When you guys talk about Flikr or Imgur being able to show "thumbnails", are you just talking about those small images you have to click only, or images in general?

I'd like to switch myself, but I do prefer posting images that can be comfortably viewed within the site rather than having to click something that takes the viewer outside the site to the image host.

Yes I agree. If I can't easily figure out a way of dealing with this, this will have to be it for this site. All the links that draw what little traffic comes will be dead and frankly, if I need to figure out how to move everything to a new host, there won't be time to create anything. So this is looming as being possibly catastrophic at the moment.

I was looking at the first page of the 50 thread.

aridas, t looks like you posted some direct. Like this: Image (What the hell? Why does this work???)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v176/ ... feries.png

Others (most) you posted using a link like this Image

Me, I usually post thumbnails like this (Mark): Image

Funny thing is, PB used to be really good at this. It was invaluable making my Enterprise Shot Catalog.

aridas, I did this post as a proof of concept. The point is that PB is not yet completely useless. While you should certainly migrate, because PB sucks, it doesn't have to be done right now.

All those images are posting in line. That is weird.

My God that is beautiful. I forgot how nice that was. You should show it to Drexler and ask if it might be considered for that calendar.

My main problem is with new material. I am not going to upload anything else to Photobucket. So i have to either find a third party host or spring for creating a server here and doing it myself. Which I might do but... money and time and trouble. For very limited traffic. I want to do this, but at a certain point it becomes an exercise in futility.

By the way, can I include schematics of that shuttle of yours in the Fifty for 50? I keep thinking the stolen Starfleet design from "Balance of Terror" is some version of this early Jefferies design. I was going to use my own, bigger version, but this smaller ship would be beautiful. Plus, I like to include the work of artists I admire, and yours certainly qualifies in that area.

I agree that's wonderful work.

That's a shuttlecraft model that always impressed me. Perhaps could I build a physical model of it one day!

FWIW they say over on Bernard's site that Imgur can show full size images. I'm going to check it out a little further.

LOTS of thumbnails (generated VERY quickly)!

Like I've said, I haven't played with Flickr or DeviantArt. But one thing I love about Imgur is that it's FAST. It's kind of built to be a "community" type of experience, but you can ignore that. I do.

Oh, aridas, of COURSE you can use my Jefferies. Although I like the version I'm working on now more than that one. I actually submitted it to Drexler a couple of years ago. Maybe I should push to redo it with the current model. That's the dream! :)

Wow Bill, thanks!

I think you've sold me on it.
