Geograph Announcements

Coming Soon: Displaying larger image on the Photo Page

When geograph was founded in 2005 we have standardised on 640 pixel images (on their largest side). This is what is displayed on the main photo pages, later did allow larger resolutions to been uploaded, but the main image still displays at 640px. We now think that this size is too small for modern, high resolution, screens.

Where we have a larger image available* we will shortly start showing a larger version (larger than 640px) directly on the main photo page; including support for 'retina' (high-resolution) displays.

We will have a prototype available shortly, which we aim to roll out by the AGM.

Call for more moderators

The trustees have decided to appoint a few more moderators, both to compensate for the quite large number of existing moderators who are currently inactive, and also to ease the strain upon those who do initial moderation of images. Thus we are especially looking for volunteers who would regularly do some initial moderation.

Only one person has volunteered for this role since 2016.

Please would anyone who now wishes to volunteer to become a new moderator make an application using the button at the bottom of their profile page (this involves doing some dummy test moderations). If you have previously volunteered and are still willing please could you repeat the process.

We will then get in touch with you. Thanks.
