On a random note, is that a 40MB allocation per calender month, or per every 30 day cycle?

Sorry, it took me a while to answer. To be honest, I wasn't quite sure. It refreshes at the start of the calendar month. Why, did you fill up your 40MBs ?!

Hey all!! I love this site, and was perusing the FAQ and now this forum, looking to see about the monthly photo allotment! I hit my limit a week or so ago, and was waiting patiently until today, thinking my new month would start today... and it didn't!

I started posting a lot of pictures on August 22nd, and today is September 23rd. But if it works on the calendar month, does that mean I have to wait until October 1 to be able to post up more photos?

How does one become a Full or Respected Member of the site?

Thanks MUCH for any additional information!

Hi Lisa,

I couldn't tell you about the photo space, but to become a Full/Respected/Guru member of the site requires a special alignment of a few planets. It's calculated, I believe, using the number of posts you do, what forums you post in, the photos you upload, member votes, and so on. It's much better explained here, if you follow the links.

BTW, love your Hawaii pics!

Amount of uploads is indeed calculated per calendar month, and so will be reset on October 1.
Posting on the forums is probably the easiest way to quickly get a higher "user rank", and thus more bandwidth per month, but writing weblog entries, having photographs featured in country galleries, and some other secret things will also get you there.

Gotcha! Thank you both for your replies. I read thru most of what was on the first link Tway listed... I'll read the other 2 next.

And here I am with ONE post. I've looked through the forums, but most are so far removed from anywhere that I'm near or have been to, you know? And I see nothing and no one from Hawaii. LOL

So to have photos featured in galleries, is that something that just happens without my knowledge or effort? Most of my pictures are of scenic Hawaii... interspersed w/ family pictures of myself and my kids enjoying Hawaii.

And thanks, Tway, I'm glad you liked the pics!!

Yes. Peter and Sam look at all uploaded photographs every few days, and feature those of high quality that show characteristic features of specific countries, which would be of interest to other people yet to travel to those places (at least, I assume something like that is their criteria).
Family pictures obviously won't fall under that, but scenic pictures might.

You're right there aren't many threads about Hawaii, but it might be worthwhile to keep an eye on the North America forum every so often anyway. The first thread about Hawaii I found - here - didn't have any replies, so someone with knowledge on Hawaii could be quite helpful on those occassions when people have questions.

Getting to know people and posting in the broader discussions on the "general" forum might also be worthwhile.

Thanks for your help, Sander, and the link to the Hawaii topic. I replied to that person, though I'm sure I'm much to late in order to help with his decision.
