    Announcing the BZPower Gallery
    BZPowerSunday, July 22nd, 2012 at 7:15pm by Andrew, BZPower News Manager

    Shortly after this news story is posted, I'll be flipping the switch on BZPower's newest feature The Gallery. To help make your BZP experience better you'll now be able to host images on the site. Show off your creations and artwork, store your avatar and signature images, share what you want with the entire site! For all the details, read on.

    The idea for a gallery has actually been in the pipe for a long time. Some members might remember that at one point there was a gallery option on the site, but it never worked. We've now resolved all the issues and are proud to offer this new service to our members.

    Images can take up a lot of space, and BZPower only has so much to give before our hard drives fill up. So to start off, there will be some strict limits on how much data you can upload to the gallery. We'll see how things go, and if they don't tax the site too much, we'll see about raising those limits.

    This is mainly a perk for Premier Members. We're giving everyone a little bit of space in the gallery for a few images, but to fully reap the benefits you should consider donating to help keep the site running. Images take up a lot of space and bandwidth, so it's only fair that those who support the site can post more images. We have a sale on Premier Memberships going on from now until the end of the month if you want to upgrade. Also, even though all members currently have Premier Perks, this doesn't apply to the gallery. In any event, here's the limitations as they stand:

    Non-Premier Members:

    • Total space: 2000 kB
    • Size per image: 500 kB
    • Number of albums: 1
    • Number of images per album: 5

    Premier Members:

    • Total space: 10000 kB
    • Size per image: 500 kB
    • Number of albums: 5
    • Number of images per album: 20

    The same rules apply to the gallery as the rest of the site - only post appropriate content and notes and you'll be fine. If you see something that seems unsafe for BZP, use the report feature and the staff will take care of it.

    I hope you all enjoy this new feature. Please comment in the Talkback or send me a PM to let us know what you think!
