I'm all for allowing comments as the photos are uploaded, as long as we All can comment, not just the judge. It will liven up the challenges, make them more fun, perhaps with a bit of banter, and hopefully encourage more entries. It most probably won't affect the judging, as we all see comments on photos we all disagree with anyway (well, I do).

Pleased you raised the issue, AnneSmile

I absolutely think it would be great if everyone wanted to chime in - critique, comments, and maybe even modifications?

Jestertheclown

Are we agreed then (those of us that are still here!) that comments shall be allowed on the uploaded images, from the moment that they appear and not only after judging has taken place.?

Everyone is entitled to comment on the image and everyone is equally entitled to comment on other people's comments. It needs to be a two-way street and having someone disagree with you is, in reality, quite a good way to learn new tricks.

All of these comments must be posted courteously, respectfully and in a manner that won't cause any genuine offence.

There's no reason why we can't take the p**s out of each other but there's always that line over which we mustn't step.
It would be a good idea if everyone taking part in this was to take a look at the recommended method of posting comments in the 'critique gallery.'
I now some of that sounds a bit pompous but it is sound advice.
Believe me, I'm a regular contributor to the CG and I've seen some really impressive bust-ups and dummy- throwing in there because some people think that they know it all and don't know how be pleasant.

My personal feeling is the same as Ann's.
I'm forever posting and receiving critique in the CG, so I know how it works and I can't see any reason why we shouldn't post critique in here, it's far more useful than a straightforward 'nice shot' type comment.
I'd be happy to have mods. enabled too, if that's what people would like.
I'd have to ask to have that applied by the team but I'm happy to do so.

Is that OK with everyone . . . ?

Bren.

Yes.

Jestertheclown

OK then!

Fire away!

Whoever hosts next week's challenge can change the written rules when they copy and paste them.

That was the easy bit.

The next question is: do we want mods. to be allowed?

If so, as I've said, I'll ask those in high places.

Mods can teach a lot and you can learn a lot from them. I guess it will have to be enabled from the Options box?

How about allowing mods after the challenge finishes, otherwise things (e.g. me) might be a bit confused?

Jestertheclown

I'd have to enquire Jack.
In the CG, mods. are allowed on your shots as soon as you check the 'critique' box, whether you want them or not, so I rather think that if those in high places will allow them in here, you'll have them turned on all of the time.
Which isn't necessarily a problem because you're not obliged to look at them just because they're there, although some of the critique might hinge upon them.

DITTO .. I think comments will promote participation. I, for one, appreciate feedback.

Hi all,
Hope you don't mind a newcomer, shall do my best to enter each week.
Just a man and a camera, Unfortunately I lack the ability and the know how to enhance photos, so I guess what I see is what you get.
B Lucky. Gary.
