    After many months, the wait is finally over. The board gallery is back! Many of you may remember that a while back the board's gallery was shut down in an attempt to relieve server stress due to increased board traffic. It was one of many changes trying to cope with the influx of new members due largely in part to the upcoming Transformers live action movie.

    A few months ago, Tony Bacala opened up a donation drive to fund a newer, more powerful server. We got one, thanks to many of you, and one of the first orders of business besides getting the kinks worked out was to get the board's gallery back up and running. Everything had to be re-done. In probably the majority of instances we were able to use a mass-move feature to move each folder over, but in many we were forced to re-upload various folders after downloading them from the backup. This is largely what took so long getting everything taken care of, and for that I apologize.

    Various Staff members helped out with getting the gallery back: Tony Bacala, Streck, Kickback, Joe Moore, Boardwise, Chaos Muffin, Soundwave.ca, and REDLINE. There was a lot of hard work involved in this big project so thank you to all of them!

    The new board gallery is different than the old one. New features include showing a small group of thumbnails at the bottom of the main page that highlights the newest additions, a small group of thumbnails on the right that include randomly drawn gallery entries, and biggest of all: the gallery is now searchable! At the bottom of every page in the gallery is a search form. Just type in keywords for an image you're looking for and then click the "search" button next to it and voila. This can save you a lot of time and trouble searching through all the folders and photos looking for one particular thing. I hope everyone enjoys the new features of TFW2005's new gallery, so let us know what you think.

    Checkout this screencap to see exactly where the new search form is located:

    To access the gallery, you can click the "GALLERY" link at any time, found at the top of the page next to the "BOARDS" and "ARTICLES" links, or you may click here: www.tfw2005.com/gallery

    EDIT: Don't fret, we'll be adding in new content soon enough!
