Re: Posting Your Image and Works Etiquette

hehe, you got a smile from me, lcramer53

I actually wasn't thinking of that restoration, although it was one of the longest and most difficult ones I've done. We had our pm and I was pleased that you got so many nice restorations to choose from. I think your picture got more activity in the Challenges Forum than most others. Glad it turned out nicely. It's a wonderful old photo.

... and, your reply in this thread is heart warming.

Thank you!

Re: Posting Your Image and Works Etiquette

Thank you Susie for your kind words and for putting a few things into perspective If i have helped or inspired just one person to enjoy this "hobby" then i am happy
Stick with both "it" and "us" cause it's a long coaster ride but we will all get "there" someday.

p.s. sometimes looks are decieving and things are easier than first thought

Re: Posting Your Image and Works Etiquette

Bill - Thank you. I haven't attempted my mom's picture again because I opted for practicing on pics that people post here and when I feel more confident, I'll go back and do my absolute best on that picture and hopefully be as good as you.

Palms - Well, you definitely have inspired me and I realize that in addition to my desire to learn, I have to learn a bit of patience too. Now, time to get serious, ...off to start Katrin Eisman's "Restoration and Retouching".

Re: Posting Your Image and Works Etiquette

Thanks for the wonderful reply to everyone Susie, I'm sure I'm not the only one who was smiling when they'd finished reading your post.

I don't expect everyone will be able to reply so eloquently, but as an example of what Craig (and probably the rest of us) would like to see, it was exemplary.

Craig – I don’t think you went overboard, I think you echoed the sentiments of many members and it was a good wake up call.

Smak – Great idea!

Gary – Thank you Gary, now if I could only restore photos as well as I write, I’ll be one happy camper.

Ziaphra – Thank you.

Re: Posting Your Image and Works Etiquette

Some sites similar to 'Ours' work on a points system. Members are awarded (say) one free point for every day of membership and (say) 10 points every time they respond to a question.

Then members can 'spend' these points on questions (say) 50 points per question.
Patrons would have unlimited points.

A system similar to that would mean that new members would either have to

1) Wait 50 days to post a question
2) Answer 5 questions before posting a question. or
3) Become a patron and post a question straight away

A method like this encourages members to get more involved and increases the chances of more response from newer members.

It could work well here. There is probably a plug-in module to the forum software to handle a method like this automatically.

Ken.
