    Who here thinks that we should have user galleries. Each person could go into eachothers galleries and look at pictures of their equipment that they have. Most all forums have this feature, but I have not seen it on here and this is all about the pictures!:nod: lol

    Any thoughts? Mods any thoughts? I don't know if this would take to much server space, but its just a thought. I know I'd like it. I just hope we dont' already have user galleries and I'm just making myself look like an idiot for not noticing.

    I think it is a good idea and I am going to see what it will take to make this happen.

    Well if we do that then it will be cost for space on host's server.

    I think limit all members post pictures on gallery at 175 KB so that should be ok.


    I do love it but will it help if we gave 20 dollars like sponsor with private forum like club.



    For chat room at mytractorforum they use this http://www.addonchat.com/ they put in their files so it work good.

    Thanks Sean, I hope this is something we can do. A huge part of Plowsite is pictures of equipment. And this site seems to get bigger everyday. It seems we welcome a new member atleast everyday.

    It'd be nice, but I don't think it'd be worth the slower page access overall. Everytime someone adds a gallery, the website gets slower unless it is upgraded first.

    Ya, I'm not expert but I think to host something like that, the site would have to be upgraded. But fuiger that instead of everyone throwing pictures all over the place that just get lost and no one ever sees again but they sit in a thread somewhere wasting space, everyone could post them to their galleries and then use html to insert them into their posts. Just a thought.

    I say yes. If you look at the main page, Truck and Equipment Pictures is # 2 with the most posts. Pictures are a HUGE thing on Plowsite. How about it Sean.

    I don't know all that much about websites, but I'm optimistic. Well I guess I'm just optimistic that Sean will be optimistic. lol.
