TSS Photo of the Day

#1

Post by Gordon » Tue Nov 26, 2019 5:19 pm

We have added a new Photo of the Day area in our forums. https://theskysearchers.com/viewforum.php?f=103

Here's our plan on how it will work.

1. There's a forum for members to suggest their picks for the TSS POTD https://theskysearchers.com/viewforum.php?f=104. These will be our starting point for the selection process.

2. If there are no member selections the "TEAM" will pick.

3. Any images taken by one of our TSS members is eligible. This includes all categories of images, Deep Sky, Lunar, Solar, Solar System, and Nightscape.

4. The selections can be from any one of the forum areas and the image DOES NOT have to have been recently taken or posted.

5. We will add a "flair" (small icon) in the users profile as recognition that the member had one of their images selected.

6. We have also added a "PHOTO OF THE DAY" area (see the top of the page) that is similar to our Articles and Reviews area. A link to the original post will be included.

We hope everyone enjoys the great images our members post on TSS!!!!

I think it's a great idea Gordon; kinda like APOD but on a more personal level :D I just hope it's not too much for you and the rest of the team to keep on top of...

Now to go look at some photo's, or get back to work. Decisions, decisions... :lol:

No. This one is pretty easy as long as we get some help from members with photos and suggestions.
