1. Gallery Clean-up Project

The Gallery Clean-up Project will focus on literally cleaning up the category tree in several ways. This first part of this project, is all behind the scenes.  Over the years there have been categories that have been "removed", merged, or changed and there are back-end changes that need to be done to fully remove them from the tree. This part will not affect you, and if everything goes properly, you won't even notice it :D

The second part of this will be ensuring that the categories are all accepting the correct file-types.  If there is a file-type that isn't being allowed in a particular category or a change you want to see happen, please contact the Community Volunteer for the gallery or suggest it to me via the Gallery Changes or Addition Requests forum.   I will be updating these as need be.

Next, I will be assessing change requests as well as requests for new additions.  Again, if you want to see changes to the tree, feel free to contact the appropriate Community Volunteer with your suggestion, or leave it on my Gallery Changes or Addition Requests forum.

Please note, that I will be posting information about upcoming changes for your feedback and discussion as your input is valuable :) Keep watching communityrelations for more information about things to come!  Also, the Gallery Description Project mentioned further in the email ties in directly with this clean-up project as well.

2. Feedback

I'm looking for your feedback in regards to the Community Relations Newsletter.  What sort of information would you like to receive in the bi-monthly newsletter? What questions do you want answers? What topics would you like to see discussed? What suggestions do you have to make the newsletter better? Please leave your thoughts and suggestions in the comments below, or email them to me at  Thank you!!
