PhotoPost has been around for a long time, I wouldn't get to amped up over a promise of a photo gallery in 12-18 months from vB
that only has the option of "tagging". So many layers of features have been added over the years based on direct feedback of our users - to say flash uploader is not a big deal would be to discount all the people who were asking for it.
What's being discussed is a revamp of the UI. Much like the forum/gallery layout, its very difficult to get 10 people together to agree on a single format. Beyond that, everyone wants every feature or layout to be included in a redesign. And therein lies the biggest challenge for Photopost - having 10k+ users and trying to make everyone happy.
