23. MW101 w/SICπŸ€: {Photo etiquette} We've been seeing for some time now in the lounge, that we have become a little sloppy with the MW Rules and FAQs---that we are all so quick to tell new users to read. I thought it would be nice to review what Admin asks of us when it comes to posting photos. πŸ”΄We are asked to refrain from posting photos that are not ours. I understand that we all often post something from the Disney Parks blog or the like when reporting exciting up coming events or news. In this case it is vital that we give credit where it is due. Not giving credit for others photos could cause problems for MW. πŸ”΄Please remember that when posting more then one photo that is ether not yours or that is not live, please consider using photo collage apps (PicStich, Diptic and many others. They are great fun! haha). : ) πŸ”΄We LOVE live photos and would hate for the efforts of those in the parks to get pushed to the next page and might not be seen. It states in the Rules and FAQs that any post not following the rules can and will be removed. Thank you so much for your time!! : )

LittleMermaidLover, I understand where you're coming from but inside jokes and friendships are why most of us stick around this app! (And why soooo many others have left...they want to joke around with their friends and are a little annoyed by people constantly telling them to not act like friends) the thing is...a lot of us have become friends. Real life friends! I'd say if it makes you feel excluded, maybe ask! or like Friendly Mouse says, do a little research! I joined just under a year ago, didn't get a lot of the banter but enjoyed people's personalities so much that I made an effort to figure it out. I guess I'm trying to say that the lounge would be a boring, vanilla place if no one could ever mention a funny thought, inside joke or mention something funny from the past. Is that how you are with your friends?!? We've actually gone through a lot together!! Every single one of us is waiting with open arms for a new person to bond with and share things just have to be willing to bend a tiny bit and shake things off sometimes. I really don't think that's too much to ask. - MissMolly   1280.2 #113 7-7-13 3:22PM Like(23)  Reply

Well said, Miss Molly!! I only get to DLAND once a year. I love getting on this site and living vicariously through those who are there! - SmallWorldSister  11.0 #9178 7-7-13 8:11PM
I like wine 🍷 and thanks, SmallWorldSister - MissMolly  1280.2 #113 7-7-13 8:18PM
Trust me I don't take it personally! Like I posted to meridafan, I was just posting an observation that's all. Everyone has chimed in with their observations so I was doing the same thing since everyone is so open here. Just wanted my opinion heard which I don't think is asking much either 😊 - LittleMermaidLover  290.4 #889 7-7-13 10:17PM

And now ban Throwback Thursday too? That's what Instagram is for. Just creates too many posts to sift through. - LilSterner  4769.8 #20 1-17-13 9:47AM
Yes and yes! - cesium55  531.6 #347 1-17-13 9:50AM

