How to Take Part in the 2016 Weekly Photo Project

How to Take Part in the 2016 Weekly Photo Project

First of all it is necessary to become a member of the Community.  It is not necessary to Circle the other members but if you don’t then you will miss out on some great photography as you will never see their non-project work.

  2. Hi Rob I had to leave a message on the 2015 page if you or any of the other moderators get a moment can you give me a heads up I'm having a problem accessing this page it let me follow but didn't switch over from 2015. Thanks so much, Robyn

  3. Hi Robyn King​. I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean by "switching over".

    As a moderator you have the option of posting "as the community" (something I very rarely do in any of the communities I moderate), or simply posting as yourself to the community.

  5. Hi debi scott you'll find the complete list if themes for the year in the "Theme list and Copy codes" section of the community along with an iCal link you can save to have the themes show up in your calendar every week.

  7. With so many changes to G+, I've never made a collection. Is there a way to post and create a collection for the year?

  8. Nancy Attwater I never have either but it seems to be the thing to be doing

  9. debi scott , I haven't only because there seems to be so many restrictions. From what I understand, you can't change the name/info after the creation and you can't add old posts without re-posting them. I think you are correct. It seems to be the direction that G+ is going.

  11. I do not see my photos on this page of "all posts". Am I missing something with my submissions? I went through twice, but I still could be blind.

  12. Debbie Ambrous I had a look at your profile and posts, and it looks like you've publicly shared your posts, but not shared them with the community. Try hitting the 'reshare' button and select the community in the "Share with" pull-down.

  13. Debbie Ambrous That's fixed it! :)

  14. I've tried to find out how to add a circle with all participants here, but I can't figure it out :-| Could you guide me on how to achieve this?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ståle Prestøy I do not think that that is possible any more. You will have to add them one-by-one. :(

  16. Ouch! Well, I'd better get started then ;)
