If you press refresh when looking at front page images
you will see that they change quite often
yes some, have been there for a while
But sometimes when images appear on the front page, for some reason they do seem to appear there for sometime
Not quite sure why this is...
But they do change i can assure you smiley

The problem with 'Front Page Images' here is that they're just the profile pix of the person(s) featured, not necessarily their best or most recent uploads... as discussed elsewhere today, this makes the PS Portal page very staid and uninteresting.

Unlike the 'other place' which is more dynamic as a result of there being three separate image sections (FPIs, Popular Images, Recent Images) which are updated constantly... even the FPI section there - the slowest - is updated hourly.

Aklady, For what it's worth, when you click on a front page image it appears as if it is the main picture on that person's profile but it's not really. You can prove this by looking at other images in that person's profile then clicking on 'back to profile' top left. It then reverts to the normal main picture on that person's profile.

I've just tried three seperate times and each time it reverted to the first image - so no, sorry - it's a Profile Image, not a proper 'Front Page Image' gallery whch showcases the best images from all uploads...

Just to clarify, any image on a profile may appear in the front page gallery here, not just that person's main image.

Just to clarify - three times and it defaulted back to the one before... :-)

*edit* on a fourth and fifth attempt it changed to a different image, but on two subsequent attempts the same image reloaded...

I think it's still not a true FPI as 'other sites' use the term...

I'm not commenting on what an FPI is, just how this site works. I suspect we are talking at cross purposes and anyway it's no big deal. Let's leave it.

FPI... HPG...same thing... it's still a little cumbersome compared to the way other sites manage their intro/home pages...
'Random refresh' means you're not necessarily showcasing the artists' best works, surely?
