I talked with Wren about this a while ago, and I think we should make some changes to the rules to keep the community flowing better, at least for a while. So, some new rules:
(1) In the subject line of your entry you're no longer to put "Oy Gevalt!" You now have to put "Week #: Theme" in the subject line. This makes it easier for me when I go back and archieve everyone's entries.
(2) Photoshopping is now a new element in submissions. That is, with the Theme always comes picture type-- Candid, Old, Staged, etc.-- but now you will either be allowed or NOT allowed to Photoshop.
Photoshopping includes the following:
-Color Balance, Brightness or Contrast alterations
Bascially anything that isn't simple resizing. Some themes will allow photoshopping, others won't. Take note. Some may even REQUIRE photoshopping.
(3) For the time being, Wren and I will be the only one posting themes. This is because some community members are not as active as others, which is fine, but it slows everyone down when it comes to selecting and posting themes, etc. Of course, we still want your themes, so I'm going to make a post after this one where everyone can propose themes and we will use them at some point or another.
(4) For now, challenges will last 2 days. You can submit from as soon as the challenge is posted until the next is posted.
Any other questions, suggestions, input, etc., feel free to comment! Thanks everyone! Here's to hopping the Oy Gevalt gets back on it's feet!
EDIT: Also, I completely redid the community info-- so everyone check it out if you have a chance and let me know what you think! Thanks!
