Site Maintenance Complete - Please post wish-list

Site maintenance is complete. I had tried to put in the ISOBAP header image that Bill gave me some time ago but unfortunately the sofware is caching the old image and won't let go. After multiple posts to the software's support forum I have opened up a bug issue about it. Perhaps later on I'll have the top banner looking the way I want.

In addition to installing software updates, I have added the following improvements:

  • We finally have a Member Directory that is accessible when logged in. Look under the "Member Information" block to the right.
  • There is now a word processor-style text editor for blog entries.
  • I have removed access to the Forum. It wasn't used much and when somebody did post to the forum nobody noticed.

Please add your comments with wish-list items. I might be able to make changes or find plugins for those suggestions. Note that there still does not exist a proper voting module for the gallery.

Site Maintenance in Progress all Weekend

Members should not upload or modify any photos or posts until I have announced that site maintenance is complete. In addition to upgrading the software I plan to experiment with layout and new software modules. The site may appear completely out of whack at times.

I plan to do some long overdue site maintenance next weekend. The software is several versions behind, which include security patches against hackers. I also hope to get the WYSIWYG text editor working again as well as look for some other enhancements.

Please get your images uploaded before next weekend or wait until the following Tuesday. If the upgrades go horribly wrong then I will revert everything back, but you will loose any uploads or comments you leave over the weekend.

I have updated the monthly subject lineup. Please check to see if your name is on the list for the first part of 2010. Remember to announce your category around the 15th of the month prior to the month that has been assigned to you.

Voting is now open through January 8. Remember to judge each photo full-size and not by its thumbnail alone. You should cast exactly three votes in each category. Please review the Voting Guidelines if you have not done so already.

Contest entries extended by one day

There were contest entries from a few members whose photos were dated prior to October. I am delaying voting for an extra day to allow the members, who I have already contacted, to add photos taken between October and November. New members who joined late in November should not feel rushed to contribute during their first month.

Remember that photos contributed to the contest should be taken over the six week period between announcement of the next topic and the start of voting.

Typically you have until around 8:00 a.m. my time on the first of the month to upload your photos. You can check on my time by entering, "Time In Minneapolis" into a Google search or click on the following link: http://www.google.com/search?q=time+in+minneapolis.

Voting will be extended by a day until the 8th.

Update: More than one member didn't set the camera's date and time which led me to believe that the photos were taken some time ago. This could happen to any of us when batteries run out or we get new cameras. Please try to ensure that the clocks in our digital cameras are properly set. I'll try to send out friendly reminders when this occurs.
