site org suggestion

Wiki - Gallery - Forum and More. Discuss them here.
I appreciate all the effort that has gone into the organization of the Giant, but I have a couple of things that might enhance the site for everyone.

1. The announcements at the top of each thread have gotten really long in some cases. You have to scroll an entire screen to get to the posts. Would it be possible to build a section of the site that is a FAQ or Need to Know and post these things there after a week or two? Some exceptions would be posting rules in the sales area (which aren't really adhered to overall) which should remain in their respective threads.

2. A section dedicated to where to find portfolios, other storage, restorers, framing, etc... I realize Hit & Miss is supposed to fill this function, but I'm thinking with a section just for the recurring questions, we could build a better resource for members. Perhaps the threads here would be permanent.

Restoration
How to store prints
Where to get storage
How to ship prints
Framing supply
How to DIY Frame

Combine the ideas; Start in on the FAQ and include all of your suggestions in section 2 within it (summaries of relevant threads and links to the master threads will probably do). We'll make it a file in the Wiki, list you-- or whatever support team you put together-- as its author, and put pointers to it in the forum.

Good idea.
