After talking to some members I've started work on an image hosting site that I'll offer as a free place to host your images and galleries online. It'll be completely free for you all. The script I'm going to use should provide you with link codes and bbcodes to easily allow you to post images here without putting extra load on this forum.

It'll take me a few days realistically but once its up I'll post back details in this thread for anyone to come join and try it out.

Righto!

The basic sites ready to try out.

Its about 90% done but its all there. I still need to do a little tweaking of the style and formatting and probably some of the image gallery creation options, oh and the Personal Messaging sytem dosent work yet because its being a sod and I'm too tired to carry on tonight. I'll be finishing the site fully tomorrow so it will be done soon!

I've kept it very simple for now til I reckon its all running as it should.

Volunteers to try it out would be very much appreciated at this point :)

The site is at http://www.ergohost.org

Please post back here with feedback.

It would appear the image hosting script I built into the site isnt up to scratch, I'll be rebuilding with an alternative one and it'll all be done by about mid weekend.

Thanks guys, I may have set the image verification a little too aggressive, I'll relax it a little.

Dont try posting any images yet, as noted the image hosting script I purchased seem to be a lot less than perfect, I'll be reconfiguring to a better one in the next day.

Work may go slow as I'm on the Indonesian Island of Batam for a few days (doing the border hop to get a new visa extension for Singapore - old trick), just arrived in hotel and the following shite seems to be what paying for a premium connection gets you :

Going to find the manager now to have words.

I'll update as progress does/dosent occur ::)

what a hateful place, everyone is helpful only to the extent of hopeful commercial gain, when that looks dim the second wallet lightening stategy is trying to broker a girl to help polish your knob, after that concern in your matters seems to end. Also powercuts seem to be an element in an interesting life here.

Alright, the full login image verification has now been reduced and set as follows :

5 Characters total.

Characterset : abcdefhijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ23479

That should hopefully keep it complcated enough to fool bots without annoying humans :)

Having said that Ive met many flesh and blood entities that could still fool you into thinking the "turing test - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turing_test " has failed! :P

Latest update.

Back in singapore and a decent internet connection, well relatively.

Got most of the reconfiguration work done, just the final slog of styling and fine tuning to complete although its most of the way there.

The last tedious task is manually creating a list of categories for image placement, made a start on that too.

Not long now til its done but anyone who wishes is welcome to have a try already :)

OMFG! Its just taken me 13 hours to put together and input a fairly comprehensive list of categories and subcategories. Got to sleep now. Being sustained by vodka and red bull but the negatives are starting to outweigh the positives lol.

When my heads right in the morning I will do a bit of further refinement and start adding descriptions for what currently stands at 240 some individual categories, ugh!

This is turning into a serious task and I blame myself but I might as well do it right.

All the basic configuration is done.

Theres some styling and formatting left to do for the looks but it'll wait til the main stuff is complete. Once the site is roughly "finished" in its current state I'll be adding other styles, because I'm sick of looking at the current one, it was just a conveninet foundation to work off anyway.

Meantime please go ahead and try using it, its ready enough 8)

Hey guys, thanks very much, 3 have registered so far :)

None of you seem to have confirmed your registration confirmation email so far, it contains an auto assigned password you can change once you have made confirmation.

Can you all PM me once you have checked you got it and iy hasnt landed somewhere like spam folder etc.?


There should be a 2 email registration process.

Registration triggers a confirmation email with link back to site that you respond to.

Upon confirmation response at site a second email goes out confirming user details and auto assigned password (Which you can change afterwards if you wish).

Rather annoyingly all is pretty much complete apart from 3 issues.

1. There are sometimes FTP related file permission errors on uploaded images, this is a longstanding bug in Joomla and takes some considerable time to find the right resolution
2. For some reason the script is strictly refusing to allow individual file uploads greater than 2mb, I'm working through a fix with the author.
3. Did you guys get your registration confirmation emails yet, I'm hoping its just a time delay due to geographic routing and task offloading in transitory mail servers.

I had hoped to be finished by now >:( - sorry for these last delays.

The following image best describes my current mood :

Problem is I need it done, giving it my full attention to finish in one go, got other sites waiting to be done:(

Its just sorting out a few bugs, always best to keep at these things or they never get resolved. I plan to upload a great many images myself for various purposes so I want to see how the site responds formatting wise when its in normal use.
