Cat asked for opinions, and got some.

Now we go with her decision, just as it should be.

OK, so I don't have exclusive rights to create a gallery and anyone is free to do so but it would have been nice to have been given the chance to come to a decision about my plans before someone else went ahead and implemented something. I guess the discussions are over.


That's the problem with communities, they are made of individuals capable of thinking and acting for themselves. People wanted a photo gallery, they made one. Whether or not you have on one here at freebodyzone is still entirely up to you. I'd like to make a cynical comment on that post but honestly I just don't understand the offensiveness of this to you enough to choose an appropriate one.

Because that's stealing her thunder. If she wants to integrates a gallery to the board, this photo group messes up her plans (which aren't quite clear yet).

Anyway, the link have been removed and Eric apologized. I don't see it as a big issue between civilized adults.

I remember when this site first started there were pictures on it. The accompanied the stories. At some point they were all removed. It would be nice to have prctures on the site again. I voted Yes. Any talk of going around Cats plans is wrong and shold be put on hold indefenetly.

Near as I can tell Cat got so mad about everyone making their own without her that she nixed plans on it forever.

Probably for the best. I was just flicking through an old folder of nudes the girlfriend and I took when we had the time to be more creative and arty than we are now, and it led me to wonder why there are no galleries here. Sometimes, things are perhaps best left said with words.

Actually the reason that I like this site is that there are no photos. Sure one doesn't have to look at them, but at the same time a site like this without any photos makes me feel that the quality of the site is being increased.
Photos may just bring people that only want to look at the photos and not add anything to the site.
I understand that one may force that to view the images one has to be a member, but I assumed that membership would be free of charge and then it's not that hard to be a member anyway.

The site is definitely better without photos. It keeps most of the voyeurs away. Nobody has ever been able to give me a good reason why someone would want to display their naturist photos to strangers unless they were to go with a report about a beach or something. You see enough random bums at the beach without needing to see photos of them online.

I would assume the same reason they would want to display ANY photos to strangers, clothed or not.

Good one, Becca!

I agree with you completely - there are already plenty of photo sites, and many of them carry the same pictures. We don't need another of those. I appreciate the quality of the discussions here, even if I don't join in a lot, and in many cases pictures would change the discussion; also I expect the site would be a lot more costly to run, it could run into censorship issues with hosting organizations, and consume a whole lot more bandwidth.

Let's stick with, and build on, what Cat has given us.

BTW this is a really old thread and I believe the issue has been dealt with; why not lock the thread?
