Rob, is there any possibility of uploading a higher resolution image of the Stonecutter Island sketch map ?  Even on  full Zoom, the writing is blurred and impossible to read .

I also have the opinion that too many poor quality or  low resolution photo images are beginning to appear on the Gwulo site , possibly because posters are not restrained from uploading poor quality images. Also  advice on how to upload a minimim quality of resolution appears to be lacking or not clearly stated. The photograph of Madam Lau Tsung Tai above by "Amy" is an example . The copy of the original photo was taken with the camera out of focus.

I suggest that this site is "policed" and low quality images rejected.  If this would present too much work for  'Gwulo" he could invite volunteers to help with maintaining  minimum standards.
