Themed threads forum guidelines

Recommended Posts

Collections of things are nice, but any collection needs a few rules.

  • Quality not Quantity
    Try and keep the pictures in a themed thread good quality examples of the theme and don't just post up 25 mediocre shots just for the sake of it.
  • Diversity is Key
    Try not to post more than one photo from a location or of an particular item. Try and keep the photos different to what is already on the thread.
  • Short and to the point
    Don't write massive introductions to your posts on these threads, and please don't post any more than 5 photos at a time. I'm sure you have plenty of chairs, windows, signs and street art to share in your collection, but share it in the thread over time and not all at once.

      This website has many sections off the main exploration forums, all of which can help you with taking advantage of the many features it has. Some of these are cosmetic, some of them directly impact posting.
      These guides are located at http://www.oblivionstate.com/forum/information/technical-help/
      These will be updated over the coming weeks, however it would be useful for people to pipe up and ask any "how to" so we can kill two birds with one stone

      Endless Corridors..
      I've had a love of photographing corridors and other vanishing-point perspective shots for a long time now, long before I took a greater interest into the UE world, and old hospitals/asylums tend to present the best ones. Here are a few from different places over the years, feel free to post yours below too!

      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.

      I've got a bit of a thing for theatres and cinemas and this one had been tightly sealed for many years and had the reputation of being a real tough nut to crack. When I heard there was a whiff of a chance I realised that I had to act quick if I was to get inside this rather special place. I'm certainly glad I made the effort!
      Here's a bit of history n' stuff - 
      The ABC Cinema is Grade II listed. It rounds the corner of Lime Street and is one of the first historic buildings, still standing, that visitors see when leaving Lime Street Station.
      ABC acquired the building in 1930, known as The Forum, it opened a year later to become one of the finest cinemas of the era.
      The six storey exterior was designed by A. E. Shannon and its sleek portland stone has very little decoration other than motifs over the entrance. Despite this, the building remains a very distinct feature on Lime Street. The building is listed for its grand interior, which was later subdivided, which is said to remain one of designer William R. Glen's best cinemas.
      There's a news report from December 2016 reporting that the City Council had sold the building to Neptune Investments who say “The next major phase of Lime Street regeneration is now coming forward with the refurbishment and re-opening of the former ABC cinema building on the corner of Lime Street as a major new music and live entertainment venue for the city.”
      A planning application is due to be submitted shortly, with an aim of giving the city a venue of "international standing", that will see the former cinema converted to hold crowds of up to 1,500 for live performances in its famous auditorium, with complementary ancillary uses.
