There has been some talk recently about what kinds of photos should be posted on QWU. Back in May, 2009, Karen posted as moderator that non-quilt photos and posts are officially fine (read that post here). That policy still stands. However, since that time, membership has grown to well over 20,000, and the photos on the site number over 38,000.
When uploading photos to the site, we ask that you consider that these photos will be shown for all to see in the "All Photos" slideshow (some of you may not be aware that all of the photos you upload to Quilt With Us are included). Non-quilting photos are welcome, but please keep in mind the wide audience of these photos, and please limit the non-quilting photos in number.
For those who want their friends to be able to see a series of personal photos, we recommend a photo sharing site (such as Flickr). You can then link to your Flickr photos from your QWU profile or blog posts. This way, the photos only show up where you want them to, not in the general photos slideshow. This post is not meant to single anyone out, but just to let everyone know what the "rule of thumb" is. If you need help linking to a photo sharing account, or with any other aspect of uploading photos, please ask, and we will do our best to help!
