On the right side of the page is a box for Random Photos and Random Ideas. I enjoy this feature and click on it often. How about Random Multi-plant Photo box? There is room. Would be nice to review the Multi-plant photos.

If this happens then I would like to see the moderator section moved back to the top of the random plant etc boxes so we don't have to scroll down for it. For me it is the first thing I want to see when I log on.

That didn't work well in the past, Connie, and was changed to the present format because some moderators moderate so many sections of the database that they never got to see the random plant without scrolling a very long way down the page.

Plants Admin

You only moderate one section of the DB and your moderation box is right below the random plant and random idea. If the moderation boxes were on top, one of our admin moderators would have to scroll past our moderation box for the admins, then past the boxes for his 12 sections of the DB just to see the random plant. Zuzu would have to scroll past 6 after the admin box, I would have 5 after that admin box.

Maybe Dave can re-figure it in somewhere else but real estate is precious at the top.

Yes, I realize that. For a few minutes (or hours) I saw the moderators section over on the left side while Dave was reconstructing things. It is no big deal, really.

I like it.

Dave,

Would it be feasible to show the descriptive blurb for the displayed Random Idea above its photo? It's dropped below the fold for me now, and the wordage/title is mostly what grabs my attention for these.

Failing that, perhaps change the order so that the new addition of Random Multi-plant Images is displayed on the lower level?
