Group Description

# Note - This group is NOT an OFFICIAL GROUP run or sponsored BY FLICKR #
_________________________________+_________________________________

Explore... have you been in Flickr's Explore?

If so, please consider accepting our ADMIN INVITATION, which should be found on your explored photo's page. Accepting the invitation will add your image to this permanent showcase for images that were "in Explore". This way it is like you get in Explore all over again. Photos located in this group can be seen as a refined subset of the interesting photos currently on Flickr.

A few additional notes:

1) PHOTOS are added to the group pool by users accepting the ADMIN INVITATIONS ONLY.

You cannot add images directly yourself!

2) Invitations are offered ONLY to images that are in Flickr's Explore.

3) Our tireless invite bot David Kracht (a script actually) invites all photos featured in explore once a day (at 4 am UTC) and should invite 99% of all explored images.

However sometimes:

a ) your photo was dropped out Explore before invitations began being made for that day; or
b ) your photo appeared in Explore after the invitations for that day were finished.

We do NOT issue manual invites any more.
Please don't ask for them.
No invite = tough luck.


4) This group does NOT use member invites or comment codes. As such there will be NO BANNERS from this group in your comments! We recommend reading the "Science of Explore" thread if you have questions about how Explore works.

5) Please DO NOT create new discussion threads asking for invitations, for saying hi or thanking us for the invites. Preferably always post in an existing topic. For example our Introduction & thank you thread

6) Same goes for basic newbie explore questions without first consulting our extensive FAQ section HERE.


Thanks!

Cheers... Dave & Ron & Ger & Keith.

Group Rules

The Admins do their VERY BEST to invite photos as soon as they have shown on the Explore page, BUT sometimes:
a ) your photo dropped out Explore before invitations began being made for that day; or
b ) your photo appeared in Explore after the invitations for that day were finished.
... for both reasons, you've our apologies.

This groups issues NO manual invites anymore. Please do not ask for them.

Another firm rule: Do NOT create new TOPICS for thank yous or introductions, but only use the existing official thread.
