    where each of us can post pictures of quilts dogs cats family and we pull from our own to illustrate what we are posting.

    If we want to look at someones work or other we can look in their album

    Its hard to find things from a month ago let alone fron 2 or three years ago.
    How about it

    This forum is just like the one at Crochetville and they do not have albums there. It is very expensive to run one of these forums.

    It would require more server space which means more money to run it. I doubt we will get it.

    I know a couple other sites I visit have one and its easy to post from the album to a message.
    I dont think it takes that much more space.

    Since typing this I think they already said no...oh well

    As I posted to someone in PM recently, one of my long-term goals is to replace the software that powers this message board.

    I'll be sure to keep in mind the idea of users hosting their own albums when selecting the platform.

    I have to admit, when I first saw this I thought "nah... we already have a pictures section, it's a double up".

    But now that I think about it, it would be very cool to have an album attached to each user. Of course, "cool" doesn't necessarily mean easy! LOL

    To be able to see someone's entire quilting life, and the growth and changes visible in each picture would be awesome.

    We could each start our own on flicker or something like that that is free.

    I belong to another forum where each member can have a gallery. It's pretty easy to look thru the member galleries and see which ones have new pictures added. It's neat to see the progression of a member's projects without having to do a search thru pages and pages of messages.

    Yeah, me too, you can even organize your work by folder, by year, by type, whatever, and just post a link in your siggy area.

    I think I 'm going to look into it with webshots or flikr, or something. :)

    Ok, posted a link to my facebook album with all my quilts, but for some reason, it's not clicky, you have to copy-paste the link into your browser winder, and then if you're not a facebook member you can't post any comments, although you CAN view the pics.

    Until I figure out a different site to host my pics where you can maybe comment or whatever, if anyone else is interested in sharing their facebook album, if you click on your own album, at the bottom of the page you should see an address and it says somthing like "share this album with non-facebook users by sending this link" or something like that, just copy-paste the link into the siggy area of your profile :)

    ok, it's going to be considered, and that is appreciated, bc this idea sounds great, Ruth.
    It's always ok, to present an idea, whether it is doable or not. Who knows? Just bc it may not be doable at one time, doesn't mean, it will always be that way.
    I'd love to be able to click on a person's name and see all of their yummy creations.
    I do more than quilt, but don't usually share unless the project has some quilting in it.
