Cameraderie

Photography Forum
On our front page we feature some of the incredible images that our Cameraderie community members share. Reply to this thread to nominate an image from the forums to be inlcuded on the front page!

With our current software we can include any image from any post from any thread in the forums! 😎 Just share a link to the thread or post and one our volunteer moderators will take care of the rest. If there are multiple images, be sure to say which image. ;)

Bump - feel free to point out images to us moderators (PM if necessary!) that you consider worth featuring on the front page. It's important to spread the word, too - or else only what I see and like may get featured, and that's definitely not a desirable thing!

Matt,

I hope I can suggest one of yours as well.
If it didn't come up before.... all of the members of our outstanding team of volunteer moderators have access to add featured images on the front page and all Cameraderie community members can be nominated including the 'mods.

I'm really appreciative of people posting nominations and for the 'mods featuring images, if it was left up to just me then the front page would be likely filled with nothing but images from the Dogs thread! 🤣

There are lots of fine images throughout Cameraderie. I'd like to ask a couple of questions regarding their selection to this thread (a personal fave) and posting to the Front Page.

Is there a cut-off date for each month's nominees?
Are there any actual criteria for selection to the front page?
It's terrific to have the members nominate images... who votes? who makes the final decision(s)?
How long does an image/gallery stay up on the front page?
Thanks

At the moment, things are very, very simple.

Moderators can "feature" images and do if they think they should. They also can feature images on recommendation - and so far, no recommendation I've read was one that didn't seem legitimate.

There is no voting. In my eyes, this is not a process, this is an opportunity: An image impresses, gets a mention in this thread, and is featured (if nothing obvious prevents that - in which case there might be a discussion; again, so far, this hasn't happened).

Featured images stay "featured" as far as I'm concerned; there's a slow upstream that, over time, replaces what's immediately visible. If there were complaints or some different, not immediately obvious reason (like a kind of policy change or something - or a big challenge with amazing results, maybe?), this might be different at some point in the future. We could also actually do regular features - but to me, that seems counter-intuitive and involve more work; it'd take the ease and the excitement out of the whole thing, make it stale. Just my opinion, of course.

None of the above is *not* open to debate as far as I am concerned. You're looking at a practice, not a law.
