Talking How to improve the gallery.

Has anyone thought of a way to improve the gallery so that it can be more inviting to potential members?

I think that the gallery program needs to be replaced with the one from http://www.photopost.com ,then we can divide the gallery along similar lines to http://www.zeno.ru ,but it would be covering the whole world from the coins of King Croesus of Lydia (7th. Century B.C.) right through to the Euro coins.

I reckon that the gallery would have to be divided into geographical regions of the world,plus there is a need for sections for banknotes to be created.Where a country has more than one issuer of banknotes,that country's banknote section would need to be subdivided in alphabetical order of the issuers' names.

There needs to be a set of guidelines for uploading photos along the lines of http://zeno.ru/htm/rules-en.htm .

As for the information fields,you can find a suggestion for their compilation here; http://www.coinnetwork.com/group/wor...allerycampaign .

If this gallery is improved in the ways I have suggested,then we,the numismatic community,can give the cataloguers (especially the team at Krause Publications) a helping hand to help recompile the Krause & Pick catalogues,as some chapters are a total mess,& there is a lot of banknotes & coins that have never been listed in either Krause or Pick,but they should be.
