I asked this on another board but wanted to get as much feedback as possible so I'm asking her as well.

How do TGPs feel about you managing content on subdomains... how would the script react, and how would the tgps feel if you were to do this...

domain1.com = Where all html is stored

you host vids here and thumbs on the vid galleries
vids1.domain1.com
vids2.domain1.com

you host full images here and thumbs on the pic galleries
pics1.domain1.com = you host pics here
pics2.domain1.com = you host pics here

vids1 and vids2 and pics1 and pics2 might be on different servers.

Any thoughts on this?

Never thought about that.

I'd like to see what more experienced webmasters have to say about this.

I'm saying you submit domain1.com

domain1.com/gallery1/index.html

but vids and pics are hosted on vids1.domain1.com, etc.

Why do it that way?

Most tgp owners don't like sub domains.
domain1.com/vids1/file.whatever

thats one of the things i learned early. dont use subdomains at all when regarding tgps. prolly work with linklist though.

When I promote my own archives on my own domain I use subdomains as actually TGP owners have *preferred* to see the galleries on my own domain. There is only one place that didn't accept them but I was quite willing to make the exception. Everyplace else there has been zero problem.

A lot depends on the script the tgp is using.

Now if you're paying for accounts, submitting to a small list, etc, you might be able to explain the reasoning behind it to the owner and if it doesn't mess with their script too much they might just allow it.

If you're submitting to a lot of tgps that don't know you...that's another story. Reviewers are going through tons of submits in a short period of time and they like status quo type submits.

I'd avoid it
