First, you need to setp an account with one of the free photo hosting sites (smugmug, photobucket, etc.). Then upload your pics to it, and use the links they provide to post the pics back here...

go to photobucket.com and get a free account. Then upload pics, and paste the img code into the thread. Welcome aboard btw.


Edit: dangit backwoods bruced me on the suggestion!

from photobucket, place your cursor under the pic and a list will pop up. copy the direct link. then on the tool bar at the top of this reply page click the fifth icon from the left. a small window will open, paste the link into it. this will put the image into your reply.

Dang, that is easy. I have been taking the long way. I told you I don't have any internet savy.

Just a hint, one of the HTML codes under the pics is for forums and boards an already has the img code. You can just copy and paste it without clicking on the picture icon in the thread. Saves a step.

Come on, wspfrk! You can do it!!! Welcome to the game! If you can get the pictures posted, it will keep me from having to ride out there and trying to get the pics myself!! I figured out how far it was from my office, but I was in the truck today and could not go for it...

SO don't give up on us... Just ask if you need more help or advice!

Oh and another hint. If you have multiple pics to post, you click the check box next each one in photobucket, then go down to the bttom and click generate code. It will generate the code to post all the pics that you want at once.

Rule question / Suggestion... Since part of the motivation for this game is to keep it moving rather quickly, is anyone interested in a time limit to post a new tag or should we wait and see if it is a problem?

I was thinking of something like giving people until midnight on the day after the grab. That way you can pick it up after work on day 1 and place it on day 2 and post pics before midnight on day 2... ? ? ?

Guess we can wait and see how it goes... Just a thought I had....

Jackson, MS Local Tag Map created:


View Jackson, MS Local Tag-O-Rama in a larger map


When you make a grab, please include information about the location (possibly even GPS coords) and any history, story, etc. about the location.
