I have registered the domain name and am willing to transfer it to anyone interested in maintaining it.

My idea is to have a place where anyone can go to find an absurdly huge index of pictures of ron paul to be used for campaign material, but perhaps it should be used as a site for pictures of rallys and support photos.

Present to me your ideas for implementing the site, and I will transfer it to whomever seems most qualified / driven. Or maybe I'll make it into a wiki so anyone can edit. What to do?

pretty good idea.. we could do it in a wiki format or public picture album format..

i have a server i could host it on.. i could host it on Community Server http://communityserver.org..

CS can also host blogs & forums tho too.. would a domain like "ronpaulblogs" be availble? :D

EDIT: Just checked.. "ronpaulblogs.com" is available................

My suggestion would be to make use of the Flickr API and have it pull all photos tagged with "Ron Paul".

Here's an example of one I made that shows what I'm talking about:

http://ronpaul.name/photos/index.php

This one displays only the 20 most recent photos on Flickr tagged with "Ron Paul", but you can use any number or any tagset at all.

There's an active "Ron Paul 2008" user group on Flickr, it's free to sign up, and it provides a quick and easy API which allows anyone to add pictures to the site.

good ideas.

the site could certainly have multiple sections

i suggest someone grab up ronpaulblogs as well (or any other good ones you can think of)

i can't do it until next payday

doesn't hurt to protect these valuable domains

Do you want me to do up a quick site using the Flickr idea?

Tell me exactly what you want in terms of individual pages.

Home page
========
small mosaic picture or two
brief explanation
link to http://www.ronpaul2008.com/
link to http://ronpaulmosaic.com/
link to http://rally.ronpaulplanet.org/

Pictures Page
=========
thumbnails of rally photos, etc just a huge thumbnail page

that would be a good start

My donation to this project is paying for the domain for (at least) one year.

Could we also put video -- raw footage for YouTube video -- there to share? How much space do you have?

Currently there is no hosting paid for (on my end).

Whomever I release the domain to would be responsible for hosting. I have only reserved the rights to the Domain Name ronpaulpictures.com for 1 year.

We certainly could include video, but I would suggest someone instead reserve http://www.ronpaulvideos.com and use that.

We should protect these valuable domain names immediately.

We haven't even gotten to the hosting issue yet.

Thanks Spirit!

Will you host what you make temporarily somewhere for a preview? Or email me the files?

By the way, I have a collection of about 100 rally photos from around the U.S., and a bunch of ron paul pics, + photoshopped pictures / humorous pictures too.

I suppose we need permission from everyone, but maybe just post them all and provide a way for people to object? Dunno.

Can there be a way for users to upload their own pictures? Should they be kept seperate from an 'official' gallery of some of the best?

just throwing out some thoughts.

Weirdness. It was working fine earlier. Now I'm getting a server error about too many redirects.

I'll try to get hold of Matt.

Well, with the Flickr thing, all it takes is a free flickr account, then anyone can upload pics and tag them with "Ron Paul". I can put a tutorial on the site.

As for having an "official" gallery, I could create one that only draws from a Flickr account that only a handful of people have access to.

sounds good. thanks for the good work!

Anybody else have some good ideas?

I think there should also be some sort of links page -- links to the yahoo graphic design group, the mosaic site, the rally site, and some other good ron paul image sites. maybe even a link to a google images search for 'ron paul'

not something that needs to be implemented right away, just an idea

Hey, guys. I'm working on it. Many other projects on my plate...


The key to what I'm working on is tags. I can set up a "rally" gallery, but then it'll be dependent on people to tag their photos with the word "rally" when they upload them to Flickr.

I'm including instructions on the site.

Done. :)

I actually registered it before I saw these forums, I have:

RonPaulInfo.Com
RonPaulVideo.Com
RonPaulVideos.Com

All containing youtube videos about Ron Paul. Each page (thousands) contains a banner/link to ronpaul2008.com

Each site is listed in google and the other major search engines, and I've spent quite a few bucks advertising the site.

I have created a simple website and hosted it @ http://www.ronpaulpictures.com

It's OK for now, and has a bunch of harder to find pictures included, and many pictures of Ron Paul himself.

This doesn't mean I'm married to the content. I'm willing to incorporate ideas or let someone email me the files to upload and replace it with something better.

Anyone else want to add to this project?

Also, I have set up http://www.ronpaulportal.com
