OK… here goes the experiment!
Below, you will find a gallery of photos submitted for this month. (The format is somewhat different from the usual gallery for regular meetings.)
If you click on an image in the gallery, you will be taken to a page for that individual image. At the bottom of this page you will find a mechanism for adding a written comment about the photos or for responding to a comment that has already been made.
Since the “conversation” does not happen in real time, you will have to check back from time-to-time to see what has been said.
In order to make comment, you will need to provide your name and email address. Your email address will not be published. I understand that this is somewhat cumbersome, but it will help minimize spam comments.
I have set the ability to comment on the images to turn off automatically in 14 days. I have done this for security and, again, to minimize spamming, If the “conversation” is still actively ongoing after two weeks, I will extend the time.
Regarding spam… hopefully the spam filter and the requirement to enter your name and email will minimize the amount of spam. I will be checking regularly to delete the (hopefully few) spam comments that appear. But my apologies in advance if some spam does show up.
