New explorer, a few questions

Hello! I've been exploring since I was a teenager but I just created an account. I've been reading all the FAQs and I still have some questions before I start posting stuff.

1) Is it rude to clutter up the forum with 2-4 threads at once? I have a couple of location photo groups I can post but I don't want to post too much...

2) I know the rule is not to post points of entry...one of the places I recently explored is a fairly small structure with a whole wall missing and all of the (visible from the road) doors hanging open. The exposed nature of the place is what I liked about it. Is it acceptable to post entry points in this instance?

Pls halp? I tend not to post on forums (but I really want to contribute to this community) so please let me know if I misstepped.

P.S.
Location is Florida.

1 I think most would rather see 2-4 threads rather than 60 oversized images in one thread

2 if the point of entry is blatantly obvious, there really is no problem showing it, really nobody will feel cheated out of an adventure

3 thanks for asking this, you can also send a message to a moderator if you have concerns about using discretion when posting certain content

Good couple first posts but if you post pictures in a reply to another picture post of yours it is the same as posting all the pictures together.

Generally it is best to make one post around one visit, one location, or one theme. You might also find it best to pace your photo threads out to just one a day or even less, just to give your work more ataying power. We had one user who used to strategically make sure his regional forum was clotted up with half a dozen of his threads and he would use all sorts of techniques to keep it that way; it was not appreciated.

Also consider posting in multiple forums, and replying to the various threads like the photo of the day or the scavenger hunt.


A lot of places I visit have doors kicked in, so dont feel the need to overthink that rule.
