(I do like the new look of the photo pages though )

This makes all the trouble of organizing things pointless, because most users aren't going to want to go through the trouble of clicking over and over to get to your different galleries. Just a Photo Albums link on the main profiles page would be a big help! I'd hate to try and look at one particular costume by browsing through pages and pages on All Photos!

I wonder what's up though, the update is two weeks late?

For example, I see that several users went to the same con I did. I want to see if they have a gallery for it. Does it really make sense that for every profile I visit, I have to click on Photos, then a random photo, then click on that gallery, before I can access their full gallery list? I'd really like to see that full Gallery list on the side of the All Photos view. That way, it's easy to access and can be seen quickly.

Seeing a text list of the galleries is far different than seeing thumbnails, in my opinion, as the latter always caught the user's interest and promoted browsing. Frankly I don't even like looking through my own galleries with this other way!

These. So much.

If it wouldn't be such a pain in the patoot to have to re-upload everything to another site, I would. And if I wasn't so "established" here, I'd just upload all my "new" (read: yet-to-be uploaded pics of varying ages) elsewhere, too.
Upcoming events:
  • Tekkoshocon- Princess Celestia, Jubileena Bing-Bing, "casual" Princess Peach
  • Will be attending Balticon, Anime Mid-Atlantic, and DragonCon

Ginny Weasley and the Midnight Magic Party- the closest thing to a website I have right now.
