Salutations, fellow explorers.

I have come here yet again, at last, 9 months after my last promotion. Of course, I am now applying for level 3.

Yes, I am aware I do not have 20 locations. It does not meet the ~~required~~ recommended amount. However, I believe that some other aspects of my profile will compensate for that fact.

Alright.. so far I have uploaded a total of 18 locations (16 of which are level 2+), and 51 albums. This number would be heavily inflated had I not broken my collarbone last summer which gave me no choice but to suspend my car insurance for the meantime (still suspended but I'm waiting to get a job hopefully in the next few months and I'll go wild exploring again).

Now, as usual, Quality > Quantity. I always make sure my photos look good (atleast to me) No blurry, misaligned shots with my thumb in the corner. I try to give the user a great perspective of what there is that site has to offer. I include photos of the POE, exterior, hazards, cool little items and details, etc. I like to arrange my albums in a way where the user is first presented with the exterior shots, and it slowly takes them through the location as I explored it. They usually end off with shots of those small details I mentioned earlier, if possible.

My locations are well documented as well. I try my best not to post exteriors. I would be well over 50 locations had I posted them all. I probably mentioned this in my previous election post but I try to make it a nice read for the user. I format the hazards and provide explanations, I try to get a history of the location if possible, I even have a section writing up the most recent POE and which I took as of what date, just to help people out. I also sometimes include a recap of my own personal experience while exploring.

Additionally, I'm not only a contributor of locations of albums on OAP. I try to integrate into the community as a whole. I'm active on the discord server, I speak to many of the members, I occasionally comment on albums/locations/photos, etc. Honestly I probably just seem like I'm yapping at this point, but I'm just voicing my thoughts out here.

I think that's probably all. Vote honestly and please provide me with constructive criticism if you don't believe I am suited for level 3. If you do bevieve so, then thank you for the support!

Thanks!

I could go either way on this promotion. Great write ups on the locations, some are not of high caliber. I'm going to vote no based on not meeting requirements and should reapply

Galleries are solid and member shows enthusiasm. I’m ok with the location count for a level 3 promotion.

Deserves it, even if the locations are a bit under. Lots of high quality photos and albums.
