This is an discussion forum about digital photography, photos, printing, color management, techniques, gear, and art.Please keep personal discussions elsewhere. Lets talk photography everyone. If its not photography related we don’t really care to hear about it. We created a shout box for all the other chitchat. Keep it there and please don’t take this into the main forum.2)
Only real first and last names allowed.Not a major concern now but forum members should assist the admin by not responding to posts made by people who don’t know how to read rules upon registration. You can also remind members to PM the admin to have their names changed.3)
No insults or personal attacks against any members of the forum. If you are insulted, do not retaliate but instead report it to the Admin.
4) No blatant advertising, spam, or solicitation is allowed unless approved by the Admin. You cannot use this site to promote and sell personal services. Posts that are not approved by us will be deleted.This doesn’t mean that we will not post services here. Its just that you need to get approval before you do so and if we deem it a good service to the community then we will post it. Some members think putting something up for sale under their “signature” is not selling. In our eyes it is and we will delete the signature without having to inform the member. You may see though some advertising and promotions from our sponsors. We allow this since it is through their support that the magazine and this forum exist.5)
Message content must correspond with the content guidelines outlined in each forums description.For the sake of good order, start a new thread rather than shift the topic of an existing thread.6)
Do not post just to increase your number of posts. If you have nothing to say then don’t post. The number of posts on this board has no direct relation to the experience of a member.We discussed this before and I’ll bring it up again. If someone is asking for a photo critique, don’t respond “Nice shot” if you cannot say anything more about the photo. Praise should be backed up with reasons. Criticisms should be done constructively. Nothing is more irritating than having to sift through hundreds of posts that have no value. We’ve never moderated this aspect before but if it continues, we’ll start deleting irrelevant posts in threads without questions.7)
Pixelarch reserves the right to modify, move, delete, backup, and present it in other form, all posts in the Forums without prior notice to the members.Whenever we delete a post or thread we get swarmed with inquiries mainly from members who want to see a fight continue. We delete simply because we feel a post or thread is out of line. Question if you like, but we don’t need to justify our decision.8)
Enjoy and Have Fun
Welcome new members. Share techniques with others. Start meaningful conversations that stimulate the mind. And lets get back to why this forum was started: conversations about photography.
