I'd like to really solve the featured art image hosting issues, and I think that will come down to hosting photos on our server.

Here are some wild thoughts:

- install a photo gallery app on the server (easily done). Set up a "curator" user in that app. Give the password to the janitors (or maybe to a featured art czar?). They can upload images to the gallery app and then use that URL for the images, themselves.

Advantage: images can be stored at whatever resolution is preferred. The image url will be static, so no broken links. This would work if/when we move to different forum software - all the images would still be there and we could continue to add images after a migration.
Disadvantage: will have to navigate and log into the app. It's not ~in~ vbulletin

- set up a forum user account that can use the forum gallery software. Can do the same thing in terms of janitors maintaining/adding images, or appointing a featured art czar.

Advantage: it's ~in~ vbulletin, no navigation/bookmarking/remembering url, etc.
Disadvantage: Will have to log into a different account to upload images.

No-one's discussed what you want. It's whether you'd say no to the Matriarchy.

@imp....

You are assuming the 'matriarchy' would relinquish some control over an aspect of their domain!

to be fair, her main failing is an inability to control Gonzo whenever he shows up
