Hi Aseem:

I am directly this to you because your the guy who runs the show, and a very good one at that.

Over the last few years, our membership here has grown manifold! When could be have dreamt that our membership would go past 1000 members! Let alone the figure we have presently.

I dont have a suggestion, but I feel we need to do something to the forum to make it a tad more lively, something interesting, perhaps something to do with photographs.

I am willing to make a contribution to that end, since its unfair for your to be spending everything out of your pocket, but how can we get something running like a.net, where photographers submit pics of Indian airlines, and someone screens them and accepts them or rejects them.

Ofcourse, that is my suggestion, anyone have some more?

Thanks again Aseem and the mod team for a good job done!

Regards
nitin

Hi Nitin,
Do you mean something like IRFCA? You can have a look here : irfca.org.

Cheers
Shivendra

He's certainly looking for that - in fact he's even offered to fund it entirely.

no need to fund it! Flickr is free, will just have to change the approval settings and make him moderator there.

I have promoted Nitin to the level of Moderator over there...and also changed the submission rules whereby photos will be sent for approval (mine as well).
Nitin please confirm if it is working at your end.

Hi Aseem -

How is this to work out? Can we (or maybe Nitin) create a FAQ or similar?

We can create submission guidelines over there. Like kind of photos we are looking forward to. Let Nitin come up with a draft.
Also, are Sameer and Spyderguy on that Flickr Group?

Hi all

Thanks aseem for the opportunity I would love to take up the role and come up with the guidelines. Initially they would be very basic. But however I am in italy at the moment and will have full internet access in a week. Till that time in the interest of the phptpgraphers, perhaps you could screen the pictures in the que. Again I apologise for the delay, but just finished my thesis and exams so am treating myself to beer, wine and food in sardinia!

Regards
Nitin

Certainly a good option. Anyone have any ideas on a free chat room add-on?

Folks! Inviting volunteers screeners to work along with Nitin. Here are the objectives

    To formulate the approval guidelines and those shall show up before photos are submitted for approval.
    And, follow those guidelines themselves.
    It is understandable that guidelines develop as we go along, so are amenable to change.

    Here is the criteria for the selection of screener! Please submit requests here along with number of photos accepted at Airliners.net and Jetphotos.net

Could we have another Flickr group, on which pictures which satisfy the new guidelines, will be added, while any Indian aviation related picture can be added to the current group. Currently, the existing group already has a lot of pictures (quite a few from me) which may/may not meet any quality criteria.

The new site could function like airliners.net, while the existing group could be equivalent to myaviation.

How about a store (online) to hawk merchandise!!! Wink

T-shirts, table mats, mugs, souvenirs, pins, DVDs of our air shows, etc.

Mebbe someone can volunteer to think of designs, print their pictures.

Easy , we should do that in cafepress.com. Maybe there is a local version of it in India and we can do it similarly. Can save on S&H

Let those that are in there, will remain and the new submissions shall be subject to guidelines. How is that?
