    The four pics at the top of the main page now seem to be random, and often quite old . . . until a couple of days ago, they were the four most recently added pics, which meant one could see what was being added. Now, one can't.

    Can it be put back to the four most recent, please?

    Agree with Michael.

    Another problem, quite often some of the row of four photos don't show. See printscreen below, made just now.

    So far they've always showed for me, but they only show the top 4 albums with the most views and comments.
    Doesn't bother me, just thought, I mention it

    I agree with Colin and Michael, i preferred it when you saw a preview of the latest photo's to be added to the gallery's.

    I think that the current situation (random photos shown in the "header") is a disincentive to post new photos - it certainly is for me.

    Surely more preferable to show recently added photos? I might also suggest invoking a new rule which restricts the number of photos a member can upload to, say, two images in a 24 hr period (Naturescapes.Net are very strict on this in order to prevent "prolific shooters" swamping the galleries). I myself am probably guilty of posting more than this on occasions, but there have been some posters who have uploaded much larger numbers of images in one go - if there was a restriction it would make one more selective about what was uploaded.

    Doesn't seem as though anyone is listening to this - I will not be posting images again until we go back to the original format:

    I didn't know that there's / should be a restriction on uploads.

    Sorry if I crossed a border there.
