I think paying is not a good idea...
we all know that free internet site must have publicity to have money... and that everybody... or everysite want money (and more and more...)
the problem is just: please not too much publicity and also please just pleasant one ☺

DOWN THE ROAD I am sure you won't have enough members to worry about it. If people don't post photos, you have no site. It's just another example of a corporation cannablaizing the component that allows it's existance for obscene profits.

So, TE will rake in huge dollars on the obnoxious ads that the poor will be forced to view, and then rake in more dollars from the suckers who pay to not be assaulted with crap.

Will you still delete threads in the forums if PAYING members start/contribute to them?

Great idea, can I start paying right now so that my threads won't be deleted?...

Indeed, who said freedom of speech comes for free?... :)

I'm afraid it's now official:

IB killed Trek Earth.

RIP. We'll miss you.

In this special case of multiposting it will be better to divide for each member the total of his points by the number of his pictures.
But I'm not hooked by this new project; is just my opinion.

Totally disagree on this one Didi. If the right to post multiple images is based on the average number of points per image it only encourages the worst excesses of the cliques of the past who gave points to certain other members irrespective of the merits of the photo posted.
I am totally opposed to any increase in the number of images posted per day.

:)) I mean not per day
I give you an example
You have a total of 50260 points and 716 pictures ;
The result 50260/716= 70,19 points average.
If in the future we are allowed to post more than one pictures I do not think that we will get more critics.
I don't think that one member will have to spent more time face to his computer writing critics and giving point. If I do that, my wife will ask me for divorce :)
I will not change my habits in the future, it will always be one image per week depending on my availability.
I prefer to keep better contact with member sharing our knowledge about pictures than points.
I wish you a happy new year.
Didi

To Prisley 28-12-09.
I completely agree with you! Anyway, the members who want to, can post up to 9 photos a day, if they use TE, TL, TN and the WS a day! And God knows how they do that!
I do hope tht IB will come to their senses with the coming of the New Year!
