TheGameArtCriticHey Stratadrake, on certain pictures I can't reply to comments or post any comments myself. This problem has been around since this new version of FAC was put up and hasn't been fixed. Any idea when that may happen?

StratadrakeComments can be enabled/disabled on a per-picture basis (though the page should tell you when this is the case).  Do you have any specific page URLs I can check?

TheGameArtCriticI do, but first can I ask if there's a new limit to comments? Or if there's too many comments on a picture, does it mess with the ability to post more comments?

andr28aIf it is not too much trouble.  GET RID OF THIS VERSION OF FAC!!!!!!!!  It is hellishly annoying to work with.
Everything was fine the way you had it.  What ever happend to the expresion "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", cause this whole place has become a total mess.  Please, could you return FAC to the way you had it before this... disaster.
I'm aware that site have to 'update' to keep things running.... but this is, I'm very sorry to say, a total pisstake.
I hope to hear from you all soon

StratadrakeNo going back, sorry.  The new version is pretty much a complete rewrite of all the internals, which was badly needed.

We're aware that there's only one theme right now (the 2.0 Silver) and it's missing the blue (3.0 Zellers) theme - we may bring something like it back in a future update as a visual theme only.

We do have a forum topic available to discuss the matter, provided you can keep things civil:

luckylace222Strata, why do Popular works have only 3 pictures displayed? (sometimes, it has two)

StratadrakeCurrently it only picks from within the last two weeks (this keeps them rotating); if there just aren't many submissions to the site, there aren't many to choose from.

luckylace222Does the Popular Works only accept submissions that have reached a certain number of favs/views? -Because I have approved much more than 5 pictures over the past 2 weeks, and not even those show up as the lowest popular work.

StratadrakeI don't remember the specific algorithm, but it does:
- sort by a rough combination of # faves and votes (which needs refinement)
- exclude Featured pics (they'll become popular anyway, by virtue of being Featured)
- limit 1 most-popular per user (avoids flooding by one popular user)
- reflect individual content filter levels
- limit last two weeks

...the last is really just a hack to prevent it from taking too long to generate the list.
