How come the Epik Landers don't have a way to upload images to a gallery?

I often use different images for various industries such as Education, Cannabis, Jobs, etc. It doesn't make sense to re-upload. same image to the lander all the time.

If I had a gallery of my own images this would be easier and faster.

I've suggested this too, because as a photographer, you can be a little more creative than the current stock photography available.

The only thing I see wrong with this is that Epik would essentially be hosting an image that a user uploaded. If everyone in the world had a good heart and mind, this wouldn't be an issue. However, there are some pretty twisted people. Potentially, they could be put in a bad place because someone could add inappropriate to even illegal photos to their servers, giving the media another facet to attack them on. Implementing moderation seems like a logical fix, but this really would just complicate the matters. An Epik staff member could approve a seemingly appropriate photo of a beach, but that photo may have a copyright and not be allowed to be used for commercial work (a domain for sale).

I really can't think of a way that Epik can implement it without them ultimately becoming the center of unwanted attention.

One idea, this could be for only trusted and vetted accounts.

Yes, will discuss with @dadan about that UX change. Reasonable request.

There is also some discussion of video landers -- landing pages with brief, fast-loading videos that play in the background. What do folks think of custom video landers?

I would love custom video landers @robmonster!

We have seen some domain brokers use domain videos but it doesn't seem that popular currently.

Maybe with the proper landing page it would be a hit? @dadan
