uploading pics??

Chris & Kim,

what does it do when someone uploads a bunch of pics? Does it take away from the site or no harm done. Also, any idea if it makes it easier on dialup folks if they open a thread with links to photobucket, etc rather than a link that is full of pics (locking them up)?

Just wondering.

The restrictions were loosened on both classic and modern, I'm going to tighten those back up. It's supposed to be 2 days registered and 6 posts, right now, it's looser.
Guest posting on Classic is supposed to be no links, no photos and no off-topic. I will be tightening that up too with what I'm working on today.

Doing away with classic view and making folks register with a day or so wait will prolly take care of a bunch of trolls since they mostly come from within the group anyway.... Keep up the good work...

Well, I keep putting it on the back burner, but one of my goals is to get tractortown replaced with a YT Photo Album so people can upload a mass of photos to their own personal album, and then reference them from posts.
It's not that difficult, just needs a couple of weeks without trolls, updates, spammers and the other stuff that wastes time. That will certainly provide the capability and I'll be sure to include a new batch referencing tool from the link into the posting forms. I like that idea.

I see, you mean a batch load. I'm behind the times I guess, I have never seen that, but I can see how it could be done, like you specify a list of files on your computer to load all at one time, hit the button and the load takes off? Is that the idea?

I meant without going back and loading each one. No big deal at all.... If I have a bunch, I'll stick with a host and link.

Thanks, Dave

On Classic View, I think there is a limit of 3 at a time. That is a throw-back to the old days when one photo was a big deal, I could change that.

On Modern View, I don't recall putting a limit in there, you can just return to the "Upload Photo" in "Advanced Posting Options" and keep uploading them. That software may have a limit of post size that could get in the way if you had a lot of text and a lot of photos. I think it's fairly high though.

Thanks! I always felt bad about posting pics because I thought I was robbing space from something else.... Any chance of loading more than one at a time or am I missing something?

I'm going to mix up your questions in trying to answer this yet cover all points.

We upgraded the servers sometime back to make sure we had the space for photos. Storage wise, it's not an impact. From a network standpoint, photos tend to take up more bandwidth than text of course, but again, keeping up with current technology makes that less of a problem.
As far as uploading versus photobucket (edit:, "links" to "uploads") uploads, the YT upload is preferable, not for efficiency of YT resources, but so that posts don't have dead links later on. With photobucket and sites like that, people upload, post the photo in a forum, and then after awhile, delete the photo on the other site (or forget about it and lose the account), rendering a meaningful post often meaningless to people searching for answers later. When the photo is uploaded to YT, we try our best to make sure it's never deleted.

For the person on dial-up, there is a large impact. By turning off photos in their browser, they can save quite a bit of bandwidth. The problem is that many sites (not YT) have gone to using graphics to represent real content, so when they do turn off photos, some sites will be unreadable. On classic, there is an option to let the forum software do that for you. With that option on, all embedded photos are presented as links.
Related to the dial up issue, uploading the photo to YT won't lock someone up, we downsize the photo file size to a quality good enough for the web. By contrast, when people upload to photobucket and that type of site, they may unknowingly upload print quality photos from their camera. These are excessive in size and that will lock up a dial-up user when embedded in a post. A simple photo may be a major download for a dial-up user and take several minutes to load.

Hope that covers all the questions and then some.
