A while ago someone sent me an e-mail saying that their photos were not appearing on the SOTA Flickr Group. The confusion had arisen because there are two Flickr groups with very similar names:
http://www.flickr.com/groups/sota/ :a personal group set up and run by John GW4BVE. This group is not linked from SOTAwatch at John’s request.
http://www.flickr.com/groups/sota_pics/ :the “official” SOTA Flickr photo group which is linked from SOTAwatch.
Thus if you want your photos to be seen by the wider SOTA community, be sure to include them in the sota_pics group as well as any other groups that you choose to use.
