NEW FEATURE: Allow/Disallow comments on your photos

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have been getting a lot of really great feedback from the community on how to make the photo gallery even better.

One of the main things that came up, that a lot of you voiced your opinion on was "commenting on the photos". It seems a lot of people want to upload thier photos, but do not necessarily want any comments or feeback, they simply want to share with the community.

I have made an update to your forum profile, that will allow you to check "YES" or "NO" for allowing photo comments on your photos.

However people may still send you Private Messages or post in the forums with accolades or questions about your work. Because this is an "organic" community, it thrives on the flow of information and creativity of all the members.

I am not asking anyone to share any secret family recipes icon_smile.gif Just be aware that by uploading your photos, you may spark a lot of interest on perhaps how you managed a certain technique.

No one is required to answer any questions about their photos.

All I ask is that you at least consider sharing that information with the community. Who knows... you may learn something new as well icon_smile.gif

The only stipulation I have made on enabling/disabling the comments is this:
You must have photo gallery comments enabled in your settings, if you want to participate in the contests.

On another note, I will not tolerate any public chat about other members that have chosen not to have comments enabled. To each his/her own.

I'm glad! When I first read this, I was kinda like: huh?!?! But, seriously, if someone wants comments, then this allows them to receive them. I think it's a great idea.

Now, let's keep bumping it up to make sure it stays on the home page so as many people see it A.S.A.P.!

Sounds great! One question though: for pictures already loaded, do we have to do anything?

If you already have pictures uploaded, and they have comments,
after turning comments off on your account,
You will no longer be able to view the old comments, or post new ones.

That being said,
If you turn comments back on, the old comments will re-appear again, and you will be able to post new comments.

Thanks for the upgrade. I personally don't care if anyone comments or critiques but I do know there are those who do and that is fine. Everyone has their own comfort level-especially when first starting out and even after-some want to just share and that too is wonderful! We all learn so much from pictures!
What you do may be a "little thing" but "little things" add to alot!
