I will not be near a computer till Jan 10 (I'll be gone travelling!). I can take a picture for each day (Jan 1- 10) though. Can I start my thread late and then just post my pictures for the days I missed, will that work?

So in a broader sense, if you miss a day like Feb. 8 (you have a picture for it, you just didn't post it), on Feb, 9th you can post two pictures - one for Feb. 8th and one for Feb. 9th? Or no?

Philippe, je ne peux pas m'empecher de remarquer: "dairy" veut dire "laiterie", je crois que tu voulais dire "diary", un journal?

@blowout : Yes, absolutely !
Just keep in mind to post each picture in a different message.

Thanks for the invite Phillipe, I began a photo a day blog last year and got to march before fizzing out. I was very disappointed in myself for not completing it so I'm determined to make 2k7 the year that I finish. Can't wait to start, there are a lot of things I have planned for taking shots of this year and will love this reason/opportunity to make sure I meet my goals.

Thanks again.

Thanks for the invite! This sounds like a wonderful project. I'm totally determined to dedicate myself to it... I hope I'll be up to it!!
I have a couple of questions though...

1. Are we allowed to post pictures in our thread that have been modified in phtoshop? Like artistic renditions, colours, effects, etc?

2. Can we make it a rule to only speak/post in english please?

I will look forward to starting!

@Géraud : le self tu peux le mettre dans le message d'ouverture de topic. Ensuite, ce que tu veux... selfs ou non.

@sunshine city :
1. Of course. Don't forget, you do it first for yourself. So if modified pictures represent your days, well... do it.
2. I can't make that a rule, having people who don't right nor read english. I'm sure the ones who do will do it in english, though. But let's give the chance to the others to participate too.

Glad you all enjoy the idea. We'll see how it works out !

leroyer Posted 12 years ago. Edited by leroyer (member) 12 years ago
If you forget one day, well, what can I say ? As told, this you do for yourself in the first place... so you punish yourself already.
But if some of you want a spanking... well... girls have just to ask. Boys can dream.

@|| ۫ ٭ κιτ-κατн ٭ ۫۫ || : Hum, I don't speak spanish, but if your question is about the language used on your topic : english is the best you can do, but if you don't write in english, no problem... do it in your own language (hope I answered your question).

3 things :
- On this 365 days flight, as I'm proud to be your guru/captain, it's a great pleasure to have a crew of nice and competent people to help me in the task of administrating this group : ladybadtiming, photogrin (aka photogreen), and S. Kesk. A couple more will join.

- If you feel like you're talking alone on your topic and nobody reads it because nobody answers, be reassured. It is read. At least by the admins. I read all the topic yet posted, and am glad you're all aboard.

- We're gonna put some fun in our 365 days journey. Stay tuned. You'll like it, I'm sure.

Thanks all to make it that big !

Philippe -- are we allowed to replace photos? I use a lot of film, but I will have to use my digital camera for this project too. If I develop a roll of film later and find a picture I really like for a certain day, would I be able to replace the digital photo for that day for the film photo taken on the same day? Merci de l'invitation!

@Osbornb : I understand the problem... but I'll have to say no... because some people will comment on your pictures for example. So replacing them would be like rewriting history.

Innamorata Crush 12 years ago
Hello, hello, I think this group is a wonderful idea. I tend to shy from 365 concept groups as I tend not to photograph every day. BUT the diarist component totally convinced me. I may not take a photo every single day (though that is my aim) as I understand my mind and moods tend to cycle from introvert to hermit *L* and I am not going to beat myself up if I do miss. I think the idea will have me posting more often, I have always been drawn to diaries of all sorts and I look forward to browsing the group once the New Year has arrived.

~ Phil Moore 12 years ago
This is a fab idea - I've seen people do it on their own but I guess by being part of a 'group' doing it there will be more motivation and may provide the impetus you need on the days where you don't bother.

I know that there will end up being a lot of 'oops, no photos so far, this is a sleep head' as I drift off, but I hope that it will also act as a motivation to make the most of every day!

Thanks for the invite & heads-up, Philippe.

Thanks for the invite.
As you asked for,I've sent the invitation to all my contacts and it seems to be working!
For me I'm not sure to be able to post one photo a day (as I didn't in the test group) because yep,some days are not that great and well,I'm not fond of the looking back on what my year was,I know it well enough;But at least I'll be happy to read others and the good days I'll be happy to post them,at least it makes sense:that way,looking back on 2007 I'll be able to see those good days!
Weird,I feel like I'm talking to my shrink here!lol
So thanks again and I'm not sure to post nude if in the end it's gonna appear in a book! hehe ;D

Thank you for the invite! I'm going to try to complete the whole year in this group. I tried the 365 Self Portrait Group, and quickly tired of taking photos of myself. But since this is a much more journalistic themed group, I'm sure I'll have an easier time of it, I love looking at things, and I try to have my camera with me all the time (I can cheat and use my cellphone if I don't though!) It's much easier to tell the story of my day in pictures anyway... the trick I'm sure is adding the most relevant or interesting points of the new year! I'm going to go start my topic now, I can't wait!!

