Ipernity has proved to be a welcome safe haven in the face of what, at one stage, looked like the implosion of Flickr. However, it has remained impossibly dull. No-one, no refugee at least, wanted it to become what Flickr had but the migrants had at least the benefit of seeing what works and what does not - although opinions on which features fit those categories will vary.

For some reason, pictures on ipernity seem to get very little exposure even when added to the modest number of groups. I am grateful to my friend Rhisiart Hincks for doing as much as anyone to stimulate groups and their usage but I wonder if anyone else has any ideas.

I think there are small but important elements of usability that ipernity could improve such as batch organise and creating a memory in the map so it always goes back to where you last were. Any thoughts either of you?
