    Default Report A Picture

    Should there be a thread for this?
    Since I've been taking pictures for the site I have come round to the idea that internal shots should not be shown on the front page but still encounter pubs where this isn't the case.
    There are a couple of shots of Barmouth pubs by Steve of N21 where the pics are the wrong way round but apart from that are perfectly acceptable. This could so easily be fixed and the pictures resubmitted.

    Should the thread include really bad shots of pubs? My personal view is no as although I have seen some very poor pictures how bad does bad have to be, it could all get very messy.

    A resounding yes. But be careful not to tread on sensitive toes.

    A resounding NO

    Pictures have to be approved in the first instance, so not just bunged up and hope picture censors do not spot the the porn images

    There is an option to not show on front page, I have used this to stop some of my internal pics showing, but are visible to those that care to look.

    I think this has to be done by the originator of photo, not a self imposed image censor, or as stated, toes & messy

    There are poor images, but sometimes any is better than none, a "drive by" for instance where no one else has gone to or walked into the pub in question

    Bag of worms!!!

    If there is going to be a rule on what photos are and are not acceptable for the site/front pub page it needs to be put in writing so that everyone is clear on the matter.

    I don't take many photos and certainly do not think of myself as the next David Bailey, but even I know that a blurred picture of a pub through the dirty window of a moving train at dusk is not acceptable. What is not so obvious to people that do not use the forums is that we don't want pictures of plates of food. What is even less obvious is that any interior shots of pubs should not be shown on the main pub page (I'm not sure I understand the thinking behind this one as I think a good picture of the bar is just as informative as a picture of the exterior). There is also another rule that bans photos of people posing, this isn't Farcebook!

    Is it ok to add picures of shops/blocks of flats/empty fields because a pub used to stand in that location? Is it ok to add a picture of a house for architectural reasons because it obviously used to be a pub?

    Should pictures of pubs covered with scaffolding be submitted? Should pubs have so many duplicate pictures uploaded onto them? Is it ok to add a picture of a local landmark that can/cannot be seen from the pub?

    As I understand it an internal shot is changed by the approvers so it doesn't show on the front page after approval. This doesn't seem to have been applied in certain cases and the poster of the photo hasn't made the change themselves. I had the impression that this was one of the rules regarding pictures. As for poor pictures I agree, it would be unworkable as who is to say how bad it has to be.

    You are correct, the monkeys have the ability to press the "don't show on main page" button sometimes we forget though as it pops up afterwards.

    Indeed, but we really shouldn't need to consider quality, people should self-censor the pictures of mucky bus windows with what might be a pub in the background or the fourth photo of a nail bar that stands on the site of a pub or .......etc, etc,

    Yes, but it would seem that the competition is fierce to be the top snapper. One may be led to believe that in some cases quantity wins over quality.

    I agree completely. I did spot a picture a while back that looked as though it had been taken from the top deck of a bus. The same person had posted perfectly good street level pics of the pub a few years earlier. What was the point of that?

    I agree, but go further to say that a good interior picture can give a much better idea to what a pub is really like.

    Yes I am still a bit undecided in this one,I have suppressed a few of my internal shots from the front page but now thinking again, when researching a new pub I am thinking of visiting I always look for internal shots , it gives a more in depth view and feel of the pub and you presumably will be spending more time there than standing back admiring the architecture.
