Does anyone else find it annoying when people post only pictures of the outside of ships??? When I am looking @ the photos of ships, I want to see everything on the inside, including staterooms/theaters/entertainmentvenues/pool deck/restaurants/promenades/bars etc...
My pet peeve is people posting pictures of their pets, their homes, their birthday's, weddings, etc. Stick to cruise photos and cruise photos only. Most of us don't care to see" Uncle Eddie" holding the new baby, etc. This is a cruise site isn't it??
Yes, we do get people using the photo galleries for "off topic" materials. I wouldn't have much of a problem with it, if they at least labelled them OFF TOPIC.. or NON CRUISE, then you can simply skip over them.
The galleries could be more vigorously (and easily) controlled if we insisted all posters register. However, it is a conscious decision to allow people to enjoy all aspects of the site, without having to register.
I'm guilty of posting a few off topic photo galleries (two land vacations come to mind, and Christmas house photos last year). But I never seem to have too hard of a time finding the cruise galleries. And, with the new search engine, it's easy as pie. Love that new addition!
