I searched to see if this question has come up before, but couldn't find anything.

I didn't notice this until today, but how do we go about accessing our photo albums on this site? I had a bunch of pictures on here, and I don't see any obvious way to access them since the new site design.

And in a related vein of things going missing...how do you put someone on "ignore"?
What have I said now?
I think in your profile settings there may be a way.......... I'll have a peek, yep, if you click on your profile, there is a tab for 'ignoring'.

I haven’t looked for the photo albums before this post, so I looked and didn’t see them either. Venture will have to chime in about those.

I'd never put you on ignore, Dogdaze! Perish the thought. I just started noticing that things weren't either in the same place they used to be, or they don't exist anymore, since the redesign of the site. I did look on my profile and saw the category for "ignoring" but it's just a list for people you may have placed on ignore; I couldn't find a method for actually putting them on the ignore list. And there used to be a "media" category for accessing your personal photo albums, and I can't find that (or anything that may have replaced it).

If you 'hover' over the member info of the person's response (try on mine while reading this thread) you will see options to ignore me....

The photos are note lost, they're just not converted yet. Very soon the new gallery will be up, I just need to find the time to do it.

Thanks Venture. I'm glad it was an issue with the site itself, and not that there was a big obvious "photos here" button that I kept overlooking.

So, any estimate about when the albums will be converted?
I was waiting for Xenforo 2.1 to be released, and it just came out today. So I'm finally going to tackle the upgrade and gallery install over the next few days.

This is the least confrontational site I've been on. Hard to believe people use the ignore function but never underestimate the power of snowflakes... ;)

So, is it safe to assume that I'm shouting into the void on this particular topic of where did all of our photo albums go?? It's been 15 months since I originally asked the question, a year since I got a reply that their return was imminent. Are they hidden somewhere on this site and I'm just not seeing them?

Forum upgrade this week. Photos will be up then.

The problem is I have the photos, but I don't have the context as to who owned or uploaded them originally. I've debated for months how to cleanse them and organize them, but I think it's time to just throw them up and let folks like yourself pick through them and add them to new albums.

Sorry for the wait. Accept my apology one last time and you can publicly go ape shit on me if I don't have these online this week.

I appreciate the response and the apology, Venture. I'm not going to go apeshit, because there's no point in that. But how many photographs are there to look through? I know I probably had a few hundred in all those DIY threads I posted, so we're probably talking thousands of pictures, right? And now they'll all have broken links, so there's not going to be an easy way to re-add the missing photos from the threads they were originally in?

Those DIY threads you are talking about, I assume they linked directly to the pics in the old gallery? If so, I'd say those are broken forever. Assuming the pics you need are soon uploaded, you could potentially re-link them by editing your old posts, but it would be a manual job.
