Due to the excessive amount of bandwidth used (we're popular! :lol: ), the existing single site has been replaced by smaller mirrors:

Quote:
http://members.lycos.co.uk/hhahfiles (retired now, you can no longer write)
http://members.lycos.co.uk/hhahavatars (avatars for this site only)
http://members.lycos.co.uk/hhahscreens (screenshots for this site only)
http://members.lycos.co.uk/hhahscreens2 (screenshots for this site only - option 2, use it every so often, should reduce bandwidth if you alternate)
http://members.lycos.co.uk/hhahmisc (misc. pictures)
http://members.lycos.co.uk/hhahpublic (public image dump)


hhahavatars is for your avatars, and for this site only please
hhahscreens is the first mirror for screenshots, please alternate
hhahscreens2 is the second mirror for screenshots, please alternate
hhahmisc is for misc pictures ie. collections or general images
hhahpublic are for images you intend to use on multiple sites (ie. upload your avatar to hhahavatars and hhahpublic)

Placing all images into one single folder doesn't sound like a good idea.
How about creating separate folders for each user? :roll:

I assume you are talking about too many files and a folder linear search as it grows? You are probably right, when there's thousands of images it will be slower.

Doing it per user is problematic since, well you aren't logged in and don't have to be to upload an image :googley:

I could get it to create a new folder every month or something to address the first issue.

Thanks spud :beerchug:

Just one question...

Don't you think that is a bit like opening the door to making yourself a free webhost for anyone who reads this thread & doesnt post here but posts on other sites?

Because of the bandwidth hike we've had to live with since the image shack ban, anything under http://images.dead-donkey.com is hotlink protected.

We could allow it offsite and allow it public, but I can't afford to hosting for bandwidth on this server.

How about making people to have to log in to post images? That way you get the username and will be able to upload the images into a separate folder for each user. :roll:

seems a bit over the top for just an upload, what is the benefit of having it under user?

There wont be any problems with uniqueness of filenames and users can't mess up posts (images) of others.
Plus there is a structure in it, which is always good. Plus people would have to register first, so the issue that BadBugs posted won't arise.

I personally would upload all my images from my previous and upcoming posts this way. It seems to be the clearest solution for me.

all images a prefixed with the datetime in seconds so they are unique.
I guess i can add a drop down and recycle my login code from the frontpage.

If you actually add folders there's no need for the prefix anymore - if you ask me. :wink:
