Congratulations Dom!
What an afford for some time of hard but good and successful work. There is some sadness next to the good feelings for you: Now Fotothing is on the stage to commercial - till now we where (with it) a nice non-profit-community. Hope things don't change rapidly and all of us stay here further on.
To look at all of your picts is alway so amazing, thank you all.
Dom: go on designing fotothing.com as you did till now! It's just great. Thank you!

I trust this means you'll have more time to get the tagging/graffiti/vandal/trash off of here before they ruin it for everyone else? :)

Well, it's clearly a weight off your mind, in a sense, and I trust you've banked something off the deal, so well done Dom.

I would like to hope that the site will retain the community spirit that attracted us here in the first place. I don't want many more features, I want the Fotothing vibe and the buddies I have encountered here.

Have you seen www.chihuahuaturismo.com? there's a lot of great pictures of landscapes and tarahumaras indians.
By the way, the success in this photo it's because of the calid colors in it, mostly red

Was wondering why we had gotten bombarded with new members! Too fast for my finger.
Glad all is working out for you. Sounds like a good deal.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm sure there's a new page with new members to check out. :)

A now a shiny new Server Dom? :-)
Jul 28 2005 18:14 GMT cleftref PRO
the "Recently Updated" list means that a picture doesn't appear there for very long now with so many new members and therefore many photos are being missed - difficult to add to a friends list when you miss the pics in the first place and they miss yours.

Can the numbers of pictures be expanded to deal with this problem please?

That would be better but still not very scalable.

Congratulations. Except the google ads are broken in firefox and display on top of the navigation. :)

I ve said this before, but thank you for this site....
I m in no way a photographer or even an amateur, but being able to share and delight my senses with the images of many people here is amazing,most of the ppl here are gifted....
I can stay for hours clicking from one friend to the friend of the friend and ....well, no words.
speechless and full of emotions!

Jonathan, download AdBlock and get rid of the pesky google ads...

Dom, can we have a 'previous' and 'next' photo link on each page please? Underneath the main photo? Gets a bit clumsy using the top nav bar after a while.
