Since there seems to be a lot of demand for a new front page, I can make that the next priority. If other members of the community are willing to help, it would be great. I have all the skills necessary to do it myself, but it will get done a lot sooner if I have help.
I asked SteveR about the missing subforums, and he said that he just wanted to simplify things. He doesn't mind adding more forums if there is demand for them. If the community wants one or more of the old subforums back, just let me know, and I can make it happen.
Anyone who wants to get in touch with me can PM me here. I visit this site at least once a day.
I think that the ability to leave notes on specific details of an MOC is one of the draws of flickr. I've been pondering writing a plugin that would allow our members to leave notes on photos in the forum.
Yes, Id be willing to help. I cant do much technical coding, but I can do background art, articles, fonts, etc...
The old subforums would be good...if its something that can be done easily I say lets go for it. Otherwise Id wait till we get some things like articles back online.
Thats true...and that would be awesome.
See thats another thing: I dont know that trying to compete with Flickr is the best idea...instead of trying to beat it at its own game (which would be hard), we ought to work to make this site important for OTHER things...things that Flickr cant do...like instructions, articles, forums, etc... Make sense?
I agree. Does anyone know off the top of their head names of folks that moved to Flickr? Moreover, does anyone know their Flickr accounts?
