Group Description

Welcome to Photographers in Perth where photographers from Perth, Western Australia, can show off photos and discuss photography. PIP welcomes all new members, whether student, professional, hobbyist, enthusiast, or absolute beginner. We're all friends here! Members of the group regularly get together for organised (or impromptu) meets in and around Perth, where everyone is welcome and the only real aim is to have fun and enjoy photography.

Naturally, being such a large, active and diverse group, we do have a few ground rules in addition to the do's and don'ts of the Flickr Community Guidelines. To ensure a happy stay with this community, please also abide by the following:

Group Guidelines
Joining the group: As PIP has had a number of faux-Flickr accounts in the past using it to spam group posts with ads, and a few unpleasant experiences with people who "troll" the group to incite mischief, we have had to moderate all new memberships. We ask that all prospective members have a relevant icon/avatar, a short biography about themselves in their profile and at least a couple of photos they've taken themselves, or of themselves.

Having these things will make it easier for PIP Administrators and members to welcome you into the group. If you do not have these already set up, you risk of membership termination at any time, without notice.

Members without the above may be removed from the group by one of the Admins without notice. This is primarily for reasons of security and to prevent inappropriate lurkers or 'anonymous' discussion 'trolls'.

Group pool photos: The PIP Group Pool allow photos flagged "Safe" and "Moderate" (but not photos flagged "Restricted"). The onus is on members and visitors to ensure that, if they do not want to see photos marked "Moderate", that they set their SafeSearch setting to "On". By doing this, you will not see photos rated "Moderate" in the group pool.

If any member notices a photo that has been incorrectly flagged, please contact one of the moderators.

Netiquette: While passionate discussion is encouraged, please keep the language civil and family friendly (aka. no swear words which would make your Nana’s ears curl :-) ). Inciting flame wars, personal attacks, sexual & racial vilification will in no way be tolerated and such comments will be moderated or deleted without warning.

Apart from this, we hope you'll have a good time here and join in the discussion and also our social and photographic activities.

Note: The views expressed in this Flickr Group are those of individual members and do not reflect the views of this group's Administrators or Moderators. PIP Admins and Moderators will not tolerate posts which are vilifying or prejudicial in nature; these posts will be deleted without notice.

Group Rules

Hi there, and welcome to PIP (Photographers in Perth). PIP is a group for photographers in Perth, Western Australia, whether they are beginner, hobbyist, student, semi-pro, or professional that share interests and passions for all things photographic.

******* IMPORTANT : *******
Read this or your request to join is likely to be declined.

Please note that besides the Flickr Community Guidelines, PIP has guidelines regarding our members having a real online 'personality'. To achieve this we ask that all members have a relevant icon/avatar, a short biography about themselves in their profile (detailing who they are and where they're from etc) and at least a couple of photos they've taken themselves, or of themselves.

We have had problems with spammers, advertisers, information leeches, online trolls and the like creating fake accounts and exploiting the openness of PIP, and thus we reserve the right to remove accounts from our group who do not meet the above criteria.

Please ensure that you have fulfilled the criteria before you ask to join. If the criteria are fulfilled, you will become a member almost straight away. If not, your membership may be terminated without warning.

Finally, PIP is an open and inclusive forum, and as such, we have members from different walks of life and age groups. For this reason, we ask that all members keep the language used in group postings to a "family friendly" level (aka. no swear words which would make your Nana’s ears curl :-) ). Thanks very much.

Remember, thes above rules are in addition to the Flickr Community Guidelines which also defines rules about content, behaviour, and the selling of products, services, or yourself.

Thanks for your time, and we look forward to seeing the 'real' you on PIP.

The PIP Administrators.
