    If you about to post Photos please use the uploader on the menu bar, any posts containing links or offsite images will be deleted.

    This is the only way we can control the content of this site and do away with the dreaded red X's.

    Cheers

    This is a bit off, I take loads of photos at shows and have been posting links to entire albums, some of which have 100ish photos in.

    I'm certainly not going to use the uploader to upload that many photos. I understand the problem with off-site images, but surely links to website should be allowed.

    I guess this means my photo posting days are over

    Pictures in the Gallery section, Links in the links section Please guys.

    I cant please everyone, we keep getting complaints about Red X's and dead Links, so I made the IMG tag only markup pics that are uploaded here, cant do that with links.

    Maybe it was a bit harsh deleting the link, but it had no replies and it was dead, aparently the server doing a windows update but I wasnt to know that.

    Sorry if I offended anyone...again

    Hey Steve I hope you don't stop sharing your pictures with us. I think they are great and I would do the same as you if I were lucky enough to have my own website. Anyway my solution to this is why don't you upload the first 8 images or so of an album and then ask people to follow a link if they wish to view more? You will get more feedback that way and it will make your post more interesting.
    Keep up the good work with your website.

    Hey Clint thanks to you too for a great website and for keeping it tidy

    I wonder if links are still allowed in the signatures?
