Why limit the number of posts to a measly one image per day - what we need are more images in the galleries not less - variety and not good quality " sameness" - the unique top quality image will always stand out - but finding it with a poor browsing system is the proplem here surely.
The max size of each post is what should be limited - not the quantity of postings - this would serve two important purposes - firstly it would speed up the gallery viewing (no improvement over the old DCM site here despite the promises - WHERE IS THE GOOD OLD SLIDESHOW VIEW ? ) - and secondly - it may appease the worries some people have regarding plagerism of their photographs - smaller files are less likely to be used or abused - hence putting the tiresome "terms and condition" arguement out of business - but maybe the powers that be want huge 5Mb images for publishing purposes - or am I being rather cynical now - either way- I for one want MORE images to browse through - as in my opinion - that should be the main purpose of any good gallery driven photographic website.
Please give us a decent SLIDESHOW viewing system - like the previous site had - so we can keep searching for those eye catching unique and quality images - then we can enjoy the "visual" stimulous our common hobby can occasionally give us - and we can thus comment upon - there are many great special images out there in the mass of "sameness".
So how about it Admin - an introduction of a good SLIDESHOW for easier browsing purposes - then the comments may start to return.
PS - Removal of the "spambox" - would also assist.
