READ ME FIRST

Ok, I'm using the power now and creating what some have asked for - a sticky for photos of West Virginia. Don't fall asleep those who have been asking for this - post your shots!

A few things to keep in mind, however, and I will enforce them...

1) Post only your photos. Photos that YOU have taken, or, that you have permission to post from others. In other words, don't post pics from some stranger's Flickr or Pbase account without their nowing about it, or the pics will have to be deleted. If you do have permission to post someone else's shot, it's always nice to credit the photo properly.

2) Please DO NOT post large, full resolution photos! Yes, there really are still people who use dialup to access the Internet, and also folks on slower broadband connections. They probably don't want to spend the better part of an hour waiting for massively large photos you've posted to pop up. So, PLEASE, resize your photos to no larger than around 800 pixels in size. Too small and people can't see the details, but too large and it bogs down the thread. Remember - 800 pixels, max.

3) Please limit the number of shots you post per reply. For now, I'm putting a limit of 5 photos per post. If you post two dozen of the things in one post, again, it'll bog things down. Pick your most interesting shots and do those, leaving out the fluff. Remember to put a short caption or blurb above or below each one to describe the location so visitors know what/where they're looking at.

and yes, I know... but only ONE more...

4) Post pics that are relevant to West Virginia, please. Nice panoramic scenes of the Mountain State. Skylines of the cities and towns. Quaint downtowns. River scenes or State Parks - that type of thing. I mean, ok fine, we all like bees and daisies, but you can find those just about anywhere and they don't I.D. where you're looking at. So, think before you post and try to post only shots that really make you think, "West Virginia" in some way or another.

Ok - start posting!

Katie,
There have been many request from all over about placing stickies so folks can post pics of their home locations. This way instead of having posts and threads everywhere there is one place.

Greg probably saw your item and said I will pick this one. See we think your just special

I've posted these on other threads but here are some good pictures of Huntington:
These first pictures were given to me by a friend, Jamie Lofiego. They are beautiful shots of Huntington that he uses as back drops for his show, Up Late that he does through Marshall University. Here's a link for his show YouTube - MarshallUpLate's Channel
