Hey folks,

We get people sending in pics all the time. As you have noticed, we usually add a little caption for each pic, and/or we add a username, and/or we add the pic to the images section and to the personal photo albums of our members. This usually takes a bit of work on our part to create the thumbnail, resize the original, upload to the server and add the information to the database. Not a big deal, it's just something that we have always done.

However, when people send in a photo, or a link to a photo, and they do not identify themselves or give an explanation as to what they want done with the photo, and they send the photo from an email that is not in our database, we have a hard time wanting to go through the motions of preparing the photo, uploading the photo, and adding the info to the database.

We have asked this in the past and are asking again... if you send an attachment or a link to a photo and would like to have it published on the site somewhere, please identify who you are (if you are a member, please give your username so we can add the photo to your photo album)and any tiny tidbit of information as to the photo itself. We do not require you to be a member in order to add images to the pictures section, but we probably won't add the pic unless we get some information other than just an attachment or link with no message. This is especially true when the email is just a link that goes to some sharing service that hosts the photo for you. The least you can do is download your own picture and send it in as an attachment. This way, we don't have to go surfing the Internet to find your photo and download it ourselves.

Sorry to come off like a butthead here, but you have to realize that we have thousands of members, and at times, we have gotten up to 20 to 30 images in a single day. The easier you make it on us to get your information unto the site, the more likely the photo will get published.

Thanks!
