Let's try to figure out what would be best for us from Flickr integration. What did people think of the gallery (it was search thing that was backed by the ScottishClimbs Flickr group) that is disabled just now?

Love it? Hate it? Never use it? Didn't know it was there?


Correction: I think the old Flickr gallery pulled from the ScottishClimbs group and the ScottishClimbs Flickr account.

I think the priorities of a photos page have to be:

1. Show some photos - whether it be recently added or random (ideal)

2. Brain dead categorisation sport, trad, boulder, hills - the previous tags were just too random

3. Have comments

4. Make it easy for people to add them

Too many tags/categories. I frequently wouldn't know where to start searching for an image, or would look where I thought it should be and not find it.

Isn't extensive categorisation the kind of thing you want to see on someone's user page, i.e. chronological (a list of trips: last summer, last winter, summer 2008, etc.) or geographical (Font, Spain, Pabbay, etc.), whereas - secondly - you would also want images to be tagged/not tagged for appearance on the main page (if they were to appear there in future), and - thirdly - you would want some straightforward but comprehensive search terms for people searching the site for a particular image.
