Fans of Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch
The main photo area on the forum is mainly for Deadliest Catch, Boat, and Water related photos. That is what other forum members are looking for when they browse through that area. When a lot of personal photos invade that area other forum members start contacting the mods to ask that they be moved.
We just wanted to clarify the Photo Posting Procedure for the forum. The software isn't very plain in its explanation for posting and we often find photos that should remain personal revealed in the general forum. (oops!)
TO POST PHOTOS ON YOUR PERSONAL PAGE: Go to: Settings, then Privacy, then "My blog, photos and videos can be viewed by..." PLEASE CHOOSE "Just my friends" or "Just me" If you choose "anyone" they are posted in the general pics and everyone can then view them.
A good thing to do after posting photos you wanted to be private is to go to the main Photo area and make sure you can't see them there.
Update: 2.10.11 - If you've been contacted and asked to move pictures but haven't replied or complied, please do not take it personally if we remove your photos form this area. Doing so is in the interest of the other forum members. Thanks!
Update 4.12.2011 - Only repost photos that are yours to share. If they are borrowed, state that it is borrowed from ________, and link back to it giving them the credit for their photo. Better yet, if possible, ask the person beforehand AND link back to it.
Please read: http://webnet77.com/webstuff/copyright.html Pay special attention to the summary.

Every day or so I go through the photos. If something is really objectionable I remove it right away and contact the member. It takes a little time to figure out how our picture posting works. We all had to figure it out when we joined. I have been contacting the people who post personal pictures and giving them the link showing how to move them to their own private page. If they haven't been moved in a couple days or so then I delete the photos.
The gentleman with the hats I believe you are refering to is from another country and probably doesn't speak english all that well. I have contacted him too. If anyone finds pics that are objectionable or personal and should be on a private page, feel free to send me a message here on the forum. I will gladly take care of it. No need for anyone to be upset.
Whether it be problems with photos, in the chatroom, or elsewhere in the forum, PLEASE feel free to contact the mods. We're here to help. We can't do that if we're not contacted. (For those who do contact us, thanks; it is deeply appreciated) :)
