Hi Klaus - and everyone else. As a starter for 10, I was wondering whether a small change to the way this forum is structured might be useful. It does appear to be a sometimes difficult task to find people willing to "host" a week of photo-taking and the numbers who do so are relatively small. If the requirement for a "host" was removed, do we think the forum would march on with pics for the week anyway? I have a feeling that it could, in which case all that would be needed from everyone would be a list of proposed subjects and a Moderator could draw up the list on an ongoing basis. For me, I think it is good that this forum is specifically here to encourage us to get out and take pics "this week". I would not mind if there is no one specifically designated as a "host". All I need is the subject and my own volition. I would be very surprised if we could not come up with a 52 week subject list in no time at all, saving Klaus what seems to be a weekly quest for volunteers. It is not as if we are short of comments/appreciation. The problem only appears to be with hosting, not subjects/inspiration.Hello my friends,
please use this thread to ask or discuss about the CS commonly.
I know, and it's great that you do that Nick, and I will chip in for your forthcoming week. But it does look like Klaus has a struggle to find people to take up the cudgels. If there is a list of subjects that are drawn on, week by week, provided by all of us, there is no need for one particular member to stand by his/her computer for a week. We can all just get out there, taking photographs, and still comment on the contributions.I don't mind hosting if I know I'm going to be around home and near my computer for most of the week.
As mentioned elsewhere, Klaus, I'll take CS 615. I will have something posted by the end of today.
OK, you have me on board.If there is a list of subjects that are drawn on, week by week, provided by all of us, there is no need for one particular member to stand by his/her computer for a week.
And god knows I need to do more of the former . .We can all just get out there, taking photographs, and still comment on the contributions.
I haven't been participating here at the Cafe long enough after my recent return to have an informed opinion about that. However, if the people who have been here longer generally agree that participation in the Collective Shoot as it is currently structured has noticeably diminished, that in itself makes it clear to me that at least some changes need to be considered and ultimately made.It may be time for us to rethink and restructure the whole concept of the Collective Shoot.....??
Hi Nick and everyone else. As far as I know, I have NOT claimed 616 and would have a little difficulty in doing so. You are free to take it on and someone else can pick up on 617. Sorry if that throws your schedule out Klaus but I'm not sure where that came from.I believe Warthman (Ron) claimed 616, so I claim 617.
