Pete had this to say on the subject back in February this year:

This has been discussed before.

The problem with having a Junior Gallery is that you won't get many people going in there to offer help and advice.

There is no reason why young people can't co-exist with everyone else in the normal members gallery, so long as people remember that they need encouragement.

If we had a gallery for every different type of user on here it would become difficult to use the site..

I think this is a good idea. Also I think if they had their own gallery instead of just being amongst us lot with maybe a reduced amount of clicks to award them a reader choice award it may encourage them even further. It also might encourage us to go in and offer support etc. what do you think?

Thats great Doug Smile

Btw Fran, I intended to suggest 18 as I have a .... ummmm .... how to put this .... 'hormonal' teenage son (currently on a student exchange in USA - emails include snippets such as "my phone is filling up with American girls numbers) :s. The suggestion was to keep him out the ...ummm ... glamour categories.

The same can be said of the Critique gallery, but CB keeps 'gently' reminding folk. Could the same not happen with a Junior Gallery.

Would have thought that anyone with a 'junior member' in the household would be only too glad to comment on other uploads as we can see how encouraging it is! The only reason I don't do this now, is that I don't know if the poster is a junior or not! Smile

Well I stand by my statement that a junior gallery will be rarely visited by adult members offering help.
There may be one or two, but I doubt many more.

A good idea would be to have a Junior Gallery in conjunction with a Mentoring scheme.

Any thoughts on this?

Sticking neck out here...I can't really see the need for an Olympus Gallery, a Pentax Gallery, an Ilford Gallery if it comes to that...?

Surely , if a kid is good enough then they're big enough !!

Let's not try and restrict youngsters to their own section , let's encourage them to play a full role on the site !
