I would expect that to have been a 'feature' added in from the get go... seems pretty basic to me. The product needs to be usable by people who are not computer experts, and 90% of the users are not going to be able to figure out that behaviour.
My suggestion would be to be able to turn off "making" folders for all registered users, and allowing a user to upload pics, and have a folder automatically created with his username upon the first picture upload.
That mode, would be very simple from a user standpoint.
Just a reminder, folks..... Brian has a big list of things that he's trying to get into RC3 but he hasn't formally announced yet what new features & changes are commited so things are liable to change. I know there's been a bunch of "that'll be in RC3" type threads but I'd hate to see people make plans around what may or may not be RC3 only to be upset later on if something does change.
Well, he did say that the username categories, and user's ability to delete their created categories were definately going to be in there, so that's what I was referring to.
I know.... there's a few things he's mentioned about RC3 that I'm looking forward to myself but until he gives a definitive list of things that'll be in RC3 it might be better for people not to make plans around it. It's always better to have people happy because something was included rather than being mad because something wasn't.
