Recommendation about notes... Porteplume Gold Star Critiquer/Silver Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C: 125 W: 26 N: 57] (561)::2011-12-12 4:20
A new tool has been added and a photo could be inactivated because of "Insufficient note"

Here the TOS rule about "Notes":

Photographer's Notes:

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.

Hi Viviane,
I think that you may be opening the door to lots of arguments due to the new rule being left to a moderator, whether an image will be deleted or not, due to its abscence of notes.If an image is to be deleted due to an infringement of a TL ruling,then surley all images that fall into this new ruling should be deleted? There either is a new rule for all TL users or it really is not a rule?

Hi Ron,
It is NOT a new rule. The rule about notes has always been there in TOS.
What I meant to say is that we easier can sanction a photo without note or with an insufficient note.
A good note is something a lots of members are asking...

Kind regards - Viviane

Thank you Vivianne,but you did say a new Tool & yes I'm aware that the ruling about notes has always been there,but never really activated in the past,hence I would imagine,is part of the reason some members feel strongly if they follow the rules,then why not the whole membership. I think if the rule is going to be upheld,then it should be that way for all images that have no notes, & not a selective choosing.I said before that I think it is a difficult rule,as there are images that require no notes,as the visual is that strong,it requires no interpretation from the photographer, other than the image itself.
Kind Regards
Ron
