LQ doesn't like it when people try to get a free ride promoting commercial stuff or boards, fora. If your intent is to get some comments and the site isn't Yet Another Linux Forum or commercial site then I think you can safely post the URI.
Thank you Spawn! Finally an official "greenlight" from a moderator. If LQ's management feels that it's against their interest, please remove this thread.

Okay. Here goes,

No. It's not a commercial site. It's a site to test some concepts I have in mind. It's still under testing though.

www.justsg.com

Basically it's a site which allows user to publish photos via MMS (Multimedia Messaging System) using their cell-phone. The photos will be published on the site almost instantly.

For e.g: If a user see an interesting scene on the streets, he can use his mobile phone and snap a picture of it. If he wants to share this picture, he can compose a MMS, attach the jpeg image, send the MMS to a email address. Within minutes, the picture will be published onto the site automatically. Net users can post comments on that picture.

I do not have any control over what will be posted onto the site.


If you are interested to try it out,

You need to have a MMS enabled cellphone and GPRS connectivity.

1. Compose an MMS.
2. Attach a Jpeg image.
3. Enter some descriptive text of the MMS.
4. Send the MMS to p@justsg.com
5. The image will appear on justsg.com within minutes automatically.

What are the charges?
1. Your normal GPRS charges.

I've only spent 2 days to get the site up and running. There will definitely be problems. I'm not surprised if problem arises. Yes. The layout sucks. Im sorry if it's an eyesore. Bear with it for a while.

The time used on the site are based on my local time. Sorry about that. Will fix that soon.

This is spam if you're not giving the URL. And this should be in general, not *nix general.

Putting a small unobtrusive link in your sig is the best way to go

Your site is not have the wow factor I thought it will be. However this is a starting point. Do you think people will spend money to have their picture put online when there are free sites which already allow photo upload for free and immediately refreshed on the world wide wide for people to see?

My suggestion is that you find a way to get control. A lot of the bigger sites that do this almost instantly turned into gigantic cesspools as people discovered they could take pictures of their naughty bits with their phones.
