Photo Gallery (few & simple) Rules - READ THEM!

Post  Mountain Elves on 14/1/2009, 13:00


The Photo Gallery rules are few & simple and I've explained the reasons why we need them.
*The Forum & Photo Gallery are not connected with one login and therefore require separate user registrations.

  1. You will need to be a registered member of BOTH the Santamakers Community Forum and the Photo Gallery before you can upload photos. You will be added (manually) to a special Santamakers Group in the Gallery that will allow you to create an album & upload photos. This will help cut down on spammers and hackers trying to access the Photo Gallery. (Believe me, we get them every day) I'm sure you will agree that the only nekked photos we want to see in the gallery are of Santa!
  2. Santamakers is comprised of two member groups: Santamakers & Guild Members.
  3. Santamakers are registered Gallery members who are also registered with this forum. Members will be moved into a special "Santamakers group" in the Gallery and have access to upload to Personal Albums Only.
  4. Guild Members will be moved into a special "Guild Group" in the Gallery. The Guild Group has full gallery access & allows Guild members access to sell in the Gallery Shop & upload to all public albums provided.
  5. Members must use the same username on both the Santamakers Forum (this forum) and the Photo Gallery. This serves two purposes. It will help our visitors avoid getting confused and hopefully help customers find you faster. This will also make it a lot easier on the managers when dealing with problems, deleting spammers or even the occasional person that doesn't plan on sticking around and just wants free image hosting to display their photos.
  6. Only Guild Members can upload to Public Galleries. Registered members that are not in the Guild will be limited to uploading to Members Photo Albums section only. Public Galleries are created by the Admin. & include the Guild Shop, See the Artist, Santamakers Community Gallery etc...
  7. Photos uploaded to the gallery cannot be larger than 1 MB in size. Larger photos will be rejected by the server. Also the Gallery is set to display images no larger than 1024 pixels. This will help save space and hopefully help the Gallery to load much faster.
  8. For security reasons, Only image/video/audio file types are allowed. All other file types (doc/txt/rtf/pdf/xls/pps/ppt/zip/gz/mdb) will be rejected and deleted from the Gallery to avoid spammers & hackers from being able to gain access to the server in order to upload malicious files types.
Attention Santamaker members already registered to the Santamakers MSN & Yahoo Groups prior to 1/1/09: You are already considered a Guild Member as soon as you register to this forum! : Please click on GROUPS after joining to request to be added to the Guild Group. You will need to be in this group in order to post to the "Meet the Artist" section and to sell in the Santamakers Guild Shop as well as having full access in the Photo Gallery.

New Members may request being added to the Guild after 10 posts to the forum.
You can click on the "Groups" link at the top of the forum at any time to see if your username is in
the Guild Group after 10 posts, view fellow Guild Members & request membership to the Guild Group. Once accepted to the Guild Group on this forum, you will be placed in Guild Group on the Photo Gallery. If you have not been added to the Guild Group after 10 posts please click "Join Group" under Guild Group membership.

That's it! Enjoy! Very Happy
