James, it would be great if we could post pictures directly here, rather than having to post them elsewhere and then provide a link. My biggest problem with that is that Google+ doesn't seem to respect one's privacy when sharing photos publicly, which is less than ideal. I also think that having photos directly on this forum would enhance your website's status as the go-to online local news resource for se1.

Hi vicd

It's a fair suggestion but there are several reasons I would be reluctant to go down this path:

- Storing files costs money and bandwidth
- There is potential for people to abuse the system to share inappropriate content
- There are implications in terms of copyright and other rights and legal responsibilities

I'd rather leave file storage and management to specialists.

I wouldn't rule it out but there are higher priorities for improving this website at the moment.
