Hoster needed
« on: August 18, 2007, 04:35:15 PM »

Ok right now me and my friend are working on "wampics", the a... Ajax Powered Images Hosting Service, here is a GUI for it:

http://fedrick.deviantart.com/art/WamPics-Images-Hosting-58689589

So, folowing things are done:

1. We solved the problem with customizing the
<input type ="file"> so now it looks same as like it is shown on the design(visit the link above).
This was really really hard to do, some of the web developers still think that it's impossible...

2. We did the progress bar.

3. We made the code valid.

4. File upload is fully functional now.

Todo list:

1. After Uploading the image display the light box with the image links(BB codes, thumbnails etc.)

2. Finish Up the Css template(based on GUI design of course)

Browsers Tested in: IE 5.5./6/7, Fire Fox 1.x/2.x, Safari 2 and higher(even beta 3),
Opera 7.x/8.x/9.x, Camino all versions.

Known bugs:

In Safari if you choose an image, then cancel your choice and choose again the same file - Action will be ignored, it just wont to anything.
Right Now We're trying to figure out How To free the memmory buffer of the object to fix this bug.

So now we need a hoster. We can only offer "the Hosted by Tada Link" for return.

I think 2 gb of space should be enaugh for start + the unlimited trafic. I know it's really strange to ask such things but We can garantee that
the Wampics project will become popular very soon as well as your name...

Interested Persons Please PM me here or Just E-mail me:

I could do what you ask Sandrrix, but there would have to be more in the "offer" than a "hosted by..." link. Bandwidth costs money where I come from.  ;)

Do it now... later may not come.

Lol yeah I know that Bandwidth costs money, that's why I need a sponsor :D

If you have any suggestions about "what else can we offer beside that hosted by link..." just go a head PM me :)

We can place your banner in the lightbox with image links... we can add you to the developers list, well of course in that case you'll have to help as a bit with php coding :D well I don't know, feel free to suggest your idea :)

Perhaps a good description of what the purpose of this new site is... would help attract a potential host. Do you and your friend want to run this site as an alternative to posting your creative work on Deviant Art... or were you wanting to set it up so that anyone around the world could upload their images to galleries... to share with the rest of the world?

If it is meant to be wide-open to anyone... then you would need to ensure that no one could upload unacceptable material... like porn, hateful, libelous or slanderous stuff... the rules are quite stringent on that sort of thing in Canada. And the site would have to carry policies and rules, especially on protection of privacy issues... My servers are located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada... so Canadian rules and regulations would apply.

Nothing is unlimited sadly. I can put you on a 10MB dedicated line, but the most it can do in a month is about 6000GB.  Can you tell us more about what you want to do without giving away business plans and how you plan to make money? I host some designers from opendesigns.org for free and would consider doing so for others if I knew more about it.

Key :D

It's an Images Hosting...  not an Art Gallery(well of course if you want so, you can upload you artworks too as well as photos) :D It is Similar to ImageShack.us.. I thought it was abvious... Cuz I didn't mention anything about the DeviantArt Alternative.

I know that I would need to ensure that no one could upload unacceptable material... like porn, hateful, libelous or slanderous stuff...
But as you maybe already know it's imposible to determine the image type or what is displayed on it if it's  not uploaded. There are some guys called "Moderators" who are working on it and are cleaning the server from unwanted files. That is the only way... Nobody inda world can show you better way to do it.

Uploaded images will not be displayed on our website. Website is just an uploader application... it's up to uploaders mind where he want's to put his image.

No it's not an alternative! It's just a free images hosting service! Not for us, for any1 in the world.
I have the domain name, I don't have the host... the host(the FTP itself) is the place were I want to set it up.

Thanks for explaining how your project will work Sandrix. In other words... it is (or will be) an online file storage bank... with no files displayed to the general public... and each user must be a member and will need to login to upload, store, view and download their images?

well not exactly,

there's a free hosting plan available... and free users wont have to login... they will just upload an image and get a link for it... that's all :)

Then they will paste their link in the forum post like this and image will be shown in the thread.
