Completed Model Gallery is for Completed models only

Recommended Posts

Two reminders ... The two Completed ship model gallery categories are for photos of completed models only. That's why they are named as such.

 

Second ... you must include the name of your model in the title of your gallery folder! Think about this one, folks -- when people search for a model in the gallery, what search term are they most likely going to use? That's right -- they're going to search for the name of a ship!

 

BTW, you don't have to put your name in the gallery title, since your folder and each of its images is stamped with your username.

 

PLEASE do not post albums of your work in progress!  This gallery is meant to display the finished models and not become a second redundant build log.  It just wont work!!!  

 

Thanks in advance!  :)  :)

 

If you have photos of your models in progress please post them in a build log or other appropriate forum category.

Ragrove, you need to start by clicking your avatar (in your case the shadow of the person) and go to your profile page

Then click "edit my profile" in the top right

Then at the top it says "my settings" and under that is a blue banner that has "settings" and "gallery" click on "gallery"

If you haven't added a gallery before then you need to add a new album.

Once you have done that you can upload by clicking on the little polaroid icon.

*Please Remember this gallery is for FINISHED models only, not for in-progress ships*

Foxy,

 

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking.   Are asking if we use Photobucket to store our pics on the site?   That answer is "no".  MSW has it's own system.

Just a quick question for the administrators. My Gallery photo's are up there for over a week now. I expected them to be there for only a few days at most.

Is it my job to remove them or do they get bumped off when someone posts a new set.

I don't want to take up the space while someone else is waiting in line....

No they are never removed.  As you said they will be bumped off when someone post new photos.  That banner just shows the latest images uploaded. Your photos will also still remain in the gallery along with the thousands of other photos that have been uploaded over the years after someone new posts new images.

I know you said that the ability to remove posts has been deleted. Does this include removing a single photo from within a posted galley.  I had mistakenly added a picture to a completed gallery post I wanted to remove. How can I do this if this function is available?

Hey guys and gals,

 

In recent months we've been having a lot of folks share images to our galleries, for which we are all grateful, but many of those images have not been placed into folders. In that sense, they're kind of like loose photos in a box -- once they get bumped off the first page of unsorted pictures, they'll be somewhere near the bottom of the box, where they'll become increasingly less likely to ever be seen again. Folders help people find your images when they search for specific models. So, create a folder, and remember to put the name of the ship in the folder's title!

 

Thanks!

Indeed.....everyone needs to set up an album for their photos.  One album per subject and only include photos of completed models.  No under construction pics as they should be posted in build logs.   A description of the project is also important.....what kit...MFG or if scratch, based on what plans and built with what types of materials etc.

Folks, we've recently had a rash of people posting images in the build logs sections that rightfully ought to go in the galleries. The operative word in "build logs" is build, i.e. a model under construction. A post in the scratch or kit build log sections that shows only a finished model is not a build log -- that's a photo that needs to go in the gallery. If you're worried that you can't post commentary in the gallery, fear not -- you can. And BTW, a post featuring a finished model and one or two in-progress shots isn't a proper build log, either. So remember, put finished models in the galleries and only post actual build logs in the build logs sections.

 

Thank you!

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
