Thanks Taller, Better. I might just try that actually, perhaps post Thursday and/or Friday pics on the weekend. I've just now got to try and find a way to get more replies, do you think it's got anything to do with the Urban Showcase not being as popular as the City and Skyline Photography thread?

There's a thread about my country where some guy post a pic every once in a while. Is it okay if I start a thread specifically devoted to pictures I've taken of my city (Mérida)?
Thanks.

With pleasure, Leinad! First you determine the correct section for the thread. If they are your own pictures, then this is the correct section. If they are photos from the internet, and you have saved information about where you got them and hopefully who took the pictures, then you make a thread in Cityscapes section.
Near the top of the left hand side of the page of every forum, there is an option to Start a New Thread. Click on this, give your thread a title, and post photos you have uploaded at a site like www.photobucket.com. They will give you a forum code that you can cut and paste into your new thread! Good luck and pm me if you have any problems.

This looks like a thread that belongs to the other photo section - https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=832444

One of my original suggestions was to make the found photos threads have to be authorized before they appear, which would of course crack down on violations.

And anyone that wants to post their own photos would be deterred from posting there and post it in Urban Showcase.

Off the top of my head I remember reading people posted their original photos in that other section. The key is to force people to post their original photos in the specified forum, and found photos go in the other.

And if found photos have to be approved it would pretty much guarantee that whatever is seen would conform to the rules, and deter people from posting their original photos in that section.

And yea I only bother to post this for the sake of being helpful.

Thanks for the suggestion, but in reality that would involve a HUGE amount of labour. Not only to scrutinize every thread submitted, but threads get photos added to them on a daily business. It would take a small army of people working full time to sift through all the photos. We rely on the common decency of people to follow the rules, and we very much appreciate when people give us a heads up on threads that are violating the rules... we all enjoy photos, and if you see someone has not been crediting properly, please drop me a pm! Thanks!

oh ok

One thing I forgot to mention is that it also may shift the balance of viewership and traffic toward Urban Showcase but it's a moot point now.

Don't know if adding portals to jump back and forth between the 2 photo forums would be useful.

I appreciate the input. After such a long time with the two separated forums, it seems apparent that the traffic in Cityscapes will always remain about twice that of Urban Showcase. Not sure what the reason is, as personally I think it is more interesting to look at original photos taken by our members, but there you have it!

One factor I can think of is that the other photo forum has many more threads than this one, and more threads make for more search engine pick ups therefore more viewers.

As for posting traffic being greater there that's anyone's guess, unless it's because some people are posting their original photos there as well.

I think Cityscapes has the advantage of being the original forum, and a lot of people have just stayed with it out of habit. I do hope more people will enjoy our original photos!

On a final note, maybe it would be worthwhile forbidding original photo threads to be posted in the other forum, since one is supposed to be for original, and the other for found photos. From an organizational standpoint it would make sense and may very well draw more attention to original photo threads.

But then again that's just my opinion, it's up to you as to whether that would be worth the trouble or not.


EDIT: Oddly enough why does General Photography have more viewers and slightly more posting traffic than this forum....

Well, the rules already stand that original photo threads are not allowed in Cityscapes. If you ever see one, please let me know. Much boils down to a lack of time to monitor every single thread that comes up... we very much appreciate pms from people who spot things going awry.

I don't know the answer to that one. These forums are basically for still photography, but I am assuming if you have a you tube urban study video of your city that is relevant you could probably make a thread here. If Jan says otherwise, then my apologies to him!
Just remember only a max of a few embedded Youtube videos per page, as it is too hard to download otherwise. Hopefully you also have some still photography of your city that you could add to plump out the thread a bit.
