Welcome to Rate_Photo_Art
This community is for LJ members who have an interest in photography and want real, honest, feedback.
Rules and Regulations.
Submitting a photo:
Note: Please submit up to ONE photo a day. You may submit more than one only if the photos are of a series and are to be rated as a series. There must be some relationship between the photos. Nudes or images with questionable content should be put behind LJ-cut.
Copy and paste this when you update. DO NOT USE RICH TEXT MODE! Use an LJ-cut. Don’t know what that is: http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=75.
- When posting a photo, you must specify whether you want members to give you feedback, give you a rating, or both. Put your rating in the subject area of your comment. Use a scale from 1-10 (1-2 means you really messed up, 3-5 means if you re-shoot it could be good, 6-7 it is good, but there are some things that could be better, 8-9 excellent and 10, amazing). Then in the actual comment section, put your reasoning, feedback, and suggestions. You are encouraged to give more than a rating whenever possible.
-After 2-7 days of voting, votes will be tallied and you will be given a final averaged rating. After the rating is posted, voting is closed. Some weeks you may have to wait longer for votes to be tallied than others, but that is the set time. This short voting opportunity is due to the large amount of posts every day. Most members don't go back that far for to vote. When your post is stamped please change your subject to stamped. It makes the mods' job easier.
Please see the Member's Page Website for promotion links. They are clearly listed, so you'll have no trouble finding them.
Applying: Copy and paste the auto-application into an update journal entry for this community. DO NOT USE RICH TEXT MODE!
-Voting: You will have two days to be voted on. You need more yes votes than no votes to be accepted. Please do not post or vote on other applications until you have been stamped. If you are rejected, please stop posting. You may re-apply one month after initial application. If you continue to post after being rejected, you will be banned.
-Accepted Applicants: Please post a comment here with the link to your application. Also when you are stamped into the community please change the subject of your application to stamped. This makes it easier for the mods.
-Members who are choosing: Put either YES or NO in the subject area of your comment. Whenever possible, please write your reasoning in the actual comment. Votes of No and Yes alone are not very helpful to anyone. Please be kind. This community is about being honest and giving constructive criticism, not mean or vicious. Please keep the language clean. Please judge applicants' work and not who they are as a person.
USE AN LJ-CUT!!!! If you don't know what an lj-cut is, go here: http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=75
