Some people, aka two people specifically have been using this gallery to store pictures of their family and random politicians.  I mean, come on, you people have been here long enough to know that there are other places to store such things.

Does anyone have the power to delete random sh!t (official term, I guess) posted there?

Posters have the power to report pictures, but I don't know who gets rid of them if that's what you're asking. 



I'm hoping my message gets across, so I don't have to go through and report every single misplaced photo.  I will if I have to, but I'll just wait a bit to see if anything happens.

Hey Jmf, what's the point of stuffing election map gallery with your family photos without posting it on FC? Tongue

Why on earth are you laughing at jmfcst?  How does a picture of Naso and a toothbrush belong in the map gallery?  Or the "rage" picture?

You and Cathcon are just as bad as jmfcst...

I was worried this was in reference to me - I have put a couple pictures that I needed for school but are blocked there on here under miscellaneous. Our school blocks a lot of stuff, so this is the easiest way to be able to access certain pictures. I try to delete most of them after use, though.

I ignored this thread because I knew it would be nerdy and therefore would have nothing to do with me...so why is my name being thrown around?

Because you're uploading pictures of your family to the gallery for election maps.  Put it in "People" or "miscellaneous".

AFAIK, you can delete one can delete pictures he uploaded to the gallery.

many posters, like me, do not use the map section and are therefore unaware of the consequences of uploading pics without changing the defaulted election maps folder...so Dave might want to see if there is a way to change the gallery upload default to something other than election map.

I have to concur.

I'm quite sure there is some of my Quebec precinct maps in that gallery instead of the international gallery because it is the default option.

Guys, this website is about political maps... seems like a reasonable default to me.

I guess this is a reference to me. Tongue If I remember correctly, when I uploaded my pics from the Ron Paul speaking engagement, I didn't even remember saving them as a certain file type, and thus if they ended up there, I was unaware.

Do as I do : add pictures only after entering in a particular section of the gallery. It takes one more click, but makes things easier that selecting in the list.
