Thank you for the long explanation!
I agree to some of your points and i do not agree to others. Let me explain my thinking in length.
I totally understand the need of keeping costs down and pictures that do not deserve to be on the site out from the site.
My problem is not "with" the moderation at this time (although i must add that if i already had to go through a screening process of sorts, before even joining the site, by my friend sending me an invite, why is moderating after that even necessary?) but my problem is moreover with the imposing of not that important photography rules. i choose the photos i want to upload carefully. There should a bit of leeway for artistic expression. I cannot respect someone saying to me that if i crop this photo just a bit to the right then it is okay. to me this is just someone with too much time on their hands and nitpicking on me. Let's be honest it does not change the idea of the photo at all if the horizon is 100% straight or not.
Also there could be a way of adding partial moderation. If someone has a nice bunch of photos then the moderation clause could be lifted and if users notice a photo or two from someone with bad quality they can report the photos for not abiding to the rules and then the moderation clause can be added to that account again. Just to throw the idea out there.
@Taurus717 Hey! Thank you for the feedback but this seems like unhealthy nitpicking to me. I'm a professional photographer, my work has been good enough to be published in newspapers around the world.
This feedback is not constructive at all. There is no bloody difference if the photo is leaning a bit more to the right or not. If I happened to hold my camera that way when i took the shot, so be it.
This type of "playing god" so that you guys start to nitpick what is correct and what is not just so much discourages using your site.
