#1: Uploading Pictures Author: BrotherTankLocation: Ontario PostPosted: Mon Mar 26, 2007 3:06 pm
I know that many of you have asked for the ability to upload pictures to the forums, and in the past have had to use third party picture hosting sites or sites that aren't always available when people read the messages.. Thus there are many places where pictures were entered into messages and now fail to show.... I know we have the Image Gallery, but I now have a new option to offer... One that will make things Much, Much easier...

Many of you don't see it when you post a message, but the Admin and Moderators have been able to see this option and have tested it to make sure that it works... So now I will offer the option to the membership as well. We have our own "Upload Picture" option in the forums.

Those that ask for this option to be Enabled for their account will be given access to it - subject to the rules of the forums.. So... If you would like access to this feature, please post a reply, asking for it to be added to your profile/account.

I am doing it this way so that we protect the forums from those spammers that are still attacking the forums on an almost daily basis (You have no idea how much help the moderators and other admin have been in helping me out with protecting / blocking / and keeping this place safe). We don't want these people to have access to the forums and instantly have access or the ability to upload pictures...

So once again, if you would like to have access and the ability to upload your picture that you want to display in "posts" or "threads" within the forums, just post a reply to this message saying "Sign me up" lol... "Give me access Please"... " Make it so Number 1" or whatever nice way you'd like to ask for it to be enabled... I'll check and update the list daily (until my next operation - not schedualled yet so don't worry)...

And any violation of the forums rules against profanity, porn, etc... will result in the loss of access to this feature...


So... Who wants it?

I'll turn it on... but please don't post like daily shots or things like that. Post what you really need - Not everything because you think you can... see below... Smile

@All: We still have to respect that this is the "AreYeP.Com" site which is hosting these forums for us. While this option does allow you to upload pics to the site, it doesn't mean go crazy with it and abuse it. It will not allow you to just upload a pic without it being part of a post. So we won't be hosting your images for use elsewhere. You also have to remember that MCS pays for this and we have to respect that Areyep.com is his first priority... So if things get out of hand... Too much bandwidth... Too much space... etc.. We will have to turn it off... As I said above... And lets make this the rule....

Posted Pictures MUST be Wolfenstein/Spear of Destiny related!!! - Post what you really need - Not Everything that you might want to show. - Basically Don't abuse the Privilage! - Images are limited to a size of 320x200 pixles Maximum Size - and 75k in size limit (after the forums converts them to it's storage type) - By that I mean, we don't need to see daily or weekly shots of some game you are playing or making. Pick the very important pictures and post those... Don't post say like 5 different ones saying which ceiling do you like best sort of thing.

The idea behind adding this feature was so that you could say start creating a new game and post say the Title Screen and a couple of screen grabs that will give the members a small peak into what you are doing. Or you could demonstrate a bug that you have. Or you could show a new feature that you have created/coded. To give you the option of peaking their interest. If you want to post weekly and/or daily pictures or things where you take a screen shot and say should I change this or that... Post those to places like Imageshack or the like.

I hope that makes things much clearer. Basically, be responsible and respectfull, as without the generousity of MCS, this place wouldn't be where it is! He allows us to use his space and bandwidth... So we all need to be respectfull of that. Also don't forget that you have the other option - which takes up much less space - and that is the Image Gallery from the menu....
