Well, as we continue to grow, so do the demands on myself and my EXCELLENT contributors staff.  Without their help, this group would have failed long ago.  And with our founder leaving us almost a year ago and handing the reins to me, and then me, nearly losing my daughter and changing locations, promotion at the agency to project leader, and beyond......if my staff wasn't so proficient this would have been a disaster.  

So, as we quickly approach our 10,000th member, I would like to thank a couple of my most active contributors, in no particular order....

:iconstephgabler:   :iconmetal-goddess:   :iconlouveska:  

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!        :icongrin--plz:

I do NOT want to leave out the rest of you, these three have just been the most active and have voted and submitted almost daily, please help me in thanking them!!!

With that said, we have only 13 contributors and only 5 or 6 active ones, and myself......and with the group gaining popularity, I would like to get a few more active participants in the group.  If you are interested, PLEASE note me :iconrourke-1: and let me know how you would like to help.  I will look over your request, confer with my core group and send you and invitation to join us.  We do not accept outside requests so this is the only way to join our staff.  

In your note, let me know about how often you are online and are willing to help, and what kind of photography you like to do/look at.  

Also, sometime soon our wonderful founder will be pulling herself out of the group and moving me up to full founder.  That will leave a single co-founder stop open.  If any of my contributors would like to have a LOT more control over the group (also means more time devoted....LOL)  I would love to hear from you.  I am not sure when Paula, :iconla-vita-a-bella: will be available to do this, soon as she comes down off her cloud from her recent marriage, I hope....LOL

so, keep up the great work team and let me know if anyone is interested!!!!

Thanks again!!!

Hello!! Please read BEFORE posting!!

First and foremost - WELCOME!!!

With being over 9950 members and more joining every day, I am sorry I can't welcome each member individually.

All except the featured group is automatically accepted, therefore, it is YOUR responsibility to follow these simple rules. We go through the entries every day and will remove or move those that don't abide by the rules or that are placed in the wrong groups. I.E. pictures of your feet in portraits, pictures of your dog in architecture. That being said here are some simple rules for this group...

1. We are a photographic group, therefore, your submission MUST be a photograph. Should go without saying but we have had some confusion in this. Also, it should be obvious that it is a photo, if there is so much "Photoshop" work that you can't tell if it is a photo it will be deleted.

2. ~No hate comments, only constructive criticism

3. Lately, we've been having a lot of submissions to Featured. Now you can only submit one deviation to featured every week. And all deviations to featured are subject to vote.

4. NO DA WATERMARK on your submissions!! Please, it destroys the aesthetics of the image. ~~ If you need a watermark, create one of your own, just like so many of our artists have done, and this helps preserve the copyright of the photo. None of the professional photographers use the DA watermark, they have their own and much better ways to preserve copyrights and avoid theft.

5. Nudity must be subtle and artistic. We have members of all ages and we must maintain an environment for everyone. In other words, NO nudity for nudity's sake.

6. Once your submission is in one of our galleries PLEASE do not move it to storage. It creates a void in the gallery that we have to go back into and delete one by one. I have had entire collections removed by an artist and spent hours going folder by folder looking for and deleting "deviations in storage".

7. DO NOT use our group to "SELL" your crafts. This is a photography group, taking pictures of an item you have for sale on etsy or any other site, is NOT to be posted in our group. It will be deleted and if it becomes a regular thing we will have to ban you from the group, sorry. I do not mean charging for your picture to be downloaded, that is ok.

Hello Admins from Photos-of-all-kinds. I accidently put my newest Photo "The Cold Morning Sun" into the Worng Folder. Could please move it into the "Nature and Landscapes" Folder? That would be very nice :)

Hello member....LOL, had to....

Sure, no problem, next time please tell me what folder it went into so I don't have to go searching for it, saves me a little time....  :-)

Could you remove the picture Made In Movember from the Nature and Landscapes VII folder please? The submit widget mucked up (or more likely I did...)!
