Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.


To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • The Big Bang Experiment

    No, it's not something I did in my oven!
    It's an experiment by CERN that begins on September 10th (likely today, by the time you see this) along the Swiss-French border, to test the Big Bang theory about the beginning of our universe and possibly re-create the beginning on a much smaller scale.
    Frances, you're probably the closest - keep that oven safe from black holes !!

    Re: The Big Bang Experiment

    A truly wonderful scientific investment and experiment. Who knows, perhaps there will be a technology product that results from the accelerator that ends up in a wood oven someday.

    Either that, or we all get sucked into a black hole. I guess Frances would go first....

      Thank you James.

      Yes, we've been hearing a lot about this. So if you suddenly stop hearing from me, you'll know what's happened. By then it'll be far too late to do anything of course, but there should be time to fire up the oven one more time...

      It all sounds like typical human nature to me: Hey, lets see what happens if we make a black hole!

          I think it’s pretty exciting. It’s a bummer that it’s going to take them a full year to get it up to high heat (sort of like my oven )

            Oh, I must have missed that bit... I thought I'd be buying little black holes in the super market by next week.

              Frances, are you still there????

              I think the great collision happened today, and we are worried. Have you seen any black holes today while taking the kids to school?

                Re: The Big Bang Experiment

                No little black holes so far... I had to go to the dentist this morning so I am specially pleased by that fact.

                The scientists seem to be pleased with how it all worked out, too. But I'll be sure to keep you informed if I see anything unusual heading your way.

                  Are any of you following the playoffs for the next World Cup at all?

                  The headline of the largest Swiss newspaper today translates as: What a pity we're not going to be swallowed by a black hole after the results against Luxemburg...

                    Re: The Big Bang Experiment

                    Here in North America, the American focus is generally on football (the kind with the pointy ends) from now to January. Canadians ... generally, hockey ... from about now to June .

                    Me - maybe the Superbowl and some of the Stanley Cup playoffs - my interest in spectator sports only surfaces now and then. The rest of the time, I'd be fine with it if they fell into a black hole.

                    But then, I'm probably not the best example of what's typical over here .
