At this point in time we simply don't have the time to dedicate to updating the site. We'll see if these things can be looked into sometime in the (hopefully) not too distant future

I think a user count is interesting. You can display the number of users online & the number of registers users online.

...Umm... that came out wrong. I meant that we could distinguish between users and registered users on the *existing* site stats...

fossil: we're allergic to cameras winking smiley

Both sites seem to be pretty quiet at the moment. I'm wondering if there's some server issues at the moment, I keep getting pages timed out. Anyway, as of right now the two sites have: - 5 Registered Users online. 263 Non-Registered Users online. - 31 Registered Users online. 446 Non-Registered Users online.

Pictures of me exist online. And probably not that spectacularly hard to find if you can put some of the peices of the puzzle together. But I'll just let that one haunt you at night smiling smiley There's certainly not any on here winking smiley

howa 'boutta bit of python magic to regulate the size of the thumbnails? found some real simple shit somewhere talk to me if you interested

What do you mean regulate? Filesize, image resolution..?

i'm talking about the size of the thumbnail; they would all be the same size
sometimes people upload a pic that is "tall"... that's fine and all, but the thumbnail is also tall as hell and it kinda fucks up the page

this is an example of what i'm talking about (although this one is much "shorter" than some of them)

...Anyway let's just slip off topic for a second here and imagine that you're in charge of some online art gallery/community where members can upload images and have them displayed for the world to see. As part of the site's design every image has a square thumbnail that links to the full-sized image.

We can think of this as a few steps:

Loading the image and passing it to our function.
Cropping our image so we end up with a square.
Resizing (100 x 100) and saving our thumbnail.

#!/usr/bin/env python

import Image

def thumb(image):
size = list(image.size)
image = image.crop((0, 0, size[0], size[0]))
image = image.resize((100, 100), Image.ANTIALIAS)
return image

if __name__ == '__main__':

image ='sample1.jpg')
image = thumb(image)'sample2.jpg')

This really just defines a new user function named thumb() which we can then use to create our thumbnails! It starts by converting the images size to a list and sorting it in place so we have the smallest dimension at the beginning of the list (this value is then used while cropping our image). The next part then crops and resizes our image using the ANTIALIAS filter (better quality) before returning the new image....

this was taken from [] check it out if'n you get some spare time

I don't mind the tall ones so much, it's the wide ones that piss me off...

The problem we founnd with cropping images like that was it could cut out certain parts of the image, and allow users to hide what the image really was etc. We thought it would be better for users to be able to see the image in it's entirely rather than just a small part and then getting a shock when the rest was loaded fullscreen.

Oh and as for the redesign, I don't think it's going to happen. Alot of the 613 code was written to be fast, and the html is scattered thru out the codebase rather than being kinda seperate (easy to edit). Also alot of the users have expressed a liking to this UI so i guess it wont change anytime soon.

As for whats happening in the background, we're currently investigating other 613 possibilities so as always stay tuned.

Haha porn613 as a cash cow. Come now darkklown, it could happen.. as soon as all the 613 sites stop haemorrhaging money.

Plus613 makes $0 a month
Porn613 makes.. I dunno. Probably $0, haven't seen a cheque in a while. It's made about $300 total, compared to ~$5000 running costs in the same time.

But none of this was meant to be profitable, porn613 was just meant to relieve plus613 of all the porn, which it's done, so I guess it's been successful.

But who knows what's next? Look into your crystal ball...

ahhh... yes i guess that would be a problem to try to use on this site...
especially with uploaders like wt and shadez lol no telling what kinda horrid shit they might try to sneak in here
you might try to get involved with whatever ad is using i don't know anything about it but the webmasters there claim it's doing a pretty good job paying for the site (although they certainly ain't on nearly the same scale as porn613...)

The site issues we've faced always come back to mysql. I believe this will be the last site i ever design to back into mysql. I'm sick of all the problems it faces.

Should be ok now.

I like the UI of this site, but i´ve had in mind for some time to suggest changing this forum to phpBB or vBulletin or similar. I think it would make the discussion easier in a way, and things more clear with functions such as search etc.
And anyway the feeling would be mory "cozy" for the discussion, at least for me; how about others?
And one thing i´ve been missing, it´d be nice to know who all are moderating here, who was the original founder of the site etc.

bayern: it's amazing what details can be found by clicking "about" at the bottom of the page smiling smiley

The founders of the site are myself and revert (who no longer works on the site). DarkKlown is now the core developer (not that there's been much development in the past year or so).

The moderators were all announced in a thread about moderating, but if I recall there's Shadez, Temuchin and Woberto. Fossil Digger was a moderator for a time, but has since resigned his post. started in november 2003. started in may 2005.

Together they have displayed over 90,000,000 images (and burned up I-don't-even-want-to-know terrabytes of data). We'll have to have a beer when we break the 100,000,000 mark. Maybe somebody can give us some money. By my VERY rough working, I call that 2.5 years online, or 912 days, or nearly 100,000 images per day displayed on average (and rising). Not bad eh?

bayern: Also FYI, we originally where going to install a phpBB/vBulletin type forum but wanted something that'd totally intergrate into the site, and not be a site with a forum. So coding the forum has been the way forward. I should be getting some free time in the nearby future and i'm looking at adding avatars and private messages, aswell as some other features that major forums have. It all just takes time.
