PPG to get a revamp

QuoteQuote:
Thank you for submitting your wonderful images to the PENTAX Photo Gallery. Due to your time and efforts, the Photo Gallery has become more of a success than we anticipated. In an effort to improve the Gallery we will freeze image uploads while we build a new version of this site that will provide a better user experience to our artists. You may delete your images or change your profile, however you won't be able to load new images at this time. The new site is planned to launch in late October. Thank you for your patience. You are still able to delete photos and update artist information.
Let's hope the new version of the gallery is more usable.

Yes it has been well over due for a update!
Too bad that it will be 3 months until we can upload again

This is when Ricoh - Hoya deal on Pentax Camera Division purchase will be finalized. May be new PPG site version will be called Ricoh-Pentax Photo Gallery (RPPG)

I'm surprised they have to close uploads because of this- it's not like we close the forums before a redesign

Assuming that it is a major upgrade and it includes the voting system, I can see freezing uploads just long enough for the queue to clear. That certainly shouldn't take 9 weeks.

Look forward to that... even if it means holding back on submissions. It's definitely due for a new, more streamlined front end, and it's good to see it going from strength to strength.

Hopefully Ricoh is going to treat it like the serious showcase that it should be. It sure couldn't hurt if they went through the existing images with a fine tooth comb too...

Maybe the 9 weeks is going to be used to sort the "wheat from the chaff".

May be they should consider making PPG app for Facebook for wider exposure to uploaded pictures.

It has nothing to do with the imminent takeover by Ricoh on Oct 1.

Even the move from Golden to Denver should really effect it in that way.

This was kind of disappointing to see when I tried to upload this morning. Does this mean the exclusive gallery here is going to get bombarded?

Certainly hope not. The two galleries aren't the same and PEG ought to remain the more 'exclusive' collection that it was designed to be.

Let's hope they'll offer a non-Flash interface this time.
html5 + mobile friendly design?
