Edited by linh (3) on 2004-09-04 03:00:41 fixed misspelling of flooding in title

Lately, a lot of people are posting series, or just more pictures at one time. I'm getting quite annoyed (sp) with this. Lately, I wasn't looking at dance.net for three days. And when I came back, the pictures I saw the last time were on page 3 and 4! That's why I would suchest:

-one picture per day max.
-wait to post a picture till your older picture is off the front page.

I hope everyone agree with this and that a picture stays longer on the front page than just one day.

Love, ballet_lover

I totally agree with you! I understand a lot of people have many photos they want to share, but PLEASE try and wait until your photo that is already posted goes to the next page...to give others a chance to let their pictures be seen.
It's much more fun looking at all DIFFERENT members, rather than the same few people over and over!

Thanks for posting.

Thank you! I have been SO tempted lately to post something like this but I am too afraid of sounding mean. Anyhow yes everybody gets excited when they have taken plenty of new pictures and wants to post them but please post I would say two at maximum in close proximity. Also more people will look at your pictures if they are the only one. Just yesterday I went onto page ten and there were photos that I hadnt ever seen before (and I am a VERY frequent visiter to this board so that says something! ;)) So please just keep it down, now this is NOT to say that if say I go and reply to all of one persons photos in a row and they all end up on the first page its there fault or they are flooding. This is just regarding posting. :)

I agree with you... but is it ok to post maybe TWO pictures at a time and then wait for them to leave the front page?

I usually post one.. but sometimes two at a time.. is that alright? I think that it is.. just as long as nobody goes beyond that. My opinion.. :)

I TOTALLY agree with you! Its so annoying too! Actually I wait longer than one day to post another picture, but thats just me. I probably won't post another for a few more weeks. To give other people opportunities, you know? Thanks for posting this! :)

I must admit I sound like a culprit of this...but I always try to wait at least until I have no pics on the front page. It's just that often when I do this, all of a sudden people reply to my old pictures as well and it looks like I'm flooding :(. Also, I have a feeling that this might be happening because soon everyone is going to have to go back to school, and they know they won't have time to post pictures because they'll be busy.

I would suggest posting a few pictures of a series in one post. So if you have ten pics to show. Post like three at a time in ONE post. and on the label title "more pics inside"
just my 2 cents.

Ofcourse it's alright if you just had a photoshoot and that you post two pics because you're very exiting. And I think that Sylphie is right; we have to go to school and people are posting pics less often. I don't know why, but if I see a pic labelled: more pics inside, I always go there in the first place! But some people don't know how to do that (I don't...) and for those I would suggest it. I had this thing in mind for quite a long time, but when I saw Rubberband posting it on the misc-board, I thought: why not post it here... Thanks for the good respons!

Just a little reminder stretching pics go in the stretching photos members board, portraits and other non ballet pics go in the photos members forum. ballet members pictures belong on this board.

Good point, Rubberband, photos of splits, bridges, backcatches, etc don't really belong on this board, and the portrait-type pics would be fine in the plain old "member photos" forum.

I agree - if you have a lot of pictures to post put it all inside one post. you can do that easily by signing up to an online image-hoster (like Photobucket), uploading your photos and copying the 'img' tag. :)

I agree, I love looking at everyones photos but it becomes to much sometimes! I do like peoples suggestions about putting more than one picture in a post, espically if you are doing a series!

i would have to agree with you on that one for sure! Its so frustrating and overwhelming when you sign on and there is like 3 poages of new pictures to see! And the worst part is if people post too many i don't get to look at them all because I just get overwhelmed and stop looking before i get through them all! I want to see ALL the pictures there are out there so please don't make it hard!

lotsa dance love!

pointedkwestyun: if your're floading the board, you're posting so many pictures or posts so there is no room for other peoples posts.

I don't agree! I don't think its that bad to be honest. I think if u took away the ppl that contributed the most pics there wouldn't be enough pics. Like when u look at forums for the other styles their pics stay the same for ages. Just my opinion....
