  1. Photo search beta doesn't work in Firefox. It does work in Chrome.

    Tried beta version of photo search in Firefox and all I get is lines. No photos. It works fine in chrome though. This is not an idea but just to let you know what I discovered when trying to use search.

      • The misconception to classify a flood of unsuccessful recordings, too in the AC category for the sake of popularit

        Often we can guess when the newer 'fairies' arrived the professionals leave, and the old ones are starting to approve again. The quality of the photos which are featured in the AC category become very mixed immediately. In those cases the AC's do not orientate in relation to special merits, values. Is it necessary to be selected just one hundred of images for AC category from the photos made ​​within one week? Should be included there fifteen, or ninety nine images... but all of them be outstanding, quality, suitable for the inclusion among our favorite photos or in "Recent Favourite…

        • The best photo to be AC photo from its serie

          Approvers are alloved to consider only one photo as AC from one serie. When they vote for the first uploaded photo, they can not decide how many other photos of the same author will be uploaded by the same date and whether some of them will be more interesting or not. A "semiAC' category indication of former AC photos from a serie would resolve the problem.

          • Add a 'Photo' category

            'Local Photos' by town, county or region.

            Possibly even 'Local Photographers -- Professional and Amateur', and possibly even to web sites to purchase commercial rights or when photos are free for non-commercial use.

            • Upload station photo not working

              In the Edit My Weather Stations, for a specific station, there is a link to upload a station photo. There is a button labeled "Choose Photo to Upload". This button does not work. I've tried it on Safari, Firefox, and Internet Explorer.

                  • Allow outside photos with family members, pets, wild animals in the scene.

                    You would have many more fabulous photographs if your rules were not so strict. There are some excellent photos out there being denied because if a human being is a part of the photo it is said to be a "primary portrait." This is not the case. Many times people make the weather scene very interesting to others. I would suggest you re-think dismissing photos as portraits when a person is in a cloud burst, blizzard, snow storm, or forest fire.

                    • Allow larger file sizes please!

                      4MB's in this day and age is just not enough, sometimes I can't upload a picture from my iphone never mind my SLR, I have to crop almost all my photo's to meet the 4MB's limit.

                      • No repeats

                        Photos should only be allowed to be posted once, I've seen the same picture posted over and over until the one week limit is up, seemingly to gather more votes.

                          • Rotate the AC panel every 30 day's or so.

                            1) It should be public knowledge who the AC's members are 2) Post how to become an AC's I can't seem to find that information anywhere. 3) There should be a short review of why a photo was picked, this may help with some of the lesser quality photo's being picked while some very good ones go unnoticed.

                            • portraits

                              I do not like the inconsistency in what is deemed a portrait and what is not. Some people's photos get accepted into the gallery and comments are allowed. Others, like me, can upload something with a person in it and the comments are disallowed. This is just one of the favoritism factors at WU that I have noticed in the past 2 yrs. It is disheartening and a huge turn off when the favoritism is so blatant. It is the same feeling when some folks great photos are ignored and other so-so photographers have AC's multiple times a week. There…

                                • Upload Photos From the Mobile App

                                  First-I understand the mission of Wunderground.com isn't photos, it's weather. I understand that. I emailed myself a photo this morning from my iPhone and I have no idea where it ended up!

                                  However, I do strongly suggest the ability to upload FROM within app itself! I don't think it would really that difficult to build (of course, I'm no no developer either). Let's get out the vote!

                                    Suddenly, we no longer see how many favorites a picture has gotten. I find this a HUGE omission. It is one of the major things I notice about an image, and one I care about a great deal.

                                    • Do not require us to put location

                                      Yet another thing you guys have changed within the last few years that drives me nuts. You used to be able to upload photos without having to put the location where they were taken. If it's a personal Weather Station I can understand location information is important but for a photo? Absolutely not. I can't understand why location is required for something it's really not necessary. Unless you guys are using that info for wrong reasons. Besides knowing where a PWS is you don't need to know the location or where someone lives.

                                      • Make the photo selections match the weather information being looked up, or at least the area.

                                        It's rather cruel to look up weather for a town, and be asked to look at photos for that town, only to see photos of, say, snow when you live in a place that never snows. Or a beautiful beach shot when it's 30 below outside.

                                        Make the photos match what's being looked up. Sheesh.

                                        • Pictures taken while driving

                                          I find it funny that Wunderground will offer "Winter Driving Tips" on the website, yet will continue to post pictures that people have obviously taken while driving, and on some rather snowy/icy roads. It's probably not the best idea, and dangerous.. Why continue to encourage people to do this practice by posting their pictures?