I'm starting to FREAK out. I know, I know, I said I wasn't going to beat myself up if I missed a day, but I didn't count on the internal pressure. How am I going to take a pic every day let alone have it not be teh suck??? Okay I am freaked and excited. I imagine the exercise will have me searching more, seeing more, will push my imagination, my thoughts. I think there will be forward motion just by training oneself to act every day and that will be good.

um yes FREAKED!!!

Federici, how was your move to Seattle? I'm in Bellevue at the moment, visiting family (though I'm actually from San Diego), and I'll be here through New Year's. It'll be a great way to start the year, and I'll be interested to see where I wind up a year from now.

I've always got my camera on me; and if I don't I've got my cameraphone--I think my problem will be in deciding which picture of the day to choose!

I love that you all love this idea.

Those last days have been pretty busy, with Christmas and New Year's Eve, so you didn't hear a lot form the admins.
Do not be worried. We were silent but busy.

So, here are a couple of news :
- There will be a "15th of the month" photo topic : A new theme will be announced every month, and you'll be able to post your pictures on that topic from the 15th until the end of that month. Of course, the themes will be coherent with the group's.
- I'll post in the minutes to come a new topic where you'll be able to post your good year wishes "cards".
- And another one is following soon : the Q&A topic.

Have all a wonderful year, by the way.

Here are the official tags for the photos you post in your personal topic.
You don't have to use them, but it would be nice. It will ease a lot the project at the end of the year.

MDPD2007/(month) (like MDPD2007/01 for January, MDPD2007/02 for February, etc...).

@CiScO : the photo could be private on people's stream and only visible in the topic.
@Atryu : yes, Tag and Public photo is a good point, we gonna come back on that point very soon.

@Frere Jacques : do it here, it says "Feel free to do it here (and only here)." ;-)
James KEZMAN Photo PRO 12 years ago
D'accord, but I was thinking of starting a general discussion on good small digital cameras -- I am looking to upgrade & am curious what everyone else is using....
@Frere Jacques : I think there's some other groups dedicated to that kind of stuff!
leroyer 12 years ago
Yep, no tag for the day, just a general one and the "month" one. 2 tags is already a lot to ask to people.
I think if we count the untagged pictures, a daily tag would not be that pertinent. But I might be wrong.

Some of the photos are not public, so you can only access them in the topic. That's up to the person who posted it.
There is no rule against that... yet.
We're discussing it though.

are we on the flickr blog yet? we should be.

one remark: I've marked the photos I use for my diary as private: they're only visible through the group and the topic. I've done this to have more freedom in what I choose to show to the group. and to keep my photostream intact for non-group viewers. I imagine that there are more people who do similar things. So you may discuss it, but if you were to vote against such practices, as admins, I would be forced to drop out of the project. sorry.

Samrag 12 years ago
Ok a point that I haven't seen here yet (unless it has been written in French).
As we post our photos in our diary msg/discussions thread-thingi... we began to create extremely long discussions, with a lot of photos.
Even if the Flickr system itself might handle it I would guess that few other will begin to experience problems (people visiting discussion for the first time - waiting for all the medium sized photos to appear, people with slow connection speed, people just generally checking many discussion threads a day - always scrolling scrolling scrolling to the bottom of each thread.....etc. etc. etc.)

Am I the only one thinking this will become problem or...

I saw one person posting a new discussion thread for each day - which I personally think is way to much... seeing that we would have 1000s of threads in couple of months....

But... should we maybe consider that each person (that sticks to this wonderful project) creates a new thread for each month???

Or... have I missed something completely - are there some solutions, ways,... something I've missed???

~ Phil Moore Posted 12 years ago. Edited by ~ Phil Moore (member) 12 years ago
I believe that flickr pages long discussion threads, so once it reaches some threshold, you'll have page 1, 2, 3 etc...

It is a bit of a problem with having to scroll down to the bottom of the page to see recent updates, but it's easy enough to press the End key and jump down.

And on the issue of page load times, as the diaries seem to be attracting a lot of other comments, as well as the photos themselves, I believe that it shouldn't be too much of a problem as the paging limit will be reached with fewer images.

For reference, there's the D'une photo à l'autre - Let's see where this takes us thread, where pretty much every reply contains an image, and it took about 12 seconds to load. (No, I didn't count, Fasterfox told me!)
Diary entries will have less of an image/text ratio and so shouldn't be too much of a problem, and I just noticed that it also includes the paging at the top, so it's easy to jump to the most recent ^_^

I guess it might make things slightly easier to view if every time we add the 'daily entry', we add a link to it from the intro, but then that involves adding your entry and updating another reply... Just a thought. (Each reply has it's own HTML ID, so you can 'target' them from a HTML link.)
I'm not sure I explained that very well, so for reference, I've included it on my own MDPD - see the [Most recent entry] link.

It Pap Sorry about my way of explaining that - after last night's excesses my head isn't really working properly! I'm afraid there's no simple way to do what I did, without inspecting the HTML code which requires a certain level of geek, although it's not too tech. Do many people use Firefox here? If so, I might be able to knock up a wee Greasemonkey script...

LBT As far as I know, flickr doesn't have any method of auto forum signature thingies, but if you use Firefox (and Greasemonkey), then this adds a little dropdown menu for such things:
