    WOW Jeroen the site looks amazing! I am sorry for being off the grid for a while but I was very sick, had that car accident, and am going through a divorce. Well now all of those are over I am ready to get back in the game if you will still have me

  • OMG! I did it again, you guys you are going to have to use your tags to help this old lady remember to use hers @member_deneen-brazille

    • Sweet @deneen-brazilleDeneen,
      There is no need to use your own tag, tags are only meant to address a person.
      I am sorry in case we were not clear.
      When you use the tag format to mention somebody, the person in question is being notified that you did. So the tag system is only to alert those people that you wish to read your comment.

    I was not meaning social media I was just meaning being social period. I would put a little rule board or something of the sort that explains that this is a place for local guides to connect, collaborate and learn from one another. That the group will be as strong as the team makes it

    That way they have a clear understanding of what the group is…[Read more]

    Oh well that is very cool. So this is just shoot the breeze and is for everyone then correct?

    • Correct. Given your comment, am I right to assume you meant this to be a group focused on Social Media? If so, that topic falls under our Community Faculty.

      Do you feel we should give this group a different name @deneen-brazille?

    You guys are doing a really great job of staying on top of everything and keeping an awesome attitude through such a stressful process

  • I was logging out and I just wanted to say the landing page LOOKS AWESOME YOU GUYS!!!!!!! Here is a high-quality piece of vector art that you guys could probably;y use as something cool it is originally a background

    • Thank you for your encouraging feedback. Also, thank you for sharing this cool art work. I don’t seem to be able to open it (yet another bug?), but first would like to ask, what is the source of your image. We are paranoid about breaking any copyright rules here 🙂
      LOL

  • Okay, guys, I let my graphic artist have the best camera so I took the Canon Rebel T3 I am going to need some help with that. I think I learned what 360 is duh? Panoramic is that right?

    • @lucio_v is the head of our photography faculty. He is a professional photographer, so he should be able to help.
      Other words for 360 photos are Panos or in Google terms Street-View photography.

    thank you for this group it will be great as it grows!

    • As we do not allow for social banter on the various forums and study groups, (Academy Rule) we felt that our Academy should have a place to chill and relate to one another when we are not talking serious Local Guides stuff.

  • I am so excited I have really wanted to improve my photo skills as a guide is there any tips anyone can give me? Also what is the 360 photo everyone is loving?

  • Oh headmaster I just read your comment and I was just chosen to be a community moderator here on a volunteer basis so do I need to leave the group since I don\’t have a local guide page

  • I am excited about being a community moderator. When I tell people about it they think I am crazy because they can’t believe I volunteer. I tell them how is that any different than playing a video game or sitting around for hours on a computer? That at least I am doing something that is fun, educational, helps me come out of my comfort zone, and…[Read more]

    • Deneen, I totally agree. There are lots of hobbies around and some are more meaningful than others. Connecting with people is a healthy and rewarding way to spend one’s time. Particularly helping people. It has been scientifically proven that it makes us happy!
