Dear Café members and friends,

This post is just a quick reminder note about a few issues that the moderating team has noted recently.

First, we have had an increase of folks attempting to sell items outside of the FS area. Please note that our policies don’t allow this and while most of the infractions are with newer members we thought a reminder was in order. Even stating I am probably going to be selling this is considered a sale. Posting FS items in your signature is also not allowed. Please note our FS rules: https://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/showthread.php?t=54613

Second, we would like to remind folks that images should be 1024 at the widest or longest side, and please try and keep the file size down in size for folks who view from slower connections or also for those of us who now are having to deal with caps and monthly allotments. (I myself have in the past never been bothered to much by posts with 10 1 MB images except for taking a bit to long to load, but now with the new caps even on high speed lines, and DSL, we are all affected by this)

Please do try to keep the number of images down to 10 in each post as stated here in our netiquette area: https://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/showthread.php?t=130266 Feel free to start a second thread and label it part two if needed for a travel thread or other unusual event.

Please note that the Nikon Café is a welcome haven for folks to share their images and photos with each other and we are very lucky to have a forum where 99% of the time folks are civil and respectful to each other and we have very few instances of inappropriate behavior. Thanks for following our guidelines, and we truly appreciate the way the café community assists our fellow photographers both young and old, experienced and rookie, amateur and pro equally and with a great deal of civility.

We also admire the number of folks who help self-moderate by using the report post icon if they spot something unusual or out of sorts. It does assist the moderating team to have many eyes helping us out. Contrary to popular belief, we don’t see everything and can always use the help.

In closing, I usually do a "request for donations" post once or twice a year for funds since the café is free and the upkeep, servers, hosting fees and bandwidth adds up to a substantial amount of funds required by our owner (Patrick.) Also for those of you who partake of our free FS area, please do consider a donation to help out our Café expenses.

You may donate using the paypal button at the top of the page or you may also consider the mail method:

NikonCafe c/o GigaParts
Attn: Leigh
PO Box 11367
Huntsville Alabama 35806

Thanks for your consideration, being wonderful members of the café and taking the time to read my words, (And if you read this in several forums I do apologize, I usually sprinkle the post around for a week or two so everyone can see the thread.) If you would like to leave a note the thread in the office area is open for comment: https://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/showthread.php?t=301891
