Moving the A-Z section

#1

Post by admin » December 4th, 2018, 8:16 pm

Following a suggestion from one of our members here, we are considering moving the A-Z section from its own unique page on the forum and incorporating it into the gallery of the forum,
The suggestion was that if the A-Z was in the gallery, then any member could add their own images to the A-Z, whereas now only the admins and global mods have this capability,

While we think this would have several advantages over the existing A-Z we would like to hear from you, the members, on what you think of proposal,
to help you decide, We have created some sample gallery albums under an A-Z setting so that you can have a look at them and see what you think of the idea , (its just the fungi A-Z that has any content at the moment, but you may add some images to any of the other A-Zs to get a feel for the idea)

edit: please note that you will need to be logged in to view the example galleries, as it is viewable only to members at the moment.

We have also added a poll on this post to allow any member to vote for their choice of action on this subject, with a couple of choices on the layout, (the poll will run for 7 days)

If the majority of members vote in favour of this change, then we will set up the necessary albums in the gallery,
Obviously, this well need to be moderated by either the admin or mods to ensure we don’t duplicate things etc,
but we think overall its probably a good idea :)

so please have a look and see what you think of the suggestion, and please post your comments on it here in this thread,

I'm all for it, although it will need some monitoring of the content so as to avoid having countless images of the same species listed, so its going to be a yes for me.

having the ability to add your own images to the A-Z would make it a worthwhile change in my opinion :)
