Oooh, I like it... Especially good for Style section.

Oooh, you could be the first to start a Style & Beauty Pictures thread. The topic is here.

I realise that the Topics are ones that are suitable for this type of image-uploading and how it could complement those Topics, but Trolls being Trolls, you're going to have to be pretty quick on the Red Button if someone decides to upload offensive or obscene images.

A lot quicker than you are sometimes.

Yes. Point taken.

But we really don't want to get into a position where we don't do nice/fun/new stuff because we're worried about pervs/the hairy-handed.

So we'll see how we go.

And maybe we'll have a special klaxon for a report from a Pictures thread - or summat.

Ok, thanks, Helen smile

Lemarchand for some reason the pictures don't show if you preview message.

LemarchandsBox Mon 06-Aug-12 12:46:26

Another thing though - people should be aware that their uploaded pics can be Saved by other posters to use as they wish.

So much caution advised with this facility, I would say.

Yes. Sorry about that. We're working on fixing the Preview.

LemarchandsBox Mon 06-Aug-12 12:49:28

Thanks, Smegs, I didn't Preview, but have found out why it didn't display my pic (too big).

Bloody apple. So utterly fabulous, yet so frustrating. It also needs flash!.....

LemarchandsBox Mon 06-Aug-12 12:50:23

Eeeek! That wasn't to you, Smegs, it was just the first Internet image i could find saved on my desktop blush

ScrambledSmegs Mon 06-Aug-12 12:51:10

Hahahahahahaha! grin

No offence taken, that's hilarious!

Maybe it could be set up that reported pictures are automatically deleted, then re-instated by MNHQ if there is nothing wrong with them. IYKWIM.

SparklingGoldMedals Mon 06-Aug-12 13:02:23

We need this in The Litter Tray. Immediately. Kittens!!!!!!

BelleDameSansMerci Mon 06-Aug-12 13:07:18

Would love to, Helen, but am on iPad and daren't MN on work laptop as will spend all afternoon doing it!

Tee2072 Mon 06-Aug-12 13:11:08

If you're going to have this then you really need a hide poster option. Someone shows something offensive, you report them and then hide the poster.

[snuck that in emoticon]

but there are some fantastic rude cakes out there!

nickelbarapasaurus Mon 06-Aug-12 13:18:44

ah yes, MrsChemist - that's a good idea - they could have a little note that says "this picture is awaiting clearance, be patient"

LemarchandsBox Mon 06-Aug-12 13:22:07

Does MNHQ have non-exclusive copyright on the pictures too?

Can we expect an MN Big Book Of Cakes in the near future?

NettOlympicSuperstar Mon 06-Aug-12 13:27:19

Ooh cool

MidnightKnitter Mon 06-Aug-12 13:32:47

Great idea but the pictures are really rubbish on my phone sad.

AbsolutelyNotHoneyDragon Mon 06-Aug-12 13:39:52

Maryz Mon 06-Aug-12 13:41:10
