Now that SM is ending what is going to happen to all the photos we all have posted in the gallery. Is it poof they all disappear. FSM most likely won't post them.

I'm really hoping the Gallery photos are somehow "archived". Got lots of photos on there....pretty proud of them!

Shouldn't take a lot of work to add to the FSM Gallery. It's the one thing I would miss the most from our beloved magazine..... it's like having the Contest Cars Annual every week or so!

The process for submitting photos at FSM is somewhat different than SA was/is. FSM has an upload link in the gallery which brings you to a different page on the Kalmbach site. It's not a direct upload like it is here, so don't hold your breath waiting for your photos that you submitted here to just show up at FSM.

I'm with you on this. However, the process for posting photos here has always been an issue. Members that don't know how to add pictures in posts rely on the gallery. I really don't see the gallery being an option further down the road at FSM. The gallery here at SA gets updated more often than FSM. Last time I looked at the FSM gallery it was last updated 4 months ago. I really think it's time for those that rely on gallery uploads to look at other options. Whether it's a paid account like Fotki or a free upload to a site like Postimage, the process isn't rocket science. Your provided with links that you simply copy and then paste into your post. All to often the majority of gallery uploads here come from members that either lack the knowledge of posting images or simply can't be bothered with the process. It's not that complicated, do some searching on Google or Bing and you'll find videos showing the process. Think of it this way, you can show more of your builds more often without waiting for someone else to approve your photos and then adding them to a gallery. By showing more of your work you'll also be participating in the forum and engaging other members.

That's what I want to do, engage other members to post photos. I took these photos out of my Fotki, clicked on copy photo, then brought it here to post and clicked on paste. Done.

Hi PlasticCrafts,

 

We are working on the plans for the website, Forum, and gallery. For the timebeing, they'll remain as they are. The process for uploading photos to the FSM online gallery are different because every photo is considered a submission to the Reader Gallery in the magazine. From the submissions, a Reader Gallery is selected for the print publication and then others are curated for the Online Reader Gallery.

As for the delay in posts to the online gallery, this is a hiccup that I am now working to correct. We will definitely be including scale auto subjects in the mix going forward.

Regards,

Tim
