I wouln't consider it cheating if you still use both profiles, not only use it for pics.
but I think they have a list of ip's so if you do do it, you gotta create more ip's if they ever only allow you one account.

Or you could simply pay and upgrade your account if you need photohosting.

Or you could just get a photobucket.com account and upload pics there when you run out of room in your gallery

Howcome everyone is so quick to promote free photo hosting sites?? What's so bad about spending the few bucks and getting a photo account here??? The money goes towards the site, and you obviously use it..

As marisa & sunrunner said, I would pay to upgrade my account for more space if you need more.
I can imagin how much it cost to run this site and how much time the owner must spend on it. I wouldent like to pay the bill if you get what i mean. Its a fantastic site so why not encourage it. Just think of the "Free" classifieds here. You have to pay for an account in K.S.com......

As far as i'm concerned, i'm gonna pay and put my website here as soon as it is finished. ( Poisonous is making it

the problem with free offsite photohosting is often they have limits on how you can link to their pics or how often you can view the photos. or they add crap to your photo like their name.

Oh and it's cheating to set up multiple accounts to get more photohosting.

Actually setting up this site could technically cost the person nothing if they had the equipment already. All you really need is a good firewall, the know how to set it up, a public ip address with a high bandwidth line....... actually the more that I think about it hosting you own webiste is actually more expensive then it usually is to rent web space. I know my GF rents webspace and I don't think it is costing her more then $100 - $150 per year for the space. She also has a pretty similar setup, same type of message board and what not. As long as you don't get charged for the bandwidth usage hosting costs for this type of message board are quite minimal.

But all that being being said, I don't think it would be a big deal to throw $20 to the site to help it out.

Vengeance: Many low cost providers have limits on how much bandwidth you can use in a month, plus i don't know if you've perused the gallery but there's gigabites of photos in there. Also there's the space for the message them selves. I know they don't take up much on their own but have you seen the number of messages ssnakess has? I remember when Jeff had just a webspace instead of a whole dedicated machine... the site could barely keep up and that was what? 6 months to a year ago? The site's grown by leaps and bounds since then.

I would help keep THIS site up and running by getting more photo space here.
