Discussion in 'New User Introductions' started by fredgoldstein, Nov 15, 2019.
can somone explain how this site work?
William Michael's Basics
1. If you want to start a thread (a conversation), then select the FORUM that you think is the most appropriate for the topic that you want to discuss and/or the question that you want to ask: there are some topics which could fit in more than one Forum; don’t fret, just stick it where you think it best fits.
Example – "I use Canon DSLRs and Speedlites and I want to discuss lighting for table-top close up work"
Is the best Forum: “Lighting”, “Macros” or “Canon EOS”?
If there is a more appropriate Forum for your thread, it can be moved (by a Moderator) to a more appropriate Forum.
2. Please do NOT post the same Opening Post or Commentary in more than one thread.
3. The “No Words” Forum is NOT for conversation – please read the sticky thread at the top of the No Words Forum which provides explicit guidelines for that particular Forum.
4. As a general guideline, we don’t usually flood a thread with a truckload of sample images – if there a many examples then use a link: doing so is usually more useful. If you have a truck load of examples and you do not want to use your own website, or etc, you can load the images to a specific “Gallery” in your Portfolio and link to it.
Example – “I’ve been using a Fuji X100s for a few years now and I find it most suitable for outdoor Architecture – anyone have comments or input? Please see some samples in this gallery [LINK].
(by the way and as a note to all readers: Point 5 is for the assistance of the OP and for his information of what is fact: it is not meant a new discussion topic in this thread)
it’s an internet site and you click on things.
many thanks Sandy,
my only interest is to post pictures and get comments;
of course, also participating at contests, exhibitions..
Could you simplify it a little ?
Many of us post images in the 'No Words' forum - although comments are NOT permitted, there is a system of 'Likes' whereby you can see how many people appreciate the image(s) (only one per thread, of course) you have posted.
For a more in-depth assessment of your images, there is the 'Seeking Critique' Forum, explicitly for comments on images.
Looking forward to seeing your work.
