The leaders walked through the crowd, out in the darkness

tell us why you created this community:
As I’ve been proclaiming in the promotions “Photo_Mayhem is a new community which has a primary focus on artistic incentive and expression.

community update

in three days, much has happened.

we have reached fifteen members, six of whom have been given an initial assignment.  as soon as other members submit an introductory entry, we can give them a task.

the userinfo page has been drastically changed since sunday.  if you were an early member and have not checked it out since then, the extra information may be if interest to you.

the community has been advertised in various places, facing various reactions from other users.  thank you to all who have been willing to give photo_mayhem a chance.

as for near future plans, once we have a few more members on their initial assignment, and once some have been completed, we will post our first open assignment.  (for more information on assignments, read the relevant section on the user info page)

both e and i have been pretty busy with our hectic assessment weeks at university.  however, there doesn't seem to be that much required of us here at the moment, with the exception of our own initial assignments and allocating more to new members.  i think we will get lucky and have free time, just as there are assignment rounds to organise.

how are everyone's assignments going?  i have made a start, but have so many ideas that i am having trouble deciding on 'one' thing to submit...

... and trouble finding the time.  tomorrow looks promising, however.
