Voting is now open in the two January albums. Please review the Voting Guidelines if you have not already done so.

I have created two new albums for February. I recommend that you first upload and edit your images in your personal albums and then move them in to the contest albums in order to avoid the permissions issue.

Site changes

I had attempted to modify our theme to use the great new logo that Bill was able to provide us with. Unfortunately, the theme for this site requires three separate sources files to be updated perfectly or otherwise throw the entire layout out of whack. I did the latter, so I had to roll back my changes. I have asked for help with this on the support site for the theme's developer.

Until then, there is a short version of the new logo in place of the big blue face.

I was able to fix the background color on the comments. Previously, there was very light gray text over a white background. Feel free to leave a comment if you like a photo.

New procedure for adding photos to contest albums

Some if not all of you have had an issue with adding your photos to the monthly contest album. If you add your photo directly to the album then you are unable to make any changes to it on your own. To date, I have had to manually grant the original owner permission to edit his/her own photo.

I have tried out the following procedure that works well. For each entry in the contest, add your photo directly to your own personal photo album. Edit the title and subject after you have added each photo. Finally, select "Move Photo" from the menu below your photo and select the contest album as the destination. After your photo has been moved you will be able to make all changes to it on your own.

January subject is "backlit"

I am officially announcing that the January subject is, "backlit". I am open to any twisted interpretation of this so long as the group is willing to buy it. If "backlit" means toe fungus in Mandarin then go for it.

Seb is next in line to choose the subject for February.

Please chime in on the forum discussion concerning when we should announce the next month's subject. No decision has been made yet on this.
