Dear Nick,

the group name is 200+ favorites and photos should have at least 200 Ys and not 200 views. If you wish to be part it would be my honour.


Nick Weall on September 29, 2011

NoleDjole ~ Hello Boris ~ My apologies I had indeed misunderstood things as 200 plus favourites is quite an achievement. If you wish to re-invite me ~ I'll gladly accept and if you do not wish to then I'll accept that too ~ Best wishes ~ nick

Boris Jurišić on September 29, 2011

I can't do it anymore but you can ask me to so I will accept.

Thanks in advance


Nick Weall on September 29, 2011

NoleDjole ~ Hi again Boris I've applied but wuthout attaching the shot, since it is buried over 3000 plus shots back and I'm not going to try scrolling through all that lot :)

Once you have accepted then I can upload this shot easily.

Many thanks ~ Nick

Darek Narwojsz, ~ Hello Darek and thank you very much too for your kind compliments. (Yes the birds very much help to make the shot what it is )

all the best to both of you ~ nick

I am still worried about the extremely low view count on this one dear Nick, I think it needs a boost :))))

Now that almost everyone has posted almost every photo they have ever taken onto a group, maybe normal service will soon be restored!

Nick Weall on October 28, 2011

Amelia Royan This shot used to get thousands of visits every month until earlier this year when GE decided to no longer display it as a large image, now visits are a handful each month ~ Never mind it has had its day I guess. As to groups I replied the other day to you with my thoughts, basically most of them are a complete and utter waste of time. I notice one particular group that often advertises itself in the comments pages as having 12000 plus shots ~ what is the point no one is ever going to wade through the group further than the first three of four pages that come up ~ Interaction on most groups is also non existant ~ maybe the true purpose of groups might develop as time goes by ~ Somehow I doubt it

So many thanks for your valued visit here this morning :)) xxx
