Membership Changes!

So here we are yet again! Thanks to people who think it’s OK to log on to the site and take multiple images and post them to other sites to boost their own ego I’m having to re-evaluate who can access what on the site. I don’t mind people using the original images on this site, if they ask and credit the site, but to just blatantly take images by bulk, remove watermarks and post elsewhere is just unacceptable and damned rude! I know once images are out there on the net it’s hard to control them, but some people just take the piss!

Therefore, with immediate effect membership is restricted and will be subject to approval and a one off subscription charge of  £25 ($25). I will also be making much more content members only going forward with less of the original content available publically.

To the existing members, contributors, donors and friends, firstly sorry I’ve had to do this as I value all your input, knowledge and images you send for the site. I know who you are and your membership is valued and will continue without restriction and you should be able to log into the site as normal. Other members will also continue to have access for the time being, but at the end of April I will be removing members that aren’t active on the site and they will have to register again and be subject to the subscription charge. Can I ask that all members that want to continue having access please login at least once in the next few weeks please?

Again I’m really sorry to do this, but a small majority have ruined it for all the genuine supporters and fans out there, but I hope you understand the position I’m taking. Any issues or questions, either leave a comment below or contact me via the contact page.

Thanks again for all the support of the site.

Kamera Club Membership Update

A note to all current members and non members thinking of signing up to become a member:

By signing up as a member you agree to follow the copyright & disclaimer details linked here. Failure to do so will immediately terminate your membership and get you added to a blacklist and banned from the whole site. It’s not much to ask and 99% of you appreciate the site and it’s content, but failure to follow these simple rules will get you blocked!

Would You Sign Up?

Now that the site has been up and running on it’s new hosting for a while I’m thinking of making a few changes. One of these changes I’m considering is to allow membership to the site, so that members could see extended content.  I’m not planning on making you pay to become a member (yet!) and a lot of the site content would still be available to none members. But by using a simple sign up to become a member you would see additional content such as high resolution images, extra videos and a few other things I’ve been thinking about. I’m looking to do this on both this site and my Just-June site as well.

I’m interested in what you think, so you can either anonymously use the poll to vote below or leave a comment or both! FYI the members area is already active, just no members to see it 😉
