Hi everyone,

I know the site hasn't had a big update in a long time and it's badly due for some modernization, especially a new responsive design. I've already begun the work, but before I get too far into it, I felt it's better to get some input from all of you, the real users of the site.

I already have it on my list to have a new responsive design and modernize the photo uploader. So, please let me know what else you'd like to see change, what's good and what can use improvement.

Hi Ray,
Regarding the photo uploader I find it comfortable that most of the settings (like location) remain when trying to upload a new photo.
But it would save some time if you could add a field to enter the airport (name, code, whatever) which would make it a big quicker than clicking through the airport submenus.

Regards

Andreas

Hi Andreas,

Yes, I know the list can be long sometimes but if you press the first letter of that particular location on your keyboard, the selector will jump to that area. For example, if the city is Fairford, you simply push F on your keyboard, and it will get to you the beginning of the Fs. I'll see about adding a quick Auto-Fill feature, but no guarantees. ;)

Hi Ray,
of course I know that Option, but especially for the US you first have also to select the state before the airfields Pop up...

Another request would be to give the possibility to change data field inputs after the photo has been accepted. Previously this was only possible via the message function and most likely also a lot of work for you. How about enabling such changes that can be checked and released by the crew?
Within this scope you might enable later changes to the watermark as well?

Regards

Andreas

Got it. I'll see what I can do.

Also, I'm curious how you guys feel about the dark skin? Should we continue with the dark theme, go light, or a combination of both?

I think the darker colour give a nice contrast / frame when looking at the photos.

I like the dark look too, but modern designs tend to lean towards lighter colors. Maybe I'll do a combo and have dark areas around the images and light everywhere else. We'll see...

It would be great if you enter a serial and press 'search' the system would give a list of all current entries to choose from. This will avoid multiple entries (in version detail) with the same air frame.

Hi Joop,

But, sometimes there are multiple entries. For example, F-14As that were later converted to B or D models. One has to verify the data after the Auto-Fill every time. There's no way around it because the Auto-Fill simply picks the last entry in the database for that particular registration or construction number.
