Uploading Scenes Just Got Easier

One of the biggest problems with Sleepycomics.com in the past, was the scene uploading system. Because I was on shared hosting with Dreamhost, I couldn't really go overboard and allow unlimited photo uploads. I had to make users upload images to free photo sites like Photobucket and Imageshack. This was a pain, and a huge barrier to letting people easily upload scenes. Free photo sites also impose their own rules on images, and the images frequently get taken down. Photobucket even stopped allowing hot linking unless you pay them.
Well as of today this is no longer the case. I've successfully moved my code and images to a new web server where I have a lot more control. I changed the scene upload system so you can drag and drop image files, and they will automatically upload to the server. It's fast and easy to use!.
I also further separated a scene's images from its other download links. So there is a separate section for adding links to YouTube, deviantArt or other pages.
I've been pretty excited about these new changes, so you will see lots of updates to the site in the next few weeks!
