I have a few things to do to bring back some of the features we've lost. FYI, I've recently (like, this morning) engaged Monty as Associate Webmaster to help with some aspects of administration and management for the site. What homepage features in particular do you miss?

BTW, I am moving this thread to the "Our Community" forum.

Thanks. It was rather a surprise to me, too, but I haven't seen any evidence that congrats are inappropriate (e.g. "hey, Monty, how about you re-write the home page code in Java bytecode. By Tuesday." )

And I am sure, like me, you are getting the big bucks for this not for profit work :wink:

I see... :rolleyes: :smile: Well, I have no plans to fully resurrect the prior version -- I hope to enhance it into something better... so if there are specific features you're interested in on the homepage, let me know so I can try to prioritize!

THAT is a terrific idea, except someone had to maintain it :cool:

An alternate would be a slide show of identified octo pictures with a note of the identifying traits ... OR pictures of "parts" (eye spots, enlarged suckers, siphons, specialized arm (can't spell it without looking) ...

Even a script that pulls a random gallery photo would be something... and not require constant updating.

Agree with that. Definitely need some image up there.

We did have a script which pulled most recent from the Gallery. I'll look into incorporating that.

I think a ceph photo of the month would be a great idea, assign a "comittee" of say 3 or 5 people, or even just the staff, and once a month each could vote on the best picture submitted in a specific thread. There could also be different monthly topics to base the pictures on. such as:black and white, or thermal colors, or eating pics, or something.

sorry...............did I ramble there :roll:

I agree completely! It's taking me a little time to get accustomed to frequenting the home page instead of the forums page, but I think it works really well. Especially the latest photos... I never knew when other people posted gallery pics before.

I can take no credit, I fear. The home page is all Tony's work.

I am trying to learn the ropes of the forums part, but they've been working fine...

That said, thanks to Tony for getting the front page up and running! :biggrin2:
