RealJock Photo Gallery: Add Captions and Comments

By RealJock Staff

Here at, 2008 started off with a flurry of non-stop parties and unplanned trips to Paris, Bora Bora, and Tokyo. Kidding. Actually, we've been working on some more site improvements, which is why we're happy to announce the launch of several new photo features that we hope will improve the RealJock community experience: Photo Captions, Profile Gallery, and Photo Comments.

Add Captions to Your Photos
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a few words can help explain a lot about a picture. Good news: Now you can now add public captions to your photos. It's easy—just head to the Photo Manager and start typing in the caption box next to each photo. Once you save the caption, members will be able to see it when they view the largest photo size on the site, or by viewing your photos in the new Gallery.

Check out the Profile Gallery: Big Photos, Easy Viewing
Want to view all of the photos on a profile without clicking on dozens of photo thumbnails? Well now you can—just click on the Gallery link at the top of the member's profile to see all of that member's full-size photos on one page, including any photo captions and comments left by other members. Note: If the member has unlocked his private photos for you, you'll also see those at the bottom of the Gallery.

Comment on Other Members' Photos
In the Gallery you'll now notice View Comments and Add Comments links next to each photo. The first two comments show up next to the photo. If there are more than two comments on a particular photo, click the View Comments links to see all of the comments. If you want to add your own photo comment, just click the Add Comment link. Comments can include text, HTML, and images. Comments should not include any nudity or adult imagery, or violate our terms of service. Violators of this rule will be banned from the site.

Note that once you leave a comment you can't delete it. So please think about what you want to say before you say it. Thinking of leaving an unflattering comment about a photo? Don't bother. As with testimonials, all photo comments must be reviewed and approved by the member who owns that photo.

Approve and Manage Your Photo Comments
If someone leaves a comment on your photo, we'll send you a notification in our daily digest of new messages, buddy and hot lists, and so on. Once you log in to the site, you'll see a notice on the homepage telling you that you have new photo comments. Just click on that link and you'll be taken to the Photo Comments Manager, with new comments outlined with a red box. Like the comment? Approve it and it will go live next to that photo for all members to see. Don't like it? Just delete it and no one else will ever see it.

Where Are the Music and Video Tabs?
We've moved the Music and Video links right onto the main profile. You'll find them lower down the profile page, above testimonials. We plan to make some improvements to those features in the coming months.

Have fun. Hope you enjoy the new features. If you run across any problems, please report them to us using the Help link at the top right of every page.
