its about the "tagging", once a post isnt tagged, the search engine wouldnt find it, not for us members and for visitors, as far as i understand.
correct, we all have the pix in our computers, but in case there is name changes on plants and/or you want to update, i think the trouble starts again with "tagging".
personally, i totally love this thread and since my internet connection is quite ok, im always able to go through pages quickly.
for people with a slow connection, there is going to be a hassle in the future.
so, lets see, if we can come up with something suitable for all of us.
