frankly I think the blog system is crap, from a customer’s perspective that is.
I think the idea system is like texturelib and CGtextures because there no messing about you got a list of categories and it’s much easier to navigate to find what you want that way.
I think it would be much easier to upload your files through Ftp, on dreamweaver all you have to do is hit one button update any folders and files from your local dir to your site easy as pie ;D
I want BlenderArtists to sponsor my BlendUpload more! If they put a link in the sidebar and I got decent traffic I’ll be more motivated to work on other useful blender sites. My problem is it takes a LOT of time to do and it costs money, and frankly I’m not getting paid anything. At least if BA sponsors my resources I’ll get traffic (and hopefully some people will donate towards my hard work) otherwise I just feel like I’m coding for no reason
I think that blendupload site is good but for me personally I would have no use for it, if I had a tut site (like blender guru for eg) I would just host my blends on my sever.
who do you think your target is…?
CGTextures started off free… I dont see how this one could stay that was as well in the long run. There is the odd exception to these things, but once a site gets popular the running costs increase, and the owner will probubly see potential ways to make a profit from the site.
This is exactly what happened with CGTextures, when it first started out everything was pretty much free, then you had to register for the good stuff, now you have to register and pay etc.
The bazillion of people who put files on gay hosting sites with 1738272 ads because it was too large to attach to BA. Also people who have a blender site but have limited storage/bandwidth. My server can handle a lot of data transfers.
