Regarding the Gallery Section

I am thinking about a reform on the Model Gallery: I will stop hosting the actual pics of models myself on the site. Instead I will just **link** to the free photo sites were the pics are stored by the individual modeller (Flickr, Photobucket etc). This will means that the modellers are urged to publish the pics of their models on these specialized sites instead.

I have tried Flickr myself ( and they work just fine. And the limit of 200 free pics will not be broken in a while for anyone.

For an example on how it will look, see Mike Coopers model gallery on Flickr (it was this that gave me the idea).

This mean that I will save bandwith and space for the site, and at the same time modellers won't have to wait for weeks to see their beautiful work displayed to the world. (Sorry Eduardo!) And it won't cost the modellers anything. And they will have total control over the presentation, and there is the option of commenting on them.

All the models that are on the gallery now will of course stay there, and the LINKING on the Gallery to the different Flickr/Photobucket/whatever pages is an instrumental part of it.
