p.1 #1 · Is it okay to post one photo in two forums?


Hi, I am wondering if it is okay to post one photo in two forums? I have posted a photo in the macro forums, then in the thread, "Your best Nikon shots", is this okay?

That is what I was thinking, but do you think that it would be better if I said, "Same as Macro world" in the post?

I started a thread on the Macro forum focused on shooting with extension tubes. I also started a very busy thread on the Nikon forum devoted to Nikon manual focus glass. It happens that I often use extension tubes on those lenses, so in fact, I can post images on either thread or both. I'm inclined to not post the same image on both threads, but when I have something especially nice I will. There is no hard fast rule on this matter. However, I want to stay fresh with my shooting, so I try to add new material as often as possible rather than repeating older shots. I generally repeat myself only when someone has a question about a lens that I don't happen to be using much at the moment.

Have fun and keep shooting Julian. Sharing our work is great and so is developing relationships with others who share our passion for photography.

Thanks.

So what I am hearing is that it is okay to post one photo in two forums, but it is your personal preference to keep things fresh?

This is called crossposting. Fred may not have a rule against crossposting, but it is sometimes considered poor forum etiquette from a practical perspective. The reason is that forum software lacks the ability to link such posts so replies in one forum are not visible to people reading the post in other forums.

That makes sense, but it seems like people who want to see both macro and anything else on the Nikon thread would hang around in both forums, therefore they have probably seen the original post.
