     Linking to images here from other websites causes bandwidth problems, and storing images here for non-members causes server storage space problems. This website and forum are devoted to the life-sized doll hobby, and we welcome any registered member to request a gallery and post their doll pictures here.

     The rules for the gallery are spelled out here:


     If any of this is unclear, please contact a member of management for a further explaination.



     If anyone wants free online gallery hosting, please check these websites:


     I am sure there are other places to look, but these will give you a start.

I need to clarify a technical point.  Linking to images from other sites DOES NOT cause bandwidth issues for ODC.  The ODC forum merely supplies the URL like any other piece of text in a message.  From there your browser communicates with the site hosting the image.  ODC's server takes no part in the transmission of the image and suffers no bandwidth impact beyond supplying the image's URL.

Edit: what originally was written here, has been quoted by KingTut.

You are right, but both noquiexis and you wrote "from other sites", explaining the opposite.
Noquiexis: link on another website to picture here causes bandwith issues here.
KingTut: link here to picture on another website doesn't cause bandwith issues here.
My $0,02 is that bandwith is always taken somewhere. If not here, than there. Which isn't always netiquette.

No, I intended to write exactly what I wrote. I usually do.

     Perhaps this will clear up some of the ambiguity of my ealier post.

     My personal website does not have any doll pictures, so all of my photo shoots on that website link to doll pictures stored here in the Our Doll Community gallery. I have a lot of non-doll material on my personal website, and I am running out of space.

     My personal website gets very little traffic (mostly friends and family). Because traffic on my personal website is light, I am confident that the impact on the server here is minimal. By linking to pictures stored here, in web pages stored there, I can still advance the doll hobby without stepping on 'conservative' toes. Also, some of my friends and family have young children about, so linking to posts here at Our Doll Community is not advisable.

     Overall, the doll pages on my personal website have the exact same text as my posts here at Our Doll Community. I provide those "family friendly" webpages for people who I know would be offended some of the "adult" content on Our Doll Community. Of course, I get no credit for 'hits' on these pictures, but I generally ingore the 'view' count in the galleries here anyway.

     For the most part, my non-doll pictures are stored on my personal website. Some of those non-doll pictures (flowers, greetings, etc.) are linked in posts that I have here at Our Doll Community. I also link to off-site page dividers and other graphics for my stories in The Library and for long posts here.

To get this thread back on track.

When you register for a Gallery, I get a PM with your request.

We look forward to seeing everyone's pics, no matter where they come from.

ODC is happy to provide a gallery for anyone who wishes.
