    Absolutely.
    Go to the thread in my sig, see how we're doing these visual feasts, and start a thread for pix of your favorite city or region.

    Does MP have enough space to store all the photos we upload? :D

    Fantastic. Maybe we should start a thread somewhere for cemetery photos around the world.
    What do you think would be the best forum for them?

    Actually in all seriousness this is probably a good question at some point! :)

    Maybe under your Mile Post Visual Travelogues -- would a separate thread there for Cities of the Dead be too macabre a name?

    I like it, the thread could go under General Discussion | Travel, and be included in my directory.
    Be sure to include the "Share your photos" line in the subject, so it stands out and is identifiable as being one of those visual travelogues.

    You can, but you can also click on the icon for "upload a file" and post up a photo from your system. Like this:

    Is there--or should there be--a limit on photo size? If everyone posts high-res versions it could take up a lot of space. Is there a way to post a low-res version with a link to a high-res version elsewhere if the poster wants to share his/her images in high res? Just thinkin' . . . who knows how massive the HOM massive servers are ;)

    MP seems to put a limit- when people try to post 3 mg images it just times out. Some other sites have a notice in advance of the max pixel and kb size.

    I think people should stay under 800 px wide, and under 120 k, even if the site supports more- not everyone is on a high bandwidth connection, and large photos could lock up the visitors browsers.
