Welcome to The Storybook Challenge Group!! Have fun! :0)

Group Description

WELCOME TO THE STORYBOOK CHALLENGE GROUP!

Group Rules
The following are rules that we ask you to agree to before joining. There is a full set of rules on the group’s main page. Also, if you join, please read our FAQ, which further details how our group operates.
General

Q: What is The Storybook Challenge Group about?

A: The Storybook Challenge Group combines the best components of several other challenge groups into one group! However, our main goal is for you to HAVE FUN! There are many different levels for you to accomplish along the way, such as "Over the River” and "Through the Woods" to just name a few.

Q: What if I have a question and it’s not solved through this FAQ?
A: You can always send Flickrmail to any of the Mods or Admins. We will gladly help you! We also have a daily chat room where you can post anything you would like.

Q: Can I post photos to the group pool?
A: You may post any picture to the group pool as long as it has an award from Storybook challenges.

Types of Challenges

Q: How many "regular" challenges are there?

A: There are 10 regular challenges, called the Over the River Challenges (threads 01-10). They have themes selected by the Mods/Admins. Or can be selected by participants. Additionally, there is also 2 Through the Woods Challenge (thread 15+16) for photos that have already won an Over the River Challenge.

Entering Challenges

Q: Can I enter a photo that is not hosted on Flickr?

A: No, this is a Flickr group and we cannot add awards to photos that are not hosted on Flickr.

Q: Am I allowed to enter more than one picture per challenge?
A: No, only one photo per person, because everyone needs a fair chance at winning.

Q: How many challenges can I enter at one time?
A: You can participate in 4 Over the River or Through the Woods Challenges at a time (threads 01-16). Entries in monthly challenges do not count towards the 4 challenge maximum. If a participant has more than 4 photos in active (open or voting) Over the River and Through the Woods Challenges, then some of the pictures may be removed.

Q: Do the photos entered in challenges have to be ones that I have taken?
A: Yes, all photos must have been taken by you. This is not just a group rule, but is also a Flickr TOS and a way to avoid copyright infringement.

Q: Are photos that have been post-processed or Photoshopped allowed in challenges?
A: Yes, we will not exclude any post-processed or Photoshopped photos in a challenge unless the theme of the challenge is specifically for pure photos. However, images entered MUST be photographs (no computer created images).

Q: Can I enter a photo that is set to private?
A: No, we cannot post awards to photos that we cannot see.

Q: How do I post to a challenge?
A: How to post your photo in our threads:
* Click on your photo in your photostream.
* Click on the button above your photo named "All Sizes.”
* Select size "Medium" or "Small" depending on the thread rules.
* Select and copy the HTML code from the first box below the photo.
* Paste the HTML code in your message, in the desired thread.
* Make sure your number your photo above the html code.
* Click on the button "Post Now.”

Voting

Q: How many votes win?

A: In the Over the River and Through the Woods Challenges, 5 votes win. For the weekly challenges, the picture with the most votes at the end of the voting period wins.

Q: Can I vote in a challenge I have entered?
A: No, not if it is entered in any of the Over the River or the Through the Woods Challenges. If you have entered a challenge, other than those challenges, then you are required to vote for a picture other than your own.

Q: How do you vote?
A: You look at the most recent votes, then add yours, depending on what picture you like. For example, before you vote the score is: 3-4-1. If you want to vote for picture #3, the score would then be: 3-4-2. Remember to check after posting your vote to ensure the vote is correct. Sometimes people post their votes at the same time.

Q: If I see that a challenge already has a photo with 5 votes should I vote anyway?
A: NO, this can only cause confusion.

Q: Can I vote if I'm not participating in a challenge?
A: Yes! We highly encourage this even if you are not participating in any of the challenges. However, if you are a participant in a challenge, it is a requirement that you vote in all challenges marked “VOTE” (including weekly challenges) within 20 minutes of entering the challenge.

Q: What if someone has casted a vote at the same time as me?
A: You can simply edit your post. (Please don’t delete your post!) Let’s say the vote was 2-2-2 when you saw it. You voted for the third picture and posted 2-2-3. Then you see that the person above you said 3-2-2. Just take your votes and add the person’s vote above you. 2-2-3>>3-2-3

Q: If I see a voting mistake what should I do?
A: Post in the Daily Chat thread and an Admin or Mod will correct the voting. If it appears that no one is around you can always Flickrmail an Admin or Mod also.

Winning

Q: I have just won a challenge, now what?

A: An Admin/Mod will post an award on your picture. Depending on what level you have completed this will vary.

Q: When can I post my photo to the group pool?
A: When the award has been placed on your photopage, you may add that picture to the group pool.

Q: Is commenting on winning photos required?
A: No, although it is highly encouraged.

Other

Q: What if it's taking a long time to get 3 entries in a challenge but some entries have already been posted?

A: An Admin/Mod might alter the theme a bit or set the challenge to early vote.

Q: What if I see that someone has posted more than 4 pictures in the Over the River and Through the Woods challenges?
A: You can Flickrmail an Admin or a Mod to let them know.

Q: Can we comment in challenge threads?
A: Only if you post something above your picture like, “taken in Dominican Republic,” or when you are voting and compliment ALL the pictures (but make it brief like: All look great!). If you would like to comment on an individual picture, please do so in that picture’s comments.

Q: What does the word "BUMP" mean?
A: That is the word used to move any thread back to the top of the list.

1. This is a family friendly group. We do not accept suggestive images, nudity, violence or other offensive content. A child of any age should be able to view your photo. If you aren’t sure if your picture is acceptable, then please don’t post it. Any photos violating these rules will be removed.

2. Respect your fellow members. Any posted comments must be polite and respectful.

3. Do not block any group moderators or administrators.

4. Challenge entries MUST be photos. They can have post-processing, but cannot be wholly created on a computer.

5. All photos must be hosted on Flickr.

6. If an active challenge receives no further votes for more than 6 hours it will be closed and the winner will be the photo with the most votes received so far"

7. Feel free to ask if you have any questions.

8. Have fun!
