I really enjoy looking at and reading about other Stovebolters trucks in the gallery but never see any new postings. Latest ones seem to be from around 2006. Are submissions no longer being accepted?? If the section is still accepting submissions, what’s the procedure? Thanks.

Some efforts were made last year to make some progress in adding Gallery submissions. Not sure where the process stands now.

I submitted my 49 before the holidays and I noticed the same thing. I did receive an email from John & Peggy Milliman telling me that they were working on some year-end stuff and would get back on the gallery first of the year.

I had been wondering the same thing some time ago. I had been communicating back in the end of 2016 to get my truck posted, but it didn't happen. I gave up on it and had forgotten about it. frown

John and Peggy have their lives full, taking care of things in life and the hard knocks.
If someone would like to take over the Gallery, I'm sure John, could use some help to edit posts and pictures.

Thank you for the update Don. No worries, while the gallery is nice, I very much enjoy and appreciate all the information in the forums!

Awhile ago the Gallery was moved back a few marks on the priority list. If and when it does get up and running, I'd be happy to assist as I've done in the past. Just waiting for the call from Stovebolt Headquarters.

Thanks for all the answers and comments. Hopefully the gallery will once again be made a priority so we can all enjoy pics and stories of the many new ‘Bolts that have been acquired in the recent years and put back on the road where they belong. I know I’m one of many who would love to submit the story of my truck and see it posted in the gallery. I’d also be willing to donate my time to help with the posting process if it would help to speed things along.

Last Fall, I began an effort to overhaul the design and layout of the entire site. We had a lot of pages in the Gallery and tech tips who's design went back to the beginning (so they looked ... bad). Also, the new site needed to be able to display on smaller screens (like smart phones and tablets) without looking ... bad. All of that required a completely new site, not just a refresh of the current one. I was hoping to roll it out on New Year's, but the holidays brought their own challenges (some not related to the calendar) and ... well ... program schedule and performance benchmarks have taken an unprogrammed excursion to the right, as we say in the defense acquisition biz ...

I did not want to add any new Tech Tips or Gallery pages until we had a new frame work to load them into. But once I have that, it should go pretty quickly to get the current Gallery pages reloaded and then turn to the ones stacking up in the inbox.

Sorry for the delay. Thanks for cracking the whip ... I feel like the Death Star commander being strangled by Darth Vader for being late with construction ...
