Group Guidelines

The Photo Pool

Please feel free to post your photos taken with a Sony Alpha camera in the Photo Pool. There is no particular topic—just whatever your eye and your camera capture! Please keep in mind;

- This is a work friendly / family friendly group. Please do not post anything that might be considered offensive or that would get someone in trouble at work (nudity, gross stuff, etc).

- You may post 3 photos per day to the photo pool. The group has grown significantly as the Alpha has become more and more popular—a posting limit makes this group much more enjoyable to for everyone.

The Discussion Board

The discussion board can be a great place for you to discuss all sorts of things related to Sony Alpha and photography in general. Please feel free to begin new discussions as well as regularly participate in on-going discussions.

- Please refrain from name-calling and rudeness in any form.

- Do not SPAM the discussion boards with advertisements. Especially don't sell anything here.

- If you need some help with how to post one of your photos in a discussion, see the explanation on how to do that.

Basically, adhere to flickr's Community Guidelines when you post photos or participate in discussions.
