We plan on depreciating the gallery here at GliderCENTRAL. The gallery was started many many years ago before photobucket and other image hosting sites were available. It was a great feature to offer members for free, but for years it has been getting less and less use. Especially after moving the photo of the week contest here to the forums. I actually stopped allowing registration last year.

Another reason we have decided to nix the gallery is its extra software and I do not like the way the software is heading. I use the software for my own personal family stuff and while its works great in many areas it is also very limited for the amount of permissions we need for our members.

We have had a few ideas and I was gona wait till after our next upgrade, but we will be creating a photo subforum in Health & Hygiene, Behavior & anatomy, and Housing. Users will be able to create a new topic and add up to 5 photos inside. Just like the photo of the week, replies/questions to the post will be allowed. We feel this may be a better way of utilizing the forums instead of making people go to a seperate part of GC to log in and comment, it will all be in one place now.

I was also planning on eventually adding a photo subforum for the photo contest winners. Meaning after they win I just move the photo to the new subforum titled ex: 2012 winners and at the end of the year when creating a gallery for the new year I will remove the gallery for the past year.

After the upgrade, the galleries here will be a bit different then they are here now. They will utilize jquery and light box which I have already started using in new articles. Example can be found here, just click on a pic.

This also means that when we finally depreciate the gallery there will no longer be member photos or anything else. The gallery will be completely removed from the server and the database. While I have not set a time frame for the gallery to be fully depreciated, we will be moving forward with this quickly. If you have a gallery and wish to have your photos, please contact me via pm.

Does this include the SGGA and other glider gathering galleries? It will be really sad to lose those as most of those pictures can never be replaced.

For glider gathering we only kept them for 2 years than deleted them. No one has entered anything in the normal gathering in over 2 years.

As for the sgga, we will have to work things out but the software for the galleries will be deleted. I gave lori every picture we had in the sgga gallery when she requested it years ago, I believe it was around the 10 year anniversary. To my knowledge nothing has been done with them, but I will pm her later.

I went ahead and created the gallery forum for the Photo of the week winner. Starting with last weeks winner we will be moving the winners to the new forum and not the gallery.
