REMINDER

This group is actively moderated. If you post a macro, sky, car, boyfriend, girlfriend, child, shop front, sign, boat, flower, animal, moon, tree, building or anything else that isn't a scenic shot, the image will be removed and you may be removed from the group.

Think "big picture" not single point of interest or close-up detail.

====================================================================

This is my answer to all those landscape groups that won't let you post if you have a telephone wire (and who doesn't if you don't live on a FARM?!) or a building, or an animal, or a person in the shot!

If your pic is of a scenic nature, but there are cars or boats or other things in it that keep you from posting to the landscape purist's groups, then feel free to post to "Scenics, not just landscapes!" Remember, scenics are about SCENES, and that can be just about anywhere!

There has been some controversy as to when to use the special award icon. It's original purpose was to be a special award that you could give if you felt a pic was really superb and over the top! Although it's suggested that normally you would use this award for pics which had already received some attention from the group, this isn't necessary. What IS necessary it that it be a really remarkable pic! Feel free to use it, but make sure the photos you award are of a truly exceptional quality. If it makes you gasp and drop your jaw with envy when you look at it, it's time for a special award!

Group Rules

Please do not join this group if your main goal in life is to have a place to criticize others! It won't be tolerated here and will get you banned if reported!

Please do not join this group unless you know how to read! I post messages- sometimes important ones- on the homepage in the message bullet, or in threads if it's something contributors need to comment on to help me make a decision! (Did YOU ever admin a group? Do you realize there's no way to mass email your contacts on Flickr? That's right , it's an anti-spamming feature. All those notes you get from admins are sent one at a time! If the group gets huge, it's a nightmare, so read the threads and bullets, please!)

Please don't just post and run. If you don't look at other peoples' pics and comment on them sometimes, you're just showing your self-centeredness! Everyone likes to make Explore. You help us, and we'll help you back! This is not a comment group, but comments are greatly appreciated, as is any contribution to the group.

Please post quality pics to the pool, and invite only such.

Please post only your own, or your family's pics to the pool.
Tag your pictures with scenicsnotjustlandscapes! This is not mandatory, but is greatly appreciated as it helps search engines find us! You may also tag them "Scenics, not just landscapes!".

Please VOLUNTEER to moderate, administrate and offer help with icons, etc., as these things take a lot of time and I need all the help I can get!

The three things which will get you banned with no mercy:

1. Being rude to any member including admins and mods. This includes getting petty and argumentative when asked to cooperate. There's no reason for this. We're here to have fun!

2. If you post any images which are of an overtly sexual nature, including pornography, any sex acts of any kind involving people or animals, (nobody really cares about insects- knock your socks off there!) ANY nudity involving children, and I do mean ANY, and anything promoting a sexual agenda of any kind whether it be straight, gay, pink or purple!

3. Political or religious agendas, signs, slogans, or insulting comments directed at any religious group. Images including religious symbols such as crosses, mosques, buddhas, etc., are fine and welcome. This is not the place to post your "Christians are haters, look at their protest signs", or your "all Muslims are terrorists! Look at how high his heels are; they must have explosives in them!" pics! Let's make this a fun group for everyone, and keep it SCENIC as much as possible!

And one rule that may get you removed from the group:
Don't repost an image if it's been removed from the group by a moderator.
