I think I have ADHD as I couldn't stay on this new site for more then 5 minutes without being overwhelmed with everything going on....got frustrated and left, just to come back again and do it all over again. I'm not saying I like the change, cause I loved how everything flowed before but decided to give it a try anyway.

I had over 1,000 posts on the last site not sure that I can keep that up now, I'm on dial up and this site doesn't move as fast as it did before, for me, and again, my attention span is much too short, no patience.

Ok..so now that I'm done complaining about that, I have a new rant. What's with the model contest and people giving really low scores but don't give an explanation on why they think the image is a 1-5, or even have a few images in their portfolio to prove their 'worthiness' to give such a harsh rating???

And please don't tell me this has been addressed in previous posts cause if it has I obviously didn't see it and I'm not about to dig through all the posts to look for it.

And on a brighter note....how is everyone? I missed a bunch of you guys. Others...not so much :-) j/k

Hope you are doing well....

And it may be a year and half before I figure out how to post an image in a thread.

Okay, I think I understand where you're coming from...but I'm confused about one thing. What's "dial-up?"

Dial up? They still have that stuff around?!

I wish people would write on the voting as well, but, what are we going to do about it?

the only thing that erks me the wrong way about the "modeling" contest, is that photographers have been voting on the photography not the modeling in addition to the rules stating that "sexy, sultry," images are encouraged... I feel like this contest has been judged solely on the quality of photography, not the ability of the model to get a look or image across (which is what I thought the models only job was)
meh. I feel better now that I have vented a little about it....

OMG... you live... I am so happy that you followed the migration to the new site..

Dial-up?? Kelly.. you? on Dial up?? OMG.. we cant have that.. The Queen of Glamour cant remain on Dial-up.. we need to do something about that..

Wait I know... we will create a KellyG Tribute site... or a Tribute fund... Something to pay for you to have DSL or Cable... And we can post ALL of your image there...

Oh, on second thought.. that might not be a good idea.. WE can have EVERYONE looking at your pics.. only those worthy of your pressence.. you know.. JT, dK, Sojurnr, RG, etc.. etc.. etc.. MHickey, etc.. etc.. you know.. members of the KellyG World Wide Web fan club . Hmmm... let me think some more..(not that I can do that, afte all, I had a frontal lobotomy all those years ago...)

WEll, I am really glad you are here with us.. makes it more like home. And just so you know... I am OK, doing ok and havent been doing much.. but will be..

Hugs to you, and I hope all is well there and in your life...


Andrew
President, KellyG World Wide Web Fan Club

At least you came back. One wonders how many left and never came back. One wonders how many newbies take a look and give up in frustration. This is NOT a user friendly site. I've been around long enough to remember the reply of the software developers when asked about fixes and updates. . . "real soon now".

Ahhhh...its not a money issue on the dial up...wireless and dial up would cost me the same amount of money around here. I choose to stay with dial up because our wireless service that is offered here is down more then it is working. I'd rather have slooooooooowwwwww service then none at all :-) Nice to see you Andrew....hope all is well with you!

yes and no. it's true models have a limited abitlity to impact the technical qualities of an image. but models have total control over what images they post, who they shoot with, and those sorts of things. if you're a great model with images that suck, then you better find someone who can capture images of you that don't suck. if you're gonna model, it would also behoove you to learn to distinguish between good photography and less-than-good photography.

Hey Kelly, Good to see you here. I was wondering what happened to you. We need your voice of reason around here (mixed with that Kelly wit).

I'm slowly working through my issues with the new layout (it aparently gets better with time and practice)
