On the old site was a tool where you can view the new uploaded photos.

I miss this tool really!

I agree with you, I thought that maybe it was just me not being able to find it in the clutter that is the new homepage, but if you can't find it either I guess its gone. It was the thing I used the most on this site.

This is, 100% necessary, as far as I (and most people) will be concerned. I haven't viewed any photos since the launch of the new website, and most people haven't as evident by the photo views. This is what made the photography views be easy, now its a pain.

I'm glad someone started a thread on this. I love viewing the new photos everyday, and I hate when silly cosmetic work messes it up. If it aint broke, don't fix it  Angry

In the Aviation Forum this thread has been discussing this issue. Viewing figures are worryingly low since the changeover, and this may be an important factor.

I believe this needs to be addressed as a matter of urgency. Photographers' primary motive for uploading is to get their photos seen, and if A.net now does not easily facilitate this then, together with all the other recent issues, the attraction to stay here may get less and less.

I guess that by making it harder for people to actually find photos they want to look at, DM will save a bundle in bandwidth charges, between that and the more prominent advertising someone probably got a bonus for this mess. I guess this was to be expected from a company that is IT/advertizing oriented rather than aviation enthusiast oriented. I let my First Class membership lapse until I was convinced that DM could run this place properly, but it looks as though I'm never going to renew it if this keeps up.
You would think that they would send some sort of online survey in an E-mail to the registered users to find out what their customer priorities and likes/dislike were before they just went ahead and changed things (for the worse it appears). I would imagine that photos would be the prime reason for most people to be here it certainly was for me. I can get over the fact that they get their content for free from us since we all love sharing our photos primarily and some of us are good enough to actually make a few bucks through the exposure from this site (by far the minority of course), but this front page change is a slap in the face to all of us who have contributed here over the years.

Guess what he meant was the tool where you can see how many pics have been added since the last reset of the counter. The thing was called personal frontpage and seems to be the Photo Tracker now which is not working.

Was there there from the start? I have a feeling that menu item has been added since the new home page went live.

The other problem is, as you scroll through the "new photos" pages, you get a sense of deja vu as many shots are repeated on multiple pages!  crazy 

As an example, photo # 1359415 appears on page 1, then again on page 2! As you go through the pages, you see lots of photos multiple times.

Come on DM, get this sorted out. The photos are the life-blood of a.net. If the visitors cannot find them, or give up looking because the keep seeing the same shots over and over, they will not come back!

Acontador,
I am very sorry, but it is not the same thing.
Here you see all the pictures added today.
With the previous tool, it was possible to view them by category.
And it was not limited to "today", but to my last visit. (sometimes, I don't visit the site for 3 to 4 days)
I thought it was the "phototracker".
I clicked on the link on the home page, to sign. But it doesn't work.
Please, make it work ASAP, or you will loose a lot of visitors.
That should not be too difficult, since the tool was available and working.
by the way, even if it is another topic, I am very pissed off by the new size of the "large" pictures (don't fit on my screen)
Changes : YES.
Regression: No

It's not exactly the same thing. I miss this one:



There I had all the pictures since my last visit to A.net and I could also only search (for example) only the Airbusses. I think that not every user has the time to look all "new photos added today". Personally I visit the new photos only once or twice a week (with this tool) - I think it is a very necessary thing for all "not everyday visitor" of A.net.

Please bring back this tool soon! Thank you very much!

Well it looks like it is back...sort of. Just the search bar below my username is the 100 photos since your last visit 4 days ago. It pulled up all 1.2 million photos on the site when I used it, but I guess its a start and I'll hold my breath to see if it counts and retrieves properly the next time I try to use it. My thanks to whomever tried to put it back up.

Also the top of last week, last month and lats year have also been removed. I only ever check the photos occasionally, so would always just click top of the last month to see some of the better shots added recently.

This doesnt seem to be possible at all now, there is a "one month or older" option in the dropdown, but I want one month or NEWER.

A bit of a disaster the new home page really!

This really needs to be changed. The old way of having a link right there saying top of all time, 360 days, 180 days etc. was very nice and easy. If I wouldnt have read this post and the screen shot by jorge1812, I would have never clicked on that link. Its confusing and annoying.

For me it was the same. And I couldn't reset it.

But now, there is a big change on my screen:

WOW THAT ' S IMPRESSIVE !!!!  Big grin

But I have the feeling it is going to be ok in a couple of days.

likewise, clicking a "see more" link suggests to me it will take me to a new page, showing more than just the top 5 photos, not give me a drop down list of search options.

one word: "suggestion"

A spin off from this viewing problem appears to be when you open a picture you get a thumbnail of both the previous and the next photo.

However, when I open my pictures to use this facility, after the second or third shot I am into someone else pictures, not my own. This has to contribute to lack of views and to people giving up because features no longer work correctly.

I haven't tried with anyone elses pictures yet, but I would be interested to see if anyone else experiences this.

Hi Mods,
In your last update, you say the tracker is back.
It is only partially true.
Yes, I see the number of pictures added (990 tonight)
But if I try to watch the pictures by category, then it doesn't work.
For instance, even for the category "new airlners" I get the messages saying no picture added to this category....
(classic planes, or accident related, or cabins, I can understad. But no new Airliners....)

Hi mods,
the photo tracker reset function is still unstable: it has worked properly for about 1 week.
Yesterday I had around 200 pict. After watching pictures, I clicked on reset. Today, when I start A.net, I see 8615 new pictures. And when I click on some categories, I see 1 or 2 weeks old pictures . After clicking again on reset, I keep 8615 new pic added since your last visit 0 day ago.....

You are not alone on this. A while ago, it said 43 new photos added. Now, it says 8123. The 43 was accurate, as I reset it this morning.

Hi mods and programmers,
Maybe this observation will help you.
But on the last 2 weeks, I have observed the same:
photo tracker works well uring the week. But on Thursday's, the count goes back to the time you modified the web site. As a result, it suddenly jumped from 82 to over 13800 !!!
