encouraging urgently member contributions of photos and wisdom

How to encourage member contributions of photos and comments? I mean there is such a wealth of knowledge and images available in the GW comunity, yet so much goes unuploaded.

Following a link from the new-to-gardening forum, I "discoverred" the Ms. Stewart hortiplex-style area and boy is it scary

c'mon- let's add our stuff to hortiplex
it's not that hard!

Hi Charles,

I've just added my photo of Rowan berries.

Didn't like that marthastewart site - very slow to load, nothing like as user-friendly as gardenweb. Browsed one or two species, found an error, but couldn't find any e-mail address for comments/corrections . . .

that's what I mean-
boy is it scary!

(that panther purr on the tellie should be a tip-off)

THank you so much Michael for sharing your Rowan berries. I really like your shots of the Juniper berries and mugos in the wild as well, but as a professional you probably have your images copywrited (sp.)
Please note that on Hortiplex the copyright remains with the contributer

Hi Charles,

Actually the main reason I haven't put many pics on is time - most of my pics are a lot larger than the 60kB limit on gardenweb, so it means spending a lot of time resizing them, etc., at lower density, before they can be posted.

If you want to see more of my photos, go to:

What a fascinating tour I've just made through your photos Michael. I wish you'll have time someday to reduce/compress them and post them on HortiPlex.

I suppose you've already been asked this question but, are you thinking of writing a book (I thought I'd find your name in Didier's book list on his site, but didn't) ? Maybe you've started one already... or want to keep this project secret...

Charles, sorry to have posted the link to Acer capillipes in the wrong thread !

Olivier.
