Recent group mail was very encouraging, and I think will bring good will to the group.
Particularly like the rotational gallery.

I think that all of the hosts are doing a wonderful job as well as updating. The idea of reducing the pages of work would be beneficial to all members of the group. Bravo! MIchele

Sounds like some good ideas to me as well. Just a pity that the whole process couldn’t be automated in some way i.e. once each member reaches the 3 image limit, the next upload automatically removes the first uploaded image.

Sounds good to me, and of course, the new group main page layout will make it even more interesting and easy for art to be rotated as well now. Well done

Thanks for the BMail and BIG THANKS for all you’re doing with the group. I wasn’t aware of the recent problems.

  • reduce the image limit to 3 images per member* – YES, good idea.

rotate the gallery ….. remove images – NO, if you are limiting it to 3 images per member, there is no need to delete images each month. members can rotate there own images by deleting previous images and adding their new ones. Dumping images older than one month may be counter-productive because members will be spending time each month having to upload new stuff and not everyone has the time to do that.

competition and masters gallery – YES, Good idea and nicely different.

co-host privileges – YES/NO – should be optional because if you are already Hosting/co-hosting other groups you might not have time to do any more.

reduce image limit – yes, too many just means the last pages hardly ever get viewed.

rotate gallery – theres some benefit to this (inactive members disappear from the gallery)

competition + masters gallery – good idea, though I’d go for ten rather than 20 images.

co-host privileges – not in favour of this as there’s no reason why the best photographers would necessarily be the best hosts.
