I'd like to see a random selection as the default.
Unsorted could include recently submitted images that have not been
checked and that some people might potentially find offensive so they
should be excluded from the random selection.
I think little folder icons (or something) beside the categories/keywords
might help too. The way they are boxed out seems a little bit too
seperate from the Images being shown seperately, could the deeply nested
tables be restructured? (Netscape 4.x took forever to render nested
tables but that is not really important anymore but I still favour
Could rootdir be changed to something else like 'start' or 'home'? Root
is a very unix specific term and the term directory rarely gets used
because folder is considered simpler.
