I've just enabled the new User Image Galleries!

This new feature allows you to upload images for use on BoardGameGeek that don't fall into the other categories of images. These images bypass GeekMod (they are automatically approved), you'll receive no GeekGold - but the images can be used in all the systems on BGG by using their ImageID (E.g. for geeklists or embedded within a post).

These aren't meant to replace the older image galleries for games, publishers, designers, but are meant for special use scenarios.

For example, you could upload a series of images to be used in a session report, or an image that you want to use in a puzzle, etc...

As usual - please let me know if you encounter any bugs / problems.

Also, I've added some terms of use on the bottom of the upload screen - this doesn't really change anything from what was inferred before, but now it's written out in the appropriate place.

To upload an image go to your profile page, click on the "Gallery" tab, then click on "Upload Image."

Wow! Now, that is useful. Where's my digital camera? I've been wanting something like this for my recent session reports. You're way ahead of me.

(Of course, Bgg has been ahead of me for years now. It was here even before I got heavily into board games).

Fantastic!

Awesome; thank you.

Now, how about files? Using Miscellaneous Game Accessory as a dumping ground for non-game-specific files is kind of an ugly kludge.

I'm a little wary of creating a generic file upload system. There's too much room for abuse in that kind of system than with images.

Sweet, I'm glad to see this enabled now! I wonder how many people will use this for portraits? I expect to see some geeklists with gamer portraits in them in a few months, once people have had time to upload them.

This is great. I'm happy that I don't have to get my images for games approved so that I can link them to games on my Widget. I don't like showing off the titles, just the artwork!
thanks.

Good stuff - i might just move some Geek Lists and Profile graphics over there.

Is it possible to have 2 {IMG} tags next to each other so smaller pics can be seen next to each other rather than below each other??

Thanks arrrh

I guess the real life niagara pic finally will find it's way to the geek.

I think its great because certain pictures can mean a lot to you, but werent approved because they were too personal.

For image modders does this mean that they have to be more strict, or is the same level of strictness called for?

For instance I would approve a pic for people playing a game if the game was easily recognized and it wasn't too similar to a pic of other people playing the game.

I would only disapprove of a pic when people where posing with an unplayed game or the game was not easy to recognize.

Should i stay with that or should I only approve them if it was a particulary good photo of people playing the game (I can make up what certain people are trying to accomplish in the game)

Any chance that normal images submissions that get rejected can be automatically placed into your user gallery?

Brilliant idea for a cool and needed feature!

Is there an upload limit of any kind (disk space, amount of pictures, etc.)?

On the My Geek javascript menu, could you add an entry for Gallery?

After uploading an image, the only choice is "Upload Another". Could you also add choices for "View uploaded image" and "View entire gallery"?
