Lightbulb Spring, flowers and TOS

Hi all
This message concerns all the members of TrekEarth and especially the "new ones".
Spring is time for great pictures but each of us must remember that the TOS does not allow close shots of flowers and/or plants.
Rule 5 of TOS: http://www.trekearth.com/terms.php As the purpose of TrekEarth is to learn about the world through photography, shots of common objects (like closeups of any flowers or plants, water droplets, toothbrushes etc.) tend not teach us anything without a suitable note (not a Wikipedia copy or else), so unless there's a suitable note they will be deactivated at the discretion of site moderators. If you wish to post these types of image please consider using our sister site TrekLens: http://www.treklens.com/

A solution
If you wish to post a flower in TE, it's possible to post it in a WS of your main subject.
And for your Easter wishes nothing prevents you from writing a few lines in the general forum with a link to your WS.

Thank you for your understanding.
