    Agree absolutely. Little can be done about images which were posted before changes in the rules, but hopefully something can be done to stop them appearing on the Home Page. Is it surprising that we still get flowers etc posted when more often than not they are the first image type that prospective new members see?
  • au sujet photo supprimée
    re bonjour,

    je pense avoir compris que si ma photo a été supprimé c'est à cause de ma note trop succincte
    Il ne me semble pas avoir vu cela auparavant
    Pouvez vous me donner des explications auxquelles bien entendu je m'y plierai si tel est le réglement
    Je ne crois pas y avoir manqué depuis mon arrivée sur TE
    merci à vous
    Juliette








    Quote: I thought it might be helpful to members to provide an outline of what happens when an image is seen in the Gallery which one of the mods thinks breaks the Terms of Service (TOS).

    If the mod is pretty certain the TOS have been broken then the image will be immediately deactivated and an e-mail sent to the member. In many instances the mod will have concerns but not be certain and then will post a link to the image in the Moderators Area of the forum and ask for other opinions. Depending on the outcome of the discussion the image may or may not be removed. Again, if it is removed an e-mail is sent to the member.

    All members have the right to request a review of the image removal and to provide reasons they believe the image should be reinstated. All such review requests are discussed by the mods. It must be accepted that this can take some time, possibly even a number of days, as the mods are all volunteers and only have limited time to visit the site.

    Once a final decision has been made, the member will be notified of the decision and, generally no further discussion will be entered into on the subject.

    It should be noted that the only way to have an image removal considered is to send in a Review Request as detailed in the e-mail. Complaining in the General Forum, or elsewhere, cannot have any effect as we (the mods) only have access to the original image and notes if a Review Request is received.

    I hope this helps shed a little light on what some seem to consider the workings of 'The Dark Side'.
  • Rules
    Hello ,

    In the past , it was a tradition to post "wishes" pictures at the end of the year . Without strong rules about the notes .
    Have the rules really changed ? Or are the mderators more severe ?
    If you want that all the members leave the boat , this is the best way to succeed in it ...

    Nevertheless , Happy New Year to every body .
  • I complete
    Re ,
    I just want to complete my previous post .
    When we see a picture of illuminations in a big city , for instance , no need a long note to explain what it is . But this kind of pictures learns us about the world .
    Sorry for my approximative english .
    I don't really understand the reasons of this debate this year .

    Regards

    Unfortunately, this is the mood and the feeling of many members...
    Happy New Year to you too.

  • Keith, I've found one of my images doesn't appear as well as I would like it to. How can I replace it with a re-edited version?
