Question- is black and white photography allowed? I see it reads that alterations other than brightening and sharpening and the likes are not allowed, but I have some photographs that I changed to grayscale and was curious if those were acceptable. If not it's totally cool- I've got many other color photos to choose from. =3

I'd actually forgotten all about black and white photography. I'll allow it. (:

Changed max photos per week rule from 5 to 7. 7 makes more sense since... 7 days in a week. It being 5 was kind of a weird remnant from the old rules that I wasn't sure whether or not to change.

Hopefully it's alright to post here. I noticed it's been a while since the last activity on this topic.
However, I'm very interested in creating my own photography thread here sometime. I think it would be quite fun to add to the photography forum <3
I do have a question about watermarks. What if the watermark is your real name? I know sharing personal information on the community is not allowed. Do watermarks fall under this rule as well?

If you have a watermark that has your full name, blurring out a portion of it may be an option.

Okay, so first name showing and last name blurred would be alright?

Yes, that's fine.
