Default User Albums...

I've already mentioned that my favorite new feature on the H.A.M.B. is the prefix search, but coming in a close second are the user galleries. Just in the past...

That's kind of what we are working on... a way for the great galleries to be findable...

I've not noticed that before. I went back and forth a couple of times, how do you get that feature to activate? i.e. I can't find it without linking through this particular post.... ?

as far as the "promotion" dilemma goes, i think you're well on the right track with a "latest album pic" section, maybe to follow should be the addition of "random album pic" section adjacent to said "latest..." area. another (unrelated) forum i belong to uses a star rating system for their photos, that might serve as a jumping off point to build a random photo generating engine.

thanks, Ryan i've enjoyed many of the new updates. they've done a lot to bring me back into the fold.

Love this new feature. Would it be possible to have more than 100 pictures, or would that be too much strain on the server????
Spam, here is one of mine.

I had the honor of seeing The Waco Kid recently (June 8th) at the Classy Chassis show in Reliant Stadium, Houston. At the time, I had no idea what I was looking at, but I knew it had to have an important pedigree or story to be included in this show.

I wish I had taken more photos of it, but there were over a hundred cars, and I just didn't want to end up (again) with a thousand photos to have to edit.

Here are the five I took of The Waco Kid (choose "slideshow" in the upper RIGHT on PhotoBucket page, or click the image twice for largest size).

Oh..and El Jefe....you're welcome to copy and have these pics if you like, but then again, you own the actual car, so what do you need pics for? ;-)

The new features are great. It's hard to keep up with all the new stuff that's happening. The only problem for me is finding the time to check it all out regularly.
The albums, feature video and social groups, as well as the main boards are making the HAMB a lifestyle in itself! Like the Hotel California, you can enter but never leave.

I also love the new "Albums" feature ... some might say a bit too much ... cuz I filled my Albums with their "quota" of images (100) on the very first day of the "new & improved" H.A.M.B.!

I don’t anticipate that I'll "need" to add too many more images … but it would sure be nice to at least have the option ... currently, I'm having to delete pics before adding any new ones.

While the images in my albums are no where near as nice as Dreadman's, I have (much to my surprise) received quite a few positive comments about my albums ... and have had several requests to add even more pics to them.

I do realize that even in today’s world of multiple Terabyte storage devices, the HAMB's file-system space is not an infinite resource ... and therefore, Ryan has to draw the line somewhere ... I'm just hoping he considers "redrawing" that line

Ryan ... any chance the max limit on images could be bumped up to 150 (or maybe even 200)?

I think it's great, I wish I could get the pictures in a specific order. I tried naming them differently and messing with the order I uploaded them in but it seems to find it's own order regardless. oh well.

Agreed ... the capabilty for a user to "organize" their own albums would be an added plus.

As a work-around, I've found that if you add one image at a time, it will keep them in "order" ... if you had 10 images you wanted to put in an album in the chronoligical order that they were taken, you would simply add them (1 at a time) to the album in reverse order (i.e.: #10, #9, #8 ... #1).
