I think if new member steps up to be moderator, there's no problem from Joel's side to promote him also as new mod. just those new persons should be found at first.

"Ask to join" is already tried thing - all registered mods got overloaded by messages about new member waiting approval. Epic mess.

I still think "person can post 1 post per 24h" would be one of the best settings for us (and easiest to Google to implement). Sad story that Google doesn't want to help nor upgrade systems. As G+ is probably last thing where to put loads of money, it might even be understandable. But if communities die.. probably will G+ die too..

About this community

*COMMUNITY RULES AND ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY* ============================================ Due to the overload of spam like videos, ads and other posts that are ignoring the rules in this large community (this is the largest b&w only community on G+) in a structural way, I've decided to apply a zero tolerance policy: If you don't comply with the rules in a deliberate way I will remove, ban and report you without any warning. *POSTING MORE THAN 2 PHOTOS A DAY WILL RESULT IN HAVING YOU BANNED FROM THIS COMMUNITY WITHOUT ANY WARNING.* ============================================ *RULES* Welcome to this community on Black and White Fine Art photography. Since it's not always clear what fine art photography is I've come up with this definition adopted from Wikipedia: "Fine art photography refers to photographs that are created in accordance with the creative vision of the photographer as artist. Fine art photography stands in contrast to photojournalism, which provides a visual account for news events, and commercial photography, the primary focus of which is to advertise products or services" Let me add to that: Black and White Fine art only for this group. Colors or selective coloring will not be accepted and removed. So how do I decide if a photo is fine art or not? The following are my main criteria, but it is to the discretion of the moderator to decide in a highly subjective and eclectic way:) a. Originality b. It must reflect a personal vision and has a personal look and feel to it. c. The more the photo doesn't reflect reality the more it tends to be originating from a personal artistic vision the more it can be considered fine art. d. Quality - What is quality? I can't answer that but you can read 'Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance by Robert Pirsig' If you post or take part in any discussion, please note the following community rules: 1. Black and White only fine art only! 2. Since this is a community feedback of others is very much appreciated. So please don't post and run but take the time to check out the work of others as well and give some feedback. 3. Please post the photos in the appropriate folders (seascapes/architecture, etc.) to make it easier for all of us. 4. To ensure the high quality in this group, please only post your best work. 5. If you want to receive serious critique on your photos then post in the folder Photo Critique. But realize once you post there you will get serious critique! 6. No excessive posting: 2 photos a day is the maximum 7. Unsolicited ads or other promotional announcements will be removed. 8. Upload and share only your own work, re-shares of other photographers don't fit the objective of this community. It is also not allowed to link to your own photos on other photo sharing sites 9.Community moderators will reserve the right to remove photos if they don't fit the objective of this community or if they are offensive or inappropriate.
