MyGreat is a family of alternative internet-sites for photographers, travellers, dwellers and friends - worldwide. The idea behind all MyGreat-Pages traces back to a fundamental belief in open and free service, easy accessibility and a fast and simple structure.Today we started a complete new service for everyone interested in sharing information about his/her favourite towns. If you have something to tell about a place, something to depict and to portray to others, don't hesitate: write it down here, share your feelings, information and your recommendations and become a member of the fast growing international community of travel- and homeland-enthusiasts who care about their village, city or country. Visit one of our new country-pages. The following pages are up and running, more to come...

Furthermore, we hope you will find another new feature useful: Within your PROFILE & SETTINGS you can now choose *to receive a notification-email* whenever someone drops you a personal message or comments on any picture you shared. Of course, you will have to enter a valid email-address (which will neither be shown nor will it be misused by MyGreatWorld, of course).
We feel, that MyGreatWorld is evolving more and more!
Any feedback -- as always -- is welcome :o)

We have added a new THEME for those of us who prefer it simple, bright and pure. If you want to try it out just change your Theme in your PROFILE & SETTINGS to 'Plain' and hit the SAVE-button.
We also fixed some minor bugs in the upload-procedure. If you experience any flaws please drop us a note!

Relaunch of the free and popular photo community - On August 25, 2008, after almost a year of systematic and thorough testing, MyGreatWorld.com has hatched from a working BETA into the wild of the internet. And without exaggeration one can say that both, design and range of features have significantly improved.
At first glance users will note that the saluting map of the world is now designed in the vivid whites & greens which match the whole vibe of the site. Who does not like this colour-scheme can try out alternatives within the 'Personal Profile' where by and by different designs will be presented to the members, although it is almost certain, that the new 'Nighttheme' will rise to instant glory.
For all pictures uploaded after August 25, EXIF-data is now available (whenever included in an image), allowing the interested photo-enthusiasts a more technical insight. Comments and Personal Messages have been separated and clearly arranged for a faster access.
Under the hull of the interface, an efficiently tweaked database-engine was fired up and carries out the requests within the mainframe of a new and completely overhauled structure. By this, the overall speed of the site -- which has already been amazing due to the lack of popups, gadgets, etc -- was distinctly boosted.
MyGreatWorld.com now allows do-follow links to external sites on all pages as long as there is a gain in information on the respective topic (which might be a continent, region, city, point-of-interest, landscape or even a single picture). By this, the idea behind MyGreatWorld.com, to combine visual impressions with categories and a database of time and place has opened another quality-source for reliable information.
And YES: MyGreatWorld.com still is and always will be a FREE service.
