Love the new faster website overall... Like that you enabled the uploader, the ability to edit a photo while it's in the queue... I occasional need this feature to add or change a name... I like the old upload style better, a little harder for me to navigate the photos I want to upload when I do multiple, but I guess it's something I'll get used to. Now if only you can figure out a way for me to upload as fast as tempp. My hard drive is filling up faster than I can upload.p.s.- thank you, Chainer, for this site!
tempp does not go through the queue (instead uploading straight to the site) because I found a long time ago that I liked his uploads so much I would approve them from the staff queue almost all the time, and pressing the Yes button became a chore.Regarding him getting credited for pics others upload: when we find a pair of duplicate pictures, we do a merge on them. This has the effect of keeping the larger picture by default (because picture quality is more important than other considerations), or if they're the same size, the older one (to credit the person who uploaded it first). All the favorites and comments are moved over to that one picture, and the other one is deleted. tempp's pictures are often the one that is kept when this algorithm is followed in a merge.
Anything new is going to take some getting used to, but my feelings are positive so far.It does seem considerably faster than the old site. Well done!Minor gripe (and I may be the only one who cares) but the old site would show the upload time and date for an image, while the new site just shows something like "three days ago." For someone like me, who has a sometimes frantic work schedule that only permits me to visit GWM once every three or four days, it was nice to be able to log the time and date of the last image I viewed, so I could tell where I was when I left off before. The new date is a bit too vague to make that easy.It's not a big deal, I suppose, but I did like the old way of dating photos better. I don't know how difficult it might be to change back, though.
