Good day (even if it's a night)!
Let me invite you to join a photo-community photo_guild_org
that is out of any specific subject but photography and that is intended to be not just a photo publishing site but a virtual club of LJ photographers as well.
Basic principles of the club are:
-- attentive members preview. Careful publishing, ability to communicate with respect to colleagues and some minimal skills level in photography are the criteria when considering invitation of an author.
-- club members take part in decisions which in most other places is responsibility of a single person (or of a closed small group).
-- easy publishing and comfortable communications.
At the same time this club should be treated neither as an elitist community of extra-class masters, nor best-of-the-best photo collection. Along with masters you will find also some number of beginners there as well as works awaiting for criticism. These people will value honest and specific responses.
Club has already started functioning but hasn't fully completed some initiating actions. 20 first most active members will get a status of the club seniors and permanent participation in the club's committee.
To obtain a club senior status you should be one of the first 20 authors who has posted 3 pictures (not in a single row) to the Photo-Guild community. After that you will have also confirm your consent to take part in govering the community by accepting further invitation to the Photo-Guild's Board of Seniors community photo_guild_snr
. Of course no obligation to participate in the board.
Along with the message you should receive an LJ community invitation. Please visit page http://www.livejournal.com/manage/invites.bml
to check it.
If you have any questions regarding the community or something technical goes wrong with joining the community please contact me right here or by e-mail photoguild.driver A T gmail.com.
Hope you will enjoy the idea. So see you in the club.
Regards, Vladimir Zotov.
PS If you don't feel like this idea please reject the invitation by selecting the appropriate option. That will allow for sending it to another author.