I love the addition of the dots too. Helps to emphasize the different points! - LilSterner  4769.8 #20 1-17-13 12:36PM
Maybe we need another retro pic day for everyone to get it out of their systems. - Armenda  1153.8 #130 1-17-13 9:13PM
Oh I would love a Retro Pic day! Great idea! - Scrumpy_N_PansShadow  36.7 #5011 7-8-13 1:28AM
I also think that when a new person asks a question, people shouldn't jump in with their witty answers that are inside jokes only certain members know. Sometimes I see a question I also would like to know about but people start doing their banter back and forth with their friends completely ignoring the question - LittleMermaidLover   290.4 #889 7-7-13 2:46PM Like(6)  Reply
Like someone saying Buttercup? Sorry I do agree but I just could not help myself. A lot of these "inside" jokes are all posted on mousewait. I normally will try and search to find out what they are talking about if I was not on at the time that said event occurred. - friendlymouse  727.9 #226 7-7-13 2:56PM
That is just going to happen on any social media, and it is best just to take it as good fun. some people take it personal when it is not, many people here have known each other for years so they joke. best to have a great sense of humor and join right in. I have read my share of posts wrong before too and almost (i did say almost,lol) got butthurt but I realized I needed to just read for awhile. and if someone wants to make fun of me, thanks, it will make me laugh too. don't worry, all new people eventually learn all the fun stuff, that is why it is so cool that this app teaches us all so much. - secretagentangel  1357.4 #107 7-7-13 2:59PM
I agree it is going to happen regardless and I'm not hurt at all, just wanted to remind everyone it can make people feel excluded! Maybe just acknowledge the question at least before going off on random tangents? - LittleMermaidLover  290.4 #889 7-7-13 3:08PM
I think we are a bit of a random tangent type of group, lol, but answering the question first is always best, then the person asking can either read the rest or go read the next post. - secretagentangel  1357.4 #107 7-7-13 3:11PM
But unless we all remain perfect strangers with no attempt at getting to know one another or forming friendships, this is really a given. And most of that back and forth stuff generally is under one thread, so if you don't understand, it is easy to just skip over. I don't understand some stuff sometimes (Shh! Don't tell my husband or kids I said that!), but I either figure I don't have to understand everything, or I could ask a question to help me understand. Anyway, don't know if I'm helping or not, but we're all human and none of us is perfect. We're just doing the best we can. - MeridaFan  3506.1 #32 7-7-13 4:39PM
I totally get that meridafan, and I agree. I was just voicing an observation I've made just like others have done about what photos should or shouldn't be posted. As a newbie, it's hard to feel like I can jump in sometimes. Thank you for posting a respectful response! - LittleMermaidLover  290.4 #889 7-7-13 5:38PM
Also see my response above :) πŸ‘† - MissMolly  1280.2 #113 7-7-13 7:33PM
I understand this totally. I asked what "RAK" was because I couldn't find it in the MW FAQS. Some of the responses, not all, were sarcastic as if I was supposed to know. - Tinkerluvr  83.3 #3684 7-7-13 8:34PM

Am I the only one who can just scroll past the things I don't care to see and move on? I know there are rules for a reason but it isn't going to ruin my mood if I see someone posting a photo that isn't live or seen as acceptable. - lizzie2thelou   48.9 #4493 1-17-13 5:47PM Like(4)  Reply

If you think I do these for my own benefit, you are greatly mistaken! These are meant to be helpful tips and reminders on how to use MW! And these are supported by Admin. You could have just scrolled by this as well! πŸ˜„ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4357.5 #22 1-17-13 5:58PM
It's hard to scroll past when the whole first page violates this and MW I loading slowly to get to more posts - cesium55  531.6 #347 1-17-13 6:08PM

A 100% is a lot. It assumes facts not in evidence. I for one did read the rules because they suggest it for your 1st introductory post. I was welcomed and complimented on my 28yrs as a guest. - Midasgold  605.2 #297 7-7-13 7:20PM
and if you read the date on these posts you would realize this is from six months ago and that the rules of the lounge have change since then. thanks for reading them though. - nicoleface  1749.9 #78 7-7-13 10:46PM
@Midasgold If I may make a suggestion, you may want to just pause a moment before posting or maybe just read through the lounge some because you are coming across in a way that you may not realize is not positive. Just a helpful suggestion. - MrsSchnooks  3008.7 #38 7-7-13 10:58PM
A pleasant reminder - thank you :) I know that I have other apps (Instagram, Facebook occasionally) that I can spam with non-live photos (and I do, frequently) and photos of things not Disney related (shocker I know, lol). I know we all love to share with THIS family, because we really are something special - but somethings are better left off MW :) xo - Lola027   452.5 #431 1-16-13 11:40PM Like(2)  Reply

but how do we nicely say, hey 8 photos of _______ are too much, the best I can see is please do a collage or something. I try not to post more than four, but if it is a special occasion (like johhny depp, heehee) there can be more. I think the bottom line is what my teacher used to yell "COMMON SENSE, PEOPLE" every time we did not use our brains. If your brain says maybe not, then maybe not. very tricky, because with photos, some people can get intimidated too to not post when they see so many great ones. we need a happy balance. Thanks for the bump by the way. - secretagentangel   1357.4 #107 7-7-13 2:35PM Like(2)  Reply
I agree. I like to post a lot in the park when we visit, but we live in Washington and are not there everyday. It gets frustrating when others who are at the parks everyday bump others pics with their 10,000 pics. Use some common sense. We enjoy the pics but we do want others to see the ones we share too. - dimplesdanie  1236.7 #118 7-7-13 2:52PM

Ok, I think that's where the confusion was. Since the FAQs say that photos posted in the lounge should be live. So as I understand it should be live UNLESS it is a Throwback Thursday photo posted on Thursday? Correct? - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #934 1-17-13 11:51AM

I don't mind seeing old pics of what DL and DCA used to look like.

