Gallery Updated

Post by Flash » April 17th, 2015, 4:57 am

When we released our Gallery in October 2014 it was meant to be a place where fans find all interesting images at one place. But the main idea was to create a platform where users can share their content in form of fanart and screenshots. Unfortunately this didn't worked exactly as we hoped. One of the reasons is of course the lack of fanart and especially screenshots but also some design problems of the gallery.
Even though a filter was available user created images were no as accessible as they should have been. The new design approch will hopefully fix this. Instead of simply displaying all images at the front page ordered by time images are now strictly order by their category. This way there will always be a certain amount of images displayed for every category. I also decided to remove some categories that weren't used much. The current categories are Fanart, Screenshot and Official Artwork. I hope this will encourage more users to submit their images to the gallery.

The old images are not deleted but some won't show up on the gallery anymore but only via direct link. You can still upload images without a category to use them e.g. in the forum.

I have thought about posting fanart herre, but that will happen until we can play TOS.
Thanks for the encouragement! :kis:
