Hey everybody — recently, we launched an experimental new “photo uploading” feature for new posts and comments. Given that this is largely a photo community, it only made sense. I did some math, estimated how much it would cost us, and figured it was worth a shot!
So, there’s good news and bad news. The good news is, it worked great and a number of you have been sharing and discussing your work — that’s a win. The bad news is, it’s already become pretty expensive, and it’s going to have to go for the time being. I hope you understand.
Now, if you’ve already posted photos, don’t worry — we’ll leave them in place. It’s bad enough that I have to pull this down, and I’m not about to go wrecking your posts. You just won’t be able to post anything new.
There’s good news, though. You can still embed photos in your posts or comments, as long as they’re hosted somewhere public on the Internet — such as your own Web site. (Some of you have already figured this out — good on ya.) Doing it that way doesn’t hurt us at all, and you should feel free.
Any questions, please let me know — and we’ll see if we can restore this feature someday. Thanks!
