I don't know how many of you are members of other Photography and Modeling web sites but I am because I want to reach out to as many people as possible to avail myself of as many opportunities as possible to work with quality models and have my work viewed.

There are several sites out there to chose from but none of them seem to come anywhere close to matching the quality and professionalism of Glamour 1 but I am curious to see if anyone else has noticed the escalating levels of infighting and discension that is occuring on a daily basis at one of the popular Photography and Modeling sites.

Am I the only one or have others noticed this as well?

I've noticed that go on with several of the photography posting websites. Seems to depend on who you are and how many friends a person has on each site or in this case, not have.

the in fighting happens on a lot of forums. The sad part is that it can ruin a good forum to the point where people stop coming by.
I agree that people with disagree with each other. However you have to be adult about it and accept that your opinion is not always the only one.

Unfortunetly or not, there are many people with opinions that don't know the facts and also those who will give opinions for only one purpose. To show what haters they can be.

I think you're on to something here, Dave. As far as other topics go (ie: model topics) there are other sites with valuable info, but for photographers this is a good place to be. Most of the photogs I see on other sites are, um, shall we say lacking in professionalism and experience that I would find useful.

I remember several years ago when this board moved so quickly we moderators could not keep up with the flaming and bantering. At times it got real ugly! All day we needed to log on and delete posts. It was so bad we had a banned list. Thank God those days are over. I think all boards go through the cycle. When that type of behavior is rearing its ugly head, once you speak out, you become the next target. Just be smart and stay out of the drama so to speak.

This is the only site where I even browse the forum. On the other two sites I am on its just to link and show some work. I have a strict no drama policy in life and everywhere.

But just to create controversy I will say: George Bush, economy, Iraq. Discuss. LOL

It probably happens on any "art" board. Here is my THING, I'm really proud of it. I think its one of my best, ever...

But two people point out flaws, little things, nit picks. Then a third person posts what a piece of crap he thinks it is and how I should find a new hobby.

So I call his mother names.

poof flame war begins.

[grin]

I am an admin on a photography board that bills itself as a strictly learning/critique board. Every photo posted will be commented on by others. The problems we have is when a working pro gets comments from someone they feel is beneath them. We (admins) have to send lots of email back patting to keep some of the working pros from walking away as we need their comments for balance. That's what I like so much about the "rule 10" here. If I have nothing to post, do I really have the experience to dis that other shooters work?
