So some of you have probably noticed that we've had the ability to put images at the top of our profiles for a while, similar to many social media websites. Today I replaced that system with a new one that does the same task but has more options.

The new system allows users to upload multiple images to their profiles! Profiles with multiple images will automatically slide through each one every eight seconds. Visitors can also mouse over the image and click on the arrows to see a particular image. Currently profiles are limited to 10 images, but that might change in the future. You can see an example of multiple images in action on my profile:

The only draw back of this new system is that the old images you had on your profile will not carry over, so you'll have to re-upload any images you want to appear on your profile.

This new system also controls the images you see above certain forum sections like the van dwelling and boat punk sections. If you have any images that would look good for a particular forum section let me know!

I clicked on the link for your profile to see the example and I couldnt see any photos. Are they only visible when viewing the forum on a computer, because I'm currently on my phone?

I have to observe this new feature because it should allow me to display my favorite paintings. I think this new feature sounds cool.

I'm not savvy in Art History but I do enjoy classical paintings... even when I don't integrate the finer details.

Keep up your display of cool old school art. It's nice. Peace.

yeah, all cover photos (forums and profiles) are currently disabled on cell phones so it doesn't bog down the users with crappy phones :p
