We have LDB moderators, but there are only like 4 of them, and hundreds of thousands of places for them to check.

Most of the moderating in the LDB happens because of user input -- if you see a problem, report it to a moderator.

Just to clarify for my slow brain - each gallery can only have 25 pictures, but one could create multiple galleries (if absolutely necessary) and post more than 25?? So once a location has 25 pics it isn't "closed" to more pictures??
I think this is a great idea (assuming I'm understanding correctly). I personally spend a lot of time arranging photos, choosing the best ones, and making it flow as much as possible - I get really annoyed when there are 110 pictures and half are blurry, 1/4 are landscape, 1/5 are the same shot, and 3 are actually interesting!!
When I'm bored at work (which is often) I'll often hit the "UER" button at the top of the page to see random pics - sometimes I find cool locations I wouldn't have otherwise found, but more often than not I keep clicking and keep coming up with crap. Is there any long term goal to delete pictures from locations that are of no interest to anyone?? I'd volunteer for this job, as most of the time I spend on UER is browsing the LDB.

Bratchny, you are right.

As for deleting "crap" -- it's such a loose definition that I don't even want to get into the war of what is crap and what isn't.

I like the UER button too. Thanks for reminding me again! There's a lot of pics here so it's a cool potluck approach to finding a one that otherwise may have never been seen.

Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

This isn't working. Case in point:

45 redundant photos spread out over two different galleries.

Good idea, I'm tired of seeing shots that should have been deleted

Thanks for the hint. I have deleted the second gallery, and notified the creator.

Having only twenty-five pictures in a gallery leaves more for another trip or for the other people that can visit the place.

Short and to the point is a great motto for the galleries because I am also of the opinion that alot of people just post them for the hell of it and be damed with the quality or content of the shots.


Definitely a great Idea Av-X,

The 25 pic limit is an excellent idea, but unfortunately there are a lot of people on this site that are very stubborn/determined. Instead of 1 gallery of black/blurry shots, we now get 3 or 4. Perhaps an additional limit might be placed on the DB allowing only 1 gallery to be made per day or something similar. You're right about it being far too much of a gray area to have anyone actually edit the photos except for the original creator.

From what I have noticed, at least in the Canadian DB. The amount of pictures has gone down. Some do make more then one gallery, but most of the time I will say that it is deserving. Considering the content and the quality of the pictures.

I have looked at every location in Canada, and when there is a new gallery I look at them. This is how I can state my opinion about the Canadian content.

I think a gallery limit per user, per location, per period of time should be instituted. Something like 2 galleries to one location per 6 months. 25 pictures is more than enough to document a single visit, and if you're visiting somewhere more than twice in 6 months there's bound to not be anything different in that space of time.

What about locations that are massive in size.

2 trips gives you 50 pictures. I think that's more than enough for any location, if you leave out pictures of boring shit and stick to the documentary stuff. I try to do this myself, I go through the pictures I take of a trip and ask myself if I'd find them interesting if I were going through the gallery. A shot of a calendar or some stuffed animal in a closet of a huge warehouse isn't really necessary.

There are special cases where more than one gallery from the same trip is allowable. But even if a place is massive; think about it -- nobody wants to go through a gallery of like, 200 photos.

Two hundred pictures is a bit too much.

You should just make it 25 per user account maximum per location. It's just going to take up moderators time deleting multiple galleries. Nobody needs more than 25 pics of a location. I can only stand 1 or 2 pics at most of peeling paint.
