ZeroOne ADMIN April 8, 2016
Dear members! It has been an interesting journey. However, I believe it's now time to quit, once and for all. There are already too many groups in Flickr that have just quietly faded into oblivion, where no rules are enforced. I believe it's not fair to anyone to have such groups, where one joins with high hopes and is then disappointed. So I'll give this group a proper burial by disabling posting entirely. Thank you all, keep shooting in b&w!

Yours,
-ZeroOne / group admin

Group Description

This group has been closed. Thank you for your interest!

----

Rate and Comment: Black and White is a group where you can post your black and white photographs and recieve feedback and ratings on them.

1. You must post a picture and then immediately rate the previous five pictures prior to yours.

2. The scores will be out of ten, you must leave constructive criticism to say what you liked or disliked about the picture.

When you make comments please try to think of others, lazy comments and remarks such as 'It doesn't do it for me', 'I don't like ####' or 'It's been done before' will not be tolerated. I want you to rate it technically but also think about the subject.

Copy and paste this to your comment:

From the <b><a href="https://www.flickr.com/groups/blackwhiterate/">Rate and Comment:Black and White</a></b> Group, you are given a _/10 ranking.

Which Should then look like this,

From the Rate and Comment:Black and White Group, you are given a _/10 ranking.

3. You must not post another picture until at least five more have been posted since your last one.

Once you have your five scores they will get added up and scored out of fifty.

4. This group is invite-only, but anyone is invited to apply. When applying for the group, leave a message that convinces the administrator that you have read the rules. Candidates applying with messages such as "Oi!", "I'd like to join", "Love your group!", etc. will be rejected. We were forced to adopt this policy after too many people thought that it was optional to follow or in fact to even read any rules.

5. Finally, this should go without saying, but let's be clear: be polite! No rude comments, no harassing, and no revenge scoring. If you get a bad score, you will be grateful and learn from the criticism. Violating any rule may get you or your photo removed from the group.

6. All members are expected to report any and all users who violate any of these rules using the Official Rulebreakers Thread. The moderator team will then deal with the offender appropriately.

Group Rules

-1: THIS GROUP HAS BEEN CLOSED! Thank you for your interest! No new members will be accepted.

----

0: Read all these rules, including rule number four. Failing to follow rule number four will get your application declined. The ugly truth is that anyone can click "I Agree" without reading a word of the group rules.

----

1. You must post one black and white (or sepia) picture and then immediately rate and comment on the previous five (and not just any five) pictures prior to yours. Selective color photos are not allowed in this group.

2. The scores will be out of ten, you must leave constructive criticism to say what you liked or disliked about the picture.

When you make comments please try to think of others, lazy comments and remarks such as 'It doesn't do it for me', 'I don't like ####' or 'It's been done before' will not be tolerated. I want you to rate it technically but also think about the subject.

3. You must not post another picture until at least five more photos have been posted by other people since your last one.

If you encounter multiple consecutive photos posted by the same person, you must skip past them in the commenting process. Multiple consecutive photos will be removed from the group anyway.
