Anyhow, I have stumbled upon a program that i have setup for my club that makes it extremly easy to upload, and view photo's. You can see my photo album here at www.420crew.com//z1m/gallery/
The pro's and con's vs. the gallery and MSN are:
Alot more webspace. Up to 500 meg's of space (that is ALOT of photos')
ALOT easier use than MSN (believe it or not).
NO ADVERTISMENTS! (makes it worth it just for that)
True URL's (picture would be www.usmbphotos.com/yourname/yourimage.jpg instead of some long MSN address with a ton of letters and numbers)
You could use your photo's anywhere, show them on the USMB, use it as a personal pic, show your friends and family.
Fully Customizable interface
No Advertisments (did i mention that yet?)
There are more Pro's, but lets get onto the Con's.
Its not Free. its not expensive, and I can handle the cost's unless people are willing to chip in. I'm looking at aprox $10/mo for the webspace and $10/yr if i register the domain name (doesnt have to be USMBPhotos.com, just a 1st idea).
You would need to register accounts through me. Accounts will be free. The usage of the service and hosting and everything would be absolutly free for any USMB member who is an ACTIVE and REGISTERED USMB member.
I cant think of any other Con's at this time. We would need to move all the photo's that are already at the MSN site to the new site if this were to take effect. That wont be too hard.
The whole meaning for this post is because this is something i was planning on doing anyway, to better the comunity, but I didnt want to do all this work if it wasnt going to get used. So, input is best... who is interested?

The cons? Those didn't sound bad to me at all!
I think we should go for it!

Should we think of something better than USMBPhotos.com?
I was thinking of registering USMB.com, and have a redirect that takes you to the board, but have a sub-domain that is Photos.USMB.com for the photo's.

Hey brian would this server be a good place to rehost my site. seperate from the photos. like buy my own, along with helping pay for this. i need to start updating it and i really am not to fond of angelfire.com. Do you have any recomendations on easy to use software for making webpages, where to find them and how much? and any good ideas of how to?
Posted 15 July 2003 - 05:59 PM
Do you have instant messenging? If not, email me and i will clue you in on some awesome software and programs to help make your page easier to navigate and better looking.
I think im going to start on this when i get home tonight. If anyone cares to donate, my PayPal email address is Subaru4WD@Subaru4wd.net
No donation too small or too large. It will probably take 16 to 18 hours to get up and running. As soon as I get the domain name registered, it will become active, but it will take about 12 hours for the DNS servers to update, depending on which part of the country (or world) you live on.
Anyhow.... what im thinking of doing is registering www.USMB.com When you goto that page, it will direct you automaticly to the USMB, but if you goto pictures.usmb.com, it will take you to the picture's page. We could also run a smaller WHOIS page on a private message board, and have it as whois.usmb.com.... or something. The sky is the limit.
Thanks for the support, I dont get off work until 8pm pst, so i will start as soon as I get home. more input is needed however.

the more years you register the domain for the cheaper the yearly rate.
And I also am willing to pitch in funds for this!
Posted 15 July 2003 - 06:43 PM
Posted 15 July 2003 - 09:45 PM
Thats for 3 months of service, and 5 years of domain name.
I should have a page up by tomorrow.

Anyway I had most of the hosting options planned out and already have the licensed copy of vb, just wondered what your take on it is since youve got people signing up for the much nicer photo service your putting together.
Posted 16 July 2003 - 01:43 AM
for right now, there is a temp URL until the DNS Servers update for USMB.net:
I have setup photos.usmb.net for the photo's page, but you will still need to contact me for an account.
John, catch me on Yahoo next time your on. I think for the time being, EZBoard will do just fine. This will make it easier to keep track of active members and share photo's

Let me know if you are having the same problem.

It broke up to $6.95/mo for the webspace and the domain im not worried about, its yearly and its paid for 5
There is a paypal account setup. The domain shouldn't take more than 16 hours for the most part. As soon as thats up, i can log into the photo webpage and create user accounts. That might have to wait until tomorrow night.

I will be working on a form for requesting gallery login's as well. Need to get a stable running version of the gallery up 1st.
Posted 16 July 2003 - 07:25 PM
Oh yeah a small thing, I don't know the term, but the title that shows at the top of the window is "untitled"
Let us know when your ready for photos.
Posted 16 July 2003 - 07:54 PM
As far as it being untitled, thanks for pointing it out Already noticed it and i should have it taken care of next time I update the USMB.net page.
Photo's should be ready soon. If you goto photos.usmb.net/gallery/ you can see the gallery is up, but the images are broken links. I was able to log in successfully, but it is having trouble putting images on the webserver so I think i have to change some of the permissions for the album's folder. I will dink around with that later.
