Photo uploading feature may be a good additional way for users to get rewarded. While we we’re setting this feature, I’m thinking if its really worth it? Yes, it’s really worth it, but as an additional service and not something where users are rewarded.
It’s like saying, “Hey come upload photos on our site, chew up our server resources, and we’ll pay you for that”.
If we reward users for it, the more they are encourage to upload, and the more uploads means more disk space and bandwidth consumed. This means higher bills for us. Its not a problem if we can make profit from those photos to cover the costs, but as of now we haven’t find a good way to market or profit from it
So this brings me to the conclusion to keep “Photo Uploading” feature as a free service for members to enjoy their stay and share things to the world in a more visual way.
