World in Pictures Day delayed until December 6, 2008
Web hosting errors forced postponement
The company we pay good money to host this loveable little mess decided to move our server without proper notification. Not only did they move it, they didn't move it correctly, which broke the ability to upload World in Pictures Day entries as well as POTD.
Since I was not aware of this until well after the submission time had begun and then it was going to take some time to get it all fixed, I felt it was only fair to postpone this edition of the WPD for one month.

Changes to the site
New news pages, reviews, blogs
I've finally completed some tasks I've been meaning to do since the site opened, the lack of which really made it hard for me to add and edit news items, site updates, site feedback, blogging, etc.
As a quick and dirty from the start, I was using blogger.com to edit and post updates and would then publish them to photographyvoice. The problem here was their interface was separate from the site and didn't really integrate well with PV. [MORE]

Never, ever, ever, use EasyCGI for web hosting!
Finally! We're back. What a trip this had been. My goodness. Need to test uploading and will restore it shortly and POTD will resume at midnight. If you care about the reasons, you can click the read more link. But thanks go to the gang at InfoQuest Technologies, our original web hosting service. You don't know what you got until it's gone and Norm, Luke, Brian, Brian and Scott are the best tech support guys ever! [MORE]

POTD Submission Open
Previous entries extended four days
The title says it all. POTD uploading is open again.
I also set the expiration of all entries to four days later, so they will still be active if they were before the "trouble".

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Count your blessings, name them one by one...
I wanted to take a moment, on this the third Thanksgiving here at photographyvoice.com, to formally wish everyone in the United States a very Happy Thanksgiving!
And to everyone else around the world it's never a bad time to reflect on everything you have to be thankful for. Digital photography is a wonderful hobby and artform and it brings together via the internet people who might never have met otherwise. I hope that photographyvoice.com has contributed in some small way to your enjoyment of the art and artists in our chosen area.
I am thankful for each and every one of you who takes a moment from your busy day to visit this site, share your photos, encourage others, and just be a part of the photographyvoice.com family of friends.
You have made the site what it is in this short period of time. Again, grateful!
