Q. What does FAQ mean?
The abbreviation FAQ stands for "Frequently Asked Questions". It is a term that has gained wide use on the internet and generally tries to explain in "plain english" some of the "geek speak" prevalent on web sites.
Q. What's the difference between a member "Showcase" and a member "Challenge"?
• A SHOWCASE is an event where mambers may present their images to the group. Any subject is OK and the image may have been taken at any time. The SHOWCASE allows members to present their photos and explain (if desired) their thoughts in approaching the subject.
 
• A CHALLENGE is just that - it challenges members to create an image on a specific topic during a specific time period. Challenges are announced well in advance stating the topic and time period. Usually, an outside "expert" is invited to review these images and provide positive feedback to the member.
Q. The LINKS menu lists a bunch of "Blogs". What's are they all about?
"Blog" is short for Web Log and is one avenue the DPCA officers will be using to communicate with the members. As an example, visit the "Tech Spot" blog to read the All About DPCA Blogs post.
Q. How do I submit a question to the Tech Spot blog?
Your questions are very important to everyone so submitting them is easy. Just follow the directions in the Welcome to the DPCA Tech Spot! post.
Q. How do I submit photographs(s) for a Club's Showcase and/or Challenge?
Everything you ever wanted to know about submitting images for a club Showcase or Challenge (including deadline extensions, file formats and sizes, etc.) are covered in detail in the Submitting Photographs to the DPCA post.
Q.How Can I Stop Receiving Group Email?
Club officers are often asked… "How can I stop delivery of the Clubs Yahoo Groups Email?" There are two ways:
  • The first is to leave the Yahoo Group completely - fairly drastic.
  • The second is to retain your membership in the Group but stop email delivery, choosing instead to read Group email at the website whenever you like.
The steps below explain each process.
 
A. Leave or Unsubscribe from Our Yahoo Group
The following text was taken predominantly from Yahoo! Group Membership Help at the following link: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/groups/original/members/manage/manage-26.html;_ylt=Anw3b0j2irFt9ELEsRFxCKd6xyR4
 
From the Web
  1. Sign in to Yahoo! Groups and go to the Digitalphotographyclub group on the web.
  2. From any page on the group, click the Edit Membership link at the top of the page. (Ok, let's be honest about this, Edit Membership is in very small print above the bluish bar that contains the Club's name. Look carefully to the left and you'll find it but it takes work.)
  3. Click the Leave Group link at the bottom right of the page.
  4. Confirm on the next page.
  5. The group will no longer be listed on the My Groups page, and you'll no longer receive messages.
Via eMail
 
From your email program, send a blank message to:
digitalphotographyclub-unsubscribe@yahoogroups.com
 
Just a blank message - nothing in the subject, nothing in the body.
 
B. Retain Group Membership - STOP or MODIFY Group Email Delivery
 
From the Web
  1. Sign in to Yahoo! Groups and go to the Digitalphotographyclub group on the web.
  2. From any page on the group, click the Edit Membership link at the top of the page. (Ok, let's be honest about this, Edit Membership is in very small print above the bluish bar that contains the Club's name. Look carefully to the left and you'll find it but it takes work.)
  3. Step 2 ( on the Edit Membership page) provides the options you are looking for. They are mutually exclusive - you can only pick one. Here's what they do:
    • Individual Email - Sends you a copy of every email sent to the Club's Yahoo Group.
    • Daily Digest - Sends you a single email each day that contains all the emails sent to the Club's Yahoo Group on that day.
    • Special Notices - Sends only messages marked as SPECIAL by Club officers. None of the regular email traffic carries this specification.
    • Web Only - None of the Club's Yahoo Group email is sent to you. You must visit the group on the web to read the mail.
Once you set your preference, be sure to click the Save Changes button at the bottom right of the screen. If you don't press the button and you leave the page, your change won't be saved.
 
Via eMail
 
You may wish to remain a member of the Group but reduce or eliminate group email by changing your message delivery options via email instead of visiting the site on the web. To do so, send a blank email message - no subject, no body to the following address.
  • Individual Email - digitalphotographyclub-normal@yahoogroups.com
  • Daily Digest - digitalphotographyclub-dailydigest@yahoogroups.com
  • Web Only - digitalphotographyclub-nomail@yahoogroups.com
