Roxy & Co. will update blogs based on information vital to the group. Newly added rules, changes, colourful thoughts. This will also give any member to comment directly their thoughts as well! Some Blogs will also give you insight, tips for photography, newly discovered books. Many topics to choose from.
Every Wed- 'Lets Digest!'
For those who love reading and can get lost in a book this is for you!
Staff & Members can share a topic on what books/authors are awesome, a must read, or truly
what just REALLY sucks. I'm a book nerd, and I'm hoping to see many of you get involved
with an old fashioned book.
Every Sun- Music & Musicians
Music lover? Think Kurt Cobain got killed by Courtney Love? Think your taste and knowledge of music is awesome? It could be a newly discovered musician, deceased, dicussion of your favourite genre of music, what concerts you've just went to. etc. This is where staff & Members can speak their mind from every avenue of this.

- Does NOT meet our standards.
- Isn't placed in the RIGHT folder.
- Offensive in Nature.
- Over the limit for Daily Submissions.
- There is Colour is your photo.
Sepia is accepted?
SEPIA is acceptable in this group. Colours in general will have your photo AUTOMATICALLY declined no matter the circumstances. Sepia, B&W, Monochrome are the only ones acceptable.
If you are unsure please let us know.
What can go into Featured Section?
The Featured section is mostly for photos that DO NOT fit any of the folders listed. Its up to the member to decide where they wish for their photo to go.
New folders will be created so keep an eye out.
How Can I become A Contributer or Co Founder?
- Contributers play a vital role within the group. They should be fairly active. Have a vast array of photos, and also to help Co-founders & members. It can be enforcing the rules, managing contests etc.
- Co Founders should be very involved along side Founder, and Contributers. They help with blogs, contest ideas, enforcing rules, and have more access and trust within this group.
Anyone who wishes to do this, please notify Roxy directly. Let me know what your strengths are, what you can bring to this group. We will decide if you are promising and truly on board.
Just message Roxy and let her know what you are capable of!
If you abuse or alter rules without consent of Roxy or Co, you will get a warning, AND/OR will be removed.
