Has anyone looked at the site on a mobile device or cell phone? I looked on my Android and I though it looked pretty good. One more thing. Something I would think to have is the ability to comment on each others pictures. Unfortunately that feature isn't built in to the program but can be handled through a third party app like Disquss. What do you guys think of that?
As many of you are aware we continue to go through various issues with image hosting sites (Photobucket being the most recent). One of our long time members has decided to look into establishing an image hosting site that will be free to users of Stamp Bears (and other sites).
At this time Phil is testing out a number of options and has a preliminary site set up and would like to have our membership run a Beta test with him to see if this site will work out as he would like. So here is the deal -
Phil wants this site to be stamp related only (family friendly and only stamp related images - keep adult content and personal images off this server please) You go to www.chevereto.pressdat.com and set up an account Upload a few images into your account PLEASE BE AWARE THIS IS A POTENTIALLY TEMPORARY ACCOUNT - only load images you also have saved else where this is for testing only Post these images here to this thread Post feedback and suggestions along with your images for consideration
DO NOT use this as your primary image host at this time this is Beta Testing only.
Soooooooo please start posting!!
Just a little to add to what Bear said.
This is something I've wanted to do for awhile now. My vision for this is it to be more than a image host. I really want this to be somewhere people can show off their stamps in an organized gallery style. And I want to point out that I am looking at other platforms. As nice as this looks I really feel that it lacks in a few ways.
There is a link that you can email me directly. In the top menu, right side - go to 'About' > Contact. (why they just didn't put a contact-link where you didn't have to search for it is beyond me). What do you think about the categories? Do we need more? Less?
First off thanks for trying it out and I am paying attention. I work a 7&7 schedule and I'm on my week at work so I'm a little occupied at the moment and I may not be able to comment or respond immediately. But I am paying attention.
Hi Phil for some reason it would not accept my user name (tony h) I made a new one then I had password issues, I at last created a password which was accepted and I am in here is my first upload.
Tell me what you like, tell me what you don't like.
And just to let everyone know, I personally am not thrilled with it. There are a few things I think it lacks as far as the back-end goes. I've done some poking around at the official website and it seems there's no plans for adding what I think we could really use. Not to mention the responses I get from the developer give me the impression he's in a bad mood - all the time. There is one other app I'm looking at. I'm in correspondence with the developer and if it's possible to share the images to Stamp Bears easily I think I will make an installation let everyone preview it as well.
I know that you are looking for a site that people can go to and see stamps from a list of countries. For me, I wouldnt use the site for that, but just for uploading stamp pics to post here.
What Pressdat has going for it, is that I can move scans around from album to album, unlike Postimage. As for uploading to Pressdat, I have to upload the pic first than move it to the appropriate album.
As for now, I dont think there is no advantage for me to move my scans to Pressdat, so I will continue with Postimage.
