Can or will anyone tell me why the pastel forum is now moderated? Was there a problem? I saw no notice of it anywhere until I submitted my latest reply. Am I the only one that noticed this?
See my gallery and blog here:
I'm not sure what you mean here, Tom, by "moderated". The forum has always been somewhat self-moderated, but if there are any posts or members that are out of line, they are usually contacted.
If you have any problems, please contact Courtney here: http://www.artistdaily.com/members/cjordan/default.aspx
I'm one of several docents, which means that I try to help out where I can, but if there is anything more serious, then please contact Courtney Jordan directly.
Nature knows no borders
I spent a lot of time on line composing a reply in the pastel forum to the "spray or not to spray" thread. When I tried to save it I saw a message on the screen informing me that messages from this forum were now being moderated.
I did a lot of research in formulating the message including giving links to help answer the thread originators concerns. Now I'm rather reluctant to make any further posts.
Ah, Tom I've had that problem as well. This is a problem in the software. It seems that a post that has a few links in it will sometimes get hung up & kind of shelved, to be posted at a later time, sometimes a week later,. It really has nothing to do with moderating the forum, as Karyn has told me in the past that it was a software glitch.
I'm very discouraged by the way my painting photos turn out. The colors
are frequently washed out or distorted even though I don't use flash.
Then, when I upload them and reduce them in size (100 kb max) they lose
definition. I see other people's paintings which are sharp and clear,
so it must be me. Any advice would be welcome.
