1. If you post a picture, expect critiques. If you're looking for praise, good shot or bad, you've come the the wrong place 2. If you're a n00b, listen to what you're being told, we're only trying to help. Critiques in here on sugar coated. If someone tells you your pic sucks, it more than likely does for some reason or another. 3. If you're going to tell someone their pic sucks... at least try and give them a reason, and a possible solution. 4. Keep personal attacks to the main forum. I'm all for a little ribbing, but keep the flaming to a minimum 5. Critique the picture, not the subject. Thankfully OT is pretty shielded from search engines... but you never know who may stumble in here and read about you calling them a "beast in some of those shots? It's like quasimodo meets a capibara."
