Guidelines for Signature

Signatures are meant to show your camera gear and provide easy access for other members to your personal websites and or galleries.

Approved subjects for signature line use all or none as you chose:

Members real name and sign off greeting : Cheers Andy
Gear list or link to gear list
Members own photographs or film strips of reasonable and allowable size.
Members links to owned Websites or Gallery pages (flikr etc)
Members email address


That's it. very simple.
No Slogans or other text will be allowed.
If there is a slogan or subject you wish to interact with the group about please start a thread in the appropriate forum/sub-forum .

This is a photography forum. The intent of these rules is to limit subject matter to photography.
Please feel free to express yourself through your photos.
That is why we are all here right?

Respectfully
MFlenses Management

... I am gone, Andy.
It is a shame, really, that grown men, men of the world, educated men, cannot abide another man's simple statement of faith simply because they do not like it.
It is sad that I could post mini-nudes or near nudes in the new signature style with no complaints, but not a citation from the Bible. I see that I could not even post a link to my blog because it is not "owned," even if it has 1,000 photos on it.
Maybe I am being egocentric, but isn't it ridiculous that you guys are remaking the rules because of one evangelical American? What are you afraid of?
You guys have your fun in lockstep.
Paul

Paul

Very Happy

Paul the blog is fine. Don't mince my words. You can see I put "flikr etc"
The intention was to disallow Spam or links that were not Authored by the member. I may change that wording.
You have your opportunities to be an individual if you choose. These however are the rules for all.
Leave the ego...bring the photos.

The rules clearly say "owned" sites. I do not own any, like flickr and photobucket.
Perhaps come clarity is in order ...

I am not the one behind this signature decision, but I have no problem with it.
Signatures are propaganda, commercials. One-liners that can not be discussed, ivory towers within which one can stand with the shelf of it's self made truth, because signatures can not be discussed, can not be confronted.
The real identity of a person surfaces from confrontation and discussion with different opinions, not from one-line self portraits.
In the case of a photography forum, like this one, the identity of a person, his personality, must surface from his photographic work.

For other topics, there are other forums. It would have been nice to keep discussing religion and politics in the caf, but evidently the situation slipped out of hands and hence the decision of banning those topics from the forum. I am not behind that decision either, and I can not say that I really like it, it is a loss indeed, but I understand it has become pretty much of an obliged decision, in order to keep the whole site more photography-centred.

I oppose the censoring of non-offensive sigs and tags.

For unrelated reasons, starting in a few days I'll be absent from these forums for a few months. Maybe I'll return, maybe not. We'll see.

Politics and religion are subjects any traveller should avoid touching in small-talk or more serious discussion for a very good reason - the same reason why it is a good idea for an international photography forum to avoid fuelling discussions that inevitably will divide the forum more than any imposed new signature rule.

Since "laws" are often taken literally, I guess this means that either one will have to put all of the above into the signature, or not a single thing. If this is not the case, please consider making a small change into the wording.

I don't think this was thought thru at all.

Are you telling me that the member that has DOF is in your mind. In his signiture has to remove it.
There are more examples, I just listed one.

PLEASE CLARIFY THIS RULE.

So we cannot even have a quote from Ansel Adams?

Blimey!

Try:


size=9 (You need to put "[" before "s" and "]" after "9")

Your text here.


/size (You need to put "[" before "s" and "]" after "e")
