Default Reminder about notes

Recently we have seen and removed a number of images where the notes do not conform with the Terms of Service. Please see the section of the TOS replicated below.

"Photographer's Notes:

i. All photos must contain a note of a minimum of 40 characters in order to be uploaded.

Only meaningful notes will be considered, so please do not try to get around the issue by posting nonsense such as " fhgdfhd rthdfjgbnd fgjkfk".

The following other nonsensical notes will also be deemed inappropriate:

- using your camera description/ exif data as a note,
- clicking the space bar until you have reached 40 characters,
- repeating the same words or partial phrases over and over e.g.: "this is a flower this is a flower" and finally:
- notes that merely describe the obvious, e.g. : " this is a man standing in front of a church".

Notes that fit any of the above criteria may be subject to deletion by our moderators.

ii. It is not permitted to copy and paste large sections of text from other sites. If you wish to refer to information on other sites you must provide a link to that site instead.

Short passages from other sites may be included only if the source of that information is included e.g. (Source Wikipedia) and if the rest of the note follows the Terms of Service guidelines above and is in the member's own words (and language, if necessary)
