Over the last few weeks I've been considering dropping IotD altogether. It's become a bit too much to handle, and I've gotten pretty tired after over six years of doing it.

Okay, knee-jerk joke out of the way, I have a question: Are photos from major news sites generally considered usable if a link to the story is provided?

All major news sites are not permitted.

I don't post on here very often, but I look at the Cellar IOTD every morning before work as I check my e-mail. It has become an integral part of my day! I often send links to particularly interesting pictures to my family and friends.
Drax Sunday Nov 4 11:11 PM
The question is what kind of pix are IOTD-worthy?

Read the archives...that's a good start .

My thought is we don't grab or even image link to the cool picture but actually toss in a link to whatever picture, news report, or article that has the cool picture.

I hope you don't quit posting the IotD and I think it is a great idea that you opened it up. I can't imagine the amount of time you have spent "searching" and/or even "stumbling" upon pics to post here. Some of them are quite awesome.
lumberjim Tuesday Nov 6 02:01 PM
is there anything in place to prevent 2 people from posting an IotD thread on the same day....apart from common courtesy? Also, I'd think it would be rare that 2 people were creating them simultaneously and do it by accident...but possible. then again....i guess it soesnt really matter if it happens...

Regarding LJ's point, I had an idea...

The problem is that the bulletin board software make it really hard to code up external things that work with it, and then when you upgrade the software the external bits all break randomly.

i like the rating thing.......i think everyone forgot about it though
Sperlock Saturday Dec 29 02:14 AM
I think if the rate thread selection was a bit more visible, it would be easier to remember. I had to look around to find it. Granted, I don't know if the board can be configured to move or change the appearance of the rate thread selection.

I don't rate any of them. I don't know what's going to blow your skirt up, just read them all. Does anyone come here and just look at the IOtDs that have stars?

So was there a decision made on posting two on the same date? And is it poor sportsmanship (or something) to post a Feb 5 image when it's still very firmly Feb 4 right next to the dateline and evening of Feb 3 in the time zone of the poster? I've got two images I want to post (one from a few days ago and one from today), but as I found them both through the BBC, it takes time to find the original source etc.... well now we're already beyond tomorrow and I think what's the point? Even if I manage to find they're OK to post this afternoon, we might well be up to March on IotD, and I don't think that's how it's supposed to work. That's like getting an advent calendar with preopened doors.
Clodfobble Monday Feb 4 12:19 PM
Meh--it's been a solid run for a few days, but there have been many days when nothing's posted. I bet there will be another gap soon. I don't always post stuff I find right away, I don't think there's anything wrong with just holding onto it for a few days and posting at the next convenient time.
monster Monday Feb 4 01:08 PM
mumble..mumble..OK. can't find original owner details anyway, but it's still a bit of a "spoiled surprise" that pics are posted 2 days ahead mumble..mutter..whine..etc....
monster Tuesday Feb 5 11:55 PM
One down, one to go -think the copyright on that may be against me, though.
xoxoxoBruce Tuesday Feb 5 11:57 PM
Tomorrow, as far as I'm concerned.

I already did that :p
