There were a few network updates that went into place overnight. The two major changes are in the "Members" listing page and in the photo upload area.

The members listing page is fairly self explanatory. Instead of the grid view of members, there is now a top-down listing with more options listed on the right-hand side to allow for friend requests, etc.

The photo upload area has also undergone a major upgrade. The bulk uploader now looks like this:


The old Java based upload engine is gone so if you were having problems loading that page, you should be able to use the bulk uploader now.

Just click on the Add Photos in the center of the box shown above and a browse window to your computer will now open. Select a few photos and they will appear as a listing in the box as shown below:


When you have all the photos you want to upload listed in the box, just click the upload button and the files will begin uploading. When the upload is completed, you will be directly given the option to put your photos into an album and you will also be given the option to put descriptions on your photos. Keep in mind that your photos won't show to any other users until one of our system administrators approves them.

We hope you enjoy the new changes.

PS. Keep in mind that the photo upload process goes much faster if you resize your photos before you upload them. There are hundreds of photo editing programs available on the internet which can do this for you. If you have a large number of photos to upload, we recommend PixResizer which is available for free here: PixResizer can resize and entire folder of up to hundreds of photos at one time which will save you huge amounts of time.

John, you did everything right, you just forgot that the photos have to be approved by an administrator before they will appear in slideshows, etc. Generally we're pretty quick on approving them, but you caught us on a day today where the admins were away for a few hours and didn't get to them for a bit.

Everything should be working now, if it's not, let me know.

I am having a heck of a time. I uploaded some photos, stuck them in an album but when I get the HTML code to do the slide show all I get is a black screen and a play bar that pops up. I never see any of the photos. So I went back and looked at my album and the photo that was tagged as the cover is not showing on the album list. So what is going on. Is there an issue?
