If the issue between e-mailed and posted photos can be resolved perhaps the wording "recently contributed photos" would cover all bases.

Hi, this is off the topic thread, but I was curious about your group and went to your site. Did you know that you have a tab for "subgroups," but when you click on it there are no subgroups? As an aside to Mark, I think the subgroups tab should not appear if there are no subgroups. It seems weird.

As for the photos, I don't mind them appearing and agree they can be an asset. However, I feel strongly that either the language should be changed somehow, or the section should ACTUALLY show all "recently posted photos" as described. It's weird to show very old photos there (and have them described as "recent") just because they were emailed, while members are posting photos via the web much more recently and they're not showing up.

Happy New Year,

Our home page is attractive with the photos.

I hope the problem can be fixed.

Thanks,

I totally agree. If it truly consisted of ALL recently posted photos (emailed and posted), I wouldn't mind it (but still could not find much reason for it). As it is now, with it only being the emailed photos, AND the duplicates, AND the gaps, I'd get rid of it too if I could.

I dislike the feature personally, even without the problem, because I think it's misleading. It's called 'recently posted photos' but consists ONLY of photos that were emailed. I complained about that a long time ago. It might seem unfair, or at least head-scratching, to members who post their photos via the web. 'Wait. I posted my cat's photo an hour ago. Why is it not showing up in the recently posted photos, and all those photos that people posted months ago are there?' (not to mention, in duplicate...)
The feature is flakey at best IMO.

That photo section is only seen by members, just like other things on the home page that are only seen by members.

The issue is that the gaps and/or the duplicates make it an unsightly mess IMO.

With my work email address, I have to include an image with a corporate logo as part of my signature.  Would that count as a photo to be loaded on to the home page of a group?  That would be annoying.

Also, I am not willing to remove the messages with the duplicate photos. The message content should stay, and the only way to remove the duplicates is by removing the entire message. So I think this issue of duplicates really should be fixed if at all feasible.

I take it back, the bottom right square of the matrix is still blank. I think the photos "moved up" in the grid as more duplicate photos got added, and some of the blanks fell off.

That could be they are using plain text email. None of my members use that.
 
I have noticed lots of duplicates. I have asked my members to take off graphics when replying. Many still are not doing that.

It's the opposite. This problem only happens when people post and then reply to photos via email. However, i've been testing it in my test group and can't reproduce it there yet, although my real group's home page is full of the blanks. I think it has to do with people who use plain-text email to post photos.

Well, either I'm a liar, imagining things, or Mark fixed this overnight. The blanks on my real group's home page are gone today. I've seen (and been annoyed by) the blanks so often that my feeling is that Mark simply fixed this. The duplicates from top-posting are still there so hopefully that will be next. I think that it may happen only when people use plain text email.
