  • Hi Guest!

    Feel free to check out Underwear Swimwear Guys as a guest but we'd really love you to join in all the fun. We're just a bunch of friendly and very passionate guys who share a love for underwear and swimwear.

    Just so you know, Underwear Swimwear Guys is and always will be a 100% free site. And don't worry, we don't share your email or details with anyone. The site has been going for over 17 years.

    So, when you're ready, we hope to see you take the plunge, sign up and gain full access to the site (again, 100% free). When you do, you'll be able to comment, post, react to and rate the other members photos. Plus, you'll get your own profile, you'll be able to post in the forums and if you're brave enough, upload some photos of you in your underwear - we definitely want to see them!

Considering a Gallery organization change...

As most of you know, I run YourJockstraps.com - essentially this site but more strictly about jockstraps.

Before I get into this, I've always had issue with the main Gallery page. It shows not only all the "Underwear / Swimwear Styles" Gallery photos but it also shows all the photos from members personal albums (as long as their privacy setting aren't set to private).

I've always considered the Gallery to be more about the photos strictly adhering to the theme of this website whereas Personal Albums are there to enhance a member's profile. I find it more on Your Jockstraps, but profiles are used to find out more about a member, see what they're into, read their profile "wall" which is more like a member's diary. And Personal Albums can tell us more about what a member is into. While I have never minded a few photos being posted of guys naked or veering off the theme of USG slightly, I have never liked that Personal Album photos show up in the main Gallery.

So....

What I did about six months ago on Your Jockstraps is broke the Gallery away from the Personal Albums. Each has it's own link from the main menu. Personal Albums are then displayed with a thumbnail montage of what's in the album and it makes more sense when you click on the album and see only what's in that member's album they posted.

It was an experiment but it has worked over on Your Jockstraps. It helps prevent photo flooding in the main Gallery, it separates the Personal Album Photos from the main Gallery and gives them more prominence and makes it all more logical.

So, when I get some time in the next few weeks, I'm going to try separating the Gallery and Personal Albums here as well. If there are too many complaints I can always reverse it but when I did it over at Your Jockstraps, no one complained.

I'll let you know when it happens (even though it will be pretty obvious).

Yes! Thank you!

Well. I will say my main attraction is the gallery. I do dislike the “flooding” aspect. But it is curious how my personal gallery just shows up in the feed, even though it is private. I assume this is because I am the owner? Only me and those invited get to see?

so if that is the goal, bravo.

You're right, you see your personal gallery in the feed only because you're the owner.
