general rules


FIRST AND FOREMOST: YOU MUST APPLY BEFORE YOU POST IN THE COMMUNITY - YOUR APPLICATION MUST BE YOUR FIRST POST AND YOU CANNOT COMMENT OR POST ANYWHERE ELSE BUT THAT APPLICATION UNTIL AFTER YOU'RE ACCEPTED. IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THIS RULE YOU WILL BE SCOLDED AND INSTANTLY DELETED FROM THIS COMMUNITY. IT'S FREAKING RUDE.

1) This is not a physical rating community. This is a photography community, not a join-and-post-pictures-of-yourself-for-"you're hot!"-comments community. Pictures of yourself are not completely banned, I mean hey there's Cindy Sherman out there. It's fine if you'd like to throw in a picture of yourself after a bunch of your other photography, as a signature or whatever, but otherwise it is looked down upon, and just annoying. Keep your angsty teenage posts of self-portraits with shitty webcams and digicams to Myspace, where they belong. www.myspace.com
2) Don't be an ass. Criticism is great, but be nice about it. There are two types of criticism; destructive and constructive. The latter is allowed, the former is grounds for loss of posting access. Petty insults are for people who lack the intelligence to come up with something deeper.
3) If you're posting more than one picture, put it behind and lj cut. If you don't know how to do this, read the faq here.
4) Any pictures with nudity must be tasteful and placed behind an lj cut. Please put some sort of "Not safe for work" or other warning in the entry before the cut.
5) Any pictures larger than 600x600 must be placed behind an lj cut.
7) Respect your fellow community members and listen to the mods. They have the power to ban you, and if you like it here, I'm sure you want to stay. Once again, if you can't take criticism this isn't the place for you. You can post your good work and your bad work, but don't cause drama if someone gives you their opinion - that's the point of this whole community, sharing and learning through posting work and getting critiques. This is said several times in the community info you're reading.
8) You must apply upon joining the community (read below). If you don't apply and just go posting about, you will be deleted. I find it extremely RUDE when you don't read the community info before posting. The application is quite simple and posted below for you to copy and paste into an entry.
9)Once you're a member you don't need to keep active to keep your membership, but please post for us - this community is for sharing and learning.
10) DO NOT WHORE YOUR COMMUNITY IN _PHOTOWH0RES_. If you wish to promote, there are communities for that, but you should email a moderator and ask them first. You must already be a member with an approved application.



when applying


1) Post your application within 24 hours of joining the community, please. It's not a definite, but I will warn you that the member list will be cleaned out periodically at no specific time, so try to join and post an application in the same day.
2) Answer all questions.
3) You may not comment anywhere else but your own application until you are accepted. This means no voting on themes or new applicants until you're stamped.
4) Votes will be based upon your photographs' style and composition, so you must respect accepted member's votes. Criticism is essential and unavoidable in the art world, so you should respect it and learn from it as it is intended.
5) Put "'YourUserName' Application" in the subject title of your application.
6) Bold the questions or some how distinguish the answers from the questions.
7) Do not argue with the voters or create drama. This is not middle school. If you can't take criticism then this isn't the place for you. If someone was harsh just for the sake of it, let a moderator know, and they'll take care of it. That isn't tattling either. If you're being abused, tattling doesn't exist.
8) You will be stamped after the mods feel that everyone who will has voted, or a few days. Whenever one of the mods feels like stamping you, they will. If it's been awhile, IM or comment to a mod, but try not to make a post about it.
9) If rejected, we encourage you to re-think your application and apply when you feel that you have made substantial improvements.
10) LJ-CUT your images.
11) Do not delete your application. Even if you're rejected. If you can't handle that, then don't bother applying.


application


Name:

Hobbies:
What other mediums (pencil, paints, etc.), if any, do you enjoy besides photography?

What type of camera do you use and how has it effected you photographs?
How long have you been taking photos? Have you had any classes or photography training whatsoever? Explain.

OUR MEMBERS:

when voting


1.) Put YES, NO, SWAY ME, or MAYBE in the SUBJECT LINE of the comment. In the body, you may write why or offer criticism. Do not post if you're not going to vote (maybe's and the like are ok of course).
2.) Be respectful and fair. Once again, don't be an ass.
3.) Base your answer on the applicant's photography, the basic info is just to let you get to know the applicant a little better. Example: Jimmy says he loves the Red Sox; don't change your vote to yes because you're a big fan or no because you're a yankee. Keep it objective.
4.) Only stamped members can vote. If you're not stamped, you're not a member yet, so your vote counts just as much as Florida's votes do in the presidential elections (for those of you who live under a rock, that means 'nothing').


themes


Every two weeks on Fridays a new theme is named. This is to give people ideas as well as for participation in our bi-weekly contest if they so wish. For themes there will also be a contest, so you can submit one picture to be voted upon. The winner gets their picture featured on the info page. Once a year there will be a contest in which a prize will be awarded. You will get a choice between a mystery object OR a LJ paid account for 2 months. The yearly contest will take place on march 15th! The theme is open.


TBA

Current Theme: Frustration
To Submit: TBA