I have been posting pictures from a recent trip (that I took) to DL Talk--taking care not post them to DL Real-Time. However, the FAQ's *do* say that DL Talk pictures "should primarily be live pictures from the Disneyland Resort". My take on it was that this (how I was doing it) was fine, but that say taking a picture of a Mickey Mouse T-shirt in a department store was not. Am I wrong here? - #1DisneyDad   227.4 #1545 7-7-13 3:49PM Like  Reply
MouseWait has always been about live pics, it's not an Instagram or Facebook so 'not live' pics should be done in moderation as to not bury the live pics. Most just post live pics in DL Talk as the line between live and talk is blurred. Yes, birthday cakes, Mickey shaped Target stuff should be in The Hub which is another chat part of the lounge. - Linzee  1003.7 #164 7-7-13 3:56PM
You are right. Here's a way to describe it, from most appropriate, to least: 1. Live pic from park 2. Non-live pic, but still in park 3. Non-live Disney shirt in department store 4. Hidden Mickey made of cheerios in your cereal bowl. :) - Alicewhoareyou  1500.1 #93 7-7-13 3:58PM
I've always gone by what if everyone posted whatever I was posting rule. If I'm posting live or semi live, and everyone else was, than that would be exactly what the app is for. If I'm posting pic of my trip to target where I saw mickey or my hidden mickey in my lemon, and then everyone else did too, then the lounge would be full of non live and really non helpful pics. that's why I mostly stick to live. - madsdad  1846.8 #75 7-7-13 4:03PM

While I get the spirit of the original thread comment, I would also like to point out that some of the most stunning pics on DL Talk aren't strictly live either (as it takes time to process them).

I don't get a couple of things and have been here for a while and made a few posts. When you view the hub or Disneyland talk or live many of the same posts are on each section.

I don't think throwback stuff is against the rules,and it seems that people really enjoy them. I especially enjoy the ones where I learn something new about Disney history. When you are in the hub you can see all the lands, or if you just want to see Disney only stuff you can be in dl talk, or if you only want to see live pics you can go to real time land. Today real time land is also black pearl land which is exceptionally pleasing to me. - madsdad  1846.8 #75 7-7-13 4:31PM
DL Talk and Real-time automatically feed into The Hub so some posts can be found in multiple lands. As for "Throwback Thursday" it has been accepted in the past (but I haven't been on for a couple of weeks so maybe people have changed their minds). - LilSterner  4769.8 #20 7-7-13 4:32PM

Technically, they should go into the Hub.  DL Real time is for live pictures.  I have been guilty too for the TBT in the wrong land.  But post them to the Hub.  I made the Hub my primary land and you see everything.  If I just want to see real time I can go to that land.  It just makes it easy to sort and helps keep live pictures from being buried so quickly. - AZDisney  610.3 #296 2-8-14 10:42AM
E-Ticket yes.  Under LilSterner's reply. - AZDisney  610.3 #296 2-8-14 10:44AM
Okay found some. I think using #TBT and #FBF will allow people to scroll past if they want to and it harder to scroll posts that are not live and people just posting pictures when none is needed.  Lastly some of us can not post live and next day and week want to share. Disneyland talk land is perfect for that.  Disneyland live is perfect for live pictures.  Also since I am at home more than in the parks I love almost everything posted - E-Ticket  1293.8 #109 2-8-14 10:47AM
I only saw that someone asked that it be done away with. I've only posted in DL talk land, not the DL live option, but will post throwbacks in the hub from now on, no biggie 😊 I think with all the hype of people posting throwback pics, though, a bit more definition of what "throwback" means is necessary: it's meant to reflect a considerable amount of time lapsed. 😎 - apesandmonkeys  6521.6 #12 2-8-14 10:48AM
We all love the way way throwback pictures, like the ones from before I was born kind!
