      See – one added advantage of thumbnail galleries (besides not forcing users to click unnecessarily) is that it’s easy to spot that #13 and #19 are the same images.

      The advantage of being comment #2 is that L has already been there, done that. Thanks, L, you saved me a burdensome click there.

      @declanto: Why, thanks – we aim to help. (Though having stopped at #19 I can’t help further in determining whether it’s repeated a third time.)

      Clickophobes: Every day posters complain about not having thumbnails. Guess what??? They ain’t never comming!

      Queerts is most certainly on a revenue model where the rates they charge are based on a click per day guarantee/estimate. The more clicks the site generates per day, the greater revenue. It sucks, but in all fairness,this is a business after all. There is no charge to post or view here. Unless they went to a subscription model, which would never work you will never see thumbnails here………..

      yes, but if they had a contact sheet, they wouldn’t get as many views on their ads.

      @PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS: For one, Queerty *had* thumbnails on galleries as late as Spring 2009 – I stumbled across a couple ones – so it’s not they *wouldn’t* implement it, it’s that they went back and made the site *less* user-friendly.

      Yet, despite being intellectually challenged, I *do* understand they need the clicks. (And anyway, many sites offer thumbs galleries and yet still work on a click-based revenue model.)

      In the end, this is a “reader convenience vs publisher income” dilemma, and we know which side they picked – and I agree that since I don’t pay them, I have little standing complaining about it.

      (I just stopped looking at most of the galleries, is all. I only went through this one looking for the full-size image used for lead, because while airbrushed guys leave me cold, this goofy and fun image is *teh* cute.)

      But, as you mention, people complain daily about this, and the smart thing for a publisher may be to listen to what readers say, otherwise they could well become non-readers. And wither the clicks *then*?

      I am on the verge of becoming a non-reader….hot guys can be found everywhere on the net….and for news, one can read them on Gay365 or The Advocate from a more journalistic and serious perspective …so Queerty, get your sh*t together or soon you’ll be a non-entity on the net.

      A few very good shots but it would be a stretch to say that this photo set is “curated.”
      #12 is a waste. We don’t need photos like that here…..

      When are re-cent com-ments go-ing to be dis-played a-gain?

      Christ on a cracker, if you don’t like it, don’t look at it, and stop bitching.

      I, for one, am thankful for this collection of images. He’s pretty cute.

      who says gays lead meaningless lives? many gays seem to find meaning in life by waking up every morning and posting a comment about the lack of thumbnail images here. i’m just sorry they have to wait 24 hours until they get to do it again. I wonder what poor souls face their ire during those intervening hours?

      @alan brickman: Clicking is easy indeed. Easier than spelling, anyway.
