Dear Mu-43 Members,

Most of you are familiar with our Gallery, a place for our members to host their Micro 4/3 photography: Home - Mu-43 Gallery

When you upload photos, you are given a choice of category: your own member gallery, one of our specific genre galleries, or one of our specific camera galleries. Greater than 90% of the photo uploads have been to the member galleries, which leaves the genre and camera galleries looking sparse.

Because of this, we have decided to delete the Genre and Camera galleries and ask that those few of you who have gone to the effort of sharing your photos in those galleries please re-upload them to your member gallery and/or share them in the forums so that we can continue to enjoy them. Please understand that we are talking about deleting some of the galleries, only. None of the forums (camera forums, genre forums) will be deleted.

Here are the galleries I'm referring to:

Member Galleries: Member Galleries - Mu-43 Gallery
Specific Genre Galleries: https://www.mu-43.com/gallery/specifi.../index644.html
Specific Camera Galleries: https://www.mu-43.com/gallery/specifi...es/index2.html

The Specific Genre and Specific Camera Galleries will be closed/deleted at the end of the month (November). We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

- Amin, Don, and BB


11/11 addendum:

We will not actually be deleting those galleries; we will be hiding them. That way, the images already uploaded to those galleries will continue to show in any forum threads where they have been embedded.

Hi Amin

All my pictures are in one of the defined specific galleries. I don't really know where the members gallery is. If I click on "red's gallery" all my pictures are displayed.

So I ask for some clarification :smile:

Thank you

Red, that link you gave will show all your gallery photos, regardless of the gallery it's in. Your member gallery is here: Member Profile - Mu-43 Gallery

When you click on "Upload Photos", you are presented with options, the first of which is "Choose a category to upload your images to". For that option, please choose "Member Galleries" from the drop down menu in order to upload photos to your member gallery.


Does this mean we'll have to trawl through our posts to find and fix the broken images?
Not necessarily. If you choose to move your images from their current specific camera/genre gallery to your member gallery (Photo Options > Edit Photo > Change Category), then yes, your forum images will be broken. However, if you leave your images where they currently reside, the forum images will not be broken, because we will actually be hiding the specific genre/camera galleries rather than deleting them.

I could be mistaken but I think some new folks may be posting in those galleries and may not have seen the notification. Are they locked for new submissions?
