Group Rules

SWEEPING IS CARRIED OUT DAILY. PLEASE REMEMBER TO AWARD IMMEDIATELY ON POSTING. AT LEAST 2 OF THE FIRST 50 IMAGES MUST BE AWARDED.

1) Post 1 : Comment/Award 2 . The group award code MUST accompany any comment. These must be made within the first 50 images in the group, or they may not be picked up by the Sweeper.


THIS GROUP IS MODERATED & EVERY IMAGE CHECKED TO ENSURE IT COMPLIES WITH THE RULES.

DO NOT WAIT FOR YOUR IMAGE TO BE ACCEPTED INTO THE GROUP BEFORE LEAVING YOUR COMMENTS AND AWARDS

THE GROUP WILL BE CHECKED AT LEAST 3 TIMES EACH DAY FOR PENDING IMAGES.

IF YOUR IMAGE DOES NOT APPEAR IN THE GROUP, IT DID NOT QUALIFY - PLEASE DO NOT REPOST IT. DELETING OR REPOSTING IS NOT ALLOWED WITHOUT CONSULTING AN ADMINISTRATOR.


THE FOUR SIMPLE RULES

1) Post 1 : Comment/Award 2 . The group award code MUST accompany any comment. These must be made within the first 50 images in the group, or they may not be picked up by the Sweeper. Further Awards would always be welcome. ( If no awards are left, you will be removed from the group).
We will not tolerate Members who post and leave no comments/awards - your Membership and images will be withdrawn

2) 'PURE NATURE ONLY' Nothing Man-made or artificial, this includes flowers photoshopped 'on black'. IMAGES THAT APPEAR TO HAVE AN UNNATURAL OR CONTRIVED BACKGROUND WILL BE REFUSED.

PLAIN BACKGROUNDS MUST BE NATURAL AND TAGGED AS SUCH OR THEY WILL BE REFUSED. IF WE CANNOT DECIDE WHETHER SOMETHING IS MAN-MADE OR MAN-CONSTRUCTED, AND YOU HAVE LEFT NO CLUE IN YOUR DESCRIPTION OR TAGS, THE IMAGE WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY REFUSED.


3) No ornate or deep/wide frames - simple borders are acceptable, as are horizontal/vertical parallel bars. No textures or writing (save for copyright signature, and image title).

4) No people, pets or zoo (caged) animals.


_______________________________________________________________________

THE REAL MEANING


PLEASE COMMENT/AWARD TWO (2) OF THE FIRST 50 IMAGES IN THE POOL. Further comments may be made at your leisure

IF COMMENTS/AWARDS ARE NOT DETECTED YOU WILL EVENTUALLY HAVE YOUR MEMBERSHIP AND IMAGES WITHDRAWN FROM THE GROUP.

Any member found to be advertising will be banned without notice. This contravenes Flicks rules and will not be tolerated in this group.


This group is for sharing artistic images of nature, not just beautiful photographs. You must imagine them being mounted in a frame and hanging on a gallery wall. I am not looking for snapshots!

NO MAN-MADE STRUCTURES OR PEOPLE, however insignificant

THIS MEANS:
NO ROADS
NO BUILDINGS
NO WALLS
NO BOATS
NO TRAINS
NO BRIDGES
NO WIRES
NO BIRD BATHS
NO ANIMAL/BIRD FEEDERS
BIRDS ON POSTS ETC: If the post is clean/planed/square or has a shaped top it will not be accepted. If it appears rough or natural with only one straight cut it may be accepted.


Please note also:
NO PETS
NO ZOO (CAGED) ANIMALS
NO NATURE OUT OF SITU (Flowers in vases or arrangements, haystacks etc.)


Please remember to comment.....you know how much you like them!

As a member you may post up to 1 images each day, no image may be reposted to gain further awards - this will result in an automatic ban - unless there is a valid reason, which has been approved by the Admins.

Please do not feel offended if your image is deleted from the group, but it must follow the simple rules, I shall try and give it an invite to an alternative one.

If any Member would like to become a Moderator or open a contest or thread,
please contact the Administrator.


Please use the comment, award and invite codes provided


FINALLY


PLEASE DO NOT START NEW THREADS WITHOUT CONSULTING AN ADMINISTRATOR. DO NOT ADD LINKS TO YOUR WORK ALONG WITH OUR GROUP AWARD/INVITE ICONS. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM PLEASE CONTACT The Somerset Ambler, aka John DIRECTLY.


IF AN IMAGE IS SUBMITTED, BUT DOES NOT LATER APPEAR IN THE POOL, IT MEANS THAT IT HAS BEEN REJECTED. PLEASE DO NOT REPOST. TRY ANOTHER IMAGE INSTEAD.

THE ACTIONS OF THE ADMINISTRATORS/MODERATORS ARE FINAL, AND NO DISCUSSIONS WILL BE ENTERED INTO.

IF, HOWEVER YOU BELIEVE WE, OR THE SWEEPERS HAVE MADE A MISTAKE, YOU MAY CONTACT ME, AFTER RECHECKING THE GROUP RULES.

IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT ONLY MEMBERS MAY CONTRIBUTE TO OUR GROUPS.

JOHN
aka THE SOMERSET AMBLER
[Group founder and Chief Administrator]
