Thanks for the update. Flash isn't really SEO
friendly so I hope it isn't given priority as it was last time. I would like to see TAGS put into play along with proper img alt text for thumbnails.
Also, I would like to see the medium photo page move UP a little bit and move the clutter (2 bars) going across, to a sidebar. SOmething like youtube did with the videos, the title of the video is so close to the header and video underneath it while other junk like related videos (pictures in this case) are on sidebar to the right. However, I would like to see sidebar as a option for admins to have it on right or left side.
In addition to that, I think being able to show categories in COLUMNS would be a HUGE plus for many folks who have LONG list of categories and it doesn't do justice when you have to show them all on homepage.
