I just had a thought... it seems to me that the upload limit keeps some people from using Side 7 more often. What if something like a "sketch upload" was instituted, in which basic users could post something that's not necessarily their best work, but something they'd like to share. There might be a limit of 5 or so daily sketches posted, but they disappear off the site after a couple days or so. I don't know how feasible it would be, and I guess you might have to add in some recognition to make sure people don't upload the same picture constantly, but it's an idea.

Interesting idea.

This ties in with a couple of other things that are planned:

  • The basic upload limit will be increased to 200 for Basic accounts.
  • Users will be able to "buy" additional daily uploads with Account Credits.
  • There's a good chance that Basic users' daily upload limit will be increased to match the Premiere level accounts.

a feature I would like to see is a way to delete comments on your images. I just got a big spam and I am trying to delete it but I can;t figure out why. All I can is to make it private

Was the spam from "jweelzaidi08"? We got hit by a lot of stuff from that account in the last day. Still looking into how they did it, since it would require a person to do it and bots are blocked.

it was from that guy ququJerseys

also, a way to report comments or posts?

I've locked down both of those accounts. You can report on posts and comments using the Help & Support menu. But, yeah, a more direct way to report something would probably be better.

I'd like to report another spammer - pcheapcoats. They flooded several of my pics.

Posted: 28 Aug 2014, 01:55 AM

Sorry to hear about that. Working on removing this spammer's posts. Thanks for letting me know.
