Now you can find all the themed threads in one place. These threads are for those who like to show their images without expecting any direct feedback for critiques. Each thread is explained at the starting post. Here are a few more guidelines that should help make it more enjoyable for all.

  1. No back to back posting of images.
  2. Try to keep it 1 or 2 images in a post of any given theme.
  3. Do not post the same image on multiple themes, even if it fits more than one theme. Once is enough.
  4. If you start a new thread, please explain the theme clearly and show one or two examples.
  5. Try and post your best photos only.
  6. If you like what you see from others posts, hit the like or heart icon beneath their image! Encouraging words are ok too! Feedback is always nice to hear.

If you want good criticism on techniques and such in regards to your image, this is not the place to do it. Look on one of the other boards that fits your image, in the Dgrin forums.

    This is a thoughtfully considered set of guidelines. I think the forum will benefit greatly from their implementation.

    If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees.

    Hi Joyce, re point number 3: I totally agree about posting duplicates but sometimes I have trouble remembering if I've posted a certain picture previously and in order to avoid duplicates I scroll through pages of posts. Is there any relatively easy way we can tell which pictures we've posted? When I go to my profile and check the "Comments" section it only pulls up the title of the comment and not the picture itself. If I do a general forum search of all my posts, it brings up the latest picture I've posted in each thread with a link to the thread to see the others. Have I missed something???

    I totally understand what your saying and have thought of this many times in regards to my own posting. All I can say is do your best at remembering and we will look the other way if any slip by a time or two. I don't think any of us keeps track of who is posting what! I'm not going to police it. It is just a guideline to do your best at not posting the same image just to up your posting numbers. Does this help?

    I've been thinking about this, but a method would be to put a small remark (or an abbreviation) in the caption or comment field on SmugMug where the picture has been posted.

    A good idea Pieter, but it won't work for me as all of my captions come from Lightroom and I don't ever edit them in SM (nor do I want to).

    I started this morning using the comment field

    But looking further I'll probably change that to the keyword/label field
