Online Reader Gallery - Problem?
Posted by dswebb on Saturday, January 9, 2021 5:12 PM

Is there any particular reason why the most recent posting to the online reader gallery shows up to me as 9 months old? Is it just me? Or is it broken? Or is it really that old?

Does FSM need someone to take over that posting job? Wonder how much time it would take....maybe some volunteers could do it? 

Just wondering...

The updates on the gallery have not been as regular as they used to be for a while, and no, its not just you. It does seem that there don't seem to be as many in the mag either. Maybe people are jst not sending in their pics.

I am a Norfolk man and i glory in being so

Well I know they have at least a few they haven't posted.  Smile Thanks for letting me know it's not just me that's seeing old content. 

I can completely understand that selecting/formatting/editing/etc. the printed gallery images would take some time and be quite an effort. But it seems to me that for the online stuff you would simply have to sort through the submissions, pick some you wanted to use, perhaps crop them, and post. Because they wouldn't have to be of as high quality as the printed "few." Not a huge effort....but of course I could be missing lots of details. 

Maybe a group of volunteers could perform the service if FSM doesn't have the staff to keep up with it anymore, as it appears they have not. 

Anyway, just a thought...

It seems to me that it would not take a lot of effort on FSM's part to update the gallery on a weekly basis.

Perhaps FSM might consider what was discussed in this thread -

I know it was shot down, but I think it just might work in both the members and FSM's favor.
