I’m new to this web site, and I would like to start posting pictures of some of my projects. I read the following message when I was about to post something: “Yes, I want to post my finished project that is made of wood.” So, I’m big on progress photos. Am I allowed to post progress photos, or only the finished project?

Thank you.

Progress phots are very welcome. Just remember that the first photo you upload will be the one that shows on the project page, so don’t pick the one of raw wood.

i think there is a limit of 6 photos you can upload on the project header, but you can also insert some int he write-up section using the “img” button.

And the warning is to ensure projects get posted that are actually done. There have been some that posted projects only in work, and that wasn’t well-received. So if you’re project really is in-work, a blog series is the way to go. Take pics, discuss, get feedback, etc. Then, when it’s done, take pics and post it as a project.

Looking forward to seeing your stuff!

Hi Michael, welcome to LJ.

The idea of the project page is to include only finished projects, that are made out of wood. Or include wood.

Progress projects can be posted in a blog. However, if you are posting the finished project, you can include the construction photos in the project page. I do usually that, since writing the wording and editing photos takes me more time than the completion of the project.

When you post a project, it is advisable to post one project, and not 3, 4 ,5 projects together in different posts.

Anytime any LJocker posts a project, it appears in the first page. If someone posts 5 projects, it will take 5 places in hte page. That will prevent other LJ´s projects to be seen in the first page.
On top of that, if someone posts more than 1 project, probably it will not get a lot of comments in each one.

Have fun, and enjoy the community
