Photographs of fans on Fanlore: A proposed update to Fanlore's Image Policy
Photographs of fans, whether they are images of cosplayers, group shots of a con gathering, or something else, are an important part of fandom's visual record and of documenting fandom.
However, we understand that deciding whether and how to upload photographs of fans to Fanlore requires consideration and care, with issues like privacy and identity protection to be borne in mind.
To help with this, we've drafted an addition to Fanlore's Image Policy with some guidelines on how to handle uploading photographs of fans to Fanlore, and things to consider. Please visit our Dreamwidth post for the proposed addition to the policy.
If you have questions or concerns about any photograph uploaded to Fanlore that may identify you, now or in the future, please contact Fanlore Policy & Admin using the subject "Identity Protection" and we will take steps to address the issue.
Update: Thank you to everyone who has submitted feedback on this policy. We have now closed the post to further feedback in order to work on revising the text of the policy.
