Don't know what " brun ing " is but it has piqued my curiosity !

For my tuppence worth have to say that in general terms I don't go for Thread Merging, things just disappear and I really don't have the patience to scroll through a humongous Thread.

Re: Merging Image Threads

Why not for picture threads - have a selction box for how long the images should remain - perhaps 2, 5, 10 days - then after 10 days they are deleted or merged.

Re: Merging Image Threads

Perhaps the AO gallery should be used for meet/event images?

This way they are all organised and forever available. (FYI - We have 1000 gigabytes available monthly courtesy of the club fees, bandwidth usage is currently about 30-40% of that)

Re: Merging Image Threads

just images from another site works fine like we already use, photobucket allows me to upload upto 250 pics at once, which i find quite handy

Re: Merging Image Threads

@drivel


Okay so it looks like a solution/best approach is being ironed out on multiple picture posts for a single event, which is good.

I would say though still and taking the two threads started by Baby & EA as an example, who wants to remember to merge them in 4 to 5 days? That would be like shovelling the posts all up and everything would be out of sync and make no sense. Now that's what I call an overhead, having to remember to do this. Have the Mods got nothing better to do or would they like some real work arranged! Anyway, doesn't really matter as this problem would disappear once the solution/method is determined for the most part. All I'm saying is lets not get hung up about it too much with reminders and alerts to action such unimportant things. MHO.

Re: Merging Image Threads

Some people need it spelt out!

1) A solution is being worked on and that in itself would probably catch 90% of duplicate image threads created on a single organised event.
2) On the odd occassion an event not organised by members/staff might be visited by two separate people who unkowingly post up a separate thread with pics. Let them slide & die. Why bother with the overhead of remembering to merge in 4 or 5 days.
3) If a group of individuals off the cuff decide to meet at a car park and 4 of them take pics and start separate threads each with say about 2 to 5 pics, then merge them, to keep things tidy.

Common sense as I see it and no need to get too wrapped up with procedures to deal with a non problem, imho.

So in the interim, who wants to start the British Motor Show catch all thread, if not already indeed started

Re: Merging Image Threads

Just a thought. What about stopping people posting comments on photo threads of meets. When the threads are merged we won't have 10 pages of :

Nice Pics !
Just the photos from the meet.
