I agree- I don't think it is something you can successfully regulate, because A: some folks just aren't up skillwise yetOriginally Posted by David A. Goldfarb
B: what one person considers sub-par, 99 others might well say is excellent

You'd have far too many peoples' toes stepped on with some kind of quality regulation and prevent those lower on the learning curve from accessing the exchange. I just think it would be unfair for someone with 20 + years of darkroom experience and a gallery exhibition resume (for example) to get away with sending out poorly exposed, sloppily processed prints that needed spotting, regardless of the intended recipient. I just wouldn't want to have to be the policeman to make that call.
