The planned improvements already sound good, however!
Good points, I'll see what we can do.

Re: Random gallery picture now on front page

The random gallery thumbnail picture we promised is now on the front page - see 'Gallery Showcase' at the top of the left margin.

Click on the picture and it takes you through to the gallery page where the picture is featured.

Only gallery pictures with a rating of at least 8/10 are shown.

Ian

PS On a separate note, I'm looking into a gallery picture of the day offering.

I think if you use the site with IE7, there's already a spellchecker provided. Also, if you use firefox, you can install an extension spellchecker.

What's IE7???

I'm sure many others have seen this, but I can't resist:

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.

Version 6 of IE at work so no joy there, but do use Firefox at home. Have installed the English - British dictionary at last update so will look later to see what needs doing to use it. Thanks.
