Technical problem with points that don't add up

Hey y'all (-:

I've noticed a strange thing. If someone gives you a comment and puts a smiley on it, then that smiley's points are added to your total.

Re: How many of you steal time from work for TE??

GUILTY! you are the voice of my conscience as I type this message at work... (-:

However I also steal time from home to do work so I suppose it all evens out in the end.

Deleting photographs that are not good

My process: Post a photo, wait one week. If less than 100 viewings and/or less than 6 points, it gets deleted.

I agree on the need for a photojournalistic version of TE

I started a thread on this subject a couple of months ago. Rather than re-open the discussion, I suggest you peruse <a href="http://www.trekearth.com/read.php?f=1&t=131960&m=193776">this</a> thread....

Re: Question for EOS350D (Digital Rebel) owners

Thanks (-:

I'll get the camera at Christmas. What diameter is the thread on the lens? I think it's 58mm, is that right?

Thanks again.

Question for EOS350D (Digital Rebel) owners

So I've (almost) decided to get myself an EOS350 as a Christmas present... only one question remains: I need to know if the front of the lens rotates when focussing. I plan to use a polarizing...

Re: How did you choose your user name?

Very boring. Contraction of my first and last name. Chosen because it is reminiscent of "eros", the winged statue in Piccadilly Circus, London (-:

Re: All The Pretty Pictures

I am with you 100% Gringofil, I also am busy trying to find my photographer's identity. Like you, I am sick of cliches, I want to take photographs that 1) are original and 2) say something.

Time zone question
