Default To report 'problems' or not?

I see lots of pictures that make me ask "why is that on TrekEarth" and wonder whether I should report them - this one for instance http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo753473.htm
What does that tell me about the world?

I would prefer the site to be 'pure' but I don't want to get into arguments about what belongs and what doesn't.

What are the guidelines for reporting images?

Trekearth is about " Learning about the world through photography"
That means you can report anything that is not .....
But in the case you show you have to wait and see and help the person without reporting.
Why, because she is new at the site and need advice to write a note about this portrait and enter with this portrait and something that feed the subject "about the world"
So as you are yourself quite new here and welcomed, at this time you can only report
red fishes ans flowers and heavy PP and Heavy frames (decorated) according to the exclusions in the TOS.
Sincerely

Jean Michel

Bob,

Unless people do report images that they think fall outside the TOS of the site the problems will never be addressed. Remember that all you are doing is bringing the image to the attention of the moderators who will make the final decision. Reporting an image doesn't automatically mean that it will be deleted.
All our opinions are subjective which is why I strongly believe that we should report concerns to the mods, not to the person who posted the image. The mods should have the clearest idea of what does and does not belong on the site.

Hahaha, the picture link you give has already been removed. So the reporting does work!

I report if a photograph doesn't fit the Terms of Service? Why not? There are already enough bad pictures that do fit the ToS :-).

Greetings, Dennis

Pure to its stated mission - "Learning about the world through photography"

Obviously that can be interpreted fairly widely but the TOS does narrow it somewhat. The provision of TrekLens and TrekNature also imply a narrowing of the field.

I've checked the last half dozen images I reported. They have all been removed so I guess my interpretation must be close to that of the mods.
