    I was just wondering why there's no photo section on the main website and I think most of the YouTube links are from nearly 10yrs ago?
    I know there's a lot of pictures on the forum and on Facebook but the main website seems kinda lacking? ( Is it difficult :Shrugs: I ask honestly because I don't know)
    I just know that when looking for a show I enjoy looking at their photos from years ago on their website.
    I'm just asking not trying to start anything just curious
    Thanks
    Ned

    Hi Ned,

    Do you mean the Rollag.com website when you say 'main website'?

    I am guilty of not posting anything there because I don't go there often and I thought posting there was limited to a few folks.

    Later,

    Yes, that's what I was referring to. Sorry I should have stated that in my post.

    I just typed in "photos" in the search criteria on the rollag. com site.
    "Nothing found" was the response.

    I think it would be nice to see a page showing all the covers of the past show books.
    A page showing all the past shows buttons. At least this would be a start. :picture:

    Please elaborate? Is it hard/impossible to have random pics of the show on Rollag.com

    Not necessarily if we were to embed a feed from somewhere - facebook or flickr, by we I mean Tim ;) We have a hard time getting random photos to use, not that I don't agree with you.

    I like what Dalton has been doing with their instagram account. We have an instagram that would work for this. My work has taken up my free time lately, but I could train someone to use it.

    I should add, the idea of showbooks or buttons would be neat, but photo archives like this have to be sized for the web and take up a lot of space which slows down the website. I have created a poster archive on the facebook page - but this works because it lives on facebook's server. I'll see one of these days if I can share a facebook album on the website.

    Tim Dachtera may have more to add. I like what you guys are thinking though. If we could get Jean to share some photos she takes every year too, that would be super.
