1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So, thanks to Kristina (Arooroomom), we have a great new idea based off of Flic.kr's 52 Weeks for Dogs. I think we can be a LITTLE more relaxed, but let's really try to keep this as clean and professional as possible!

Here's the guidelines from the original site:
Quote :
Since most of us here probably already take plenty of photos of our dog(s) on a weekly basis, the goal of joining 52 Weeks for Dogs should be to create that one photo each week of your chosen dog that either stands out, signifies something special in your dog's week, or is a unique approach from your other photos of your best friend. Push the limits a little, do something different, be creative, challenge yourself.

Obviously, it should go without saying but i must: ONE photo per week of your chosen dog taken in the CURRENT week. one dog per person. the group's week is defined as Monday 12 a.m to Sunday midnight your time (and we know where you live!) if you miss a week, sorry, there is NO playing catchup.

NEW photos should be taken each week; don't rely on archives. Photos not dated in the current week will be deleted. Do NOT post a photo taken last Friday on Monday. Sorry, it just doesn't work ... it makes the group FAR too difficult to moderate and your photo might be deleted as being from last week.

Check your camera's date. This is a date-sensitive group.

Absolutely NO CATCH UP. If you miss a week, you can't post back-dated images. Sorry. Again, this 52 Weeks group doesn't work that way. However, this should NOT stop you from putting a photo in your own personal 52 Weeks set in your photo stream so that your set is complete at the end of the year.

IMPORTANT: NO SWAPPING !! Once you post your weekly photo, that's it. You CANNOT swap it out for another if you happen to take a better photo later in the week. Trust me, we've all been there ... it's just not fair to those of us who make great efforts to comment on most of the weekly photos. ... besides, the point of the group is to deliberately and consciously shoot that one photo per week for submission, not merely choose your best shot of the week.

Also, a lot of us here are purists ... if you can't stick with the project, you will be removed. This pool is for full 'projects' only.



And remember, we're after more than just quick snaps ... let's push those boundaries, examine new sides of our best friend, see things in them that perhaps we hadn't seen before, or perhaps try new shooting methods we hadn't ... whatever. The idea is to have fun and be creative ... every week.

Now... I won't be THAT strict about deleting posts. However, what I can do is lock members' threads who start out but stop.

Here are my addenda and rules and we can use this thread to discuss them. Ultimately, myself and the moderators will make the final decisions:

1. Please don't start unless you plan to continue. I'd like to keep this as neat and clean as possible. I will give you a 2 week grace period. If you cannot post or catch up your pictures by then, I will lock your thread and it will only be reopened with a written PM to me with the dated pictures attatched proving you've just been unable to post.

2. If you will be away and know there will be a delay in your posting, please notify the group (via a post in your thread) ahead of time with the length of time you will be gone. I will give you the 2 week grace period starting when you return. If you cannot post pictures by that time, I will lock your thread.


That's all I have so far... let's discuss! I will post final rules when we have them decided!

Click on the photo. When the little box pops up, click on 640px. On that photo, right click on the photo and go to "View Page Source." There will be a http://...jpg address in that box ending in .jpg. Copy that whole link and post it in our image tags Smile

No, Flickr does not Razz Photobucket is a bit more user friendly in that way. I just use the uploader on this site though. It's super easy for just uploading a couple of photos. Not as easy for uploading multiple photos though. They all have their drawbacks Smile

I'm glad we're going to try this as a whole forum! Yay pictures! Overall, my experience of Flickr is a lot better than with photobucket. Photobucket is much more "user friendly" but the ads (and they're video as on top of that!) drive me nuts and bog down the entire site.

And for sharing photos: when you upload a photo to Flickr, there will be a box that says "Share This" click that, then the link that says "Grab the HTML/BBCode," adjust the size (I like 640) and choose BBCode.

Voila!

So close...! by HuskyMum, on Flickr

Ah-ha! There you go Smile I don't use Flickr, so I didn't even see that link at the top Razz

And yeah- I don't like photobucket for that reason either. I don't really use any like I said Smile

Maybe I'm just daft but I don't get it. Does each person have their own thread or it is one thread for all participants? Are people supposed to comment on everyone's photos? I don't think this is something for me, I have absolutely no photo talent whatsoever. Neutral What's the point exactly? Is it your best/most interesting/most unique shot of the week? Forgive my ignorance. Embarassed

Edited to ask: Is this a contest of some sort?

Well, for me, it's not a contest. It's an external reason/motivation to get behind my camera and make an effort to improve my photography skills by documenting 52 weeks in the life of my dog. Wink Either tonight or tomorrow, I'll start my own thread and start posting photos - you're welcome to comment on them, either here or on Flickr, as I am always looking for constructive criticism so I can continue to improve.

Erm, i'm not sure of the logistics... But I think it's more for fun and personal growth than anything else. I'm going to do it and wanted to share with everyone so maybe everyone else could join in too!

Sounds like a photographer/aspiring photographer challenge, no? In that case I don't stand a chance. Razz I think I'm better off enjoying the fruits of others' labor.

Exactly Smile

No contest, just for fun if you want to do it, but we'd like to keep it organized is all Smile I think it's more for the photographically inclined who like to play with their cameras a little more and take some challenging/artistic shots.

Val- I don't think I'm going to participate either, but I'd love to see what the more artistic people can do.

I think the original intent on Flickr was to have everyone submit to the same place, but since we're a forum, I think it makes more sense to submit to individual threads for each dog. It's like a scrapbook, but a bit more structured, which is why it has its own sub-forum Smile

Ooh. If we're talking about getting all technical and critical I'm in. So for me it would be one thread for all of my dogs with one picture a week? Still a little lost over here...

The idea is that technically you choose one dog period. You want to see how they grow over the year, so multiple dogs doesn't work.

However, if you want to take and submit one picture for each dog every week, I'm not going to stop you. Since you spend almost every waking minute with your dogs (like I do Smile ), I imagine that won't be too hard. Just try to keep it organized... so submit the pictures in the same order every week, etc. I don't want to make you do 4 different threads Razz

Same here! I might start out doing it, but I know I wouldn't finish, so I would just rather enjoy Very Happy

I think you can post whenever really, just as long as the picture is within the week? I don't expect we're going to be super strict about what's going on.

Ooooh this looks fun! I only have a camera phone, so I can't date stamp it... but I might be able to start this next week when Roxy gets to check out her first fenced in backyard (with us anyway, who knows what she had before we adopted her...)

Jump right in I think this is about week 24.

With Akira being a pup you'll really appreciate the growth she/he has in its first year with a photo journal.
