    I've got a web-site (never much liked flickr) I direct people to if they want to see some of my photographs. APUG galleries see my work first though. I value the feedback I get from the other subscribers. I fly an idea, or post not- quite-right prints, and know I'll get some thoughtful responses.

    Anybody who visits APUG more than a handful of times a year should cough up a subscription. It is CHEAP! CHEAP! CHEAP! for the immense amounts of information, amusement and support.

    If you can't afford a subscription, I wonder how you can afford photography? It is not, as a wise man said, for the faint of wallet.

    didn't mean to start something..

    OK.. If I want to show my friends and family my images this is what there faced with on APUG gallery:

    You do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    2. You are trying to view the APUG Gallery (which for bandwidth & performance reasons is only open to subscribers), you must be a subscriber. [COLOR=#444444]click here for details. [/COLOR]
    3. If you are trying to post a classified ad, you may be using an old link try clicking "Classifieds" in the main menu bar instead. Also, you must be a subscriber to post ads. [COLOR=#444444]click here for details. [/COLOR]
    4. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

    Flikr is an easier way to show SOME not all my work to folks. Does this make sence? I don't put anything on there there that I don't want snipped.

    I have been on disability for nine years, and this is well worth spending a miniscule portion of my meager income on. I also have a flickr account, and don't trust it, but trust the galleries here implicitly.

    Anything online can be stolen or misused. Don't trust anyone if that's a concern for you.

    Despite the changes flickr made that I'm really upset about, it is still a good place to put some photos you want to share. I use it to put up images that I use at LFPF or share with friends. If you use descriptions and tags, you can also learn a lot how other people use a piece of equipment, developer, film, location, camera, etc... I like following other photographers with related artistic interests as well. It's a big dose of creativity anytime I feel like it.

    This is still a good place to financially support even if you don't put up photos. It's probably less $ than a tv channel you like if it were possible to buy channels al le carte.

    Understood guys... I'll spring for an official membership here eventually. I have Flikr tied into my website. I have to appeal to the masses. As good as the scans are.. It still doesn't hold a candle to print from neg to fiber base paper.

    At least you have a good handle and perspective on your appeal as an artist...

    I think a lot of the members here, especially the paying subscribers, seem to recognize the enormously unique nature of this site in a world drowning in that other technology and so become very protective of both APUG and, by extension, its creator Sean as well.

    Some of the subscribers even voluntarily pay far more than the very modest yearly subscription rate because of that very recognition. And a desire to keep this place alive.

    Not saying you need to be like them. Just saying that may be part of the reasons why you're seeing such a reaction.

    To be clear ...

    No one minds it if you want to use flikr because of its advantages.

    We get a bit grumpy if you are trying to benefit from the advantages of APUG subscription (including image critique from APUG subscribers) without paying the small fee.

    What's to stop people posting links to their digital pictures on any of the photo shareing sites on A.P.U.G.?,
