Corporate Pinterest Account
« on: July 01, 2015, 04:14:05 PM »
Hi,

I'm going to suggest that Japanese Gardening.org sign up for a corporate Pinterest account. I think it might facilitate finding, sharing, and commenting on photographs a little bit easier than the forums do.

Hi Mike,
I did get your message on this topic. Sorry I have not had time to respond.  Time (or lack there of) is usually a limiting factor.  I like the idea of Pinterest too. 

In the past, we have lost many references to images when folks post them externally, then delete the external reference in the forum topic.  So there is a compromise between keeping relevant reference information for future forum readers or  making it much easier for folks to post images...

I so hope we can lean further into the social applications in the future, perhaps even have our own custom implementations.  Thanks for voicing your opinion in support of us heading that way. :)

I will post a topic on it for the board of directors.. Thanks again... Michael in Seattle.

You are able to pin pics on the JGO website now.  The JGO forums are closed to the public so pinning a pic here would not be accessible outside membership.  By adding pics to the posts directly, or albums in the gallery, we can ensure they are not lost when a flickr, bucket, or other service ceases to exist.  In case i dont understand correctly, we should look into the corporate account!

Thanks for the suggestion!

Sorry, I wasn't trying to nag. I didn't see it my sent messages so I thought it didn't go through.

Can anyone add a photo to an album here. So, for example, if I create an album for "Fences" can other forum users post pictures of fences to the album I created? Do internal JGO albums have links that can be pit into posts?

Sorry if this is covered elsewhere.

I think, Don needs to add an album for you then you can do as you wish...  In the past resources used (to store images) were a concern. Not sure that remains true....

Looking forward to your fences album. :)

Nice photos - wish JGO could use them in the World Japanese Garden Database!

Hi KT,
It would be great to have  you join in the fun.. I have been pretty active out there for a while now... Nearing 2,500 pins...  We could...  Open it up to more folks...  Adding them with the ability to pin in shared areas..... 

I have yet to follow up with Carla.  What do folks think.. Anybody else want in on the fun? :)
