Question How can we grow this community?
Codidact's communities have a lot of great content that is helping people on the Internet. Our communities are small, though, and sustainable communities depend on having lots of active, engaged participants. The folks already here are doing good work; our challenge is to find more people like you ...

Comment Post #283022 Oh wow, that's nice! Sunrise through fog produces such a neat effect. (And yeah, I'm usually not up at that hour either. :-) )

Comment Post #280746 There is in fact a [feature request on Meta](https://meta.codidact.com/posts/280055), with an associated [GitHub issue](https://github.com/codidact/qpixel/issues/370), to add more context -- either customized text or at least showing the category name. (I think being able to customize the text in th...

Answer A: 2020 - December - Macro Photography
closeup of candle flames Some time ago I asked a question about photographing flames without them ending up fuzzy and blurry. I took this picture during Chanukah 2020, using manual settings on my cell-phone camera, but alas I did not take good-enough notes about which exact settings went into thi...

Comment Post #278936 Thanks Olin. I was puzzled by the color, as it's one I don't expect to find in a forest. (It kind of makes me think of the *aurora borealis*.)

Comment Post #277196 *Decreasing* the exposure time never occurred to me, thanks! Even though flames do move, I didn't make the connection to motion blur. I will try these suggestions.

Question How do I take crisp pictures of flames at night (with a cell phone)?
When I take pictures of (lit) candles in otherwise-darkened rooms, the flames always come out nondescript (blurry?) as in the following example: candles in focus, flames not I took this picture with a hand-held cell phone. The subject is obviously not moving, so I could brace the camera someho...

Answer A: 2020 - June - Sunsets
I took this picture from my campsite at Pennsic in August 2019 at Cooper's Lake Campground in western Pennsylvania, US. Pennsic attendees mostly do medieval and renaissance recreation (to highly-varying degrees of rigor), hence the pavilions in the foreground on which you can see some banners. I to...

Comment Post #74975 Wow, that sounds challenging @scottbb! From your participation on the site proposal I had no idea you were displaced and tech-limited. (And presumably away from your camera bag, too.) I hope you and your family are well and that you're able to get back home soon.

Question How do we build our initial momentum?
Now that this site exists, how do we inspire activity? We've had one post each in Q&A and Gear Recommendations. Are there site-configuration changes that people are waiting for? (If so, just let us know what you need.) Did everybody get busy? Are folks just shy? One thing that might help is a...

Answer A: Status of moderation?
The focus now should be on building the site; we don't yet have much to moderate, after all. The admins (ArtOfCode, Luap42, and I) keep an eye on all sites to take care of administrative requests like configuration changes. That said, a community does need moderators from within its ranks, people...
