Merging Photography and Image Abyss


Hey everyone!

As most of you know, Alpha Coders separates out content into different sub sites. Wallpaper Abyss, Art Abyss, Image Abyss, etc. Image Abyss is one of the newer ones, and we had a lot of neat goals with it. Make a less rules place, make the minimum amount of info for a submission just the image itself, etc - and Image Abyss has grown quite a lot over the last couple of years as it has met those goals.

With the onset of Image Abyss, there has been a bit of a role overlap between Wallpaper Abyss, Photography Abyss, and Image Abyss, and it makes for a slightly confusing environment, both for users and moderators. Photography Abyss is kind of stuck in the middle. I've been thinking about solutions to this for a while.

As a solution to this: Alpha Coders is merging Photography Abyss and Image Abyss. All of the content on Photography Abyss will be moved to Image Abyss, and photos.alphacoders.com will just direct to pics.alphacoders.com.

As far as changes go, this is a pretty big one. It will probably take us a bit to move all the content, but the process should be pretty smooth. As a user, you'll simply see the option to submit to Photography Abyss disappear.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments!

The merge of Photography Abyss and Image Abyss has started!

Submissions to Photography Abyss are disabled. We are currently automatically moving content from Photography Abyss to Image Abyss. Since there's a lot of content - this is going to take a while.

We are currently converting and moving content at a rate of 1/minute - so it'll take about a month to convert everything.

When it's moved will it show in order of date submitted?

Photography Abyss is being moved oldest first - so anything from it will remain in the same order.

All the photos are being added to Image Abyss, so they are 'new' on Image Abyss, and will appear as newer than things submitted to Image Abyss before the move.

The move of Photography Abyss content is now done.

Photography Abyss, as a separate entity, is no more. RIP.
