Dear in Christ,

If you have photos that you would like to appear in the official OCnet photogalleries, please email them to ocnet.photos@gmail.com with a thorough description.

Aurelia will be heading up photo development.

In Christ,

Is this for a strictly religious gallery (e.g., icons, church architecture, etc.), or also personal stuff (e.g., members, religious cartoons, etc.)?

I think we will just be sticking with strictly religious things at this point.

OK, so about those photos/photo galleries. And I haven't forgotten about you EofK, I'm gonna do a resize on the photos because they're massive. EVERYONE Keep those photos coming though as we need new content to fill the photo galleries. Also, if you haven't seen yet, there are photos from St. Michael's ACROD church in Niles, Illinois and from Fr. Chris' church in Birmingham, Alabama.

That's ok!  They are really huge pics.  BTW, we have some of our daughter's baptism now (just happened last night).  I'll email them to you as well.  I can resize them if you like.

Some of the photos from my parish are also that of the St.Nicholas Chapel that we have here (mainly the Pantokrator and the Platytera, iirc). I do plan on sending more photos of the Cathedral after the Nativity, after all the flower arrnagements we have get moved out of the way.

I also hope to take photos on one of our parish service days at a local soup kitchen. I just visited there this morning to deliver 250 pounds of rice, and I wish I had another extra load for them!

Re: The Galleries are back!

The Photo Gallery section has returned to Oc.Net through the hard work and dilligence of Fr. Anastasios our Webdespota. Submissions are now being accepted for photos to our gallery. I still have all photos that were previously posted on the site so no need to resend. If you have new photos the following guidelines should be followed:

1) Photos should be appropriate for a christian website

Appropriate types of photos:
a) church events (e.g. baptism, chrismation, wedding, elevation to priestly order (yes reader and higher fall in here), etc.)
b) Parties/Gatherings which take place on church grounds (e.g. super bowl party sponsored by parish, christmas plays, bible study, Christmas Pageant, Pascha B-B-Q, etc.)
c) 1 photo of each poster to identify said poster if they so choose. This will be kept in accordance with the "What does everyone look like" thread.
d) Photos of Christian sites and places (e.g. Vatican Square, Mt. Athos, The Phanar, etc.)

Inappropriate types of photos:
a) Multiple Personal Photos (non-church related),
b) Vacations not related to religion (no photos of the family trip to Disney World or the Bachelor party to Las Vegas)
c) Family Photos (we're not trying to host a gallery for personal use)
d) Adult Content (submitter of any of this content is repremandable by Administrative Staff if warranted)
e) Other pictures deemed inappropriate by administrative staff (Dorm parties, hanging out, drunken/lewd behavior, other pictures as determined by administrative Staff)

2) Since it was brought up as a point of concern, pictures related to alcohol at religious events will be accepted within reason (pictures of individuals taking drinks or having bottles on tables are fine, but any obviously intoxicated behavior will not be tolerated and will subject the submitter to repremand by the administrative staff). If you are not sure that a picture would be appropriate please e-mail or PM me with a description of the event and we can discuss it

3) Photo collections should not be posted in a thread. This causes the forum to eat more bandwith and can cause increased load times for non high-speed internet users.

4) Photos can be submitted by:
a) e-mail to ocnet.photos@gmail.com
b) Direct discussion with content administrators

5) If you have any questions or would like to discuss these guidelines further, please do not hesitate to contact myself or the Administrator of the Content team, Fr. Anastasios.

6) Submissions will remain the copyright of their submitters, but by submitting your content, you are granting OrthodoxChristianity.net a perpetual license to use the material.

7) Photos should reflect the site's mission statement: "Your Home on the Net for Orthodox Christianity."  Pictures should reflect the Orthodox Church in some way.  Non-Orthodox religious events are generally not under this definition, but if you have made a visit to historic or culturally significant non-Orthodox Churches or places, please feel free to submit for consideration.

Final Note: please PLEASE PLEASE submit photos to the gallery; we can't make this work without content submission from everyone. If you want to start somewhere, take some pictures of the parish you attend on Sundays before, during and after liturgy and submit those, its very simple, and will help to make the Galleries so much better.

Thanks very much for everyone's help

Will there be a separate gallery available for each user or will the pictures be gathered all together with no tags or signatures?

The photos will be separated into board categories and the sub categories. There will be tags on the photos to describe what the photos are and there will be a note relaying who contributed the photos. The final separations will depend on how many and of what type of pictures we receive.

I'm guess 640x480 would be the ideal.  Large enough, but not so large as to hog space and skyrocket bandwidth needs.

Yea, 640X480 is good, if you can resize them before you send them it would be awesome, but if not, I can resize them. Also, please include a label of exactly what the picture is so I can add a caption. If the caption would take a long time to explain or links to a certain thread explaining it or some such, please attach that as well.

Ummm, reasonableness and server space are definitely considerations. Alot depends on the number of people who are actually submitting. For now there is not limit, but if necessary we will employ either a limit or a process of gallery rotation.

New Photos have been posted along with most of the photos which previously appeared on the site. We have a nice gallery from Constantinople which is the newest addition to our photo collections. In the coming time, I'm going to be posting more Constantinople pictures as well as more pictures of Orthodox Churches. If anyone has suggestions for criticisms, please feel free to let me know via PM and please start sending more pictures.

Thanks!
