    Plus I would like to see a new gallery added for humorous images.
    Almo-
    It's not possible for me to have one page for broadband users and another for dialup users. It has to be the same page for everyone. I'll try adding another row of thumbnails and we'll see how that works. Do you guys use the "all images" link below the search box? I use that when I want to look at all of the latest photos. You can also set preferences for how you'd like them sorted. I have mine set so that I see "Most Active." Those are either the most recently posted or ones that have recently had comments posted.

    About changing the upload so that you can only upload to 2 galleries, if other people like that idea, I can make that change.

    Almo, you should be able to add the humorous gallery, yourself. Give it a shot and if you can't, I'll happily add it. I think it's a good idea.

    I thought this issue was put to rest...
    I guess not?
    I for one have been making an effort to check out and post photographs to the galleries more regularly.

    The extra row is just what I was talking about, sorry I was not more clear. Right now we can choose up to 18. I would like to have the choice of 30 or more personally.

    I think this would solve a lot of quirky problems.

    Boy I am just shocked at some of the negative feedback I have seen here, but I won't let it phase me. The galleries are everybit as substantial as the forums. Everybit as important to this website. It is often enough the first section newbies really delve into. For me it was the reviews. For a long time that is all PR.com was to me, but when I found the galleries I really became a member of this site, and it eventually led me to become an even bigger part of this site as a Mod. The forums have done the same thing for many of you aswell. Myself included.

    Think of this as well. I have my gallery linked in my email sig line, so that everybody that gets an email from me gets an invite to the galleries, and by assosiation this website and these forums. It's all one big e-Circle of photography! Lets not cut our collective nose of to spite or collective face.

    Yes. But not that one

    Actually, I'd like to be able to users choose system preferences for photo uploads. I'd like to continue to require people to choose equipment when they upload. That's an important part of the gallery. But being able to choose a system that it defaults to every time seems like a really good idea. Or maybe we could have a cookie that remembers where the dropdowns were last time you were uploading.

    Because of limited engineer time, I don't know how soon I can get someone working on this. But I think it's one area worth putting some effort into.

    No Access

    FWIW...

    I have no idea how many other people have this problem but I just can't get to the galleries. It finds the web site but brain freezes forever. It's not a speed issue as I am on a T1 link here at school and the connection isn't doing anything. This makes it impossible to see the galleries much less comment on anything. This is true of all three browsers, IE, Firefox, and Opera so its not a browser issue. How many other members, if any, can pretty much only read the forums?

    Re: No Access

    The galleries load faster for me than the forums do. Go figure.

    Michael, does the school have certain web sites blocked? I know at the schools where I work, they do. They are blocked by urls, and also key words. Could the school be picking up something in the Gallery url? Just a thought.

    We definitely would like to hear from everyone else that might be encountering this problem.

    Re: No Access

    Michael,

    I don't have a problem loading the Galleries here in Sydney, using Broadband ADSL and it loads very quickly.

    I am wondering if there is something that the school might have done to block the galleries loading. I know generally that you should get an error page, but you never know what people do these days in IT.

    Just a thought.

    Good thought. I have no idea if web blocking is going on. They do monitor activity... I don't access the web site from home anymore as all I have is dialup. I'll give it a try tonight and see what happens.

    Lara,

    You and I think on the same level too much I think. Look at your last post followed by mine, timeing was 1 min apart, but not apparent whilst typing it out to either of us at the time.
