Will there be a Christmas Calendar this year?

Unread post by scanavphoto » Sun Sep 15, 2019 12:03 pm

To be frank: I don't know if I can be bothered.

The reason for that is simple. I spend a lot of my time and effort in a) finding slides in the most dusty and, in some cases, dubious places b) cleaning them c) scanning them d) identifying time and place etc

Then when I share them on the calendar, I find that there is always some twit who grabs them and reposts beyond my control without bothering to ask. Those of you who have asked, have always received a yes. It's all the other killjoys that p*ss me off. I find the slides in the most interesting places, including fora and groups where I am a member. And as the photos are watermarked, well, you can run but you can't hide.

I'll have to think about what to do, but right now I think I'll make a Christmas Calendar for my grand kids instead.

I really hope you do make a calendar this year. It's always very interesting. As for those idiots who steal your work - send them an invoice.

It's like opening your prezzy under the tree and finding a lump of coal :(

I really appreciate the effort and time you put into the Christmas calendar, and am outraged at its abuse.

I hope you will reconsider for those that fully appreciate and enjoy your effort, without feeling the need to lift it.

Regards
Grant all equity and dignity.

...hi Kjell, I am so sorry to hear about the theft and copying of your pics of the advent calender 8-[ , maybe as a consolation prize, give us a collage of pics one day per week, even that would be better than nothing. Trust that you would reconsider, but if not, I respect and understand your point of view. Take care and happy clicking!

Your Pics have brought back great memories of a bygone era that many of us here really do appreciate - perhaps if you started each series with an express instruction that they are not to be redistributed without permission I am sure those wishes would respected, common courtesy unfortunately is an assumption that would have held up in the same bygone era.

Baie dankie for your support. There will be a Christmas calendar - with the caveats you suggest. I will probably send tsotsis instead of bills, but I hope it'll do the trick :shock: 8)
