    Go to a random profile
    Click Media
    Click on an image
    (new page loads)
    There is *no* way that I've found to do any of the following:
    - go to next picture
    - return to profile (without using back button)
    - return to user's media (at all)

    Definitely something that could be improved.

    Well you can go to any media item and use the next -prev arrow navigations.

    Navigating in "media" is still a mess, especially when you're trying to do something to your albums.
    If you delete an album, you're redirected to forums.nexopia.com/media, which really isn't helpful as this is "all media" not "my media". Click back a few times to get back to your own albums, and of course the page is stale and you need to refresh. Pretty much the shittiest navigation possible...

    Once you get to media/albums/pictures (the verbiage changes, depending where you are), there's no way to get back to the users page, unless you hover over an image and click the user-name-link that appears. All other links go to the user's media. The top of the content reads: Media for user: [user name]. Could you just make [user name] into a link that goes to their PROFILE (instead of to their MEDIA, like all the other links)?

    That'd be greeeaaaaatttt. (I need your TPS report too)

    The verbiage seems to be more consistent... but there's still a really annoying disconnect between Media and Photos and Albums... once you leave someone's profile to view albums, it's not clean to return to the profile, mostly because you jump between two sections of the site. profiles v media.

    so... the nav is still very awkward... plus, if you hover on a picture so the users name appears, so it can be clicked, when you click, you get that stupid popup which means you have to click AGAIN to return to the profile...
