1. only post if you're posting a photo. no exceptions.
2. when you post a photo, you must indicate either that you took the photo OR where you found it. if you post a photo that you did NOT take, make sure that you get permission from the author/copyright holder before posting it here.
3. please post thumbnails that link to the full size photo.
