Subject: [Leica] Beta Testers Needed, FOM2 Submission
From: "Tom Smart" <>

Alastair has asked me to work on a revised process for the FOM2 submission
process for this year.  I've put together some pages that need testing.

The process I'm proposing is all web-based and requires file submission
directly from your hard drive.  When the files get submitted I ask you to
provide information about the photo, and it goes into queue for approval.
After the approval process you receive an email notification whether it was
approved or disapproved, along with a reason if it was not accepted.  If
your image gets accepted it goes on for judging at the end of the year, but
in the meantime all accepted images are displayed in a series of galleries.
The original image gets forwarded on for judging, but I make 2 copies of it
for display in the galleries.

Before making a decision about whether the process is good I need testers.
I need to know:

1. Does the process work, or are you getting errors? (if errors I'll want
whatever details you can provide)
2. Is it intuitive enough?
3. Do you have any other ideas about making the process more streamlined or
more robust?

If you are interested in checking out the proposed system you can visit the
following pages (the URLs are subject to change, but here they are for the
beta test): to register (I need this
even if you are already registered with FOM2). to submit test images once
you have registered. to view galleries, etc..

I imagine an on list discussion of your impressions might be beneficial, but
specific error messages would be better off coming straight to me.
