Happy weekend everyone. Today we're doing a "Never Had A Feature" theme in the forum. Our tag is #jj_forum_1914. If you've not yet made it to a solo or grid feature on the main page yet, you're welcome to submit any images you want.
.
Already been featured? Today is our turn to support the folks that are still looking to get the nod. Do me a favor and like and comment the heck out of their images. 🤓👍🏻.
.
Thanks to @renataolivaa for her submissions and to @jj_editor_lotsofsushi for the assist on the feature. - @joshjohnson.

Hey everyone. It's @joshjohnson. This "Never Been Featured" forum is one of my favorites. Today we're only looking for submissions from you if you've never had a solo or grid feature here on the main @jjcommunity account. Post any pictures you want to #jj_forum_1914. As far as I know this image from yesterday's dawn theme is @sami421's first shot featured on the main page. Nice job Sami. 🤓👍🏻.

Are you new to the community? It's not as confusing as it seems at first. :-). Here's the deal.
.
Sometimes it can be hard to get your pictures seen and aren't we all always looking for inspiring photographers to follow? That's why I created the forum over 6 years ago. It's a place to come together for inspiration and encouragement.
.
Every morning, NYC time, we make a post announcing our new theme and tag. Your job is to tag images that fit the theme. You can use shots you have already posted but we really love to see the theme inspire you to find new shots. The @jj_editors, @kevinkuster and I scour the tag and repost our favorite submissions through out the day. Over half a million people might see your pic! Pretty cool stuff.
.
We are ALL about keeping things simple, but in the spirit of our motto, "Create to connect", we ask that you follow our only "rule". We call it the 1-2-3 rule. For every 1 image you tag, comment on 2 in the tag and like 3 others.
.
Glad you're here. Can't wait to see your shots. Speak up if you have questions or comments. We like to think this is the friendliest place on the internet. :-).

Such a strong image. Stunning. Thanks to @uhkriti for submitting it to the forum today and thanks to @jj_editor_heike for the assist on the feature. Evening everyone, @joshjohnson posting. Our tag is #jj_forum_1913. We'd love to feature shot today too. Just remember your 1-2-3.
.
Yesterday we got a little serious. We had an intense discussion about the future of our community. Have you added you voice to the conversation? We want to hear from you. Today I'm organizing all your comments so kevin and I can go through and really make the most out of your generous thoughts. Every comment out of the 750+ is going to be read, so make sure your voice is heard. Head over to yesterday's post and share your thoughts.

I picked this @aarondeppe image to feature because it really gives me the human feeling of dawn. It makes me think of that quite time about an hour after you wake up early. That point when not many people are up yet and the cobwebs have cleared from my brain. Love that time. Evening everyone, @joshjohnson posting. Our tag is #jj_forum_1913. We'd love to feature shot today too. Just remember your 1-2-3.

Gone fishing! I remember early morning fishing trips when I was little, but they didn't quite look this peaceful! This gorgeous photo of men rowing out on Brant Lake in New York is perfect for today's "Dawn" theme. I love the golden light and light fog lifting above the water. Congratulations to @shancroix3 and our fantastic Anarchy page @jj_folkhood for the original feature. .

Thank goodness things don't stay the same. Life is all about transitions. That's were we find the most beautiful stuff. The ribbon of sand where the ocean becomes beach. The flood of emotions you get when you drop your eleven year old off at her elementary school for the very last time. (Yesterday! 😢) Over and over life's transitions are where we find "the good stuff".
.
Today's theme is about that inspirational daily transition we all have experienced, "Dawn". Our tag is #jj_forum_1913. Thanks to @nnnance and @jj_editor_jay for starting us off with this perfect image.
.
Yesterday you guys blew Kevin and I away by your show of support. #JJ is in transition and the energy and thought you put into our discussion yesterday was super encouraging to us. Your love of our community assures us we're looking at a transition that is the dawn of something really exciting.
.
No, we're still not sure what it will look like. You're never sure about the look of the dawn till it comes are you? But we're so excited to see were we all end up.
.
We've got a lot of reading to do today! Please add your voice to yesterday's post if you haven't already. We will read every comment you post. And, from the bottom of our hearts guys, THANK YOU! - @joshjohnson and @kevinkuster.

I'm worried that we're loosing our way. That's not an easy thing to come out and say to the world. Nobody likes acknowledging weakness. But here's the thing. Six years ago I opened up to this community about my fight with depression. The outpouring of love from you totally changed my life and fierce honesty has been a guiding principle of this community ever since. So here it goes again. I'm worried that we're loosing our way. Kevin and I have talked about it and he agrees. It's time to get real.
.
So let's talk. Have you noticed a big drop in energy? Were you here in the earlier days? Do you remember the magic? What do you think has been lost? Why? Do you think we can bring it back? Do you even think we should try to "get back to the way it was"? Maybe it's time to leave the past behind and make something new? What do you think #JJ 2.0 should look like?.
.
It's time to face the music. Participation is on the decline. This community is too important lose. It's time to make a change while we still have the momentum to steer the ship. Maybe we need a complete refresh of our format and structure. Or maybe we just need some really creative ideas that bring a new energy to the classic #JJ we've known and loved? Kevin and I aren't sure. We want to know what you think.
.
So. . . let's talk. Please give us your brutal honest opinions. No forum today. We're 100 percent about talking this through today. Tag a #JJer you haven't seen in a little while, so we can get them in on the conversation too.
