I'm realising there's a lot of ue stuff happening on Facebook. (The Oblivion State Facebook Group is quite fantastic :-) )

So there's a lot of fun to gain by posting ue reports and photos on Facebook. (Obviously)


If I post ue reports from a profile with my real name I'll be sort of documenting my own crimes, right? Yet I see quite a few seems to do so. Anyone of you ever get in trouble for it?

If I post on Facebook, or post links on Facebook, I give Facebook "a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use..." (According to their terms of use) And I don't want that. And yet I see a lot of pro photographers etc post stuff there. Are they ok with giving away license for their work? Or is it so much to gain from posting there that it's worth it? Probably, I guess. Or maybe many just doesn't think about it?

Have anyone found their works sold off? It's a risk vs gain assessment thingy, I guess, where the chance to show people your works goes along with the risk of expliotation of it. And it seems lots of folks thinks it's worth the risk. Maybe it's just me being odd.

I would like to hear you thoughts on this.

We are not criminals though, and I watermark my pics, simpe enough to do. If someone wants to steal your pic they will.

Also if you are worried about posting from your real name, make a profile for Northerngeek, and post from that. :thumb

Yes, I'm thinking of making an ue and photo profile and watermarking photos I post. It's quite likely I'll end up doing that. Just thinking about what to do before I decide I guess :-)

About the criminal thing. Many of the sites aren't completely legal to enter, I think...? So I thought posting photos from there is a sort of documenting break in thing? If someone decides to make trouble. But it doesn't really seem like people get in trouble for it.

Different countries have different definitions in law of what constitutes 'breaking and entering'/trespass, I've always posted stuff up on my regular profile for the 5 years I've been involved in this and never had any issue with anyone 'official'.

my facebook isnt my real name, its only for urbex ing and the occasional political share oh and moosic; this way it also gets you out of the drama of your real name!, I post non-urbex stuffs too but never really anything personal.

Facebook is a tool, some have become tools of their tools.

Ive had pics stolen;If someone wants to steal your pics a watermark wont stop em.. it means your doing something right!!!

Different I supposse if its your bread and butter as for "crimes"....

Its all Civil here!!!!!!!

      To all members 
      A little while ago, we started allowing the uploading of photos directly to the forum as opposed to requiring members to hotlink them from an external website.
      This is not exclusive to OS, however it is a major shift in how we operate and in our view, a great step forward that is of benefit to both our members and the forum itself.
      We have now had the opportunity to gather some valuable feedback, and although we can’t change the physical functionality behind the attachement mechanism, we have addresses another concern - the size limit of each upload.
      This has now been increased to 4MB, which we hope will be enough for our members. If it still presents a problem please let a member of the team know.

      When I got my fisheye, and as I am from Norfolk one of the first photos I took with it was a tractor! I was quite pleased with the results so I thought I would have a wander about this site. All are processed from 3 handheld bracketed images. I know a bit lazy. Sorry there seems to be a bit of a formula to the images but I hope you enjoy.

      St Mary’s in Clapham is one of the major Catholic Victorian churches of South London. It was opened to serve the growing numbers of Catholics living around Clapham Common in the middle of the 19th Century who came to work on the new roads and railways, as well as meet the demand by the rising middle classes to enlarge their domestic staffs. The church was designed in a Gothic style by William Wardell and has later additions by J E Bentley, architect of Westminster Cathedral. The foundation stone was laid on 2 August 1849 and the church was opened by Cardinal Wiseman on 14 May 1851. The spire is currently being restored by a Heritage Lottery funded project.
      I love climbing stuff close to where I live, I love that satisfaction of looking up at something knowing you've been on the top! I've been passing this on the bus for months and kept forgetting about it, hardly an epic but I think it's probably the highest structure in Clapham. It's certainly a local landmark around here as there are literally no other high structures around. I was surprised how long it took to get to the top, it's actually 170ft even though it doesn't look it. I popped up on the way home from a night out and enjoyed a bottle of cider up top, as you do like








      Thanks for looking
