Question Can you guess what new things are coming to SCS?

In a thread in the Site Support forum, Lydia (UnderstandBlue) has posted that new things are in development for SCS. Here are snippets of her hints:

My guesses are...

1. A new Splitcoast app for iPad, iPhone, and Android.

2. A whole redesign of the file upload interface, making it quick & easy to add a card to the gallery.

3. A Drafts folder that will save new posts automatically as we type them, and we won't need to start all over again when we accidentally hit the wrong button.

LOL at #3.
New gallery software has been mentioned in the past - maybe the time for that is come, so I second your #2 guess.

I'm hoping for your #2......It would be WAY awesome if there was a way to have photos automatically re-sized. It's the biggest reason my gallery is so teeny, way to complicated to me getting it the right size. I know it's operator error, LOL! I'm just not good at it.

Huge...that would be the ability to arrange favorites. But then, the way I manage my faves now, I don't need that. But it would be huge.

Now, that save as a draft feature...especially if it was automatic like on blogger...oh my, I would LOVE that!

I would love to be able to upload a card from my phone like I can to Pinterest. So simply. I have quit posting to my gallery because using my phone is so much easier and I have so many ideas coming to me from Pinterest anyway.

I'm honestly not lying when I say it took me over 24 hours to upload my first card with my "new" to me photo program. Would be great if the site could do it although I probably still would as I watermark them at the same time now. I can understand how this would put people off uploading.

Would love to be able to arrange my favorites so I don't have to search through them to find what I am looking for.

I'd love to see a way to organize all the non-official tutorials, sketches, templates and videos linked on here. There is a wealth of info not as easy to search for or find as the ones under the resources header. Like all of the techniques used in weekly challenges for instance or templates people have created and posted for general use. No good way to search through those.

I agree with all of you wanting the ability to 'organize' favorites. This is a must for me!

This would thrill me no end. It has been one of my biggest complaints about favoriting those cards I love. Would love a way we could choose our own categories.

I absolutely agree with everyone.....would love to be able to organize my "favorites" into my own categories for future reference. Would be so much easier to find those cards that I love. Also have never uploaded a card because I have heard how difficult it is.

Does any one have Windows 8 and tried to upload thier favorites by opening the two windows? I found it NOT to be possible as Windows 8 does not provide a web address. Maybe one of the new things will be a fix for this?... My old laptop died and I tried using out newer one with Windows 8 and had to go to my desktop (XP to do my favorites.

I would love a color change or some other way to tell when a new comment has been made to a card in my gallery. I know I could get email notifications to let me know, but I usually go into my gallery and just look around and see if the numbers have changed. If I can remember that a picture had 2 comments last time, the only way to see if there are new comments in there is to click on the photo and read them. If there were someway for that number to change color or something if a new comment has been added since I last looked, that would be awesome.

I don't have a gallery, but I think this would be great, too. I often come across a card I like and comment or ask a question, but the poster doesn't know and I finally have to PM them if I have a question.

2 and 3 would be so huge for me. I have gotten faster over the years uploading my photos on SCS. It's the photo editing that takes me the most time now but that will get better too as I learn the updated version.

#3 would be huge as I hate hate it when I lose what I just typed when uploading, it is ALWAYS is just before I am ready to hit submit.

Is your trouble with Windows? Or is it with Internet Explorer? Windows doesn't have anything to do with the web stuff.

I got IE9 on my computer and was frustrated with the lack of toolbars. I think they were trying to imitate the clean look on a Mac but were unsuccessful.

But it is possible to get those toolbars back that you are used to. I fixed mine a while back and I may not be able to explain how to get them up. I could ask my techie guy if he can tell me again...or you can check with a techie guy in your area. Maybe a grandchild can help! (haha...that's the way it's going though!) But it can be done! They are just turned off by default.

that is your web browser thing... so, I am using google chrome and at the top there is a section on the top right that looks like three lines, and if you click that you get a huge drop down menu of things, one of them says "about google chrome" I use internet explorer at work and will poke around in there later if you don't get an answer before then. but, you need to know which browser you are using to be able to move around in there and fix your tool bar's back to where you are comfortable. clicking the about button will tell you which version you are running. Windows 8 is your operating program.

another thing to watch is lately some of the adobe flash updates have been trying to sneak in extra tool bars for other antivirus programs and such... so you have to unclick those boxes every time it updates to keep it from taking over your what you see too.

its fixable, most likely its in tools best guess is try clicking on those functions and see if you get a drop down menu for tools or internet options.

the biggest hugest wish I have for the gallery would be a way to organize my favorites followed by a way to organize my uploads without making private albums...

if you've ever uploaded at two peas ( where I used to play before I got lost in here & never really wandered out again) you know what I mean when I say if you do some crops or angle shots of a project you could upload all three photos together and they the top photos visible when someone is looking at your gallery but, if they click on it, they get to see the other photos too. its organized very cool that way.

okay on internet explorer 10 there are no tool bars... but, to open a second window there is a tab at the top there is an URL box, then there is the name of what url you are on reading this, then to the right of that there is an grey box... if you click that you get a new window (tab) open up and it should have an url spot to the left so you can open up the gallery and the forums at the same time.

I would love an iPhone app. I take pictures of my cards on my phone and honestly I haven't even figured out how to upload pics to my account on here. Most of my stuff is on Pinterest because it is easy to upload.
