  Can't upload this morning. I know the system lets them know, so I suppose it'll get fixed in a few hours.

  As of this moment, 9:03 am EST, there are 12 entries in the Jan contest. NONE of them have a 2016 upload date. It appears Carolyn's problem is not unique to her.

  It's possible that no one is available for tech support today. So the upload problem may continue for a while.

  I just tried again and its not working. As a fellow photographer Martha M. suggested, we all have the resub option available. So for all of us Basic Gallery folks, who are allowed only one entry per day should take this opportunity and go over our faves which did not do very well in the past and resub.

  Hello,
I have a question, would someone here be able to tell me how I'm a contest winner, which usually means for me, EP twice and there is no new EP icons anywhere... December 29, 2015 and now January 7, 2016 and nothing is showing up.. I looked my gallery up and this is how I found this out. . Thanks for any help, RJ Photography, - Ritajane Smith

  Ritajane - are you asking why no EP's after December 29th? If that is the question, the answer is that the judges have not made that far yet. Judging has gone as far as about December 27th, I believe.

  Am I the only one that checks their gallery several times a day looking for new EPs? Then, when I don't see any, I go to the recent EPs tab to see what date they're up to......
Anything anyone wants to talk about while we enjoy FEBRUARY?

Cindy Koller   And I'm hoping the have not completed the 9th, as my photo on the 9th has no EP. No, Bob, you are not alone, but after the end of the month and they take down the photos I was too lazy to check EP's. I'm just frustrated because if I cannot get a read on what I entered, I don't really want to enter kinds of things they won't like in Feb.

  Hi, Puddin', my name is Bob, and, I'm an EP-holic!

I peeked at your gallery, Tracy, and, you certainly DON'T suck. I think Jim may have moved the EPs to the back burner while he's cookin' up some other goodies for us?

  It's nice to have this thread each month so we know where in the judging process our photos are. But of course with them passing over photos and then taking a second look later we can't be sure.

  Looks like they're still on 9 January, based on the EP page: http://www.betterphoto.com/gallery/dynoGall2.asp?Favpt=EPs

Just keep clicking this link and check the day that the top left photo was entered into the contest. That way, you'll have an idea of what day BP is up to for awarding EPs.

  Irene, yes...often. I think they only had 5000 or so photos for January, so it doesn't take them long to catch up. I wouldn't read anything into it.

But definitely check that link every now and then as it will help you gauge what day they're on, with EPs, if no one has posted on the EP thread. The link is found on the main "Contest" page.

  I did know where to find Editors Picks but for some reason I thought that it would change at the end of one month to current month entries.

I do like the static-date oriented lineup. The EP pictures used to be random.

  Note that the order is by upload date before date of submission in the contest. So resubs are way back. That doesn't disadvantage them in any way, I'm just pointing that out so people won't think their images are not in the contest or something.

  Good point Nikki. However, if they happen to have been selected as an EP in roughly the last three months (The approximate time-span that is included in that file) you won't be able to tell if they are currently selected into this month's candidates or just there due to the previous selection process. If they received the ep badge more than three months ago or received nothing before then if you see them in the ep file list, they are, in fact, alive for this month's contest.

  Not often it happens when all new entries get stamped an ep. But this month was an exception for me. Wtg BP.

  I did have five resubs that already had EP's so there's no telling about them (well, I'm not about to go looking for them, anyway), but other than that, this is my only skip out of 31 entries:
http://www.betterphoto.com/gallery/big.asp?photoID=15071404

And since I'm more than a little short on flowers at this time of year, I'll just resubmit it, probably as soon as the SF's come out. I don't like to resubmit before that, because you never know.

I have a Quick Question for you

It's about our Gallery update... we need to change the gallery to play nice with Google and all those millions of people viewing from a phone or tablet. (Can you believe it but desktop computers are being used less and less each day?)

So would please take a moment to take my quick poll?

Thanks!
Jim

  Jim, are you offering us black or white or other (IOW one choice for all and you want us to pick which that would be)?

Or are you asking if we would like to have three options to choose from (IOW I could pick black but member B could pick dark gray and member C could pick white)?

  Back to ask my question again, Jim. Is it possible for you to give us a choice of three colors so that member A could have white, member B could have black, and member C could have blue, for example? If that is possible, how do I respond on the survey?

  Hi Nikki and eveyone,

I have good news for you...

WE HAVE NEW MOBILE-FRIENDLY GALLERIES!

YES!

You may have heard me mention how Google has been pushing everyone to go to mobile-friendly pages because the trend is that viewers are now visiting pages via smartphones and tablets. Even though you might still use a desktop computer to do your photo work, most of the world is going to mobile devices.

It's been a long project, but we are now officially launched!

With the new design, Google will continue to give your gallery good search engine rankings, and more people will have a better experience viewing your photos.

Many BetterPhoto members also requested dark background options; the new galleries offer that as well.

Here is a quick video that gives a tour of the new galleries:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0WJwPBSOyc

In the video, I show you how, when you hover over an image or click the "View Details" link, you'll see any CONTEST BADGES too!

Yay again!!! :)

If you miss certain features, please feel free to email us with "Gallery Wishlist" in the subject line of the email and we will gather all requests. We cannot promise that we will be able to offer every feature, but if enough people vote and there is a possible solution in this new mobile-friendly format, we will do our best to deliver.

Go check out your new Classic Gallery, if you have one... and get one if you don't ;-)

Thanks,
Jim


P.S. If you're like most of us and change can be hard, please email me privately at the Support email or... be nice in the forum. Do unto others as you would them comment on your own creative work.

And if you love the new look, please help others adjust in any way you can.

This change is a huge improvement over what we had... and now many more millions of people will be able to enjoy and appreciate your beautiful photography.

P.P.S. THANK YOU to all who have waited so patiently for this improvements. I really appreciate you hanging in there while the team adapted to the new needs.

And THANK YOU to those of you who did my recent poll. Your feedback on wanting a few good color choices helped my designer and team deliver on what you wanted the most.

Have fun!
