having to upload them to another site and then link them up.
You can upload pics ... goto reply -> upload attachment.. there is a filesize limit though. Then there's always imageshack type sites for hosting pics also.

Setting up closer links between this site and the adelaide city council. Michael Harbison obviously finds it useful
to log on to this site and view the public's opinion of projects.
True, we've got some good friends down at the council.. it'd be nice to have some bi-support going on.

However, do we want to become that entrenched into the ACC like the APPA?

Thanks, I actually spoke to Michael Harbison last week. He started talking to me when I was watching the Rundle Lantern
testing. It was interesting to talk to him about Adelaide and the projects going on. If we can establish some stronger
links then this site will become more accurate and informative.

I had a good idea....How about setting up an events section on the website.... It can include
threads on:

Clipsal 500
Tour down under
Big Day Out
Womadelaide
Fringe Festival, etc

Thank you for your enthusiasm, but we do have other sections in this forum where you can feed through your suggestion and the site administrator might access the possibilities.

Let's just keep this topic purely for discussion on supporting the funding of this site.

We're paid up till the end of 2009.. i.e. December. So we should be good. But it would always be nice to have hosting beyond a year.. especially as we don't have google ads on the front page any more to help with the costs.
