How about putting a copy of each person's challenge entries in our gallery links?

Aaaahhh - never fiddle after you've announced a new toy!

DJ:

Anyone can upload whatever they want. But the Gallery software and the Forum software are completely different, from different companies, and only marginally compatible due some clever hacking (not on my part). Comments in the Gallery are not linked to the Forums, and won't show up in Forum searches, or when you display new posts, so a lot of potential input might be lost (or simply split inconveniently) if some of the Challenge discussion takes place over there.

The Gallery comments are laid out to resemble the Forum, but are actually unconnected. The software is very new, and rapidly improving, so this might change.

Brilliant idea, Doug! I think you're onto a winner ...


Except ... er ... I've just noticed that rather personal details get attached to your post ... not sure about that!!

Thanks for pointing that out. That's a bug, for sure.

But the pages are made dynamically (ie: they don't exist until you call them, and are only then written from the database), so as soon as I get a bugfix from the author they'll permanently be OK.

Thumbs down

Doug,

I really like the gallery manager program! It makes it so convenient to view through thumbnails to check out the photos. I also like the added bonus of sending photos as ecards!

This will also be a great feature to view the challenges instead of scrolling through names. Many times I have gone back to an old challenge to show someone an entry I liked, but didn’t remember who did it so I had to go through each name until I found the photo. This program would make reviewing challenge entries so much easier!

WAY COOL!

-T

Don't think I don't appreciate all that you do on this site! I'm amazed at all of the upgrades just since I've been here! But maybe you could wait an hour or two after you announce something before you start fiddling again?

This new gallery feature is a GREAT addition! I do we could figure out a way to make it work for the challenges - I agree with T Paul that it sure would be nice to view thumbnails of the challenge entries so that we know which on we want to go back to! If you can figure out a way technically, I'm willing to help implement.

Jeanie

Everyone seems to like it, yet no one is posting anything
Go forth and post!

Like I said, it will be some time before we're able to use it for Challenges. But we'll see what happens with the next software version.

What about copyright problems? An in, people putting pics up in the gallery that are collages, manipulations, stuff like that, using copyrighted pictures?
