Are your miniatures homeless?


Recommended Posts

Well, first, a little backstory.


I tend to get ideas. Some of them are good, some are not. Sometimes I go overboard. I also tend to feel the need to flex my website programming muscles and give them a bit of a workout. On the downside of that, I can program like a madman, but I can't come up with nice designs. So anyways, I decided last week that I needed a website to post my minis. I don't know why I decided this, but for some reason I did. I sat down at my computer and started some programming. I went ahead and created an .asp website running off of a backend database, but while I was working on it, I thought: "hmmm, perhaps I can make this bigger". You see, I have a problem. I tend to make things larger than they should be.


So, I thought, well, instead of creating a website for just myself, why not create one for people that don't want to/can't create one for themself. So, I decided to make a website that I could use, and other people could use as well. About three days later, and viola, I have a website that both I and others can use. I have 20 gigs of montly bandwidth, and some hard drive space to spare, I decided to pony up the $8 for a domain name, and DisplacedMiniatures.com was born.


So, here's the thing, if you have pictures of minis sitting on your computer and you want to share them with the world, but you don't know exactly how, this website may help you out.


Anyways, I don't know how much use I can expect people to get out of it, I don't know how much use I can even get out of it, but like I said, sometimes I just get these wacky ideas...


If you're looking for a home for your miniatures, check out DisplacedMiniatures.com. To see what your site will look like, you can check out my site at: DisplacedMiniatures.com/buddylee.


It's all free, and as long as I don't run out of disk space or bandwidth, it will stay that way. Sign up is instant, and in theory, you can have a gallery website up and running in about 10 minutes.


If anyone has any suggestions or comments, that'd be great. At this point I'm not really planning on advertising this anywhere, but feel free to tell your friends if they need a place.


Anyways, that's it! I hope to add a way for users to add articles and links in the near future, and I'm open to suggestions and/or comments. If no one decides to use this, it won't hurt my feelings, but maybe some people will dig it.
