Hello to everyone, :)

as previously announced, we've changed the submission system. We have no longer submission periods.

As of today you can submit max. 2 submissions every month - on the day of your choice.
Please submit your photos to the "member submission" folder.

Furthermore I want to apologize to all those whose submissions have expired during the last few months. We are short on active moderators (and still searching for new ones) and we took the necessary action to change the voting system from 3 to 2 votes.

Happy submitting!

You can read the submission rules in the following blog entry. The favorite gallery is open for suggestions by moderators, and not for their own works.

Can someone give me an explanation as to why my submission has been declined ? It clearly follows your own guidelines and rules.

Hi, can you tell me why my work was declined?


Thank you!

PS: If it is connected to this rule:

"The submission period is from the 10th to the 17th each month."

Then I highly recommend putting that information on the group's main page, because that is really essential.
Because it is not clear from the main page that such rules are existing.

When you write:
"For more detailed information read our full group rules."

This sounds totally optional, not obligatory.
But once you click on that link, the article says:

Which is clearly obligatory. I hope you see the logical conflict.

Since nobody bothers to give me some feedback on this issue, I consider this group dead.
Ciao.

No worries they might just have a bad taste. I think your photo is great. I like the contrast, composition, light and colors. I will also leave this group (again).

Really? I had been a member for many years. So it makes sense to rejoin?
