So we had a 10 comments on a photo that has been marked "considered for deletions". And yet again we had a "time to leave" statement. Just like we had in the past when some member/s who deleted all their photos (at least that is what they said will do as I couldn't be bothered to check as I have better things to do like riding my bike, taking photos and having a pint while doing both of those
) and left. Reminds me when my 3 years old says "if I can't have this I won't have any!!!!!"
. So I have to wander, how old are you?
I have 3157 photos and have been a member here for almost 9 years. During this time,I probably had, maybe (I don't keep track as I have better things to do, see above
) dozen of them deleted. That means ) 0.0038 % of my photos have been, oh the horror, deleted
. Never to be seen again, by anybody but me as they have been saved for ME to see. Since I am generally a positive thinker, this also means that 99.9962% of my photos have been accepted for the whole world to see and for anybody to rip them off and post them as their own as it has happened, not just to me.
So if you have, say 5000 photos and 100 have been deleted, do your own math as I have better things to do (see above
) OK, it is 0.02 deletion rate or 99.98 success rate. The passing grade at my college wasn't this high, and I work with people's health, for crying out loud
Sure, you can go, slam the door but...If you have, say 8765 photos and there are 2.5 million photos on SS, how much impact are you having (do your own math now
) . Sure, post your pix on Instagram or Facebook but will they be as appreciated there as they are here?
When I see a photo considered for deletion and like it, I save it on my computer for ME to see as I
like it and may use it for, say, wallpaper.
This is a hobby after all. Does anybody here makes a living from posting photos here? If not, it is your hobby then so don't take things sooooo
Last of my mini (?) rant/philosophy, the rules are not arbitrary. Or are they? Every rule has been written by humans (think of speed limits. Have you ever been stopped by a cop and try to say that the speed limit is just an arbitrary rule? ) so all the rules are somehow arbitrary...which doesn't mean that they can't be changed, bent or be flexible on them, now and then.
So this are my 2 (Canadian) cents. Comments, questions and jokes :)are welcome. Feel free to agree, disagree, add something or deduct. It is all good. Whatever your stand is, I won't delete all of my forum posts and bug out
Greetings from the "wet" coast...
