Then if you offer your own storage, you get into potential copyright issues by hosting and using someone else's photos. Probably not a problem in 99% of those offering photos to this site. But then one weirdo surfaces.



I wonder what the annual cost is for you to have the necessary server g/b's?

Other sites use member policing and feedback to control spam and porn. Could that work here?

Is liability insurance available, and at what cost to protect you against copyright issues?

Just wondering.

SmugMug has a guest upload capability. Something I'm trying to figure out if it will work. It isn't so much the bread for storage but the stewardship problems that arise. It requires constant babysitting 24x7. Some years back I had photo hosting software on this site. A nightmare to say the least. I'm also under contract with Google which gets complex as far as what I can and can't do here. For now Imgur can host photos similar to photobucket.

A basic SmugMug account isn't expensive. And many people enjoy photo hosting for their own personal stuff. That's another option for those willing to part with a few buck to help out. Some just won't go there, however.

Another question: Anyway for the author of a post to go in and edit it, like you're able to do with Facebook posts?

I believe the board's default is 6 hours after posting for edits.
