Gawd I hate the new look of that box on the front page (http://newschoolofphotography.com/). For one, it links to the nudes forum which is problematic for those of us that log in from work from time to time (I used to be able to tell if a post was in a NSFW thread, now I can't), and two I have no idea how to tell which thread the news posts are in. Once I get to the (http://newschoolofphotography.com/forum) page it's fine, but ugh, it's Damn confusing.

I like the old style 1000% better...

I pointed this out a few days ago, the headline should be the thread title rather than the first sentence of each post:

yeah, that too. I might just turn those boxes off? I need to see what a non logged in user sees first though, I doubt they'd see FS, nudes, PIP or the like?

see how you guys like that, I changed it to be JUST the title and recent poster etc. I also added a google ad on the right while I was in there and deleted a few widgets that weren't doing anything.

now I need to get the front page to show ALL the categories though, not just "front page" items (or tag all the posts with front page as well as what they are now?)...

exactly! :lol:

this is something I need to work on more though. I forget it's "the face" of NSOP that a lot of new users might see and because I don't post to it that often it doesn't look all that great... I'm working on it though.

get rid of the "front page part" and put up nice user photos IMHO and just that keep it clean

yeah, I'd LOVE some sort of gallery tyler... All the solutions I've seen for that work from attached images though, not things we hotlink. I might be able to get it working with a flickr group though?

Yeah That'd be sweet but not everyone on here use's flickr. I vote try it though

OK, added a flickr slideshow on the sidebar for our NSOP pool... I know now everyone uses it, but it's free so you can if you WANT your images in there. Here's a link to the pool:
http://www.flickr.com/groups/newschoolofphotography/

I know I don't use it enough personally, so I just added a few recent shots...

Nice work, the front page is looking better!

Why don't you save and attach all the images from the SOTM? That should provide a few dozen photos for the gallery. Done. ;)

^ yeah, I might make a NSOP account on flickr just for that... but as it is now, ANYONE can share anything they want in that pool, SotM nomination or not. ;)
