    Uploading from your computer is only option,why not link the pictures from my own website?

    Because often people take down their websites or their image hosting service gets to much traffic and them images on this site go dead. We'd rather have them locally so we know they will be there for people to see.

    We will be adding attach from a URL later though but it will still save locally.

    If you go to your profile there is a little counter box. That wont show comments but it will show how many projects and reviews you've done. Other than that it's a database call that we will do to find the winner.
