Title: How to use this Picture Post forum - READ THIS BEFORE POSTING!
Post by: brendonm on August 23, 2005, 05:16:31 PM
The Picture Post forum is for you to share your pictures. The internet is a very visual place and this forum is all about sharing the visuals.

Due to the size of images and the amount of storage space which images can take up we encourage you to use free image storage sites and then link to them from here. This way, you get to share your pics, we provide you the ability to do so here, the only catch is that you need to go and upload your pictures elsewhere first.

There are a number of free image hosts out there, and some provide you the ability to link to the images you upload from forums like ours. At this stage the best we've found is Image Drop Box at http://www.imagedropbox.com . They have an excellent up time, allow 10Mb of free space and 1Gb of data transfer.

Please feel free to add links to other good image providers below.

Conditions of use of this forum:
Acceptable content are pictures of your Skyline or related vehicle, pictures from events, photochopped images.
Unacceptable images are porn or anything unrelated to the nature of this website. If you post trash like this your post will not be accepted and you will be warned or banned (at our discretion).
Do not attach or upload images to our server - you must get them hosted elsewhere. Attempts to attach your pictures here will be rejected. This is a measure to maintain a decent web account on our server.
The intention of this forum is mainly to allow you to share your pictures of your cars - keep the comments and chat to a minimum to retain the integrity of this ideal.

That's about it.

So in brief:
1) Set up an account with a free image host like: http://www.imagedropbox.com
2) Create a post about your car.
3) Use BBCode to link to the images
4) Submit your post and it will go into our approval queue.
5) Enjoy!

Please note:
This initiative is on trial. If it is abused and gets out of control it will be shutdown. I have been concerned at the growing size of our hosting account due to images being constantly attached which is fine, and it is mainly due to post of this type of nature. Since the costs of the forum are shared by a small handful of us with no direct sponsorship or financial support from the club as such, this initiative will allow us to go hard share images as everyone loves doing without the huge expense. Please respect it, and don't make me regret creating this forum ;)

http://www.photobucket.com is another good image hosting site (25MB's of room).

Good idea for a forum too. :)
