    Hey guys! My report didn't seem to get through the moderation process. Please can I have some feedback as to why?

    It was deleted because it is not really what this forum is about.

    TBH, people on this forum like to see photos about derelict buildings, not 10 or so photos of some random girl in a dress.

    Another moderator suggested posting it in the 'General Photo's' thread

    Would it just be removed from there too?

    The photos were taken during an urbex in a derelict building.

    My point still stands that this site is not really about posting those sorts of shots. Flickr is full of random pics of people playing dress up in derps, which is where people can go to look at that sort of thing.

    Yes, the photos may have been taken in a derelict location, but they were not about the derelict location were they, they were all about a girl in a dress.

    If you take a look around the various threads, do you find many photos like that... Ask yourself why that may be.

    Shame as I was looking forward to getting more involved in this forum.

    I must say, @Togitha you've taken the criticism well. A lot of people would have followed this up by throwing a massive strop.

    Why not post up some images of the building itself on here, and a wee bit of history? I'd be keen to see your shots.

    No reason why you can't continue to get involved in the forum, you just need to post photos that are suitable for this forum.

    You just have to remember we are an exploring forum. Not a photography forum. Photographers are welcome enough if they want to get into exploring but it's created plenty of tension in the past when photographers turn up on here just to rob locations for 'shoots' so bare that in mind if you want to stick around and not upset people l.
