The gallery is there to show off Blender's capabilities and there's plenty stuff to do so. It takes somebody to maintain the gallery, too. So these ressources can be used for something else - for example for the development. It's not the way that this site is an art promotion display for artists. So...

Well, it just seems to me that you didn't unwrap the mesh properly in the UV editor - that's all. Take a look into the beginner tutorials how to unwrap a mesh correctly.
Take also a look here:

Is there any reason for this, or is it just a small bug? Well, the buttons don't only work on objects but also on single faces. What if you have smooth and solid faces selected at the same time? Select both buttons? Or none? Only toggle the button for the active face? I mean: You've got your feedba...

Re: friends - developers is my system good enough?

I would like to know if my system is good enough for blender? Luxurious. ;) I have been getting a lot of crashes as of late, working with meshes, specifically when selecting them. Any error report? 'Crashes' is a little bit vague. Try to start Blender from your console to see what it says. Did you ...

Sounds like a graphics card driver issue once more - so the fix would be one of the usually proposed. Search the forum...

Blender has quite some nice selection options. The CTRL-E menu is your friend (you can use a number key for direct access in menus). Same with the "Select" menu in the window header. Some sort of shortcuts for the shortcuts: ALT-RIGHTMOUSE (or left mouse button - depending on your settings) - Select...

Well, the same way it was before. Using the FFMpeg option (has to be compiled in - I'm not sure if it's been done with the Windows version.).

I'm not sure what you mean by a caustics effect, I mean this . but what I mean is if I took a camera, and put it underwater, and then turned it towards the sky, I would see clear ripples, bubbles, etc. I'd say that this can be done with animated textures. I wanted to know if there was a way to do t...

Re: Underwater

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to produce an underwater effect. I tried make a fluid with a few ripples, but when I put the camera in the fluid, it didn't work.. I even made it transparent with a light refraction.. Any ideas? Do you mean faking a caustics effect? I fake it usually w...

Blender on my laptop seems locked. The first time I installed it I found the key buttons shaded in red before they turn grey. I reinstalled it again and again. The problem is still there. Most probably a graphics driver issue. Blender needs good OpenGL support. Updating your graphics driver might h...
