Wouldn't it be very nice if the "flow" of pictures is separated by if it's a "sex this" and other pictures? People putting a lot of time and work into showing their invertibrates, just to see their picture "drowning" in a flood of fussy "what sex is this"?
Of course, it's a great resource to sex your pet here, that's not my point, but I think it comes to a cost that could be better solved.

What would be nice is if new people would actually explore the site before they damn post within the the first few minutes in the WRONG forum. I know those are high expectations for a crowd of people that expect instant answers and don't give a crap about rules and such.

That would be really nice!
But as you, obviously know, not many of those nice people listen to you, hence my suggestion to make the site more appealing. Even for those who come from FB and haven't seen it all.

It was just an idea.

There are separate sections for every different type of photo....for both types of sexing for tarantulas, also ID’s, then separate genera galleries, enclosure set ups, then separates for other invertebrates, and random photos. Not sure what could possibly be separated any more and you can filter the “flow” with searches through each sub media with quick input into advanced search function, in search media, albums, and media comments. All this is easily found on tutorials and through exploring of the plethora of ways to pull something specific information from AB in seconds.

I mean the strip of pictures at the top of the screen when you viewing the site on a phone. Not on a laptop. Sorry that I was not more clear. Accessibility is about not have to click through a menu. But from the amount of medals and pokal your reply got, I guess AB think it was a bad idea.
Maybe I missed some settings?

It's pretty straight forward as it is... but here's a tutorial

Also I realize you are still talking about the top strip. I don't think 3 clicks of a menu is inaccessible to sort out the type of pictures you'd like to see

Thank you for your suggestion. There is no need to apologize and your idea is not stupid. Please understand that just because a suggestion is made (and this one has been made before) does not mean that it will ever be implemented. The "Latest Media" widget is exactly what it says, a "Latest Media" widget that shows the latest pictures that have been added to the Media gallery. The Media gallery contains many categories and all photos receive their time in the spotlight when they are posted. At this time, there are no plans to change that.

If you want to see pictures that are not sexing pics in the widget, the best solution is to add more pictures to the Media gallery that are not sexing pics. ;)

Thank you for the answer.

Watch the site from a mobile. Not a laptop, not a widget.

Of course it's important that people can post a picture to ask what sex it is. My point is that that it should be something you search for, not the first thing you see when you enter the site.

The same 30 most recent pictures are shown in the Latest Media widget (on the homepage) regardless of whether you are browsing from a Desktop, Laptop, Tablet or Phone. The only thing that changes is how many are viewable on the screen at one time.

Right now, what I see when I go to the home page is this:

Not one sexing pic in there (although there are a few if I scroll through the 30 available). This is working as intended and will change as soon as another picture is added to the Media gallery. The Latest Media widget is not there to showcase any specific pictures, but to showcase all invertebrate pictures. If you are interested in specific types of pictures, the best way to view them is to visit the specific gallery category that contains those types of pictures, not the latest media widget.

Thanks for the answer.
It doesn't show up like that in my browser.
But if everyone else is happy with the front page, something must be wrong from my side. I just don't know what it is. I will try different settings in my browser (if there is any) and if something change, I might post a picture how it looks for me.

I had a quick glance; 8 out of 10 pictures in the feont page " picture-strip" was: sex this spider.
Not sure if I can post the screenshot, but it wouldn't change anything anyway.
I'm not posting pictures because of this. But that's just how I feel about it.
And I'm from europe.

Is your issue purely that you do not want to see sexing ID requests? Because this is a valuable type of media that gets posted. and as @MrDeranged said just clog it up with your regular arachnid photos. Post them im sure we would love to see, you can also create a User album/thread to post your personal pictures into, a lot of members do this, and im sure people would enjoy seeing. Dont get turned away just cause you think your photos wont get seen.

No. Please read what I wrote.

Yes it is. Again, please read what I wrote.

You're missing my point. Sorry that I can't be more clear than that.
