Hey along the lines of the calander, while it's being mentioned, is there a way to request a convention to be put on it? I'm not sure where we would make such a request? Thank you

There is, but you have to be logged in to see it. Once you log in, there should be a drop down arrow from events. Select submit new event, and fill in the required information.

I hope I'm not posting in the wrong place here, but approximately when will the photo replacement option be back, do you think? *__*

I honestly believed that was one of the greatest functions on this site and it made this site stand out from other cosplay sites like CURE, WorldCosplay and ACP that don't have that function. Sometimes I'll upload a cosplay photo, and oops! There's a zit on my face that I didn't notice. No worries, I can just quickly edit it out and replace the photo. Now I can't do that - I would have to delete the photo, and all the comments along with it

The ability to change a photo went away when we moved all of the photos into the cloud. When an image is uploaded, the thumbnails and medium sized versions are actually duplicated onto 20-25 servers around the world. When you visit a photo gallery, it will choose the server closest to you and grab the images from there.

This presented a problem, however. Because images are cached onto these servers, when a new image is uploaded over the old one, it could take 12+ hours for the old duplicated images to "expire" from the cloud's caching, and the old image would show in its place until that happened. Again, this only affects thumbnails and not the full-sized images.

With the new gallery code (almost ready to beta test) I've added something that auto-expires the old images and immediately replaces them, so it will no longer be an issue and photo replacement will be available again.

Just to keep this updated as it's been a couple of weeks - we have one other project currently being finished, and then we'll be looking to beta-test the new account administration panels. I anticipate we'll be ready to do this before the end of the month.

I will post an announcement here in the Site Changes forum once we're accepting beta testers. It will also be on a blank site, so it will not affect the current site at all or affect your main account in any way. Last thing we need is a beta test breaking the live site more than it's already broken.

The beta will start out very simple, with photo uploading, costume uploading, and a quick forum for discussing any issues. We'll then flip on the other site functionality as it progresses.

Anyway, I will post more info when we're around one week away from being ready.

Since everyone else is asking questions and getting answer, are there any plans to fix the reply to comments function? It's been broken/missing for quite some time.

I'm going to put up a better announcement in a few days (unless this one does the trick), but if anyone who has been watching this thread would like to assist with the beta test, please send me a PM. I just need to know your browser and operating system so I can put together a good mix of users. Also, please make sure you are on a static IP address, as I will be adding your IP address to the test server so that you have access to the test site.

I'll be looking for around 10-15 people for the initial test. If I get too many requests then I will probably be choosing people at random, after categorizing by browser type.

The beta test will not affect your live account or use anything from it either, it is a completely fresh site for testing purposes. You will actually sign up to it like you are a new user. The test site will mostly start off with the new photo uploader and costume administration, and will also have a forum for discussion/feedback.

So if you'd like to help out, drop me a PM. The test will start around May 1st.

Thank you to everyone who has submitted so far - please note that I won't be replying to the PM's until we're a couple of days away from being ready. So if you haven't gotten a reply yet, that's why.
