Even if it has been mentioned before, this ELEMENTARY advice bears repeating: Don't post a pic with the city name and/or country in the URL. It's like seeking privicy with an open door...

Tip 3: Do not pick a city that has been done by someone else recently.
Tip 4: Do not pick the city you live in.

Picking Photos
Tip 1: Don't pick a photo showing a clearly identifiable landmark or building.
Tip 2: Don't pick a photo showing signs or writing disclosing too much information.
Tip 3: Don't pick a photo that is too small or too large.
Tip 4: Don't pick a photo that is too zoomed in or is too unspecific.
Tip 5: If you're using Google, don't pick a result off the first page.

Tip 6: And above all, don't pick a photo whose URL contains the city and/or country name.

Apart from these : There need not be posting or point rules for threads by newbies or innovative threads

Those threads that ARE to be entered in the OVERALL POINTS TALLY should have the word (points) in thier title ?

also rules need to be drawn as to when to fgivev a clue etc.. like one clue per page or so and how many guesses per post etc

RULES:

-Just be kind and respectful to others.

HOW TO POST A PICTURE:

1) Pick a picture, whether it’s taken by you or was simply found in the Internet.

1b) If you found the picture from the Internet, save into you computer, these are the most common files accepted: .jpeg, .jpg, .png, .gif, .bmp, .tif, .tiff.

2) Before you can post your pictures in SSC, you will need an image host. An image host is a place where you can save your pictures in the Internet. There are many free online image hosts out there. The most commonly used are www.imageshack.us and www.photobucket.com.

3) After you’ve found an image host, create an account.

4) Upload your picture to your account (your image host will tell you what to do).

5) After you’ve uploaded your picture, you will receive a URL for the picture. Click-right and copy the URL.

6) To post your picture in SSC, press the Insert Image button or the yellow button with the mountain. A pop-up box will appear on the screen. Paste the URL and then press OK. The URL of your picture will appear and will look like this. >>> [img]URL[/img] <<<

7) After you’re are done, press submit and your picture will appear.

POINTS*:

You can make your own point system (example below).

MattSal's Point System
Continent = 1 point
Country = 2 points
City = 3 points
Exact Location = 4 points
BONUS = 2 points

* Points doesn't apply to all GTC threads.

If you think there's something that I should change, please tell me.
hey you idea for guess the city is good.
i will also participate in this. i think it will a great fun and we can increase our knowledge about different cities all over the world.
