I am all for more photos. I love some of the ones we have now, (even the ones that I didn't contribute :lol: ) Maybe we can contact Art Copy and get permission to access some of their large historical collection, or even the TRRHC, they seem to come up with great ones for the calender. Greg, if you need to dump some of my non-historically related photos from the contributor page to make room for more good stuff, you certainly have my permission.

Good ideas guys. A site I used to(still am but it's sorta defunct now) be affiliated with, Photo-Addicts.com, occaisionally threw around ideas like this. How would you guys feel about a photo gallery to call your own? I do have software sitting in the wings, so to speak, that will allow you to build you're own photo gallery. From there you'd be able to vote on other peoples photos in the gallery, have some features that appear on the gallery homepage, even the website homepage. Space is definitely not an issue, we're currently using 3.3% of the space on our server. If for some reason the gallery outgrew the 10gigs, I could move it to my home server which has unlimited space. I'll get the software setup so you guys can look at it.

Greg, I would LOVE my own gallery. I have some pictures up on Webshots, and have gotten fairly good response from them. I enjoy sharing my photos, even if the quality varies from pretty darn good to just plain awful. :P I don't have much to offer in the way of historical pics, other than some I have purchased from Art Copy, but I have a couple thousand shots from the last 12 years or so. Surely a few of those are fit for public consumption!

The heck with voting.
Let's see the pics.
