Hey Guys,

I've been on a few other message boards and I've noticed they collect pictures of members. I believe there is a feature to post your pic in the profile but its just not the same as having a list.

What do you guys think? I'm willing to put something together if you guys are interested - I think it would be cool to place faces to the names.

Now if we can get some acknowledgement on the front page to increase the participation. ::wink, wink::

I'll let you guys all in on the updates. I'm thinking (to maintain quality) we should request pictures be at least 250 X 250 pixels. Maybe we can also get a personal quote for each person as well.

Any suggestions?

OhMyPixel, I'm game, but I'll have to go through some stacks of photos to find something printable. :)

I would prefer this not done. There would be copyrights and all sorts of unseen and unimagined problems for me to deal with. In fact, I think we need to remove the images altogether. There has been some abuse of that feature by a few.

I know, I liked that feature too.

Unfortunatly, I can't surf every picture. About a month ago, I found some very inappropriate images in a couple of members profiles.

Secondly, there is the issue of someone linking to images that are not theirs to link to. I've received one request to remove a members image file for linking to a copyrighted image that was not theirs to link too.

Neither of those two can happen again on purpose or by accident. Up till now, it's been a wing-and-a-prayer, but with such huge growth this spring, the days of winging it have to come to a conclusion.

Hey Brett, Shouldn't be so hard to allow users to upload a photo?

Copyright could still apply. You could nick a piccy, and upload it, rather than linking to it

Thats a bummer. I really like the picture feature. Perhaps you could recruit a picture moderator Brett?

I'm not suggesting we make a post on this website. I was thinking that I could host them on another website altogether. Guys, I'm still working on it. I'll let you know as soon as I'm done.
