Update on some Google+ Communities
The Google+ Communities are going very strong and sill growing! I think it has only been a week or so, and here is a little update for you.
There is one broken bit that I’m waiting to get fixed — we would like to assign MORE moderators to help out with the flow. The two things the moderators are trying to keep up with is A) False Positives Spam (the algorithm is mis-marking many photos as spam, and mods need to manually approve them) and B) SPAM removal — there are a few out-of-context posts getting through. Anyway, all of this can be alleviated with more moderators… and I simply can’t add them to the bigger groups now because when I view the “Members” list, it culls out 95% of the members so I can’t set them to be moderators.
Anyway, here is an update on a few of the communities. The big ones are big parties, and the smaller ones are more intimate… both kinds are awesome in their own way!
The Photo Community – 21,000 Members
HDR Photography – 16,000 Members
Stuck In Customs Community (us!) – 1,500 Members
New Zealand Photographers – 485 Members
New Zealand Photographers Community Hangout
Monday’s show will be all about this smallest and most intimate community here, the New Zealand Photographers. We’re getting that show set up right now for you!
Daily Photo – The Paris Underground
One evening, we were in a bit of a hurry to get to the Arc de Triomphe for some sunset photos. I still have those photos btw, sitting here unprocessed, and I’m really looking forward to it! Anyway, there were a few of us on this little subway adventure and we had to make one of those long underground connections that requires you to walk for about 5 minutes through jigsawed tunnels. This is one of those tunnels… Matt Knisely and I made everyone wait while we took photos!
