Getting closer on this the headers are consistent. The dgrin.smgumug site will have different navbar. But the navbars on www.dgrin.com should become more consistent - I'm working on it!
egg-cellent, thanks muchly. I guess I'm unclear on the difference betwen www.dgrin.com and dgrin.smugmug.com from a user or technical perspective, but progress toward consistancy is a good thing. bravo
Just a suggestion, but how about adding a separate forum for macro photography separate from Other Cool Shots?
Macro has become a large portion of the postings there and they tend to move non-macro shots off the front page rather quickly.
Bump - Yes? No? Never in a million years?
Hello all who know how to do things.
Is there any chance of getting a nav bar (the one telling you which folder you are viewing: Digital Grin Photography Forum>Support>Dgrin etc) placed on the bottom of the screen as well? As ACDC famously said "it's a long way to the top if you want to change the forums" (I may be para-phrasing that a bit )
In this "I want in now" generation, scrolling back to the top just takes soooo long.
On the bottom right should be a "forum jump" dropdown menu which will show your current location and allow you to jump to any forum from the menu. It does not show on the homepage, just forum and thread pages.
Hi, we see everything here - sometimes we may not answer each posting, but know this: I and every single mod on the team read this thread.
Thanks for the posting and suggestion!
A suggestion. A standard dgrin web page always has three photos across the top, the left one is currently Dgrin Photo of the Year - 2006, the next The Dgrin Challenges Gallery of Winners, the next LPS Qualifier Finalists. If I hover my mouse over the first two nothing shows, the third will indicate the photo is from the "Last Photographer Standing". If you click on any of these photos you end up in the appropriate gallery containing the photo, but not at the photo shown. You can eventually find the photo by searching through the gallery (this can take quite a while), but I've often wondered if you could be directed straight to the actual photo instead, or be given some other information that would make finding it easier.
Or something like that...
I dunno, but I'll find out!
but it's not very user friendly where the average poster that visits here lives and breathes through a GUI. Obvious exceptions noted.
Also the seperation of the stickies on the Ubuntu forum is pretty sweet. I don't have to remember whether this is forum has 10 stickies from Andy or none. (no diss, Andy is just a sticky nut!)
Thanks for your time.
Being a fan of street photography, I have been disappointed in lookiing for it in Dgrin. I know under the "Field & Street" category you include "Street Photography" in the subtitle, but no one seems to use that for street work. In fact, including street work with landscape photography seems to be a very odd combination, in my mind. Ansel Adams with Gary Winograd?? Nah, it just doesn't work! Obviously your members feel the same way, because I have found precious little street work under "Field & Street" -- it seems to get posted under "People".
Why not change the name of the "Field & Street" category to "Landscapes" with something like "Rural & Urban" in the subtitle. It is almost as if whoever laid out the categories way back when thought street photography was all about 'the streets'
Or maybe you could combine street photography with a new photojournalism category -- at least that would be a better fit than landscapes...
Thank you for listening. Hey, I promise I will post some of my own humble attempts at street work in such a category if you create it
What I meant to be proposing...
Hey 1pocket, we hear you and we consider all suggestions
Bear in mind, more is not always better and that's something we strive for here. Making a seperate forum won't encourage more "street" posting, nope, the only way to do that is to post more "street" first... the chicken, or the egg?
Looking forward to your posts
Just go into any thead. You'll see both multiquote and quick reply functionality.
Any way we can keep up w/ the jonses?
am i search ignorant? no need to answer that:D
anytime i search it seems to not be helpful...
anyway, my main suggestion:
finishing room needs to be broken down.
threads for LR, for Photoshop, etc...
i want to start a thread, so i try to search first (which ends up kinda so so)
it would be nice to find topics specific...
(like LR tutorials)(if there are any)
One place to house it all would be great. A one stop resource.
I'm not sure if this is where this should go or not....I was wondering if there was a way that SmugMug and/or Dgrin could get involved, something they could offer, etc. with the Non Profit "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep"?
Even a sticky on dgrin in "people" or somewhere else that would be appropriate that informs dgrin viewers about the service and how to volunteer?
Maybe a "Giving Back" sticky, with a place to list different charitable organizations that photographers can get involved with?
Just my .02
