There's some confusion about posting pictures in the Lounge. I would much rather have people post Disneyland pics here then post links and send traffic to other sites. MouseWait benefits when people stay on our site and we do not benefit when people are sent from MouseWait to other sites like Flickr. I do not consider it spamming the Lounge if you are posting live pics, that is what the Lounge is for and people love seeing them. Of course, this isn't the place to post 200 pics of your recent vacation (mousetopia), but in my opinion if you are posting live from the Park, you shouldn't be afraid that you are spamming, especially if you are posting with good intentions. I do not want to discourage people from posting live pics because then we lose good content in the Lounge. There is a Remove button on every post, so if someone is posting too much then remove the post or block the person. You can always unblock later. Having said that, exercise good etiquette when posting, loading 10 pics within a few minutes of each other quickly fills the first page of the Lounge with only your items which is not good unless you are breaking a major news story in the Park. Hope that helps!

Oh, so live photos from the park aren't considered spam and we shouldn't refer to sights like flickr? Awesome, thanks admin! - ScubaSteve028  835.5 #244 12:35AM
But remember - moderation is the key. Don't dominate the first several pages. In other words, share the road. - Experiment818  1647.2 #114 12:40AM
The FAQ says post in moderation. Live pics are awesome! But when the same two people have every post on the same 5 pages, because they posted one after another it's a bit much. I try and split my live pics between the lounge and MT. Unless I am reporting breaking news. - Mrsblue  693.1 #317 12:46AM
Great info! Might I add . . . LIVE to me means LIVE without special effects. I LOVE pics with special effects every now and then but feel happier and closer to the fun when viewing natural LIVE pics! - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #284 11:19AM
So do I that's why I usually just post pictures when I'm in the Parks - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #184 11:21AM
Exactly, live is live. Photos with a lot of app editing evoke a whole different feeling than a true live photo! Both are wonderful and I love seeing each. The biggest take-away here is quantity of posts and leaving space for other users to share. Photos of the parks, especially live photos, taken by MWers are what makes this app so great! - cynDOLEwhip  1175.7 #165 11:39AM
I am in complete agreement regarding live pix. When they're doctored up some look very fake. Maybe those should be posted in another tab. And when Admin says live pix that's what I think of. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #227 2:07PM
Love this comment. Some people completely missed the point of this post. Posting a picture of the sunny sky with the Mark twain at 10 pm is clearly not a live picture -__- - MayBie  1885.6 #98 3:28PM
WORD!! - donnievegas  1132.7 #176 3:46PM
Edited/special effects pics are my pet peeve when posting LIVE pics....lol - Alex   307.3 #942 3:47PM
Some of us don't get clear reception at the park and I'd rather enjoy the day then look for a signal to upload a pic. - RickChavez  3672.1 #46 4:01PM
If its not live-ish I would suggest posting in Disneyland talk. - MermaidWithShears  1025.8 #203 4:09PM
@Rick then you should use Mousetopia for not live pics... That way those than can post live pics can... its no biggie - Alex   307.3 #942 4:17PM
Like I said I'm new to this and in a post this morning I said I would be looking into different things. People still posted unnecessary comments when all I tried to do was say I was'not going to post many pictures. You were the first to welcome me here so you know I'm new here lol. - RickChavez  3672.1 #46 4:22PM
Why are you getting offensive when I'm giving you advise? - Alex   307.3 #942 4:24PM
I wasn't trying to be rude just letting you know were you can post without having issues... Then again you can't tell if I'm being rude or nice through the net... - Alex   307.3 #942 4:26PM
I don't know how you think I'm coming offensive. All I said was I made a post earlier and people posted unnecessary things. That's all. - RickChavez  3672.1 #46 4:27PM
Omg I'm over it!!!! Move along - Alex   307.3 #942 4:29PM
Easy there haha - RickChavez  3672.1 #46 4:34PM
o_O lol - Alicewhoareyou  2739.3 #55 4:41PM
Please dont tell me to "easy there" - Alex   307.3 #942 4:43PM
whoa, he's not being offensive. i don't know what's happening here. - nicoleface  1752.7 #106 4:43PM
I believe Alex meant defensive? - MayBie  1885.6 #98 4:46PM
Yes Mayie thank you sorry im addicted to MW and im typing and driving.. maybe ill stop till im able to type correct - Alex   307.3 #942 4:49PM
oh no, don't type and drive! that's a bad idea. defensive makes sense. thanks for clearing that up. - nicoleface  1752.7 #106 4:50PM
I was just about to say that MayBie, lol - Spoonful_O_Sugar  660.4 #335 5:04PM
Pics are pics as long as they are from the parks who cares as long as they aren't googled or copied from someone else sheesh... - PrinceTeaJack  948.5 #215 2:17PM
@rick i enjoy ur pics. please continue posting them and let negative comments fall on deaf ears :) - Kimantha  188.4 #2234 2:50PM

Excellent. lol - splashphotoCM  885.6 #227 3:49PM
Good! I enjoy the posted pics and that's why I come here. I'd much rather see a beautiful castle everyday than someones cupcakes from home! - 559MickeyLover  335.8 #777 1:09PM
Thank you Admin. The clarification is great. I love seeing the pictures and sometimes become tired of the useless banter. When you live 8 hrs away the pictures are your happy place. I always look forward to the pictures and somedays I feel there aren't enough.πŸ˜ƒ - PrincessAuroraMomma  600.6 #375 11:00AM
Thank you, this should stop certain people demanding that other certain people to collages.
- Lelundrial  820.4 #249 11:41AM
I think it's suggested NOT demanded. - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #284 12:52PM
I have seen some fantastic collages. They are great when I want to show lots of different parts of the same thing like the one Caramiapooh did of TSMM. - SueBayou  2019.0 #90 2:17PM
The man has spoken. Thank you Admin!!
- BaseballMickey  8088.1 #13 10:59AM
Oh good, thanks for clarifying. Things were getting confusing. It's like there are official rules and thenΒ guidelines thatΒ members make up and they contradict each other sometimes. - Sheilamo  318.2 #877 2:30PM
Thanks admin! As someone who doesn't go to the park often and probably won't for a long time live pictures are AMAZING! Edited or not that's what the majority of mw'ers want to see! - kritomiester  364.1 #678 4:13PM
Yes, it is very frustrating to put in breaking news or important info when all you see are photos with every single post. Also, while the block or remove feature is handy we shouldn't have to resort to using that just because someone cannot use restraint in posting. - Dahulagirl  1055.6 #194 12:18AM
