The featured art on the forum front page has fallen a little into disrepair due hosting sites modifying their urls over time. This is especially true of photos originally hosted on facebook, but other images have also disappeared.

When I had originally spec'd out how featuring member artwork might work, one of my ideas was to use vbulletin's album functionality to host featured art images.

As we've discussed on numerous occasions, mindromp's founders and janitors have concerns about opening up albums across the board because it would necessitate storing images on our server. Although we as a freewheeling group of mindrompers feel free to discuss nsfw, graphic topics here, most forum hosting sites don't permit storage of "pornographic" images on their servers. I use scare quotes because who the hell knows specifically what a server hosting company would object to. It's a topic where there are no established standards. So, we've kept member ability to store images on mindromp's servers mostly shut down while allowing images (nsfw or not) to be linked and displayed at will.

So, what's this all about?

I've enabled the albums feature, but right now, only janitors can create albums and add photos. And I'm working through the database of featured photos to see which ones I can track down manually and add to the album I created for this purpose.

But, since I've partially enabled the feature, we probably want to have a long, drawn out, derailed discussion of whether this was a good idea and whether the album feature should be enabled more widely.

ready, set go!

I don't browse through that page that often but I quite like the feature, it feels mindrompy and the pics feel like old friends.

I'd nominate stuff that Dio wants to share from old school and Teshi's auroras as additions. There's been a few cool bird pics, too.

I trust your judgement implicitly, and that of the janitors, in all matters of taste, aesthetics and board functionality.

Ob, if you click the image it takes you to the thread but not to the post that explains what the image is. Not ideal.

Which image is having this problem? I've tried a few and they seem to be working correctly.
