Add critique and explanation of score here

.............................==================................................
Specific vs Vague. Fluff versus Meaningful Note that words like nice, good, awesome, and problematic, disturbing etc. are general. To be specific is to state WHAT is nice, good, awesome, or bad, etcetera, or WHY it is so. It's even better if you can then suggest any techniques to improve any noted deficiencies.




IF YOU FIND A NON-RATER
Do not rate their photo. Apply this code to their photo:

Group Rules

To Join This Group.
We know from extensive experience that most of the people that will click on the join button that says they agree with these rules, will not have actually read them. Some will learn as they go. Some may get along somehow. Some will be violated, have their photos removed, and possibly their membership revoked or banned--either with their first submission, or a later one. A few will request to be re-allowed into the group. They will be advised to...do what? Read the rules. Re-admittance after banning is covered in Rule 4.



Pre-1: Check the photos you are going to rate for flooders. A flood photo is a photo from the same photographer in any adjacent group of five. If you see any, do not rate those photos. Just skip them and continue rating as usual.

1) RATE the first 5 photos in the pool using the Official Rating Code prominently displayed on the front page; and advise how you arrived at your score in accord with the Critique Comment Guidelines.

2) SUBMIT one photo. Double check to ensure the five photos immediately before yours have your rating.

3) If noticed, DO NOT RATE NON-RATERS. Insert the code, but leave the score blank. For a comment, state you do not rate non-raters. Then rate an additional photo on the end. *

4) If you are cited and in inadvertent or unintentional VIOLATION OF ANY RULES, promptly rate five photos per violation in the Missing Rating Thread (MRT); per violation, but never less than 10 ratings. If banned and desirous of reinstatent, rate an additional 15. When done, promptly notify the citing staff member via flickrmail for verification and issuance of a notice of satisfaction and clearance to submit again. If you intentionally did not rate, double the restitution requirement.

5) ENSURE the five photos prior to yours are rated. If at any time they are not, and upon request from any member or staff, promptly return and rate them.

6) Do not advertise (SPAM) anything with your rating: personal, including your photostream, or commercial.

10. This is an adult group. Tasteful, artistic nudes or implied nudes is allowed. Tawdry, voyeristic type photos, or pornography is not desired. Photos with profane titles are subject to removal.

17. Know all these rules. Know the information on the front page. And whatever is in the Admin Squawk Box whenever you visit.


* If you fail to watch out for non-raters and rate an extra photo when you find them, expect to be requested later to return and rate more photos.
