Re: Picture Identification Game

Thought we said one could not rescind the floor. You can, however, post generic pics you find on the internet.

I’m afraid I have a similar problem. I have tons of pics of other places, but they either have little distinctive, or feature our boat, someone else’s boat or people, more than the location.

Re: Picture Identification Game

The penalty for playing but not being in-the-club with pics...is severe

Re: Picture Identification Game

Looks like fresh water with so much vegetation growing right down to it, and the docks arenít floating.

Just use google images or something. I don't think the rules of the game say they have to be your own pics.

Zanshin, pls correct me if I am wrong.

Rules? There are not specific rules. But the pics should be taken by members in my opinion. If it becomes post a pic from the WWW what's the point?

Re: Picture Identification Game

The rules have been asked and answered. I suppose Zan can change them at will, but I'd suggest it not be by mob consensus or squeaky wheels. I just realized that my pic of Virgin Gorda, right at the beginning, was one that was sent to me. I didn't take it.

Re: Picture Identification Game

That picture shows a location in Europe.

The internet isn't a "rules" type of place, so what I'd posted were just sort of guidelines to get going and to stay on path. Just like all other threads, if the "rules" get broken or bent enough the thread just dies out. But it really isn't good sportsmanship to post an answer without having a picture to post, especially since a google search of images for a place will be sure to turn up non-copyrighted images that can be used to continue the thread.

Re: Picture Identification Game

Minni Come on.... the "rules" can be changed and I think should be... and it should be that the photo posted has to be taken by a SN member. I say this because to me it's interesting to see where our members have sailed... and the photo skills as well. If I want to see pics of places around the world I can do an image search. Let's make this "game" about the members' travels.

I suppose since this was Zan's thread he can make the rules... or revise them. I yield the balance of my time to the sailor on his way to St Martin.
