Rob, is there any possibility of uploading a higher resolution image of the Stonecutter Island sketch map ?  Even on  full Zoom, the writing is blurred and impossible to read .

I also have the opinion that too many poor quality or  low resolution photo images are beginning to appear on the Gwulo site , possibly because posters are not restrained from uploading poor quality images. Also  advice on how to upload a minimim quality of resolution appears to be lacking or not clearly stated. The photograph of Madam Lau Tsung Tai above by "Amy" is an example . The copy of the original photo was taken with the camera out of focus.

I suggest that this site is "policed" and low quality images rejected.  If this would present too much work for  'Gwulo" he could invite volunteers to help with maintaining  minimum standards.

Hi Chinarail,

Ideally all photos would be sharp, but I accept there will be some that aren't so clear. I'd rather minimise the barriers to taking part in Gwulo, and hear from more people, than turn people away.

Regards, David
