There have been some changes to the critique group – +Colby Brown talked about them a day or so ago but this is one more reminder to everyone..and new people that want to start getting critiques…

Profile Tags, Hashtags and New Circle Shares

We are now using the #BTLcritique hashtag to spot those looking for Photo Critiques. Please utilize this hashtag and let others you see not using it, about it.

    There seems to be another silly limit in G+ keeping me from adding all of the circles at one time. AARGGGH. I added the first two circles, then hit some sort of limit. Any attempt to add more circles gets an error.

    +Charles Lupica Very common – You will need to wait 24hrs and the error should clear….

    +Charles Lupica All kinds of background security in place… just seems to make massive circle sharing and moves much more difficult….

    I can't add any of the groups – they give me a 404…. 🙁

    +Stuart Dyckhoff You will need to join the group here.. – it is usually updated weekly.. Then look for shares from +Colby Brown for the circles… basically he needs to add you to his critique circles to use the circle shares….

    I thought I add already joined – just tried again though 🙂

    And that said it would appear I can now see the groups.

    +Brent Burzycki +Colby Brown Perhaps I need to add the information to my about page but I've been disappointed with the total lack of response i get when I add the tag to images. I have to admit I haven't gone actively looking to comment on the images of others so perhaps that accounts for the lack of response. However, I thought the moderators were responsible for seeing to it that every hashtag got at least one comment. Not much use in having a critique circle if no one shows up.

    So far the group has only provided more people adding me to their circles; which is good. But it would be nice to post a picture and have some response.

    +Charles Lupica i think its all about what you put into it and how many you are sharing with….i beleive there will be upcoming changes that +Colby Brown will be making to make things a bit easier across the board…

    +Brent Burzycki I think +Colby Brown's last missive to get out there and comment helped a lot. Before when I a search on BTLens I found almost no comments. After Colby's last call for comments I could find anything that didn't already have enough comments. I think it may also have gotten a few people to reconsider belong because I've had a number of BTLens people drop me from their circles. I take that to mean they no longer want to take part so they are withdrawing. At least that's the way I chose to interpret it.

    Thank you for clarifying the procedure. I am currently waiting on my approval and should join the group pretty soon! 🙂
