Default Please read - a note about chatter during photo posting

When we first started the Thematic Photography project, we had a separate thread for comments, and that thread wasn't open for commentary until our week for posting pictures had passed. This gives time for people to simply view the photos posted, appreciate them on their own and in contrast to each other, without getting sidetracked by commentary and questions about how photos were taken.

Then we decided to combine the two threads, trusting that people could hold their commentary until the week was up.

Lately, people have had an increasingly hard time remembering to hold their comments, and ignored posted requests by me in the middle of threads. Frankly, I'm feeling very grouchy about this at the moment, and will begin summarily deleting comments posted before the week for photos is up. Comments posted in the middle of the Pets thread will be deleted later today.

I've noticed that we started off posting about the photos and what we liked/disliked about them and comments about technique (or lack of it). Now we seem to be degenerating into merely which one is sweetest.


I'm as bad as anyone else.

I claim that the right to free speech and the first amendment and all that is curbed. Our rights are trampled on, we are hushed up and are not allowed to...

Hang on, I'm staff right? What am I doing?

We all better start listening to MoM, or else...

This ain't no guver'mint board, yer rights don't matter here boy!


Peter -- I miss that, the discussions we used to have about the set of photos as a whole along with reactions to individual ones. With the way things have devolved into chatter mid-week, that's completely fallen by the wayside. (And I do know I'm as guilty as everyone else for not posting an end-of-week reaction anymore.)

Thus my executive decree that we all go back to holding our chatter for seven days. If you have something you really want to say to the photographer before then, send a PM or leave a visitor message on his/her profile.

Steven was (is) so good at commenting. I'm missing his commentary. Guess he's very busy as he has not been evident on the board for quiet some time now.

There's been quite a few missing, who for some reason or another in RL that haven't found their way back to MoM for the moment. Hope they are all okay.

Hiya folks - Steven has been madly working on a project for his family for Christmas. I'm sure he'll tell you about it soon. He's also been busy looking after me lately, as I've managed to get the flu (yuck) - I don't recommend it. I'll let him know you miss him, folks, I'm sure he'll be back on soon.

Lanen
