box (directly from the hosts) our members would be kind enough to raise that kinda money monthly ...

so the issue isn't the money ... the issue is the NEED ...

I think simply adding a sub-forum called "What do you look like" and making the picture posts into seperate threads we could achieve the same results ... so lets see how that goes ... upto this point the members are voting to keep the gallery and thats ok ... but
1. None are using it.
2. I'm sure most don't know how.

It's kinda tricky to use it at first :))
we should make a tutorial about how to upload pictures on it :)

I for one thought that only admins can post pictures there

well if you're ready to shell out 8bucks per months be my guest. Hope you didn't think I was trying to sell anything.

As for the usage: build it and they'll come :)

lol nah man didn't want to imply that sorry if i came off that way ... yeah a tutorial needs to be made for it ... but i don't wanna work too much with the gallery unless its my last resort cuz it ends up being a separate "forums" nearly ...

anyways ... i'll prob make that pics section soon and well take it from there ... the gallery isn't a priority whatsoever it simply another function :P
