Welcome to all our current and future members. It's great that you're here and we just love to see pictures. That is what this site is about; all about shooting and information about shooting. And best of all, the posting of our results. 


We have several categories that should fit most needs. We are also talking about organizing and creating new boards. So, post away. We even have a critique board that is meant to help and encourage. We moderators want to keep this a family friendly board, so flaming will be dealt with. So, don't be worried about posting your pictures. We are all here to learn and to help as much as we can. Remember, it is the journey that makes this all fun.


As for posting your pictures, we just have a simple rules.


1) G rating. We could have kids here, and this site is meant to be family friendly. So all can enjoy. So, nudes of any kind is obviously not appropriate on our site. But, there can be other types as well, like violence. If in doubt, ask one of the mod's. We will be happy to help in this regard.


2) Size. Please limit your images to 850 pixels on the long size and no more than 300kb. I also like to take this opportunity to let you know that this is a free site. But, it does cost Darrell money to provide. Every year around October, a donation drive occurs. You are free to give whatever you feel is appropriate. More information about that will be in the post when the drive occurs. It helps with the cost of hosting all the images and topic we have.


That is about it. See, simple. Again, keep in in mind that we are more like a global family and we strive to keep it friendly. People will have different opinions about different things, and we respect that. We also wish to remind folks, that one can express those thoughts in a positive manner. And, at some point it is good to agree to disagree. Remember, that since this is all done in text, it can be hard to see the intent of the written word. Don't assume that something someone types is a dig of some sort. We have found that most of the time, it was innocent, just poorly written. Keep in mind, that we do have people from all over the world, and english is not everyone's primary language.


So, please have fun; post your pic's and lets get talking!

Sincerely, your mods.

Thanks, Dennis.
