Welcome back everyone.
Please note that we are assessing each of you as you come back and upgrading your photographic experience levels. So if you joined as a beginner 12 months ago, but have not posted much since and now start posting, you will be upgraded to intermediate level. Or if you joined as intermediate, you will be upgraded to advanced.
Yes, we are making the assumption that you have been learning more about photography during your time away from Ausphotography. Our experience levels are primarily used to allow you to enter our competitions with other members who have similar skill levels. So by upgrading you as you return we are ensuring a more level playing field in our competitions. Note that if your future posts/photos are deemed to be above the level we have adjusted you to, we may upgrade you even further.
So welcome back, join in and see you on the forums.
