New Mandates: In the past, we used a mandate list, but more recently we have adopted a monthly mandate excercise which has worked quite well, and allowed for more extensive participation. If you have an idea, please send it here!

Critiquing photos (This is not part of the rulz, just something to consider)

One of the interesting aspects of the SI is the reaction of others. We all anticipate hearing good and not so good things about our photographic efforts. Honest criticism has value, but as anything of value it is not trivial to do. So please consider the following before making a critique:

So do comment and critique the work of others remembering that you can only learn from their full, considered and honest critique, and likewise they can only learn from your full, considered and honest critique.

In making comments, it's also recommended that a link to each photo appear with the comment to make it easy for comment readers to locate the particular photo.
