This is just a general announcement to let folks know that I've re-opened the gallery area of StP:

https://squattheplanet.com/gallery

I had closed it previously due to disk space running short on the server, but I've recently solved that problem so we should have plenty of space available for members to upload photos. Also, it was debatable that the gallery was even relevant here (since most of us post photos in threads) but i figure fuck it, we'll play around with the idea and see if it works.

That said, one of the previous problems we had was some users uploading ridiculously off topic pictures or just utter nonsense, so I've restricted the ability to upload photos into only the pre-definited categories. For the most part, I'd like the gallery to be a place for users to show off their best photography (whether it's on a cell phone or a fancy DSLR) and not just a place to dump random pictures. With that in mind, anything that gets uploaded to the gallery may be deleted by myself or the staff here on StP if it doesn't meet some basic requirements. These requirements are currently undefined, since this is a new project. I'll try and draw up specific rules later.

just upload good shit and not trash, and your pics will stick around in the gallery for a long time.

of course any input or suggestions on this project would be greatly appreciated!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $130.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
