Hey everyone! Just a little information on what I’m trying to do and what my vision is for the site.
First and foremost, I want to build a community of people and create a fun place for us to all enjoy each other’s work, and grow as photographers. Over the years, I have joined and left countless communities, (forums, subreddits, etc.) and have found that they are heavily under-moderated. I vow to do everything in my power to ensure a healthy environment.
I have run a lot of websites in the past, and although not all of them have been successful I can say that the ones that were the most successful were the ones where the users drove the website. By that, I mean that there is no one entity that makes the decisions for the site.
I have visions of doing fun challenges and competitions with the other users of the community. Although I don’t have the money to buy cool prizes, I still think it would be great to participate in weekly challenges of some sort, maybe getting us out of our comfort zone and learning something new.
The way the forums are put together, they are incredibly searchable and good content has a way of standing out. This site could be a great resource for photographers of any skill level if it gets used, and I think that having a site like this could be invaluable.
Do you have any ideas for something that we could do to make this site more useful? I would absolutely love to hear what you have to say. You can leave a reply here, PM me on the site, or create a thread in the Site Feedback category if you have suggestions.
