Becoming Adept!

Hi,

Still setting up the site, but after looking at all the photo gallery options it does not look like a normal member can add pictures to the image gallery?

I want members to be able to post a pic of themselves or an in-game screenshot to share with other members...  (even if it's just a link to another location on the web due to limited space)...  I know Guild Launch has a similar functionality...

Am I overlooking something or is this a good request for "New Functionality"???

Something similar was mentionned by one of our members a while ago: they wanted to upload some pics of the toons in action, but could not .

Since I don't the time nor the will to have to get the pics in my email, then import them to Axiom or any other online repository, then publish them in GP, we decided to simply drop the Picture Gallery feature for now.

I'm all for a "revamped" Picture Gallery, where you could set up the level of security of the posters (from Members to SuperAdmin).

Agreed.  I thought it was odd that members can either be granted FULL access or none at all to both the Image Gallery and Calendar.  There should be a middle access level which grants them the ability to upload / link images and to create Calendar Events but not remove either (unless created by that member).

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this way.

I truly think that members should be able to up load pics...I have to manually add them and my plate is already full

I will also agree with this.  I would like to see support added so that members could upload pictures without having to give them full access to the Images section.

I like you guys idea, but just an insight to add. The 5mb that GP offers for soundwaves and pics could disappear real quick. I have about 90 pics posted on my site(reaching the max). but for those toons that what to post a picture i have an embedded page from a myspace link. They can upload a picture there and still see it on the GP. Atleast thats what i did to overcome the volumn of pics from toons that want to add.

I have the same problem.. but I suggest a slightly different Solution:

Don't have the members upload "the picture" to GP .. after all, GP is not a media hosting site..
Have them upload "the picture" to wherever they want (photobucket, flicker, etc etc)
but allow the members to add "the link"

This way, the GP gallery is but a small file that contains all the links to externally hosted images. The only thing we 're adding is the ability to have different access levels to that list...

I manage my guild's website. Great idea IceHeart. Here's my vote for such an ability.
