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.

  • Annual March Bracket Crash

    Does anyone else have this problem. I got two of the first three games played wrong. Blah.

    Can you be statistically eliminated after 60 minutes?

    Well, James, at least we have reasonable confidence that your bread skills exceed your prognostication skills! )

    More seriously, my Longhorns made it through the first round but...Duke will be an interesting matchup. Duke should clearly be favored but the Horns can beat anyone on the right night.

    The madness continues...and the symptoms can only be moderated by great pizza and sourdough!

    Good luck!

      Cal lost, but I got a little better over the rest of day 1. Brother lives near St. Mary's in NorCal, which many people think were the last team to not make the field of 64. Dad went to Penn St., who also just missed. Darn.

      At last check, I'm 30,058 on the NY Times. The winner gets a Kindle, but it isn't looking good. :-)

        One web site (USA today, MSNBC?) was offering 100 grand for a perfect bracket. Has that ever happened? My team didn't even make it - got invited to a junk tournament and was "one and done". Oh well - next year

          Hold the press. I'm doing a little better, and I've had six in a row right into the sweet 16. I'm down to 6,180. Who knows. :-)

            I'm holding pretty steady. 8,175. I have 13 of the sweet 16, and 1 automatic loser. Wisconsin was my big upset hope (my longshot into the round of 16), but they didn't quite make it.

            Does anybody else have a work or Internet pool? I joined the one at my brother's law firm and almost won a few years ago. It is, of course, all luck. :-)

              13 of the 16 - you may have missed your calling James - Vegas needs you!

                  The odds are infinitesimal - estimated at 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 to 1 for all 65 games.

                      Sarah,

                      To someone outside of the US this all must sound goofy. The US national college basketball tournament is going on this month. They call it "March Madness".

                      Pretty much NOTHING is more important right now. They have done studies that show worker productivity falls during the tournament (and many bosses & supervisers don't seem to care ).

                      I guess you could compare it to the World Cup.

                      Personally, I don't understand what all the fuss is about. Louisville is going to take it this year and everyone knows it

                      Go CARDS!

                          Sarah,

                          I have this much fun with World Cup as well. I like the big draw tournaments. Euro Cup was also a lot of fun, despite the fact the England didn't even qualify!

                          How's that Canadian national soccer team? :-)

                          Everything picks back up tomorrow and the top seeds are burying everybody. We have a bunch of #1 vs #4 and #2 vs #3 teams playing. The biggest "longshot" is Arizona, who has been to the tournament 25 years in a row.

                          I had Louisville losing the Wake Forrest -- who lost in the first round! That's my one wipeout at the round of 16.

                            Ken - the way your team played today - damn!!! Might not be stopped. AZ was a rag doll.
