The newest feature at the beta site, "photos":http://beta.lomography.com/photos is just great, don't you think? Now don't lie, because we know that you have been uploading, voting and commenting like never before! In fact, the weekly upload figure more than doubled from an average of about 3000 pictures per week to 6600 since photos launched! We know that we gave you some incentive (other than the ability to test this awesome new feature of course) and we are now happy to announce the first winners for the photo upload rumble! 10 piggies coming to 3 lucky (or hard working) winners :)

    Thanks a lot!! And yes, I really like this new "photo" feature, it's a perfect way to brows through a huge amount of photos: just sit down, relax with a cup of coffee or tea, chose a tag/camera/camera/place and there you go for a fantastic stream of pictures! And have the possibility to rate the shots (a bit like the jpg's favorites) and leave comments, that's what I like!! And I really discovered new shots I never saw before (although they were uploaded since a little time by their owners) or re-discovered some shots I liked before, but there I can rate them! :))))
    Thanks again for the piggies (it's the cherry on the cake...;))) but really thanks for this new photographic immersion feature of the beta site!!! :))))

    Oh, and will there be the possibility to know the ratings of the pics directly on the homes? And rate them directly there too? Because if you're visitig someones home and want to rate a shot you like but that you must find again in the "photos" to rate it.....

    @lucas: no doubt that you're working hard on the new homes, and I'm aware of the huge work you're doing!! W:)) I'm very excited to see progressively all the new features coming out and when all will be finished the new lomography.com will really be a great site! Sure that it will be different from the old homes (and I understand very well all those who are a bit confused with the new beta) but I'm sure that everybody will fully appreciate the new site when all will be finished! :)))

    Great work with the Photos section! I'd like to ask if you could make the database connect similar tags that are the same but spelled a little different? Right now there are 3 instances of the LC-A+ in a list of the 5 most popular cameras (the other two being LC-A and Fisheye2). The same goes for other tags like X-pro/Xpro/crossprocess, etc....
    I understand it's a timeconsuming process to link everything by hand, but isn't there a dictionary or something that can perform this task automatically, like when you misspell something in a google search?

    For the new homes I'd love to see a summary of comments/ratings... A list of both my own shots that others rated/commented on, but also a list of which shots I myself have commented so that I can easily browse back and see if there was a reply later...

    Lastly, I think I mentioned this a long time ago, but as we're still in Beta stage, how about a "sticky" post for feedback to keep the Magazine posts cleaner? I reckon the posts in the blog are only active for a few days... A sticky that stays on top, for all the feedback, could be of great benefit for everyone...

    Anyhow, you guys are doing a great job! Thanks!!

    @ anarchy

    we are actually working on linking the tags now so hopefully in a day they should be cleaned up, there are a lot to go through

    as for the ideas - great well look into this for sure, and for the stickies - there is the email beta@lomography.com that is meant for these type of feedback remarks, so send us a message if you have some more ideas

    Just kidding, I know you`re a passionated lomographer but don`t ask me if you spend to much time on lomography.com, it`s not in my hands to judge about that ;) :D :D :D

    But if you ask me,no :)

    good job to the winners! "woah" - i thought my 50 images uploaded was a fair amount, hahaha.

    while everyone is suggesting things, i have a suggestion...when you upload photos to a Camera Review or a Lomolocation, it would be brilliant to be able to select images from your lab instead of having to upload them from your hard drive all over again. :D
