Just one more vote and reminder to restrict Gallery uploads to one a day.
I honestly think this will help FF continue to be the best there is for fractal imagery.
It does not help to have the very finest artists, coders and mathematicians if you can't easily see
their images. It is not fair to have an upload by Johan, Kali, lenord or many of the other geniuses here
pusjed down a page or two and perhaps never seen by many because there are several users who upload
several rows or a page of images that, quite frankly in most cases, would be better represented by choosing a few

Another option is to activate the "Approve Image" option.

This would allow moderators to approve every image uploaded, and none would show until approved.

There would be a delay between uploads and approval ranging from a couple minutes to 8 hours, depending on what moderators are on hand, but we could be certain the spam stops!

There may be a way to set up a special user group which would be exempt from the need for image approval (for trusted users).  I'll look into it...

Life is complex - It has real and imaginary components.

Since an Approve Image option exists, it may be possible to create a web-bot account to handle approvals. This would avoid any perceived favoritism, but it would require the web-bot host to have their computer turned on all the time.

It's a shame it seems to boil down to some kind of Software Limitation control when all it really takes is just a bit of common sense and courtesy. Common sense in the fact Nobody is Impressed by Quantity but by Quality and you're not making any Friends by Obscuring other peoples Work.

if i know i'm going to post a lot of pic, i create a thread for that and i post all the pics in this threads.
eg : http://www.fractalforums.com/images-showcase-%28rate-my-fractal%29/ker2x%27s-buddhabrot-gallery/   grin

Edit : I host the pics myself, on Amazon S3, it's really dirt cheap for just a hundreds pics with a low traffic (a few cents/month)
(and there is no limits to the size)

often times... there are other approaches which are kinda crappy until you put them in the context of parallel machines

I uploaded a pic today and then didn't realize that it was pending approval, so I proceeded to upload it again!  When I realized what was going on, I deleted my extra.  Doh!   afro
