Re: Please use the 'Temporary Chat Section' for now

Now I'm confused as well, Azz. I should have read your post more thoroughly.
So, we won't have an album themed place on our profiles like now, but we will be able to post a thread & add pics to those as we want? Is that right?
I am glad we can post a photo more than once though, because often one pic can be used in another thread it's related to.

Will we lose this kind of spontaneity?
I think people are getting a bit confused here....

From Azz's earlier posts in this thread it is going to be easier to post pictures in topics on the forums.

It will hopefully all become clearer when it goes live tho (and I am hoping that isn't much longer!)
There will be a 'Photograph' section and members can start a thread (or multiple threads) of their own and add to it as they wish so 'Bathsheba's photos' thread will contain all your photographs and instead of them being in an album in profile they will be in a section of the site

In addition to this there will be a 'Photograph' section and members can start a thread of their own and add to it as they wish so 'Bathsheba's photos' thread will contain all your photographs and instead of them being in an album in profile they will be in a section of the site
Which will presumably mean that others will be able to add to that thread too. So it won't be a private security box.

Dex I think we should just wait and see and it will all become clear.

On previous 'editions' of sites we didn't have the things we have here now, photographs could only be accessed by linking to a 'host' site like Photobucket, then came the Albums and Attachments feature and we could link directly to photographs on our PCs making things much easier .

Each update offers new and easier features and we soon get used to them and forget the old ones.

Thanks Meg. Wasn't criticising, just stating what my understanding of what it means.

Dex I am not quite sure how it will work having yet to see it but on our sister sites where we didn't have 'albums' if you started a thread of your photographs others did not post their pictures in it and we can ask that is made a clear .

Thanks for clarifying that Meg. I did think, as I posted, that my interpretation couldn't possibly be the case! I really don't know why I went ahead and posted
