One more change, if the site landlords and admins want to tinker, would be to have a special photo designation for stuff for sale vs all other photos.
Right now the "what's new" tab for photos... when I just checked... and it seems usually is 1/3 photos of someones gear for sale. At the moment the top 3 pages are 29/90 photos of used gear.

Here I was looking for interested climbing photos. I'm sure others might use a gear-only sub-page as a visual garage sale to shop if it were separated.

But I wonder, long term, if 1/3 of all photo content is images of FS stuff, if it wouldn't benefit the site to auto-delete all 'gear' photos after 6 months because that is going to be a huge resource over time. One more thing that can be addressed (at least somewhat) by having that particular photo-designation.

I think breaking out the "Photos" section to have something similar to the "Location" filter but might be higher in the hierarchy.

For example a Photo Type selection might sit above Location.

Photo Type might be "Forum" - "Personal Albums" - "Climbing Destinations"

Then the location would drill down on all of the climbing areas as it does today.

Right now there is no way to see all of the photos in Personal Albums and in Forums in masse without using the Photo nav bar link. While the For Sale photos take up a lot I wouldn't want to lose visibility into the Personal and other forum uploads as a lot of interesting items are loaded into those sections.
