The problem with the gallery as it currently exists on the BMBA site is that it's labour intensive to add photos to it, compared to something like Facebook or Flickr. It does have the advantage of looking sweet, and we can put as many pictures as we like up there as our server host (Freeola) imposes no limits on the size of our website.
Colin - I used a free tool called LightBox to create the individual galleries that I then uploaded to our webserver and linked into the site. More details on LightBox here -->
Flickr or a Facebook Page (as opposed to group or account) would seem to be the way to go, linked to the gallery link on the main site.
I've only used a free account on Flickr, but like the versitility of the site. Big fan of Facebook myself, but appreciate some people have difficulty accessing it from work. Though presumably if your office firewall blocks Facebook, it probably blocks Flickr as well? Plus not sure how public Facebook gallerys on a Page can be made to people that don't have Facebook accounts.
If Simon's volunteering to set up something for us on Flickr that might be the way to go
Hiya, am an ex moth owner looking for my old boat (or a new one) as soon as I'm back on the water I feel sure there will be a little publicity (for reasons I won't go into here) so if you or anyone could help me find sail No. 745 - once called 'Homebrew', though not by me, I would be glad to help in any way I can
Who would have thought it. New Boy is your publicity officer. To start I will be posting here more often to keep people thinking and talking about our class. With that in mind, I can not spell and my grammer is poor. I am long over it so sorry once and lets get started.
I would really like peoples thoughts on what we can do to promote our class. Could you please not post them here and start debates just yet. Instead could you pm me or mail me on email@example.com The only reason for that is so that we can chat and take your thoughts forward and because there may already be plans in place.
I have started a conversatiion with a well known mag about a feature article. Not got far but these things take time.
