55 minutes of scrolling down

  • Question
  • Updated 7 years ago
I wanted to see how many fine art pictures were uploaded last month (May). There are 7266 which is great but there still are photoshopped ones in there. The best is it took me 55 minutes to scroll down the whole lot. I'm happy I didn't try the landscape category! So, my question is: why can't we have it the way it was at the beginning. I mean on the bottom of the page it said 1-48 of 7266 images and not 1-8 images of many images. This scrolling down is a little nightmare and takes too much time. Can we please have it back the old way?

Have you tried a different browser to see if it may be browser related?
I just tried going to fine art and chose leading and last month from the drop down menu and it loaded 96 pics right away for me. I went to recent and leading and it showed 48 at a time. I hope it gets better for you. I know what a pain it can be to wait and scroll. :)
Oh and I think if they add a sort Ascending and descending feature that would help.

Andrew, 48 or 96 pics at one time is not really a problem. The problem is to have to scroll down to know the total amount of pics. It took me almost one hour to scroll down over 7000 pics yesterday. But Jason said, they will try to put it back the old way. You will see, it's great and you can spend your time playing more duels

Thanks, you haven't given me any bad advice yet. I look forward to trying it out.

I understand what you mean but it's not a browser problem, it's just that it doesn't show the total amount of pictures from the beginning. Before (last year) it was so that we immediately knew the total amount of pictures and didn't need to scroll down for hours

Ahhhh. I see. I am fairly new but the way it used to be does sound better. :)
I also noticed that when I go to an individual photo after scrolling through a few hundred photos and then hit the back button I have to start scrolling from the beginning again. Maybe I am doing something wrong?

Load the individual image in "new tab" instead of just left clicking, you wont move your open page that way

ok Michelle, I tried but I still don't see the amount of posted pics for the month and still cannot figure out if I'm in the first 20%.
Jason: yes pleeease

Total number of images per category per contest period would greatly reduce load on servers. Perhaps it was excluded when daily contests were introduced, and now it requires programming and testing to include it, back. It's good to know, we will have that option soon.

BTW, I once tried to scroll down the monthly Landscapes for previous month. Woooow, I gave up after getting to images with 400 plus ImageScore being ranked nearby 10.000th position - in Landscapes for month only! :)

If it is too difficult to do as part of the browse scrolling process, then an alternative may be a simple stats screen, accessible elsewhere in the site, that shows the total number of images for each category for the current day/week/month/(year?). From a coding perspective, this would mean that the query to count and return the numbers would only need to be done when that page is accessed/refreshed, rather than every time somebody scrolls.

Time left in each of the periods would also be useful for those of us not in the UK and therefore not always 100% aware of when Saturday midnight is in 'local' time.

This would at least give us the info we need to be able to work out for ourselves if we are in with a chance of an award or not.
