    Good question from what I can see so far all of the pictures appear to be from the K3XR biography page. Nice feature you can search under a call sign and bring up those pictures.

    Whoa John, you have it all wrong!

    We created PicSafari to give folks something new to complain about. Otherwise, why else would we get comments about logbook confirmations, swap meet scammers, security, home page layouts, and callsign page editing all in the same post regarding a new picture collection that we've built. I should have been able to predict this response but alas, my imagination isn't vivid enough!

    There are basically two kinds of websites: those which are active and growing, innovating, and constantly evolving, and then there are COBWEBS. Guess which one we strive to be.....

    73,

    This is not the first time you have done something with the page and content ,whether it is negative or positive..........im not saying the new picsafari is bad. but sure there are a large number of images.....great and dandy. but i and maybe others out there share the same opinion that my time would be better spent learning new items and reading new content, as opposed to spending time looking at some pics.........it looks like you gathered all the images on the site and put them in a repository called picsafari...

    Fred, I understand where you are coming from. Ya can't please everyone, all of the time. QRZ is my home page...I actually prefer it to my other home page which is the COBWEBS you refer to. I simply asked for a way t0 have my images opted out should I decide to upload them. I think you're a smart person, Fred.

    I personally would like no see the return of the Search by Name feature. I have many friends I have lost track of. I remember their names, I do not remember their callsigns. The aircraft registration search was a nice feature also.
