Difficult To Navagate

Is it that I am dumb or is this web site difficult to navagate through. I am getting used to some of the sections but I am still having problems understanding some things. For example in the galleries there are Galleries that I feel would benefit by adding a small description of what or how to search for what you are looking for. What is the "Rework" Gallerie? If you delete an image and then resubmit it after repairs does it go to the Rework Gallery or does it go to the New Image gallery? Image rankings, Author list, and wallpaper search, how do I use them? Am I am confused, stupid or normal? Help!!

"Am I am confused, stupid or normal?"

No comment... ;-)

JK. Well for a start, the "Rework" gallery is for images that have been uploaded to the "normal" galleries, which have then been altered in some way by the original author or (as is usually the case) someone else. So for example, if you uploaded a photo that had power lines in them, and I edited it to remove them, I might upload my altered image to the "rework" gallery with your permission. Most of the mages in that gallery will say who uploaded the original and what it was called, and might have a link to it.

"Image rankings" is simply a list of all the images on caedes, which you can sort by various categories, displayed along the top (click on the appropriate link to sort the images by that category).

The "Author list" shows all the members that have uploaded images to the sites. They are ranked in order of overall c-index (there is a post which shows the exact way this is calculated somewhere). Clicking on the members name will display all the images in their personal galleries.

"Wallpaper search" is a basic search engine which will display the top 20 images which match your search criteria. It's fairly basic and is only really usefull if you are looking for a specific image and can remember some of the words in the description or title. I believe that on the next site upgrade caedes will be improving the search function. Note that when this happens the site is to be completely redesigned with a new look, so the navigation will probably be completely different from the way it is now (any updates on when this might be happening mr caedes? ;-)

Hope this answers all your Q's. Don't forget to read the FAQ if there's anything else you aren't sure of, or if the info isn't there just post your query here.

Thank you Samatar. I am wondering if I will ever need to tap into these places but now I at least know what to expect and where to look for items. The rework Gallery looked like it worked that way as I have seen names other than the aurthor. I just wasn't sure of the way to handle the idea of someone changing anothers image, It now makes more sense. Now if only there was a spell check. :0)

We should probably add descriptions to the top of all the main galleries. I'll get the mods to work on that. ;-)
