Picture Changes

I have implemented a new feature where all images uploaded now will need to be assigned to either a "Gun / Accessory Only" category or a "Other" category.

Gun / Accessory Only should include photos that are only of a gun and/or gun accessories. For example:
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/rap4
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/boom-stick
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/aza-ar15-0
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/unique-guns-1
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/another-gen-4-glock-pic
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/us-army-mod-1911
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/springfield-armory-xdm-w-case
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/thanks-greasypaws-completing-great-proje...

Other should include everything else including photos of people with guns. For example:
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/oh-mha-gush
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/too-much-camo-hey
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/kiss-it-kiss-it
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/carmen-electra
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/fred
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/my-11-yr-old-daughters-target-0
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/nice-gun-3
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/day-desert
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/its-gun-stupid-1

I have added a feature to the top of every picture that will allow any member to go through and quickly click whether the image is a "Gun / Accessory Only" or "Other". Please help out by clicking one of these options when you come across an image. Once an image has been categorized it will not need to be categorized again.

If there is any confusion please let me know.

Thanks,
Quinton

Seems to work just fine. So the idea is that if we all pitch in and 'do a few' the pics will gradually get into the correct categories. Once that is done you then setup separate sections, right?

Yessir. That is the plan.

You will see that on this page: http://www.gunslot.com/pictures?tid=8622 it will only list gun / accessory images and then there is a link to show all the other images on the right. I'm thinking we will probably want to change the main Pictures link at the top of the site to show gun / accessory only images to keep parents and children from getting upset by seeing pictures of naked women with guns. They will still be on the site, but in the "other" section and other will not be shown by default. Let me know your guys thoughts.

This is a great idea

like Pkato has mentioned in the past, it is only a matter of time before someone gets in trouble at work because of the semi nude random pictures (that and samD's disgusting emails..lol).

You click on a pic to bring it up. At the top of the pic is a banner. You click on 'Guns" or "Other". The banner goes away and it says "Saved, Thanks" You only see this on pics that have NOT been already 'categorized' so if you click on the same pic I already did, you will see nothing different than normal. Over time you will see fewer and fewer banners as we all contribute to this categorization effort. It will probably take several months to get all the pics in order.

You choose one of the two categories. No big deal. Very fast.

Quinton,

I have placed the "Russian train conductor " and "I wanna be a cowgirl3" in the other folder.
Maybe the query for "top rated' and "most viewed" gun pictures needs to be re-written.
Just a thought.
Thanks for the broom!

Quinton sir,

the ability for members to delete their own posts (in the case of double posts, posting a pic that has already been posted etc) would be nice. Helpful to the mod's as well, I think that we police ourselves pretty well around here for the most part.

Done. You should be able to delete your own images and videos now.

OK slow down guys.

I f you will scroll to the top of the page and click PICTURES you can still see "moved " images.
That's all I"m saying.
Schuy, I know you understand what needs to happen.
I really did go through "Oracle" and "Microsoft SQL" database training.

sorry hamp

" most recent, top rated, most viewed".
These queries have to be re-written or the big bossoms will still be on the home page.
They will still show up when you click on the pictures tab.
Why?
Cuz "we" are not going to quit posting and looking at them.

it's gonna be a problem if we do this randomly because we will encounter previously categorized pictures more and more. I wonder if there's a way to display uncategorized pictures only. Even better, you could get a rotation system going. When you click on one uncategorized picture and choose its category, the next uncategorized picture will pop up, like an assembly line.
