There could be one stuck thread here for everyone to post their own online urban videos, and another one for found videos in the other forum. One stuck thread should be enough, since a video forum isn't busy at all these days.

That is probably a decision for Jan to make as it is his website. I know the subject has been raised before...

What about flipping Urban Showcase so it appears on top in the photo category. It's been suggested that the top forum is likely to draw more hits.

Hmmm.... that might be a good suggestion! I'll put it to Jan to see what he thinks. Thanks for the input!

I was going to start a General Photography thread, but one thing I noticed is that alot of the one photo per post threads contain many urban related photos, that could partly explain how strangely enough the General Photography section seems to be busier than Urban Showcase.

Maybe the one photo per post threads could be a sub-section of this forum, as long as the photos are original, and not necessarily have to be all urban related if there are alot of urban related photos in them, and this could free up space in the GP section for more general photography threads....

I suppose at the very least one could make a case for a separate one photo per day forum regardless given how many there are which could promote even more, and again free up space for other photography.

They look fine to me, orionbeta1. I can see them all! Maybe you need to clear your browser of all cookies and unnecessary stored files! If you still have problems, pm me and I'll try to help you.

Is General Photography supposed to contain just original photos, or it's supposed to be a mix of original and found photos where the found photos are supposed to be credited there also?

And plus the one photo a day concept seems to be dominant enough to warrant a section under it which would provide more space for it, and free up GP at the same time for threads about any pictures under the sun about any category that don't necessarily pertain to a particular country, but anything else.

perhaps..........

Not sure if London had any representation here, but I have like 1500 good quality 12 megapixel photos from all over London

Tour's of major London museums as well if ppl are interested to see, I'd be happy to share on 3rd(October) I'll take pics in City of London and Might add these as well.... but for now at least I'll leave you all with photo of a what is to be the most expensive property on planet earth once completed.

each apartment in this complex is going at 100 million pounds price tag

I know, I was just,

Tours inside museums would technically be General Photography, if it doesn't primarily focus on the buildings themselves.

But yea freeing up space to get the one photo threads in their own section would provide a better outlet for these things.

Any plans to ban or move all the one photo a day threads in the Urban Showcase? Almost the entire first page is filled with the same threads time after time because thread starters add just a few pics every several days, post one pic a day, or even post one pic at several times a day. Photo posts of people who visited a city are never seen as such threads move quickly pages down because all these one photo a day threads keep going to the top and fill all the page slots.

The problem is people posting ONE photo per post SEVERAL times a DAY .... when in fact several pics can be posted each time. One gets the feeling that they don't have enough photos and have an urgent desire to always be at the top of the page therefore pacing themselves ...

I have many pics and post approx. 15 pics per post, I have also tried to make it more interesting with news snippets etc. sort of like a photo blog.

I am in support of a separate thread being created for people who post one pic at a time - there should also be a rule that if they want to post one pic at a time they can only do so once a day .... "a pic a day" .... you can also include once off city visits like my Sydney, Melbourne and Queenstown threads ... I only travel to those cities once every 2 years and once the pics run out the thread is dead.

Many of us go through a lot of effort to go out and get the pics, post process, upload to photo hosting sites etc. and I might add that we do a gr8 job - there are some amazing threads here that I never tire of .. we deserve our very own forum

It's indeed quite annoying. I suggest a separate subforum in photography for 'Photoblogs' etc.

¿Why are the windows so small in the forum? ¿Is it to save space?

Probably a glitch in the system.
