We've reached a new milestone with 5,000,000 visits in a month! Thanks to our dedicated community for making each day, week, and month an exciting step forward for 500px. We can't wait to hit the next million.
When uploading photos, you can now choose whether to upload to your 500px profile or to your portfolio. This is especially helpful if you would like to keep your portfolio and account photos separate.
By default, users will not receive comments from other photos they've commented on. This option can be changed by checking the last box under Settings > Notifications
Finally, it's time to welcome three new members to our team:
I don't think Tye Shavik, our new Developer, even noticed me taking his picture. His eyes never left the screen. That's how it's done, Tye!
Our new Designer, Tom Creighton, smiles as he works. We like people like that.
Ash Furrow is our new iOS Developer. For Ash, four screens is almost enough screens.
The 500px team has increased fivefold since February, when we had just two people working behind the site. Now, we are still just a team of 11 hardworking people sharing six desks and four beanbags. Good things come in small packages...and hey, these beanbags have great lumbar support.
