Up until now, our Webmaster Extraordinaire Tim has been taking care of the exhibits area of Stamporama. However, he has so many wish list items, tweaks and maintenance on the rest of the site that only he can take care of, that I volunteered to take over maintenance and development of the Exhibits.
There are several things I want to address:
a) I notice that a couple of my my own, most recent, exhibit submissions have disappeared from the index page. This is probably due to an inadvertent uploading of an older index page backup. If you have submitted exhibits in the past, please check the index page for your exhibits. If you have had some disappear, please let me know by Private Message. The exhibit will almost certainly still be on the server, just not in the index.
b) I want to update the technical specs for the Exhibits area, for example larger images for new Exhibits (it will not be possible to improve older exhibits unless new images are submitted). The current recommendations represent a much older Internet -- we can do better now.
c) I will rewrite and simplify the process for submitting exhibit images. I will consider all suggestions, however cannot promise to implement them all. Ideas for methods of getting images into my hands (methods you understand) will be welcome. For example, Google drive, Photobucket, FTP to Stamporama -- email attachment is absolutely last on my list!
d) I will reorganize the index page. Suggestions for methods of organization and presentation will be welcome, but again, cannot promise to implement all suggestions.
Please feel free to discuss here any other issues you think should be addressed about the Exhibits area of Stamporama.
